We have had TWO very pleasant, very successful, experiences working with Becky and Nan. Our first experience was when we approached them to sell our home in The Dalles. From the very beginning they made us feel totally comfortable and outlined their strategy for getting our home sold at a price we were not only comfortable with but excited about. It was very important to us that this whole process be well managed and as painless as possible. Happy to say they were very successful in delivering on the expectations they had set forthit truly was a painless process for us from list to successful-close. Less than two years later we determined we needed to find another home in the area, we didnt hesitate for a single second in calling upon them to help us find it. We again experienced the same superior level of customer service. Becky and Nan not only found us the home that met our difficult list of needs, they made sure we got it too! Their professionalism is very high, they are extremely pleasant to work with and their knowledge of the regional market makes Columbia Gorge Real Estate our #1 recommendation to anyone looking to sell or buy. It is with full confidence we can say, these ladies get results!

When we set out to buy our first home, we hoped to find some land and build. I happened to see a Columbia Gorge Real Estate sign on a nice plot of land and called the number listed. Having had a previous negative experience with another realtor, I was a little gun-shy and distrusting of the whole home building/buying process in general. One chance call with Becky Schertenleib changed that. We exchanged emails and a couple more phone calls that day and then connected to look at a few houses she thought might be a good fit for our family. We had decided that it wasnt the right time to build, but it was the right time for us to buy. Meeting Becky in person was exactly what I expected after spending time on the phone with her. She was professional, gracious, and listened to everything I said. When she asked what we liked or didnt like about a house, it was because she truly wanted to know. There was no pressure to like or dislike anything. She cared about what worked for our family that was her motivation, and I trusted her. The first house was just not the right fit for us, then we went up the street to the second house she thought might meet our needs. We walked in the front door and that was it.we were home. Everything felt right. I must have told her 50 times, I love this house. With her easy smile that I would come to appreciate more and more in the coming weeks, she suggested we look at the other house any way just to know what was out there. We did, but house #2 was the one for us. And so the process began , we made an offer the next morning.
As first time homebuyers, we had a lot to learn. Becky took all the time we needed to explain every step. She offered gentle guidance and realistic expectations. Our journey to closing was not without some bumps in the road. There were definitely some days of discouragement and long waiting. But Becky was always there, waiting with us. It was a couple steps forward, one step back, even on days I wanted to scream, Becky was always calm and reassuring. I knew even if nothing went as expected, she had a plan B. Somehow she balanced it all with effective assertiveness when needed to get things moving. When Becky made a phone call, stuff got done. She is extremely knowledgeable - with instincts we relied on throughout our process.
With a million things happening in her day, she always took time for me. If I hadnt seen for myself how busy she was from sun up to sun down, I would have thought I was her only client. I dont know how she does it in the heat of the moment, she maintains her quiet calm. Straightforward, but gracious, encouraging but always realistic, all wrapped up with a great sense of humor Becky exudes integrity and professionalism on every level. I trusted her when our process began; I trust her still. She will always be part of our familys story.
Becky and Nan just care about people!.not because they have to, but because thats who they are. I could not possibly recommend anyone more highly.
Thanks, Becky, for helping us find our way home

I highly recommend working with Nan and Becky at Columbia Gorge Real Estate. My entire experience was great and one that I would not change. With so many uncertainties going into the home buying experience, it was nice to know that I had someone in my corner that was very knowledgeable of all the laws, requirements, current market, etc.
In addition to being so knowledgeable, Nan and Becky are kind, respectful and genuinely care about helping their clients find their perfect home. There was no pressure to stretch my budget, I was informed about both the pros and cons for each home that I looked at, and everything was explained in a way that I could easily understand.
Even though they had numerous clients, I was treated as if I were the only one. I received quick responses to all of my questions and never felt as if I was an inconvenience. Something that was amazing to me was that Nan even contacted several companies to get quotes so that I would have options for any repairs or updates after I closed the home. It was great to know that she was looking out for me even after I purchased my home.
I also really appreciated that Nan was able to work with the seller??s agent, lender, title company, etc. to help make my experience so easy. Having confidence in her negotiation skills, real estate knowledge, and positive reputation in the community allowed me to leave everything in her hands-which was such a relief!
As I said, I would highly recommend choosing Columbia Gorge Real Estate when you decide to buy or sell a home. Nan and Becky were wonderful and made it an enjoyable experience!

My husband and I are both realtors from California and were very picky about who we chose to represent us in the purchase of a home in the Dalles. We set a high standard on what we wanted and expected from the professional that we chose. We chose Becky as our Realtor and were thrilled with our choice.
Becky was knowledgable of the area and comparable prices, extremely professional, paid attention to every detail, and really went the "extra mile" so many times on our behalf. Becky made the home buying process what it should be for a Buyer--enjoyable and stress-free. She is an honest, down-to-earth reliable person who we plan to gladly recommend to our family, friends or business associates who are thinking of moving to the Dalles!

Becky and Nan,

On behalf of my mother, Dora, and myself; we want to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help in the sale of Mom??s home at 1831 East 14th Street, in The Dalles. My mother has Alzheimer??s and was not always aware of all the services you provided, but more than once commented on how nice, pleasant, and helpful you were in the sale of her home. Your understanding and patience with my mother during the sale of her home was exceptional and it was extremely comforting to me that I knew that both of you were there for her,

I also want to personally express my gratitude for all the help and assistance you provided me. With my Mom living in Oregon and me in Arizona, the sale of her home could not have been completed without the excellent customer service provided by you and Columbia Gorge Real Estate. You constantly kept me informed on all issues and were never too busy to answer my concerns, no matter how many times I called. Your expertise in the The Dalles Oregon market also provided us with a contact for an estate sale. This final hurdle enabled us to bring closure to our part of moving Mom to Arizona. Even after we returned to Arizona, you still remained vigilant in your efforts to keep us apprised of any final closing details.

Again, thank you for everything. I t was a pleasure to get to know you and your company.

Sincerely,

Mary Liebertz

Nan & Becky were such a breath of fresh air to work with! They diligently marketed our house while we were 2000+ miles away on the opposite coast. Nan and Becky went above and beyond time and time again! They were always reachable by phone or email & happy to take our calls too. I would MOST definitely recommend their services to buyers, sellers or anyone thinking about investing in Real Estate. Thanks SO much Nan & Becky!!!!

I stopped by the office Sunday afternoon and they were open! They were very helpful with getting me information on rentals (although they didn't handle any they provided me with a great list of where to look). I will be sure to use them when i purchase a home this fall.
