Claire moved to Bend when she was six years old and has called Oregon her home ever since. She has seen the area go through an incredible amount of change over the years; she understands both the desire of locals to keep Central Oregon's small-town culture alive and the need to adapt to population growth as people continue to discover the beauty of Bend. Her career in real estate has provided her with an opportunity to be involved in the community as it changes while helping people make their dreams of living in Central Oregon a reality.
Though Claire's education background is in Political Science, International Relations and Mediation, she grew up watching her mother, Carol Donohoe, build a successful career in the Central Oregon real estate market over 13 years; Carol'sexpansive knowledge, experience and certifications won her multiple awards and placed her in the top 2% of agents in Central Oregon consistently throughout her career. After traveling to Cyprus to study international conflict and mediation efforts, Claire found that she wanted to apply the same techniques on a local level. While attending Portland State University, Claire also worked as a property manager in Downtown Portland. Combining her education, work experience, desire to help people, and admiration of her mother's success, she decided that working in real estate was the clear choice for a career she loves!

Their passion for real estate gets them out of bed in the morning, while completely satisfying and delighting their clients helps them sleep at night.
