Living in Central Oregon means being part of a beautiful area that is close to a lot of outdoor activities and an active community with lots of things to do. With Bend being at the heart of the region with recreation, schools, hospitals, and culture, the wonderful neighborhoods and convenience of being located near the mountains, forests, lakes, and high desert makes it an attractive place to live.
The Bend lifestyle is a big part of why Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty broker Haley Overton loves calling Central Oregon home. Some of her favorite activities are backpacking, rock climbing, snowboarding, and trail running, with all of them being very convenient to where she lives.
“There is nothing quite like getting away for a weekend with nothing more than a backpack with my gear. Being connected to nature is what brings so many people to Central Oregon, and I feel so lucky to get to experience all that Bend has to offer.”
Aside from working hard as a real estate broker and spending time in the mountains and forests of Oregon, Haley is also involved with local community programs. Having a passion for helping kids, Haley, along with her dog Wilson, are part of the local Pet Partners team that volunteers with students at Elk Meadow Elementary School’s Dog Tales program. At the beginning of the school year, they are paired up with a student who might need a little extra reading time or just a friend to talk to.
“Each week, Wilson and I visit our student and listen to them read to us. But it’s more than reading: we talk about school, life at home, or what silly thing Wilson did that week. Our students often have difficult home lives and sometimes they really just want to snuggle with Wilson and talk to him. Wilson doesn’t seem to mind the extra belly rubs, ear scratches and treats. I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to impact a young life through such a small act.”
As a real estate broker, Haley has extensive experience with successful negotiations in all types of markets, helping sellers understand pricing and the value of their home, and working with buyers to write offers that are compelling and competitive. She has a determination to ensure the needs of her clients are met on a consistent basis, with a goal to see her clients to a greater knowledge and a life-long real estate partner.
“Buying or selling a home is one of the biggest decisions you can make. Choosing a real estate broker whose communication style, goals, and personality align with yours is paramount to a successful transaction.”
