Our Mission 

The mission statement for Mendocino Bayside Realty is to share the beautiful qualities of the Mendocino Coast with others, have fun, work hard to produce the best outcomes with few regrets, live life with gratitude, and find joy in the journey. The dedication to service for the highest good, teamwork, and a solution-oriented approach to doing business is the cornerstone of Mendocino Bayside Realty’s success.

Birdie and Howie bring a sincere and “down-to-earth” sensibility to every relationship. With Mendocino Bayside Realty, they have the ability and desire to provide to all who are interested in these things, a comfortable, genuinely engaged, and informed experience when buying or selling real estate. 

“Mendocino! It’s such a fun word to say. It’s unique and beautiful. It invokes thoughts of both splendor and tranquility.”  - Birdie Holmes 

“The joy and excitement I share with clients when a transaction closes is one of the main reasons I work in real estate.” Howie Holmes 

Birdie Holmes


 Birdie, born in Santa Clara County, moved to Fort Bragg in 1986. They’ve been together since 1988, sharing their love of art, architecture, property development, gardening, cooking, basketball, bicycling, and their work, with both buyers and sellers, to help clients find what they seek. The joy and excitement they share with their clients when a transaction closes and someone gets the keys to their new adventure; or, a heartfelt Bon Voyage as they begin a new journey, brings great satisfaction and purpose that makes life worthwhile.

My wife Birdie and I have been together sharing our experiences in construction and real estate since 1988. We started our residential home design, construction, and property management business, Whole Earth Enterprises, in 1992.

After 16-years as a Realtor, Birdie became a Broker in 2018. I followed her into the business when I was licensed as a sales agent in 2019. We now own our own brokerage Mendocino Bayside Realty. She and I are a great team. We enjoy our live/work lifestyle and love using our years of experience and skills to help folks find their way here, to the heavenly coast of Mendocino.
