Hear what people have to say about Otis Craig and their Bend real estate transactions:
I couldn’t have found my house or dealt with all the details of purchasing a home without Otis’ help and guidance. From start to finish, he figured out what I was looking for, did the research to locate the perfect home, and walked me through the negotiations that led to my closing. His level of professionalism is unparalleled, and he knows the Central Oregon real estate market better than anyone I have ever met. As far as I’m concerned, there is no one else to work with if someone wants to buy a house in Bend.George Corcores
I have known and worked with Otis Craig for many years on real estate transactions here in Central Oregon. In my capacity as a mortgage lender, it is critical that I have Realtor partners that I can trust and rely upon when working with my borrowers. Without hesitation, I will continue to refer my clients to Otis, as he is a true professional in his line of work and I know my clients are well served when working with him.
Specifically, Otis has great knowledge of his marketplace, is a strong communicator and negotiator, excellent problem solver, and an all around good guy. I have heard nothing but praise and thanks when my clients tell me about their experiences with Otis, so he will always be a member of my extended “team.”Rob Moore
During my time as Executive Director for Bend Area Habitat for Humanity Otis was instrumental in advancing the mission of our organization. He worked on numerous transactions including the sale of property, acquisition of residential lots, and the purchase of commercial property for the relocation of the ReStore. Otis’ ability to navigate the complexities of affordable housing is a testament to his skill and diligence as a realtor.Mark Quinlan
Thanks Otis …you helped us find just the right home in Bend! Moving from small town Hood River to Bend we weren’t familiar with all the different areas of Bend, each with their own quirks and attributes. You guided us to just the right neighborhoods for our lifestyle, even though I insisted on looking at “everything out there”! Once we found the best location and home for us negotiations had to be made. Otis handled all the unknowns and made us feel we were in capable hands. He ran interference with the selling realtor, developer, mortgage broker, and title company, all while advocating for our best interests. We love our new home and Otis made it happen. Again, thanks Otis!Andrew and Carolyn Deenik (and Scooter)
Otis and I met on a white water kayaking trip on the middle fork of the Salmon River. I knew when it came time to choose a broker that Otis could offer a unique perspective on the type of property that would reflect my active lifestyle and my love for the Bend area. Otis can only be described as the most patient and accommodating broker on earth. He showed me dozens of properties, keeping my desire to be close to Bend while having more space for my growing animal family top of mind, as I pivoted repeatedly between buying a home or building from scratch.
When I finally found my dream plot of land, Otis spent countless hours educating me on local water right legalities and land usage codes to ensure the property would deliver against my vision. Having bought and sold properties around the globe, I can say that Otis is without a doubt the most versatile and knowledgeable broker with which I’ve had the pleasure of working.Kristin Luck
When we first started working with Otis we were new home buyers with little experience. Otis took the time to get to know our needs and wants. His knowledge of the Bend market combined with his experience in home construction helped us to purchase a first home that not only exceeded needs, but fit our budget and dreams.
A few years later when our expanded family needed a new place Otis was there again to help us through the selling process. He was respectful, insightful and presented our home in ways that helped it move quickly. Otis’ calm demeanor made selling our first home as stress free as possible, while his patience in taking us through dozens of homes at times that fit our schedules was instrumental in our family finding our new “dream” spot.
Our family can not recommend Otis Craig enough whether buying or selling a home.Aaron and Amy Tarnow
