San Rafael's West End Neighbors Enjoy Free Shredding & Electonics Recycling Event

It may not be sexy, but even the most die hard packrat can't help but get excited when the word FREE is put in front of Shredding & Recycling. This past Saturday I sponsored a Free Shredding & Electronics Recycling Event for friends, clients and my West End neighbors at the Marin Modern office in the heart of the West End Neighborhood of San Rafael

129 Greenfield and 16 Mariners Circle - San Rafael - SOLD!

Sometimes things are meant to be and sometimes you have to make them happen!  I represented the sellers on 129 Greenfield who became buyers for 16 Mariners Circle.  Long-time (41 years) West End Neighborhood neighbors and a former San Rafael City Council member, my clients/friends had started thinking about selling 3 years ago.  Thoughtful planners, they didn't want to make a misstep at this stage in their life. They called me several months ago, both husband and wife were on the same page.....it was time to sell and leave the stairs and the upkeep of a big home to someone younger.  The important part of the equation for them was to be able to take advantage of Proposition 60, whereby they could keep their Prop. 13 property tax base if they purchased a replacement property of equal or lesser value than their Greenfield home.  This is a one-time "gift" to anyone over 55 in Marin....

Marin Public Schools Score High on API Test

Today, the Marin Independent Journal published the 2011-12 API Scores for the Marin Public Schools.  Marin public schools continue to score well above the 53% of schools statewide in academic achievement according to the recently published figures. In addition, all but three of the Marin school districts posted gains from the previous year.  According to Thomas Lohwasser, superintendent of San Rafael's Dixie School District, "you can't always judge a school by its test scores but the 11 point jump in score validates our efforts."
