I'm delighted to announce the sale of my modern listing at 7 Greenwood Court in Tiburon.    I listed, staged, aggressively pre-marketed and marketed this home, and was pleased to help my sellers get several excellent offers on the home in less than 1 week on market.   The home sold today for $1,400,000 which was $150,000 more than the asking price.

I enjoyed working with my seller client to prepare the home for the market and I appreciate the tremendous buyer and agent turnout which we were able to achieve thru extensive pre-marketing to my proprietary database of over 10,000 modern home aficionados as well as marketing to fellow top agents and brokers in Marin who are also members of the exclusive Top Agent Network.  

Please contact me if I can assist

(Any mortgage exceeding 80% of a property's value requires mortgage insurance.) In a bid of confidence for California's housing market, several mortgage insurance providers have recently increased their coverage to 97% for conventional loans.

For the right borrowers, conventional financing to 97% offers certain advantages over FHA loans. Conventional financing allows for just 3% down versus the FHA's 3.5% requirement. The loans
