LOVELY Condo... Just Listed: 100 Marin Center Dr. #36, San Rafael

I love selling properties where the pride of ownership shines through!  Some people have so much integrity around their homes, they treat them like a valuable asset and make sure to keep everything in fine order.  This gem has been well-cared for and it shows.  In fact, the whole complex seems meticulous.  The shower house by the poolside is positively sterile!

This is a two bedroom unit with one full and one half bath.  It's an end unit, so no neighbors on three sides! There is a large tree offering greenery and privacy to the west, and a planted hillside greeting the owners as they come and go.  One of the owners is an artist.  I just LOVE what she did to adorn the master bed:mcp_master_-_copy_423

Come check it out, this Sunday, 9/27, between 1-4.

The Importance of Staging & Professional Photography

Being A Proud Family of Lycee Frances de San Francisco!

One of the major concerns that parents have when it comes to moving to SF, is how to land on a good school for their kids. It is not only challenging to find a good school that fits for you, but also to get him or her accepted to the school you apply. My husband I were one of those anxious parents, and luckily this year, our son is admitted to our dream school, Lycee Frances de San Francisco(LFSF)! We are so excited for this new adventure for our son, and wanted to share our experience with the school here in case anyone is interested.
