REM 660 Cover_01

Two stories to add to your “Who Knew Department” file cabinet…Jim Tarbell writes about the long and very GREEN history and future of our county’s public transportation system. Since 1976, the MTA has quietly been providing inexpensive alternatives to driving around in your own buggy. Now, with a fleet of forty-nine vehicles, serving over 311,000 riders, and traveling over 745,000 miles last year, the MTA is geared to fulfill their mission “To provide safe, courteous, reliable, affordable and carbon-neutral transportation services.” The tall order is bolstered by having received a five million dollar grant to build a zero-net-energy maintenance building. Read all about it in REM today! 

On a totally unrelated subject, the south coast, for the last eleven years, has hosted a wonderful, weeks-long music festival with the totally coastal name of the Sonoma-Mendocino Coast Whale and Jazz Festival. This year, the festival migrates north all the way to Little River, the first time it’s ventured north of Elk. The musical lineup looks scintillating, and it’s all here for you to discover in this month’s issue of REM.

Of course, it’s called “Real Estate Magazine” and guess what the main event is: yep…REAL ESTATE! Find out what’s moving for April. Maybe your dream house will show up.

Pick up your copy soon, or you can read it here…And thank you for appreciating Real Estate Magazine! It’s a local community resource like no other!

REM 659 Cover_01

I’m very excited that Gowan Batist and Virginia Loperena put their heads and hearts together to write the latest article for Real Estate Magazine. The subject is Noyo Food Forest, and it is… well, let me gush: wonderful. These insanely hard working, savvy young women are food pioneers here on the coast, doing things nobody is doing anywhere else, effectively crusading for a sustainable local food system, and all the while making agriculture look cool to high school students. Noyo Food Forest is amazing. Wait till you read all about it: NFF.

You can pick up a copy of Real Estate Magazine on the north and south coast, all. along the Anderson Valley 128 Route, and inland. Look for them at any post office, Harvest in FB, all Realtors’ offices, and many inns, motels, and stores all over the county. Or you can read it online here. See what’s moving, what’s shakin’, and what’s fresh and interesting in Mendocino County.

REM January 2014 CoverWith interviews covering five interesting (well, who’s not around here?) local business owners AND a great piece on “Propreneurs” by Cynthia Wall, this month’s Real Estate Magazine is crammed with ideas and inspirations to kick off our new business year. For instance, I love what Tracey Coddington had to say about selling real estate: “Real estate is about as dynamic as life can be. In the real estate field. one is supporting people in some of the largest decisions they will make in their lives — it involves all of the pieces of their life: family, home, work and finances, hopes and dreams.” The way we frame our businesses and their goals and intentions actually makes our work deeper, richer, and more meaningful.

I had a coach once (Bill Rodgers) who told me my design work and printing and my card line “supported people from cradle to grave” …He meant that from birth announcements, to business cards, wedding invitations, to memorial cards, and everything in between, people need and use my various services for the celebrations in their lives, for connection and communication in their lives. That simple assessment really changed the way I held my work. It’s all true.

I have emails from people who actually got married because of one of my Ladies Who Lunch cards (not too many more of those left but I have sold probably close to a half a million of them!) One couple nicknamed their baby Pinkie Lou after one of my cards…you never can tell when you are going to make a difference in someone’s life through your particular “genius,” which is what this month’s REM is all about. Last month’s issue, “Community Can-Do” — about local charities, was a huge success. We couldn’t keep our boxes full! This community is just so full of caring, dedicated, beautiful, and effective people that it’s kind of mind boggling. (If you missed this one, you can see it online, along with all our last issues here.)

Thank YOU for making Real Estate Magazine a part of your life too, and for telling your friends that the name of the magazine doesn’t exactly tell the whole story of what the magazine represents in our community. Every reader makes a difference, and we so appreciate hearing that you enjoy the magazine and read it all the time (and we hear this a lot!). Every time you buy something from one of our advertisers, you are helping all of us make a difference, too. Every time you take out an ad, it’s not just an ad for your business, but a support for what REM is able to do in keeping our whole area aware of what fabulosity we get to live inside here on the coast. It’s a big, huge win-win situation, and thank you.

Starting the New Year with a lot of gratitude and much excitement for what’s coming in the next months. Next issue, Brendan McGuigan will tell you all about the amazing Stornetta Lands. Stay tuned!

Cover art for October issue of REM

Cover art for October issue of REM

This month’s cover story is about Mendocino County as a Healing Destination, not just about the healers who live and work wonders here, but the place itself, which has its own form of healing benefits. We are so lucky to live in a place with such beauty, community, and abundance. Hypnotherapist Alena Guest wrote the article and included brief interviews with several local practitioners of non-traditional (to Westerners) medicine. One of these was our beloved Antonia Lamb, her last interview before her sudden death last month, in which she gives an astrological key to Mendocino itself.

You can find copies all over the county, at post offices, Realty offices, motels and inns, grocery stores and many local retail places up and down the coast, inland and in the Anderson Valley. Or you can read it here.

Cover of September Issue of Real Estate Magazine

Cover of September Issue of Real Estate Magazine

Be sure and pick up the latest copy of Real Estate Magazine! This month’s cover story is about Ricia Araiza and Michael Leventhal, longtime coast residents who have moved to Lake County but continue to collaborate on interior design, architecture, and, most interestingly, paintings they do together…on the SAME CANVASES TOGETHER. It’s really extraordinary. A show of recent work is open at Glendeven Inn Mendocino, just put up yesterday, and it’s really gorgeous! Real Estate Magazine is distributed all over Mendocino County, at post offices, grocery stores, all Realty offices, many inns, motels and stores. If you are not in the vicinity, you can read the story online here.

Their process includes working in the same spot at the same time, erasing one another's last strokes, dosey-doe-ing, interrupting, twirling the canvases upside-down or sideways.

Michael and Ricia in the Zone: Their process includes working in the same spot at the same time, erasing one another’s last strokes, dosey-doe-ing, interrupting, twirling the canvases upside-down or sideways.

REM 652 August Cover

Summertime, and on the north coast anyway, the livin’ includes driving someplace to get out of the fog and taking along a six-pack of Scrimshaw, Red Seal or Brother Thelonious Ale, usually to the river for a picnic and a swim. I remember when the North Coast Brewery started, in 1988. Who knew then what fabulosity was in store for the little startup. NCBC has consistently earned high honors for its quality brews, and awards all over the world, while it has enthusiastically participated in its own community, Fort Bragg, California, wholeheartedly. It is also now one of the region’s biggest employers. Jazz and jazz education are huge passions for them, which they support generously. In these two-and-a-half decades, NCBC has achieved the status of one of the world’s great craft breweries. Nancy Harris has written a great story about their history, and about this quarter-century birthday for the August issue of REM. Pick it up all over the county, in Realty offices, inns and motels, grocery stores, restaurants and shops. When you visit the North Coast Brewing Tap Room, be sure to tell them you read about them in Real Estate Magazine! You can also read it online here.

REM 651 Cover 01

I hope you will go find your copy of this issue asap because I think they are going to go fast! But of course, I’m prejudiced about poetry (can’t live without it) AND I wrote the main feature article this time, so you see…

But I do think ruth weiss’s story is so fascinating and she is such an amazing person and has had such a totally creative, wild life. There are a bunch of smaller stories included too about ruth and other poetic matters in the county. You can find copies at post offices, Realty offices, many lodging places and restaurants, Harvest, Corners, Downhome and a ton of other places all over the county. Or you can read it here.

The June cover story on the Mendocino Theatre Company

The June cover story on the Mendocino Theatre Company

REM 650 Cover_01

Very excited about our June issue and the wonderful article writer Sara Liner wrote about Mendocino Theatre Company‘s 36th season, its amazing years of dedication to the dramatic craft, and its new producing director, Felicia Freitas. I was lucky to see one of the last performances of Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo, MTC’s most recent offering. It was breathtaking. I expect more of the same in the coming months.

Go pick up Real Estate Magazine wherever you go in Mendocino County, from the Anderson Valley, to the north and south coasts, to inland…most Realtors’ offices in the county have them, post offices, Harvest in FB and other grocery stores, many shops, the Chamber of Commerce office, lots of the B&Bs,  inns, hotels and motels, too. And of course, you can see it online, here.

REM is G R O W I N G ! We added four pages to last month’s issue and are including more color, more articles and more ads, so the magazine is looking very jaunty. We are kind of on fire about the magazine right now, and the community resource it is. I wanted to mention that, as you know, REM is ad-supported, and, if you go into one of the advertisers’ places of business, please mention you saw their ad. Better yet, if you buy something there, please say that you went in BECAUSE you saw their ad. This attention is why they buy ads in the first place, so it will be very good for them to know their support of REM is working to their advantage, that you enjoy reading it each month and that you appreciate their participation. That’s the way these things go…a big round circle of support for our community and the communities within our community, win-win, mutual back-scratching, and just plain love.

Abalone Watch Cover

Abalone Watch Cover

The latest edition of Real Estate Magazine is on news stands, in the Realty offices and around the county in hundreds of locations now. We’re excited to present Rod Jones’s article about the citizen’s group Abalone Watch, which patrols the coast for poachers and gives information to divers, protecting the prized mollusk. It’s inspiring that one concerned person can make a decision like this that can make such an impact on our coastal communities. We added extra color pages this month, too. Go get one, or you can read the article and see ads on our website here. Thank you for appreciating Real Estate Magazine.

Next month we will explore Farm to Table consciousness and Eat Mendocino locavores with Sarah Bodnar.
