My Story

Colleen Dillingham, Bend Premier Real EstateHaving grown up in Kansas, we were looking for a place that offered an abundance of recreational opportunities in a place with a small town feel along with Midwest friendliness. We've never regretted our decision back in 1987, but instead have been actively involved along with my family in hiking, camping, kayaking, fishing, golfing, and boating. I now consider us to be long-term "Bendites," and it's easy to share my love and enthusiasm for our fabulous community.

I have had a lifelong enjoyment of working with people , many of those years as an R.N.   I now take this work ethic and love of helping people to assisting you with your real estate goals. My past work experiences and people skills enable me to be diligent in providing great service, smooth transactions and staying calm in stressful situations. Your happiness and satisfaction are always my top priority.

My past schooling and experience in home staging and redesign can be a huge service to you whether you are buying or selling. As a buyer, I can help you envision and imagine if and how a home will fit you and your lifestyle.   As a seller, I can aid you in setting the stage in making that all important “first impression”. Many people don’t know where to begin to make their house shine , by using the right colors, furniture placement and knowing what to edit and declutter. I can help you do this and make your home warm and inviting. Presentation is key to eliciting top dollar and a quicker sale.

I have been a member of the Bend Athletic Club since it opened and have volunteered in public and private schools here in Bend. I am a self - professed tennis junkie for many years and love summertime activities including hiking, kayaking, and being at the many beautiful lakes. I also love to entertain, decorate, read, travel, enjoy music and celebrating Christmas and St. Patrick’s Day.

It would be a great pleasure to work for you . I want nothing but a positive experience and outcome for you. Please call me for friendly and professional service!
