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...
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. We had been out to see several homes over the last year and it wasn't until I found this gorgeous town house off the market that they finally put in an offer. With a baby on the way, they can turn the key and move right in to this upgraded, easy living home! Located in the lovely Green Oaks complex, it is located close to hiking trails, Scotty's Market, great schools and the complex comes with a pool and clubhouse.

I am proud to announce that I just sold this beautiful, loft style townhome in lovely Quail Ridge. My empty nester buyers are so excited to call this gorgeous unit their home after living all over the world. Now that their son had settled away from home, they were ready to settle down for good. It was a true pleasure finding them their home off the market by writing letters to the complex to seek out a potential seller. I may be the new queen of off-market sales this year!
This home is beautifully appointed with high-end finishes, 2 bedrooms, plus an office and also a large bonus room off of the 2 car garage. Quail Ridge is a gated community which offers beautiful views, peace and serrenity, a club house, pool and ideal location in San Rafael within close proximity to Northgate Mall. This home...
I am so pleased to announce that my sellers of this home received multiple offers and closed for $40,000 over their asking price of $865,000. In partnership with my client, I staged, prepared and marketed this listing to attract the most qualified buyers possible. I only offer full service to my sellers which includes a long list of items that prove a solid sale for top dollar! Yes, the sellling market in Marin is currently strong, but it is still neccessary to get maximum reach and make the property shine through top notch preparation and marketing. By doing so, we attracted a super strong buyer from out of the area. The closing price of $905,000 breaks the record for a 3 bedroom home sale in Hamilton since 2006.
The Novato Farmer's Market is held on Tuesday from 4-7pm and is located downtown on Grant Avenue between 1st and 4th streets. Open from May until the end of September. Visiting the market not only supports local businesses in Novato but provides a great opportunity to sample locally grown and organic products and produce. It is a great place to enjoy the afternoon with family...there are jumpy houses and pony rides for the children. Often times there is also great, live music. Stay for a while and grab an easy dinner to go from the rotisserie chicken vendor (a favorite) or from a local restaurant! There is always a plethora of yummy samples from gourmet shops to try - no doubt you will leave with something special. Flowers, produce and gourmet eats - it is truly a great...

I had the pleasure of working with my colleague,
Marin Modern Realtor Enrica Ramm to create a perfect match with her buyer and
my seller. My client, wanted to retire
and move to her home in Nevada. Enrica's client, priced out of the rental
market where she lived in Larkspur, was ready to become a homeowner. My client
preferred to sell "off-market" so when I told Enrica about 307 Silvio Lane and
showed her some photos she immediately contacted her client and showed her the condo. It was exactly what her client had been looking for so they
wrote an offer that...
The close of 633 Tamalpais Avenue
is a very happy ending for my buyer clients.
Back in 2006, when I was selling their home in San Rafael, this very
house came on the market and they wanted to buy it. Timing was not right as we still needed to
close their home in San Rafael in order for them to purchase. In the end they purchased a different home in
Marin after selling. Fast forward nine
years later...633 Tamalpais Avenue comes on the market again. This time, my client was able to buy without
selling their current home and went for it!
Now they are so excited to make this move into their dream home which
was truly meant to be theirs.
