I had the pleasure of representing the seller of 66 Hector Lane in Novato.  I represented her when she purchased 66 Hector Lane in 2015. This 2 bedroom, 1 bath condo with a detached single car garage in Southern Novato had been extensively remodeled several years ago.  We were fortunate to receive a good offer before this condo went on the market which enabled the seller to relocate to Southern California without the worry of having two mortgages for an extended period of time.  The timing worked out beautifully for the seller and it allowed the buyers to purchase their first home.  It was truly a win-win for everyone. The condo sold today for $370,000.

If you are buying or selling, give me a call.  I take pride in creating a win-win scenario for

I had the pleasure of representing the sellers of this iconic adobe ranch style home reminiscent of architect Cliff May's work in the 50's that symbolized the Western Lifestyle featured in Sunset Magazine.  This home evokes an emotional response that harkens back to our romance with the West and an earlier time in California.  The sweeping views of Mt. Tam and the surrounding hills from this Southern facing private gated estate makes this a very special home.

  

This unique home exudes a comfortable charm with vaulted open beam ceiling, skylights, built-in bookcases, wood burning fireplace, Western ranch doors, adobe walls and original concrete tile floors.  It features 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a family room and an office with a separate

Built in 2005, this top floor 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo is light and modern with spectacular pastoral views.

I had the pleasure of representing the buyers for 13 Egret View who relocated from the Central Coast to Marin to be closer to their adult children and young grandchildren.  This is a story and demographic that is playing out over and over again in my real estate practice and for many other realtors.

As Baby Boomers retire, they are increasingly, at a younger age than the previous generation, choosing to relocate to be near their adult children and play a bigger role in the lives of their grandchildren.  With very busy lives, both parents working and no family support, many young families welcome the move and having grandparents closer and more involved.

One of the biggest challenges for these Baby Boomers is the cost and competitive nature of real

I had the pleasure of representing the seller, a long-time friend, who is retiring and making a major life change by moving to the East Coast.  Talk about a seller who had crossed all the t's and dotted all of the i's, my client had meticulous records of all of the work and improvements she had made to the house.  She even went the extra mile on all of the presale inspections to insure a smooth transaction.  Her hard work and dilligence paid off when the right buyer came along.
