Consistently recognized in Sonoma County as top producing agents, Alain and I have built our business as Healdsburg Realtors on two principals - commitment and connections.
Both Alain and I have been a part of the of the Healdsburg community for over 25+ years. We love the people, organizations, local shops, eateries and wineries that make up our small city that we are so fortunate to call “home”. Working in a unique environment such as Healdsburg requires personal knowledge of the real estate market and a keen sense of the land, lifestyles, and future development of the area. We know what it takes to get the job done by taking the data, analyzing it, and figuring out the best way to help people sell and buy a property.
Currently, we are experiencing an exciting market with continued high average home prices and low inventory and a multitude of buyers. Due in part to the heavy amount of wet weather we have received this year, the real estate selling season, (which usually starts around March 15 with the arrival of spring) has been slow to “start”. However, the few properties that are on the market and priced well are selling quickly and continue to climb in value.
Fortunately, the water shortages and drought of the last several years has alleviated, creating a more optimistic outlook about the future of our land, home, and overall investments. I find Healdsburg with its diverse array of real estate and topography to be a vibrant area to practice real estate. Alain and I strive to provide superior market expertise and we are both passionate about our work, regardless of price point or location. Our attention to detail throughout every transaction is our primary focus for every seller and buyer we represent.
I grew up in a home where my father was a real estate broker in New York City and later in San Francisco. Real estate was his driving force and I have inherited this same passion. Alain comes from an extensive background in European hotel and winery management, and a has a talent for buying homes, renovating them into something on the edge of sublime and then selling them.
Part of being from a close-knit community such as Healdsburg is keeping an open door. Our private offices on North Street, just across the street from the Raven Theater, can on occasion be compared to a sidewalk cafe in downtown Paris. Most of our current and past clients become our friends and drop by for a visit or just to relay a funny story shared between friends. This keeps us connected to our clients and the community as a whole, and it is this congenial atmosphere that we extend to everyone we meet. We are available to all our clients seven days a week and we utilize cutting edge technologies to find the right property or the right buyer for our clients.
Our partnership with Artisan Sotheby’s International Realty over the past 20 years has enabled us to provide our clients with a “one-stop shopping” real estate service experience. Our approach includes navigating buyers through the market, assisting sellers in preparing their property for sale, and connecting our clients, when necessary, with an extensive list of key professionals in the area as well as the renowned Sotheby's International Realty global network. Our real estate marketing is unique. We expend the necessary effort and reach to be certain each property has the maximum exposure possible to buyers and sellers. This is a multi-faceted effort, and we implement the best practices in real estate marketing available.
We capitalize on our business relationships in the real estate community and in the Bay Area. Whether a client is found among existing Sonoma County or greater Bay Area residents, through corporate transfers, or from a vast network of top Sotheby’s International Realty agents, we often find buyers for properties prior to going on the market through our cooperation with other agents.
Our personal integrity and commitment to success throughout the entire real estate transaction is the key to our clients’ satisfaction and to closing a real estate transaction.
When it comes down to it we enjoy what we do and we are really very good at it.
