Testimonials from Keith Petersen’s past clients. See what Keith’s clients have to say about him

“Keith was great to work with. Great knowledge of the Sunriver area; very knowledgeable on home upgrades and personal references to local contractors and retailers. Thanks for all your help.”


“To say that Keith went above and beyond the call of duty would be an understatement. We worked with him through bids for 4 houses in Sunriver. One of them involved obtaining several contractors to bid on repair work that was needed. We needed these estimates to give us an idea of what we were getting into, Ultimately, we decided that we couldn’t get that house due to the ultimate costs involved with brining it up to a good standard, We have Keith to thank for helping us through the process. In the house we ultimately purchased, the seller was not responsive at all in our negotiations. Keith kept an even demeanor throughout, and even contacted us several times after closing to make sure that we had everything we needed. Strongly recommend him if you are buying a house in the Sunriver area.”


“Keith returns calls/emails promptly. He’s knowledgeable of the area, as well as, local building codes and home owners association rules. He helped me find a lot and negotiate a price with the buyer. I highly recommend Keith and will use him for any future real estate needs I may have. He has earned his high rating.”


“The first time I met Keith Peterson it was an easy decision that he would be our realtor. With his thorough knowledge of Sunriver and he surrounding areas he was a fountain of instant information. He was even acquainted with all the homes for sale in the area! Then, he was so patient with us as we looked at just about every thing on the market! With our first purchase smoothly completed we decided about 3 years later to own a second Sunriver house and, of course, called Keith for a repeat performance. We now own two homes here. Keith doesn’t quit at the end of the sale giving with good follow up to be sure that details and questions are satisfied and he has my most enthusiastic recommendation to anyone.”


“I am lucky to have found Keith. I was selling a property in Oregon and lived out of town. Keith was able to assist me with everything from out of state. He went above and beyond to help me and family. Thank you Keith.”


“We have worked with Keith on many transactions. He is extremely enthusiastic and will go to great lengths for his clients. His knowledge of Sunriver and the surrounding areas, makes him a go-to for your real estate needs.”

Snow Shoe Oregon

“I first contacted Keith Petersen by phone when I was beginning a relocation search from Minnesota and considering several regions in OR. Keith was always willing to spend time with me to bring me up to speed on what was available in Bend. He listened carefully to my criteria and asked good questions that helped me narrow and refine the types of listings that would answer my needs. When I met him in person, he was completely focused on finding places that would suit me and as we looked at numerous offerings was always using the reactions I had to what he was showing me to present new options that better suited my sometimes shifting priorities. It was a pleasure working with him, I never felt pressured in any way and am very pleased with the home I bought and with the level of commitment and focus Keith displayed in making sure that I had all the information and help I needed to make a good decision. Couldn’t be happier with my experience, I recommend Keith with no reservations.”

Merrill Ferguson

“I have bought and sold multiple properties with Keith Petersen while living in and out of the state over the years. He is by far the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. Keith is honest, reliable and will work endless hours to make sure the job is done how you want it to be. Whether you are buying your first home, your second dream home, looking for investment properties or moving and selling he is the best choice for it all. “


“Keith’s expertise and experience came in most handy when selling our house in Sunriver. Keith had to manage a number of unexpected roadblocks and he did so with patience and adept people skills. He had a solution for all obstacles and, although the closing was delayed a couple of times, things were always calm and fully under control. A positive outcome was never in doubt. Both we and the buyers came away happy!”

Hank Pfeifle

“Keith made the home buying experience for my wife and I stress free. He always kept us informed and is extremely knowledgeable. We have already referred him to our family and friends. He is very kind, knows the area and people, we virtually knew our neighbors before we moved in. Thank you once again Keith!”


“Keith provided a very professional service and went out of his way to make the sale happen. We live remote from where the physical location of the house and he very helpful helping us find contractors to complete some required work. He was also very accessible and responsive to our needs. I’ve been involved in several home sales in the past and Keith was more knowledgeable and helpful providing process expertise and helping negotiate a successful deal than most others I’ve worked with in the past.”

Roger Wintermute

“I have used Keith as my realtor a few different times. Anytime I call Keith to show me a property or write up a offer on something, he takes it very seriously. Offer is written by the end of the day, or the property is shown to me within 24 hours. I would recommend Keith if you are serious about buying a house or property. You won’t be disappointed!”


“Keith Petersen was fantastic realtor! He was very knowledgeable of the area, straight forward with advise about possible problems and benefits of the houses we viewed, and was very responsive to all of my calls.

“Keith Petersen is one of the most knowledgeable realtors we have ever had the pleasure to work with. He not only answered all our questions very quickly, but did so in a very professional and personable manner. Keith is a very upbeat individual who is always on time and always puts his clients needs before his own. He definitely is working in a field that he loves as it clearly shows in his strong and honest work ethic. If you need a realtor and would like a pleasant experience through your home buying or selling process i would highly recommend Keith.”

The Masuen Family

“Keith is absolutely one of the best in the real estate business. He is professional, patient, personable, ethical, and caring about his clients. He takes time to really listen to what people are looking for in a home, and gives honest observations on both the good and bad points about homes being looked at. My recent home purchase in La Pine was an amazingly smooth process, in spite of a “bump” just before closing, in large part due to Keith’s hard work. He was always right there in answering questions by phone and e-mail, and ready to help with anything. It was a pleasure to work with Keith, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area. Thank you, Keith!”


“Keith Petersen is one of the very best in the Real Estate Professional world. We bought land from him 16 years ago and he just sold it for us recently. Keith is very professional, knowledgeable as well as very personal. He will take care of all your needs! Both transactions were seamless and smooth. We will use him again when we move over to Central Oregon.”

Thank You

“Our purchase was a contingent sale of our out of state property to purchase in Oregon, with Keith representing our Oregon property purchase. Keith demonstrated great integrity, knowledge and an amazing results-oriented outcome. This was our first contingent sale experience, it presented complexities on both transactions, with many players involved, accelerated deadlines and many moving parts. Keith handled any potential roadblocks swiftly and with great expertise, to achieve our desired goals and timeline. We truly appreciate all that Keith did to make our new home purchase a reality. And, we absolutely love our new home!.”

Mr & Mrs Storlie

“Keith was very knowledgeable about the local real estate market and he and his assistant were always professional and helpful. The actual sale of our house went very smooth – he was great about communicating with us when needed and handled all the details so all we needed to do was pack and move!”

Happy Customer

“Keith is the best! He knows the local market, is realistic in negotiations, and most of all I feel he is ethical, a trait which I require when working with a RE professional. Keith only showed us properties within our price range and with the specific features desired (Had to have a water view). In addition Keith is adept at working with all personality types of buyers/sellers and other real estate agents during the negotiations process. Evenings, weekends, early mornings, Keith always promptly returned my calls/texts and is such an energetic positive person. I would absolutely highly recommend Keith for your Central Oregon RE needs.”

He was knowledgeable on the property and didn’t pressure us. Keith still sends us properties that fit our parameters. I would not hesitate to refer Keith to a potential buyer.”

“My wife Kelly and I met Keith several years ago when we had a key issue on a rental house in Sunriver. We arrived late Sunday night and could not get into the house. Keith was on call and responded instantly and left his Sunday dinner to come to our rescue. Great first impression! When we started shopping for a home to buy in Sunriver, the first person we contacted was Keith Petersen. Our buying experience was absolutely top notch from start to finish. Every detail was handled with precise care. The characteristic that stands out the most to us was his friendly professionalism. If he says he will do something, he follows through. He responds very quickly to all communication. We highly recommend Keith Petersen as a real estate agent and will always use him in the future! We have already recommended Keith to our relatives that are considering purchasing in Sunriver.”

The Henderson's

“Keith represented us for the sale of our home. The house sold quickly with no issues. In my opinion Keith is a five star salesman across the board. Highly recommended. Thanks again Keith.”

Happy Customer

“Keith Petersen and his team were terrific. Keith counseled us on a fair asking price for our property. If we had needed a septic test, he offered to get it set up for us so that we did not have to manage it long distance. While we did not get our asking price, we chose to take the offer as it was a cash offer, no contingencies and a very good offer and came in within 3 weeks of listing the property. Keith’s team kept us informed and directed the closing to a very capable title company that worked with us long distance as we were traveling. We worked with Beverly Sherrer to connect with Keith and his team and Bev helped tremendously. She had been our realtor in the past and we were pleased to find that she was still working in the Sunriver area and was teamed with Keith. We interviewed another real estate company that was not well informed and counseled us to low ball the listing price. So pleased that we called Bed and found Keith. If you want to have a great experience selling or buying property in Central Oregon, call these folks.”

Happy Customer

“Keith made our home buying experience what it was. His only concern was serving us. He was available whenever we needed him. We wish everyone has a chance to work with Keith and his team, it will really make a huge difference. Thanks Keith and Misty!”

The Parkers

“We could not say enough wonderful things about Keith Petersen! He made the whole process smooth, easy and successful! He had great advice on making the initial offer and got us a fabulous deal! He also has many connections in the area and helped with recommending contractors and other service companies in the area! We would highly recommend him to anyone and we will use him again in the future!”

Happy Customer

“I was delighted with the work Keith did for my family and I in finding and securing a home for us in Sunriver. We were not exactly sure of what we wanted but after a couple days looking Keith had a fairly good idea. About a week later Keith called and said he had the perfect home for us. We made the drive to look at the house and he was right. Keith did an excellent job in negotiating the price and the repairs and making sure the transaction proceeded in a smooth and timely manner.”

Happy Customer

“Keith went above and beyond to help make the purchase of our dream house happen. We were on a time limit to sell our house and purchase a new one. He made everything happen very smooth and within our time limit. Keith is very dedicated to providing exceptional customer service.”

Happy Customer

“Keith was very helpful in more ways than we expected when he was showing us the many homes that where for sale in the area. His knowledge of the area and building-planning codes were very helpful. He was always there to answer any question. When we decide to sell our primary home, then we will be talking to Keith again.”

Happy Customer

“Keith was awesome and I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He goes way beyond the call of duty and is willing to help with so many of the intangibles. Keith is a great human being and typifies the great people of Bend! I would do business with him again.”


“Keith did a great job representing us in both a purchase and a sale. He was always on top of things and made the process go very smoothly. I would recommend Keith to anyone considering using his services in the Bend area.”

Happy Customer

“Working with Keith in the purchase of our home in Sunriver was a delight. The work Keith did for my family and I in finding and securing a home for us in Sunriver was excellent. We were not exactly sure of what we wanted but after a couple days looking Keith had a fairly good idea. About a week later Keith called and said he had the perfect Sunriver home for us. We made the drive to Sunriver look at the house and he was right. Keith did an excellent job in negotiating the price and the repairs and making sure the transaction proceeded in a smooth and timely manner.”


“Keith Peterson is a testament to patience! We chose Keith because we could see he was well networked. He lives close by so he lives and breathes the local area. This was important because Sunriver and the surrounding area is a different market altogether than Bend. His office was in the heart of Sunriver and his advertising was virtually everywhere. Each time we’d visit Central Oregon from Portland over the 8 years we’d worked with him, he would continue to show us more properties without judgment. We knew we wanted a place to get out of the rain and congestion but couldn’t decide which type of property would work best for us. Figuring out the right type of property meant choosing between a Sunriver condo, Sunriver home, rural property on the river with 100 year flood risk and a number of other scenarios. Finding the right one for us was challenging and try as we might, we couldn’t pull the trigger. It had to fit us since we knew we’d be there a long time. Keith was never frustrated or pushy but worked with us through a process of elimination, helping us identify properties we didn’t want. He was always patient, professional and helpful. He provided us with the relevant market data that helped us clarify which property would work for us. In the end, we have a cabin on the Deschutes that we got a great price on, is sandwiched between two beautiful homes of much higher value, in a development that will only increase in value. We are excited about finally having a place in Central Oregon and highly recommend Keith Peterson to others who have the same goal.”

Happy Customer

“Keith was great to work with and is very knowledgeable of all properties in the greater Sunriver area. He was responsive to our property search and quickly found us a wonderful riverfront home on the Deschutes. He knows Sunriver and assisted with a prompt closing and post-move in conditions. We would highly recommend him for any real estate needs.”

“Keith Petersen was a wonderful Realtor to work with during our 7 month process to find our dream vacation home. We contacted Keith via phone in August 2012 while we were on our last day of vacation over in Central Oregon. We had stayed at Crosswater for a week and really enjoyed our time there. Keith was gracious enough to squeeze us in last minute as we were getting ready to head back across the mountain to Salem. We were interested in mainly looking at Sunriver homes at first and over the next few weekends of coming over to Sunriver for Saturday or Sunday showings, Keith probably showed us 20 different homes in Sunriver. After not finding what we were looking for, we expanded our showings to Crosswater and Caldera. We came close to purchasing a home in Crosswater but it just didn’t feel like a perfect fit for us. We really started to concentrate on Caldera and enjoyed all that they had to offer and the fact that it was a newer development. Keith knew one of the builders, and asked if we could just peak at his own private home so that we could get a feel for the quality. That really sold my husband and I on Caldera Springs and buying a home from that builder. There was a home just being started and we waited out the winter for it to be completed and then came over in early spring to make an offer and purchase. Through out this whole process, what I really enjoyed about working with Keith was his knowledge of everything in Sunriver, Crosswater, Caldera and the surrounding area. He was able to provide us with so much information that really helped us in our final decision. He also has a great personality which made it easy to spend countless hours driving around in his car looking at properties. My husband and I are very social and Keith fit our personalities, which made communication very easy. Keith also quickly returned emails, phone calls, and answered many questions. We are very picky and do not jump in to things quickly and Keith never grew frustrated with us or pushed us at all which is very refreshing coming from a Realtor. All in all it was a fabulous experience to work with Keith and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Central Oregon area!”

Happy Customer

“If you need a Sunriver Real Estate Agent we highly recommend Keith Petersen! We have worked with Keith on buying two homes and are in the process of selling one. Throughout our experiences we never felt pressured or that we were wasting his time. We took a long time before purchasing our second home and he was always attentive to our needs.”

Happy Customer

“Sunriver Real Estate Agent Keith Petersen represented us on two separate occasions — one being the successful sale of our Sunriver rental house during a short sale, and the other in selling our primary Central Oregon residence; both of which occured during very difficult real estate selling environments. Always very responsive and extremely capable, I would only choose Keith Petersen for all my real estate needs.”

“Sunriver Real Estate Agent Keith Petersen made the experience of buying a home quick, easy, and most of all – successful. We are SO impressed with his knowledge of the area, trends, and the people involved. Keith didn’t leave us when it was over. He, to this day, jumps when we call to “fix” whatever the question is that we have, whether it be referrals to agencies, where to find something, or who to talk to. One day we were trying to move a large piece of furniture and decided to hire it done so I called Keith for a referral. Instead he came right over bringing a couple of “strong arms” and they did the deed in a hurry. Can’t say enough–if you want what you want when you want it, Keith Peterson is your Sunriver Real Estate Agent!”

Happy Customer

“Looking to buy or sell a home in Central Oregon? Keith Petersen is the realtor to call! Last fall we purchased a home in Sunriver and on the recommendation of a friend we contacted Keith. He quickly assisted us in identifying our priorities and helped us locate the perfect home. Keith is extremely knowledgeable about the properties in the area and his follow through was most impressive. During the entire process he was very professional, diligent, responsive, and patient. He attended to every detail during the closing which helped us tremendously, as we live in the Portland area. His service hasn’t stopped now that the sale is complete. He is always available to connect us to local resources and will show up to assist with a minute’s notice. Keith went beyond our expectations of a realtor and we give him the highest ratings in all categories!”

Happy Customer

“I chose Keith Peterson to handle an estate sale at the recommendation of my father, before his passing. My father was a real estate agent in the same community for 30 years and had the utmost respect for Keith’s character and expertise. Keith handled the estate, in our time of sorrow, with great finesse. I would recommend him above all the agents I know in the Sunriver community.”
