48-marblehead-lane_photo_headshot_1200

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.

633 Tamalpais Avenue, Novato JUST SOLD!

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.

Is a home warranty really worth it?

When purchasing a home, your agent will ask you if you want a home warranty.  It is an item on the C.A.R. Residential Purchase Agreement in which the cost is negotiable between the buyer and the seller.  My buyers often ask me if it is necessary.  The answer is no, it is not necessary, but in my opinion, well worth it.  Even if the buyer has to pay for it themselves, it should be done.  And I will tell you why...

A home warranty covers failures of the mechanical systems within the home due to normal wear and tear after close of escrow.  These systems include the furnace, water heater, air conditioning, electrical, attic and exhaust fans, ceiling fans, plumbing, plumbing stoppages and the appliances just to name a few.  The policies...

852 Diablo #204, Novato - JUST SOLD

I just sold this lovely end unit in Edgewater Commons. This turn-key, single level condo with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms is light and bright.  Great location near downtown Novato, shops, restaurants, parks and more! What a great investment! The new owners had tons of interest when they posted the unit for rent.  It rented one day after closing escrow!  The rental market is so hot!  Why not buy a property and rent it out so someone else can pay the mortgage off for you?  If you are looking for a...
