Team reviews

John Chute was of great assistance when we were looking at property in Bodega Bay. We live in Texas and John was great to work with from such a long distance. We did purchase a home in Bodega Bay and it was a pleasure working with John through-out the purchase and the re-model of the house. We love Bodega Bay and will defintely call on John with Coastal Agent again when we purchase another home in the area in the future.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $650K in Jenner, CA.

John Chute and Steve Hecht (the Coastal Agent team) handled the sale of my home in Jenner during what was personally a very difficult time for me. I found them always responsive, considerate, and willing to go the extra mile. Circumstances were such that I could not be present during the 6 months my home was listed with them. This meant they had to carry a much heavier load in terms of all things needing to be done to sell a house. They took on this extra work with amazing grace and good cheer and for this I am forever grateful to them.

I can without hesitation give Coast Agent my highest recommendation. Should you have a home to sell on the coast, this is your team! I am confident you will be as pleased with the result as I have been.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $600K in Bodega Bay, CA.

We were very pleased with The Coastal Agent Team's work in selling our home. They produced beautiful sales materials and were always responsive as each step of the process was taken. We would call them again to sell other real estate for us.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $950K in Bodega Bay, CA.

Steve Hecht made it easy to select the right house for us. He lets you do the deciding, but says the right thing at the right time. He provided clear instruction on what needed to be taken care of, and offered resources to call who were honest and very helpful. He followed up on all our requests and made good recommendations that were in our best interest. He let us get in when we could and also arranged a walk-through with the previous owners that was incredibly helpful. I could not be happier at how easily and smoothly this transaction transpired.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $575K in Bodega Bay, CA.

John and Steve were consistently helpful in the sale of our home including advice to technical issues such as easements, from our initial interview through closing of escrow. We found them always available and attentive to our needs. We chose them above other agents we had interviewed due to their high level of professionalism, their ability to listen to our needs and concerns, and their offering of options that enabled us to sell our home at the best price in a very timely manner.

We recommend John and Steve highly to other persons desiring to sell their home in our area.

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 in Carmet, Bodega Bay, CA 94923.

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.
