Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Bodega Bay, CA.
We recently sold our vacation home in Bodega Bay, Ca. since we moved out of State. We retained the services of Dennis and Kathleen Erba and it was the best decision we made. They were extremely professional and helpful and our entire experience was rather pleasant. They were always available to answer our questions and promptly returned our telephone calls regardless of the time and day.
We unhesitatingly recommend them.

Dennis Erba, Realtor May22, 2013
Subject: Letter of Recommendation
To Whom It May Concern:
We write this letter of recommendation to extol the virtues of a great Realtor, Dennis Erba, of Coldwell Banker Realty in Bodega Bay. This is an unusual letter of recommendation because most are written by clients for whom a Realtor successfully completes a transaction. That is not our case. We ultimately did not purchase a home on the Sonoma Coast area. However, we searched extensively for the home of our dreams with the help of Dennis Erba .
Throughout the process, Dennis was attentive to our very specific stated criteria. He listened carefully to our critiques of various homes on the market and took into consideration our input as to what we were looking for and what we did not want. This is crucial to a good working relationship with a Realtor when you are a prospective purchaser. As a result, we felt extremely comfortable working with Dennis. He informed us about homes of potential interest and did not pester us with homes that were not of interest. And he never "pushed" us to purchase homes that we found -- after investigation -- were not of interest. In fact, even when we were in escrow ("under contract") he did not push us to conclude a transaction that was not in our interests.
In the end, we chose not to purchase a vacation home on the Sonoma Coast. Dennis was fully understanding and entirely professional, even though he had spent significant time assisting us in touring numerous Sonoma Coast properties (both in the Bodega Bay area and up in Sea Ranch). He was fully supportive and assisted us in dealing with a difficult Seller and Seller's agent in recovering our earnest money deposit.
As a result of our experience with Dennis, we highly recommend him to anyone seeking to purchase a home in the Sonoma Coast area.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $1.2M in Bodega Bay, CA.
Kathleen & Dennis helped us purchase a home in Bodega Bay. They are pleasant, personable and professional. We would use them again, either in selling or purchasing another home! They went out of their way to obtain a key from the sellers for the house, since it had just gone on the market. They knew the market very well and found us exactly what we were looking for. We were able to complete all necessary purchase papers; eventhough I was in Hawaii and my husband was in Reno! They even had to work with our daughter and a friend for the final walk-through. We can't say enough good about them.
Showed home in 2004 in Carmet, Bodega Bay, CA 94923.
We bought our current home in Bodega Bay from Dennis and Kathleen in 2004. They were very helpful and professional, showing us several homes of interest to us and working to find one which met our needs, and then following up through the closing. We highly recommend them.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $925K in Bodega Bay, CA.
Dennis and Kathleen are warm and genuine people -- not slick like many real estate brokers. They are very knowledgeable about the Sonoma Coast and the properties there, but they never go for the hard sell. They are responsive, patient and friendly. It's a pleasure working with them.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $600K in Bodega Bay, CA.
an overall good experience, as low key as buying a house can be.
Dennis was available to answer questions throughout the process. We were very happy to work with him and benefit from the fact that he was 'local'
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.025M in Bodega Bay, CA.
Absolutely terrific experience from first contact to the close of escrow - and beyond. They have extensive knowledge of the area and detailed knowledge and histories of a great many of the properties that come on the market. They were very patient and thoughtful as we went through the "looking" phase and quick to mobilize when we decided to pursue a deal. Absolutely top notch service and it was a real pleasure to work with Dennis and Kathleen. I highly recommend them to anyone considering the purchase or sale of property on the Sonoma Coast.
