Sunriver Homeowner Story: The McGibbons move to Oregon

Barb and Tom McGibbon’s trek to own a home in Sunriver was born out of a love for skiing and winter sports. Since 2001, annual family gatherings centered on Mt. Bachelor and enjoying the alpine ambiance that Sunriver offers.
Originally from Portland, Barb and Tom now live in Las Vegas. But after many family visits, Oregon steadily harkened them back. Sunriver appealed to them for its rambling landscape and the warm, welcoming spirit of the locals that brings about a relaxed lifestyle.
When they saw an opportunity to own here, they methodically began their vacation home search. They found Elizabeth at Sunriver Realty, and were impressed with her responsive, organized style – making the best use of their limited time. Must-haves included a single story plan, seclusion from busy streets and plenty of open spaces. Barb spent several weeks online comparing homes with the help of her Sunriver Realty broker. When she saw Spruce Lane, she knew it was the perfect gathering place for her and Tom, and their expanding family.
Unlike most Sunriver owners, Barb and Tom had never visited Sunriver in the summer. Now that they own a home they are anxious to explore the resort and the surrounding Central Oregon beauty in the warmer months. They’re most looking forward to hiking, rock climbing and kayaking. Tom will be rediscovering his lost hobby of fishing at the many lakes and rivers in our area. Annual gatherings in their own Sunriver home mark the beginning of a new chapter of special memories for the McGibbon family.
