Get to Know Jim Hay

There are, from time to time, four, six or eight agents at Sea Cottage Real Estate. At the moment, there are seven... if I'm counting right. We like it that way... a small office and more of a team atmosphere and relationship. 

Each member of the Sea Cottage staff takes pride in the professionalism of our agency and the amount of solid experience we bring to our jobs of representing people in the increasingly complex field of real estate. At Sea Cottage, Job Number 2 is getting the offer... Job 1 is taking care of all of the interests of the client. We advise and carefully guide the buyer (or seller) through all the many steps leading to a successful close of escrow. The process of finding just the right property, making the offer and negotiating the purchase contract, then proceeding through escrow requires constant attention to detail, each one of the steps of tremendous concern to the client. Our concerns are your interests, your satisfaction.

But we are more than job-oriented; we are - each one of us - intimately involved in community and civic affairs. Each one of us is an Officer or Director on the Board of at least one prominent organization here on the Mendocino Coast. As members of the coastal community, we're giving something back.


Our area of the real estate market along the Mendocino Coast stretches nearly 50 miles along the coast line... and our agents know all of the "territory". Properties range from the dramatic - along the ocean bluffs - to homes that have wonderful ocean views, to homes that are a little further inland among redwoods or in the mysterious "Pygmy" forest. Prices range (roughly) from $300,000 to several million $. Our market is not driven by employment (since we have no large corporations here), but we do have a rather steady market in second-home buyers. Our commercial market is fairly typical - retail outlets, restaurants, office space, and visitor-serving facilities - inns and bed-and-breakfast properties. We are only 3-4 hours from San Francisco and Sacramento, and, while a majority of our buyers come from those areas, buyers from all over the US find us here in this unspoiled area of northern California.


Sea Cottage Real Estate is a full service brokerage for residential. land and commercial sales, serving all of the Mendocino Coastal areas of Mendocino, Fort Bragg, Little River, Albion, and Caspar.
