Sit back, relax and take a deep breath — Buying or selling a home can be challenging, intimidating and highly emotional BUT not when you work with us! We love our job, where we get to be the real estate experts taking care of all the details and fine print so our clients can focus on what matters most to them.
We are true Bend locals. Abbie is a native Oregonian and Rick’s a transplant from Santa Cruz, both have called Bend home for 20 years. You can trust we know the ins and outs of all the neighborhoods, what to do, and the best of what Central Oregon has to offer.
We always bring a professional hardworking and can-do attitude with us into every aspect of our lives. Before we worked together as Team Sams we gained some of our most valuable skills operating and owning successful businesses. Rick was a general contractor for 14 years so his extensive knowledge of homes, building practices and remodel advice is gold! If he doesn’t know the answer he knows where to go and who to ask to find out. Abbie’s years of experience in marketing, sales and office management contribute to her ability to keep clients in the loop and the transactions flowing seamlessly. Combining her thoroughness and attention to detail (nicknamed Eagle Eye) she guarantees the documents and contracts are accurate and everyone involved stays on task by having clear timelines and expectations laid out.
Lucky for our clients when we mix all of these forces together we form one Super Agent!!
Building relationships is the key to building a long term successful business. With that in mind, we aim to give our clients a real estate experience we would expect, one that is enjoyable and gratifying.
Don’t take our word for it though, our happy clients speak for themselves:
”I could not have been happier with Team Sams…They really listened to me and always had my best interest as their first priority….above and beyond in everything that they did…found me the perfect new house and then sold my current house at full asking price in one week…efficient, thorough and smart….on top of their professionalism they were just a joy to work with which made the whole process actually fun.” – Kristin S.
“Team Sams helped my son and his fiance find an affordable starter home…impressed with Rick’s diligence…particularly confident in Rick’s advice because of his past experience as a contractor…two months later I had Team Sams sell my house and find a new home for me…Rick made my home search enjoyable, he went out of his way to find just the right property for me, and Abbie made all the detailed paperwork and contracts a breeze.” – Kathy H.
” We had very specific parameters in what we were looking for and were out of state for most of the process…..complete trust in Rick’s advice because of his expertise as a builder and his thoroughness. The entire process was really enjoyable due to Rick’s no pressure style, quick responsiveness and willingness to go the extra mile. Rick and Abbie are an impressive team….they handled the purchase of our new home perfectly!” – Mike & Anne B.
