Bend, OR – In 2017 Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty hit $1.3 billion in closed sales thanks in part to its robust growth and expansion in farm, ranch and vineyard properties. With growing demand from out-of-state buyers looking to Oregon’s farms, ranches and vineyards for spacious production and recreational properties, Cascade Sotheby’s Farm, Ranch and Vineyard division is booming: the division’s revenue has climbed from $122,165,000 in 2014 to over $200,000,000 in 2018. The average sales price has increased from $2.3 million to over $2.7 million for these working properties throughout Oregon.
Part of that growth and volume comes from the brokerage’s unique expertise in the sales and marketing of acreage properties like farms and ranches. Cascade Sotheby’s elite farm, ranch and vineyard team now has 20 dedicated brokers throughout the state of Oregon. These experienced Brokers have knowledge in agriculture, livestock, soil analysis, hop farming, vineyards, recreational properties, equestrian properties, farm and ranch, fly-fishing, land use, water rights, tax benefits and more.
Many of these Farm, Ranch and Vineyard Brokers at Cascade Sotheby’s have worked as ranchers, farmers, equestrians, and vintners and bring their diverse talents to Cascade Sotheby’s clients looking to buy or sell extraordinary rural properties.
“We are Oregonians; we’ve been raised here on the land, riding horses, hunting and fishing—we have extensive backgrounds in ranching and we understand livestock, farming, septic and irrigation considerations, State and Federal laws, land use and the lifestyle,” says Patty Cordoni, long-time broker with Cascade Sotheby’s and manager of the renowned Farm, Ranch and Vineyard Division. “Cascade Sotheby’s brokers understand what buyers are looking for whether it’s a working ranch in Pendleton, an award-winning vineyard in the Willamette Valley, a recreational property with access to fly fishing, or an equestrian property. Our brokers are setting the standard for knowledge about working properties and what prospective landowners are looking for.”
