I have worked in property management and commercial real estate in Bend and Redmond for the last 20 years.  In those years I have met many contractors, sub-contractors and other vendors that provide services to property managers.  I met "Bear" Browne a long time ago when he used to work for one of the best known national restoration companies.  Over the years Bear has helped me out numerous times with flooding, snow/ice damage, sewer problems and other assorted natural calamities.  What I like about Bear is that he responds promptly, knows what he is doing, charges a reasonable rate and goes the extra mile to please the customer.

Bear has strong ties to Central Oregon, knows a lot of people and is not afraid to tell you when he thinks you are not doing everything you should be doing.  He has many years of dealing with insurance companies and knows what you can submit to them and how to submit it to help you get paid for your claim.  His experience and knowledge has made my job easier and has made me look good to my clients.  I recommend Deschutes Disaster Restoration to anyone dealing with natural disasters and damage to their home.  He can also help with "handyman" jobs and construction repairs.

I have hired Bear Browne several times to handle a wide variety of repairs at my managed commercial properties, including winterization of the buildings, preventative maintenance and repairs, and mitigation of water damage caused during last year's epic snowfall.  He managed the projects very skillfully and professionally, finishing on time and on budget.  With over 16 years in property management, I am confident that the quality of his services will continue to meet my high standards and believe that anyone using his firm will be as satisfied as I am.
