BST Realty, LLC Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story


Sheldon was very responsive from the first time we contacted him, even though we were just toying with the idea of buying and moving. He gave us the attention of serious buyers from day 1 and helped us get quick access to homes we wanted to see. We ended up buying in a new development that didn’t have much info online, and Sheldon was quick to get us information and an appointment. He also had personal experience with building that gave us some good insights along the way. Sheldon was responsive and helpful during the purchase - negotiation process, which took several rounds. Our builder was great to work with so we were eventually communicating directly with him during the build, but Sheldon was always available and willing to help if/when needed. He was thoughtful and timely with the paperwork needed, which was a great asset.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Lisa did a great job helping me sell my home.

She was proactive, extremely helpful and knowledgable about what needed to be done. She gets a great recommendation from me!


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Absolutely loved working with Lisa.

She always made time to work with my schedule, was verrrrry patient and honest with us. Made sure that we were not waisting our time on just looking at everything but what we actually wanted/needed. It took us 1 year to make a final decision and close but it was so worth the wait and I could not have done it without Lisas patients and hard work in making sure it was the right home. She ended up not only helping us find the right home but also 2.5 weeks before closing saved us with our loan by referring us to an awsome mortgage lender. I cannot say enough about her!! You definitly wont regret choosing Lisa Santana as your realtor.


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Angela was amazing to work with!

My family moved from Michigan to Oregon with no contacts or family in Oregon. Zillow assigned her to me as a local agent. She was very responsive and communicative. Angela was able to provide knowledge and expertise every step of the way. She really made this big, scary cross country move easy. I would 100% recommend Angela for anyone looking to buy or sell!

My wife and I have a relationship with Stephanie and Jeff that is a bit unique, as it goes back to our childhood school days.

Individually, Jeff and I grew up in the same small town and have known each other for over 30 years! My wife and Stephanie grew up together and have know each other for 30 years! And now, we have been able to get to know them together. To say that they are our closest friends would be an understatement. They are both very caring and dependable people who are willing to help those around them. They have spent time giving back to their local community by helping coach high school and junior high school sports to ensure that the kids had opportunities to learn and compete. The same can be said about their family and the importance of them in their life. Always willing to lend a hand or a place to stay, you can count on Stephanie and Jeff. They are the type of people you want to be around as they are genuine, honest and fun-loving and we are excited to be able to call them friends!

Jeffrey Berneski

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Lisa is extremely professional and always on top of everything.

She knows the area and is really good to work with. Both of my younger daughters have used her to buy their homes in Scio and Aumsville and we have used her to buy and sell in Lyons. I wouldn't use anyone else.

Janice Ashford


Tom Biehn

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Lisa is a hard working agent.

I have inspected several of sales and she resolved inspection issues quickly and got the sale closed. It was a pleasure to work with her on her requests for home inspections

David Shepard

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I have no words to adequately describe Lisa and her team.

To say my house threw me a few curveballs would be an understatement. I’m over a thousand miles away and she simply says I’m on it and bam it was done. I would encourage anyone needing to buy or sell a home to contact Lisa and her team.

Jeff Z.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ We had the best experiences with Lisa!

We can't recommend her enough. When we purchased our first home our realtor wouldn't show us houses and was rather stuck up.. Lisa has excellent communication and great people skills. Very thankful we found her!

Honest C

Over the years Mitch has helped me both buy and sell a home.

Mitch is easy to contact when questions arise and is always willing to offer suggestions based on his experience that he feels might help you with decisions that need to be made. Professional and easy to talk to. I highly recommend Mitch as an ally when it comes to your real estate needs.

William Brady

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ My wife and I are so glad that we chose Lisa Santana to sell our property in Oregon, being that we did not live in Oregon it was even more important of having the right realtor in place.

From day one she took control of every step necessary to get our property cleaned up and getting the right contractors in place for a very successful transition to the new homeowners. I highly recommend Lisa Santana of BST Realty LLC.

Mahalo, Gary/Jane Hawaii

Mieli is a wonderful local Realtor.

She was fast, very responsive and proactive in solution seeking throughout the whole house buying process. Whether I was looking in Salem or Silverton, she was super knowledgable and well connected to people in the area which facilitated just about every single aspect of the house buying, from turn around inspections and quotes to Julie Bersin, the worlds hardest working Loan Agent. If you are serious about those buying, make your life easier and have Mieli working for you.

Sylvie M

Mitch helped me buy my home in 2018 and we were able to close in about a week’s time.

This time around, Mitch helped me to sell my home in 2023. He did an amazing job and was always professional. He held many open houses and went above and beyond what most realtors do. I highly recommend him to anyone considering buying or selling a home.


Mitch has been such a tremendous resource for me in my search for a home.

He willingly drove 3 hours each way to tour a home with me and again to inspect it. That house, unfortunately, did not work out. But Mitch continued searching and was willing to do the same drive with me again for another house in the Bend area. He arranged everything, was always readily available to answer lots of questions, and has taught me a lot in the process. I've felt very confident throughout the home buying process with Mitch's help, and that's saying a lot since buying a home can be extremely confusing and stressful. Mitch has a wealth of knowledge, resources, and connections in the Oregon real estate scene. On top of that, he's an incredibly friendly and moral person. When searching for or selling a home, you want someone exactly like that. I would highly recommend that Mitch be your first call if you are looking to purchase or sell a home.

Walter Dutra

Mitch was outstanding in helping my mother sell her rental house in Keizer.

He was always prompt, prepared and friendly in a respectful and cheerful manner. His professional understanding and courtesy resulted in an outstanding process and a successful sale in a very short period of time. It's rare to have a sale come about in less than two weeks with an above listing price and super-fast turnaround on funding and closing, We would recommend Mitch to anyone looking for a superior sales associate. Our deep thanks to him for our experience.

Carol Laizure

Brittney was very helpful and knowledgeable in the process, she went the extra length for us to get into our home.

Brittney was one of three realtors whom I interviewed to sell my mom's house.

She impressed me right from the very start with her professionalism and thorough demonstration of how she would approach marketing and selling the property. My situation was rather complex as I live out of state and there were some unique ownership factors that required additional coordination. I'm SO glad I hired her! Throughout the process, she was patient, responsive, friendly, and kept us on track. She worked with me to develop a plan that made sense for my situation and I couldn't be happier with our timeline and final sale price. In addition - and for me, more importantly - this was a people-oriented partnership vs. strictly transactional. My siblings and I had a strong emotional attachment to my mom's house and Brittney helped us connect on a human-level with the buyers. I would hire Brittney again for any future real estate transactions, and I highly recommend her as a listing agent!

Matt Gibson

One of the things that stands out about Mieli is her ability to focus.

No matter what it is, whether it's planning something, working on a project, accomplishing a set of goals, or just listening, she has her attention completely focused on what's happening. She is amazing at paying attention to detail and isn't afraid of hard work. She puts all her effort into getting the job at hand done and done correctly. Mieli is also a wonderful and kind person. Her personality is very friendly, outgoing, and welcoming. She is a very helpful and caring person who would not hesitate to go the extra mile for anyone.

Sandra Kaeb

Brittney Black was instrumental in helping our family find our dream home.

She is patient, responsive, kind & a fierce advocate. She has deep roots and connections in the Silverton community, which really made the difference in getting great prices on the inspection, appraisal, mortgage, and ultimately, our house. During our 3 month home search, we never needed to wait longer than 10 minutes for Brittney to respond -- despite her being pregnant AND having a baby! She was always there to listen to our concerns with compassion and understanding. Her advice was always realistic and honest, NEVER pushy, cynical or impatient. We always felt reassured and heard. We are so grateful we chose Brittney to help us find our beautiful home. We honestly couldn't imagine a better experience than the one she provided. So, if you need a realtor, choose Brittney Black. She's just the very best.

She is so bubbly and cares so much about helping others. She does everything with so much passion. Jeff is a determined person and works so hard to get things done. He is so smart and cares a lot about others. Together they are a true power couple. They work very well together. They are strong as individuals and are also able to balance each other out to make such a great team.

Lina Ruvalcaba

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Angela was very prompt on responding to our questions and concerns.

She attended every inspection including meeting with the owners and even hiking the 24 acre property. She has many contacts who were able to assist us with repairs, painting. financing, whatever we needed! She was very aware of what repairs were needed and brought them to our attention. We were happy with her knowledge and expertise in helping us purchase our new home and look forward to working with Angela in selling our current house.


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ It's wonderful to have our home sold and closed so quickly!

And that's all due to Lisa. She confidently walked us through each stage of our sale with professionalism, and integrity. Always pleasant, available, and knowledgeable. So much so that we relied on her expertise when it came time to purchase our new home!


When we visited last November, we decided that maybe Silverton was the new home for us.

We were visiting from PA. When we walked into the office, our first impression was this lovely young woman with a great smile who made us feel at ease immediately. We worked with her by text and email until March, when we came back and Brittney had found the perfect house for us. Our offer was accepted for the house and we returned home. Brittney made it exceptionally easy for us to take care of the paperwork long distance and it made it very easy for us to move here and move in. I highly recommend Britney Black if you'd like a realtor who understands your needs and wishes and does the very best to find your new home.

We have deep appreciation for the direction , support, and guiding us through the purchase of our Silverton Oregon Home.

As we reside in CA. this virtual experience was challenging yet made easy (thanks to Julie) for evaluating market, selecting and viewing property, and making reasonable offer considering market. It was comforting to know exactly what were were signing and the details and risks with our deal. She also assisted us in getting necessary utilities installed and or appliance installations. Julies personality speaks for itself. Submitted with gratitude

They know the valley, know the people, and are quick to answer questions. Dixon has worked with us as both a buyers and sellers agent, and we have always felt well represented. No games. Just good honest salesmanship. Lisa is down to earth, practical and gets the job done. She has very good insight into what makes a property valuable to buyers.

Garrett ODoherty

We had Kanysah Rogers as our buying agent.

We were looking for a home in Tillamook, and not only was she responsive, she would drive over to the coast whenever we needed her. She was the most amazing buying agent; we were able to purchase our very first home with her. I would highly recommend Kanysah Rogers with BST realty! She will get you into the home of your dreams! - Emily Brown

I’ve known Sheldon for many years and was excited to work with him on this new adventure of my life. He made buying and looking for a house so much easier than is could have been. We encountered some hurdles but he was quick to help me stay on the path to find my new home. 10/10 would recommend! -


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ We worked with Lisa Santana and she was HANDS DOWN the best realtor we've worked with.

She made the whole process enjoyable and fun, even after looking at houses for months and months. I truly believe our experience would have been different if we hadn't had Lisa by our side. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy! She's so knowledgeable, and if she doesn't know something she figures it out quickly. She's definitely the best out there.
