General Manager

After graduating from University of California, Santa Cruz and traveling the world, I moved back to my home town of Guerneville and started working at the family business. I am passionate about creating a positive, fun-filled work environment and I love to see this positivity pay forward to our clients, vendors and guests.

Account Management

I moved to Guerneville in 2005 with my husband and I started working at Russian River Vacation Homes at the end of 2009 – just in time for Thanksgiving! I love being active in the community, gardening and the arts. The diverse, inclusive, fun and funky Russian River area suits me.

Jordan Lebovich

Property Management

I have lived and worked in a number of cities in the US, England, Holland, Austria and Germany, but I love living and working in West Sonoma County the most.  For most of my life I have worked with the built environment, the homes and buildings where we live and work.  Now I get to find vacation homes for guests from all over the country and show them the beauty and recreational opportunities t

Settling on the Russian River just a few years ago, I am so happy to live and work in this beautiful part of the world.  There’s so many opportunities for enjoyment!  This is a great place enjoy wonderful people, as well as the peaceful solitude of your own self.  Soaking in the sun, finding shade in the trees, exploring the river and coastal beaches nearby, cozying up during the rainy months..

I grew up in Napa Valley learning about real estate by working for my father who was a real estate appraiser. Started working in customer service at a young age. I lived in a few different places in California (San Francisco and Manhattan Beach) trying to find a place that I could settle. In 2017, I moved to Sonoma County and fell in love with the Russian River and decided to start a family.

Over 40 years ago I chose the Russian River as my home.  Through the years it has been a pleasure to share this beautiful place with my friends and family, and through our business, with the world. It is even nicer that I can do this while working with my family.

I have been managing property in Sonoma County for 35 years. As a licensed real estate broker and active community member it has been my goal to provide safe and clean homes and commercial spaces that make people happy to be in them. I have been instrumental in renovating many properties, most recently the renovation of a large block of storefronts in Guerneville.
