I just sold this Eichler home located on a sunny and quiet lot in Lower Lucas Valley / Marinwood.

Originally listed with another agent for almost 1 year who was unable to sell the property, I was able to list, re-stage, aggressively market, and sell this Eichler home for over the asking price before the first public open house.

This was a very fulfilling transaction for me since the sellers were anxious to move on with their lives and move into a retirement community however they couldn't make the transition until their home was sold.    Once they re-listed their home with me, I immediately went to work on staging it with current furnishings, painted several walls, had the home professionally photographed, and then implemented a fresh online and

I'm pleased to announce that my Eichler listing located at 1080 Las Ovejas in San Rafael just closed escrow today.

We've just passed the mid-point for 2009 so I wanted to provide  a quick update on the market for Eichler Homes in Marin County & San Francisco, CA.  

A total of 19 Eichler homes have sold in San Rafael from January 1 - June 30, 2009.    In the second quarter of this year ("Q2"), 10 Eichler homes were sold and I'm proud to say that I was responsible for 50% of all Eichler Home Sales in San Rafael during the second quarter of 2009 (representing either sellers or buyers).

Taking a closer look at Q2 home sales, the market for homes priced under $750,000 was quite hot in both Marin & San Francisco.   The demand for homes was fueled by competitive interest rates which fell as low as 4.35% for jumbo loans.    Additionally, FHA loans were readily

I'm happy to announce that my Eichler listing at 847 Pine Ln in San Rafael just sold today.   This home was a mid-century Eichler "fixer" in San Rafael with fabulous upgrade potential.

I worked closely with the sellers to prepare the home for sale and we were able to generate a significant amount of interest in the home before it even hit the Marin county  mls.    

The result was a multiple offer situation before the home hit the market and the property succesfully closed today for $535,000.   This represents my third Eichler listing this year to receive multiple offers  (i've been involved in 9 different Eichler transactions year-to-date). 

Whether you are interested in buying an Eichler home or something more traditional, I would welcome the
