As 2018 quickly comes to an end, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the following people and businesses in Bend, Oregon. They have truly made a difference in my life by going above and beyond. As a thank you, I am shouting their names from the rooftops in the hopes that anyone and everyone who needs them, can find them. These referrals are completely unsolicited and genuinely chosen because they are trustworthy, consistently reliable, hardworking and great at what they do!

Here are my favorite businesses in Bend Oregon.

Central Oregon Cleaning Pros

If you are looking for a house cleaning company, Sheena and her crew are wonderful. They are thorough, honest, and worth every penny. I’d officially like to thank them for scrubbing the pots I burn and slaying the dust bunnies in my home.

Goodyear Auto Care

These hard workers do an excellent job at servicing and maintaining our cars. They are knowledgeable, readily available and trustworthy. I thank you for making sure that my cars and my family are safe on the road.

The Phoenix Restaurant

No matter the time or day, this place is consistently consistent. I love their menu, their food, their staff, and their service. It’s nice to know, whether I’m dining with my family or taking clients out for a meal, that I can rely on their quality.

Outland Motors

Bill at Overland Motors is the best! I thank him for our BMW i3, my most favorite car in the world. I also thank the whole team for taking the time to teach me about cars that they don’t even sell and for their honest, sound advice. I know I can always count on their objective opinion because our happiness is more important than their sale.

Deschutes Dermatology

I thank Dr. Carter and her staff for keeping the Gottlieb family melanoma-free. They are thorough, patient, knowledgeable, and have a great bedside manner.

David’s Caretaking

I thank them for reviving our lawn, so our house doesn’t look like it’s in foreclosure. They are reasonable, reliable and conservative in their approach. The team’s fall cleanup was top-notch, and I have no doubt that their spring cleanup will be equally as stellar.

Bend Broadband

I’d like to personally thank Kelsie Bixler and everyone at Bend Broadband for all that they do. I can’t imagine how difficult it is to satisfy the telephone, Internet, and cable needs of Bend. They have done a wonderful job of keeping my business connected and my kids on mute. I thank them for all their hard work and perseverance through the storms. (Figuratively and literally).

Lemon Drop Salon

Jodi Jimenez is incredible at getting rid of those weird gray things that keep growing out of my head. She consistently cuts and colors to perfection and knows exactly what I love. Finding a hair stylist that “gets you” is a beautiful thing!

Riverside Animal Hospital

Dr. Menasco spent over two hours helping me work through the decision of putting my cat to sleep. A truly brutal experience was made easier because of her time, patience, and therapy skills. She is great at what she does!

Red Carpet Auto Cleaning

These guys may be pricey, but they’re worth every penny. I thank them for eternally reviving the new car scent in my 2011 Toyota Sienna. After a long car trip with two teenage boys and a dog, I know I can always count on them to make my car “client worthy.”


I especially want to thank Dr. Mary Rogers at Central Oregon Pediatrics Associates. Her sense of humor and ability to get two teenage boys to talk openly about themselves is incredible. She is kind, compassionate and has done a fantastic job keeping my boys happy and healthy.

Habitat for Humanity ReStore

If you aren’t familiar with the Bend ReStore, you are missing out. Run primarily by volunteers (who are amazing), you can find everything from used furniture to flooring and appliances. This is the first place that I recommend when my clients move here and need anything. The ReStore also helped furnish a home for a client in need, and I can’t thank them enough for their help. A must-visit place!

High Desert Spa Repair

Every time we have issues with our hot tub, this is the only company that I will contact. They have a very knowledgeable and honest staff who will take excellent care of you. They also happen to be reasonable and punctual which is greatly appreciated. I also thank them for being reasonably priced when I know they could charge a lot more!

Eco Carpet Cleaning

You know those cleaning commercials with before and after examples where you wonder who could possibly live in that kind of filth? Well, I promise I don’t live that way, but after the winter, my stairs look pretty darn close. Every spring I dread having to buy new carpet in the house, and my husband tells me to call Eco Carpet. Every year they come, and I am amazed at how new the carpet looks. Yes, I know we should take our shoes off and it’s pretty gross, but that’s not the point of this story. The point is, these guys save my carpet every year!

Bend Relocation Services | Businesses in Bend Oregon

Bend is small enough that you get to know the people behind the business, but it’s big enough to have a choice for different services. These places in Bend have truly made a difference in the way I live here, and that’s what keeps me coming back. In fact, some of my services include getting you set up here, and that means giving you an insider’s tip to my favorite businesses in Bend!
