The Cascade Lifestyle team of Kristi, Catherine, and Monica far exceeded our expectations by providing us with a professional, quality, fair, and pleasant home-purchase process. As our realtor, Kristi listened to our needs and facilitated the process on our behalf in a way that was timely, transparent, and compassionate while coordinating with Catherine and the seller for an outcome that we felt was agreeable for all parties. We have truly never had such friendly and overall amazing service and support, and would highly recommend Cascade Lifestyle Group to anyone buying or selling a home.

Catherine and Kristi are by far the best realtors my husband and I have ever worked with. A few things stood out: 1) extremely fast response time, 2) very proactive in checking in and highlighting new homes/opportunities that were a good fit for us since we were buying from out of town, 3) exceptional network and knowledge of all things Bend to help match us with an area and home that made sense for our family and secure a good price, and finally 4) continued support post move! Catherine and Kristi have been extremely helpful in helping us navigate the actual process of moving in, making intros to other families, and providing referrals for services. They clearly care about their clients and about building long-term relationships.

Kathy and Dave B.

Dear Catherine - Thank you very much for your assistance in helping us sell our property in Bend.  We still count our lucky stars on meeting you at your open house all those years ago. Your professionalism, knowledge, and attention to detail is unmatched. Your future clients are in for a real treat when they "sign up" to do business with you. Thank you!

Carol and Gary L.

Kristi Kaufman is the best! She made the whole process of buying a home in Bend easy. Kristi fulfilled all our dreams and goals with true professionalism but also kindness and personal attention. Her legal background is definitely an asset. She has the quickest response time to an email or phone call we have ever experienced. She goes above and beyond. We highly recommend Kristi Kaufman and her team.

I needed to sell my house while I was out of town because I had already purchased our new one. Catherine said “let’s get this done!” Magically the house sold within a week thanks to her expert marketing. Perfect timing and I was an ocean away! I appreciate her and her colleagues so much!

Sofia G.

Catherine is a fantastic and very professional realtor, she is an excellent support system. Always available and there for you for questions and explaining the process.

Catherine and her team are amazing and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a home in Bend, you won’t regret it.

Mike D.

"When we decided to purchase a home in Bend, we did our research and landed on Kristi and Catherine. Since we live in Northern California, having someone in the market, who knew the market well and that we could trust was our number 1 criteria. We needed a realtor partner that got to know our purchase criteria intimately so they could identify the right property when we weren't around to do a live walk through on our own.
Catherine was all over it! Her communication was so consistent that we felt like her only client. In the end, she was able to secure a property that met our expectations and negotiate terms that were ideal for us, especially in this hyper competitive, low inventory market. We could not be happier."

Matt N.

"I had the pleasure of working with Kristi and Catherine as both a Seller and a Buyer these last few months. They helped me convert a "stale sale" into a property with higher demand. This left me in a position to buy a new home! Throughout the process I was met with professionalism, responsiveness, and patience. I highly recommend engaging with this team no matter where you are in your journey with Real Estate."


"We have completed four transactions with the Cascade team and all have been handled professionally. They always respond immediately. I highly recommend the team and will continue to use them in the future."

Dave D.

"Kristi is the best! She was recommended to us and helped us define what we were looking for over the phone before we came to the area to begin looking. Kristi had prepared a list of great properties for us in several neighborhoods, always referring to what we told her were our priorities. She clearly listened and put together a great plan. We found our perfect home on our second day of searching making our trip in from out of town the most productive and pleasant experience we could have imagined. I plan to buy from Kristi again as we plan our second home purchase! This team is amazing! Thanks Kristi!"

Jeff L.

"These two ladies are amazing to work with. They sold our home and made the transaction as painless as possible. They made phone calls, met with repair contractors and even  met the carpet cleaners as we were out of town. If you ever need a realtor in Bend, Or. These ladies are who you need to use. AMAZING! And thanks again for all your work."

David H.

"Catherine and Kristi absolutely blew away our Realtor expectations! They transformed our very lived-in home into a market-ready model house. They advised us every step of the way and managed to guide us through the fastest escrow I've ever been involved in without a worry. It was very tough market timing, and I saw nearly all of our comps languish while we closed thanks to their expert pricing, listing, and staging guidance. I could not recommend this powerhouse team more highly!"

Greg L.

"My brother and I used Kristie and Catherine for the sale of our mom's house after she had passed away due to cancer.  Both my brother and I live out of state and Kristie and Catherine bent over backwards to ensure a smooth sale.  Kristie and Catherine gave us options around their commission structure and were clear and about what was/was not included.  They had a number of connections and were able to coordinate services such as lawn care during the time the house was being sold.  Kristie and Catherine were extremely knowledgeable about the neighborhood, current market conditions and we hit the sweet spot in pricing our mom's home on the market.  This resulted in 5 offers the first weekend with 4 of the offers above asking price.  The sale went very smoothly with no issues and my brother and I were very happy with the service Kristie and Catherine provided!"

Jan O.

"We can't say enough about our positive experiences working with Kristi Kaufman.  Her attentive personality, knowledge of the area and professionalism made the buying experience, not only, easy but, also, a pleasure.  In fact, four family members have relied on Kristi to help find their new homes and we are all so happy to have her as our agent!"

Carla A.

"We moved up from California almost two years ago. I Interviewed a few agents on the phone but didn't feel like any were a good fit until I spoke to Catherine Scanland. I knew with in 10 minutes, she was my agent. She was so professional, knowledgeable about Bend and the various neighborhoods, zeroed in on my family needs immediately, extremely communicative, smart as a whip, and made the house hunting process a fun experience. I came up for one trip and we were able to find my house within two days. Catherine's depth of experience in the Real Estate world made the buying process seamless. Her partner Kristi is as strong as an asset as Catherine. I felt like I was in the best hands, especially dealing with a new purchase out of state. I would highly recommend this dynamic duo for such an important purchase. Their commitment was hands down nothing I had experienced in purchasing a house. Pure pleasure!"

Sheri M.

"Working with Kristi and Catherine was fantastic! They represented us with both the sale of our home, and the purchase of our new home.  We so appreciate that they took the time to ensure that they understood our hopes - often anticipating our needs. They quickly launched a proactive sales plan by swiftly staging our home, arranging for a professional photographer and setting up an open house - all within a few days. Then our home sold in one day!  The process of finding our next lovely home was enjoyable. Their follow-through is impeccable. Refreshing."

Michelle B.

"I am thoroughly impressed with the professionalism, efficiency, and knowledge that the two of them provided in the expedient sale of my home. I can't emphasize enough how much trust I placed in their experience in real estate and Bend and the market. They were very patient in assisting me with finding a new home to purchase, in a short amount of time, and were genius in their negotiations. I would recommend them highly to anyone who is looking for a good team to represent their real estate transactions."

Lisa K.

"If you're looking for the best Realtor team in Bend, look no further! Kristi and Catherine are an amazing team. They helped us seamlessly move from California to Bend. They've also worked with my parents and our dear friends. These gals work hard for you! They are very knowledgable about schools in the area and neighborhoods. I could not recommend them enough!!"

Sean B.

"Kristi and Catherine helped us transition from a vacation rental to a couple traditional rentals with a 1031 exchange. They did a great job staging and publicizing the home for sale, and then they searched out the replacement properties from homes all over Central Oregon. Through the complicated process we knew that we could count on them to handle the little details, and they were always very attentive. With their guidance, I think we made the best investment decisions."

Chad C.

"We moved up from CA this past summer and consulted with Catherine on recommendation from our friends who did the same move over 2 years ago. What can I say? Catherine is classy, down-to-earth, and so, so knowledgeable about the Bend market and nuances of each area of town. She helped us narrow down the neighborhoods to those that would support our goals in Bend, but also accommodated our desires to see some properties in other areas. It wasn't long before she felt more like a friend, and was even there to guide us as we emotionally struggled with our decision to move away from our friends and family in CA. My wife still texts with her and has lunch with her occasionally, and we both 100% recommend Catherine if you are planning a move from out of the area, or within Bend. We luv you Catherine!"

Julie F.

"We just love our home that KRISTI found for us. She was patient and kind and showed no concern when we wanted to look at multiple homes. She was a professional, and so fun to work with. If you're looking for a place in Central Oregon she is the person to go to."

Lani M.

"My husband and I love, love Kristi and Catherine!
They were our agents when we moved to Bend from CA.  They were always by our side and supported us--while in CA and Oregon--through the entire home buying adventure.

They're professionalism, marketplace knowledge and caring nature were greatly appreciated. We highly recommend Kristi and Catherine.  They get the job done!!"

Patti D.

"We used Kristi and Catherine on our last three real estate transactions. We have been very impressed with their commitment to finding and fulfilling our particular needs as well as their follow up through the whole process. Their professionalism is unsurpassed in our experience with many varied real estate transactions. They were a pleasure to deal with and made our move to Central Oregon successful in every way. "

Nicole M.

Aimee R.

"We have used Kristi as our realtor 3 times now (buy, sell, buy).  She is amazing.  She has lived in Bend so long, she knows all about all the neighborhoods and often hears about listings sooner than other realtors.  She will really listen to your needs and desires and find you the perfect house.  She is such a pleasure to work with and makes buying a house fun, not a chore."

Lisa T.

"These ladies are the best!  They went above and beyond to take care of our family's housing needs and to welcome us into the Central Oregon community!  They are very knowledgeable and we were so fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with them!  Thank you Kristi and Catherine!"
