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.

Bill was AWESOME. This was our first home purchase and he made it very easy! We are very satisfied with our realtor.
Tyler has great human kindness skills, honesty, kind and does what he says he will. He reminds us of our son.
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…
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!
This was a home building to completion. I will use Bill and his team as listing agents for all the homes I build in the future.
Never met a better realtor!
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…
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.
We felt confident throughout the process because of Darrel’s advocacy. Thank you!
Bill was a pleasure to work with – very thorough and ALWAYS available.
