Willits Home Buyer
I was very happy with the service I received. Clint is professional, helpful and extremely knowledgeable about the areas I was looking into. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home.

Willits Home Buyer
I called Clint to help find a home for myself and my daughter we looked at several house’s before we found the one that was the perfect fit and I was very impressed with the Knowledge he had for the houses he knew the pros and cons of each house we looked at. It was a fun adventure looking at  houses with Clint I would highly recommend Clint Hanks if you are looking to purchase a home.

Willits Home Seller
3 years ago Clint helped us find our home in the Willits area and did a great job negotiating a deal for the home. Now that my work location has changed we contacted Clint again to help us sell the home. Clint was able to get us the price we wanted and with his local knowledge of contractors was  able to get all the repair work done at a great price. We had already moved out of the home and a week before the house was to close a tree uprooted and was leaning towards the Propane tank, again with local contacts, Clint had an emergency tree crew at the house right away to prevent a huge problem. Thanks for all your work, you made selling the house easy!

Judy C.
Home Buyer
Clint did a great job for us. He was a very knowable and a great advocate for our endeavor. He was quick to respond to my calls and had honest answers to our questions. Once our bid was accepted Clint continued to stay engaged in the process. He’s our guy in Mendo.

Willits Home Buyer
It was a pleasure working with Clint. I always dread working with salesmen because I don’t like being pushed or talked into something I don’t really want. Clint was very easy to work with. He listened to our wants and needs. We would find a property to look at and he was right there showing us.  Everything went very smoothly. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. 

Jim H.
Home Seller
I first contacted Clint when i wanted to move to Willits while living in Arizona. I saw the house i wanted on line and called Clint. He told me the price was to high and advised me how move forward every thing went very well. five years later, time to move,called Clint. Just as before Professional  service you can count on. When it comes to Mendocino County Realty Clint Hanks is who to see.

Patricia Y.
Home Buyer

“We located Clint Hanks through the Realty World website early in 2018 and he responded to our inquiry right away. Little did we know that we had found someone with vast knowledge of the Mendocino/Ukiah area, where he lives and was born and raised. Because we live in San Francisco we needed a lot of handholding and flexibility to discover our options. Clint is a patient and easy-going realtor who takes all the time you need, from looking around leisurely to your final purchase. His support and assistance remain invaluable to us. Three months after we bought our farmhouse he continues to answer our questions and concerns. We feel that we gained a friendly neighbor with a host of trusted contractors and professionals for jobs that need to be done. I highly recommend Clint to anyone who’s looking to buy or sell real estate in Mendocino!”

Martha S.
Home Buyer
Clint was great, patient and always made sure we understood each step of buying a home. I contacted Clint, because I was impressed with his reviews and background information and I have no regrets. Thank you so much.

If you are buying or selling a home in Mendocino County or nearby, and desire the Best agent to guide you through the process, look no further than Clint Hanks. His knowledge of the area and business are unparalleled. Add to that his calm demeanor and attention to detail, and you begin to understand why he stands head and shoulders above the rest. He never failed to keep me informed every step of the way, and always returned my calls/texts making me feel like I was his only client. His honesty and integrity are only matched by his work ethic and drive, which makes him a TRUE Real Estate Professional. Thank you, Clint   for your truly exceptional service!!!

Janene & Justin T.
Home Seller

Clint Hanks has been an excellent real estate agent, responding quickly when we need help, stepping back when we don’t. He is very knowledgeable and thorough. He went above and beyond to get us what we needed!

Ina F.

Clint offered quick response and professional experience in our negotiations and was able to secure the property we desired in an easy to understand manner. Having not purchased before, it was a non-complicated process.

Gerald M.

Our initial phone call to Clint Hanks was absolutely the best move we ever made, regarding our real-estate ventures! Not only is he honest, and extremely knowledgeable about the tricky business of buying property, but he is also frank in pointing out any questionable details about any issues with the property, the title companies, or hidden fees that can come back to bite you. Clint has managed to save us money in every venture that he has provided service for us, and has gained my complete trust in knowing that his extensive knowledge of the real estate business will provide me with the absolute best service, and results that can be had! I won’t go into the fact that he has a relentless work ethic, or that his response time to texts or phone calls is very close to immediate, “even on the weekends”, and times that he is not working, and he is with his family. I can’t see using anyone else! Thank you, Clint, for all of your hard work, your patience with a anal nitpicker like myself, and making the usually stressful situation of buying property, way more comfortable, and stress free!

Susan R.

From the beginning of my home search through closing, Clint was friendly, available and quick to reply with the questions I had. He is very competent and knows his market well. Clint and his team made finding and buying my home a very pleasant experience. I definitely would use him again wholeheartedly do recommend him for his real estate services!

Resa L.
Mr. Hanks was very professional, knowledgeable, and patient. We viewed many properties which he tirelessly arranged, scheduled, showed up and escorted me throughout. He was always prompt and just a phone call, text or email away. He gave his honest opinion. I respect that. We’re at closing now and I’m a happy customer. I would definitely use his services again and highly recommend him to others. Also, one of his team members was awesome! Ms. Rebecca. I needed a document that had already passed through several hands and could have been difficult to locate. Rebecca made one phone call and got that document to me promptly. I was very impressed! Thank you both for your hard work, dedication and professionalism! Resa Lattimer; Ecstatic new homeowner 🙂

Rick W.

I struck lucky to find Clint Hanks as my buyer’s agent. He’s up to date on RE methodologies today, very personable, and diligent on the hunt for home listings, news, and leads. Crucially, he adds in-depth know-how on local contractors and repair services that each property’s condition would call for. Plus, Clint made himself available on short notice whenever fast action was needed. Put Clint in your corner and you’ll have a resourceful agent who goes the extra mile.

Kevin Hill
Great agent ! , great guy! He helped me with buying my first home. Clint was alway there when I had a question .My daughter and I couldn’t be happier.

Don Jacobsen
I am looking for investment properties in Mendocino county and so I reached out to three realtors, it was mid afternoon. Clint responded himself within 30 minutes. By that evening I had a property analysis, comps and photos taken the same day. This was a property that was not listed in the MLS so  his response took some effort on his part. I will definitely be using Clint for all of my real estate transactions in the counties he serves.

Anthony Cody
Clint recently helped me purchase a home. Although he was the listing agent, he was able to help both sides of the deal in a fair way. (I did not use a separate buyer’s agent) The best thing about Clint is that he is proactive, and responds immediately to any communication. He also helped a friend  of mine purchase a home, and was able to help her get the deal done quickly. His knowledge of the market saved her thousands of dollars.

Alex Chehada
Thank you so much Clint for helping us with our house you found us the greatest deal we will all keep coming back to you for any need You always check on us and gave us great response . Thank you

Kirsten S.
I’ve purchased two houses and sold one with Clint. Helpful, quick to respond to my calls, moved on my offers immediately, not the least bit pushy to go for a more expensive house even when he knew I was buying well under my maximum. Highly recommended.

Joyce and Pierre Archain
Clint is the absolute best. We have always wanted to move to Mendocino County and especially to Ukiah. He helped us find our dream house. He is very informative and extremely patient. We could not have asked for a better agent. He kept us informed throughout the whole process of the sale. He was always available either by phone or email to answer any questions or concerns we might have. I highly recommend him.

Mike and Amber Bray
It was great to have you as our agent, couldn’t have had a better person. Everything went great and on time. Thank you for making buying a home so much less stressful. It was definitely easier than I thought it would be. You were very caring about everything.

Doreen Walstad
I recently purchased a home in Mendocino County. What I was looking for was not the regular neighborhood home and it was not easy to find. Clint was recommended to me by a colleague who has worked with him on the last two homes her family bought. Clint is hard working and a great guy to have in your corner. I am not the easiest person to please and Clint helped me through the whole process with care and professionalism. He answered my many questions and concerns. If he had to find out something he did the research and got back to me in a timely manner. If I ever purchase another home I will definitely be calling Clint. ”

Erin Anderson
First Time Homebuyer

When I first decided to buy a home, I was terrified and had convinced myself that it was impossible. Well, after I talked to you, all those fears left my mind. You made the buying process way too easy! You had answers to all my questions and if you didn’t then you found them. I never felt like I was doing this alone or that you led me in the wrong direction. Your approachable attitude made it very easy to ask questions I felt were “stupid” without feeling stupid. I am absolutely in love with the home I bought and I partially have you to thank for that.

Jess Adams and Dennis Wiegle
Homebuyers- relocating from out of the area
We thank you for all the time and effort you put in to find us a new home. You sent us many possibilities on the computer and drove us around looking at several. Then, you not only did all of the paperwork, you also arranged to be there to have our home measured for new carpet. You went above and beyond what the average agent would do. You are appreciated.

Mark & Julie Bruna
Homebuyers-relocating from out of the area
We want to thank you,  for guiding us through the process of finding a new home and all that entails. Your knowledge of the area, your contacts and expertise were above and beyond our expectations. We love our beautiful home, thank you Clint for taking the usual stress out of the process. We are Home!

Madeleine Russo
Homebuyer-relocating from out of the area
Love the new house. Clint made the whole buying process  – long distance from the Bay Area- a piece of cake. From his targeted listings showing only Brooktrails listings to his electronic document signing and follow through with the Seller on repair items. I would definitely use his services again, BUT I’m not leaving! Highly recommend-

Kevin & Bree Klotter
Homebuyers-relocating from out of the area
Clint did a wonderful job listening to our priorities and found us a home that fill ALL of our requirements. Both of us totally enjoyed working with Clint. He is easy to get along with, listened to our needs and was very honest about what we should expect when moving into a new community.

Marci Jackson
Clint made the transition easy, got me a good price and took care of everything!

Clint has gone out of his way to help us find our dream home. He took us all around Lake County and Mendocino County and tho we didn’t find our home yet, he has been great looking up places for us. Anyone who needs help finding a home in an area he is working will benefit from Clint’s ability.

Sky Stanfield
Clint was extremely helpful in facilitating my first home purchase. This was an unusual sale and involved a fair bit of back and forth before I could move ahead and Clint was always there to answer my questions.

Ed & Marshella Bland

Yolanda Luque
First Time Buyer
Clint was instrumental in helping me purchase my first home. He was patient and helped me through the process. When I thought my dream home was slipping away, he connected me with a lender that closed my loan with in 21 days. Without Clint’s help and support, I would not be living in my home. Thank you so much for everything you did for my family and me.

Sally and Wayne Smith
We were extremely fortunate to have Clint Hanks as our Realtor as we are new to the area and all that purchasing a home now involves. He had us show up very early on the first day the house came on the market, and thus was the only reason we were first to get our offer submitted first, otherwise we would have lost any chance of now having our new home. Thank-you so very much for sticking with us through a long closing. We highly recommend Clint for all your real estate needs.

Tom Sharples
private investor
Clint’s one of the best buyer’s agents I’ve worked with, and I’ve worked with quite a few. Even on a very low $ vacant lot deal that required a lot of paperwork and thankless back-and-forth emailing and phone calls, he did an outstanding job getting to a quick close. I’d strongly recommend contacting him the next time you need a knowledgeable and diligent agent to look after your interests.

Laura Bianchi-Limbird 
Real Estate Investor
Clint has assisted us with almost a dozen Real Estate transactions, both large and small. He has always gone above and beyond the call of duty! He returns call promptly and is easy to reach. I have recommended Clint to many friends and family members.

Kathleen Shestakoff
Retired Bookkeeper, compulsive dabbler
I looked for a place that fit all of my requirements for over 3 years. I contacted Clint through a listing on the net. That place didn’t turn out but within a week or 2 Clint found the perfect place for the right price. It has been just a bit over a year since I moved in and I still wake up and think “I can’t believe I get to live here.” Clint handled the entire process and there is absolutely nothing that could have been better or smoother about the whole experience. I recommend Clint without reservation.

Kirsten S. 
I had a great home-buying experience with Clint. Throughout the process, Clint was helpful, patient, and followed my lead regarding my target  price range and style preferences. As a first-time buyer, I had many questions and appreciated his clear explanations. From start to finish, Clint’s expertise helped make a huge step much easier. I highly recommend him as a Realtor, and will definitely call him if I decide to buy or sell again.

S. Stanley Lee
new homeowner
Clint Hanks is the best ! When I buy another home, I’ll definitely talk to Clint.

Ed/Marshella Bland
We have used Clint on 4 occasions.( 2 sales and 2 purchases). For each of the processes, Clint demonstrated top-flight professionalism. His main concern is doing everything possible to make the client comfortable through out the detailed realty process.
Great communication skills and complete answers to all client questions no matter how detailed.
It is our opinion, should the occasion arise, we would certainly use Clint again.
