It means so much when my home seller and home buyer clients share their appreciative comments on the service I provide.
So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. I hope they indicate my experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs.
"Tarris is tremendously knowledgeable about the Sunriver, OR marketplace and the overall home purchase process. Tarris was very patient over a six month process, and ultimately helped us find the perfect home based on our criteria, and through his advice and skill helped us acquire it at a good value. It was extremely comforting throughout the process to lean on Tarris' expertise, but we were even more impressed with his caring approach and incredible service level and willingness to assist with all of the little details like inspections/repairs, getting service providers in place, the closing process, etc. We highly recommend Tarris."
"Bought and sold eight homes and dealt with many realtor's- Quite simply you are the best- combining impeccable professionalism with a friendly and engaging personality. I would be delighted to serve as a reference for you."
We were out of town buyers (buying a short sale) and needed an agent that posessed a ton of local knowledge, was an excellent communicator, thorough and responsive. We found all this and more in Tarris. We had actually went through three agents prior to finding Tarris and he was like a breath of fresh air! He toured us around Bend while showing us homes and he had answers to all our questions about the Bend area, recreation, services, restaurants, etc. He was absolutely amazing!! He never acted like we were bothering him or that he was too busy for us (which we found with other agents). We worked with him over a 5 month period and he always treated us as though our purchase was important and that we were important. He truly worked on our behalf to make sure we got what we wanted and that we were happy. It is apparent he is extremely experienced and he is incredibly knowledgeable of the Bend area. He was organized, detail oriented, and very responsive during the entire 5 month period. I would never hesitate to use Tarris as an agent again and/or recommend him to anyone else looking for a fabulous real estate agent!

"Tarris was an unexpected goldmine of a find. With his assistance, we made a long-distance purchase of a vacation home in Sunriver, that was without question the easiest, most problem-free real estate transaction we have ever been involved in. The establishment of a website that we could log into to view properties; the personal videotaping of our short-list selections to give us a more realistic sense of properties than what is discernable from multiple listings; the immediate call-backs in response to our multiple questions; the marathon home viewing sessions; culminating in (from our view-point) an effortless negotiation (as it turns out it wasn't so effortless for Tarris, but he was professional all the way). For all these reason and so many more, we recommend Tarris without hesitation. I can't imagine expecting anything more from a realtor, but if you can, ask Tarris, and surely he will deliver."
Rand & Ami Thomas
"You are an amazing Central Oregon Realtor! It was truly a pleasure working with you for our Sunriver vacation home purchase. You really helped us make an all-around great vacation home purchase- from informing us of the Sunriver market conditions, to helping us find just the right home and every detail in-between! My husband and I sincerely appreciated the prompt responses and attention to detail you gave throughout our entire process. We will absolutely work with you again for future home purchases and gladly recommend you to friends and family.
Jeff & Katie MacDonald
"Tarris was exceptional in all areas of real estate, and he easily guided me through the whole process of relocating from CA. He consistently went above and beyond, even providing information outside the norm for a house purchase. He was extremely pleasant to work with and always had a positive attitude. I would readily recommend him to anyone, and if I could talk my family into moving to Bend, he would absolutely be the Realtor I would recommend!"
“After deciding to pursue a home in Sunriver we searched the internet for an agent to help us in the process. You responded promptly to our call and followed up in a timely fashion providing a great deal of information. You were accommodating in scheduling a weekend with us and arrived with a well-formulated plan for visiting houses. You clearly listened to our wants and needs and we toured houses and condos meeting those desires.
After deciding upon a purchase you assisted in the offer process, helped us through the counter-offer, and coached us with regard to issues arising in the inspection stage. Your help didn’t stop at the sale; you managed items in our absence including meeting with the sellers and addressing issues after the sellers vacated the residence.
Tarris, we could not have imagined the high level of service you provided. You were a partner and a coach; you quickly gained our trust and you made us feel comfortable throughout the home purchase process. With a great deal of respect we ask you to use us as a reference any time possible; we hope to have the opportunity to work with you again and we will gladly refer family and friends.”
Bob & Margaret McMillan
"From the moment we listed our home with you, my stress level dropped. The fact that you handled all interactions with the lender in negotiating our sale helped so much. I would go so far as to say you helped me prevent a heart attack! We also appreciated the way you constantly kept us updated about what was happening. Randy and I both felt that you truly represented us. We believe you went over and above the "call of duty" in promoting our property, explaining the procedure to us as it unfolded, and in bringing our offer through to a close! We appreciate you so much, and we thank God for you."
Randy & Lisa Stutzman
"Thank you for all your help, expertise and patience! We appreciated your diligent followups, even with our difficult schedules and being from out of state. You made our purchasing experience a success and a true pleasure. It really is wonderful to work with a professional who is so dedicated to his clients needs."
Duane and Sharon Muller
"What we appreciated was that you were happy to give us information yet you did not bombard us with pressure, which we respected greatly. You were more than accommodating. You had high energy, were enthusiastic and very personable. You showed us the homes that had the features we wanted. We walked away feeling that we could trust you and that you sincerely cared. You made each step in the process so much easier for us. You wrote up the proposal asking for the upgrades and for some things that we had not even thought of or considered. Once our proposal was accepted you went above and beyond in so many ways. We had so many questions and not once did you make us feel we were being a nuisance. You explained each step and were with us every step of the way.
Even though buying a house is a business transaction, it is also very personal and emotional. Being an out-of-town buyer we could have been much more vulnerable to deceptive motives on the part of a Realtor. That is what separates you from other Realtors. We felt that you were involved, that you cared and wanted the best for us. We never felt taken advantage of or worried about that at all. Being an out-of-town buyer, we really had to rely on you for so many things and really put all our trust in your hands. Yo went above and beyond by keeping us informed on a weekly basis, sometimes daily of the progress they were making on our home. You took time out of your day to visit the home site and take pictures for us at different stages of the build. You showed excitement along the way which made us feel excited. You were present for the final inspection with Steve and you also were with us during our walk-through on our move in day. You came over about a week later to see how things were going and I felt that not only were you our Realtor, but that in the process you had become a friend.
Would we recommend you services to someone looking to buy or sell a home? You bet ya! Working with you from start to finish was such a positive experience. Thank you for helping us make our dream of moving to Bend a reality."
Cathy & Harry Bradfield
We contacted Tarris Rogers to advise and assist in selling our share in a Townhome we owned in Sunriver, OR. We found him interested, efficient, on track, knowledgeable, and willing to go the extra mile. He reported to us on a regular basis and we were kept abreast of the changing market in our area and made aware of recent sales and offers. Additionally, he utilized the latest technology to post photos and comments on the internet, increasing the marketing reach.
In a difficult economic environment, our sale was closed in two months. Tarris continued to advise us through the closing of our sale. We highly recommend Tarris Rogers for anyone wanting to sell property in the Deschutes County area.
