My husband and I looked unsuccessfully for a rental in Bend for 2 months. We were moving from Vermont to Bend with 2 large dogs. From our first conversation with Melissa, we felt comfortable. She took the time to get to know us, and listened carefully to who we were and to what was important to us. Melissa is friendly and outgoing. She was our advocate throughout the entire process and followed up on any and all concerns, even after we moved into our rental. We so appreciated Melissa’s hard work and diligence in getting the job done and will always be grateful to her. She is quite an awesome person, compassionate and kind, with a great sense of humor.
