San Marin Mid-Year Update

The northern end of Marin, specifically San Marin is the most affordable neighborhood for buyers still eager to live in Marin.  As home values continue to rise, it is still possible to find a lovely home under the 1 million dollar mark.  Take a peek at the home sales from January through the end of July.  Your dollar goes the furthest in San Marin of any other city in Marin...and that may not be for much longer with all the exciting developments in the works which will make Novato the hot spot to live - ideally located between San Francisco, the gorgeous wine country and also the coastal region with sleepy towns like Point Reyes and Marshall close by.  You are literally a 20-60 minute car ride to any of these beautiful places.  How lucky am I to live here, where the weather is the best, the people are down to earth and every convenience is available at my fingertips.  I tell you...if you are still looking to buy, get in while you can - Novato is the next best place to live!  Well, at...

152 Rancheria Rd., Kentfield - JUST SOLD!

This beautiful 2,700 SF home, nestled in the Kentfield Woodlands and with views of San Rafael and the ocean just closed escrow today at $2,000,000. Unfortunately I never got the chance to showcase this home or hold an open house. While in the middle of doing some repair work we received an offer that my seller accepted. So we never had the chance to replace the carpets, stage the house or even have photos taken, but needless to say, both seller and buyers are pleased and I'm happy to have been able to facilitate this sale!

Congratulations to my buyers that just closed escrow on 2526 Duke Avenue in Richmond's Rollingwood neighborhood!

The neighborhood is conveniently located near shopping, parks, and freeway access -- this was a great value for $420,000!

San Anselmo Downtown Welcomes Amphora Nueva!


 My daily walks usually take me through Downtown San Anselmo at some point along the way. And for a while now, there have been obvious signs of construction at 429 San Anselmo Ave., just next door to Ludwigs Fine Wine and Spirits. But with the windows covered, it has been difficult to divine what was being brought to life---- until about a week ago.  The door was open; there were shelves, containers, counters, and workmen putting on finishing touches under the direction of a young woman, Claire Bradley, who is one of the owners. (That's Claire in the picture, taking a short break to talk with me about her new store, Amphora Nueva). Amphora Nueva is the third Bay Area location for the Bradley...

415 Sylvia Way, San Rafael JUST SOLD!


I am so excited for my buyers that closed on 415 Sylvia Way, San Rafael today!  I met this darling couple at an open house over a year ago.
