Thank you so much for selling my Redmond property. You helped me from beginning to end and I appreciated everything you did for me. I would highly recommend you as a great Realtor as well as being a very nice trustworthy person.

Thank you Mark for spending so much time with us today. Your gift and taking us to lunch was very thoughtful and we appreciate your generosity. We both felt very confident in your expertise, keeping us on track, and getting us the information we needed quickly. You made it a very low stress event. We will most certainly recommend you to anyone we know of that is looking for a top notch Realtor. Should we find ourselves needing a Realtor in the future, we know who we can rely on with confidence.

We could not be happier with the professionalism, knowledge and experience that we received in selling our property with Mark. The home was presented in its best light on paper, in listings and through the negotiations process. Mark was courteous and forthright with pricing the home for an easy sale and prompt in getting the home shown. He was also fun to work with through it all and even after the sale was completed.  I would highly recommend working with Mark to friends and family, and already have done so.
 
Warmly,

It took my wife and I four years but we finally purchased a house in Redmond, OR. I was initially attracted to Central Oregon Living because of Mark Riegers website. The site has sufficient filters so that you can focus on things that are really important. In our case it was a single level, 3 car garage, and around 2400-2600 sq ft.  It took several visits over several years but we finally identified a house. Mark was instrumental in helping us make an offer that we thought would be followed by a counteroffer that was in our price range and appropriate for the house we wanted. Mark also guided us through having the house inspected and sifting through the deficiencies that we really wanted corrected, while ignoring the ones that were incidental. We closed on the Redmond house on the same day as the house we moved from and that was no easy chore and Mark helped make that happen by coordinating things with the selling agent and owner as well as with the escrow company. Mark truly represented us and our interests well and we recommend him highly as a Realtor and nice person.

I think the service provided by you was excellent.  You gave us the listings we asked for, you showed us the desired properties in an timely and efficient manner, there was no pushiness from a sales stand point, you were available to write the offer and followed up on everything and walked us through the closing and final house walk-through.  This purchase to me was very smooth and professional and you gave very good sound advice.
 
I would highly recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Bend area.
 
Thank you for the great service.

Just wanted to say Thank You for everything you did for our family. You were absolutely Johnny on the spot and there for us every step of the way. Although we have no intentions of buying another home anytime soon, we would recommend you to everyone that is looking to buy. Thank you.

We found Mark Rieger’s web-site in March of 2010. We spoke to Mark multiple times over the phone, giving him various information regarding our Real Estate needs. Even though we had not relocated to Central Oregon yet, Mark immediately started sending us listings as they became available. We appreciated his diligence, while still respecting our privacy by not constantly pestering us.

We moved to Redmond in June of 2010. We promptly made contact with Mark upon our arrival. We had Real Estate in another town that we preferred to sell before purchasing here. Mark was very patient with us and remained in contact, but again without harassing us, or pushing us into something we were not ready for.

When our house finally sold, Mark looked at a countless number of houses with us until we found just the right one (which was over a year after our initial contact with him). During our actual purchase, he was superior in his professionalism and knowledge. We commented several times that "we were glad he was on our side." A funny thing happened during our year with Mark, we not only had ourselves an outstanding Real Estate Agent, but we also made a great friend.

Since 1960, Cathy and I have purchased and sold over 150 properties, using a Realtor to represent us in nearly every sale or purchase. Recently Mark Rieger represented us in two separate transactions: the sale of my mother's home and the purchase of a second home in Bend. The assistance provided by Mark far surpassed the quality of service that we have received from the vast majority of other Realtors with whom we have dealt over the years.

We highly recommend him to represent either the selling or purchase of any properties. You will not be disappointed if you select Mark as your representative.

Mark

Thank you for all your hard work and dedication in purchasing our first home. From the start we were amazed by your extensive knowledge and professionalism. We were so proud to call you our Realtor. You made the drawn out short sale process bearable and understandable. Thank you for always being patient and understanding with our questions. You were like a caring father who wanted the best for us and did everything in your power to make it happen. We have been and will continue highly recommending you to everyone we know in Central Oregon! Again, thank you for all you have done for us.

My wife and I had a dream of retiring and moving to Redmond in Central Oregon from North western New Mexico. WE contacted MARK Rieger after talking with The Redmond Chamber of Commerce, and could not have made a better choice for our Realtor. It took 2 trips up from New Mexico to Redmond over a 6 month period, and at times it didn't seem like it was going to happen, but Mark stuck with us through all the ups and downs and helped us make our dream come true. We finally made it to our new home in Redmond on the evening of December 20th 2010 after driving 3 days in a winter storm that stretched all the way from New Mexico through Oregon. When we got to our new home Mark was there shoveling what must have been 14 inch's of snow out of the drive and walk, he welcomed us to Redmond gave us the keys to our new home and went in with us to make sure everything was good to go. We have come to consider Mark and his wife Toni Friends as well as our realtors. 

You Could Not Do Better Than Choosing Mark Rieger For Your Real-Estate Needs.
 
Thanks Mark

While building in Central OR I was fortunate enough to have had Mark Rieger to work with on the marketing and selling of my homes. From listing to closing Mark kept me informed, made sure everything was taken care of correctly and on time.

I never had to worry with Mark with his years of experience, his professionalism and excellent customer relationship for all involved was excellent.

Here's a short summary about our dealings with Mark Rieger. Mark handled the sale of our home in The Greens in Redmond, at the same time helping us purchase a new home in Angus Acres in Terrebonne, Or. He is very observant on a lot of things we didn't even think of and helped us get little things upgraded that we didn't even consider. We would recommend Mark to anyone.

Robert and Sally Olson 

 

In Spring of 2010 we decided to move back to Oregon from Missouri. Our friends Bob and Sally referred us to Mark Rieger. We didn't realize at the time what a favor they were doing for us. We contacted Mark first by email, told him what we were looking for and what funds we had to work with. He immediately started sending us available listings in our price range and areas we were interested in. If we needed more information, Mark was quick to provide it. After selling our home in Missouri and arriving in Oregon we met with Mark and his wife Toni in person. They were great to work with and made the process easy, both were friendly and professional. Mark will have your best interest in mind through the whole process. We give him our highest recommendation!

To Whom it May Concern

Please allow me to take this opportunity to discuss what a fine job Mark Rieger has done in the past in marketing my properties.

He was the listing agent for a complex where I purchased four homes. Over time, I decided to sell them off. I hired Mark for the job of marketing my properties for several reasons:

* Mark knew the product very well.

* He lived in the development for several years, and sat on the board of directors. He also helped design and modify plans and made numerous helpful suggestions.

* Mark stayed in touch through the years with newsletters, helpful hints, mailers, etc.

Mark did an excellent job in handling all the details of what I wanted done: sell the home, take care of the problems, and stay in touch as needed.

Were I to sell additional property, I would certainly call on Mark and place the listing with him. I am happy to recommend Mark to my friends and acquaintances for their real estate needs.

Sincerely,

William C. McCormick

 

After getting to know Mark Rieger at our kid's school events we called on his advice about selling our house so we could buy the next house we had our eye on. From the very beginning we knew Mark would take good care of us.

His suggestions and ideas about preparing our home for sale made all the difference. With his help we sold our house in eleven days for the price we wanted. He was a savior at negotiating on the house we wanted to purchase once again getting us the best price.

He helped us find financing and all the contacts we needed for making these confusing transactions simple. He helped us coordinate between the buyers of our house and the sellers of the house we bought so that our move was smooth.

Now, in addition to a friend, we have a professional and dependable Realtor that we trust and have recommended to family and friends. Now they too have gained from his experience and knowledge.

Mark and Gilda Hillison

 

My sincere gratitude to you in the marketing of my property. I still can't believe it only took 17 days. Your help with suggestions on property beautification, your assistance in closing and your extra help with Ray loading the washer and dryer in the horse trailor was truly above and beyond. You have a great team and I certainly appreciate your professionalism and excellent assistance.

Dear Mark,

Words cannot express how grateful we are to you for helping us find just the right home. You maintained contact almost daily and were never to busy to explain every step of the process to us. Thank you so much for everything.

You worked very hard to make the entire process of buying a new home and selling our old one easy on me. Your years of experience and personal attention were second to none. I will not hesitate to use your services again and strongly endorse your services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
