Sandy is the most thorough real estate broker that I have ever worked with. We had a very difficult property to sell. It was my sister and brother-in-law’s home. As their estate’s trustee I was challenged to sell an Oregon property, though I lived 400 miles away in CA. Sandy helped with everything from clean-up crews, gardeners, painters, Etc. She actively marketed the home and sold it for higher than market price.
Sandy and her team helped my wife and I with three successful personal real estate transactions this Summer: two sales and one purchase. The properties included a luxury rural home, a mid-century time capsule near SOU, and an amazing view property in the hills just above town. Sandy and team drove the transactions with consummate professionalism. Each transaction went off without a glitch, as you might expect given Sandy’s significant experience and sensibility. My wife and I have concluded numerous home purchases and sales over the past 25 years, and we have never been better represented. We particularly appreciated Sandy’s friendly, collaborative approach. We recommend her and her team without reservation.
I have known both David and Chuck for more than 25 years. A few years ago, when we were looking for a house for my daughter, they helped me find the perfect place at a time when not much was on the market in our price range. They both know the ins and outs of home construction, so they helped us look at houses and ask the right questions. They also could help us see what a remodel might look like. They are both smart, efficient and very personable.
Then, a year later we were ready to sell our home and they were our realtors again. We were selling in the off season and were not expecting much action, but we got one offer and in the same day a full price offer. We have no doubt we sold that house because of the advice Chuck and David gave us on staging and outside work.
They are gems who complement each other well and get the job done with honesty, forthrightness and humor. We would never think of using anyone else.

My wife Patty and I have completed several real estate transactions with Sandy over the years, most recently the sale of a condo on Normal Street in Ashland. We have also been up close and able to closely observe several other transactions that she has facilitated for close friends of ours. She is an absolutely wonderful broker, and a delightful and caring person. Sandy is able to put the needs of her clients above her own, and I have seen her do some amazing things, including acts of profound personal generosity that I thought were breathtaking. In terms of her humanity and kind treatment of others, in the process of doing business, she is the single most outstanding salesperson we have ever worked with. Her valuations have been accurate and fair, her participation in home preparation for sale, and her conduct of negotiations, have been flawless. She has a profound moral and ethical compass and we have always benefited from her guidance. We are overwhelmingly happy to be her clients and obviously offer our very highest endorsement. This is a rare occasion when something sounds too good to be true. But in our experience, it IS true.
Building relationships, trust and confidence are not a thing of the past but are values one rarely finds in the business world these days. Sandy and her team excel in these areas along with a proven track record based on years of knowledge and experience in all aspects of real estate. She has helped us buy and sell three homes in Ashland, Oregon over the last twenty years. As a listing agent, she has brought offers that met or exceeded our expectations in terms of timing and price. As a buyer broker, she understood our needs and helped us find the right places quickly. If you want old school, highly personalized service, along with high tech marketing and sales strategies, no one does better than Sandy and her team.
It was a serendipitous event that led to our meeting Charles Bridges. We were reading the listings on the window of his office when Charles emerged with a client. He spoke warmly to us and encouraged us to return when he wasn’t engaged. We followed through on that offer and were very glad we did. We were leaving Ashland the next day, but Charles worked around his schedule to accommodate our plans and show us the properties which initially interested us.
Charles and his Royce Real Estate colleague, David Dismuke, worked with us long-distance for several months. On a subsequent visit to Ashland, they showed us an area of new houses and introduced us to the builder. That ended up being the area in which we eventually decided to build a house. It was during those months that travel became very restricted due to COVID, so we were especially appreciative of Charles’ and David’s long-distance communication efforts and constant offers of assistance as we worked through the challenges of building a house from afar with no opportunity to see it. Charles and David know Ashland and the surrounding areas very well and their insights and experience were very helpful as we became familiar with the town which is now our home. Their warmth, enthusiasm, and graciousness made working with them a pleasure.
Charles and David consistently went above and beyond. No request was ever too much—they offered assistance we hadn’t even thought to ask for. Though we’ve no plans to move in the foreseeable future we certainly would work with David and Charles again.

We have purchased at least eight homes or investment properties with Sandy Royce and her team (three this year). It has always been fun and exciting to discover just what we are looking for: our needs are heard, and we trust that together we will find the most suitable property, or...our dream home. Sandy insists on cleaning, organizing, and staging the home, and while we argue about taking down family portraits and putting away favorite souvenirs, she is right that the house shows better when she has her way--is allowed to put her expertise to work. The buyers come and we are satisfied, or we find the property we want and make a win-win for everyone. To sum up, Sandy is an excellent communicator, negotiator, and listener. She makes suggestions, does not push, and knows how to take charge and relieve both the seller or the buyer of a lot of the hard and nerve-wracking work. You can count on the Royce Team.
Sandy has been our realtor for the past six years. She is experienced and knowledgeable and attentive to details. Sandy understands the real estate business from her years of experience and knows the Rogue Valley real estate market extensively. Sandy is a real professional and a delight to work with. Couldn't recommend her more highly.

We worked with Charles and David when purchasing our new home in Ashland and I must say, what a pleasure. They not only showed professionalism and a deep understanding of the local market, but they also displayed a genuine enthusiasm for the process. Additionally, their communication skills were excellent and consistent throughout. They kept us informed every step of the way and worked tirelessly to help us find our perfect home. Buying a home can be a very nerve-wracking process but working with Charles and David actually made for a pleasant buying experience. We wouldn't hesitate to hire them again if the need arises. Thank you so much Charles and David!

We have used Sandy over the past 8 years or so to both buy and sell houses. She and her team have always been extremely helpful and provided services beyond our expectations.
Chuck Bridges and David Dismuke, we want to take this opportunity to thank you for all your hard work and expertise with finding us the right home in Southern Oregon. You both went above and beyond our expectations. You always responded to our questions/requests quickly and were an exemplary real estate resource for us. Especially considering how competitive the current market is, your guidance and perseverance helped us through the journey to find the right home. Your recommendations were right on, and we are very pleased with our home purchase. Thank you again and we would highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable and dependable real estate agent.

Chuck and David sold our townhome in Ashland Oregon in 9 days for full price. They were very professional realtors and were able to give us good suggestions about how to upgrade our home and stage it.
They answered phone calls in a timely manner and made our sale very easy. They worked with us from beginning to end and we were very happy to have them. We would definitely recommend them.
