That Furrow Crew: John Furrow & Laura Hughes

Simply put, John is an amazing realtor! We both sold our existing home and purchased a new home through him and couldn’t have asked for a better experience… We couldn’t have asked for a better realtor. We’ve recommended him to friends and will continue to do so.” – Judd & Kelly

John is the best real estate professional my wife and I have been associated with when buying a home. He helped us buy our dream home and facilitated everything from the initial showing, to home inspections and even working directly with our mortgage company. This is our fifth home and the best experience ever!” – Bob & Lisa

It never, ever felt like we were working with a salesman. John is straight up, genuine, obviously enjoys his work and is a pleasure to get to know and to work with. We highly recommend John!” – Paul & Tracy


That Furrow Crew – Personal Bios:

John Furrow: I am blessed to work with and for some of the greatest people around! Over 90% of my clients are repeat and referrals which I hope speaks volumes about the service I offer. At the tail end of a 20 year career as a “UPS Guy” in Arizona, I started into real estate as an investor and landlord, and decided the fun shouldn’t stop, so I earned my REALTOR’s license in 2005 and moved to Bend in 2008. Over ten years in real estate now, I have never stopped learning through continuing education and certifications of course, but most importantly from the experiences and people I serve. If you are considering selling or purchasing real estate, I would love to listen to your goals and help you achieve them.

Laura Hughes: I first discovered Bend in 2009 and immediately fell in love, it felt like home. This past summer I moved to Bend with my wonderful family, my amazing husband, teenager daughter and son and our dog. My husband got a two month head start in Bend while I wrapped up my job, put our house in Scottsdale, Arizona on the market and packed up. I know the pressures of trying to coordinate the closings on the house you are selling and the house you are buying so you have a place to live and only have to unpack the moving truck once!

My work history is diverse but always centered around customer service, it’s kinda my thing! I was a sales associate in department stores, including Nieman Marcus in my early years. I moved onto the hospitality industry and worked for US Airways and as a concierge at the Hyatt Gainey Ranch in Scottsdale. I was able to use my problem solving and detective skills as an Identity Theft Resolution Specialist by helping victims of id theft clear their names. I have a passion for alternative medicine and my favorite job was working for a naturopathic physician for four years. I got some invaluable hands-on experience with homeopathy, herbology, natural remedies, iv therapy, and acupuncture. I believe in healthy balance between main stream and natural medicine.

I worked in the back office at Arizona Best Real Estate where I learned about the real estate industry and became familiar with real estate transactions. I am excited to be partnering with John Furrow and work with clients. His expertise was invaluable as our Fred Real Estate Agent in numerous ways. Not to mention, he is just an awesome individual! I look forward to assisting others in finding just the right house for them, so they can make their new house into a home.

Favorite thing to do in Central Oregon/Bend?
A perfect “staycation” for me would be spending the day climbing, biking or skiing with my family and friends, then toasting the day (and planning tomorrow) over dinner and one of Bend’s finest hoppy beverages at one of our 382 breweries! Okay, I over exaggerated. The number of breweries in Central Oregon has not gone into the triple digits yet…

Ducks or Beavers?
I root for them both…unless they’re playing ASU – Go Sun Devils!
