Rhonda Alderman
Keller Williams Realty
About Rhonda

Hello! Thank you for considering my profile. Choosing the right agent can seem daunting and I hope to make it a smooth process. I have been a licensed Realtor in Sonoma County for 20 years, now as a Broker-Associate and have extensive experience and results negotiating on behalf of my clients to help them achieve the the best price and terms. I also use top-notch cutting edge marketing to show your home in the best possible light online and in print. I am a small team, consisting of myself and a fabulous administrative staff that supports me and my clients. I've helped many homeowners transition and downsize from a larger home into something smaller and remain in the area, while others have chosen to move out of California completely. I have many resources to share with you from moving/boxing, organizing, staging, repairs, inspections and partnering agents working in other States across the US. I've been incredibly blessed to work as a Realtor in Sonoma County for almost 20 years and have met and helped so many beautiful people along the way with buying or selling real estate. With computers and websites such as Zillow, Redfin etc., it's easy to plug in our address and find out an "approximate range of value" for our home. Computers however aren't people (yet) and these systems are not able to recognize important factors such as upgrades you may have done, condition of the home, lot improvements and positioning of your home compared to others in the neighborhood. There are so many things that go into a proper price evaluation. I am here to help you in determining the optimal possible value for your home with a proven strategy to help you achieve it. Also as an Accredited Staging Professional, I am passionate in helping my clients with staging ideas and getting their home ready to show and sell for top dollar. Looking forward in connecting! All my best, Rhonda Alderman

Frequently Asked Questions

What does a top real estate agent do?

Read more
What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Occidental?
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.
Read more
How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Occidental?
Our data shows that the top 5% of listing agents sell homes for as much as (+9%) more than the average real estate agent. 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. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters. We encourage you to connect with a top real estate agent if you’re buying or selling a home in Occidental, CA.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Occidental?
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.
Read more
What is the average real estate agent commission for agents in Occidental?
While individual real estate agent commissions do vary, most real estate agents in Occidental work for 6% of the home price.
Why should I use HomeLight to find a Occidental real estate agent?
