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

It is with bitter sweet emotions that I announce the sale of my family home, 117 Prospect Dr. San Rafael CA 94901

I am grateful to my parents for providing me with the opportunity of growing up in Marin. Our home was simple yet the lot was large; a perfect combination for a family to grow and flourish. I had a blast growing up on San Rafael Hill and feel lucky to still be living in Marin!

paul-jensen-3_196_02 The West End Neighborhood Association held its annual meeting this past week.  Paul Jensen, Director of Community Development for the City of San Rafael was the guest speaker.  He updated West End neighbors on a variety of development projects and activities currently underway.Some highlights from the meeting include:

Ace Hardware is coming to the West End - Although it may be a month or two, an Ace Hardware Store will be opening up in what was formerly Yardbirds Plant Nursery.  The space has been sitting vacant for over 5+ years since Home Depot bought out Yardbirds Hardware and Lumber.  I can already hear cheers from the surrounding neighborhoods.  We have all missed Yardbirds and the convenience of a nearby hardware store. It will be a welcome

I had the pleasure of representing the buyers of 15 Dowitcher Way located in Baypoint Lagoon in San Rafael. After spending several winters in San Francisco to be near their adult children and grandchildren, Barbara and John decided it was time to sell their family home in Massachusetts and move West.

It may be a hot seller's market in Marin but how you prepare your home for sale will determine whether you get top dollar. When you first decide to sell, it's easy to identify the big things that need to be done such as cleaning or replacing carpet, refinishing hardwood floors, painting all or part of the interior of the house, freshening the landscaping and de-cluttering.  These items alone can seem daunting.

When that happens, it's easy to miss the little details that make your home stand out from the competition....and there will be more competition as the spring and summer season get into full swing.

As homeowners, we don't see the little things because they have become invisible to us after years of living in a

There weren't any sirens or flashing lights.  I leaped out of bed, threw on a coat, slipped into my tennis shoes and ran out into the rain to see if there was smoke coming from our house.  Reassured that our house wasn't on fire, I walked our property in the dark looking for trees that might have toppled thinking that might be the reason for the fire truck.

As I crawled back into bed with my heart still racing, I could see from the bedroom window the meandering beam of flashlights and
