Real Estate Hour Podcast; Great show and information from Tom Havstad-Permit Consultant…

profile pictureIn case you missed it, ^^^^ here’s the podcast from 7/26/2015 with Tom Havstad joined by Ryan Giannecchini (SC Barns) discussing  the vacation rental ordinance in Sonoma County, and a controversial proposed change in the PRMD’s (Sonoma County Permit and Resource Division) policy affecting auxiliary buildings. Because of public uproar, the policy changes were removed.

However, the fact that PRMD tried to sneak this in, has left a bad taste in our mouths.

Tom is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to resolving permit issues. His company is Permit Consulting Services:
