Rich and Linnea have over 40 years of real estate experience together when it comes to helping Buyers and Sellers with their real estate needs. It is the best feeling when you know you have a satisfied client that will remember you and also tell their friends about your great service—that is what they always strive for.
Rich is the former Owner/Broker of Golden Land Realty and managed that office successfully for many years. Born and raised in San Francisco, he moved to Petaluma in 1978 to be closer to family that was already there. He quickly got involved with Petaluma High school Athletic boosters club where his nieces and nephews were attending school and where he served as president of the Athletic Boosters Club.
He has served on the Petaluma Peoples Service Center’s board and been active for years in Petaluma Rotary. He is currently a member of the Salvation Army Advisory board and an active member of the Petaluma Kiwanis Club.
Linnea emigrated from Sweden to California in 1964 with her husband and 9-month’s old baby boy. It was a new language, new country, and she loved the adventure of learning and fitting in to this new life.
Later, as her second son arrived, she devoted her time to raise her two sons, be part of their activities and also stayed active in the Swedish community, where she is still involved and currently serving as the Treasurer of Linnea Lodge.
In 1991—after working as a Property Manager in a Real Estate office and earning her Real Estate license, she decided to try her hand at sales. Linnea has been a fulltime REALTOR® since 1991.
Two long-time Petaluman’s—one from San Francisco and one from Sweden have been working together as a team for the last 20 years and have made many friends among their clients.
Rich and Linnea are active individuals—enjoying being out in nature, walking, gardening and just staying fit. Their cabin up in Gray Eagle is the perfect place for some down-time and relaxation. They pride themselves on being good listeners, staying in close contact and make sure that their clients always knows what is happening with their transaction.
Rich and Linnea are looking forward to continuing their service to their clients from the new home at Century 21 Bundesen, a trusted name in Real Estate!
Rich Johnson and Linnea Koagedal were referred to my husband and I through my Aunt, another real estate agent who we love, trust and respect. Linnea and Rich absolutely pulled out all of the stops to find us our lovely home.
My husband and I work differently. He wants detailed information, reports, exact numbers, permit information from the city, etc. I want to love the house, reassurance, general information, basically, I want to feel good about the whole thing. Working with TWO skilled real estate agents gave us the diversity of information we needed. Also, they were always available to meet with us for every inspection, signing, report and question that we had.
I highly recommend them for Petaluma and surrounding markets because they live and work there. They KNOW the area and the details about each neighborhood that other agents might not know.
They are kind and understanding people who really know their business. Buying a home right now is not an easy thing to do, I recommend getting a solid team on your side!
Linnea and Rich were recommended to me by a friend, and as a result, I owe that friend, big time!
I dealt with Linnea (mostly) and Rich on both the sale of a unique property and the search, finding and purchase of another. Their knowledge, ability and understanding of my needs were superb. I especially appreciate their patience and ability to deal with my neurotic behavior throughout the entire process. I you want a Realtor that actually listens to what your needs and wants are, you can’t go wrong using these two fine people. Finally, don’t be surprised if on top of everything else, you gain two good friends out of the experience.
We were really lucky to have three great REALTORS®, two in Petaluma and one in Bakersfield. Linnea Koagedal and Rich Johnson went above and beyond to sell our farm and help us in Petaluma. It was a long distance sale and my Bakersfield Realtor would fax the papers to Linnea for my husband to sing and Linnea took them out to the farm for him to sign and return them to us here in Bakersfield. We were truly blessed to have Linnea, a friend of about 45 years, and to have found Janice here in Bakersfield, a new friend to help us. Thank you Linnea, Rich and Janice!
