One Bend City Councilman sees a lot of promise for 2011. Tom Greene recently joined the newly reopened Re/Max Key Properties here in Bend. Greene has been a realtor for about 34 years and was recently named the 2010 Central Oregon Realtor of the Year. Greene says being on the City Council has not been a problem for him: “Most people think that City Council is a paying job. And they don't realize that I am a realtor, still a realtor. And they think that I am on the City Council that, that's my paying job. We're basically volunteers at the City Council. But I still have been and always have been a realtor." Greene says there's been no City issues involving properties he's associated with; but if one ever came up, he would recuse himself from deliberations. Being involved in real estate, Greene says the outlook for this year will get brighter with each month.
