The Modern Christmas Tree-WOW!


The modern Christmas tree/Holiday tree/Memory tree is a modern piece of art that illuminates, glimmers, shines and sparkles; a truly unique take of the Christmas tree. The concept of the modern memory tree dates back to the 1960's when architect, and engineer Lawrence "Bud" Stoecker took his love for A-frame house design and combined it with his love for Christmas, family and innovation.  Now 50 years later his grandson has created a hip modern design that is sure to delight as the disco ball and crystal ornaments cast a beautiful light show around the room.

Want to take an up close look at one of these modern trees...Marin Modern Real Estate  has a beautiful blue memory tree displayed in our lobby (downtown San

Winter Lawn Prep: 4 easy tips


Did you know that doing a few things at the beginning of winter can give great results for your lawn next spring? Your lawn will continue to grow roots even during the dormant season so take a little time now to reap future benefits.

1.       Utilize a mower deck system that mulches leaves and blows them back onto the lawn.

2.       Aerate the lawn especially if it has received heavy traffic and has become compacted.

3.       Utilize a vertical cutting machine for dethatching scores about ¼" to ½" and then reseed.

4.       Don't forget to fertilize and water after aerating or dethatching.  This allows nutrients to reach the root system.


Lawns add to beautiful curb appeal and wonderful usability to a

My 2790 Heatherstone Dr. listing in Marinwood sold in a heartbeat! My sellers were smart and got inspections done up front before the house hit the market. This enabled perspective buyers to know what they were buying prior to making an offer. This tactic is worth the money spent as it really helps to eliminate escrows falling apart after inspections and additional negotiating. We closed escrow today @ $625,000.

This fantastic Marinwood single story "diamond in the rough" has a lot of potential with 4 bedrooms 2 full baths, multi-purpose room and pool. Harwood floors were under carpets in living room, hall and bedrooms and the location can't be beat-Dixie School District easy access to open space, 101, shopping & transportation.

It was an honor

 17 Clark St. in the Gerstle Park area of San Rafael has new owners! I had the privilege of helping my colleague, David Shapiro, with this sale for one of his buyer clients.  It was a multiple offer situation, but due to the buyer's strengths and a clean tight offer-we won! The house, a 2 bed 2 bath with remodeled kitchen and bath, sits across the street from Gerstle Park and is walking distance to downtown San Rafael.  It closed for $650,500.

The real estate market in Marin definitely slowed down around the middle of August when school started, but it seems to have picked up recently as many buyers want to purchase before the end of the year. Now is a great time to buy because a lot of the competition is busy with the Holidays or worn out from

85 Lincoln Park San Anselmo, CA 94960: SOLD!

Set at the top of the street amongst the trees this custom 4 bedroom, 2 bath home wowed my buyers the minute they walked in. 85 Lincoln Park is a stylish home with many indoor and outdoor living spaces while also being a quick walk to down town San Anselmo.

My clients had looked at many areas in Marin as well as Sonoma County and knew what they wanted but just couldn't find it. They were heading out on a Sunday to look at open homes.  I suggested 85 Lincoln Park (not on their list) and they loved it.

Our offer was submitted and the negotiating went well. We were hit with a bizarre challenge in underwriting which in the end was solved mainly due to my client "tweeting" about the unfair practices of

100 Creamery Road in San Geronimo has new owners! Set on a large level sunny lot, this property offers space for gardening, playing, working and wonderful San Geronimo Valley living. My clients had been looking for a while but did not expect to find this rare gem of a property complete with the original San Geronimo Post Office. With the amazing help of lender Charlie Christensen, my clients were pre-approved and in escrow in a matter of hours.  Having the right team-realtor and lender makes a huge difference.
