BEND, Ore. (PRWEB) March 22, 2018
In 2017 Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty hit $1.3 billion in closed sales thanks in part to its robust growth and expansion to Portland, Willamette Valley and Oregon Coast markets. Part of that growth and volume comes from the brokerage’s unique expertise in the sales and marketing of acreage properties like farms, ranches and vineyards.
Now, the brokerage is recruiting expert talent in Southern Oregon’s emerging destination wine country: Cascade Sotheby’s welcomes the region’s top-producing rural broker, Alan DeVries, to its elite team of farm, ranch and vineyard real estate experts. DeVries, who specializes in vineyard sales and last year alone sold $22 million in properties in addition to supporting the sale of Troon Vineyard, leads Cascade Sotheby’s new farm, ranch, vineyard listings in Southern Oregon.
“The elite group of specialists that make up the Farm, Ranch and Vineyard Division at Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty are world renowned for their knowledge and unusual expertise on what it takes to sell these exceptional properties—I am honored to join them and lead brokerage growth in Southern Oregon,” says DeVries. “This region is ripe for the Sotheby’s level of luxury, white glove real estate service—combined with the global reach of the Sotheby’s International Realty brand, the prestigious Farm Ranch and Vineyard Division will now unite buyers and sellers around the world with the finest acreage properties in Southern Oregon.”

The wine business is thriving in Oregon, with over 700 wineries operating today—and most independently. Local growers bring in higher average revenue per case than other regions throughout the United States, making it a great opportunity to own a vineyard in Oregon.
In 2016, Southern Oregon was named one of the best wine travel destinations in the world by Wine Enthusiast magazine, bringing long-overdue recognition to the region’s world-class wine-growing soil. Cascade Sotheby’s growing vineyard team offers expertise in all aspects of vineyard properties.
From soil analysis, an understanding of AVAs and establishing market values for farming equipment and inventory, it takes extensive and precise knowledge to sell these prodigious properties. Cascade Sotheby’s brokers are trained in all aspects and are immersed in experiential learning with the Sotheby’s International Realty family of vineyard brokers in Sonoma and Napa.
