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”
