Since 1951

Integrity.Service.Community. These values are what drove REALTOR® Lisa Marie Boyd to become the current owner of Town & Country Realty. She purchased the business from Pete Sekermestrovich upon his retirement in December 2016.

Pete led the business with a commitment to supporting community and a team approach to helping customers. He oversaw Town & Country Realty from 1999-2016, maintaining the top position in mid-Willamette Valley real estate.

“It was really important to Pete that the next stewards of Town & Country came organically from within the company,” said Lisa Marie. Lisa Marie was a broker under Pete’s leadership. “Pete is known for saying ‘We do what is right, not what is easy.’” says Boyd. “Town & Country Realty is a legacy. It’s not just a real estate company, it’s part of the community.”

The legacy of Town & Country Realty dates back over 71 years, to 1951, when it was opened by Fred Hoyer in a small building on the corner of 6th and Monroe. In 1954, Hoyer also founded the Corvallis Multiple List Exchange, a property listing service that markets homes for sale to this day as the Willamette Valley Multiple Listing Service.

Jim McEldowney, a local real estate agent, purchased the company from Fred Hoyer in 1958. Jim McEldowney had “an abundance of confidence in the future growth of the Corvallis area”. Every year since 1958, Town & Country Realty has outsold all other local real estate brokerages. “We treat our customers like we would want to be treated,” Jim McEldowney said. “The major reason for our success is new customers who have been referred by others who felt they were treated right.”

Experience this legacy of integrity, customer service, and community involvement. You will be glad you did!
