Kira Meade
Mendo Sotheby's International Realty
About Kira

I have lived on the Mendocino Coast since 1995 and know in my heart there isn't a place I would rather live. Whether I'm driving down the road or going for a walk on the beach I always have a chance to enjoy the amazing scenery and wildlife. I love the small town charm and how friendly and helpful the people are here. I started in the Real Estate business in 1989 as an office manager. In 1997 I received my real estate license and began working for Coast Real Estate and in May of 2012 I received my Brokers license. My husband is a craftsman and a licensed building contractor which has helped me develop a keen eye for details and quality of construction. We completed building our first home together on a beautiful property in Fort Bragg. With my 24 years of experience in the Real Estate field I have developed my skills into a "Top Notch" Realtor. I pride myself in being open and honest, if I don't have all the answers I will find them for you! Selling property on the Mendocino Coast is rewarding in many ways – finding that perfect oceanfront or country property for a client, meeting new people and making long term friendships, not to mention being surrounded by the beauty of the ocean every day. My clients satisfaction and comfort with their real estate decision is very important to me. I want them to know I am available at all times, my services don't end at the close of the sale. As a native Californian I have realized the Mendocino Coast is a very unique place to live. It is no wonder that people who could live anywhere in the world choose to live here.

Sarah Schoeneman
Mendo Sotheby's International Realty
About Sarah

A native of Piedmont, California, I attended college in Chico and spent the first seven years following graduation working in marketing with a specialty in aging demographics. But, having grown up as the daughter of a real estate developer, this business is in my blood; you could say that I was raised on "brick and mortar." In 1995, I began my career as a Real Estate Agent with Elmwood Realty & Investments in Berkeley — mastering the art of both residential and investment sales — in the highly regulated Bay Area communities. I haven't looked back since. My talents were recognized when, in 2005, I was offered the opportunity to become the owner of Elmwood Realty. After a number of successful years, I met my husband (owner of the Brewery Gulch Inn), sold my Berkeley brokerage to San Francisco based McGuire Real Estate and relocated to the beautiful Coastal Mendocino and re-started what I love doing most: buying and selling properties for my clients. I just celebrated my 5-year anniversary with living on the coast and working with Mendo Realty. Within a relatively short period of time, I successfully completed an impressive list of sales for my clients. I am a big believer in presenting my listings to their greatest advantage and this is why I always use professional photography. In today's market, our buyers are primarily coming from out-of-area and you must present in its best light. In addition to real estate, I am also involved in my family's vineyard in the Anderson Valley. I enjoy performing the duties of a "vineyard ambassador" for wineries that we sell grapes to. In 2012 my husband, father, step-daughter, daughter, and I embarked on a multi-generational adventure and started our own wine label, Fathers and Daughters Cellars — exploring three of the best things in life: fathers, daughters, and wine.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Mendocino?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Mendocino?

A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase.

Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Mendocino?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
