About Us



Our Story

As lifetime residents of Oregon, our local wealth of knowledge allows us to guide clients through the rural home buying and selling process with knowledge and ease.

As the PW Real Estate Team, Penny Dunlap and Whitney Paulsen collaborate as a mother/daughter team. We are native Oregonians and feel blessed to call Oregon home. Faith and family have been the most important and impactful influences in our lives. This is the foundation of our business as well as the driving force in our real estate endeavors.

Since 1984, we have operated a successful family owned business and pride ourselves in our entrepreneurial drive. Our strong work ethic has allowed us to continuously exceed in the buying and selling of rural, residential and commercial properties. In fact, our business has helped us develop and improve rural properties throughout the area. We know the Rogue Valley and surrounding areas inside and out. Our vast market knowledge assures that clients are introduced to all options in the marketplace — reaching beyond the MLS by working with us as knowledgeable and experienced Southern Oregon realtors.

Over the years, home owners have told us they wished they would have known more about rural properties and the area before they bought. Our number one priority is to assure that our clients fully understand their investment in a rural property, and we strive to make sure they are comfortable with their property decisions and acquisition. We work hard to meet client expectations, provide information and answer questions, and assist every step of the way.

Active in the Southern Oregon community for over 30 years, merits include:

  • Top 10 Selling Agent in area first year
  • 5 years on Jackson County Advisory Board 
  • 7 years on Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) On-Site Waste Water Advisory Board

As your PW Real Estate Team we’ll take the time to get to know you and evaluate all of your needs and expectations, in order to successfully meet your buying and selling goals. When we work together, you’ll soon realize why our clients continually refer PW Team to their neighbors, friends and family to assist with their real estate endeavors.
