Kris Helmstead

Personal Bio
I grew up in Eugene, Oregon and went to college at Oregon State in Corvallis. I fell in love with Bend from the first time I came to visit, and I’ve now been in the Central Oregon area for over 10 years.

I enjoy the outdoor lifestyle in every season, whether it’s snowboarding, mountain biking, or exploring a new hiking trail. When I’m not spending time with my family or working on projects around my home, I love grabbing a beer with friends and watching the game. In my past career, I spent time traveling the country working with brewers and love to talk beer and travel. I am very familiar with the local area and have extensive knowledge of neighborhoods, seasonal events and activities, and all that Central Oregon has to offer.

Coming from a family of brokers and builders, I have always been drawn real estate. Nothing is more rewarding to me than working with a client to find their perfect home and helping navigate the exciting process.

Please let me know how I can help you with your home buying or selling needs.
