Armed with a vision to capitalize on the growth in Bend’s real estate market, Tim and Ryan Buccola have acquired the dynamic, locally-owned real estate brokerage of RE/MAX Key Properties.
“Acquiring the firm is exactly in line with our long-term vision,” says Tim Buccola,
owner/broker of Buccola Group. “Besides increasing broker count and
professional strength, their strong brand equity was a key element to our
decision. Having immediate local and regional name recognition will enable us to
connect more buyers and sellers—and gain momentum for our clients.”
General manager of Key Properties, Kimberly Handley, also sees great
synergies. “We couldn’t be more excited about the market potential, and the
chance to combine efforts to provide the best service any brokerage can offer.
Our agents have a proven record of outstanding service to their clients for years
and with even more tools at our disposal, we’re confident we’ll continue to build
on our reputation as one of the most respected brokerages in Central Oregon.”
The Buccola Group had merged with RE/MAX Key Properties in July. “This provides us with another presence in the marketplace with an Old Mill branch, adds growth for our company in the number of professional brokers we can bring on board and offer an expanded Virtual program for those brokers that don’t want to be “in-house” necessarily,” continues Handley. “It offers additional strength in the marketplace for RE/MAX Key Properties in that it brings more seller and buyer relationships together and added strength in strategic specialties including Commercial, Land Development And New Home Construction. It brings brand awareness to the forefront and expands our service areas outside of the Central Oregon area including Corvallis and the Washington markets.”
With 44 brokers and nine management and support staff, the combined team
now offers two convenient locations in historic downtown Bend and Bend’s Old
Mill District: 431 NW Franklin Avenue and 333 SW Upper Terrace Drive.
