Keith went above and beyond to help make the purchase of our dream house happen. We were on a time limit to sell our house and purchase a new one. He made everything happen very smooth and within our time limit. Keith is very dedicated to providing exceptional customer service.

Keith Petersen was a wonderful Realtor to work with during our 7 month process to find our dream vacation home. We contacted Keith via phone in August 2012 while we were on our last day of vacation over in Central Oregon. We had stayed at Crosswater for a week and really enjoyed our time there. Keith was gracious enough to squeeze us in last minute as we were getting ready to head back across the mountain to Salem. We were interested in mainly looking at Sunriver homes at first and over the next few weekends of coming over to Sunriver for Saturday or Sunday showings, Keith probably showed us 20 different homes in Sunriver. After not finding what we were looking for, we expanded our showings to Crosswater and Caldera. We came close to purchasing a home in Crosswater but it just didn't feel like a perfect fit for us. We really started to concentrate on Caldera and enjoyed all that they had to offer and the fact that it was a newer development. Keith knew one of the builders, and asked if we could just peak at his own private home so that we could get a feel for the quality. That really sold my husband and I on Caldera Springs and buying a home from that builder. There was a home just being started and we waited out the winter for it to be completed and then came over in early spring to make an offer and purchase. Through out this whole process, what I really enjoyed about working with Keith was his knowledge of everything in Sunriver, Crosswater, Caldera and the surrounding area. He was able to provide us with so much information that really helped us in our final decision. He also has a great personality which made it easy to spend countless hours driving around in his car looking at properties. My husband and I are very social and Keith fit our personalities, which made communication very easy. Keith also quickly returned emails, phone calls, and answered many questions. We are very picky and do not jump in to things quickly and Keith never grew frustrated with us or pushed us at all which is very refreshing coming from a Realtor. All in all it was a fabulous experience to work with Keith and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Central Oregon area!!! Less ... More

Keith Peterson is a testament to patience! We chose Keith because we could see he was well networked. He lives close by so he lives and breathes the local area. This was important because Sunriver and the surrounding area is a different market altogether than Bend. His office was in the heart of Sunriver and his advertising was virtually everywhere. Each time we'd visit Central Oregon from Portland over the 8 years we'd worked with him, he would continue to show us more properties without judgment. We knew we wanted a place to get out of the rain and congestion but couldn't decide which type of property would work best for us. Figuring out the right type of property meant choosing between a Sunriver condo, Sunriver home, rural property on the river with 100 year flood risk and a number of other scenarios. Finding the right one for us was challenging and try as we might, we couldn't pull the trigger. It had to fit us since we knew we'd be there a long long time. Keith was never frustrated or pushy but worked with us through a process of elimination, helping us identify properties we didn't want. He was always patient, professional and helpful. He provided us with the relevant market data that helped us clarify which property would work for us. In the end, we have a cabin on the Deschutes that we got a great price on, is sandwiched between two beautiful homes of much higher value, in a development that will only increase in value. We are excited about finally having a place in Central Oregon and highly recommend Keith Peterson to others who have the same goal. Less ... More

Keith Peterson is the BEST!! His knowledge of the area is fantastic. If anyone has tested Keith's patience it would be us. We have looked and looked, put in offers, changed our minds and requested property viewings at a moments notice. He showed us every kind of property until he had a thorough knowledge of exactly what we were looking for. This went on for over a year until we purchased our home. After 2 years in our beautiful home, we decided it was a bit large for us. We advised Keith that we wanted to sell and within 1 week the house was listed AND sold. We are now looking for another home and Keith is right there to help. Wouldn't use anyone else! Less ... More

Keith is the first person we spoke to about purchasing a second home. He gave us great ideas on financing and guided us through the whole process. He has great knowledge of real estate and knows Bend area intimately. I would recommend Keith on any sale or purchase. He would be my first choice on another home purchase or sale.

Keith has helped us over the last 7 years to purchase and sell multiple properties in Sunriver. He has an excellent knowledge of the market and our needs. He has worked hard to get the properties in our price range. There's no one else I would trust to sell or purchase any properties in central Oregon.

Keith is a top-notch realtor. He gives excellent market advice as a buyer or seller. (And I?ve been on both sides of the table with Keith as my realtor). He goes above and beyond what is typically expected of a real-estate professional. Keith works harder than almost any agent I have ever worked with. He says what he will do and he does what he says. Highly recommended!

I was delighted with the work Keith did for my family and I in finding and securing a home for us in Sunriver. We were not exactly sure of what we wanted but after a couple days looking Keith had a fairly good idea. About a week later Keith called and said he had the perfect home for us. We made the drive to look at the house and he was right. Keith did an excellent job in negotiating the price and the repairs and making sure the transaction proceeded in a smooth and timely manner.

I picked Keith because of his high rating on the Internet as a knowledgeable agent. Keith certainly proved that. He was great all around. Took his time with us and was very detailed. Pointed things out, that we have not noticed. It was really a perfect day. Well...close to perfect. We couldn't find a house, that we liked. But, that was not Keith's fault. Most of the homes we looked at, we found on-line our selfs. I would definitely call Keith, if you would like to deal with a pro. By the way, I am writing this review, sitting on a Maui beach in Hawaii. And, I did not mind toting this review, now and even here, because Keith earned the respect I have for him. Less ... More

All previous reviews express exactly how we feel about our experience with Keith. After contacting him "cold" through an online listing and a few weeks exchanging several emails, Keith set up potential vacation properties for us to view on a weekend visit from Medford ala "house hunters". At the time the market was coming back to life; two of the properties he planned to show went pending in 24hrs. Undaunted, he recommended one particular property and it was the One. He made the process of buying the easiest we have ever experienced and has been there for us since. Our place in River Meadows suits us perfectly and will be enjoyed by generations. We got Keith as a friend as well! Less ... More

On a rainy Saturday in Portland, Keith sent over some listings for my husband and I to review. By noon, we were in our car headed over the pass to meet with Keith and tour properties. Even though we gave him little warning, he was prepped and ready to go...we spent a day and a half looking at homes before we settled on our 'gem'. Keith's knowledge of the area, including Three Rivers, helped us understand what property would best suit our needs. And because we were out of town buyers, we relied heavily on Keith for answers to our many questions. Keith and his team were there every step of the way, making the entire process seamless. Keith is professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with. Highly recommended. Less ... More

Keith has been outstanding to work with. He is exceptionally knowledgeable of the local market. Has always made himself very accessible to me regardless of how big or small the issue. He made the home buying process go as smoothly as possible (considering it was a short sale). He is persistent and tenacious when he needs to be. Always follows through on what he says he is going to do. If I could give him six stars on all the ratings I would!

Great experience working with Keith! He is agressive at getting views on our home, found buyers in a really tough market and helped us negotiate a fair sell price. He also coordinated all the work that needed to occur on the home after the inspection since we live out of state. We've worked with 7 different realtors in various buy/sell situations and Keith is at the top!

Keith Petersen gets my highest recommendation. He helped me through a difficult short sale and went to bat for me when I had to leave my home and move to Portland. He checked on my home and helped me sell my home before it was foreclosed. Keith knows the local market and works really hard to negotiate a good deal and positive outcome whether you are the buyer or the seller.

We used Keith to sell a rental property in Sunriver. He was very professional throughout the entire process. He provided local insight on rental home pricing which allowed us to identify a price range we were comfortable with and we had offers within that range within two weeks. We successfully closed a deal within two months of listing the property, helped in large part by Keith's stewardship of the entitre process. He kept us up to date on transaction status and was always responsive if we called or e-mailed. We have recommended Keith to some close friends of ours that are considering selling their rental house. Less ... More

Keith Petersen is the consumate real estate professional. We stumbled on to one of his listings for a lark and ended up making an offer on the house 6 hours later. Keith guided us through the home buying process every step of the way by answering all our questions, providing every service you can imagine and being on call 24/7 for us. His customer service is outstanding. Keith is very knowledgeable about the area and what is available. When we mentioned a couple of houses we had viewed on our own, he knew every minute detail about the property. We still rely on him for references for professionals to help us with the remodeling and updating of the property we purchased. Not only would we highly recommend Keith to others, we already have recommended him with glowing praise. Keith made the entire process seamless. I'm still amazed how easy it was. We've bought and sold several other homes and properties and no one has matched Keith's expertise and professionalism. Less ... More

Looking to buy or sell a home in Central Oregon? Keith Petersen is the realtor to call! This Fall we purchased a home in Sunriver and on the recommendation of a friend we contacted Keith. He quickly assisted us identify our priorities and helped us locate the perfect home. Keith is extremely knowledgeable about the properties in the area and his follow through was most impressive. During the entire process he was very professional, diligent, responsive and patient. He attended to every detail during the closing, which helped us tremendously as we live in the Portland area, and his service hasn?t stopped now that the sale is complete. He is always available to connect us to local resources and will show up to assist with a minutes? notice. Keith went beyond our expectations of a ?realtor? and we give him the highest ratings in all categories! Less ... More

It took a very long time to locate a property that was both in our price range, and matched our needs. That was partly because our plans sort of "evolved" as we learned more about the area. Keith was very low-pressure, but over many months he kept sending us likely properties. Finally, when we found the "right one" he really went into action to ensure that all went our way with the closing, and that was not straight forward by any means. We appreciated his knowledge of the area and his tenacity in getting this deal closed for us. We love our cabin!! Less ... More

Keith was relentless in fullfilling the banks' endless requests for forms,information. Several times, I was on the verge of giving up but he forged forward till we closed. He also understook, regardless of how difficult the process was, that this was the house I wanted. He understood the Bend market and was very helpful in locating what I was interested in.

He made the experience quick, easy, and most of all - successful. We are SO impressed with his knowledge of the area, trends, and the people involved. Keith didn't leave us when it was over. He to this day jumps when we call to "fix" whatever the question is, whether it be referals to agencies, where to find something, who to talk to. One day we were trying to move a large piece of furniture and decided to hire it done so I called Keith for a referal. Instead he came right over bringing a couple of "strong arms" and they did the deed in a hurry. Can't say enough - if you want what you want when you want it - call Keith Peterson. Less ... More

Keith Petersen represented us on 2 separate occasions -- one being the successful sale of our rental house during a short sale, and the other in selling our primary residence, both of which occured during very difficult real estate selling environments. Always very responsive and extremely capable, I would choose only Keith for all my real estate needs.

We have worked with Keith on buying 2 homes and are in the process of selling one. Throughout our experiences we never felt pressured or that we were wasting his time. We took a long time before purchasing our second home and he was always attentive to our needs. We highly recommend him!
