About Sonoma.Net and Dave Roberts

dave-in-suit-square-180I started Sonoma.net in 1995 as a pioneering web design and marketing company. We had a lot of fun and along the way created an early social network at seniors.com and blazed a painful trail through the early e-commerce forest. This sonoma.net site began as a directory and community site serving all of Sonoma County.

Times change and Google, Yelp, and other sites have done a great job making it easier to find businesses and other services you are looking for.

I have shifted the site focus to Sonoma County real estate. It was an easy decision. I love Sonoma County, one of the most beautiful and friendly places I have ever been. I love the landscape and the traditional farmhouses, Victorians, cabins, and barns that dot our vineyards and forests.  As a real estate agent with Healdsburg Sotheby’s International Realty, most of my current listings are for acreage in the Healdsburg area and that’s where I spend most of my time.

However, a big part of my business is representing buyers.  They steer me in ways that are often unexpected,  so when they find a site they love in Napa County or in Bodega Bay, I’m there to help them.  A typical client relationship  starts with multiple site visits to potential purchases. If the real estate angels are smiling on us, the site visits turn into contracts, inspections, and dealings with lenders, appraisers, title companies, and the whole host of people that touch each transaction. My job is to make that process uneventful.

I’m always looking for smart buyers who want to be part of Sonoma County’s future.

  1. Hi Dave,

    My name is Brian Requarth and I am from Sebastopol, but I after I graduated from college I took a trip to Bogotá, Colombia (mostly by car) and decided to set up shop down here. I go back on occasion to visit my parents and friends in Sonoma County.

    I just spent a while reading your AR blog. I really got a kick out of your localism posting about the listings for Paris Hilton. About two months ago I got off the blogging sidelines and decided to jump into the game. I have learned a lot.

    Anyways, I just wanted give you a “virtual shout” because reading your blog really makes me think about what a cool place Sonoma County is, especially the people. You seem like the kind of guy that I would want to have a beer with at the Sebastopol brewing company sometime.

    All the best,
