17 Redwood Road in Fairfax - Sold

 

The joy of being a realtor is when your experience, knowledge of the market and relationships enables you to be a matchmaker for a unique property in search of a very specific buyer.  That's what happened with 17 Redwood Road in Fairfax.

Sweeping views of Ross Valley compliment this magical and private 2 bedroom/1 bath hillside retreat in Fairfax.  What started out as a summer cottage in 1922 evolved over the years adding a little bit of serendipity and quirkiness with each owner.  When my client, the seller, called to say she had taken a new job and wanted to sell, I had just started working with the perfect buyers in search of a peaceful and private lifestyle in the Fairfax hills....

66 Hector Lane, Novato - Sold

I had the pleasure of representing the seller of 66 Hector Lane in Novato.  I represented her when she purchased 66 Hector Lane in 2015. This 2 bedroom, 1 bath condo with a detached single car garage in Southern Novato had been extensively remodeled several years ago.  We were fortunate to receive a good offer before this condo went on the market which enabled the seller to relocate to Southern California without the worry of having two mortgages for an extended period of time.  The timing worked out beautifully for the seller and it allowed the buyers to purchase their first home.  It was truly a win-win for everyone. The condo sold today for $370,000.

38 Vista Drive, Kentfield - Sold

I had the pleasure of representing the sellers of this iconic adobe ranch style home reminiscent of architect Cliff May's work in the 50's that symbolized the Western Lifestyle featured in Sunset Magazine.  This home evokes an emotional response that harkens back to our romance with the West and an earlier time in California.  The sweeping views of Mt. Tam and the surrounding hills from this Southern facing private gated estate makes this a very special home.

30 Saddle Wood Drive, Novato - Sold!

 I had the pleasure of representing the buyers on the purchase of their beautiful new home in the very desirable Rush Creek Neighborhood of Novato. Built in 1998 and situated on a little over half an acre, this home offers privacy and an open floor plan on one level with high ceilings and an abundance of windows and light. It features 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a 3-car attached garage with separation and privacy for guests, an office plus a big open kitchen and family room. It is beautifully landscaped with fruit trees, a waterfall, swimming pool, spa and lots of room to entertain outside. It truly is the...

10 Corte Comoda in Greenbrae - Sold!

I had the pleasure of representing the seller, a long-time friend, who is retiring and making a major life change by moving to the East Coast.  Talk about a seller who had crossed all the t's and dotted all of the i's, my client had meticulous records of all of the work and improvements she had made to the house.  She even went the extra mile on all of the presale inspections to insure a smooth transaction.  Her hard work and dilligence paid off when the right buyer came along.

Selling Your Home for Top Dollar in Marin

It may be a hot seller's market in Marin but how you prepare your home for sale will determine whether you get top dollar. When you first decide to sell, it's easy to identify the big things that need to be done such as cleaning or replacing carpet, refinishing hardwood floors, painting all or part of the interior of the house, freshening the landscaping and de-cluttering.  These items alone can seem daunting. Seller fatigue can quickly set in. When that happens, it's easy to miss the little details that make your home stand out from the competition....and there will be more competition as the spring and summer season get into full swing.

As homeowners, we don't see the little things because they have become invisible to us after years of living in a home. Put yourself in the shoes of a buyer (which you may be after you sell your home) and go to open houses and see what you notice and what impression it makes.  You may be surprised.  Buyers...

307 Silvio Lane, Novato - SOLD!

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 day. The...
