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.

Matt is a great person. Very professional. I was very satisfied with his services.
We will always come back to and recommend Bill for all real estate needs.
Never met a better realtor!
Tyler makes you feel like you are his only customer! He sold our house for more than the listed price, in just 30 days. We had a wonderful experience working with Tyler. His team of professionals are very capable and provided excellent photography, interior design suggestions and a complete house inspection ensuring us top dollar. We found Tyler to be very hands-on and with prompt responses to our questions. He kept us abreast of all aspects of the sale. We highly recommend Tyler Demers.
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!
Bill was very helpful with the whole process.
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.
BY FAR THE BEST AGENT I HAVE EVER WORKED WITH!
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 …
Bill was terrific and went beyond our expectations. He really has helped us out even after the sale.
