There is also Zillow.com which is free for you as a buyer as well. Past clients can write reviews so you can see what kind of Realtor you will be working with, before you even met them.
Best of luck.
Northern California is huge, where would you work, do you want near a large city, in the country, small town, where do you want to be???
Christine you are already in CA, so you should have some idea....
If you like I can find out for you where you could find some 200 K homes in N. California if you give me some idea of your needs besides the price and then I would gladly refer you to a partner agent of mine in that area....
Do you have already offers on your current home? Are you selling with the help of a Realtor or
are you selling on your own?
Let me know what I can help you with.... Talk to you soon I hope.
