Meg Cummings: Off-The-Grid Real Estate Broker and Interior Design Expert

With over 40 years of interior design experience, most notably with Ethan Allen Global, and over 10 years as a real estate broker, Meg Cummings has always been concerned with how people choose to live in their space rather than just selling a piece of property. This is why she has been a great addition to the CSIR team, as her extensive knowledge in home and design has taken her clients’ interests to the next level, really focusing on the importance of life happening around the living space.

“Because all life happens in and around the home, be sure it is your safe sanctuary!”

When Meg permanently to Central Oregon, she was still traveling extensively with Ethan Allen as a North American Trainer. She quickly realized how much she loved the area and decided to instead focus on a career in real estate because of her love of homes. This allowed her to continue working in the interior design industry, paired with real estate, and enjoy all the benefits of being home and everything Central Oregon has to offer.

After obtaining her real estate license in 2006, it didn’t take long for Meg’s career to take off. Within 3 years she was able to acquire her own real estate company, Lake Chinook Realty, and soon after that she partnered up with CSIR as an associate. Meg’s husband Kent works with her as a broker’s assistant and does all the photography, signage, and is very knowledgeable with solar and generator systems – which has proven to be invaluable with many of her clients.

“We were overwhelmed with the professionalism (so similar to Ethan Allen), the structure, and the level of enthusiasm at CSIR. We have been very pleased and proud to be associated with this company, and we never thought we would find a company that rivaled EA, but we did.”

Meg and Kent currently live in a gated, off-the-grid community, 3 Rivers Rec, which is on the Metolius Arm of Lake Billy Chinook. With over 600 properties, 26 miles of roads (95% paved), a private beach, marina, and many other amenities and resources for residents, the active community utilizes solar, wind, gas, diesel, and propane generators with cell phones and TV/internet service provided by a dish.

Meg loves her lifestyle so much that she specializes in “off-the-grid” properties for her clients. She not only works tirelessly as a real estate broker but also stays very active in the local community. Meg and Kent are Rotary Club members, and she serves as president of the Rotary Club of Jefferson County, helping accomplish humanitarian projects all over the world. They are both active members of the Jefferson County/Madras Chamber of Commerce, assisting in on-going volunteer projects for 3 Rivers throughout the year. Kent also stays busy as a community snow plow driver during the winter. Recently they retired from over 10 years of volunteer service from the Lake Chinook Fire and Rescue Department as EMR’s and Wild Land Fire Fighters, putting in countless hours of training and performing fire department duties.

Here are a few properties that Meg is currently working with; find more on her website and Facebook page.
