I know you've read and heard over and over what a highly competitive market we are in. The Bay Area always has been a very desirable place to live, and with low inventory, high demand and lots of buyers out there (both all cash and financing buyers), this truly is a strong sellers market.

Residents of Corte Madera and Larkspur alike are looking to add Corte Madera to the name of the school district that it shares with Larkspur as a two-school district. Neil Cummins Elementary School is in Corte Madera and Hall Middle School is in Larkspur. The new (old) name would be the Larkspur-Corte Madera School District.


Corte Madera is currently home to 814 of the students in the district as opposed to 469 students living in Larkspur, according to the Marin IJ.
