    "I've always believed you get out of life what you put into it!" says Karl. "Rewards do come from maintaining a good work ethic, taking responsibility seriously and keeping yourself motivated."

    Karl has come a long way from his birthplace of Chicago, Illinois. As a young man, he sought "greener and warmer pastures" -- so-to-speak -- and found himself in the east Bay area of San Francisco. While attending college, he met his darling wife, Victoria.

    One summer, early in their marriage, the Nettgens decided to go camping in state parks along the Oregon Coast. After spending some time in the Gold Beach area, they could not get the place out of their minds. The couple purchased undeveloped Ocean view real estate and came up to work on it whenever possible.

    Each visit their Gold Beach Oregon land felt more and more right. Having to turn back for the east bay of San Francisco became increasingly difficult.

    "Coming north, we could feel the tension leave us. The ocean front lifestyle, ocean views, fresh air, small town atmosphere and friendliness wrapped around us like a comfortable blanket. Returning south, the stress and traffic became unbearable," recalls Karl.

    The decision was made to take the risk, pull up stakes and live the dream in the Gold Beach Oregon South Coast community. Karl and Victoria put their work ethics to the test and dug in. He soon found a fit in real estate helping others share the dream of this Gold Beach community life style, and she started a landscaping maintenance business.

    The Nettgens still live on that same property and have recently celebrated their 25th anniversary. Now empty nesters, they live with their pals Bailey the dog, Whisper the cat, many dreams have come true. Amidst their busy lives, the family takes advantage of the many nearby opportunities to camp, fish and walk on the beach. Victoria tends to her thriving gardens.

    "You couldn't drag me away kicking and screaming!" says Karl, grinning from ear to ear. "Gold Beach Oregon is truly the Mayberry RFD of the Oregon Coast."

    Karl is a pro. Keeps everyone in the loop but doesn't sugar coat ANYTHING! He's really kind. I believe he deserves every penny he earns, never pushing responsibility for details on to the sellers or buyers. He's a rare find in the business. Would do business with him again gladly (as a seller). And it's not just me. I'm in a business that I deal with locals daily. His reputation is excellent in Curry County. ~ Marna Williams, Gold Beach

    When I inquired over the internet about a property and the company sent it out to three agents in different realty agents, Karl Nettgen got back to us within 15 minutes, one agent took a day and one never got back to us. Karl also spent an incredible amount of time with us even though we were a year out in the process of moving and we didn't know if we would ever move to this area. Karl Nettgen spent an incredible amount of time with us before and during the process which in the end spanned over two years. Karl kept us informed on any house that came on the market that we might be interested in and he spent several days going to many homes over a 60 mile area. We felt we were able to establish a relationship with him even though he nor us knew if we would ever move to the area. Karl is very honest and straight forward and we consider him a friend now. The process was very smooth. We would definitely recommend Karl Nettgen if you are looking for an agent who listens to you and really cares that you find your forever home. ~ Marianne & Gary Baxter, Brookings, OR

    Our dream was to find the perfect retirement home on the southern Oregon/Northern California coast but we were not looking forward to managing this process remotely from Seattle. After finding what looked like the "right house" south of Gold Beach Oregon, we had the great luck of finding and working with Karl Nettgan. From the onset, Karl impressed us with his knowledge and authenticity. He immediately understood that this seemed to be the right place for us and answered every question or concern we had about this home and the community. Over the course of this transaction, we were amazed at Karl's responsiveness. We would send a question and within minutes, we got the answer we needed. Interspersed with these answers were additional insights to why we would like Gold Beach. All of his contacts were very professional, but he always exuded warmth and humor. Karl lead us to some possible volunteer opportunities and recognized early on that we were interested in being a part of, and giving back to this community. It was apparent that he loved the area....and that was what we were looking for as well. We have no hesitation in recommending Karl. He did an amazing job for us and he is someone we will look forward to running into at the post office, grocery store and local restaurants. We have found our perfect retirement home. ~ Tom & Gary - Seattle Washington and soon to be Gold Beach Oregon!
    Karl was there for us at every stage of the sales process. He answered all our questions in a very timely professional manner and always made time for us in a very hectic busy time of the market. Thank you Karl! ~ Mark and Diane Myers. Gold Beach Or
    Karl is a good man. ~ Jeff & Debbie Richter
