Tracy Reynes

Real Estate Brokerage

“From Bridge To Vine, We Have You Covered…”
Tracy Reynes is part of the Sonoma team at Terra Firma Global Partners, one of the preeminent residential brokerages in the North Bay. Eleven offices service Marin, Sonoma and Napa Counties. Founders Bill Facendini and Heidi Rickerd Rizzo created a brokerage emphasizing small, local offices that reflect the communities they serve. With the focus on collaboration over competition, and quality over quantity, the teamwork of Terra Firma’s associates produces great success for their clients.

Terra Firma also has a commercial team with extensive experience in multi-family, industrial, retail, office and land/vineyard properties. 

Terra Firma extends far beyond what a conventional brokerage firm offers. We envision ourselves as both a lifestyle company committed to informing and connecting global communities, and a creative company offering design, marketing and sales solutions for buyers, sellers, developers and investors alike.

We have made a conscious decision not to be a large organization, or an organization based on the production of their associates. Rather, we focus on new ideas and new approaches to real estate brokerage services that relate back to relationships and integrity.

Mary Piasta

Sonoma’s Historic Law Firm

Mary Piasta holds the honor of being the first woman partner of Sonoma’s historic law firm Haeuser, Valluzzo & Piasta. Serving the town since 1893, the firm’s deep roots reach to the administering of Gen. Vallejo’s estate and Sonoma’s incorporation.

Mary offers big-city, big-firm lawyering in the heart of Sonoma. She brings her wisdom and experience gained from 13 years in complex litigation, which includes 2014’s top California real estate jury verdict, and a prior role in the Governor Gray Davis administration.  

The honor Mary holds most dear however, is that of practicing law to her clients’ highest benefit. Her genuine compassion, skills and drive to proactively advocate for her clients—whether individuals, families, wine makers, film makers, entrepreneurs, or businesses of all sizes—mean peace of mind for those who engage her. To Mary, their trust is priceless.

She left large law firm scenery for Sonoma because well, it’s a wonderful life. When her family first arrived, they all fell in love with the green grass, quacking ducks, warm locals and a historic law office that thinks out-of-the box. From her plaza office, Mary counsels in estate planning, real estate, business strategy and brand protection.
