I have been associated with Dale Dockins and North Bay Commercial Real Estate and Property Management for eleven years. During that time I have experienced excellent professional management. Dale is a long-standing member of the Santa Rosa business community, with many valuable contacts. The property management portion of Dale’s business is run very efficiently. Important documents are always dispersed in a timely manner. Records are kept accurately; phone calls and emails are answered on a same-day basis. One example of the excellence of Dale’s property management is when I chose to sue a former tenant in small claims court. Dale was there for me every step of the way, advising and supporting. He even took time from his busy schedule to attend the court hearing; the photos he produced at court helped me win my case. The commercial real estate portion of Dale’s business is also exceptional. When it was time to sell my commercial property, Dale did an excellent job advertising and showing it. He made himself available to personally show the property, and advised me appropriately as to how I should handle offers. The successful sale of the property was due to Dale’s great advertising and persistence in getting the word out to prospective buyers.

We have watched, and invested in, complicated real estate operations created by Dale. This has been through good times and bad. Always his high standards of never missing a month of full reporting on various investments have been impeccable. Above this, I have likened him and his character, to realtors of bygone days. These current days the profession of real estate has taken on a somewhat tarnished reputation. But for me, he reminds me of my antecedents who were high in the real estate profession of the day and whom I use as a yard stick in evaluating Dale Dockins. My grandfather, OW Cotton, was one of the primary founders of modern San Diego and the expositions of 1915 and 1935. He was president of the San Diego Realty board. His son, John Cotton was president of the San Diego county, California state and US national boards of realtors as well as being on the board of the International real estate In those days, real estate was a hallowed profession. Dale Dockins is a rare example of that, now somewhat rare, tradition I know so well from my youth. I will stand behind him as a rare man of solid integrity…a man of honor. - James E. Cotton

I would recommend North Bay Commercial Real Estate to anyone who is looking out for their best interest. Thanks again! - Joel Durand

This is the BEST Commercial Real Estate business in Sonoma County. We worked with Michael Mazanec and we couldn't have asked for a better agent. To say he went over and beyond would be an understatement. After working with another agent, which tried to make us pay as much as possible in order for them to get a higher commission than what the properties were currently rated and also would never respond to our phone calls until we stopped working with him. Michael always responds to phone calls, went and helped us at the city numerous times, and even went as far as to help us move stuff into the building. He represented US, and I can't think of a way he could of done that better. We are so thankful to have worked with him. - Taylor Stroud
