John Chapman

John Chapman
Associate Agent

I am a long time Sonoma County resident with homes in the Russian River area for over 20 years. Many of you might know me from my previous life as a musician in the band Midnight Sun, a local reggae band.

For many years I lived with my wife and two children in Santa Rosa. My wife, Lisa, is an audiologist. Her practice is in Marin County, where we have many friends.

We own a vacation home on the island of Roatan, Honduras. My wife and I fell in love with the island on a vacation and decided to purchase a home. Please feel free to ask me any questions about Roatan.

We love music, films, and the great outdoors. We also love living and working in the Russian River area.

Brendan Martin

Associate Agent

Born and raised on the Russian River, I have been at Zephyr Real Estate - Russian River for close to ten years, licensed for the last seven. In that time I have had the good fortune to team up with one of the premier realtors in this area, Susan Packer. Working for Susan, first as her assistant and now as her partner, has been the best education around.  The combination of Susan’s years of knowledge and my energy an willingness to learn is indeed a winning combination.  There is simply no substitute for actually selling lots of homes. I have sold all types of property from cabins in the woods to multimillion dollar estates.

Susan and I go above and beyond for our customers, using a full service motto. Whatever your real estate needs, we are available, willing and happy to help.

Heidi Hemstalk

Broker Associate 

I come from three generations of bay area realtors and builders.  I grew up in Novato and went to college at Utah State obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and Business.

Liscensed since 1989 I began my real estate career with Frank Howard Allen Realtors in San Rafael.  I later moved to Petaluma selling new home subdivisions for KB Home in Petaluma, Cloverdale and Sonoma.  After taking some time off to raise my son I purchased land in the Russian River area and fell in love.  I bought several "fixer" investment properties in the area and was an owner/builder of a new home in Penngrove.  I joined forces with Frank Howard Allen in Guerneville that is now Zephyr Real Estate.  I have sold homes and land throughout Sonoma County and know the market and how to work it.  I also know how to respect the needs of my clients, I have awards for "Outstanding Customer Service" and sales awards.

My mission is to put my client’s needs first, I love my job and Sonoma County and will strive to get you the home of your dreams!
