124 Park Place, Petaluma, Ca. 94954

Petaluma is hot these days. The train is coming this year. Downtown is vibrant. The restaurants rival the wine country but are significantly less expensive.

I have a condominium  off North McDowell Blvd on the Eastside. Check out the virtual tour at: 124 Park Place 3-D Tour

It has a new kitchen and bath. There are three bedrooms and the master is quite large with a walk in closet. There is both a living room AND a den. Park Place is sunny, clean and best of all QUIET considering its proximity to East Washington and the 101. The courtyard in the back is a small sanctuary with a mediterreanean feel to it and a side gate onto the front. Low HOAs.

Come see it Sunday April 3 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. or call me for a private tour: Anastasia...

Eichler Sales Record Set in San Rafael

Renee Adelmann set a sales record for Eichler homes in San Rafael. 

I'm delighted to announce that my Eichler listing at 2 Mount Darwin in San Rafael just set an all-time record for price per square foot paid for an Eichler home in our community ($917.99 per sq ft; $1.5 million paid for this 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 1,634 square foot home).

I enjoyed working with my seller clients to prepare, stage, professionally photograph, and aggressive market their home (both online and offline).   The home received incredible exposure, mutliple offers, and sold for $1,500,000, or $150,000 over the original asking price.

If you are interested in selling your home for top dollar, let me put my experience and unmatched results to work for...

San Anselmo Bakery and Cafe, MH Bread & Butter


Near my home in San Anselmo, at 101 San Anselmo Avenue, is the burgeoning success story of MH Bread & Butter, the dream child of owner Nathan Yanko and his wife Devon. Formerly a master baker at the famed Tartine Bakery in San Francisco, Nathan wanted to open a cafe that would feature fresh, healthy food at reasonable prices. The inspiration (and ultimately, the name!)  came from his great, great grandfather, Maximillian Hirtreiter, a German immigrant who settled in New York City, opened the famous MJ Hirtreiter Patisserie, and later married and raised a large family with his childhood sweetheart, who came to New York to...

An Odd Little Tiburon Factoid


Just past the town of Tiburon there is a stone tower on the water’s edge. I have stood in this tower and never knew its origin, simply assuming it was a decorative relic installed by the town’s forefathers.This curious structure was actually erected by a private landowner, with a vision toward creating a planned community, “Lyford’s Hygeia”, dedicated to “healthful living”. Hygeia means “Goddess of Health”.
