No agent has better real estate marketing experience than Fred Kusin, who has been a TOP AGENT with a Top Real Estate firm for the past ten years. “Real Estate marketing needs to be as creative and unique as composing music," he says. “Every piece of Real Estate has different elements that absolutely differentiate it from other properties, and those differences need to be marketed in unique ways." It is that type of "out of the box” thinking that has propelled Fred’s agents to the top. Fred is also a very detailed oriented person, being successful in the software design industry for over 20 years. Fred’s experience ranges from being founder of a 120 person software application company, to being president of a database consulting firm which worked for firms such as Bill Graham Presents, Bank of America, Microsoft, Kaiser, VISA, and Apple Computer. Originally from The Big Easy, Fred’s southern charm and technical savvy combine to make him a powerful unique force in Real Estate. He lives at home in Sonoma County with his two teenagers, two horses, two cats, and one dog.

Kelley Norman, Transaction Coordinator
Kelley is a highly organized escrow coordinator on whom we rely to facilitate smooth transactions. When it comes down to it, buying and selling houses involves a lot of paperwork. As soon as an offer is accepted on a house, there are all kinds of documents that need to go from here to there and sometimes back again. The city needs 'this,' the title company needs 'that' and the county needs yet something else. Kelley keeps it all straight and helps ensure everyone gets what they need - and on time.
