Meet Dixon Bledsoe

How it Began


Dixon played an integral role in putting what is now called BST Realty LLC on the map. He and Lisa Santana, sole Owner and Principal Broker of BST Realty LLC, teamed up around 2008. Their successful partnership led to them starting a local brokerage together. Brittney Black, Principal Broker, also came on board at the time and provided wonderful support to the blossoming local business. Over the year’s their success grew. Dixon has since transitioned from partner and is an amazing contributor to BST Realty LLC. The brokerage has grown into a thriving business sales increasing each year and more wonderful agents coming on board to the team. After all, when you provide simply the best service, you tend to attract people of the same caliber.

Wisdom and Expertise


When it comes to expertise, Dixon’s wheelhouse covers a lot. He’s a certified Fine Home Specialist, a Home Residential Specialist, and a Military Specialist. From millennials to seniors, Dixon loves the opportunity to work with a wide variety of clients. This is also true for types of properties. Dixon loves working in residential, rural, commercial, and much more. He offers a lot of knowledge, and he’s also not afraid to go figure it out. The world of real estate is constantly changing, so being adaptable and a problem-solver is crucial when it comes to being successful.


As you can tell, Dixon is a person you want to know. Especially, when it comes to real estate. When Dixon isn’t focused on real estate, he enjoys spending time with his family. He’s got some lovely granddaughters he spends time with, and he also likes to tee off at the golf course. Dixon also deeply cares about his community. He’s involved in many local organizations, and he wants people to realize that everyone plays an integral part in lifting each other up. If you ask Dixon whether his glass is half full or half empty, he’ll let you know, “My glass is half full and I’m darn glad to have a glass.” At BST Realty LLC, we are so proud to have Dixon as a champion on our team. If you’re thinking about buying or selling real estate, Dixon will meet you with wisdom, honesty, and integrity every step of the way.

Growing Up and Choosing a Path of Real Estate

Lisa moved around a lot while growing up which helped spark her interest in real estate. After having been a stay-at-home mom for 17 years, she decided that it was time to venture into real estate.

Since then, Lisa has been enjoying working with clients and building long-term relationships. She built a local business with Dixon, of which she is now the sole owner. At BST Realty LLC, there are many benefits to becoming an agent. The biggest reason is having a heartfelt and strong sense of community. Mentorship is also key to cultivating community and making sure that all agents feel supported and receiving the tools they need to be successful. Not only that but also connecting them with resources that will help them grow and learn even more.

Uriel Santana, Lisa’s husband, and Jenna Robles have been doing a fabulous job with the property management division as well as being real estate brokers. Uriel and Jenna offer education to tenants and make sure that landlords are not only receiving rent on time but also that their properties stay in tip-top shape. There are also some plans in the mix to begin revamping the Silverton location. So, please make sure to keep a lookout for what changes are going to be made!

Family is Everything

When Lisa isn’t doing real estate, she also enjoys time with family. Lisa loves to knit, and her adorable dog, Remi. She also loves taking her annual rafting trip with her husband, Uriel. They’ve been taking this trip for many years, and she loves the feeling of just being out in nature. She especially loves being on the pontoon boat. And, she’ll even take her knitting out camping, too. Of course, Lisa loves spending time and babysitting her grandkids. She has 10 grandkids and counting, so let’s just say it’s a full house!

Enjoying time with family and all those grandkids!

Supporting Community

One thing that people may not be aware of with BST Realty LLC, is how we are involved with our community. This is because we truly value and cherish it. It’s community that gets us through the hard times, and it’s also community that helps us flourish. We are involved after-school programs, Silverton Area Community Aid (SACA), Silverton Sheltering, soccer teams, the Silverton Dodge Ball Fundraiser, supporting programming that combats military suicide called Active Heroes, supporting Homes for Heroes as an affiliate, and more. Lisa says, “We work really hard to give back to our schools and the heroes among us in our community.” And, some of the money BST Realty LLC receives is given back to our community.

In addition to this, Lisa serves on the Kiwanis Board, and is currently serving as Past President. She is on the Silverton Kiwanis Club’s Committee for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, because she believes that books should be accessible to all children.

Meet Sheldon Lesire

Meet Sheldon Lesire

Meet Sheldon Lesire, one of our wonderful agents at BST Realty LLC! Sheldon uses his knowledge of home loans and background as an educator in his real estate expertise. Growing up, Sheldon would hear his dad talk about his work in home loans. Later on Sheldon started working with kids in Junior High at Eugene Field, and realized he loved working in education.

A career path in special education

Sheldon’s career path veered in the direction of education. He learned while going to college that 80% or more of youth sent to juvenile detention centers may qualify to be in special education. From that point on, Sheldon sought out to make sure students were getting the support they needed so they would be more likely to succeed in life. That’s why he chose the professional path of special education.

Joining the Team!

Sheldon eventually bought a home in Silverton and no other than Dixon Bledsoe was his real estate broker. Dixon noticed how Sheldon’s background was so perfect for real estate, that he asked him to come on board! Sheldon thought about it, and realized it was aligned with what he was doing in life, and moved toward becoming a real estate broker. When asked how Sheldon thinks his professional background in education aligns with real estate, he said, “It’s all about people and being able to explain fairly complicated concepts. It’s also really important to be connected to the community and have a problem solver’s attitude.” With real estate, sometimes things don’t go as they’re anticipated, however Sheldon says that’s just a part of it, “We can’t just throw our hands up and it’s done. We’ve got to be creative and tackle things one by one.”

Sheldon having fun celebrating a close with his clients!

Since March, there have also been some changes with how education and real estate are conducted. Sheldon works for Silver Crest School, a part of the Silver Falls School District. He noticed more growing pains with the school system in general, because some students benefit much more with in-person classes. The good news is that there have been some changes in fall to accommodate for students who really need that in-person teaching experience.

Achieving Your Goal

Sheldon also noticed that real estate seemed very well suited for an online platform, and has adjusted well. Some of the most rewarding things about both real estate and teaching are when he sees someone get that look on their face that shows, “I’ve got it!” Sheldon reflects on how it’s, “the best thing in the world,” when a person he’s working with achieves their goal.

At BST Realty LLC, we are proud to have Sheldon on board as well as our many stellar agents. We are a proud affiliate of Homes for Heroes, and teachers are just one of the groups of essential workers who may qualify for this home program! As we have discovered with Sheldon, we have agents that are multi-faceted with a lot of valuable experience to offer when working with their clients. We’re here to help you in the buying and selling of your home, and to make the process as seamless as possible. Give us a ring, and let’s start talking about how to make that happen!
