Friends Real Estate Services

“You Have a Friend in Real Estate”

Friends Real Estate Services is an established Murphys/Sonora based Real Estate Company. We are a fully Licensed Independent Brokerage serving the Gold Country in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and portions of the Central Valley and beyond.   

At Friends Real Estate Services, we have 17 Active Licensed Agents, besides Broker John Friend,  and 3 Offices to serve you in Calaveras and Tuolumne Counties.  We belong to the Tuolumne County MLS, the Calaveras County MLS, Metrolist MLS, which covers the Central Valley, the Bay Area and the foothills north of Calaveras County through Nevada County, and CRMLS, which covers Mariposa County and stretches down through Merced County and much of the Central Valley south of Merced, and large portions of Southern California.  

Our Web-Site, Friendsrealestateservices.com, is an incredible resource with links to all of our Listings, and a State-of-the-Art search engine that searches all 4 MLS’s noted above in Real-Time.  This is important, as many Realtors only post their Listings in one MLS, possibly two, and it is easy to overlook Listings that aren't posted by local Realtors.   
Whether you are buying or selling a home, or just curious about the market, our Friends team is eager to be your local resource throughout the entire process. We know our community - both as agents and neighbors - and have the knowledge and local expertise to get the job done in today’s market. Our experienced professionals have access to top Listings, a worldwide network, exceptional marketing strategies and cutting-edge technology, to help make your real estate experience memorable and enjoyable. John Friends' experience as an Appraiser since 1992, with thousands of Appraisals written throughout the entire area, is a valuable resource on individual market areas, their unique aspects and how they compare to each other across the wider market area, to all of his Agents and to all Clients of Friends Real Estate Services.
We look forward to helping you find the home of your dreams. Please don't hesitate to call or email us today.
