Big River Realty
was founded on hard work, honesty, and honor. We believe that individuals and their lives are the most important factor in our work. We understand that the service that we provide interfaces with what is often one of the biggest decisions people will make in their lifetime. Using our expertise in real estate, we protect our clients by educating them as we navigate the negotiating process of buying or selling their home or property.

The associates of Big River Realty believe that our community is the perfect place to live. It is a place where a quick trip to the post office or the store can turn into a social outing. A place where anonymous donors give scholarships to meriting students and financial support to those in need. A place where an appreciation of the beauty around us is a constant reminder of how fortunate we are to call the coast our home. Thus, we approach our work with a commitment to integrity and the traditions of honor that are cherished in thriving, small communities as those along the Mendocino Coast.

    The Mendocino Coast's unduplicated and stunning geography along with its comfortable climate have been a lure for a remarkable type of migrant. For years, this amazing area has been transforming from its fishing and logging heritage to a more 'standard of living' oriented society.

    Today, the area offers residents a safe and unhurried lifestyle, while its distinctive businesses provide all of the necessities for this unique existence.

    We were truly lucky to have David of Big River Realty help us with selling my late mother's property. David was so sensitive to our situation, yet so very helpful in all practical matters. He had a name and number for any work that needed to be done; he listened attentively to our thoughts and questions, then provided wise and concrete answers. We got our property sold quickly, at the price we wanted, with ease and satisfaction.

    David and his office staff did a great job helping me make decisions by always presenting accurate information and plausible options to consider. My phone calls and emails were always responded to in a timely fashion. David is a great communicator and a very knowledgeable Realtor, especially regarding the Mendocino County coast. I'm very pleased that I chose to have my house listed with David.

    Tracy was an absolute pleasure to work with and did her job skillfully, getting us the property we wanted at a great price. One thing we liked most about Tracy was her responsiveness. We bought land in the coastal zone, which comes with all sorts of legal hurdles to understand before you build. She helped us navigate those hurdles in a timely manner, both known and the ones that popped up in escrow, to ultimately get us to a place where we were 100% comfortable and excited that this was the piece of land for us. Would highly recommend working with Tracy!

    I didn't think twice when I needed a Realtor to sell my house. Big River Realty has the reputation and the quality agents that let me move to the next step without hesitation. Their guidance and professionalism made it easy.

    Claire is a diligent realtor who gets things done. She asked good questions and found good answers for me. She's a delightful personality, but is all business when she needs to be. She knows the coast and she knows the value of things. She was easy to work with and I wouldn't hesitate to work with her again.

    - J.H.

    Very professional and conscientious Realtor. Listed our house in as many places as possible. Always in contact with us letting us know when he showed it and what questions or concerns people had. I would highly recommend Scott to anyone who is selling any real estate.

    - J&SP

    Claire handled the sale of our house with expertise and professionalism. She staged our interiors beautifully, found the perfect buyer so we knew we were leaving our home in good hands, sold the property for *ka-ching* more than we were asking, and processed the long-distance closing quickly and painlessly. We couldn't have been more satisfied.

    Tracy Wolfson made buying my home so easy. She was knowledgable, friendly, efficient, super responsive, all the things you would want in a great real estate agent.

    Tracy's connection to the Mendocino Coast comes from living in the community for many decades. It provided us the first looks at many new listings. Her expertise and support made the experience understandable and smooth. She is sweet and professional, we wouldn't have our beautiful forever home without her. I highly recommend her services!

    - PPW

    Based on our experience, we cannot recommend Tracy more! We were not local to the area, so we relied on Tracy to do a lot of legwork on our behalf. She really went above and beyond. She was very responsive whenever we had questions and gave us great advice about the area including recommendations on local contractors. We are so thankful that we found such a professional and well qualified realtor to help us through our many questions. When we ultimately made an offer she was there every step of the way to help us through the process. Thanks Tracy!

    When we decided to look for our dream home on the Mendocino Coast, we turned to Big River Realty and their agent, Claire Amanno. Claire was relatively new to the realty game, but she demonstrated right away that she was a fast learner and definitely up to the task. She showed us five or six homes in very short order and even gave up her holidays to help us. She was very thorough and perceptive in the negotiation process and we ended up finding the best home we could have hoped for that met all of the criteria for our needs. I wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend Claire for anyone seeking to buy or sell a home on the Mendocino Coast!

    - JS&NH

    Tracy provided us with expert help in selling our long time, long term rental house. She gave us advice in making several improvements to the property prior to listing which made a huge beneficial impact on our asking price. We were able to sell our property quickly which was very important to us. Tracy treated us like her most important clients thorough out the entire listing and escrow process. She is a long time resident on the Mendocino Coast so she understands the unique real estate market better than most. If we could give her 10 stars instead of 5 we would. We highly recommend Tracy

    I began looking for a home in the Northern California Coastal area in late 2018. I worked with about 4 different agents during that time, from different agencies. Though they were always very pleasant to work with, I never felt as if I was a priority for them except for Claire Amanno at Big River Realty.
    Claire made me feel comfortable from the beginning. She showed me homes that I wanted to see, suggested some that were not within my radar but was never pushy about any of them. Claire always gave me advice on properties both good and bad.
    I'm a very picky client and I looked at many, many homes. Claire was always willing to show me whatever I wanted to see, on my timeline. She was always available when I needed her, rearranging her schedule to accommodate me.
    During closing, Claire was right there with me (even though I was 4 hours away). She handled all the difficult problems without a blink. After I moved in Claire made sure that all the issues I had were addressed in a timely fashion, introduced me to contractors and offered assistance if I needed it.
    The entire process became much simpler because of Claire. I would recommend Claire Amanno at Big River Realty to anyone looking for a home.

    We had a great experience with Claire as our representative while searching long-distance for a house on the Mendocino Coast. She was warm and enthusiastic and really generous with her time and attention during our two trips to the coast before we found a house we love. I appreciated her sense of humor as well as her efficiency and would definitely seek her services if I needed to buy or sell property in Mendocino.
