Sleek & Modern with Sensational Views

Sleek, modern, sexy with high-end finishes, and environmentally friendly! Once an ugly duckling this home has been transformed into a show stopper. Every surface has been touched. This completely remodeled 2 bed/1 bath Mill Valley home with unobstructed views of Muir Woods and valley below packs a punch with a large 2-car garage and SunPower solar panels with 2-240v outlets for Electric Vehicle charging.

The open floor plan, wall of windows and large decks are part of a larger drama where sun drenched days can quickly change to wind and swirling fog that clings to the hills to spectacular sunsets. You won’t want to leave home when you can sit in front of a cozy fireplace, entertain friends in style or gather

I had the pleasure of representing the buyer on the purchase of a “view home” in the Marin Country Club Neighborhood in Novato. Situated at the top of a long, private driveway, 66 Capilano Drive, has panoramic views of the golf course and surrounding hills. The kitchen features a floor to ceiling greenhouse window and the living room has sliding glass doors along the one wall opening to the view. Built in the late 1970’s, this home has a great floor plan and features 2 beds, 2 baths, a big open loft ideal for an office.  There are decks off each room.

I also want to give a shout-out to the listing agent who is a seasoned professional and was a pleasure to work with. Working  together, we were able to create a win-win for both buyer and seller.

The sums of money changing hands in residential real estate transactions are considerable, often hundreds of thousands of dollars, and sometimes more. The preferred method of moving funds is the wire transfer; it's fast, and up until recently is has been secure and reliable. In an active real estate market like ours in Marin County, there can be several thousand such transfers every year. Nationwide, these regular transactions of large amounts of cash have attracted the attention of some very sophisticated criminals who have found a way to hijack communications between title/escrow companies, real estate agents, and their clients. These thieves intercept the emails, alter the wiring instructions, and then pass them on, hoping the alterations, which

14 Love Court Fairfax CA 94930 - Making Dreams Come True!

I take my fiduciary duty to my clients very seriously. I will negotiate with fierce intensity on behalf of my clients and look out for their best interests from the moment we first meet to well...forever.

Unlocking inventory, increasing the number homes for sale and creating more homeownership opportunity for younger buyers is the goal behind the California Association of Realtors (C.A.R.) 2018 Property Tax Portability Initiative. Realtors throughout California are collecting signatures to get this Initiative on the November 2018 ballot. It's my understanding that the Initiative is supposed to remove the barriers that keep Seniors 55 and older from selling their homes.  That would mean allowing Seniors to carry their property tax base to a replacement property anywhere in California and removing the restriction that the replacement property be of equal or lesser value.

Here’s the story behind this initiative. Seniors throughout California (Marin has

I had the pleasure of representing the sellers, who have been long-time business owners in San Rafael. At the end of December, they decided to embark on a new phase in their life and in January made a trip to Southern Oregon where they found the perfect home. Everything happened more quickly than they expected.

Fortunately, their 4 bed/2.5 bath home in the rural Black Point neighborhood of Novato was in beautiful showing condition and ready to go on the market. Timing is everything. My clients were ahead of the spring market when there was every little inventory and the buyers, a young family, were decisive and ready to go. It worked out beautifully for everyone.

If you are ready to retire and thinking about relocating to Southern Oregon or
