I think your candor is admirable. I'm sure other agents on this site will offer to help you with the short and long term needs you explained. The cycle of real estate sales tends to be a months or years long process in many cases. A six or nine month time frame while you get acclimated and start to identify your favorite neighborhoods is perfectly normal. The one thing most agents will agree on is that it is wonderful to find clients who are steadfast. Once you find an agent you enjoy spending time with who is doing good work assisting with your search you should stay with them. You'll get great service and they will get the satisfaction of helping you find a home and getting paid for time spent helping you when you find the home you want. Good luck. ... more

Hi Kristin, If you click on my website link below you will find that I have broken out the Santa Rosa listings into 7 neighborhoods, while this is not all encompassing it will give you a general idea of some of the major areas in Santa Rosa and their relationship to each other. Rohnert Park is interesting because their city is divided into sections, there is an A section where all the street names start with A, a B section where all the street names start with B, and a C section,etc. I hope this helps, let me know if you have any further questions.

For Santa Rosa or any other city, I recommend that you use Google Maps to get started. A list is useful, but not as good as a map that shows you neighborhood names and where they are. Google isn't all-knowing, however, and they have missed some areas. I think the Santa Rosa Press Democrat has a good roundup on the web site I reference below. They (and the local MLS) divide the city into four quadrants bounded by Highway 12 and Highway 101. Within each of those quadrants are multiple neighborhoods. Just as an examples the northwest section has the JC area, Fountaingrove, and Rincon Valley. Each of those is distinct in character of the homes. There's not enough room here to do a full description, so visit the PD site to get more detail. ... more

Santa Rosa is extremely varied and diverse in its neighborhoods. You'll find areas of town that are modest and made up of chiefly low income residents, as well as areas that are expensive and very high end. There is a blend of suburban tract neighborhoods -- both low and high end -- and very rural and agricultural neighborhoods. Santa Rosa is often described in terms of NW, NE, SE and SW quadrants, separated by Highway 101 in the north-south corridor, and Highway 12 in the east-west corridor. ... more
