Ray Perry

“Sales is in his blood!” is a common statement about Ray Perry, a top-selling Realtor. Perry’s direct sales career began when he was in grade school in Calistoga, CA selling raffle tickets to raise funds for the local 4-H club. Perry continued gaining sales experience while selling Grit newspapers door to door for several years. When Perry was in high school, he and a fellow student started a newspaper and sold advertising to help pay for the expenses. He also ran a business washing the windows of local merchants downtown.

After graduating from high school, Perry enlisted in the Air Force where he was a Law Enforcement and Correction Specialist. He was stationed in Texas, Oklahoma, Korea, Nebraska, and Colorado. After an eight-year tour, he went to college in Colorado Springs and then moved to Medford Oregon. Perry went back to direct sales with a short stint selling cars and continued in sales with fifteen loyal years with the Kirby Vacuum Company, winning many sales awards and managed offices in Roseburg, Grants Pass, and Ashland.

Perry returned to Calistoga to care for his ill mother and opened a Kirby franchise office in Lower Lake and later offices in Lakeport, Ukiah, Eureka, and Napa. It was during this period that Perry’s interest began to shift to real estate and he bought and sold several properties.

“The day selling for the Kirby Company stops being fun, I’ll sell real estate,” Perry would often say. That day happened in 1998 when Perry got his real estate license and went to work selling real estate. He brought with him a dedicated work ethic and persistence to see the job is done. Perry earned his Broker License in California and Oregon, managed a branch office where he had become the top-selling Realtor in the area, ranked in the top one percent of the county. He currently is the Broker/Owner of Ray Perry Realty in California and is a broker with the professional agents at Oregon Life Homes in Douglas County Oregon.

How does he do it? “Ray is dedicated to staying on top of cutting-edge technology,” according to his previous broker, Phil Smoley. “He was one of the first agents in the county to have a personal website (RayPerry.com) and one of only a half dozen agents with an E-Pro designation in the county.” These technologies allow Perry to keep in touch with many of his clients via Internet automation, which frees up time to continue giving personal attention to those who need it most.

In addition to his high volume of sales, Perry had been active with the local Board of Realtors and its Multiple Listing Service (MLS) in both Lake County California, and Douglas County, Oregon. In 2003, Perry was instrumental in setting up a new web site for Lake County California Association of Realtors, was on the MLS committee, was President of the Lake County Association of Realtors in 2012, on the Legislative Committee, and headed up the task force looking into new technologies for updating the Multiple Listing Service. He has served on the Douglas County Association Board of Realtors.

Perry is the pastor of Gateway Family Fellowship in Drain, Oregon, and is deeply concerned about issues and events that are happening in the community and area.
