 I had the pleasure of representing the buyers on the purchase of their beautiful new home in the very desirable Rush Creek Neighborhood of Novato. Built in 1998 and situated on a little over half an acre, this home offers privacy and an open floor plan on one level with high ceilings and an abundance of windows and light. It features 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a 3-car attached garage with separation and privacy for guests, an office plus a big open kitchen and family room. It is beautifully landscaped with fruit trees, a waterfall, swimming pool, spa and lots of room to entertain outside. It truly is the perfect balance between an outdoor lifestyle and indoor comfort. 30 Saddle Wood Drive sold for $1.7Million.

Modern & Stylish

Built in 2005, this top floor 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo is light and modern with spectacular pastoral views. The living room has a vaulted ceiling, gas fireplace and sliding glass door that opens to a patio with views to the Silviera Ranch. The kitchen is well designed with plenty of cabinets, granite countertops and a stackable washer and dryer. The floor plan is ideal because there is separation between the two bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate a variety of lifestyles…home office, children, or a roommate. The Clubhouse features a kitchen, living room with TV, children’s play area and exercise equipment.  There are 2 covered parking spaces and the Homeowner's Dues are $400 per month.

purple meters       &     meters

 

Have you seen the folks in bright yellow shirts sweeping our downtown San Rafael sidewalks? Have you seen the purple meters scattered around downtown San Rafael?  The folks in yellow shirts are part of the Downtown Streets Team and the purple meters are part of Put Your Change To Work program, which is a way to discourage panhandling.  What?  Read on!

The Downtown Streets Team is an organization that believes that by having a job and being able to take care of ones’ own basic needs is the center piece to helping folks transition to a better life…and get them off the streets.

The Downtown Streets Team organization has changed lives in at least 6 bay area cities since 2007, and have been doing so in San Rafael, since 2013.

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

16 D Oliva Dr. Novato CA 94947: SOLD!sold16-oliva-dr_hilary_davis_500

What a pleasure it was to help my Seller clients prepare and sell their condo. With my seller on board, I got the unit properly prepared, staged, professionally photographed and on the market in record time. This was important to them as they had an out of town job offer and had to act fast. The unit showed beautifully and received multiple offers and sold quickly with an all cash offer.

I was not surprised as the location is fantastic and the views beautiful plus it's a desirable 2 bedroom 1.5 bath end unit in the Parkhaven Complex.

If you, or someone you know, is thinking about selling please have them call me for a no obligation free consultation. Doing things right pre-sale will make all the difference

Is The Bay Area Real Estate Market Starting To Change?

After years of record growth it looks like the Bay Area Real Estate market is finally starting to change, especially when it comes to homes priced at $2 million dollars or more. The days of bidding wars like those that were common during the last 4 years are slowly becoming a thing of the past, or at least decreasing. This is true for Marin County as well. Buyers are acting with less sense of urgency and are taking their time to find their dream homes. Sellers are reluctantly adjusting to this "new" trend. My advise to selling clients is to "under price" their homes to ensure a lot of buzz. This strategy often leads to more than one offer, which is all it takes to drive up the price.
