"I was in Real Estate in the West Los Angeles area for over 15 years, and Kaaren is by far, the BEST broker I have ever met. Her dedication to clients and willingness to go the EXTRA mile to insure a client's needs are met, is beyond compare. I have recommended Kaaren to many friends over the years, and not one has ever voiced a word of dissatisfaction with her professionalism and services. She has an amazing knowledge of property details for Northern Sonoma County. We bought our home from her 24 years ago, and are now employing Kaaren to sell this beautiful home we have so happily lived in, and we will look to her to help us find out next home. I can't say enough good things about Kaaren Atkin."
"My husband and I were very please to work with Kaaren. She is a broker who brings a wealth of knowledge in the area of Healdsburg and surrounding neighborhoods. Her honesty and integrity, reasonableness in what can be a stressful time is what we needed. We were under a timeline that was quite intense and Kaaren kept us on track, succeeding in obtaining our new home and we are so please."
Thank you Kaaren!

Kaaren Atkin helped us locate and purchase our first vineyard property. It was a new adventure for us and the process was managed flawlessly by Kaaren.
We loved the wine country and decided to upgrade. We listed our 14 acre property with Kaaren and within several months she sold it without any issues.
With Kaaren's assistance we found a 50 acre vineyard that included several old buildings. This was a more complicated purchase but with Kaaren's knowledge and follow through the purchase was completed without any problems.
We decided to divide our 50 acre property into two parcels and then sell one of them. Kaaren was a major help in putting all of the pieces together. She then sold the new parcel. Again, no issues.
After 25 years in the wine country we decided it was time to simplify our lives. We asked Kaaren to find us a buyer. A different and challenging task as our 25 acres now included a 3 bedroom 2 bath rental home, a car barn and home winemaking building, 18 acres of top quality wine grapes, a couple of wells, a 10K gallon water tank, and a 4500 square foot main residence. Numerous showings, constant communications, nurturing many steps through escrow and complicated paperwork, Kaaren made it happen.
Thank you, Kaaren for all that you have done for us,

I have bought and sold property on both coasts, in cities and in the country, and Kaaren Atkin is the best agent I have ever worked with. Here in Sonoma County, Kaaren has represented me through several real estate transactions over the past decade. A twenty year veteran, Kaaren’s expertise transacting in-town property, ranches, wineries, and vineyard property is unparalleled. She works gracefully through complexities and conflict, with impeccable ethical standards. Kaaren isn’t content just to meet the needs of her clients, but brings with her a vast network of contractors and consultants to aid the buyer, even after escrow is closed. There is no one I trust more to represent my best interests.

I've worked with Kaaren on multiple property transactions over the past 18 years. In every situation, she has handled herself very professionally. I can trust her to be thorough in her work and to get things done. She has provided me sound advice, even in challenging markets. Kaaren has been a strong advocate for me when representing my interests in negotiations. She is well connected and well respected among her peers. It has been a pleasure working with Kaaren, and I wholeheartedly recommend her to others.

Kaaren Atkin has handled my real estate transactions for the past eight years. She has successfully closed 5 separate transactions during that time. Several of them had situations arise that I did not foresee. It made me truly appreciate having a seasoned pro on my side during these difficult situations. There are so many realtors out there, but until you encounter a problem or challenge with your deal, you do not realize the vast difference a GREAT realtor makes.
Her depth of knowledge of issues affecting country property and development is invaluable. When I was purchasing vineyard property she guided me through the complicated points of utility easements, water issues, septic, access and all the aspects of vineyard development. Above all, the biggest reason I keep coming back is she is unquestionably a person of integrity. She is authentic and respectful with all she comes in contact with. She is focused, extremely hard working with a willingness to listen and understand. Kaaren understands good relationships create good business. Nobody does it better!

Kaaren Atkin is a pro - pure and simple. She is experienced and highly knowledgeable about properties and property values in the Healdsburg/Windsor/Santa Rosa area. In our case, we were contemplating a major move from the Midwest to Healdsburg. We knew no one and had only a limited understanding of property values and the impact of location. Its speaks to Kaaren's expertise that the first house she showed us was the house we bought - about 5 hours later. She provided us with the right local resources - gardener, contractor, painter and introduced us, as part of her welcome package, to Shelton's (formerly Anstead's) delicious vegetarian panini. She was there when we had questions long after the sale. We knew we had a friend we could count on in any pinch. Most importantly - we bought a fabulous house at a great price.
