A Knowledgeable and Personable Realtor Serving Santa Rosa and Beyond
Caroline Hedgpeth Fuller is a dedicated realtor specializing in both buying and selling real estate in Sonoma County. With a vibrant personality and more than a decade of experience in the industry, Caroline has turned her passion for homes and creative design into her ideal career.
Now, Caroline enjoys getting to know a diverse range of clients, working with first-time buyers, collaborating with her real estate team, serving as project manager to prepare homes for the market, and creating stunning listings to help sellers get the most out of their homes. While her knowledge of the industry alone is impressive, her intimate understanding of Sonoma County, its rich history, and architectural merit make her unlike any other realtor in Santa Rosa.
“I love people and I love houses so much. I don’t really see it as sales, I see it as matchmaking.”
Building a Career in Sonoma County
Born in Oregon, Caroline moved to California as a toddler and has called it home for the vast majority of her life. Between the variety of natural resources, culturally forward thinking, and diversity, Caroline adores every aspect of the state. “It’s a melting pot you don’t get in other places,” says Caroline, describing what she loves most about Sonoma County. Santa Rosa also affords the opportunity to experience many of California’s micro climates, with everything from coastal beaches, redwoods, and the beauty of Lake Tahoe located a short drive away.
As the daughter of an architect, a deep love of houses runs in her blood. After studying drama in college and working in sales, Caroline stumbled into real estate and can’t imagine doing anything else. Her theatrical background allows her to relate to all sorts of people and flex her creative skills throughout the real estate process, while her familiarity with the region’s architecture helps clients find the right home for them. From Queen Annes and Georgian revivals to midcentury homes and sprawling ranchers, Santa Rosa offers plenty of architectural styles to choose from and Caroline knows just where to find them.
“Selling real estate really is a lifestyle. You really have to love it,” says Caroline, describing how every day is unique, challenging, and spontaneous. Whether she’s talking about the mystery and history behind every house or the relationships she builds with clients and other real estate professionals, Caroline’s passion for real estate shines through.
“[My favorite part is] that ahh moment when someone finds their perfect house and it just clicks for them. Or picture day—picture day’s my favorite because it’s all behind the scenes and crazy but it’s the finished product and there’s pride in putting it out there. I love all of that.”
Lending a Helping Hand
When Caroline isn’t helping clients buy and sell real estate, you can find her spending time with her family playing pickleball, badminton, and tennis; watching her daughters play soccer; picking up a new creative hobby such as making wreaths or perfecting her gift wrapping skills; travelling along California’s coast; and giving back to the community. From sponsoring kids in youth sports and helping out with car washes for club soccer to serving as the chair of 6th Street Playhouse and hosting charity events, Caroline is always finding ways to help out.
