As Northern California wildfires rage, 'real estate must go on'

Agents try to reassure clients even as their own homes and residents are threatened by the deadly fires

  • 73,000 acres have burned, at least 1,500 homes and buildings have been destroyed, and mandatory evacuation orders remain in effect for over 20,000 homes.

Real estate agents in Santa Rosa are watching and waiting with quiet despair as their once-thriving, low-inventory market disappears before their very eyes.
