Timo Profil BW




Ranked as a top producer for Sonoma County agent/brokers, I take my cues directly from my clients. By listening to your very specific, individual real estate needs, I make it my singular goal to realize your dream property in as smooth and seamless a transaction as possible. With over two decades of proven real estate success in Petaluma and neighboring communities, my clients know me as their go-to Sonoma County real estate pro. 

Born in England to Italian parents and here in California since the early 90's,  I am living the American Dream. As a grounded and gregarious family guy with 3 sons raised in Petaluma I am an active man-about-town, here and throughout the region, I'm proud to say that over 96% of my proven business comes from past clients, referrals & sphere of influence. 

I'm in constant contact with my clients past and present, local business owners, non-profit and civic leaders. Knowing what is happening within the community on a day-to-day basis, giving back and being a good neighbor is key to keeping on top of the latest real estate opportunities and trends as well as what makes this such a great place to live and raise a family. 

Being fully invested in where I live, work and play is key to providing a dynamic real estate service to clients with a wide range of property requirements from starter home to commercial building and sprawling private estate. I am every bit as focused when working with a first time buyer as with my long-time, highly trusting and in-turn, trusted referral base. Put my superior negotiation skills and acumen to work in all aspects of your real estate transactions, whether you are thinking of buying or selling in this fast-paced and increasingly competitive North Bay market.




Meeting individual buyer and seller's specific needs and goals, while building and maintaining long-term client satisfaction is my number one source of pride as an experienced Executive Assistant and Realtor in the dynamic Rivetti Real Estate Team.

My trademarks are a superior attention to detail, and accuracy with an efficient, un-flustered approach to timely offer preparation and seamless escrow/file managing. I love the challenge of multi-tasking to the extreme and doing it with a positive attitude through to completion in the fast paced real estate market.

Going to work and thoroughly enjoying  what I do and who I work with is a fabulous bonus!  I like best the laid-back country feel of life in Petaluma, along with its small, funky-town character. My personal knowledge and experience in raising my own 3 boys here serve me well in steering discerning clients to their dream home scenario in Sonoma County.

Community involvement and giving back is a big part of who I am as a person. I've built a wealth of volunteer experience into my career and family life. My positive and proactive attitude is first and foremost in all of my personal and real estate endeavors.

What My Clients Have To Say


Sold a Single Family home in Petaluma, CA.

Timo and his team guided me through the preparation for showing, including all inspections and document gathering, the actual showing, and help with negotiations so it was an easy and successful sale. It was a textbook-positive process.

His team gave me confidence and clarity through the whole experience. I recommend Rivetti Real Estate fully and happily.

Bravo and thank you, Timo!

Rebecca Brown

Bought a Townhouse home in Petaluma, CA.

Timo helped me buy my first house! (Still can't believe it!) I had a lot of questions, but he and his associate Renee were patient, professional, and fast in answering all of them. I found Timo through a friend and he could not have been more helpful and knowledgeable about the whole process for this noob home buyer. Highly recommend he and Renee and am so grateful to my friend for recommending him.


Bought and sold a Multiple Occupancy home in Petaluma, CA.

I cannot say enough about my incredible experience with Timo and his assistant Renee. I am 22 years old and had a dream of buying a house in westside Petaluma. Most people would say that is impossible, well not if you have Timo on your side! Timo walked me through the process and made me feel so comfortable and confident throughout the whole process. Timo truly had my back and did the impossible and I now am a proud owner of a house in west side Petaluma. I will be using Timo for any purchase or sell I ever have, and I recommend you do the same. Thank you again Timo! Together we “Made History”
