Springfield Real Estate
Springfield is a working class town of around 60,000 residents, with its history rich in the timber industry. It’s home to the 3.5 mile long Springfield Mill Race, a partially natural, partially hand dug waterway that was constructed in 1852 to support the local mills and lumber industry, and now is populated with native fish and wildlife, including spring Chinook salmon and western pond turtles.
The Washburne Historic District covers more than 29 blocks around Springfield’s downtown, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987. The neighborhood includes numerous homes built between the 1890s and 1940s, many with the original residents names still posted on the homes.
Springfield is believed to be the inspiration behind America’s longest-running sitcom, The Simpsons, and a self-guided tour is in order for any fan of the show. There are many statues and landmarks throughout the Springfield area that pay homage to the show, including a mural of the entire family that was recently painted in downtown Springfield, and a life-size replica of the family sitting on their infamous couch at the Springfield Museum.

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 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 was a pleasure to work with – very thorough and ALWAYS available.
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.
Bill was absolutely great.
Never met a better realtor!
Excellent source of accurate information.
If I recommended R&R Properties a thousand times, it wouldn’t be enough. My husband and I are new parents and first time home buyers. We had absolutely no idea what we were doing, but we were excited and ready to dive headfirst into the home buying process. I don’t know what we would’ve done without Bill. He helped us every step of the way: giving advice, making himself available on our lunch hours or his days off, sending us emails weekly, and basically holding our hands throughout the entire p…
Bill was very helpful with the whole process.
Matt is a great person. Very professional. I was very satisfied with his services.
