Get to Know Me

Hilary Thomas is a dedicated, enthusiastic, and energetic real estate agent who is genuinely there for her clients, no matter what. A worldly woman with international living experience, Hilary was raised on the east coast, attended college in the southwest, and later set down roots on the west coast in the beautiful town of Petaluma. With its proximity to wine country, the coast, Lake Tahoe, and San Francisco, Petaluma is a hotbed of cultural diversity and creativity. Hilary has worked tirelessly to help connect people with their dream home in this gorgeous landscape.

When you hire Hilary, you are working with someone who will always put your needs first. Every transaction is a unique puzzle she excels in solving, and Hilary loves helping clients achieve their real estate goals. Throughout her years in the business, Hilary’s infectious personality has helped her forge meaningful connections with other agents and vendors. Her clients benefit from these sources and the robust network it provides. Her clients attest she is the perfect combination of therapist, cheerleader, and real estate professional.

Hilary’s communicative and empathetic nature makes her a perfect match for the seasoned seller or first time buyer. She’s accessible and approachable to clients new to the buying and selling process. She’s always happy to break things down and comb through the details with her clients to ensure they understand every part of the process. At the same time, Hilary’s in-depth knowledge of the Bay area, and beyond, makes her the perfect agent for second home and vacation home buyers.

You will frequently find Hilary engaging with the local community and doing volunteer work at senior centers, her children’s PTA, and around town at any event that needs her. A wine and cheese aficionado, Hilary loves touring the farmer’s markets and fairs to discover seasonal bounty, sample wines, and partake in the local arts, dining, music and social scene! Sonoma County is such a vibrant place to live with endless options for you and your family.

Hilary and her family enjoy hiking, exploring, and, especially, sailing together. A fantastic first mate, Hilary gets a thrill like no other from feeling the sea breeze sweep through her hair. Standup paddle boarding on the Petaluma River or other local waterways give her the opportunity to relax and enjoy the beauty of our incredible surroundings.. She is immensely proud of her family and credits them with helping her maintain her upbeat attitude. One thing you can always expect from her is an unwavering positivity –– she has perfected the art of turning lemons into limoncello!
