Another happy buyer for this wonderful Picnic Valley Gem. My buyer originally started looking in the 450K-560K range. Homes in that price point proved to need a lot of work or were too far away. I suggested she ask her mortgage broker how much she could spend if she were to buy a duplex or multi unit property. We found this house in central San Rafael! It's a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home with an in-law unit. The lot is large, there are lovely decks sheltered by large oak trees. All for the bargain price of 625K. I pride myself on finding the right house for my clients needs and lifestyle. Please call me when I can help you find your next home or sell your next home.

I went to Cavallo Point in Sausalito today to buy a gift certificate for a neighbor who had kindly referred a client to me. It was a gorgeous day and breathtakingly beautiful. Located at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge off the first exit into Sausalito, Cavallo Point Lodge exudes rustic elegance in a world class setting. The original buildings at Ft. Baker have been beautifully restored and turned into a lodge, spa, conference center and restaurant.
After purchasing the gift certificate, I wandered into the gift store, the Mercantile, and on the counter found a postcard promoting local artisans selling their handcrafted items this Saturday, for Mother's Day. Featured artisans include Sarah Suloff Jewelry, Bean Up the…

36 Villa Avenue, San Rafael, CA 94901 sits on the North/West end of the prestigious Dominican neighborhood in San Rafael. Amongst the multi-million dollar mansions, 36 Villa is an unassuming 3-bedroom/2 bath home set back from the street and aching for attention. Purchase for $479,000 makes this fixer a great buy.
My clients are super excited to tackle this cute 1970's property and make it a cozy home for their eldest son and his adorable girlfriend.
Father and son are going to don their tool belts and do some much-needed upgrades and repairs on this sweet house.

Who knew a hardware store could make me so happy. Well it can and did. All of us up in the northern part of San Rafael 94903 (Terra Linda, Santa Venetia, Marinwood, Lucas Valley etc.) have been without an easy to get to hardware store ever since Pacific Lumber & Hardware closed a few years ago. Recently I was getting some repairs done in my house and the handyman needed a special light switch. I had about 15 minutes to get it otherwise he was going to have to come back. Luckily Marin Ace Hardware had just opened its doors. My problem was solved quick and easy, as they are located conveniently off the 101 freeway at 180 Merrydale (formerly The Sizzler at 3725 Redwood Highway).
I have been in there now a few more times and the service is…

I just helped my client purchase a nice 3-unit property in San Rafael. Homes rarely come onto the market in this location where you can walk to town. Not only does it provide an investment that covers some of the cost, but it provides an easy commute to work, as well as plenty of sunny days to enjoy throughout the year.
Set in the lower hills of desirable Sun Valley neighborhood just off of Forbes Avenue, this mid-century modern triplex has a rare side-by-side orientation that offers privacy. Each unit has been well-maintained and has two bedrooms and one bathroom, a fireplace, a laundry area, a garage, as well as plenty of storage. You can also enjoy outdoor-living from the deck that each unit offers, with the principal unit…

An age old festival, particularly celebrated in Mexico, Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebrates and honors loved ones that have died. Traditionally taking place on November 1 (All Saints Day) and November 2 (All Soul's Day), the celebrations are lively and festive. The rituals consist of friends and family gathering to build private alters where they prey, adorn with sugar skulls, marigolds, mementos, food and beverages. Then continue to the graves honoring those that have passed before them.
Marin offers two great places to participate in this celebration of life.
