 I had the pleasure of representing the sellers for the second time in 4 years.  These are the sellers from heaven who have good karma sending out positive vibes that comes back to them in spades.

 Their highly sought-after ground level 2-bedroom/2-bath condo with 1-car garage was snapped up quickly by a buyer who can hardly wait to move in.  Built in the early 1990's, the Marin Lagoon condos in San Rafael are new construction by Marin standards and have a nautical theme on a man-made lagoon.  The condo has architecturally interesting features, an open floor plan, lots of light and a large outdoor space for entertaining.  There is a pool and clubhouse.  The Marin Lagoon community is so convenient to the Marin Civic Center, Northgate Shopping
