Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $600K in Bodega Bay, CA.
The Coastal Agents have a long history in Bodega Bay and it really shows. We were shown many homes in the area each having their own flavor. Not only did we get a feel for the area but John was straightforward and really knew each home we were shown. After getting to know us he directed us to the exact home we were looking for. The escrow process was clean and easy. Good communication was kept the whole time which made the whole process a joy. We were happy and would use them again.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.075M in Bodega Bay, CA.
Highly knowledgeable of the area with many years of experience. Very impressed with their knowledge of area builders/contractors. Great listeners, understood the qualities in the home we desired as well as our financial limits and delivered appropriate homes for consideration. This team went above and beyond our expectations with our financing when we had difficulty with our chosen lender.

Sold a home in 2012.
I have worked with John Chute for over 15 years. He sold me my house in Bodega Bay and then helped me sell it during a very down market. His partner, Steve Hecht, was also instrumental in the transaction and was masterful in his ability to handle the deal. Because of the market we had three different deals--two of which didn't "come through". John and Steve were brilliant at helping me through this process. I can not recommend them highly enough. They are honest and helpful and experienced and rock-solid in their strategic thinking and negotiations.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $1.35M in Bodega Bay, CA.
I have bought and sold 14 houses as my residence since 1974 in several states working with many succesful real estate agents with John being one of them. It is a pleasure for me to state that I would rank John as number one among these very good agents I worked with. I would recommend him without any reservations.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $850K in Bodega Bay, CA.
The Coastal Agent Team recently listed and sold my Bodega Harbour home. The experience was seamless. I was well informed every step of the way, and always felt that their goal was to make the process as smooth as possible for me.

My home was widely and skillfully marketed. Follow-up on every showing was timely and thorough, with prompt feedback. Not once did I feel that my property was not front and center.

The Coastal Agent Team exemplifies what every client wants: A high level of expertise, and genuine concern combined with professionality and availability. I recommend them without reservation.

We have purchased and sold many homes in California, and we have found Steve Hecht to be uniquely exceptional! We would highly recommend him because he is extremely knowledgable, helpful, honest, and responsive! Steve is an amazing professional and will make a special difference in your purchase or sale's experience! Whether purchasing or selling a home, it doesn't get any better than Steve Hecht.....he is the Best of the Best!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $725K in Bodega Bay, CA.
We worked through the home purchase process almost exclusively with Steve Hecht, although John Chute assisted us a few times as well.

Steve was honest and very responsive. He answered all our emails and phone calls promptly, always getting with the right answer. In our trips back and forth to see the property, he was available virtually every time we needed to connect with him. That he knew the home, neighborhood and housing market so well, allowed us to relax and enjoy the entire undertaking. Steve was always in touch with the lenders; there were never any surprises along the way.

We heartily recommend Steve to anyone wishing to buy a home. Thank you, Steve!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $275K in Bodega Bay, CA.
My husband and I have purchased a number of homes over the past 30 years and recently bought a second home in Bodega Bay. We've always wanted to have a vacation home at the ocean. After looking for approximately 6 months with the guidance of Steve Hecht, we found the home that met our needs. I can't say enough about Steve. Through the process, he was cognizant of our budget, where we wanted to buy and our time restraints. Steve is an exceptional realtor. In the future, we will buy another home in Bodega Bay and am looking forward to working with Steve again. Caroline Rohrer

Sold a home in 2011.
First rate, very skilled in negotiations with a broad understanding of the costal market. Also very generous with their time. I think we had 5-6 visits to the home each lasting 1-2 hours for inspections. Each time they met us with a smile, never hurried us and always stayed to the end making sure the sellers home was safe and secure.
