Hi Lady Bat :)
Thanks for reaching out to find more information about our real estate and property management market here in Bend. I am definitely familiar with both markets and have referrals for you if you are in need of a rental and also obviously a ton of information in regards to real estate as well. Please call, text or email me if you'd like my help in finding you your next rental or home in Bend. There are great programs for VA loans (as you already know I'm sure), and my preferred group of lenders can assist you in getting that aspect started as well.
