Marin's own Three Twins Ice Cream celebrates 7 years


As a Marinite and ice cream lover, I was happy to celebrate the 7th Anniversary of organic ice cream maker, Three Twins, this week, with cones for our kids and several pints to take home. 

Three Twins got its start in San Rafael, in a small shop in Terra Linda, to be exact.  I remember before we had kids, going to the shop with my husband just weeks, or maybe it was days even, after it first opened.  It was love at first bite, as the ice cream is delicious - the best ice cream I'd had in memory.  We loved all of the flavors, from the original and enticing ones like Chocolate Orange Confetti, Roasted Peach and Dad's Cardamom, to their versions of the classics, such...

2640 Warring, Berkeley - SOLD

condo in berkeley sold by East Bay Modern Real Estate.

I had the pleasure to represent my out-of-town client in the purchase of this very stylish flat in a hip neighborhood near the campus of UC Berkeley.  Located at 2640 Warring in Berkeley, this charming 2-bedroom/1-bath condo was recently renovated and features oversized rooms, a private deck overlooking a commonly shared backyard, extra large windows, assigned storage, and 2 off-street parking spaces!

With the buyer primarily living across country, and searching for a new pad to use as a 2nd home as well as a study pad for her daughter attending UC Berkeley School of Law, "modern representation" was essential in this transaction.  After a couple of rounds of getting outbid on other condos in the area, and just when the buyer was thinking of giving up on finding a place, this charmer...
