Your Real Estate Team
Brokers Matt and Zenita Lathrop moved to Central Oregon in 1989 for the same reason many other transplants have; they fell in love with the community and small town lifestyle. Over the years, a nomadic lifestyle emerged as they have lived in 8 homes in all areas of Bend; built one home; remodeled a log home on acreage and have recently found themselves exploring Redmond Oregon much to their delight. Homes and construction have long held a fasciation for Matt; having years of experience in the sales and construction trade naturally lead to bringing buyers and sellers together in real estate. Never one to shy away from a challenge, and a true extrovert, Matt loves helping people with their real estate needs. One of the reasons Zenita loves real estate is because it allows her to play matchmaker; between people and their homes. With a degree in accounting, real estate offers Zenita many opportunities to analyze data and have fun too. Both receive true satisfaction from working hard for their clients.
Along the way, Matt & Zenita have raised three children; started three businesses; with all still in existence; 2 under different ownership. They have truly enjoyed sharing their love of Central Oregon with their clients and friends. In the off hours you may find them kayaking on a mountain lake; walking or hiking along with enjoying the outdoors with their friends and family; most of who moved here after they did, which is a common phenomenon amongst Central Oregon transplants.
