"We are excited to add Mollie enthusiasm and creativity to our team at The Garner Group," said Sandy Garner, founder of the Bend, Oregon real estate company. "She has a fascinating background and a long history in the Central Oregon region that will serve clients well in the real estate space."
Mollie has lived in Bend, Oregon since 1993, and is a professional artist with an established reputation as a painter in the genre of abstract naturalism. Mollie's works are included in private and commercial collections across the United States and she is currently exhibiting at the Lahaina Gallery in Bend and Gallery 903 in Portland. Mollie was artist in residence for Central Oregon Arts in Education in the 1990s where she developed a program called Prehistory's Mysteries that combined archaeology and art. She also is a member of the Archaeological Society of Central Oregon.
Mollie joined The Garner Group last month upon earning her Oregon real estate license. Mollie gained knowledge of real estate and residential construction working in support of her husband, Kurt Jurgenson, who is a real estate broker in Bend. Her roots go deep in Central Oregon as her mother, Laura McMurdo (Brenner), was born in Tumalo in 1916.
