About Renee Adelmann, Owner & Founder
Founder of Marin Modern Real Estate, San Francisco Modern Real Estate, East Bay Modern Real Estate and Wine Country Modern Real Estate, Renee Adelmann is a top agent and multi-million dollar producer specializing in residential real estate throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
A native and lifetime resident of Northern California, Renee's interest in modern architecture and Scandinavian design developed early while attending school in the country of Finland. This understanding and appreciation was further enhanced growing up in a family of builder-contractors which provided her with a head-start knowledge of basic home design and construction.
Prior to moving to Marin, Renee was an "urban dweller" living in a San Francisco loft with her husband and dog. With the arrival of a new baby, the need for more space was no longer a luxury, but a necessity. House hunting in San Francisco was unproductive and she found it difficult to find good modern design, usable space, and most importantly, a yard!
Not wanting to distance themselves from city life, she and her husband decided to look for modern homes in Marin County. In addition to affordable modern architecture and a variety of wonderful mid-century modern homes, they quickly discovered that Marin had a lot more to offer including close proximity to the city, great weather & outdoor activities, as well as excellent schools.
Renee and her family settled into a mid-century modern home in Marin County which met their desire to have more space but not sacrifice the modern aesthetic and design she had grown to love.
Prior to founding Marin Modern Real Estate, Renee was the 3rd highest selling agent for Keller Williams Realty in both San Francisco & Marin County. She is currently in the top 1% of all Realtors in Marin County for both sales and transaction volume.
Renee speaks English, Finnish and French.
Renee is a Member of the Marin Association of Realtors, California Association of Realtors, National Assocation of Realtors, and Northern California Chapter of DOCOMOMO (DOcumentation and COnservation of buildings, sites and neighborhoods of the MOdern MOvement). She is also a preferred real estate service provider for Eichler Homes and the exclusive real estate sponsor for the 2011 & 2012 Marin Modern Home Tour hosted by Dwell & Marin Magazine.

About Lisa Mallon
With 11 years of experience in the Marin real estate market, Lisa's success lies in the passion she brings to every client she works with. Born and raised in the metropolitan New York area, Lisa describes her own "story" as a slow transcontinental migration west over several years. Her personal experience with relocating to various cities has given her a unique perspective that she shares with many of her clients.
A graduate of the University of Arizona with a double major in Political Science and Communications, Lisa enjoys being front and center for her clients when touring properties and when it comes time to negotiating deals. She also enjoys the hands-on transaction management aspect of escrows which isn't the "glamorous" side of real estate but is a necessary one for the smooth and proper coordination of an escrow closing.
Prior to entering the real estate profession, Lisa obtained a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Paralegal Studies and worked for a variety of multi-national law firms for 14 years, traveling extensively and working her way into a senior, supervisory role at San Francisco- based global firm. After 14 successful years, Lisa decided that the nature of this profession, with two young children, didn't afford the kind of work-family balance she needed. Having already found a home in Marin County and developed a friendship with her own Realtor, she was encouraged to get into the business where it seemed she had the necessary skills to succeed. Lisa also brings a wide breadth of knowledge and personal experience to the local public school scene. Both her children have attended elementary, middle and high schools in two distinct districts in Marin.
For professional, knowledgeable service with a personal and attentive approach, call Lisa for your next home purchase.
