At Marin Modern we have a broad reach with all of our amazing agents.   We have many different versions of our brand that focus on specific geographies, East Bay Modern, San Francisco Modern, East Bay Modern, Wine Country Modern and of course Marin Modern.  When I joined the Marin Modern team, Erika Davito and I started working together.  We soon realized there was an opportunity to focus our efforts on the Southern Marin geography (Mill Valley, Sausalito, Tiburon, Belvedere, Corte Madera and Larkspur).  I call Mill Valley home, and Erika has lived and owned homes throughout Mill Valley.  We both love sharing this beautiful part of the world with our clients. 

Erika and I now have a satellite office located in Mill Valley!

I have been wanting to write about this subject for a while because I wanted an excuse to rave about my car. But, I just saw the perfect ad to compliment my article. It cracked me up.

Did any of you see the Cadillac ad that debuted during the Olympics that framed Americans as white, spoiled, Type A, overworking zealots that only take two weeks off in August so that they can buy more stuff? In the ad, the guy talks too fast, loves his stuff, his family, and his car. Kind of in that order, too. What really irked me about the ad was that I really LIKED the ad! It was so well done. The message just pissed me off. (And I am not a fan of Cadillacs.)

I am a Ford owner. I drive a Ford Fusion hybrid plug in, which is a fancy way of saying that I get between 90

How should I price my house?  That is a question realtors hear daily.  Generally, your local market will have a lot to say about pricing.  It's very important to study the market and make sure you are priced correctly.  If you are priced correctly, realtors and their clients will show up to see it (both at Open Houses and private showings) and likewise, if you are priced too high, the market will let you know very quickly as you won't have many showings.   There's an old saying in the real estate world when you aren't getting many showings or offers, "If you can't move the house, move the price!" 

Having said all that, there are also little hidden gems that should be considered when pricing your home for sale.  A study was recently done around
