Tawnya Collette

Broker, licensed in Oregon

As a long time resident of Central Oregon, I can provide information that pertains to you and your needs (schools, jobs, recreation) when looking for a new home.  

Selling has become a global game.  Zillow and Realtor get their information from our listings on MLS but we also use other tools like Facebook and Instagram to get the word out about your property.  We are able to reach buyers everywhere they have internet and it's amazing the inquiries we get from people looking to relocate to Oregon.

As for me, trust and dedication are very important.


These days it’s hard to know who to trust to keep your best interests in mind.

In Oregon, it is legal for a Broker to act as both the Seller’s Agent and the Buyer’s agent in the same transaction.  This is called Dual Agency or Disclosed Limited Agency.  This happens frequently when a Buyer sees a sign on a property and calls the listing agent to see the home and starts working with the agent.  In the end the agent then receives 100% of the commission, not just the standard 50%. 

If I represent the Seller, I probably know what he is willing to take versus his asking price.

If I then enter dual agency and represent the Buyer too, I will know how much they are willing to offer. 

In my opinion, in this situation it is not possible to act in the best interest of either party.  For that reason, and to reassure my clients that their best interests are my only focus, I will not take on dual agency transactions. 


My reputation and livelihood depend on my clients being happy and satisfied.  I am always looking for new ways to find my client’s dream properties or find the right buyer for my client’s property.

From social media to physically scouting properties and asking owners if they would like to sell, I go the extra mile for my clients.  This dedication to my clients is something I feel all buyers and sellers deserve.


I would love the opportunity to assist you with your real estate needs~

"Tawnya has been an amazing help, she goes out of her way. She has been helping us for over a month now. I would definitely recommend her if you're looking to buy or sale."

"Tawnya assisted us with the sale of our home. The time she took to explain the process and certain aspects took away all our concerns and stress. She was very patient with us and went beyond what we expected. We strongly recommend her to all."

  -MJE, Client

"Tawnya has provided professional, helpful, and extremely timely response to multiple real estate related requests over the past year. We were considering selling our home in a booming market and needed to know what options were out there, Tawnya pleasantly helped evaluate the risk vs reward from the selling and rebuying standpoint. We toured several locations one in particular a wonderfully well built home from the golden age of construction locally. Unfortunately we never quite found anything that called us to relocate. From home and land showings to market analysis and evaluating current holdings nothing but positive feedback! If (when) we had moved forward Tawnya would've been our choice to represent us for both the sale and purchase of a new home."

"Highly likely to recommend 03/08/2019 - craft0324 Showed homes in 2018 in Prineville, OR. While visiting Prineville I wanted to look at a few properties and contacted Tawnya for information. She was very knowledgeable on the area and able to quickly setup showings. Although we did not end up purchasing in the area I would highly recommend her."
