Charlene is an incredible broker by any measure. She helped us find exactly what we were looking for and then closed a complicated deal. Her ability to navigate the real estate market with acumen and grace is unparalleled. We have referred numerous friends to her since she helped us buy our home. All of them have found the perfect house for them. We cannot recommend her highly enough.

​Having met Charlene Schnall over 20 years ago, I am forever grateful for her expertise and patience in helping me find the perfect estate site for my current home. I can’t imagine working with or referring any other agent in the wine country. Charlene's vast knowledge and expertise of all parts of the wine country in addition to her professionalism and attention to detail put her in a league of her own. Charlene is honest, trustworthy and hardworking; which makes me know that when I choose to list or purchase a property with Charlene that I am assured that she has my best interest at stake and will go above and beyond to help me achieve my goal. Her connections with agents locally and throughout the SF bay area as well as her responsiveness and organization also contribute to why she is one of the areas top agents.

I first met Charlene when I moved from LA to Santa Rosa 25 years ago. She helped me purchase my first Sonoma County residence. Since then, I and several family members have used Charlene to buy and sell multiple properties all around Sonoma County. Charlene is the best. She’s patient, persistent, knowledgeable, and most of all works hard representing her clients. Besides, she has that New York accent.

​I’ve purchased two country properties with Charlene Schnall. Coming from San Francisco, you don’t understand how complicated country property can be. Charlene is an expert and I mean expert. From understanding financing, entitlements and easements, to issues with wells, septic systems, and building requirements, Charlene checks all the boxes. She is super responsive and well connected which makes the closing process run like a well oiled machine. She is as engaged on a $500,000 deal as a $5 million deal with the understanding that every client is important. I cannot recommend her enough and have referred her to several friends all of whom have had similar experiences. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give her a 12!

​“We’ve known Charlene Schnall for over 8 years and in that time she has helped us acquire 3 properties in Sonoma County. She has incredible patience in working with people, she is a great listener, and she is very intuitive as well. She has decades of experience in this market, and fully understands both rural and in town properties. All three of our properties are more rural, on septic, with wells, and various zoning and Charlene and her team impressed us with their knowledge, and with their incredible contact list for getting things done. It was amazing to me how many realtors (representing the sellers) didn’t understand the nuances of country and estate property. Several of our friends have worked with Charlene in acquiring property and we would highly recommend her to anyone.”

​I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Charlene Schnall for the last 11 years. Together we have identified and purchased five homes of various sizes and styles, including my current family home. Charlene is the only real estate professional I work with in Sonoma County and the only one I will likely ever work with. We routinely look at real estate together, as Charlene is able to understand my purpose and process and accommodates each transaction with care and accuracy. Each purchase has had a different significance for my family and I. Charlene has taken to time to get to know me, and process my vision and intentions, so that she is able to steward our time and efforts toward the effective and appropriate conclusion. Charlene has worked in Sonoma County for many years and has a deep network of professionals that she relies on in the real estate industry. This network has been fantastic to work with –making each purchase friendly, reasonable and efficient. Each person in this network regards Charlene very highly and enjoys working with her on any real estate transaction big or small, making real estate purchases what they should be, a fun and exciting experience! 
I highly recommend Charlene for any project she chooses to take on. I trust her with my largest investments and I am grateful to have her on my team.

​Charlene is unquestionably a top broker for Sotheby's Healdsburg. I have worked with her on several occasions, including the purchase of a home in Healdsburg. I have often recommended her to people wanting to move to this area. She is the consummate professional; knowledgeable about the area, buttoned-up on the transaction at all stages, and a good and caring individual.

​Charlene recently helped our family purchase a property in Healdsburg and I can’t say enough about her vast expertise and deft guidance. As “city folk” buying our first country property, we relied heavily on her knowledge to help navigate the new-to-us world of arborists, environmental scientists, soil reports, vineyard managers, well inspections and more. Charlene was patient as we figured out what we were looking for and her knowledge of the local market allowed us to be the first showing when the right property came up. Once we were in contract, working with reluctant sellers required a cool head and strategic thinking. Throughout the twist and turns, Charlene was a calm, steady presence and was always looking out for our best interests. I would absolutely use Charlene again or recommend her to any friends considering buying property in wine country! -- Kristin & Andre Pech, Healdsburg/San Francisco
