Fred The Phone Man is a communications business with our main headquarters located in beautiful Sonoma County, in Northern California, about 1 hour north of San Francisco, in a small town called Cotati just south of Santa Rosa. We currently service most of northern California from San Jose to Sacramento to Sonoma County and everywhere in between. We dispatch certified technicians from multiple satellite offices throughout.



We have been family owned and operated for 30+ years (Est. 1985). The original owner, 35 year Pac Bell retiree Clarence "Fred" Emmert, retired in 1998 leaving the business to his son, Rowan Fredrick Emmert. Rowan continues to carry the values of family oriented customer service for the community adding the latest technology as the industry evolves and always having quality technical and installation services. We look forward to having you be part of the family.
