“Ron and Terry were terrific. Received our questions and concerns graciously and attended to them efficiently and expertly. We sold both our properties very quickly. Their negotiations with the buyers proved to satisfy our concerns and get us our best price. I highly recommend their expertise! They are also gracious and interesting men!” — Eileen Heaton
“We’d like to thank Terry O’Neil for his outstanding service in helping us secure a multi-family apartment complex in Prineville. A broker friend in Portland actually referred us to Gardner Williams at Compass. Gardner subsequently put us in contact with Terry since multi-family is more his forte. Terry’s first step was understanding our needs and goals for commercial real estate. Then together, we began exploring numerous options in this tight real estate market — Terry educating us in the process. Like any transaction, there were some hurdles along the way. However, Terry was diligent, creative and hardworking in finding our current property. We found working with Terry a pleasant experience. He kept emphasizing that the deal needed to be “right” for us. We appreciated Terry’s experience, integrity, knowledge of the real estate market in Central Oregon and his finesse with people. We highly recommend Terry O’Neil.” — Steve & Maria Whitrock
“There are many reasons why Compass Commercial Real Estate is in a class of its own in Central Oregon. I’ve lived in Bend and owned commercial real estate for year. As the time approached to sell, I received a well written letter from brokers Terry O’Neil and Ron Ross at Compass Commercial. They justified their valuation and laid out every step that they and Compass could offer to affect a sale of my property.
So began a process like none I’d seen before in my over 30 years of working with other real estate firms from San Diego to Bend. For instance, I was sensitive to the needs of my long time tenants. Terry and Ron met with each tenant as though they were an extension of my care and concern.
Once the listing went “live”, it was less than a week before we received an offer close to the full asking price which culminated in a sale. Upon agreeing to a sale price the work really began. To do a transaction like this, it could not be done properly or timely unless the brokerage firm had the depth of resources, knowledge and reputation like Compass.
I can’t say enough about the talent, communication and passion Terry O’Neil and Ron Ross had in assisting me with every move and demand on this sale. I will genuinely remember this great experience and not soon forget the outstanding service and dynamics Compass Commercial provided.” — John Rice of Rice Properties (This is a condensed version, please click to read the full testimonial.)

Thanks to Terry and his hard work we were able to find such a building and a lease agreement we are very satisfied with.

He displayed a high degree of personal integrity, excellent customer service and great interpersonal skills that we feel was key in the success of the process. We would highly recommend Terry O’Neil for any commercial real estate needs.” – Laura Dove-Kroo, PHR, Operations/Human Resources Manager, BestCare Treatment Services, Inc.
