Hello, and welcome! I’m Ron L. Welsh, the Broker/Owner of Sonoma County Properties, and we provide seven generations of buying and selling Sonoma County real estate! We’ve been assisting buyers and sellers throughout Sonoma and Marin counties for nearly 30 years, and we’re experienced in all aspects of residential, commercial, investment, ranch, and vineyard properties. We also specialize in 1030 tax-deferred exchanges. We’ve helped thousands of people buy their first homes, sell a home, move up to their dream homes, downsize, settle an estate, avoid foreclosure through strategic short sales, buy and sell property for vineyards or horses, buy and sell income properties through 1031 exchanges, and secure their financial future with the right real estate investments. There’s nothing we haven’t done or can’t do! We’re members of the North Bay Area, California, and National Associations of REALTORS®, the Council of Residential Specialists, and the Russian River Valley Winegrowers Association.
