We wanted to let our clients and friends know that we are hosting an exclusive event later this month which is designed to educate attendees on the process of building a modern prefab home in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Importantly, we've hosted a similar event in the past (with a speaker from Michelle Kaufmann Design) which "sold out" quickly so we wanted to share this information with our blog followers early.
This event - Building a Modernist & Eco-Friendly Prefab Home in the San Francisco Bay Area - will be held on Saturday, April 21, 2012. Attendees will have an opportunity to hear from keynote speakers from Bay-area based Simpatico Homes, Swatt Architects, Marin Modern Real Estate, East Bay Modern Real Estate and…

1120 Mission Ave. in San Rafael has a new owner! I am pleased to announce that I have assisted another buyer client in finding their special place in Marin County. This, fairly new, downtown San Rafael townhouse shows like a designer's dream: granite kitchen, hardwood flooring, crown molding and tasteful décor. Set in a small complex near town and open space makes this one a winner.
I knew when I first saw this unit that it would be perfect for my client who asked to be close to a cultural environment as well as open space and in turn-key condition! By listening to what my clients really want as their complete living package and by constantly looking at the inventory I am able to match people and properties very well. If you are interested in…

35 Bryn Mawr Drive, San Rafael CA 94901 - Coming Soon!
Inventory in the Marin County housing market is historically low as we head into our busy spring season. Spring is a great time to list and sell a property for a few key reasons:
- Weather - it's just more fun and convenient to house hunt when the weather is dry and warm.
- Timing - Finding the right property in the spring means getting into contract and closing escrow by Summer, getting settled during the summer months and hit the ground running when the new school year starts.
- Taxes - Post tax season. Budgets in place and 2012 plans being made.
- Renewal - Spring is just a good time for fresh starts!

Thank you George Lucas for your community spirit and generosity!
For everyone who travels the Miracle Mile every day, you can't help but admire the handsome stone building across from United Market, now home to Amazing Grace Music. George Lucas, who lives nearby, rescued Amazing Grace from their dilapidated 1936 building, purchased the property, and set in motion a major renovation of the median that separates east and west traffic on the Miracle Mile. Not only did he build a new home for Amazing Grace Music, he moved it further down on the median and completely landscaped the area using a local landscape architect, Blasen Landscape Design.
The Miracle Mile is a main thoroughfare for the residents of San Rafael, San Anselmo,…

It's a Poppy Palooza on the West End Street in San Rafael. West End Street is travelled every day by West End neighbors as they merge onto 2nd Street headed to downtown or 101 and where the Ali Akabar College of Music is located. This is also a favorite route for bike riders.
Several years ago, the median was overgrown with weeds and a real eyesore in the neighborhood. As part of our mission, the West End Neighborhood Association voted to take this on as a beautification project and enlisted neighbors and local merchants. We collected cardboard boxes from Martin & Harris Appliance for sheet mulching the area to smother the weeds. Bartlett Tree Service delivered wood chips for mulching. A neighbor built flower boxes and…
