Eichler Event: June 15th 10am-4pm 2013 San Rafael
As an Eichler homeowner, I found a nice brochure was placed on my windshield today announcing an Eichler event taking place June 15th in San Rafael. About 50 years ago, Joseph Eichler had over 10,000 homes built throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, but now it can be hard to find replacement products for these mid-century marvels. Hudson Street Design of Marin is here to help by hosting an educational day to show off products perfect for our today Eichlers.
The day sounds like a ton of fun: BBQ lunch, live music by the Hot Rod Juke Box Band and cars from the 50's & 60's. In fact, if you have a car to show off come on down. Votes will be collected on the cars and the…

5606 #101 California @ 18th San Francisco, CA SOLD!
I had the pleasure of working with Rebecca Brooks, a San Francisco Modern Realtor, to list and sell the this hip move-in ready 2 bedroom 2 full bath condo belonging to oneof my Marin Modern buyers who made the move to a San Rafael Eichler last year. With the tenants moved out, we went quickly to work staging the home for "show" and preparing an array of winning marketing. We quickly received offers and closed escrow in a timely manner for $690,000.
There are an increasing number of buyers that are migrating out of San Francisco to greener pastures where they can raise their children and confidently enroll them in the public schools of Marin. As a Marin County Realtor, I help…

I recently received a query from a new Marin resident. He is renting in Southern Marin. The question went something like this:"While I am from the metropolitan East Coast and used to high home prices, I was simply unprepared for the sticker shock of homes in Southern Marin. Why should I even consider a home purchase in Marin? These prices are outrageous."
I am posting my reply: There is a very simple reason Marin is so unique and thus so expensive.
With very strict zoning and environmental laws, Marin is a Mecca of natural beauty and healthy living yet close to one of the most exciting major metropolises in the world. In a nutshell: Marin is utterly unique.
How did it get to this point? It almost didn't.
In 1968-71, the County Supervisors in…

I've been a 7 year resident of Kentfield and enjoy Kentfields' ammenities on a daily basis. Here they are and I hope you enjoy them.
1) The Corte Madera Creek Path - this path starts in downtown Ross and heads East all the way to the Ferry. It boarders boths sides of the creek in Kentfield and Larkspur. At the end of the path nearest to the Ferry is the Marin Rowing Club.
2) The Woodlands Market - if you're a foody, you'll love the Woodlands Markert. They have daily fresh fruits and vegetables, a deli with prepared gourmet hot and cold meals, a coffee bar, a sandwich bar and a butcher.
3) The Kentfield School District - OK, I'm biased. My son has attended both Bacich and Kent. Of course it's a combination of the teachers, PTA, staff and…

Mini Music has come to Marin and is taking over the young toddler music scene. I recently met Ali Weiss and Warren Mann at my open house in Fairfax at 8 Westbrae. What delightful people. They are so excited to be expanding beyond Sonoma into Marin. She told me that their business is exploding at their current home at Inner Rhythms which is located at 518 Tamalpais Suite D in Corte Madera.Their classes focus on connecting kids and their parents, (care givers) with music.
I meet a lot of parents of young kids in my business (I help people buy and sell homes in Fairfax and Corte Madera.) It's such a relief to find great enriching activiities in your own neighborhood. When my teens were tots, we took them to a music class in Fairfax. The kids loved it and…

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."
To check out the scores for individual schools, click on the link to the Marin Independent Journal article. Some highlights are districts with significant gains, Kentfield,…
