84 Madrone Unit 19 San Anselmo CA 94960: SOLD!

Talk about a quick turnaround, within 30 days of 1st meeting the sellers, I staged, professionally photographed, blitzed the market, received multiple offers and closed the sale of unit 19 at 84 Madrone Ave. This 1 bedroom 1 bath was located on the ground level and had a private creekside patio. Being only a block from downtown San Anselmo and in a well-kept complex, this listing brought in a lot of buyers. In the end, we had 3 offers and an over bid all cash offer won.

Here is what the seller had to say on YELP about working with me:

Hilary Davis was the perfect amount of foresight, energy, professionalism and down to earth approach. Throughout the process of selling our condominium in Marin she

It was an honor and a pleasure to prepare, market, list and sell 1917 Grand Ave. San Rafael CA 94901. This sale was near and dear to my heart because, as childhood neighbors, our families knew each other for over 50 years. The seller’s parents built the home in 1952 and the daughter’s fixed it up to today’s buyer's needs prior to going on the market. The result was beautiful. I staged, professionally photographed, thoroughly marketed and received 6 offers in 1 week. The buyers were all very competitive but an all cash no contingency offer beat the rest of them out. Listed at $815,000 and sold for $967,000.

Even in today’s market, taking the proper presale steps, bring in multiple offers and over asking bids more often than not. Don’t make a rookie

4 Thornton Ct. Novato CA 94945 has new owners!

Well, after several attempts at other properties, my client’s offer was accepted on 4 Thornton Ct. This property checked all the boxes and in my opinion, was the best property for my buyer. One level ranch with a pool and fantastic outdoor space for entertaining! Once again, I could get my clients offer accepted before the public open houses. Curious how that works…call me.

The market is hard in general to get into because of the lack of inventory. But the market for single level homes that appeal to downsizers is even harder. Why? Because the downsizers are competing with the first-time buyers and up-sizers. The sale to a downsizer can be tricky because they are used to a bigger house and may have

51 Pinheiro Cr. Novato CA 94945 has new owners!

I’m so happy for my first-time home buyers that just closed on their gorgeous Marin home. They were able to jump to the head of the line and get their winning offer accepted before any public open houses. This does not happen very often, but occasionally there is a seller that needs to get their home in escrow quickly in order to move forward on their replacement property. Luckily this was the case for us. My buyers acted quickly and met with their awesome lender and as a team, we were able to beat out the competition and get our offer accepted.

51 Pinheiro is a large home that my buyers can grow into as well as share now with family and friends. They love that they can walk to town, are close to

2149 Elderberry Lane San Rafael CA 94903: SOLD!

2149 Elderberry Lane sold for $165,000 over asking price, which makes this home the highest price per square footage sold in the lower portion of Lucas Valley. I thoroughly enjoyed helping prepare the home; yard clean-up, presale inspections, final staging and amazing professional photography! This sale comes as no big surprise, as the home was impeccably maintained, desirably upgraded and located in the highly sought-after Dixie School District near endless acres of open space and trails. The home received multiple offers soon after going on the market and closed for $1,300,000.

The northern area of San Rafael (Terra Linda, Marinwood and Lucas Valley) continues to see rising property values.

1404 Buchanan St. in Novato CA 94947 has SOLD! This single level 4/2 house fit the wish list for a lot of buyers; my one and only Sunday open house was packed! We received six offers, all over asking, and closed for $41,000 over the ask price. The market for single level homes under $800,000 is huge. However, even in this hot market proper presentation and stellar marketing is a must.

I meet with my seller clients way before the house hits the market and make a thorough to-do list which almost always includes new paint, new carpet, yard clean-up, repairs deep cleaning etc. Then the home is staged, professionally photographed and extensively marketed. Savvy sellers realize that money spent upfront reaps huge rewards at closing.

It is a great time
