Barry Scales

Broker/Owner (DRE#00451887)
Before I became a Realtor I was a buyer and customer of Pine Mountain Lake Realty, that was 37 years ago. Thirty years in the insurance business served me well in the aspects of attention to detail and people skills. I have experience as the past President of the Multiple Listing Board, Past President of the Rotary. Being a self motivated individual with a strong work ethic I learned quickly that retirement was not for me. For the last 17 years plus I have been employing my business world skills in real estate. Employ me to assist you with a sale or purchase of real estate and you will be pleased to discover that I will treat your transaction as if it were my own.

Elaine North

Real Estate Agent (01047723)
Moving to Groveland in 1988 From San Diego Ca. was my dream come true! Living in Beautiful Pine Mountain Lake with Yosemite as my back yard is amazing. My husband Dennis & I enjoyed raising our two girls in Pine Mountain Lake so after they graduated from High school we purchased A ranch in Groveland where I was in my glory, breeding and training horses and horse camping all over the Sierras. Selling Real Estate has been the icing on the cake helping other families buy and sell their homes to fit their family their needs. I love what I do because it’s my passion and pleasure to serve others.

Patricia Beggs, Realtor/Owner 209-840-2293 (DRE#01339347)

​Like so many of us in Pine Mountain Lake, we migrated here from the Bay Area. Selling property in the East Bay, we decided to look for a weekend cabin to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. After a few weekends at Pine Mountain Lake we decided to just make it our home. Pine mountain Lake fulfilled our dreams in recreational opportunities but more than that it offered peace and tranquility. Our great joy is to help others make their dreams come true as it has ours.

Eleda Carlson

My name is Eleda Carlson and I’ve have been in and around real estate and construction all my life. I am a Tuolumne County native, born in Sonora and growing up just outside of Columbia in Shaw’s Flat. As a youngster, and the eldest of five daughters, I tagged along behind my father watching him work. Dad was a general building contractor with a reputation for building a quality home. A pick-up truck full of lumber and ladders became our family’s “recreation vehicle”.
I guess you can say that real estate is in my blood. Building lots, property development and new and resale construction are close to my heart and it is only natural that my interests have led me to a profession in “real estate”. I didn’t become a general contractor, but I did inherit my father’s love for buildings and property.
Licensed as a full-time real estate professional since 1978, I continue to work with Buyers and Sellers alike. There is great satisfaction in introducing visitors to the area as “new neighbors” or in helping a seller that is preparing for a new adventure. After more than 44 years of working with Buyers and Sellers, my enthusiasm has not diminished. I strive to keep an eye on the present while looking forward to the future.

Linda Willhite

As a Groveland/Pine Mountain Lake long time resident, I bring a vast knowledge of the area, having listed and sold many homes more than once over the years. I am passionate about finding a client an investment property, a lot to build on, or a dream home, and work tirelessly for my sellers throughout the listing and selling process.
I came to this area over 30 years ago to visit family and never left! I was fortunate enough to find an exceptional lot and oversee the building of my forever dream home.
Having obtained my Real Estate License in 1990 and my Broker’s License in 2008, I am able to skillfully negotiate a Listing or a Purchase Agreement on my client’s behalf.
I’ve received several achievement awards throughout the years, as well as held numerous board positions with the Hetch Hetchy Association of Realtors. Most importantly is my ability to lead clients through what can be a stressful time, absorbing much of the stress and allowing them a positive home transaction experience.
You are welcome to call me before you start your journey in Groveland/Pine Mountain Lake. I will always answer or return your calls and texts promptly. That is my promise to you.
I measure my success by only one standard; the complete satisfaction of my clients.
