Everything You Need to know About Icon Real Estate Group



Rita Verdugo - Principal Broker with ICON Real Estate Group Springfield Board of REALTORS® - 2022 President Certified in GRI, ABR, SRES, MRP, RENE, E-Pro
My real estate career first began in 1999 with MGM Realty while living in Sunnyvale, California. I was privileged to be mentored by an amazing principal broker who trained me in all areas of real estate, professionalism, and to always put my clients needs first. In early 2003 my husband and I decided to move to Oregon to raise our growing family. We were attracted to the beautiful state and the healthy, grounded lifestyle it offered. Upon moving to Oregon, I followed my heart and enrolled into the University of Oregon, where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in General Social Sciences with a focus on business, and a minor in Folklore. After graduating with a 3.75 GPA, I decided to get back into the real estate world!

I am currently a broker with ICON Real Estate Group in the Eugene and Springfield areas. My continuous dedication to learning, attention to detail, and self-improvement ensures that I will take care of my clients every step of the way. Integrity and honesty are what is most important to me and I make sure that those two things are the foundation of my relationship with all my buyers and sellers. I am passionate about my local community, and considers it an honor to be able to connect aspiring families and homebuyers to the best properties in the area.

When I am not focused on turning homeowner dreams into a reality, I volunteer on the Springfield Board of REALTORS® and Oregon REALTORS®. This has allowed me to be an advocate for my clients and my community. Volunteering has allowed me to serve on several committees dedicated to improving the lives of children in my local community and homeowners statewide. This is a labor of love, and I am grateful for the opportunity to be of service in this way.


Born & raised in Silicon Valley, I learned many cultures & lived a diverse, fast paced lifestyle.
In 2002 I moved to the Eugene – Springfield area with my wife and first child with the Northwest Wilds in our hearts, the adventure of new beginnings in our eyes.
Twenty years later we know the rich community in our area and have explored the many diverse regions our great state has to offer.
With 25 years of customer service and project management under my belt, I am wired for problem solving and have confidence in planning and anticipating challenges.
Being a Real Estate Broker, I use my comfort in handling issues as a guide to provide my clients with a calm professional approach to ensure that together we get the best results possible in every contract.
I stay connected by participating in my local brewing community, wildcrafting such as mushroom hunting, Realtor events, brewing, golfing, and cooking, experiencing Oregon with my wife of 24 years and hanging out with my beautiful kids.
