Mt. Tam (Mount Tamalpais) in Marin County is considered by many to be the birthplace of modern day mountain biking, but the truth is that some form of mountain biking has been around for almost a century. 

The word "infantry" refers to the division of the army that enters fighting/combat on foot and In the 1800’s there was an army division called the 25th Infantry Bicycle Corp whose job it was to put together bikes that could carry their gear over rough ground and terrain.

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.

Another happy Buyer Client! 80 Roundtree Blvd. San Rafael, CA 94903: SOLD!

It took several offers and much persistence, but in the end the property my client closed on was exactly what we were looking for-single story, Dixie School district and in Marinwood.

Over the years I have done many real estate transactions in Marinwood and like this one, in the Roundtree Complex. This area of San Rafael is appealing because of the award-winning school district, proximity to open space, fantastic weather, affordability and easy access for commuting (just

What do Dixie Elementary, Kentfield, Larkspur-Corte Madera, Novato Unified, Ross Elementary, San Rafael City, and Tamalpais Union High School Districts all have in common? They are the elite few school districts in California to have some of their schools presented with Gold Ribbon Awards.
