Green Eco Home Improvements

The new year usually brings resolution about cutting spending. Consider including home energy efficiency upgrades – a decision that will save money and increase your comfort for as long as you live in your house – among your 2019 resolutions. Here are three ways to get started:

  1.      Energy Audit. Energy auditors test your house to see where you’re losing the most energy and recommend upgrades to improve energy savings and comfort.

  2.      Budget and plan....

1077 W. California, Mill Valley -First Open House - Sept. 30th 1-4 p.m.

Sleek & Modern with Sensational Views

Sleek, modern, sexy with high-end finishes, and environmentally friendly! Once an ugly duckling this home has been transformed into a show stopper. Every surface has been touched. This completely remodeled 2 bed/1 bath Mill Valley home with unobstructed views of the Marin Headlands and valley below packs a punch with a large 2-car garage and SunPower solar panels with 2-240v outlets for Electric Vehicle charging.

The open floor plan, wall of windows and large decks are part of a larger drama where sun drenched days can quickly change to wind and swirling fog that clings to the hills to spectacular sunsets. You won’t want to leave home when you can...

25 Canyon Rd. San Anselmo - Just Sold

25 Canyon San Anselmo sold by Ary Assadi

So excited to get my clients into this beautiful 3BD/2.5BA home at just under 2,100 SF. Built in 1996 this home is absolutely turn-key. The inspections came back with absolutely no issues and the home is located in the most serene woodsy setting in the hills of San Anselmo. We initially began our search for homes in the East Bay, but quickly realized that there were betty deals to have had in Marin. Taking advantage of the slight summertime lull in the market we quickly snatched up this home for $1,200,000. I couldn't be more overjoyed for my clients who now have their new home and enough space to welcome their second child in a couple of months!

A Low Cost Idea for Converting Separate Living Quarters in your Home

Good news for Marin County homeowners! If you have an extra bedroom and bath in your home more than likely you can now convert that space into separate living quarters at a very low cost. Junior Accessory Dwelling Units (JADU) is a new concept that allows you to create a legal rental unit in your home that you can use to generate income, house a loved one or accommodate a caregiver/au pair. And the best part is that many Marin cities  such as Novato, San Rafael and ...

Real Estate in the Forbes Area, San Rafael, Marin County. CA.

The Forbes neighborhood in San Rafael has long been one of Marin's most sought-after residential neighborhoods.

Located within a few minutes walking distance from down town, it provides an unmatched convenience and life-style opportunity for its residents.

The wide streets are lined with beautiful, mature trees which crowns meet and create magical, green, shady "tunnels". Lush greenery and flowers spill over the white picket fences adorning the sidewalks. Victorian homes, Craftsmans, cottages and bungalows all create a welcoming palette for the eye. And in the midst of everything is the wonderful "West End Nursery" located. Who would not want to live in such a beautiful neighborhood?

Over the years, I've sold numerous homes in this area and would welcome an opportunity to assist you with your home purchase (or sale) if you are interested in this area of San Rafael.

These are a few snapshots I took earlier...

Best hiking in Marin County, CA.


Hiking is one of the most peaceful sports activities you can do. What is nicer than getting exercise without noticing and being surrounded by family and friends while enjoying some striking views served up by mother nature?!

Marin County is a fantastic place for hiking. Majestic Mt Tam is almost constantly present - close up or in the far distant. Thanks to Marin's Mediterranean climate the hiking is pleasant all year round and the nature is green and lush all year round. 

You can pick and chose between hikes with panoramic Pacific Ocean views, or you can walk in the dense...

There is an aging population in Marin County and sooner or later the "family" home needs to be sold. I have been helping clients, for over 15 years, sell their parents and grandparents home when the time comes.

Plus, as I am in the process of selling my family's home of 56 years, I have in-depth insight and wisdom to offer...
