955 Bolinas Road Fairfax CA 94930 - Love at First Sight!

955 Bolinas Road Fairfax CA 94930 Sold

Buying a house is extremely personal for most people. There are so many features to consider. City, location/neighborhood, view vs no view, walk to town, garage vs carport, and all of the specific house details. My advice to buyer clients is do not try to force yourself into thinking a house is THE ONE. You have to feel that it's right and then make sure it has all the particulars that are important to you. Once in awhile the house and buyer are a perfect match - love at first sight!

What is a Preliminary Title Report?

A preliminary title report is issued prior to the transfer of title and details the conditions in which the title company will issue a title insurance policy.

 Real Estate Questions

Listing agents typically pre-open escrow so they can include a preliminary title report with the disclosure packet and see if there are any issues with the title that need to be cleared up.

A preliminary title report sets forth various details about a piece of real estate, including: 

  • Ownership;
  • Liens and encumbrances; including property taxes paid and owed
  • Easements. 

The preliminary title search gathers the information from the county assessors office that the property is located in.

227 San Carlos Avenue Sausalito CA 94965 - Dream Home!

227 San Carlos View

The transfer of real property is so much more than one party selling a home and one party buying a home. It's the single biggest purchase most people will ever make and one I am always grateful and humbled to be a part of. As realtors we literally participate in making peoples dreams come true. Turns out buying 227 San Carlos, for my client, was a dream fulfilled. She grew up in Marin County, left for college, started a career in New York, landed back in San Francisco to be closer to family but always yearned to return to Marin County, the place of her childhood.

217 Picnic Avenue San Rafael - Off Market Gem!

Timing truly is everything! Working with buyers in a sellers market can drive even the most patient clients nuts! It's our job, as their advocate and realtor, to minimize the stress of finding their perfect home. Buyers who are ready to purchase really just want to find that home that speaks to them when they walk in the door. Unfortunately that home might be speaking to a dozen other buyers or the house isn't their dream home and they might be forcing the conversation.

Throughout the life of working with a buyer to find and purchase a home I focus on keeping their hope alive. They might waiver, get frustrated, take a break or even fire you along the way but I never lose sight that their perfect house

415 45th Street Oakland, CA 94609 - Just Sold!

415 45th Street

2 years, 5 offers and 2 cities! it truly is a sellers market with historically and painfully low inventory. My lovely clients were hyper focused with very specific search criteria. They were also diligent in their search, pro-active and extremely patient. They started looking in a well defined radius in San Francisco but we did not prevail in the competitive multiple offers so they started checking at homes in the East Bay. 

Their main criteria was to find an older home, built before or around 1920. Since their search criteria was very specific it was beneficial when they opened up their search to another city. They asked if I would represent them if they purchased a home in the East Bay and
