I Love Central Oregon! This beautiful area has been my home since moving here from Maryland 24 years ago. I Know Central Oregon, I've lived in Bend, Tumalo, Redmond, and Sunriver area although I am most knowledgeable about Bend. Buying or selling a home can be an overwhelming task and I will put forth the extra time and energy to understand and meet your individual needs and make the entire process an easy one. My management and marketing background have given me superb communication and negotiation skills which means that you'll get the best price whether you are buying or selling real estate. I am proud to be a GREEN Realtor and received my GREEN Designation from the National Association of Realtors and believe in promoting Green building practices and also my GRI (Graduate of Real Estate Designation) which took 1 year to complete & over 90 hours of classroom time and testing. My goal is to build a foundation of trust with all my clients through my personal and professional commitment to high standards, honesty and ethics. I love to recreate in Central Oregon with my husband, Amory Cheney, and my two West Highland Terriers, Hannah and Cassie. I race my mountain & cyclocross bikes for Boneyard Cycling and also enjoy hiking, skiing, kayaking, riding my motorcycle and yoga. I am a member of OBRA (Oregon Bike Racing Association and Meisner Nordic Club. I presently volunteer for Cascade Cycling Classic, MBSEF (Mount Bachelor Ski Education Foundation), PET (Pet Evacuation Team) and in the past I've also had the pleasure of volunteering for Healing Reins and Meals on Wheels. As a former Visitor Center Manager, I thrive on staying current on weekly activities and events. Feel free to ask me where to play or stay in Central Oregon while you are visiting or considering your move here. I would enjoy speaking with you today so you, too, can have the Central Oregon Lifestyle we've all come to know and love. "Ask me how you can live where you play and play where you work". Warmest regards, Kathy Hovermale, Principal Broker, Broker, Realtor, GREEN,GRI.
