Katie Bachner

Katie prioritizes negotiation and knowing the ever changing inventory and economic conditions of the real estate market. She recognizes that whether buying or selling, the transfer of property is more than just a transaction. It is an important and highly individualized experience. Katie places great emphasis on listening to her clients needs, wants, and concerns and makes sure she does everything in her power to realize their goals. Coupled with an eye for design, Katie finds her buyers homes that they can't wait to live in at prices that reflect the best deal possible. For sellers she conveys the gems and unique characteristics of their homes to earn their highest value.

Born and raised in New York City, Katie honed her real estate skills working for the high end real estate company Douglas Elliman. Amidst the city's fast paced environment, she learned how to create a quality deal within a short period of time. After years of searching, Katie arrived in West Sonoma and immediately knew she had found the place she would soon call home. She brings her multifaceted knowledge of art, architecture, and design to her residential real estate practice.

Katie has a MA in Contemporary Art from Sotheby's Institute of Art, as well as a WELL AP designation from the International WELL Building Institute. She has served as a healthy materials consultant for the Marin and SF based green building consulting company, Healthy Building Science and has been a curator for a myriad of galleries throughout New York City and San Francisco.


Katie was fully committed to finding a buyer with the proper financials to purchase my apartment. The buyer did not have her own agent so Katie was solely responsible for making sure all parties did their jobs correctly. Katie was organized, competent, respectful and able to communicate clearly and efficiently. Katie had my best interests in mind and certainly accomplished what I had wanted from her without me needing to ask.

Katie was readily available at all times and very prompt in her communication with us and with the other parties involved. She worked hard to make it all go smoothly, managed our negotiations diplomatically, and maintained good relationships with all.

Katie was the only agent I worked with who could introduce me to the latest in sustainable materials. Though she didn't need to, she came to every property I inspected for my clients, and asked very intelligent questions about what needed to be fixed. She was intent on understanding everything that needed to be done.
