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.

Our purchase was TRICKY (VA loan and out-of-town lender), but Bill helped us with every hurdle and fought for us. We couldn’t be more satisfied.
Our experience with Matthew Briscoe was simply outstanding. My wife and I were looking to move to Eugene from McMinnville Or and I contacted him looking for listings. Matthew worked with us on a very personal basis and helped us to find and purchase our dream house in just a few days. Matthew is knowledgeable and always available. He would always answer the phone pretty much any time of day or night. It was his local area knowledge and networking that enabled us to purchase our new home. We simp…
Century Bank have used their (Bill and Rebekah Nelson of R&R Properties of Eugene) Property Management and Real Estate services over the past 18 months to manage and sell other Real Estate owned by the bank. Fifteen months ago we held seven residential properties. As of this date we have none. Until each of the properties was sold, they were professionally managed by the Nelsons’, finding tenants, collecting rents, and managing rental issues. The Nelsons’ were instrumental in the marketing …
Vincent and Ellie Tami worked with my wife and I to find the perfect new home for us. They are attentive and worked diligently to make sure they found the perfect fit for us. We will definitely recommend all our friends to work with them when the time comes. Thank you Vincent and Ellie!!
Bill Nelson couldn’t have been more helpful to us. He was accommodating to our needs and we now own the home of our dreams.
Bill is the best! He’s always available to talk and is an excellent advocate!
Bill was terrific and went beyond our expectations. He really has helped us out even after the sale.
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.
If you are in the market for an excellent realtor or property management company I would absolutely suggest doing business with R&R Properties!! My wife and I just finished the process of purchasing our first home, and had the pleasure of working with Bill Nelson and his team. They made the whole process, from start to finish, unbelievably painless. Bill continually made himself available to show houses, respond to our never ending questions, and help guide us through the biggest purchase of our…
We will always come back to and recommend Bill for all real estate needs.
