For the last 15 years, Hans has been working diligently with others to build a year round economy in Manzanita, his favorite Oregon coastal town. Hans served on the board of directors of the Rinehart Clinic for nine years, a local non-profit. He has also spent over four years working on the Manzanita Planning Commission and was elected to the Manzanita City Council in November of 2012, re-elected November 2016.

Hans has a solid understanding of the challenges and opportunities present in relocating to the coast and decisions involved in investing in vacation property and maintaining a second home. 

Hans's Testimonials

When we interviewed Hans in his office we felt very comfortable with his attitude and easy going manner. . He looked at our photos, then came to visit our home. After Hans listened to our thoughts about the home we had designed and built years ago he was willing to list at what WE thought the house was worth even though he warned us we might have to wait for that one specific buyer. Hans had open houses for Realtors. He called us after each time he had a single showing. We always felt he was reporting it to us straight. Our strongest statement is that we know we can trust Hans. We consider Hans Tonjes to be a very capable broker.

Hans Tonjes made our beach house dream a reality, guiding us through a complicated transaction quickly and completely.. He was a real pleasure to work with—professional, attentive, knowledgeable and cordial.

Bruce and Judy B.

Hans is well informed about the local real estate market.. He is focused on the needs of the client and works diligently to ensure the sale closes. You can trust him to give you candid advice on options possible to close a transaction and how to present terms palatable to both seller and buyer. Hans is thoughtful as well as an excellent listener with great retention and follow through. I endorse Hans whole heartily and found that he took the stress out of buying real estate and made the process exciting and fun.
