The joy of being a realtor is when your experience, knowledge of the market and relationships enables you to be a matchmaker for a unique property in search of a very specific buyer.  That's what happened with 17 Redwood Road in Fairfax.

Sweeping views of Ross Valley compliment this magical and private 2 bedroom/1 bath hillside retreat in Fairfax.  What started out as a summer cottage in 1922 evolved over the years adding a little bit of serendipity and quirkiness with each owner.  When my client, the seller, called to say she had taken a new job and wanted to sell, I had just started working with the perfect buyers in search of a peaceful and private lifestyle in the Fairfax hills. They were invited to the Redwood Road Annual Block party before

I had the pleasure of working with a fellow Marin Modern colleague who had the buyer for my listing at 8 Ace Court.  Located in desirable Canon Village, this light and bright 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath townhome backs to open space.  It feels like a peaceful retreat and the best of all worlds. Surrounded by open space with biking and hiking all around, it is minutes from vibrant downtown Fairfax where live music can be enjoyed most evenings, great restaurants, the Fairfax Movie Theater, organic ice cream at The Scoop and much, much more.  Public transportation stops in front of Canon Village for an easy commute East to 101 or to West Marin.

I had the pleasure of representing the seller of 66 Hector Lane in Novato.  I represented her when she purchased 66 Hector Lane in 2015. This 2 bedroom, 1 bath condo with a detached single car garage in Southern Novato had been extensively remodeled several years ago.  We were fortunate to receive a good offer before this condo went on the market which enabled the seller to relocate to Southern California without the worry of having two mortgages for an extended period of time.  The timing worked out beautifully for the seller and it allowed the buyers to purchase their first home.  It was truly a win-win for everyone. The condo sold today for $370,000.

If you are buying or selling, give me a call.  I take pride in creating a win-win scenario for

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
