Real estate is a highly personal business. That’s why our Brokers are chosen as much for their people skills as for their real estate experience, education, and business savvy. They know their neighborhoods. They have strong relationships. And they’re relentless in the pursuit of helping people realize their dreams.

History of Company

Windermere Real Estate/Lane County (the Company) has deep historical roots. Founded in 1974 by Jean Tate, after great success the company was sold in 1989 to a group of eight local real estate brokers. Jean Tate Real Estate became part of the Windermere franchise in 1998.

Since 1972, Windermere Real Estate has been serving the Northwest with more than 300 offices in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Wyoming, California, Arizona, Hawaii and British Columbia. Residential real estate is the mainstay of Windermere’s business, with offices and associates specializing in single-family housing properties, new construction, condominiums and upscale properties. Windermere has a long-standing tradition of giving back to the communities it serves. Every time a Windermere associate completes a real estate transaction, a portion of the commission is donated to the Windermere Foundation, a not-for-profit organization. The funds are then distributed to homeless assistance programs within each office’s community.

Matt and Tanya Powell purchased Windermere Real Estate/Lane County in April 2003. The Powell’s were brokers with Windermere/Jean Tate Real Estate prior to ownership. Windermere/Jean Tate Real Estate became Windermere Real Estate/Lane County in December 2005. Both Matt and Tanya have been active in the real estate community and other professional business associations.

In 2013 Elliott Wood partnered with the Powell’s joining the team as a Principal Broker/Owner.

The Company is the largest real estate company in the area, with approximately 100 residential and commercial brokers in Lane County.
