Taylor Otter

Central Oregon has grown up with me, and I with it. It has shaped me into the water-loving, outdoor enthusiast that I am today, and continues to surprise me with new life and growth around every corner. Helping my clients find more than a house is my goal, because it’s so much more than just a house; it’s a home that will support my clients’ lifestyles and their goals for as long as they want.
