After 30 years in the corporate sector with the bulk of my experience in mid-management and public relations, I re-established my interest in real estate from back in the 70's in Albuquerque, as the young assistant to my mother-broker. Then in 2006, after finding myself attending a real estate investment group, I dabbled a bit as a real estate investor, and then made the wise decision to acquire my real estate license. This, right as we entered into one of the most trying and debilitated real estate markets since the 80’s! But, with my “pull up your boot straps” attitude, and a tenacious desire to serve our community, I became one of the top Realtors in our Association, specializing in helping people find their way through the financial crisis. The result? Over 150 homeowners saved from foreclosure. Those were some trying times, but looking back, it was worth every minute of hard work.
Now with our recovery, I put that same drive and passion to work, specializing in helping buyers and sellers from all over the country! Nowadays, I am able to provide all the latest – most up to date – internet and social media marketing and search tools ever! We haven’t completely put down the paper, but people don’t shop in magazines anymore, they shop on-line through modern technologies. As such, I can provide the highest level and greatest expansion of marketing, save clients money, and have a really fun time doing it! Even though I take my charge very seriously, and am a stickler for detail, efficiency and proactive communication, real estate can and should be fun! Give me a ring. I would be honored to assist!
My Testimonials:“Our experience with Marcia was so easy and comfortable. This being our first time doing commercial real-estate we had many questions and lots to learn. Marcia was patient with us and made sure we had a great understanding of all that was happening and going on. She was very accommodating to our time and was very on top of emails, paper work and corresponding with the landlord. We would definitely recommend her and work with her again!” Siena, Desiree and Alana, Bend 2021
“My wife Julie and I needed to sell a property in Prineville Or. We turned to Marcia Hilber in hopes she could find us a buyer. She actually helped us buy the property a few years back. In a short period of time she found us a buyer and was able to put a deal together for us. Any hickups or bumps along the way, Marcia is very Professional and knowledgeable and made the process smooth, also answered any and all questions or concerns my wife and I had. So if you need someone to BUY or SELL, Marcia is a champion in the field of realty and will have your back! Marcia, Julie and I are very pleased with all your work, thank you so much!” Nick and Julie S. Prineville 2021
“I would never wish the task of having to sell a home on short notice from 300 miles away on anyone – but if there is anyone who can manage that feat with grace, tenacity, pragmatism and perseverance, it’s Marcia Hilber! Up-front, always accessible, thorough and proactive, she made what seemed a daunting task a positive experience with her tremendous work ethic and good humor, got it done, and exceeded expectations. I highly recommend Marcia for your home sale and purchase needs!” Scott Pinkston, Prineville OR 11/2020
"I couldn’t be more happy with a friend’s recommendation for Marcia as an agent to help sell our Father’s home! She was extremely personable, professional and communicative throughout the entire process and made the situation of selling a home 'long distance' much less stressful. She was great to work with and helped us make a relatively quick sale!" Debbie Dille, Prineville 11/2020
“After interviewing several realtors in Central Oregon to sell our 5 acre lot in Prineville , we felt Marcia was the best fit. It was definitely the right decision. We knew that the sale of this property would not be easy or fast but Marcia’s knowledge and experience in this market made the sale happen in just over a year’s time. During the time the property was on the market Marcia kept us in the loop as to what she was doing to advertise the acreage. And when an offer was received she helped us with the unexpected task of getting a shared well agreement from adjoining properties. We appreciated her expertise during the process and would most definitely use her again. Looking to buy or sell we highly recommend Marcia!” Carol and Richard, Prineville, 2020.
"Marcia helped us both sell and buy our homes in Central Oregon last year. She was thoughtful in listening to our desires and preferences and applying them to her searches and investigation throughout the process. Marcia has many years of experience as a realtor in Central Oregon and it shows through her knowledge and actions. We enjoyed the time we spent with her and consider her our friend."
“Marcia made moving from L.A.to Prineville Oregon very easy.From the start she sent emails frequently with a good assortment of properties in our price range.She also included surrounding areas, that’s how we decided on Prineville instead of Bend. Once we found a place she kept us up to date with pictures and any new info on how the property was progressing (new construction).This was really important to us because we were still living in L.A. She was our eyes. She also helped me find a contractor to build my fence and she met with him at the house to make sure he had all the specs. Marcia went above and beyond what you expect from a Real Estate agent.She has become a friend and a great source to learn the layout of our new town.We would recommend her to anyone looking for property in Central Oregon.” Mickey and Cindy Beltran, Prineville, 2019
“Marcia was really fabulous to work with! Our family lived out of state and had to relocate to Bend. My husband found a house on a website we REALLY wanted to see. I contacted Marcia to get us a showing. We had such a good conversation that I felt connected with Marcia. She is real, honest, trustworthy and makes good on her follow through. She will make something happen no matter how long it may take! She knows the business and how to take care of her people. I can truly say we made a friend with our Realtor! Thanks, Marcia :)” Michele and Brian, Three Rivers South 2019
"This lady is an absolute gem! If you are looking for a Realtor who has your best interest at heart, who is honest and trustworthy, then look no further. The hard work she puts in on your behalf, coupled with her experience and knowledge, make buying a home seem like a breeze. Marcia is there for her clients 100% and it’s a comfort to know that her support doesn’t stop when the closing papers are signed. When you enlist Marcia in your house buying or selling endeavors, you’re not just getting a top notch realtor, you’re getting a friend.” Kevin and Daphne DeHart, Prineville 2019
"Marcia makes it happen. We first spoke with Marcia about two years ago. She was referred by friends who had recently bought a home in Bend using Marcia’s expertise. (They were also from out of state.) Marcia is the best at making you feel comfortable with your decisions, and lends good advice, especially if you are new to the area as we were. Over the course of two years, we looked at dozens and dozens of homes on various trips to Bend. Marcia was honest, patient and kind – I would have been pulling my hair out. We made offers on two homes that didn’t come to fruition due to the sellers pulling out of the deal at the last minute. It was all for the best because this past summer, after two years, we found our dream home. Marcia hung in with us every step of the way. She was direct with the selling agents, lender and all the various teams it takes to purchase a home. At this point she wasn’t about to let our dream home fall through. Being we were out of state made it complex but Marcia took the extra steps needed and managed some of the details on our behalf. We are now happy residents of Bend and can’t say enough nor thank Marcia enough in helping make our dream come true." Steve and Lise’ Bend, OR 2019
"We cannot speak highly enough of our experience with Marcia. We were first-time homebuyers with very little knowledge about how to find the right place or where to even begin. We knew immediately that Marcia was the Realtor for us when she responded to our emails and set up our portal while she was out of the country on vacation. Her dedication was apparent from the beginning. She is honest and hands on. We never felt forced to make an offer and when we finally found the one, she knew it before we left the house. I remember her saying to the seller, that we’d probably be in touch!! She was right, we both loved the house and wanted to make an offer that day. Our entire experience with Marcia was an A+ amazing job from beginning to end and we’d recommend her to any of our friends and family for their selling and or buying needs. Thanks again Marcia, we are so happy in our cozy little home and cannot wait to have you over for a barbecue!!!" Tracy & Wendy Dixon
"Marcia was great! We have been vacationing in Bend for 8-9 years! Five years ago we decided to retire here. Marcia was great from the beginning, Besides looking at 100’s of homes, she took the time to show us all around town! We learned a great deal of the history of Bend from her, and felt very welcomed. Well, we finally found a home in Nov 2018!! Yes! Marcia, was of great help with this purchase, she was there for the inspection and even joined the contractor to look at some remodeling after we closed. We live out of town, but I would do it all again with her!! Thank you again Marcia!" Ronnie Marsh Bend, OR
“I’ve known Marcia for 33 years, so when I decided to purchase a retirement home in Prineville, I reached out to her for assistance, knowing she had been a long time Realtor in Central Oregon. I was looking for my dream property consisting of large acreage, lots of trees, nice home and absolute privacy/seclusion, etc. Marcia was relentless in providing me with properties to view over the course of about a year. I did end up purchasing a wonderful place in April 2018. It wasn’t a property I would have probably chosen on my own, but when Marcia sent it to me, it did seem to check about 80% of the boxes, and turned out to be just what I was looking for. With that, I’m extremely confident that Marcia will dedicate herself 100% to assisting any client looking to buy or sell." Ray Beal, Prineville, OR
With Marcia’s help, we received an offer in 3 days and were able to close in less than 45 days. Marcia kept us informed throughout the process and was always available to answer our questions. We would highly recommend Marcia for all of your real estate needs. Maureen W. and Keith G. - Prineville 4/12/18
“I have worked with Marcia on 2 transactions, once as my listing agent and my selling agent. She is efficient, knowledgeable, responsive, and patient. She was always working ahead of schedule proactively to make sure everything was in place and ready for the next step of the process. Not only is Marcia an excellent Realtor she is an amazing friend. She made selling and purchasing a home for me as smooth as possible. Marcia is your go to agent for the Central Oregon area!” EC – Redmond, OR
“After last winter's snowstorms and cold, cold weather my wife and I decided to sell our home in Prineville. We interviewed two realtors after viewing their websites. We picked Marcia because of her enthusiastic presentation and also that she had recently sold a property in Prineville. We were very pleased with our selection. Our home was under contract in five days with a full price offer. Marcia was in contact with us every step of the way with advice about staging and the buyer's inspection process. We were away during much of the time and she assisted us with finding a great broker in AZ, as well as processing document signatures while we were in Arizona looking for our next home. During the two months leading to the close we got to know one another and we became friends. We would recommend Marcia enthusiastically to anyone seeking an agent in Central Oregon.” Ken and Patti M – Prineville, OR
“Working with Marcia has been such a great experience. I wanted to buy a new home and had worked with another Realtor to buy my current home. When I called and told him that I wanted to buy another house and told him about what I was looking for, he told me what I was asking for did not exist in Bend. The home I currently owned was previously owned by Marcia and I knew she was a Realtor, so I reached out to her to see if she could help. She immediately went to work for me a found exactly what I was looking for. Marcia led me thru the entire buying and building process, assisting with the builders, designers, the inspectors, etc. I was often out of town on business so she managed everything, keeping the process moving. I think she would have helped me pack if I had asked. She truly made the process so easy so stress free. I don’t recall when I had such an easy process of buying a home. She was so sweet when I did move in she brought me a beautiful plant, a plant for my little boy and also bulbs to plant in my new yard. I’m blown away with her being there every step of the way-she went above and beyond what I would have expected from any Realtor…and, as a result, she has become a friend too, which is really nice. If you’re looking for the “right” Broker to help you find a home anywhere in Central Oregon, I can’t recommend Marcia enough.” Julie Hendricks – Bend, OR
“During the last several years, Marcia has been our broker for the sale of three properties in Bend, Oregon. She has been extremely diligent in the preparation of the sales, as she proficiently organized all the necessary vendors, to ensure that the necessary inspections would be well conducted without any undue surprises. Her pleasant approach with potential clients was also a positive factor in the sales process. She was instrumental in the handling of other details, following a successful sale, minimizing the work that I, as the seller, had to personally get involved with. I highly recommend Marcia for her professional and personal approach to all aspects of the sales process of real estate. Undoubtedly, she will be equally capable to assist anyone in the purchase or sale of their property.” Hans and Marian van den Houten - Bend, OR

“Marcia is by far one of my most favorite Realtors in Central Oregon. This woman knows how to work! She stays on top of the paperwork and works hard to keep the joy of buying the focus. I always enjoy our transactions together....she's always ON it! And, she's a person who will do a good job problem-solving so the client doesn't have to. She has a huge heart to boot! She loves what she does, which makes her fun to work with. I highly recommend Marcia and have referred clients to her without hesitation. She sold a house of my friends that had been listed at least a couple of other times, unsuccessfully, with other Realtors. They contacted me to find a "better" Realtor and Marcia was my chosen Realtor to get the house sold quickly! She had it sold within a couple of months! She just rocks!” Kathy K. – Bend, OR
“Marcia was recommended to me after I had a terrible experience with another local realtor. I wish I had her on board from the very beginning! She has been a pleasure to work with.

I have referred her to friends and they also have had positive experiences with her services. Marcia is a gem!” Nancy – Bend, OR

"Marcia's knowledge of the local market, sales strategies and attention to detail fetched us well over our expected price for our west side bungalow. Throughout the process of selling and purchasing our homes, it was clear that Marcia kept our family's best interests in mind. If she hadn't found us our 'forever home,' I would certainly have Marcia represent us again." Kael LeGuyonne - Bend, OR
“I have such a depth of appreciation for you, Marcia. You stepped in, gave me hope, and helped my dream of home ownership come true! You took it seriously and did everything you could to make sure every detail was the best it could be. In addition, when I’ve needed a voice of reason, you have happily offered your talents. You have been more than a Realtor, you have been a friend. With deep appreciation….” Nancy Green - Bend, OR
“Marcia is the best! After trying to sell our house for several years, Marcia did it in several months. She was very professional yet on a personal level was very sensitive to our needs. Marcia is truly the greatest!!” Carolyn and Guff Thorpe – Madras, OR
