Welcome – I am Cathy Wade Shepard and I have lived in Sonoma since 1974. While Sonoma is my home, the entire set of valleys from the towns and villages of Kenwood and Glen Ellen to the cities of Sonoma and Napa, are my communities, my backyard. I live here for a reason. I love it here. And, I love serving my clients with their real estate needs and have been “Turning Houses into Homes” with them for over 34 years.
The areas I represent are some of the finest in California's wine country and buyers cannot hope to do better than to find a home in the Napa and Sonoma regions. The clusters of incorporated and unincorporated townships make finding your ideal community a walk in the park, or in this case, a bicycle ride through gorgeous vineyard roads. Sonoma and Napa real estate is the epitome of diversity. The mountain acreage and dazzling coastlines as well as the charming cottages and sprawling farmsteads are ideal for any lifestyle.
A perfect climate, world-class golf courses, and award-winning restaurants keep bringing new residents from all over the world. Wine makers with long, established lineages have taken advantage of Sonoma and Napa land to increase the diversity of their labels. The welcoming nature of the Sonoma residents has made it one of the Top Ten Friendliest Cities in America.
One of the greatest aspects of living in the Sonoma and Napa Valleys is that there is always something to do. Everything from festivals, art showings, museum exhibits, golf tournaments and wine tours (of course) keep the amazing pace of Sonoma and Napa full of fun and leisure. I personally enjoy the annual Film Festivals in Sonoma and Napa; going to the Napa Opera House and Uptown Theatre and escaping to the mineral baths in Calistoga.
The luxury of living in this sumptuous landscape of active and playful lifestyles is what makes Sonoma and Napa real estate so valuable. Owning a home or estate in this region is a dream that can be realized. Won’t you let me help you find your dream home?
