We are Dave and Debra Schafer.   We live in the foothills of California's Sierra Nevada  Mountains, and we feel very lucky to live in one of the most beautiful places on the planet.

As the owners of Nevada County Realty and Placer County Realty, we have over 35 years of combined experience in all areas of real estate.  If you are thinking of selling, or buying, residential, commercial, industrial, land, or multi-family properties we can be of great service to you.  We are area experts in both Nevada County and Placer County, and keep close tabs on the changing real estate market.  Below are some services that we offer.  Please call or email us if we can be of service to you.


Thinking of Selling?


1.    Free Market Analysis – This is a great way to find out what your home is worth in today’s market.   Just give us a call,

       or email us, and we will get to work for you.


2.   Competitive Fees- By law, real estate commissions are not a fixed price.  We believe that real estate

       market commissions should adapt to your situation so the end result is more money in your pocket.


3.    We are members of 3 local MLS - We are members of Nevada County, Placer County, and Yuba/ Sutter Multiple

      Listing Services., Zillow, Google, Yahoo, etc, all put their data from these Multiple Listing Services. 

      We make sure that folks know your house if for sale.


4.  We also provide extensive advertising of your property on the Nevada County Commerce web network. This web

      network offers free advertising to local businesses, and the web network averages 23,000 monthly visitors.


5.     Shorts Sale Expertise-   When a situation calls for a short sale, you need someone that has the right tools to get the job done.   We provide short sale facilitating with your lender, so there is no extra cost to either you, your lender, or your buyer.


6.    Selling By Owner?-  We are pleased to now be offering a low cost service for folks selling or buying real estate by owner.   We can do all the paperwork, and help you with all the disclosures and inspections for a very low fee.


Thinking of Buying?

1.    Our Buyers have online access to 3 Multiple Listing Services and can browse the homes for sale online.

2.    We also provide our buyers with Instant Notification of new listings as they come on the market.

3.   Our Buyers get a Rebate to use for their closing costs at the close of escrow.  Our rebate is credited at the close of escrow and is based on 1/3 of  1% times the purchase price.   For instance.  If you buy  a house for $250,000 you will get a rebate of $832.  If you buy a house for $620,000 you will get a rebate for $2,067.   It is great way to offset your closing costs.

4.   Home Warranty-  We provide all our home buyers  with a home warranty for the first year.  If something breaks, it is likely covered.
