Beginning on September 24th at Vacation Beach here in Guerneville the summer dams will start to be taken down. The Process takes some time as the workers remove one board at a time letting the water out slowly. On September 27th the work will begin at Johnson’s beach to take down the dam there. The entire process for both locations will be complete as of October first! This impacts both the locals and those who are vacationing here from out of the Russian river area.
The first major change is that the summer bridge at Vacation beach will no longer be there. This is really important to those who use the bridge regularly during the summer because once it comes down you will be able to drive down onto the beach but will no longer be able to get across the river. Also on one side of the river it is very difficult to get your car out once you have driven down unless you go across the bridge and since the bridge will not be there cars will have difficulty turning around
Also once the bridges have been removed it is the ideal time for fishing at the Russian River since the Salmon and Steel head begin swimming upstream and will be inundating the river. This is the perfect time to grab the fishing gear and head on out to the Russian River for some peaceful fishing time. This is a great time of year to take a weekend trip with the family before it starts to rain and the river rises.
Vacation Beach is a very popular spot for riverfront vacation rentals on the Russian River. If you have been thinking about buying or selling a home on the Russian River this is the perfect time! The Russian River Real Estate market is on fire. The buyers have been coming out of the woodwork all summer and they are ready to buy! In this area the majority of the people who are buying river front homes are people from San Francisco with high tech jobs that are looking to diversify their investment portfolio by investing in Real Estate. They have been priced out of the city by the rising market and so they invest in Russian River Real Estate and purchase river front vacation rentals where they can escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and relax. When they are not using their vacation rental the rent it out and collect on their investment. The seller’s in the area are experiencing their homes being bid up way over asking price. The buyers are driving up the prices of homes by offering over asking for homes. When they sell those homes they then set the new market as the market is determined by sold homes in the area that are similar to the ones being listed.

On August 22nd of this year I listed one of the areas most prominent vacation rentals by the name of Rising Star! Rising Star sold this morning on the Russian River for $838,000! The home features three bedrooms and two baths for a total of 1602 square feet with some bonus space available as well. Millar and Company hosted an open house on August 24th and within 5 days we were in escrow! Both the buyers and the sellers agreed to a short escrow and as of this morning the property is officially on record having switched hands. This transaction went very smoothly with both the buyers and the sellers working with us to make sure that everything fell into place at just the right time!
I would like to say to the buyers Congratulations on your new home and I wish you all the joy and happiness in the world. You were such a pleasure to work with and your positive outlook reminded me why I love my job! To the sellers I would like to also say Congratulations on closing escrow and I would like to say good luck as you close this chapter in your life and set off on this new adventure! Thank you for trusting me to list your home and find a buyer that will love it as much as you do.
As a Russian River Real Estate agent this is my favorite part of the job. I list a home and market it like crazy. I hold an open house to generate more interest in the home. Then I find a buyer and write the offer. When escrow is opened it is rather exciting and we begin the process of negotiation between the buyer and seller. However on the closing day when the keys switch hands and everything falls neatly into place the sense of accomplishment and gratitude for being able to be a part of that is overwhelming.
Russian River Real Estate is heating up and buyers are bidding up river fronts higher than I ever predicted they would sell for. If you have been thinking about selling a river front property in this area now is the ideal time to get it on the market before the rain starts and the buyers disappear back into the woodwork! One river front just sold for $150,000 over asking near Rising Star! It is amazing how much these homes are selling for!
Our Mission here at Millar and Company is to sell your home to someone who will love it as much as you, while providing positive solutions in an optimistic atmosphere. We love helping people accomplish their dreams and building relationships. We strive to help people reach beyond today and achieve their higher vision of the future.

I have lived and worked on the Russian River for some time now and I have discovered that there are really only two ways of seeing the area. Back in the day the Pomo Indians referred to Guerneville as Ceola which means the dark place. They viewed the Russian River area as being haunted due to the shadows cast by the thick cover of the trees. Many people today see the floods and water damage and the dark cold nights in the canyons. These things are all part of living here however they are not all there is to living here!
The other way to see the area is to look at the thousand year old redwoods that stretch high into the sky, the beautiful Russian River as the current carries otters and seals in from the ocean, and the powerful Pacific Ocean as the peaceful waves chase seashells up onto the shore. This is the way I choose to see this area. I chose to look out at the mountains of Cazadero dotted with majestic redwoods and graced with a sweet the incredibly peaceful Austin Creek and see the true beauty of this area!
Encompassing these two viewpoints you will get a better idea of what life on the Russian River is all about. But that is not all…some things are not seen but felt! We have a very close knit and loving community. We are known here on the river as a “Hate Free Community.” In other words we don’t care if you are gay, straight, white, black, democrat, or republican…if you are ready to leave your judgement at the door then you will be accepted with open arms and loving hearts. If you have ever lived in a small town then you know that everyone knows everyone. That is how this town operates. New people are saught out and welcomed and quickly become part of the community.
There are some more quirky parts of living on the Russian River as well. We have Tony, the street sweeper who keeps the streets clean and works solely on tips! He used to be homeless and the small businesses began tipping him when he would clean their windows and pick up the garbage on the sidewalk. He quickly became one of the town’s greatest assets. We also have the Mermaids. These are a bunch of people that dress up like mermaids and do water shows as well as other community service in order to raise money to help save the ocean wildlife and provide clean water sources for the community. Another good example of our quirky community are the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, which we simply call the sisters. They hold large bingo games and dress up in all sorts of glamour to raise money to support local charities. They are part of what holds this community together. Although from the outside these people all seem a bit strange, in truth they have the support of the community due to their big hearts and selfless personalities!
Many times I will be driving to work looking out over the redwoods as the peak out of the fog and reflect on the Russian River and I think to myself “Wow I really live in Paradise!” This is my home. If you have been thinking about buying a home on the Russian River then pick up the phone and call David R. Millar (BRE#01354778) at 707-217-1786 and start living the dream on the Russian River!
MILLAR AND COMPANY…YOUR HOME IN PARADISE!

Many people have never heard of Monte Rio and fewer have ever been there. The truth is Monte Rio is an adorable little town located between Guerneville and the coastal town of Jenner along the Russian River. It is known to the locals and repeat visitors as “The Vacation Wonderland” and is know for its stunning beaches and small tight knit community. This charming little town has so much to offer.
The most common attraction in Monte Rio is of course the beach! During the vacation months a variety of food is offered at a great price on the beach. Everything from a four dollar veggie burger to three dollar nachos! This is great if you are hanging out on the beach and don’t want to pack up all your stuff and drive into Guerneville to eat! Also, kayaks, canoes, tubes, and chairs are available to rent for an hour or if you plan on sticking around you can rent them all day! There are also volleyball, badminton, and horseshoe courts where you and your friends/loved ones can have tons of fun participating in some good healthy competition.
Another attraction that brings many people from the area as well as visitors to Monte Rio is Northwood Golf Course that is located near the Bohemian Grove. Northwood is a landing spot for locals to relax after a long day and visitors to enjoy this paradise to its fullest! Monte Rio used to be the stop on the North Pacific Coast Railroad that connected Cazadero to the Sausalito California ferry. During the 19th century loggers came and wiped out a huge amount of the redwood trees in the area. Sonoma Lumber Company preserved 160 acres of the old growth redwood trees which was later sold to the Bohemian club in 1899. This is how the Bohemian Grove began. Today the Bohemian Grove adds to the attraction of visiting Monte Rio by offering summertime fun and events in Monte Rio.
My favorite attraction in Monte Rio is the Rio Theater located across from the beach. Rio Theater used to be an army surplus store. Since then it has turned into a beautiful theater that plays new and old films! In January 1993 it was purchased by Monte Rio residents Don and Suzi Schaffert.The Schafferts also were faced with a $4,000 fine for allowing neighborhood children to perform chores in the Rio in exchange for a movie ticket, a hot dog and a drink. A judge reduced the fine by 50 percent after the parents and other residents of Monte Rio commended the Schafferts for giving the children a useful activity they enjoyed.The youths who did chores for the Schafferts also began reporting strange occurrences while they were working. Footsteps were heard coming down the stairs from the upstairs loge when no one was on the steps and no other people were in the theater. One youth said he felt an arm reach through a curtain and tap him on the shoulder as a disembodied voice said “Excuse me.”
The Monte Rio real estate market has been very brisk for competitively priced vacation homes and cabins as well as larger river front homes and private estates. Northwood Heights across Highway 116 is walking distance to the golf course and beach, offers smaller cabins and vacation getaway homes. Homes for sale in Monte have some great little getaways and river front properties. If you are interested in investing in Monte Rio Real Estate call David R. Millar (BRE#01354778) 707-217-1786 and let me find you your next home in paradise today!
When it comes to getting a home loan on the Russian River there are three big things that can stand in your way! Those three things include a foreclosure, a short sale or a bankruptcy. Fannie Mae is a common term used to refer to FHA loans. FHA stands for Federal Housing Administration which was formed in 1934 and later became part of the US Department of Housing and Development, known to many as HUD. FHA insures loans in US territory and the District of Colombia that are issued by FHA approved lenders. Patrick Pennington is an FHA approved lender and therefore qualified to issue FHA loans in Guerneville and the Russian River area in general. Since its integration into HUD, FHA has insured over 34 million loans making it one of the world’s largest insurers of mortgages!
Patrick Pennington is our local preferred lender here in Russian River Real Estate because he has been lending here on the Russian River for over Twenty four years and he knows the ins and outs of the market in Guerneville. Patrick is the type of guy that gets the job done. If there is a loan that you will qualify for here on the Russian River Patrick will find it!
It used to be that when you had experienced a short sale on a home you would have to wait two years before you could qualify for a conventional home loan again. “However, on August 16, 2014, the waiting period for a homeowner to purchase a new home after a foreclosure becomes four years.” That means that if you have had a short sale and it has been two years now is the perfect time to contact Patrick Pennington about getting a loan before they put into effect the new four year standard.
