In my many years of living in Marin County, I have fallen in love with mountain biking. I'm even willing to overlook the bugs and branches consistently hurtling toward my face on a ride, because the scenery (and very often the stunning view, as the picture above shows) is completely worth it. But I have a hard time getting that same feeling on the road, sharing space with various hulking modes of transportation that don't run on the quinoa salad I had for lunch, not to mention my mild concern over spandex. However, I might be the only one in Marin County deterred. In fact, the Marin Bike Coalition conducted a survey that showed weekday cyclists in Marin increased 118% from 1999 to 2009. So clearly the spandex…

I'm pleased to announce the recent sale of my listing at 32 Brown Drive in Novato. It sold for $565,000
I had the pleasure of representing my clients on the purchase of this home a couple of years ago when they relocated to Marin.

As a Marinite and ice cream lover, I was happy to celebrate the 7th Anniversary of organic ice cream maker, Three Twins, this week, with cones for our kids and several pints to take home.
Three Twins got its start in San Rafael, in a small shop in Terra Linda, to be exact. I remember before we had kids, going to the shop with my husband just weeks, or maybe it was days even, after it first opened. It was love at first bite, as the ice cream is delicious - the best ice cream I'd had in memory. We loved all of the flavors, from the original and enticing ones like Chocolate Orange Confetti, Roasted Peach and Dad's Cardamom, to their versions of the classics, such as Strawberry Je Ne Sais Quoi, Madagascar Vanilla and…

The combination of low, long-term interest rates and significantly moderated housing prices seems to be generating a strong demand for borrowers looking to trade up and buy into a larger or better home. Of this group, I am seeing an increasing number, enticed perhaps by a strong rental market, looking to retain their current home as an investment property. For those following this course of action, it is important to note that borrowers are limited through most financing channels to only one property with an "owner-occupied" loan secured within a 12-month period. If the current home was recently financed in this preferred category, or if you are considering a cash-out refinance for down payment funds on the new purchase, your…

Another beautiful Eichler has new owners in the Marinwood neighborhood of Lucas Valley. I am happy to have assisted my clients in finding the right home for them. This 3 bedroom 2 bath Eichler has been upgraded throughout the years and sits on a private lot with mature landscaping and resort like pool area. They chose this location for the beauty of surround hills, close proximity to wine country, the ocean and San Francisco and of course the open architecture that Eichler's offer.
Over the years I have sold many houses in the 94903 zip code because it has so much to offer: Excellent schools, acres of open space, unbeatable weather and a wide variety of homes to choose from.
If you would like to know more about the San Rafael neighborhoods, or…
