When we moved from Terra Linda to the Marinwood Lucas Valley neighborhood, I felt a bit lost without Scotty's, my beloved neighborhood market. I cherished the convenience, selection of food and friendly service they offered.  Just about the time I got Bell Market in Marinwood all figured out-they closed! For the last 6 years all of us in the Marinwood, Lucas Valley and Mont Marin area have been market-less.

San Francisco Neighborhoods - Cow Hollow + Marina District Part 2: 10 New & Noteworthy Restaurants

San Francisco has over 4,500 restaurants, yet I still get excited when a new one is about to open in the Cow Hollow + Marina District.


I consider myself somewhat of a foodie but in reality I just like to eat, prepare great food and entertain. My boyfriend and I fantasize about writing a cook book for our friends and family so we started to photograph our food.  I know, it sounds a bit weird but if you have ever tried to photograph food it's really difficult to make it look good and we want to be prepared.

I'm pleased to announce I've just helped my client purchase a home at 248 Bungalow, San Rafael.  This home has 2 beds, 1 1/2 baths and a newly constructed large bonus room addition.  The seller purchased the home at a foreclosure sale and did an excellent job of turning it into a wonderful remodeled home.  Nestled just above Davidson Middle School, 248 Bungalow is just like a Mill Valley tree house but for a San Rafael price. I was able to negotiate a price under listing and several substantial repairs prior to close of escrow.  My client is VERY happy and can't wait to move in.
