Mr. Bates is the owner and founder of The Bates Group of Companies, LLC. The Bates family has been in business in Sonoma County since 1953. Mr. Bates' father and grandfather developed Kelly Road, a private 28-mile road, which extends from Cloverdale, CA to the coast, and subsequently logged three (3) billion board feet of timber; enough to build every residential unit in San Francisco five times over.

Logging lead to construction, and in 1981 Mr. Bates started his own construction and development company. Through the early 1980's The Bates Group of Companies, LLC stayed active in construction by offering equity sharing to their home-buyers and stayed profitable by maintaining low overhead, controlling costs and by executing their work on schedule.

Having built hundreds of homes and developed or mapped over 2,000 residential home sites Mr. Bates is familiar with the major builders, suppliers and the marketplace in his market areas.

Mr. Bates is also active in the community. He is a past Director of the Home Builders Association (ten years running). He is a past Board Member of the Sonoma County Arts Council, to which he was appointed by a County Supervisor. Mr. Bates was presented the G.A.I.N. Program’s Most Prized Supporter Award, having given generously of his time to that program. He is married and has three daughters and a young son.
