Team reviews

Steve Hecht and John Chute were terrific to work with. They were able to guide me through the process of getting the house ready for the market without being pushy, or aggressive. They were very considerate, patient, and able to deal with every aspect of the transaction from the listing to close. Pamela was who I was in touch with at their Sebastopol office. She was always willing to assist me, answer my questions, and was always very accommodating. The whole experience went extremely well. Steve and John know the coast very well and I would recommend anyone selling or buying in that area to definitely interview them in their decision making process of selecting a realtor to represent their interests.

Have worked with John for several years. He is both knowledgeable and professional and very good at staying in touch. He and Steve make an excellent team: the value of John's years in the business and the local knowledge and attention provided by Steve.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $975K in Bodega Bay, CA.

John and Steve were fantastic to work with throughout the process - no muss, no fuss - they just got the job done. This was a second house, so we really had to rely on them to make things happen on-site as we couldn't be there ourselves. We highly recommend them both.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Bodega Bay, CA.

John and Steve acted as our agents in listing and selling a vacation home. Both demonstrated an excellent knowledge of the local market. They were readily available through the selling process. Their advice on a selling price was reasonable and resulted in a quick sale near their recommended selling price. Throughout the selling process, they provided reasonable and consistent advice.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $950K in Bodega Bay, CA.

I worked with John Chute and his partner Steve Hecht in purchasing a property in Bodega Bay. I have purchased and sold properties in Africa, Europe and the USA. I can attest to the fact that they are the most responsive, informed and efficient real estate brokers I have had the pleasure of working with. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $850K in Bodega Bay, CA.

What an excellent experience to have dealt with John and Steve with the purchase of our new home at Bodega Bay! These gentlemen handled the details of our purchase at The Harbour while also orchestrating with our sale and move from Manhattan and seamlessly worked with our agent there to make our across country move a pleasant one. If only every transaction and experience in life could be this professionally and warmly handled. Thank you, John and Steve. Best Regards, Daniel and Bob

Above and beyond professional. Helpful in all phases and helpful sometimes in unexpected ways. When the issue of a possible shower pan leak came up he found a creative way to do an actual live test.

John and Steve did a tremendous job for us. We were very unfamiliar with the area. I very much value the expertise this team reflected during the entire process. I would highly recommend people work with this team due to their expertise, professionalism and patience
