Background & Experience
Bruce has been involved in commercial real estate as a client, developer and broker for over 30 years. He has worked along the west coast from Alaska to California in commercial development, construction and real estate brokerage.
He graduated with a Bachelor of Sciences in Civil Engineering from Bucknell University in central Pennsylvania, then went on to acquire his Masters of Business Administration with a focus on real estate development from Stanford Graduate School of Business. He has used his understanding of business and development to gain over 50 successful land use approvals in Oregon, and develop 8 assisted living facilities in the Pacific Northwest. In addition, Bruce has generated close to $28 million in transactions in his time as a commercial broker with Compass Commercial.
Community Involvement & Interests
Being active in the community comes naturally to Bruce. He’s currently involved in the City of Bend Budget Committee and the Bend Chamber, and is a former member of Friends of Bend and Bend Centennial Committee.
When Bruce isn’t working on a commercial real estate deal or volunteering in the community, he can be found spending time mountain biking, Nordic or alpine skiing, whitewater paddling or on the Oregon coast surfing. He has lived in Bend for 24 years and raised his two sons and recently married Kimberlee Lear, a life-long Bendite.
