Meet Lisa Santana! Lisa is the sole owner at BST Realty, LLC and Managing Principal Broker. She has almost 20 years of experience providing phenomenal service to her clients. Lisa is an expert negotiator and compassionate listener. Not only that, but she grew up in Oregon, so she has in-depth knowledge of it. One of the reasons she chose real estate was because she also just really loves looking at houses. She enjoys the excitement of showing a new home to a Buyer. Lisa also specializes in working with seniors, and she finds it rewarding to help families make a smooth transition. If you’re a Buyer or a Seller, Lisa is the person to call. She helps her clients at every point in the real estate journey, and she does so with quiet confidence and grace.
Growing Up and Choosing a Path of Real Estate
Lisa moved around a lot while growing up. This was also the start of her loving to see new homes. She remembers how it was fun to pick out new bedrooms. Later on, she helped her family find their home, and she thought this may be something she could do professionally. She had to ask herself the question, “What do I want to be when I grow up?” At the time she had been a stay-at-home mom for 17 years with three children who she home schooled for 11 years, and 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 Bledsoe, 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.
BST Realty, LLC has offices in Silverton and Keizer, and also provides property management services. 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!
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. And, the Kiwanis Club will be having a spelling bee in the near future, so please lookout for next year’s event in 2022. Service in the real estate community is also important. Lisa serves as the Treasurer for the Mid-Valley Association of Realtors and the Willamette Valley MLS Board as a Director. Supporting community is first and foremost a priority to Lisa.
