Fred Gernandt has been a fixture in the Bandon real estate world since moving to town in 1970 and joining forces with his mother, Frances Cavoretto, and his brother, David L. Davis, in the business of property development and brokerage. During his five decades in the business, Fred has brokered countless transactions ranging from small houses on the beach to large ranches in Eastern Oregon and everything in between. As a developer he worked together with his brother in transforming large portions of Bandon real estate into neighborhoods and subdivisions with Seabird Terrace, Golf Links Estates, Strawberry Point, Pelican Point and Seabird Village to name a few. With this breadth of knowledge at his side, Fred always brings the most amount of experience and knowledge to any transaction and will work tirelessly to ensure a successful sale.
Prior to brokerage in Bandon, Fred lived something of a renaissance life and worked together with his family-owned businesses that ranged from dairy farming to golf course management in Bandon’s Westmost Golf Course and a short order cook at the Whistlepunk Inn (now Billy Smoothboar’s). Fred completed his undergraduate studies at The University of Santa Clara and also continued on to study at the Oregon Institute of Biology, Gonzaga University, and UC Davis School of Economics for his postgrad work.
Fred is a lifelong pilot who began flying when he was 17 and became instrument rated when he was 24. He still pursues it to this day and he has also begun flying drones over the past few years which allows him to synergize his passion for aviation with real estate marketing tools.
Keeli began her career in the real estate world over 25 years ago as a banker and mortgage broker. After years in the lending business she joined forces with Fred Gernandt and became a principal broker at David L. Davis Real Estate with the concept of bringing decades of banking experience into the real estate brokerage world. This experience has helped Keeli identify financing solutions at every level for first-time home buyers, investors and retirees who all have specialized financing needs which she is able to identify and help match to properties that will be suitable matches. With the ability to wear two hats in these transactions, Keeli is also able to make the purchasing process much easier for her clients with her ability to broker both the property purchase and mortgage financing all under the same roof and without having to deal with multiple providers for all of these interconnected services.
Known for her tireless work ethic and patient demeanor, Keeli will always have the time and energy to understand all the aspects of each individual situation and is a great listener.
A lifelong southern Oregon resident, Keeli grew up in Port Orford and has been in Bandon since the 1970’s
Fred and Keeli are very proud of their large family. Together they are the parents of four sons, three daughters, seven grandchildren and their constant companion, Chloe, the golden retriever.
