I was born in Salem, Oregon and grew up in the greater Seattle area. I attended Washington State University to pursue a degree in political science, and communication with an emphasis in public relations. After graduating from college, I moved back to Oregon and worked for a non profit as a marketing and event coordinator. While working in the non-profit field, I became a licensed realtor to work with my father at BrightHome Real Estate Group, our family owned brokerage, and to pursue my true passion of real estate. I am a hard-working individual, who always puts the clients wants and needs first. Family values is a huge part of my life, so you are guaranteed integrity when choosing to work with me!

Madyson Jones

Broker Licensed in the State of Oregon

503-508-9490
License Number: 201229765
madyson@brighthomegroup.com

Hello! My name is Madyson Jones; most people call me Mady. I grew up in Salem, OR, where I’ve lived in Creekside, closer to the city, however, I've spent the majority of my life living out in the country. I love the country life: the houses, the land, and of course the animals. Growing up I always strived to be the best in my class. I remember competing with the boys whether that was sports or academics — attending every speech meet, math olympics and quite a few spelling bees. Academics was my priority. I later got involved more in sports, and then in high school — I got very lucky — My focus turned into my career. The sky was the limit for me. Both my parents had always been business owners and I learned a lot from them, especially that hard work can really pay off. So I started thinking about real estate. Most thought I was crazy thinking about being a Realtor before I even graduated high school. So what did I do? I pursued real estate. I've been in the industry since 2016 and have loved every second of it. I dipped my toes into a few different areas of real estate as well. From being a broker assistant, transaction coordinator, to a property manager. Property management taught me a lot, everything from dealing with tenants (I have plenty of stories to tell there), offering top notch customer service, communication, and providing an overall excellent experience for my clients. Now a full time Broker, I took all those experiences and qualities I’ve learned with me to build my business. Once I finished my first transaction, my decision to be a full-time Broker was cemented! Having satisfied, happy clients is the best! I would love to have you become another satisfied client! Here’s the thing: Our relationship doesn't end after our initial transaction is over. I work hard at staying in touch over time to be a valuable resource for you. In short, I'm there for you! I love meeting new people, whether you're just beginning to think about buying or selling your home, or interested in what the market is doing, give me a call! We can meet for coffee or lunch and talk.

Linda is a high energy and enthusiastic Professional who demonstrates her passion for Real Estate in the care and attention she provides each one of her clients. Linda was Born in Woodlands, Texas and moved to Willamina, Oregon at the age of 7 to be near her family. Linda discovered a love for sports at an early age and played volleyball and softball year-round while in high school. Juggling her academic load and commitments to her team as well as a part-time job taught Linda a strong work ethic and time management skills. It's not uncommon for Linda to work 6-7 days a week and long hours each day as she truly goes the extra mile to negotiate and advocate on behalf of her clients. After high school, Linda was awarded a full academic scholarship to Chemeketa Community College and was a member of the softball team. It was during this time that Linda began a career with Costco Wholesale. Linda didn't know it at the time, but Costco was a life-changing opportunity for her. Linda earned several promotions over her 9-year career with Costco and learned valuable leadership and communication skills as a full-time supervisor in several departments. She draws on those same skills and experiences to bring challenging and sometimes contentious real estate transactions together to a successful outcome for her clients. Although Linda enjoys a successful real estate career, she is only a few credits away from achieving her bachelor's degree in Business Science at Western Oregon University and intends to complete her goal of achieving her degree very soon. When Linda isn't working with her valued clients, she can be found volunteering with the local Little League and sharing her passion and love for softball with the youth in the community. Linda's husband Jonathon and son, Dominic are her foundation at home that allows her to give her all to her clients each and every day! Linda is awaiting your call and stands ready to work hard on your behalf.

Kevin Kenagy

Broker/Realtor Licensed in the State of Oregon

503-877-6000

License Number: 201216288
kenagy@realtorkev.com

I am a Broker/Realtor with BrightHome Real Estate Group. I embrace the technology and stream lined systems BrightHome Group provides to its clients. Prior to becoming a Realtor I enjoyed a very successful career as a Home Loan Specialist and helped many clients finance their first homes as well as investors and builders. My clients appreciate my lending expertise as I could help to demystify and simplify the home buying process. I decided to become a Realtor because I truly enjoy being out of the office meeting with my clients face to face, rather than processing paperwork in an office. My years of experience has lead me to be involved in transactions throughout the State of Oregon. I believe in customer service and return calls within 2 hours. Community service is particularly important to me and I continue to support the following Non-Profit Organizations: • Northwest Medical Teams • Salem Chamber of Commerce • The American Cancer Society, Canby and Oregon City Brother and I did Logistics for them • Portland Blues Festival • Byte of Oregon • Cystic Fibrosis Foundation • American Diabetes Association When I am not helping my clients purchase or sell their homes, I enjoy seeing my dad, brothers and sisters, finding new places to eat, concerts, fishing, watching movies, day and weekend trips, bike riding, hiking on the beach or up in the mountains. Below are some testimonials from My clients: "Kevin is the best, always looking for the buyers best interest, if i wanted to buy again or sell,for sure Kevin will be the first person i call. Thank you Kevin for helping us on the whole process of our purchase thanks to your help we found the house we can call home and where our kids will enjoy many years to come. " "I've known Kevin for a lot of years and he was the first one I called when I found and eventually bought a home in Woodburn. He is knowledgeable in both the lending and buying sides of the business. He went to bat for me during the process of buying my home via the VA , and I couldn't be happier with the way things turned out. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him if you are shopping for a home." Kevin helped me purchase an investment property on the Oregon Coast. He facilitated all of the logistics for me as I live in the Willamette Valley so I never had to travel to the coast to keep the purchase moving forward as Kevin handled everything for me. The transaction occurred just as Kevin said it would, without any problems or delays. When I decided to sell the Oregon Coast property, Kevin was the only Realtor I thought of. He brought a qualified buyer and a great offer the first week the property went on the market. Again, the transaction went so smoothly under Kevin's supervision. We closed without delay and I couldn't have been happier with my decision to hire Kevin Kenagy as my Realtor. Kevin is a wonderful Realtor and truly a pleasure to work with. He is very responsive, communicative, and prides himself on returning calls promptly. Kevin's years of mortgage lending experience is a huge benefit to his clients as he understands all facets of a real estate transaction which enables him to anticipate potential pitfalls. I would highly recommend Kevin Kenagy to my family and friends as his integrity, ability, knowledge, and work ethic are above reproach! Thank you Kevin for being so amazing at what you do "I cannot even begin to give Kevin a high enough rating or recommendation! He is far and away beyond any Realtor I have ever had the privilege to work with. When I found out that Kevin had changed fields and was now a Realtor, I was ecstatic! Kevin was my finance man on the purchase of my most recent home which took close to 5 months to accomplish as it was a short sale. He continuously had to deal with a very difficult Realtor and the bank that owned the home. Kevin walked me through everything for those 5 months. He helped me keep my sanity and was there for me at every turn. 8 months after the purchase of the home, my husband passed away unexpectedly and I found myself needing to sell the home to be closer to a family member who was battling cancer. This presented additional challenges for Kevin as I was often out of state with no cell phone reception. Kevin keep me informed throughout the sale via text and email and communication which made the sale so effortless for me. My home needed some work prior to the inspections and Kevin helped arrange everything. He dealt with my Kids and Animals as well as my difficult schedules and scheduled everything with the people who were staying in my home while I was away. Kevin even arranged for her and a mobile notary to meet the buyer at her place of work on her lunch hour to ensure a successful closing. Now that is Kevin, a class above & beyond. Thank You Kevin Kenagy!" "I am happy to say we had a wonderful experience with Kevin. He took on selling our Grandparents home like it was his own. This was an emotional sale to say the least. He was very good about answering all of our questions from start to finish. If he could not answer the questions, he worked hard at getting us the most accurate information possible. Whenever I called Kevin, he always answered the phone. I never once got a voicemail. Kevin was very good about checking in with us and communicating each step of the way. He made the sale of my Grandparents house as smooth as it could be. Thank you Kevin for your stellar work ethic!" "My house needed work and was not an easy sell, but Kevin was able to help arrange everything that needed to be done and to list and sell it promptly for full asking price. I was very impressed!"
