Experienced in Short Sale
I'm a proud mother of three beautiful teenagers. One has just left the next and is now attending UC Davis so I'm working hard to beat the empty nest blues. I've just relocated to Cloverdale where I''m living with my youngest son, Matt and a few miles from my oldest son Mark. Both are thriving here in this lush bedroom community at the Northern tip of Sonoma County, just below Mendocino County and Lake County, my home away from home. I lived in Lake County for seven years where I launched a successful real estate career built on compassion and an intense desire to help solve our current market crisis one home owner at a time.
I enjoy running immensely and when my son Matt announced he was going to be on the cross country team for Cloverdale High School I decided to move my home base to him. After all, I love driving the Hopland Grade into Lakeport in gorgeous Lake County and it's only an hour commute. There is virtually no traffic. Lake County offers Clear Lake, a bass fisherman's choice in California, stunning panoramic views and a sunny climate with about 10 days a year reaching 110's and 10 more slipping into the 20's. I loved the sun there and I loved running with my friends. But there was one run that beat them all and that was with my son Matt at the Lake County Park on Soda Bay. I decided then that I would move when Rebecca went off to University on September 17, 2011.
I know most of Sonoma County and have lived in Santa Rosa, Sonoma, and Petaluma, where I home schooled my three children for several of the best years of my life. We spent many days learning and exploring many of the local, county, and state parks throughout Sonoma County to the shores of the North Bay. I must admit, the libraries were my favorite destinations. Having young ones so close in age, I rarely made it beyond the children's sections though.
I grew up and left Los Angeles County at age 18 to attend Sonoma State University to study first English then Business. Though I've had my real estate sales license since 1993, my children came first and I set the license aside. In 2005 I picked it up again and learned the art of marketing with CPS Country Air Properties, a valuable education. In 2008 I moved to Timothy Toye & Associates, where Timothy Toye a master in the craft of sales, taught me to close transactions.
Short sales were a natural for me. I have empathy for the homeowner who just lost their job or their spouse, for the mother who was diagnosed with cancer, and for the senior whose social security was reduced by half. I understand the gas prices were more than some could bear so relocation was imminent. It all hurts and I want to help those who are willing to do something to help our nation get back on track. Sometimes I've encouraged my clients to press into a loan modification harder. Sometimes, I've suggested a client see an attorney who has advised against short sale. In the end, if a short sale is viable I'm ready for the next step and I'm ready to the end. I get along with everyone so I don't mind calling the negotiators and working out the many quirks and kinks that arise throughout the transaction. I don't mind working with the agent who has never done the short sale. I'm patient yet tenacious in closing. If there is help to be had through a short sale, I'm here to provide the experienced service.

I've been selling homes in Lake County since receiving my license in 1998. I am constantly amazed at all of the unique and beautiful areas we have here in our county to explore and enjoy I especially enjoy representing Buyers when I can educate them about the process of buying a home and have helped hundreds to buy their first homes! I have nicknamed myself a "research junkie" because I love to research homes until I am satisfied that I have found the very best deal that many clients can buy. I am also a teacher at heart and love to educate my clients and make them feel they are very much a part of and understand every part of their purchase. Buying a home truly is the American Dream and I gain a lot of satisfaction out of seeing my clients achieve that dream. Throughout the years, I have developed a network of professionals that have consistently given my clients sound advice. I kind of "adopt" my clients into my family and, like a protective mother, I demand the best treatment for them. I see people at their best and their worst throughout the very stressful, but always rewarding process of buying a home and I make myself available at (almost) all hours of the day or night because I understand the pressure they go through and the many questions that are racing through their mind. I encourage them to contact me often! I am happy to say that I have had very few escrows fall through over the years. I work hard to make sure that the transaction can succeed before I begin. I love happy endings! Before joining TeamToye, I worked for Re/Max in Lake County for nine years, receiving many awards including: *2002 Presidents Club, Executive Club and Top Listing Agent of the Year *04 & 05 & 2006: 100% & Multi Million Dollar Club *2007 Multi Million Dollar Club & Feb sales agent of the month *2008 May sales agent of month & 100% Club award *2009 April sales agent of the month & Dec listing agent of the month I am a graduate of Realtors Institute and have the GRI designation. I also have a certification in dealing with "Distressed Properties" - aka, short sales and REO's. Though this market has been very sad in many ways, it is also the best time that I have seen since I received my license for Buyers to achieve their dream of home ownership! The deals out there and the interest rates available are incredible! Just as some believed the home values would only go up, many people will wait too long and miss the awesome opportunities available right now. With the surrounding markets having a 20% increase in purchase prices and multiple offers being submitted on the best deals, now is the time for Buyers to grab onto the opportunities available to them! When you are looking for an experienced, caring agent that will work to take the confusion out of the process and make you an active participant, call me anytime on (707) 272-2876 or email me at Yvonne@TeamToye.com .

Real Estate has always been my dream. Now, I have the opportunity to live my dream by Relationship selling, Making new friends and helping them make the toughest decision buying their new home, as easy as possible.
After graduating High School in 1980 from Anderson Valley High in Boonville, CA. I started off in construction. Mostly doing underground construction, building pads for hospitals and schools, and paving streets on HWY 101 in Santa Rosa. As well as, some carpentry. I was raised in the Mendocino County and raised my family there too. I was married in 1984 and had two beautiful children. This new change in life made me want to succeed even more. We all want to give our children more than we had growing up. I studied Business and tried to learn Spanish at the college of Mendocino in Ukiah. However, starting a family took priority and providing for them leads me into my new career, Auto sales. It wasn't Real Estate, but a great education to lead me too my goals.
In the early 90s I began selling in the auto industry at Thurston and to my surprise, I was leading our region in customer satisfaction responses within two years! The highest level that Toyota or Chevrolet had ever seen at that time. After a little extra training from a seasoned salesman, my sales shot through the roof. To set myself apart from the “car salesman reputation” I was honest, even if the truth hurt. Plus a good follow up system. Following up is very important to me. The most important question is the question my clients ask. If I don't know the answer, I'll find the answer and get the information to them. I pride myself on honesty and communication, and believe that all people respect this, including myself. I had multiple awards, plaques and trophies, and In 2015 The Valley Fire took them all except the memories of my achievements. Twelve years as a salesman, two years as a finance manager and two years as a service writer.
With my experience I feel confident that I'm ready to help clients make the best decision when buying their new home. A home is where we plant roots and build a strong foundation to raise our family and watch our children grow. It’s to my belief that, our family is the most important thing in life so, the home that we raise our family in, is equally important. For these reasons, buying a home is the biggest decision we will ever make in our lives time. Buying a business is a big decision but, where our family sleeps safely and soundly is still the most important decision we will make.
I'm ready to help you make this decision, and make new friends along the way. Your success is my success. When you are ready, I'm here for you... Contact me at any time 707-272-9905 or by email at Joe@teamtoye.com
