COMMUNITY CLIP: Why I Love Bend, Oregon – Rhianna Basye

A sense of community in Bend, Oregon

What makes Central Oregon so awesome? We asked the local experts: our team. ⁠

In this Community Clip video series, here’s why Rhianna Basye, a broker at Fred Real Estate Group, loves Redmond, Oregon. In a nutshell, it’s the sense of community and opportunities for giveback.


“When we give back, help out, and do good, we feel more positive. Better yet, the more each of us helps, the stronger our community grows. Giving is a self-fulfilling prophecy of goodness. There are hundreds of worthy causes all around us. What’s yours? Start big, start small, do what you can, when you can… Central Oregon, we’re better together.” (Source: Bend Magazine, How To Give Back, Get Involved And Help Others In Central Oregon)
