About Elvin Smith

I’m a native Oregonian, born in southern Oregon. Early in life, we moved to Polk County where I attended Independence Elementary and then Salem Academy for middle school. At Dallas High School I was active in the Future Farmers of America National Honors Society and was awarded Star Farmer in my senior year.

In 2004 I moved back to the Willamette Valley for family reasons. I earned my real estate license in 2006 and sold homes in Linn, Benton, Polk, and Marion counties for a decade before relocating to Bend Oregon. I now serve Deschutes, Crook, Jefferson, and northern Klamath Counties. My specialties are first time home buyers, rural, and investment properties. I love the challenges of figuring out my clients’ needs and goals, and helping them find their ideal property.

I have a loving wife and son and enjoy spending as much time with them as possible.

I’m a member of several clubs and organizations. My passion for vehicles keeps me active in the Toyota Land Cruiser Association and their local chapter, Cascade Cruisers.

I’m passionate about the outdoors and enjoy backpacking, camping, offroading, hunting, woods paintball, and just being outside.

What makes you special, why should buyers/sellers work with you?

“My clients cite my easygoing but attentive nature, straightforward, low-pressure approach and extensive knowledge of local markets and neighborhoods as reasons why they enjoy working with me.”
