After Retiring from Pacific Bell, I followed my passion for Real Estate and got my license in 1991.   I started out as an agent in the High Desert selling vacant land and then moved on to the Bay area as a Sales Agent, personal assistant and then found my niche as a Transaction Coordinator, (I think it was my engineering background that grounded me on my attention to detail.)   I fell in love with Nevada County while on vacation and decided to move to the beautiful Sierra Foothills and settled in Nevada City in 2006. Working for Sierra Heritage has been a very pleasant and exciting experience and I enjoy the detail work as a Transaction Coordinator interacting with not only Agents involved with an escrow , but clients and Title Companies.   I find working with various people to complete an escrow rewarding and challenging at times, but it also allows me to keep abreast of all current aspects of Real Estate Transactions, and, I also find time to squeeze in a Sale or two of my own! I love to garden, spend time when I can with grandsons and enjoy my little dog, Teddy, especially when I bring him to the office.

My Client-First Philosophy

There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional – integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.

That said, in my experience as a Nevada City real estate professional, I’ve also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.

This “client first” philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I’ve found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I’ve always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They’ve also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.

So when you decide that you’d like to buy or sell a home in the Nevada City, Grass Valley, Penn Valley, Peardale/Chicago Park, South County, North San Juan areas, please contact me.

I have been a resident of Nevada County for the past 31 years with my husband, John, son Paul and now grandson, Zach. We came to Nevada County to slow down our lifestyle and concentrate on family.  I have been involved in the financial industry helping families with financing and home ownership as well as investments and insurance for the past 25 years and I’ve always looked at my profession as a mission to be able to help others while doing excellence, integrity is everything to me.”

I am concerned for our teens and young adults as they try and cope with an ever changing world and have been deeply involved with Anew Day since it was started 5 years ago. As an active board member I’m committed to the mission of reaching out to hurting families and offering an option of hope.

I grew up in the Bay Area and have invested in income property there all my life. I decided to look for a vacation property in Grass Valley in 2012 and after meeting Alan Savage and folks at Sierra Heritage Realty, I was so impressed that I decided to forget the vacation property and move here and become an agent.

I focus on land sales and showing properties all over the county is more pleasure than work. I particularly enjoy combing the nooks and crannies of Nevada and Yuba county for properties to fit each clients needs. I also enjoy quickly selling properties that have been for sale but have languished unsold because they needed a dynamic agent who aggressively marketed the property. Now that I think of it, most of my listings had been on the market for over a year and remained unsold despite the efforts of the previous broker to sell it. I take pride in the fact that the previous broker for one of these properties advised the owner to lower the price $30,000. I told the owner there was nothing wrong with the price and had it sold within 90 days. There is a difference between real estate agents and real estate firms!

“Mr. Malnor recently sold our property  consisting of 20 acres and multiple buildings in a very remote area of California for $7000 above asking price. this was a very difficult property to market considering its location and the rather high investment that was put into the parcel. It sold in only three months with multiple offers. Bruce worked tirelessly, contacting over a hundred possible clients from multiple backgrounds. I HIGHLY recommend  him if you are considering selling your property. You will not find a more devoted agent.”
Martin and Ulrike Hobbs

“Working with Bruce as our realtor was always an easy and reassuring experience. He went well beyond our expectations to get us the information, advice, and resources we needed. He took excellent care of our transaction, and always took as much time as needed to explain details we didn’t at first understand. He is patient, thorough, exceptionally competent, and we couldn’t more highly recommend him. We won’t hesitate for a moment to call on him for all of our future real estate needs.”
Brent and Jeja Anderson

“Bruce Malnor proved to be an exceptional human being, as well as an outstanding agent and professional. He received all our frightful first-time buyer’s questions with patience, knowledge, true enthusiasm and care. He supported us gently and strongly throughout entire process – like a teacher, counselor, and parent all in one. He displayed a reassuring demeanor, impeccable ethics, enviable knowledge, and seemed to have a sort of magical quality to him wherein he would intuit and decipher what was best suited for our needs and possibilities even more than we did – a trait any real consultant or agent in any field should aspire to hone.
In the end, we signed a deal that exceeded the expectations of what we thought we could achieve with our budget, received tireless brilliant advice, and we felt like both seller and buyer got the best deals! We hope we can count on Bruce to be our agent for all future real estate needs. We hold him in great gratitude.”

Some reviews from Zillow from past clients.

“My transaction on purchasing a home/rental property was quick and efficient just like Patty. She was great to work with and really knows her profession. I highly recommend her for any transaction regarding real estate.”  Julie Garrett

“This is the first time I have purchased a house in the US as I came here from the UK where things work very differently – extra challenging because my Husband had to be away for work a lot of the time so we had to arrange for a lot of online paperwork to be organized.”  Karen Lian

“Patty Puckett spent much time introducing me to the Grass Valley area. We looked at many offerings over a 2 month span. She selected many based on my and my fiancés desires and expertly explained the pros and cons of each. I finally selected one and made an offer. At first I rejected the  sellers counter offer but after looking at the market again for a period of time, the seller and I made the deal. Throughout Ms Puckett was professional and responsive and negotiated the deal all the way thru. I do not hesitate to recommend her to other home buyers as they will be personally pleased with her expertise and advocacy for them.” Steve Roselle

“Patty went over and above in helping us to find the perfect home! As we were living about four hours away, she would check out properties to see if they met the needs we had for a home, and have us drive over only if they met the criteria. Whenever we had a question, she was quick to respond with  an answer. We recommend her highly!”  Wendy Walsh

“We were very impressed with Patty Puckett’s knowledge. Her research skills helped by preventing us from investing in a home that had a a lot of problems when it came to the Septic Tank system. She listened to us and answered our questions immediately. Her knowledge was excellent when it came  to showing us all the homes for sale with the criteria we asked for..Her skills with the seller was excellent. We highly recommend her.”   Karen Lynaugh

My childhood years were spent growing up in small rural towns in Idaho and Nevada. Some of my fondest memories of those early years are the daily fishing trips my father took me on, sometimes walking up unscathed heavily wooded canyons. My family would hike into beautiful mountain lakes, build large log rafts to float on the water and sing in harmony around the campfire at night. We enjoyed wonderful meals from our daily catch of fresh rainbow trout and ample miner’s lettuce we’d collected as our salad. We explored old railroad and ghost towns, abandoned cabins, gold and silver mines, caves and shanty towns. We searched for arrowheads, mineral crystals, buried bottles and old rusty square nails. Nature and history fascinated me as a child and continues to do so today. At age 12 my family relocated to central California where I became a boy scout continuing my camping, hiking and fishing expeditions into California mountains and lakes.

It was around age 16 that I became interested in real estate. My first purchase was a steep forested lot in Cambria, California which I later traded as a down payment on a house. I then purchased a 10 acre parcel of land near Springville, California, and at age 17 purchased my first of many home rehabilitation projects in Bakersfield, California. Although I worked successfully in several other professions during my lifetime, I remember my mother continually telling me: “Alan, you should be selling real estate”.

In 1984, after working up the ranks in a large life insurance company, I became a Regional Vice President with that company and also began selling securities to investors. It was at this point I realized how much I enjoyed helping others build their investment portfolios. With my knowledge of real estate investing, in 1989, I made the difficult decision to leave my lucrative insurance and securities business, jumping headlong into real estate to sell property in the small forested coastal town of Cambria, California.

During my first 3 years in Cambria, I sold real estate with Century 21. I earned top honors as the top listing and top selling agent in my community. My personal production passed all previous listing and sales records on the Central Coast, and I was recognized as being at a production level that only the top 1% of real estate agents nationwide had reached. I worked with Century 21 until mid 1992, when I ventured out to open my first real estate brokerage, “Cambria Realty”.

In late 1995 I began reaching beyond the boundaries of the central coast, to list and sell properties in mountain and lake regions throughout northern California. I developed a Lot Flip Program which allowed me to sell over 1,000 lots in northern California lake communities to my real estate investor clients, who subsequently resold most of these lots, at much higher prices. I coached many of my clients on how to use their Self Directed Retirement Plans such as IRA’s, Sep IRA’s, Roth IRA’s and some 401K plans, to complete these lot purchases and resale’s, allowing them to defer and/or avoid paying taxes on their investment profits.

From my initial real estate brokerage office in Cambria, I opened two other successful real estate brokerages in northern California, including Manor Realty in Chester, and Foxwood Realty, Inc., inside the Foxwood subdivision at Lake Almanor, California.  My wife Cherie and I opened several successful businesses in Cambria, including two art galleries, and a wonderful retail store with a gourmet coffee bar. I also began consulting on land subdivisions and lot splits, RV Park projects and numerous other large and small redevelopment projects. I have consulted and been involved in selling hotels, restaurants, bakeries, a casino and numerous other businesses as well.  As a successful broker, during my 22 years in real estate, I have had the privilege of working on more than 200 new home and/or commercial construction projects, as well as being a principal partner on numerous subdivision mapping projects and/or lot split projects, and have partnered on several home renovation flip projects.

In 2007, Cherie and I decided to move to Grass Valley, California. During these past 4 years, I have continued helping real estate buyers and sellers purchase and sell properties throughout northern California. Through a discounted mortgage purchase and resale program, I have also helped over 20 homeowners stay in their homes that may have otherwise been displaced through foreclosure. From my current real estate brokerage office in Grass Valley, Sierra Heritage Realty, I provide real estate services to buyers and sellers in Nevada County, Sierra, Yuba, Placer, Butte and Plumas Counties.

Being familiar with development and zoning requirements in most small northern California mountain communities, gives me a huge advantage when working with buyers. I am a knowledgeable broker who understands the importance of good communication and staying current with where the market is moving. Through my web site:, I strive to provide buyers access to current articles and information that may affect their decisions and property purchase.

Sellers usually choose to work with me because they sense I truly care about what is important to them. I’m honest in my valuations.

Land Resume

Development Parcels Sold & Consulted on by Alan Savage:

 1992 – 1997 

East West Ranch (Fiscalinni Ranch) – I sold a 350 acre coastal ranch, in Cambria, California for $2,300,000. This old ranch consisted of 15 entitled lots. I worked with the developer for several years helping them acquire 16 additional small parcels that surrounded the ranch. As a fallback position, in case the developer were to be denied a rezone to complete their golf course subdivision project, using these additional parcels I’d sold them, to submit for a Lot Line Adjustment; the developer could then create 31 mini coastal ranches. Prior to completion of the developer’s lot line adjustment, they were presented a $12,000,000 Offer from the American Land Conservancy. The developer was able to complete the resale of this Ranch to the Land Conservancy in 2007.

1995 – 1997

Peachy Canyon Subdivision – The 323 acre Williams Ranch in Cambria, California is located adjacent to coastal Hwy 1 just north of Cambria. I sold the ranch to a private party for $2,350,000 who wanted to build his personal 10,000 square foot residence on one of the four underlying entitled parcels. After helping with a lot line adjustment and getting water right entitlements from the local Cambria Water District, I then resold two of the remaining adjusted parcels for 1 ½ times the original cost of the entire property. The owner then built his ocean view home on one of the two remaining parcels. A few years later I worked with the owner and an appraisal company to set a value for the remaining 130 acre parcel (based on its ability to be subdivided into 5 Acre parcels.) We then traded a conservation easement to a conservancy group, for approximately $7,500,000 in tax write offs for the owner.

2004 – 2005

Siskiyou Lake Highlands – Representing a small group of Investors, I sold the developers remaining 14 lots in this golf course community in Mt. Shasta. We had the lots cleared of brush and resold them all within the 18 months at an increased resale price of 50% to 100%.

2004 – 2007

Little Bear Road – This was a 75 acre river front parcel in Blairsden/Graeagle, California. I purchased this parcel with a friend for $650,000. We struggled for a year, trying to get our 7 lot subdivision approved. Already having two underlying entitled parcels, we decided to forgo our subdivision plans and instead offered to donate 2 slivers of land located at the edge of our property, to the State Forest Service. – The Forest Service owned a small corner of land at one end of our river front parcel. Donating these two slivers of land, identifying each by a Meets and Bounds Survey, with each sliver being donated separately to the State Forest Service, we were allowed to simply do a lot line adjustment from these two newly created donation parcels to complete a new 4 lot split. We then resold the 4 new parcels for $2,190,000 over the next 2 ½ years.

2004 – 2007

Old College Tract – To a handful of my investors I sold 9 of the original developers 11 remaining lots in this 27 lot subdivision which overlooks Huntington Lake, California. We waited for the developer to sell his remaining two lots before we began reselling each of these lots for at least double what we purchased them for. We continued doing this purchase and resale program, throughout 27 northern California mountain communities totaling close to 1,000 lot flips from 2005 through 2007.

2005 – 2006

Lake Almanor West – I sold the last 12 developer lots in this subdivision to several of my investors, who cleaned the lots of low lying limbs & brush. I then resold them for approximately double the price paid, within 12 months.

2005 – 2007

Lake Almanor Homes – I sold a previously listed subdivision parcel in Chester, California, for $625,000, to one of my developers. This property had an expired Tentative Map for 76 – 1/3 Acre home sites. I consulted on pricing, lot phasing and new home development standards. My developer built and sold several homes before I resold the remaining 57 lots for $2,950,000 to an out of the area contractor.

2005 – 2007

Shiloh Ranch, LLC – Was the founding member (CEO) of a 550 acre ranch parcel in Tulare County. We purchased this property at $650,000 and prepared to submit an initial tentative map for 115 parcels. Prior to submission of the tentative map, our LLC was traded at a value of $2,850,000.

 2005 – 2007

Foxwood Subdivision – After selling approximately 140 lots in less than 4 weeks throughout the Lake Almanor basin in 2005, I was contacted by the retiring broker for the Foxwood Subdivision (to see if my buyers may be interested in purchasing a package of 10 Foxwood lots from the developer. After selling these lots in less than 2 weeks, the developer offered to let me sell 1/3 of his project (165 Lots – Cedarwood Village) to one of my central coast building contractors. This would help reduce the existing lot inventory for Foxwood and begin seeding the project with new homes to sell. I sold the project to a contractor from Templeton, California (who was also a pilot.) We flew to Lake Almanor each week with my Contractor to oversee the project. Within a couple months I was asked to be the broker for Foxwood & Cedarwood, overseeing all lot and home sales. I did this for approx. 2 ½ years. During my first year as Broker for Foxwood Realty, Inc., my new Brokerage sold over 100 new subdivision lots at Foxwood. During my 2 ½ year brokerage oversight at Foxwood, I acted as a consultant on lot phasing and CC&R development, helped determine lot lay out, consulted on subdivision amenities and pricing at each released phase of the project. I also helped develop a powerful subdivision web site for the project, which still is used by the Development to promote the project.

2005 – 2008

Hamilton Branch RV Park – I and a handful of my investor clients, purchased a lake front (recreation zoned) parcel of land in Lake Almanor, for $650,000. I spearheaded a redevelopment plan for this parcel as a new RV Park. We completed installation of a new leach field and developed a tentative layout for 16 RV spots, including a club house and new improved boat dock. After completing the initial septic design and curtain drain installation, we resold this property & project for $950,000.

2006 – 2007

Rod & Reel Trailer Park – I represented the seller only, in the sale of this 23 unit trailer park in Cambria, California which I sold for $2,350,000. This property was located on 2.75 Acres of prime commercial/residential zoned land on Main Street, near Cambria’s West Village. After escrow closing, the buyer approached me to consult with him, the County Planning Department and local water district, on items related to this property’s potential redevelopment as 2 commercial (street front) units and several river front residential condominiums.

2006 – 2008

Rocky Ledge Estates – Level 126 acre parcel near Burney, California. I sold this parcel to a developer client for $725,000. I consulted on completing required soils tests and the final map for the project. I helped sell the first 5 lots in this subdivision, allowing the Developer to recoup most of his original purchase price. These sales seeded the project with “sold signs”, so I felt comfortable to turn the subdivision lot sales over to a local broker in Burney, CA.

2006 – 2009

Timber Ridge Estates – I purchased a 13.89 Acre parcel of subdivision land in Lake Almanor with a couple of my friends. This land was zoned for high density. My partners and I have submitted a tentative map for the future subdivision of this parcel into 54 lots.


Hi Alan,

“I wanted to drop you a note saying thanks for working diligently to sell our Lake Wildwood house.  As you know we had the house listed with another agency for more than 1 1/2 years with only two low-ball offers.  Once you came on board and put your marketing strategy in place we had our first viable offer in a matter of a few weeks.

Although these buyers decided not to purchase the house you were determined to sell our property.  Again, after putting your marketing plan back to work we had a buyer soon thereafter who eventually followed through and closed escrow.  While we agree that the escrow was frustrating at times you kept us focused on the outcome not the process.

Again, thanks for your extraordinary efforts and insight.  I’m certain that without you as our agent the house would still be on the market.”

Best Regards,

Tom Spinetti

“I tried to sell a 10 acre parcel 12 miles outside of Grass Valley, Ca. for about 1 1/2 years using the newspaper and internet to no avail. A friend told me to talk to Alan Savage which was the best thing I did to sell the property.  Alan took my listing and sold my property  for $10,000 more than I was asking.   Alan walked me through all of the paper work so I felt comfortable with the contract adding what I wanted. Working very hard he sold my property within 2 weeks.

It was very nice to work with Alan and his wife, I will use them again for any other properties I sell.  And in the end I ended up with 2 new friends, there aren’t many people I can say that about.  They are about a lot more than just selling land and or property, they are good people.”
