Eugene Real Estate
Home to about 150,000 residents, Eugene is celebrated for its natural beauty, outdoor adventures, alternative culture, and passion for sports, particularly track and field (Nike found its beginnings in Eugene!).
Eugene is often referred to as “TrackTown USA”, and has hosted a number of world class track and field events, including the U.S. Olympic Trials, and the upcoming 2021 Track and Field World Championships. The legend of track icon Steve Prefontaine continues to live on in Eugene, as he is memorialized locally through a popular jogging trail known as Pre’s Trail, The Prefontaine Classic track and field meet, and Pre’s Rock, where he was tragically killed in a car crash.
A number of colleges are located in Eugene, including The University of Oregon, Lane Community College, and Northwest Christian University. This plethora of higher education institutions no doubt played a role in the more than 400 tech companies that call the Eugene – Springfield area home or helped Eugene make Fast Company’s Top 10 List of Up-and-Coming Cities for Tech Jobs.
In 1970, the first Saturday Market in the U.S. was founded in Eugene, and continues to run in downtown Eugene’s Park Blocks from April through November with more than 200 local artisans selling their handcrafted wares, along with local produce, food booths, and music.
The performing arts, visual arts, and music scene is alive in Eugene, with numerous galleries and venues throughout the town. The Hult Center for the Performing Arts in the heart of downtown is home to seven resident companies, including the Eugene Ballet Company, Eugene Opera, and Eugene Symphony and also brings national musical and performing arts acts to town. The McDonald Theater and Cuthbert Amphitheater are also great venues for seeing your favorite artists perform.
The second largest airport in Oregon is located in Eugene. The Eugene Airport offers non-stop service to ten destinations (including Portland, Los Angeles, Denver, and Honolulu), along with connections to anywhere in the world through the six airlines operating out of it.

BY FAR THE BEST AGENT I HAVE EVER WORKED WITH!
Working with R&R Properties and Bill Nelson has been a great experience. Bill and his team have always gone out of their way to be responsive and available to my wife and I whenever we’ve had questions or needed assistance, which to me are cornerstones for providing premier client service. Bill and his team have always treated us with the utmost respect, and Bill is extremely dedicated to making sure that he has gotten everything right for us, regardless of how much time and effort he has had to…
After hearing rave reviews about Tyler from a friend, we asked him to help us buy our first home. We are so glad we did! Tyler did an outstanding job. He was hardworking, quick to respond, and worked around our schedule to view houses. Tyler consistently maintained good humor and was an invaluable source of information about the home buying process. He was a good listener and was honest – we truly felt he was looking out for us. Tyler was on top of deadlines, making sure that details were taken …
We’ve worked with Bill Nelson and R&R Properties for several years and have a great relationship. He’s helped us sell and buy several properties. Bill is always there when we have a question or need anything. Whatever you need, he can make it happen. He works with a great team as well. We highly recommend R&R Properties of Eugene!
My husband and I were first time home buyers, and before we started the whole process, we were feeling intimidated and a little lost, not even knowing where to start. Our real estate agent, Matthew Briscoe, was supportive and helpful from the very beginning of our search. He recommended we take an informational class, which helped us learn about the many steps and different professionals involved in buying a house. During the search for our home, Matthew always kept in mind the specific things w…
My partner and I met with Rebekah just about a year ago to discuss how to go about renting out our place. She was very helpful in working with us to determine a solid plan that would allow us to move on with our lives mostly worry free. Her efforts were quickly rewarded with tenants moving into our place within a month or so. And she found/selected fantastic tenants that both fit our desire and their desire to locate long term residency. Since then, I have entrusted Rebekah with our property and…
Bill was terrific and went beyond our expectations. He really has helped us out even after the sale.
Tyler has great human kindness skills, honesty, kind and does what he says he will. He reminds us of our son.
I would definitely use Bill again – it was a very smooth transaction. I will also refer him to anyone else looking to buy a home in the Eugene area.
Tyler, please know that your handling of this sale has exceeded even my fairly high expectations. From the first meeting, through the lending process, and then to closing, you have kept me directed and to task on all that needed to be done to complete the deal. Your professionalism has been outstanding as has your commitment and patience. Thank you again so very much. If I have the opportunity to recommend a realtor to friends and clients you will top the list.
