As I sell real estate throughout Marin County, I often come across a buyer that is reluctant to take a look into Novato. Not because of the commute but usually because they have some notion that it isn’t much of a town. Since I live in Novato and specialize in the area, I feel inclined to share with you what makes this once bustling town that became a super sleepy town, but now on the rise… great place to live and raise a family. I also want to share the details of the immense change that has occurred over the years and what the future seems to hold for this great community. With that said, I share with you a brief history of Novato starting with the early development back in 1856 when Joseph Sweetser and Francis DeLong purchased a Mexican land grant

When purchasing a home, a buyer will be handed a large stack of disclosures to review and sign off on.  One of the most overlooked documents is the Natural Hazard Disclosure report.  This report could be interpreted as sort of like a land inspection, which determines any natural hazards around the property that may affect the affordability, safety or desirability of the home.

The report will let the potential buyer know if the home is in any state level determined hazard zones such as earthquake, landslide, liquefaction, flood, potential flood and fire.  These are the mandatory disclosures that are required by law and the only disclosures that need to be signed off on by buyer and seller.  Most of the time, buyers may only have concern if

The northern end of Marin, specifically San Marin is the most affordable neighborhood for buyers still eager to live in Marin.  As home values continue to rise, it is still possible to find a lovely home under the 1 million dollar mark.  Take a peek at the home sales from January through the end of July.  Your dollar goes the furthest in San Marin of any other city in Marin...and that may not be for much longer with all the exciting developments in the works which will make Novato the hot spot to live - ideally located between San Francisco, the gorgeous wine country and also the coastal region with sleepy towns like Point Reyes and Marshall close by.  You are literally a 20-60 minute car ride to any of these beautiful places.  How lucky am I to live

I am so excited for my buyers that closed on 415 Sylvia Way, San Rafael today!  I met this darling couple at an open house over a year ago. We had been out to see several homes over the last year and it wasn't until I found this gorgeous town house off the market that they finally put in an offer.  With a baby on the way, they can turn the key and move right in to this upgraded, easy living home!  Located in the lovely Green Oaks complex, it is located close to hiking trails, Scotty's Market, great schools and the complex comes with a pool and clubhouse.

I am proud to announce that I just sold this beautiful, loft style townhome in lovely Quail Ridge.  My empty nester buyers are so excited to call this gorgeous unit their home after living all over the world.  Now that their son had settled away from home, they were ready to settle down for good.  It was a true pleasure finding them their home off the market by writing letters to the complex to seek out a potential seller.  I may be the new queen of off-market sales this year!
