Congratulations to my buyer who just closed escrow on this adorable 2 bedroom, 1 bath, 986 square foot split level home in Chabot Park!

This property was a probate sale and needed some updating. But my client is excited for the improvement projects ahead and opportunity to make it his own. With the help of his flexibility and patience, I was able to guide him through the probate process to successfully purchase this home under list price in the East Oakland Hills!

History of Novato - Part 1 - Downtown

As I sell real estate throughout Marin County, I often come across a buyer that is reluctant to take a look into Novato. Not because of the commute but usually because they have some notion that it isn’t much of a town. Since I live in Novato and specialize in the area, I feel inclined to share with you what makes this once bustling town that became a super sleepy town, but now on the rise… great place to live and raise a family. I also want to share the details of the immense change that has occurred over the years and what the future seems to hold for this great community.
