8 Mount Foraker Court, San Rafael - Just Sold


Nothing can take the place of persistence and the new owners of the wonderful Eichler at 8 Mount Foraker Court in Upper Lucas Valley, San Rafael are thrilled that they kept up their search.

Like most buyers, they had made offers on many houses and were disappointed when other buyers overbid their offer or could offer that well-respected commodity - cash. But that did not deter them; we kept looking and it took well over a year to find their castle.

Though the house needs some work, the buyers could see the value. The 4-bedroom, 2-bath home has a remodeled kitchen and two upgraded bathrooms...

32 San Jose Court, Walnut Creek - Sold!


I am happy to announce the sale of 32 San Jose Court in the Rancho San Miguel Eichler neighborhood of Walnut Creek, which closed escrow at $885,000.

This stunning A-frame, atrium Eichler has 4 bedrooms and 2 baths and is set on a double-sized, flat lot with a private well, and sparkling pool, on a serene cul-de-sac. It was recently updated with new kitchen cabinetry in high-gloss white, stainless appliances with an induction range, modernized suspension globe lighting, VCT flooring, HVAC, refinished/oiled original mahogany interior wall paneling, exterior painting, and fresh landscaping and fencing in front and back.  And, because we caught the property mid-rehab, and off-market, the lucky buyers were able to make some customizations to the final project. Awesome home for an awesome...
