Our Story

Brent and Wendy Gorris started investing in Rental Property in Sebastopol in 2000. Our sons Neal and Tanner have both grown up in the business and worked hard to help make it what it has become: a family owned business that cares for your investment with the same attention to detail that we treat our own.

As the years progressed we invested again in Sonoma County and eventually out of state. Brent has renovated each property we've purchased. In 2006 in addition to managing our own properties, Wendy started helping a friend manage her portfolio. Others started asking for help, so Wendy obtained her Real Estate Salesperson & Broker licenses in 2009. Porch Light was launched in 2010. 

We enjoy living in Sebastopol, CA and being a part of our community. Brent teaches Industrial Arts at a local school and manages Maintenance Operations at Porch Light. Our dogs are a constant source of joy and most days they come to work at Porch Light for the payment of treats. Sometimes even the cat shows up!

As a company we invest in people, handling our clients’ business to the best of our ability and encouraging our employees to grow professionally while maintaining a healthy work/life balance.
