Our mission is to build an unrivaled partnership with our clients, through the knowledge, creativity, networking, and dedication of our team, leading to superior results for our customers.
I am an Oregon Native and Bend local for 27 years. I was raised on a family farm, my father being the fourth generation Ropp to own and work the land. I attended Southern Oregon University in Ashland, Oregon where I studied Criminology and the Culinary Arts. I have a passion for great foods and learning the law. Durring my college years I spent most of my time in the kitchen learning old world techniques, and some time studying international law.
I live an active lifestyle, and where else better to do it than Central Oregon. I am an avid skier, and downhill raced for Mountain View durring my high school years. My other passions include backpacking, hiking, camping, mountain biking, riding my dirt bike and reading a good book. On any given evening you can find me walking the numerous trails at Shevlin Park with my trusty lab Omar (Named after the infamous Omars Restaurant and Bar in Ashland, Oregon).
My background, knowledge, expertise and youthful attitude is a guaranteed formula for our success.
My areas of expertise are endless. However, I specialize in Relocation Services, first time home buyers, investment properties, short sales, foreclosures, vacant land and the smaller local builders who prefer to build a nice custom home. In the mid to late 1990's I worked with a local builder who taught me a lot about the building trade. I learned how to swing a hammer, frame a wall and sheet a roof among other things.
Through RE/MAX I have a vast Global Referral Network at my fingertips. I can assist in the sale of a home in most areas of the world. I am licensed to sell real estate anywhere in Oregon and I have been known to travel around the state helping buyers and sellers with their next move. If you need any assistance with finding the right Realtor in your neighborhood I am the person to call.
Beyond Bend I love to assist in the sale of homes in Redmond, Prineville, Madras, LaPine, Sunriver, Sisters and Crooked River Ranch.

If you are in the market to buy or sell a home, I would strongly recommend using the expertise of John Ropp of Century 21. John made my home-buying experiences hassle-free endeavors. With my busy work schedule, it was difficult to find the time to review the houses of interest on the market. John understood what I was looking for and presented me with only the houses that met my requirements. The Several occasions that I have sought John's help, my requirements have been different. John was able to find what I was seeking each time.
I was extermely impressed by John's integrity and professionalism every time I have worked with him. In addition to assisting me with several home purchases, he was dealing with multiple clients at the same time. His ability to multi-task was impressive. With me alone, he was scheduling inspections, writing counter offers and addendums, and dealing with the many other facets associated with home buying. It was always easy for me to get a hold of John. If he wasn't available at the time of my call, he was very prompt in returning my call. He also responded promptly to any emails I would send him.
John's knowledge of the real estate industry, efficiency, and easy-going demeanor make him a highly efficient real estate agent. I look forward to working with John in the future when I am ready to purchase or sell another home.

John Ropp and Chris Quinn helped me to sell my home of the last 15 years in the Spring of 2006. I was so impressed with the integrity of these young men. I was presented with only qualified buyers. All the hassles that go along with selling real estate John and Chris minimized to the fullest extent. My phone calls and questions never went unreturned or unanswered. They kept me apprised of all the latest developments and their plans reguarding my property at all times. I accepted a very good offer after only 3 weeks on the market. John and Chris offered sound advice whenever asked and gave me every opportunity to make the deal I wanted to make. Even the few bumps in the deal they worked out to every ones satisfaction. After I sold my home I needed to find a new one that would work with my in home business and lifestyle. I was shown every house I was interested in on my schedule. They provided me with a large selection of properties that fit my needs, at least on paper. When we first saw the house I purchased all three of us knew it was the right place for me to be. I would highly recommend these gentlemen if you are considering selling or buying real estate.

Being new to the Bend area and working full time made purchasing a new home a stressful task. John and Chris alleviated much of this stress with their knowledge of the area and their willingness to work around my schedule. They really listened to my desires and helped me sort through the myriad of listings by truly understanding what I was looking for. They helped me find the right house in the right price range to fit my lifestyle and were really fun to work with throughout the whole process.
John Ropp spent over 6 months helping us find the perfect house on property. It was only our second home purchase and first home purchase with acreage. John continued to dedicate much of his time exploring and researching different properties for us. I know we were challenging clients for him because of our high expectations and limited knowledge on property ownership. However, John never showed any impatience with us and never failed to find the answers we requested. He was also very effective in listing and getting our previous house sold. John is easygoing, personable, and enjoyable to work with. We feel comfortable recommending him to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home.
