As a Broker Associate for Coast Real Estate I bring over 15 years experience selling real estate on the Mendocino Coast. I moved to Mendocino 23 years ago from Los Angeles where for 17 years I was an executive in the entertainment industry. I began my career as a publicist and worked with such high profile talent as Barbra Streisand, Frank Sinatra and Dolly Parton.
became the first female to run a network publicity department when I became Vice President of ABC-TV’s West Coast Public Relations. I ended my Los Angeles career as ombudsman for Mayor Bradley in his effort to enhance the city’s relationship with the entertainment industry.
Upon first coming to the Mendocino Coast, I worked with the Mendocino Art Center fundraising and organized their education program. Then I took over as Managing Director for the Mendocino Theater Company. Once everyone started saying “she knows just about everyone in town." the clear next step was to go into real estate.
I approach life with an abundance of energy that propels my success.My passion is my large, noisy family. I am an artist, wife, mother, grandmother, real estate broker and secretly in my heart, in the nicest possible way, a clown.
I have lived on the Mendocino Coast since 1995 and know in my heart there isn’t a place I would rather live. Whether I’m driving down the road or going for a walk on the beach I always have a chance to enjoy the amazing scenery and wildlife. I love the small town charm and how friendly and helpful the people are here.
I started in the Real Estate business in 1989 as an office manager. In 1997 I received my real estate license and began working for Coast Real Estate and in May of 2012 I received my Brokers license. My husband is a craftsman and a licensed building contractor which has helped me develop a keen eye for details and quality of construction. We have completed building our first home together on a beautiful property in Fort Bragg.
With my 25 years of experience in the Real Estate field I have developed my skills into a “Top Notch” Realtor. I pride myself in being open and honest, if I don’t have all the answers I will find them for you!
Selling property on the Mendocino Coast is rewarding in many ways – finding that perfect oceanfront or country property for a client, meeting new people and making long term friendships, not to mention being surrounded by the beauty of the ocean every day. My clients satisfaction and comfort with their real estate decision is very important to me. I want them to know I am available at all times, my services don’t end at the close of the sale.
As a native Californian I have realized the Mendocino Coast is a very unique place to live. It is no wonder that people who could live anywhere in the world choose to live here.
I was born and raised in a little town called Comptche outside of Mendocino. I feel very blessed to be back and raising my children here, who are the 7th generation of my family growing up amidst our iconic giant trees and sea. Coast Real Estate is my family business. It was purchased by my parents, Jim & Patty McCummings in 1997. Jim is still our Broker while I attain my Broker's license and take the reins. Being a Realtor in this region is a truly rewarding profession. As Realtors, we get to see beautiful homes and pieces of land that many people never will. And in addition to that we are actively involved in helping other people begin their dreams here. One of my mottos is "Never Give Up" and that mindset makes me a Realtor who will do everything within my power to help make your dreams a reality, to protect you from pitfalls and to help you find the answers to the many questions that come up from every side of a transaction.

"Thanks for making this the simplest and best real estate transaction of our lives."
Bob & Meredith F. of Alameda (Bought in Caspar)
"Buying real estate when you're working, selling your own home, and preparing to move from the Bay Area was a huge stress! What I needed was someone I could rely on, who was professional, intelligent and super competent. Sara Fowler of Coast Real Estate was all that and more. Her calm manner and problem-solving abilities got me through the process without a hitch. She managed to find commercial and residential properties that werr ideal. No wonder she was the one recommended to me by a top San Francisco real estate firm. Thanks, Sara, for making my life lighter and for introducing me to the incredible Mendocino Coast and its gentle and generous community." Donna Medley of San Francisco (Bought in Fort Bragg)
"Sara Fowler was the perfect agent to help us sell our property of over 30 years in Anderson Valley. Her patience, wisdom and guidance made a potentially difficult and emotionally fraught experience quick and easy. We had complete trust and confidence in her. My only complaint is that the sale went SO quickly, that it was a struggle to pack up fast enough to leave. I recommend her to anyone wanting to sell (or buy) property." Joy L. of Boulder, CO. (Sold in Navarro)
