My clients just became the newest owners of this lovely family home at 59 Alconbury Way in Novato's Hamilton Field. In a convenient commute location, close to stores, restaurants, and services, and featuring 3 bedrooms, two baths, and a large two-car garage, it has everything they need. They're looking forward to moving in and becoming a part of this quiet, well-maintained neighborhood. If you're looking for your next home and an innovative, persistent advocate to help with your search, call me; I'll look forward to hearing from you.
I represented the buyers in the purchase of this this remodeled, vintage, 4 bedroom, 3 bath home on a street-to-street lot in the desirable Santa Margarita section of San Rafael. In a fantastic commute location, close to both Downtown San Rafael and San Anselmo, its amenities include hardwood floors, a chef's kitchen, and a beautiful garden for entertaining or just enjoying days at home. My clients are delighted with their new home, which they were able to find and purchase in under 60 days in this very competitive market, after successfully competing against multiple-offers.

1404 Buchanan St. in Novato CA 94947 has SOLD! This single level 4/2 house fit the wish list for a lot of buyers; my one and only Sunday open house was packed! We received six offers, all over asking, and closed for $41,000 over the ask price. The market for single level homes under $800,000 is huge. However, even in this hot market proper presentation and stellar marketing is a must.
I meet with my seller clients way before the house hits the market and make a thorough to-do list which almost always includes new paint, new carpet, yard clean-up, repairs deep cleaning etc. Then the home is staged, professionally photographed and extensively marketed. Savvy sellers realize that money spent upfront reaps huge rewards...

Starting on June 30th and running to July 4th is the 75th Marin County Fair in San Rafael.I love the fair! Especially the bands that play outdoors.
This year there is also the Global Marketplace, plus the usual art, photography, and a fireworks display every night! Another favorite of mine are the 4-H farm animal competitions. My kids gravitate towards the rides but I think it is more about hanging out with their friends if truth be told
Global Marketplace & Competitions
Showcasing some of the best local and global products and services is the Global Marketplace. Rules are set in place for each vendor to allow the Marin Fair to continue being the “Greenest County Fair on Earth,” such as using biodegradable or reusable bags and serving food samples in compostable containers.

iconic Trevi Fountain.. a major highlight of
this this painting will actually take 5 days to create by world-famous
Master Madonnara, Julie Kirk-Purcell, and a group of young adult artists being who are being mentored
on anamorphic technique (dictionary.com defines anamorphic as having or producing unequal magnifications
along two axes perpendicular to each other).
There's activities, music, food and fun for all at this yearly
event. Here are some of the highlights:
3 Lavenham Rd. in the Traditions section of Hamilton was a home loved by my happy clients for 16 years, but now it was time for them to move 'back home' to their S. Cal roots. My Sellers were delighted with the way I prepared and marketed the property on social media, online sources and with a fabulous property website.. and they were ecstatic with the reception the property received, the multiple offers and price the property sold for. In short, they are thrilled and proud that, to date, this home that they loved so, sold for more than any other home in Traditions has.
If you are thinking of selling your home, give me a call and let me use my experience to get you top dollar!
How to sell the "family home" ...when the time comes
There is an aging population in Marin County and sooner or later the "family" home needs to be sold. I have been helping clients, for over 15 years, sell their parents and
grandparents home when the time comes. Each situation is a little different yet

process is extremely important. As a local Realtor I offer such advice. Plus, as
I am in the process of selling my family's home of 56 years, I have in-depth
insight and wisdom to offer my clients for putting the selling...
