Windermere Heritage is a boutique Brokerage located in the heart of downtown Salem, Oregon. Founded by Ryan and Ashleigh Fordham, Windermere Heritage seeks to redefine what it means to be a boutique Brokerage, backed by a brand that’s all in. The Windermere Way is at the core of the ownership and the heart of the business we do.
In carrying with the spirit of heritage, we’re committed to exceptional service and results, while coupled with the Pacific Northwest’s most prestigious Real Estate brand. Excellence is who we are, at our core.
We are rooted in this community and excited to serve you and all your real estate needs. Our Brokers are proud to be serving our clients and grateful to be the pillar of choice with their real estate investments. Looking to buy or sell? We’ve got you covered. We're all in, for you.
It started with a dream. We founded Windermere Heritage on the idea that experienced brokers want a place that exudes professionalism and feels like family, and that a Brokerage can and should be different. We’re investing in our agents, because we care.
We believe that excellence is only attained through experience, which is why all our agents are full-time, dedicated professionals committed to real estate. We serve the most productive and thriving Brokers in the industry, so they can help you find your dream home.
