Integrity and Authenticity in Real Estate

The Joel Toller Team has  provided real estate services for over 20 years and specializes in representing buyers and sellers of luxury  residential properties, wineries, vineyards, and complex development deals throughout Napa and Sonoma. The Joel Toller Team ranks in the top 1% of Coldwell Banker agents worldwide. Its success is attributable to principal agent Joel Toller, associate agent Erin Bright Russell, and expert support from associates Barbara Gates and Vanessa Mullally.

Both Joel and Erin are native to Napa Valley and are engaged members of the community. Part of their team philosophy is providing a full range of success-oriented client service and a commitment to give back to local businesses, schools, and non- profit organizations. Joel has volunteered for years with the St. Helena Rotary, and Erin serves on the Board of Directors for the Napa Valley Grapegrowers. Both place great importance on the work that these and other organizations do to increase the quality of life for Napa’s citizens. Joel said, “I feel fortunate to have been raised in this beautiful valley and enjoy working with people who value the place and the community as much as I do.”  The  team also participates in the Coldwell Banker Brokers of the Valley local business rein- vestment program, supporting a locally- owned business at every close of  escrow for the first quarter of 2021.

When asked about how their business has been affected by the events of the past year, Erin said, “The past year’s events surrounding the pandemic created an even higher demand for wine country property, and market activity has been strong.” Unfortunately, both Joel and Erin were directly impacted by the LNU and Glass Fires, as were many of their clients, families, and friends. Joel said, “Our deepest gratitude goes to the first responders who put their lives on the line to defend our properties. The resiliency and strength of our community have really shone through.” Even with the challenges 2020 presented, the Joel Toller Team completed multiple notable sales in Napa and Sonoma. Joel said, “It  was  a  record  year for our team. We were glad to be involved in a number of the highest tier transactions in Napa and Sonoma Counties.”

Erin reflected, “One of the most touching elements to me during that challenging time was the outpouring of support for our region. People all over the world love this special place, and  being from here, we appreciate that. It’s why we enjoy doing what we do.”
