Two great properties, same price point, both close to town but completely different cities in Marin County. I talk to buyers every day either moving from San Francisco or across country that want to live in Mill Valley. Mill Valley has so much to offer. Great for families, quaint European style town center, good restaurants, 2 Whole Foods markets, great schools but the #1 reason my clients want to live in Mill Valley. Any guesses? It's close proximity to San Francisco.
When buyers start the process of searching for a new home in Marin they consider and weigh many factors. Weather, outdoor space, a garage,#of Bedrooms and bathrooms, square footage, pool vs no pool, etc. When you work downtown San Francisco or along the penninsula you also have to factor…
The Sea Ranch CA 95497 - An Architectural Wonder & Coastal Playground
The Sea Ranch is a magical, architecturally significant community of homes on the California Coast. As a kid, my parents and family friends would rent this one house every year at The Sea Ranch. I remember a cozy loft bed, a wind swept meadow. I remember making sand candles on the beach. I remember loving every minute of our visits. Of course in true 60's style there was a sunken living room and a hot tub!
We would walk to the community pool and tennis courts, ride bikes, read and play games and just enjoy coastal life. There is plenty of room to run around as the homes are scattered along the landscape and not smashed together…

2 Park Terrace, Mill Valley CA 94941 - Just Sold!
90% of buyers today start their search on the Internet. Some buyers spend several months doing Internet research and looking at properties online before contacting a realtor or visiting homes in person. Todays buyer is educated and more prepared when they do start working with a realtor.

19885 State Route Highway 1, Marshall CA 9 - A Dream Realized!
Some things truly are worth fighting for and the purchase and transfer of 19885 State Route Highway 1 in Marshall California on Tamales Bay was worth the fight!
My clients, and dear friends, had a dream of owning a house on Tamales Bay.

5 reasons to move to Marin (or come home to Marin)
The current market is like a rare convergence of stars! A perfect alignment that creates unique and special opportunities. According to a local astronomer, my only son was born under such a rare convergence and while I might be a little biased he truly is a unique and special person with traits typically not seen in a human boy! My point is, the market is ripe and while inventory is down great homes are hitting the market daily.
Interest rates are low, prices are down and the job market in Marin and SF continues to rebound with tech companies expanding and opening offices in SF.
Here are my top 5 reasons why you should consider relocating to Marin…
Greenbuild Conference 2012 - Top 10 residential applications!
In early November San Francisco was fortunate to host the 2012 Greenbuild conference. A perfect setting for a conference focused on energy efficiency and sustainable building practices. Under the leadership of our former Mayor Gavin Newsom, San Francisco became one of the ‘Greenest" cities in the country.
According to the Huff Post report San Francisco is the #1 greenest City in the US based on public transit, energy and food.
As a Realtor and Ecobroker I was curious to experience the newest and greatest innovations in Green and sustainable building products. Like most conferences of this size the predominant audience is commercial…
77 Cypress Drive, Fairfax CA 94930 - Has a New Owner!
As an active Realtor in Marin County I see over 100 homes a month in person. There are a handful of exceptional homes, for various reasons, that when I step over the threshold I fall in love and think, "I must sell this home". It might be a super clean well maintained home, or the landscaping and grounds are magical or sometimes it's the architectural style that grabs me.
77 Cypress Drive in Fairfax was one of those special properties! Luckily, I had a specific and very special family in mind when I walked into the Cypress property.
I first met this family in person on the 4th of July! They were visiting from the East Coast and staying…
