I recently received a call from a young couple who was relocating their family to the Bay Area from Los Angeles due to a job transfer. They were under a time crunch because they were in the process of selling their current home and needed to make a contingent offer on a new home. After spending just two weekends in the car with in order to familiarize themselves with the various Marin neighborhoods, I had a pretty good idea of what they were looking and they had decided on a couple of areas that would be suitable both for their children's school but also for the daily commute to work.
It didn't take long for us to find this gorgeous 4BD/3BA, two story home with over 2500...
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.
4 Thornton Ct. Novato CA 94945 has new owners!
Well, after several attempts at other properties, my client’s offer was accepted on 4 Thornton Ct. This property checked all the boxes and in my opinion, was the best property for my buyer. One level ranch with a pool and fantastic outdoor space for entertaining! Once again, I could get my clients offer accepted before the public open houses. Curious how that works…call me.
The market is hard in general to get into because of the lack of inventory. But the market for single level homes that appeal to downsizers is even harder. Why? Because the downsizers are competing with the first-time buyers and up-sizers. The sale to a downsizer can be tricky because they are used to a bigger house and may have to compromise, they are usually not...
51 Pinheiro Cr. Novato CA 94945 has new owners!
I’m so happy for my first-time home buyers that just closed on their gorgeous Marin home. They were able to jump to the head of the line and get their winning offer accepted before any public open houses. This does not happen very often, but occasionally there is a seller that needs to get their home in escrow quickly in order to move forward on their replacement property. Luckily this was the case for us. My buyers acted quickly and met with their awesome lender and as a team, we were able to beat out the competition and get our offer accepted.
51 Pinheiro is a large home that my buyers can grow into as well as share now with family and friends. They love...
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 at...

Mt. Tam (Mount Tamalpais) in Marin County is considered by many to be the birthplace of modern day mountain biking, but the truth is that some form of mountain biking has been around for almost a century.
The word "infantry" refers to the division of the army that enters fighting/combat on foot and In the 1800’s there was an army division called the 25th Infantry Bicycle Corp whose job it was to put together bikes that could carry their gear over rough ground and terrain. In August of 1896 a group of riders from this infantry rode from Missoula, Montanat to Yellowstone National Park…and then back. Their goal was to test a new bicycle to see if the military could use it for traveling mountainous areas. This test went so well that the...
