Thanks for making this the simplest and best real estate transaction of our lives!

Sara Fowler was the perfect agent to help us sell our property of over 30 years in Anderson Valley. Her patience, wisdom and guidance made a potentially difficult and emotionally fraught experience quick and easy. We had complete trust and confidence in her. My only complaint is that the sale went SO quickly, that it was a struggle to pack up fast enough to leave. I recommend her to anyone wanting to sell (or buy) property.
Joy L. of Boulder, CO. (Sold in Navarro)
Sara helped us find the right place to live. She was patient, listened well, and asked good questions. When we did find the right place she was an excellent advocate for us through a difficult escrow. She repeatedly went to extraordinary lengths to help us find ways around roadblocks during the purchase of our first home. We can’t imagine how we would have done it without her assistance. We would strongly recommend her to our family and friends.
Eric & Cindy A. of Philo (Bought in Philo)
My son Sean and I came upon the offices of Coast Realty by sheer happenstance, and it turned out to be a momentous event in our lives. We were lucky to meet its real estate agent, Sara Fowler, who was instrumental in turning our dream into reality. We couldn't have met a better person to guide us all throughout the whole process of looking for and buying the property that suits our needs. Sara was very attuned to our quest and desires. From start to finish she worked tirelessly and diligently at providing us all the relevant information on every one of the sites and properties visited in a very thorough and professional way. Aside from being very knowledgeable in her field, Sara is a gracious, friendly, and dedicated person whose guidance and expert advice we benefited from. We were extremely pleased with the outcome of our search which resulted in the purchase of our property. "We want to say to you, Sara, that we sincerely thank you for all your efforts and wonderful disposition, we wish you well and continued success in your work.
Victoire & Sean of Chicago, IL (Bought in Navarro)
I have had the pleasure of working with Sara Fowler for two real estate transactions in the past 10 years and have been 100% satisfied with her exceptional service. She has lived and managed real estate transactions in the Mendocino area for decades and is an expert on properties there. Sara is highly professional yet also very personable. She assumes responsibility for the millions of details that a purchase and sale require, and never lets things slip through the cracks. She is able to make transactions happen from a distance using scanned documents and digital communication. The most recent sale Sara did for me couldn't have gone more smoothly and effortlessly for me. I always felt confident that she had things under control, and had my interests expertly represented.

We want to thank you for being so very considerate, thoughtful and kind. We didn’t know there were Realtors like you! It’s been a joy knowing you.
Maury and Bernadine T. of Vacaville,CA (Sold in Philo)
Sara was steadfast and effective, not only in finding a buyer for the house but also in helping close an escrow that easily could have failed owing to the parties' needs and circumstances. She is good at tactfully applying pressure and facilitating compromises that are fair to both sides of the transaction. I respect her knowledge of the local real estate market, her realism and her low-keyed tenacity.
Donald L. of Sebastol, CA. (Sold in Navarro)
Sara is wonderful. Buying a house is one thing; buying a home is so much more. She considered my desires and my financial ability and helped me find the place that fit well. I never felt pressured to look at any place I couldn't afford, or to have to buy anything just because we were looking. Sara is honest, helpful, understanding and infinitely patient with the idiosyncrasies of real estate transactions. She's a warm and sincere person...if you want a pleasant, successful experience, I highly recommend Sara. As I said, she is great!
Morning H. of Fort Bragg (Bought in Fort Bragg)
I have been involved in a number of real estate transactions and never enjoyed the process, mainly due to the high pressure techniques of the agents. Sara listened to what I had to say and found exactly the sort of property that I wanted in the price range we discussed. She is not your typical real estate agent.
Marc C. of Austin, TX (Bought in Navarro)
My father died..…and my brother and I, very sadly, decided we had to sell our family property in Anderson Valley. With me in the Netherlands and my brother in Albuquerque it was the only realistic option. A friend of ours recommended Sara Fowler, and we’re awfully glad she did! Although ours was an almost perfect piece of property (woods, flat, stream, etc) and we got an offer almost immediately, it was not an easy sale, with both my brother and me at a distance and some last minute problems with the buyer’s financing; but throughout Sara was right on top of things. Her shrewd initial appraisal meant that we got nearly twice for it what we (in our ignorance) would otherwise have asked; she was prompt, clear and comprehensive in explaining everything to us; her constant supervision prevented things from going off the rails; and a terrific burst of energy from her during the last week enabled it to be wrapped up safely. We owe her a lot, and would recommend her without reservation to anyone.
Kathy L. of The Netherlands. (sold in Philo)
Let it be known that we found Sara to be a refreshingly relaxed, honest, and never "pushy" agent, as well as having an intimate knowledge of the area. She is a "real" person, and we would sincerely recommend choosing her to deal with any day!
Tom M. & Sula N. of Big Sur and Fiji (bought in Navarro, sold in Mendocino & Navarro)
In the summer of 2002 we found ourselves in the position of realizing a long held dream to own property in Anderson Valley. We called a friend in the Valley, a retired Real Estate agent, and asked for his advice and a referral. He gave us Sara’s name and stated “Sara is the only one in the Valley I would do business with.” It turned out to be a great connection. Sara has all the attributes of a great person, a great agent. She listens, she is tenacious, she follows through and above all else is ethical. We were lucky enough to find a property we fell in love with very quickly because Sara did a great investigative job (the listing was not widely known about.) The transaction was a little tricky because the sellers were not prepared for the sale, and she followed through at every step to see that the sale reached a positive conclusion. The sellers were so impressed with Sara that they later asked her to be a selling Agent for them in another sale. We would recommend Sara to anyone, and she is the only Agent we would work with.
Doug and Linda L of San Francisco (Bought in Philo)
Sara was a pleasure to work with as our agent when we bought our place in Anderson Valley. After meeting with Sara and describing what we wanted she helped us find and buy a place that we truly love. Sara called us the day before our property was officially listed (by another real estate firm). We viewed it and submitted an offer the following day. I believe if it wasn’t for Sara’s diligence and quick action it is possible that we might of missed our chance at a great property. Besides her quickness in responding when our property came to her attention, she displayed a thorough knowledge of the various “neighborhoods” and “micro-communities” that make up the Valley and solid transaction related skills. We enthusiastically recommend Sara to anyone considering buying or selling in Anderson Valley.
Ralph and Catherine W., Orinda, CA. (Bought in Philo)
Sara was willing to spend extra time working for and with me to find a new home. She was always personable and patient. If I need help in the future, I will call her again.

A few years back I was in the market for a house but had a fairly low budget. I initially went to the big guns, who as much as laughed in my face and told me to get a life. Suffice it to say, I didn’t look at many houses. Then I met Sara Fowler at Coast Real Estate. She listened to my needs, then rolled up her sleeves and went to work for me., Within two weeks, I’d looked at four homes that were not only in my price range but were the kind of properties I had in mind. I was mulling over my options when she called to say she had a house in Albion which she thought I’d really like. The minute we drove in the driveway, my entire being shouted, “I’m home!” She suggested an offer, which was accepted, and made the paperwork and closing a breeze. Although I purchased my home nearly six years ago, Sara has never left me. She’s gone way beyond the usual agent’s view of a sale and is always available to answer my questions and help me make decisions. I highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking an informed, reliable and honest agent who’s willing to bend over backwards to help her clients find and/or sell property.
Lucinda B. of Albion.
I wanted to take a moment to let you know how much I appreciate all of the work you did in selling my mother’s house for my sisters and me after Mom passed away. It was a tough situation that took many twists and turns, but your patience and understanding got us all through it. I felt as thought I had my own personal real estate agent in you, Sara, although I know you make all your clients feel that way. You make it look so easy, although I know that what you do takes drive, determination, dedication, and a vast knowledge of this ever-changing market. Most sincerely....
Robb R. of Little River (sold in Little River)
Just want to let you know how much Jeff and I appreciate all that you have done for us. What I loved about you is that I never felt pressure, like you get with some realtors or used car salesmen. You gave us a bunch of listings and then let us come back to you. Which is exactly what we wanted. We found the two we wanted to look at and you were able to let us see them the next day. Jeff and I would not have bought a home from you if we felt any pressure. You are very professional and personable, I felt like I could ask you any question no matter how strange it was. You are very thorough and explained every step of the process. You worked hard for us, we felt very comfortable in your capable hands. We would definitely recommend you for any one that is looking for a home on the Coast. Wish we could use you to help sell a relative’s house up North. Thank you.
Sherri and Jeff F. of Rocklin (Bought in Little River)
…Sara. You have been just a great advocate for Lucy and me and so helpful throughout this process. We would not have any hesitation referring any friends or acquaintances to you who might be looking for a realtor out your way so you never know! Again, many thanks for your professionalism and for helping us along the way.
