It was an honor and a pleasure to prepare, market, list and sell 1917 Grand Ave. San Rafael CA 94901. This sale was near and dear to my heart because, as childhood neighbors, our families knew each other for over 50 years. The seller’s parents built the home in 1952 and the daughter’s fixed it up to today’s buyer's needs prior to going on the market. The result was beautiful. I staged, professionally photographed, thoroughly marketed and received 6 offers in 1 week. The buyers were all very competitive but an all cash no contingency offer beat the rest of them out. Listed at $815,000 and sold for $967,000.
Even in today’s market, taking the proper presale steps, bring in multiple offers and over asking bids more often than not. Don’t make...
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...

Another happy Buyer Client! 80 Roundtree Blvd. San Rafael, CA 94903: SOLD!
Helping clients find the perfect new home is a joy I never tire from. I had the recent pleasure of helping my buyer client search for, find and close on a beautiful new home in a difficult buyers’ market. It took several offers and much persistence, but in the end the property my client closed on was exactly what we were looking for-single story, Dixie School district and in Marinwood.
Over the years I have done many real estate transactions in Marinwood and like this one, in the Roundtree Complex. This area of San Rafael is appealing because of the award-winning school district, ...
748 Appleberry Dr. San Rafael CA 94903---Sold in a few days for $90,000
over asking price!
I helped my clients prepare their home for sale by lining up a painter,
yard cleaner, house cleaner, window washer, hauler and carpet installer. We had
a tight timeline and the house was ready for me to stage and get on MLS in 6 days!
I hired a professional photographer then blitzed the market. Even in a sellers'
market the proper presale steps should not be overlooked. My clients trusted me,
and as a team we were able to garnish multiple offers and close in a few
business days with an all cash offer....

opinion. It's a structure with utilities in a desirable San Anselmo neighborhood with an amazing view that needed some
vision and TLC.

see the potential of this property. They also possessed...
