JUST ANNOUNCED: The 2021 Best of Central Oregon

The 2021 Best of Central Oregon Issue is here and we’d like to thank all our clients, business partners, and community champions for voting!  

Every local business should consider themselves winners, in our opinion. It’s been an unprecedented time and especially challenging for small business owners relying on community support to stay open throughout the pandemic. And while it’s not behind us just yet, we hope to see our local business community continue to thrive so we can continue to enjoy their services, products, food, and drinks long after the pandemic is over.⁠


The official results:

🏆 BEST REALTOR – A huge congratulations to FRED Broker, Stormy Clark, for being voted the BEST REALTOR in Bend!


🏆 BEST REAL ESTATE COMPANY – While we didn’t come in first for this category, as a family-owned independent real estate brokerage homegrown locally in Central Oregon (not a franchised big-box corporation), we are very proud to be this year’s RUNNER UP and after the past year we’ve all had, this year’s Best Of theme of the phoenix – a classic symbol of rebirth, of walking through the fire and re-emerging as a better version – is the perfect badge of honor for small local business owners and companies like ours.


🏆 Check out the full list of winners and runners up here and let’s continue to support our amazing business community, nonprofits, artists, makers, and shops! Congrats to our fellow local business community for rising strong and we applaud your resilience through tough times and beyond! 💚
