20 Years of Wine Country & Horses

20 Years of Wine Country & Horses

In June 2003 I founded my real estate practice after leaving Silicon Valley and moving to my own horse property. A mutual friend introduced me to Betsy Bueno, running a fledgling horse rescue out of her tract home, stringing 11 garden hoses down the block to leased pastureland. She had tried for 2 years to find the true home for her horse rescue.

By the end of September, we had sold her home and simultaneously closed on her new farm. Neither of us knew where the next years would take us. Betsy incorporated Lost Hearts and Souls Horse Rescue as a charity, saving many lives along the way. I developed a successful real estate practice based upon putting my clients’ goals first and generating repeat and referral business. It’s amazing how one decision can kick off a chain of events that impacts so many lives in unexpected ways.

Thanks to the support of our amazing Sonoma County equine community, I’ve had the opportunity to represent all types of buyers and sellers. Trust me when I say horse property is a ‘different animal.’ It demands an agent who knows how to market your home to horse and non-horse people alike, as well as speak the language of horse owners and riders.

If you’re looking for a horse property or have one to list in 2024 (or both), please give me a call to see how I can help!
