TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR CLIENTS:


From start to finish, Sarah was prepared, professional, and knowledgeable. Sarah stayed on top of all aspects of the sale, including
inspections, documents, and other associated tasks. We were particularly impressed with the professional manner in which she
marketed the house, having a professional photographer take pictures and create a 3-D “walk-though” model of the house. The
house sold in less than oneday! We will strongly recommend Sarah and Forbes Realty to our friends and family.
– Rick & Robin

My husband & I worked with Claire to purchase our first home this summer. She was very down to earth, honest, and extremely
helpful. She showed us multiple homes that fit our needs and budget, and never pushed us to go over budget or wasted our time
showing us homes that would not work for us. She was very easy to get in touch with and available to answer all of our questions
about the homes, general process, & to review closing details. She was a great negotiator when the escrow almost fell through due
to the bank’s auditor not valuing the property for the sale price and got us our dream home! We had a 4 month old at the time and
she was great with him while we looked at homes or signed papers.We are both ecstatic with our new home & with how quick and
easy Claire made the entire process for us & would highly recommend her!
– Ethan and Becky

We recently decided to put our rental property for sale. Through a family member he told us about Jonna Kitchen. She had just got
her real estate licence, and works for Forbes & Associates. We set up a meeting and they got everything together amazingly quick.
Jonna arranged for all photos and aerial views of the house and did incredible and professional job with the listing of the house. We
got offers immediately. And accepted one. All of the paperwork and meeting and inspections were handled entirely by Jonna, and
she also had to deal with five tenants. She did an incredible job. Now the house is sold. Anybody considering selling their property
and wanting a complete commitment, they should definitely consider Jonna Kitchen.
– Jim and Zoraida

Purchase of new home and sale of old home. Sue was great!!!We were looking for a home in Trinidad and she was very helpful,
showing homes that had not yet been listed and aggressively seeking possible homes that she knew were what we wanted. After we
found a home she then went out of her way to help us sell the old one, showing up at all the inspections and keeping her eye on the
process. If you are buying or selling a home in Trinidad at can’t recommend her highly enough.

Be a Volunteer Trail Steward!


Volunteer Trail Stewards (VTS) is a grassroots program of the Humboldt Trails Council (www.humtrails.
org). Stewards serve as community eyes and ears whenever they are out walking, running or riding the
trail. Stewards also call in safety hazards, pick up litter and report camping or inappropriate use, but are
not the police. In addition, about once a month Stewards host a Saturday morning work session where
volunteers work with City staff on a trail project. This may be brushing back a section of trail, rebuilding a
wash-out, removing exotic plants or improving signage. No prior experience or tools are required; the only
qualification is willingness. For more information or to volunteer email hughes@humboldt.edu.

Volunteer at a Workday!
The City of Arcata invites the community and community groups to assist with stewardship of Arcata’s
natural resources and join the Environmental Services Department at its Saturday volunteer work days!
Though some workdays highlight specific partner groups, all volunteer work days are open to anyone (all
ages) interested in participating.
• Saturday workdays run from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., with lunch provided.
• Workday dates and location are subject to change – contact Darius Damonte at: (707) 825-2105 or
ddamonte@cityofarcata.org for information on meeting locations.
• Prior to work, there will be a safety talk and tool-use instruction and volunteers must sign a liability
release.
• Volunteers should wear work clothes (long sleeves and pants recommend) and sturdy, closed-toed shoes.

Zero Waste Action Plan
The City of Arcata has adopted a Zero
Waste Action Plan to help reduce waste
generated in the City as much as possible.
The City is asking renters to consider
using the City-provided dishware and/or
use rental dishes and linens. Should you
choose to use the City’s dishware, we will
provide you with the information needed
to properly clean and put away the dishes for the next user. The City
can also provide you with contact information on reusable dish and
linen rental businesses. The City has banned the use of Styrofoam
dishware citywide and single use water bottles inside city facilities. If
you choose to use throwaway dishware it cannot be Styrofoam. City
facilities have sinks, drinking fountains and/or water filling stations
as well as reusable pitchers and glassware. Thank you for helping us
prevent waste in Arcata.
