“A couple of years ago my wife passed away and I made a decision to move from Bend, OR back to my roots in San Diego. I called a local broker whom I knew had a stellar reputation (Jim Coon). I told him of my plans and he said that he would get right on it. Boy, did he ever. Within a couple of days he produced an exceptional video presentation of my beloved home and posted it on the web. He helped me price my home appropriately, and within ten days I had a fair CASH offer with a ten day escrow. The buyers pounced on my house in large part based on the video. My only complaint was that I had to move so quickly. Jim and Gloria Coon are the absolute best, and I consider them to be true friends.”

“It’s without hesitancy that I gladly provide a testimonial to the good work of Jim and Gloria Coon. I am a out-of-town buyer which brings with it an even greater anxiety in home buying. From the get-go, Jim made me feel like I had a partner in this search. Both via email and beside me going house to house, he worked tirelessly to find the house I was looking for. It was an arduous task, especially as I had a time limitation, but all was made easier by Jim’s sense of humor, patience, and insights. Not for one millisecond did I ever feel that there was any other goal than what *I* wanted. Once I found the house, then Gloria stepped in and did her magic with the paperwork and legalities, helping with each step along the way. If you’ve ever bought a house, you know how painful it can be. Jim and Gloria made me feel like I had a dedicated team on my side, making the whole process as easy as possible.

Would I recommend them? I believe you’d be hard pressed to find a team that will do more for you. These folks are pros!”

“Over the past 2 years we have had the pleasure of working with Jim and Gloria Coon. They assisted us with the sale and purchase of our personal residences, our son and daughter-in-law’s purchase of their first residence, and sale of my parent’s home. Their professional standards are exceptional, complimented by many years of experience in the Bend market. Their strengths include integrity, common sense, fairness, and transparency in dealing with buyers and sellers, professional videography which is so important in selling to the online market, availability and promptness in communication and completion of each step of transactions, along with just being great people who are so fun to work with. They love their work and appreciate its importance to their clients. We highly recommend them and without question will utilize their firm for future transactions.”

“We have known Jim and Gloria Coon for close to 10 years. When we first came to live in Oregon we chose a neighborhood to live in and found Jim and Gloria lived across the street from us. What started as a neighborly acquaintance grew into a friendship where we shared a snow blower, trusted them with a key to our house and spent many an evening over dinners at our house or theirs and sharing many conversations about life and our families.  Although we are retired we learned of their real estate business and came to appreciate their knowledge, insight to the market, and rigorous honesty. Over time we made the decision to purchase a lot in Shevlin Commons in Bend and a build home. We asked Jim and Gloria to represent us in our purchase which they did. They counseled us as to lot location, negotiations and purchase price. Once the lot was purchased we began the process of building our new home. As time drew near to consider the sale of the home we were living in at the time we again employed Jim and Gloria to represent us in the sale of the home. As is there stock in trade they helped us understand the market at the time (recession with many foreclosures on the market), the issues that might be encountered in the sale of the property in the midst of a recession and how to appropriately price the house in such a market in order to attract a buyer. They marketed the home with a professional array of photographs and video. We were fortunate to sell the home when many homes around us languished and did not sell. We would highly recommend Jim and Gloria to help in the purchase and/or sale of any property you might be considering in the future. You will find them to be excellent at understanding current market trends, always honest in advising you of what you should pay for a property and/or the sale price of a property and finally the proper marketing techniques to employ. Couple this with their warm, engaging style and you will find you have employed the consummate professionals. You cannot go wrong in employing Jim and Gloria Coon as your real estate professionals.”

 “In a few words – Jim and Gloria, your service is unparalleled. You provided us, not only with a wonderful home, but you made it an effortless and enjoyable experience for us.

As you know, looking for and buying a home is a daunting process. After a false start on our own, we were pointed in your direction by multiple locals. They told us: “You have to go see Jim and Gloria Coon at Alleda Real Estate; they are amazing”. And so you are! When we walked into your office, we were frankly discouraged with our home search to date. After just a short conversation with you, our hopes were renewed. You made yourselves immediately available to start looking. Within a few hours you were able to discern those things that we value in a home. You didn’t stop there. You looked out for us every step of the way– finding new options and at the same time alerting us to financial and environmental pitfalls. When we did find the home that spoke to our hearts, you walked us through every legal and financial detail. You went the extra mile at every turn. Nothing was left undone. Superb! Thank you so very much.”

“The path to purchasing a new home is one of many twists and turns – some positive and some negative. While there is often excitement at the prospect of finding your new home – there are many disappointments. The process is quite daunting at best and frequently exhausting. Success in this process naturally results in a new house. Yet the more important measure of success is to actually feel good about the new home and the process that that took you there. While a professional guide that is knowledgeable of the market is an absolute must – ultimately you require assistance from a professional that is deeply invested in you and your search.  In our search we had the outstanding good fortune to have found Jim & Gloria Coon at Alleda Real Estate. This team had the needed knowledge of the marketplace, the insight to understand our needs in this search, the passion to commit to assisting us, the ability to keep us patient with the process, and most importantly – a deep sense of caring & warmth that our ultimate happiness with the results of the search was what mattered most.”
