126 Surrey Lane, San Rafael CA 94903 - A New Beginning!


I absolutely love working with first time homebuyers. They are so excited, willing to learn and very appreciative. It's an honor to be a part of the first time homebuyer experience! 126 Surrey Lane, San Rafael CA 94903 located in The Meadows complex in North San Rafael, will be the perfect spot for my clients to start their lives together.


With some help from parents, my clients were able to purchase this two bedroom, 1.5 bath end unit townhouse style condominium in The Meadows. The previous owner did some lovely updates to the bathrooms and kitchen making it move in ready. They have a spacious patio off the living area where they can relax outdoors, b-b-queue and entertain.

After an outpouring of interest and over 10 offers, 1 Neame sold for $750,000.  This Spanish Style Bungalow with loads of character captured the imagination of many prospective buyers. Located in the West End Neighborhood of San Rafael on a street with beautiful Mediterranean and Spanish style homes, 1 Neame had been neglected for many years.  It needed a buyer with the vision, experience and wherewithal to renovate and bring it back to its original glory.  We found such a buyer and the neighbors are thrilled. It will be interesting to watch the transformation by the new owner and I expect to see it come back on the market with even more interest once it's finished.

I am so excited for my buyers that closed on 415 Sylvia Way, San Rafael today!  I met this darling couple at an open house over a year ago. We had been out to see several homes over the last year and it wasn't until I found this gorgeous town house off the market that they finally put in an offer.  With a baby on the way, they can turn the key and move right in to this upgraded, easy living home!  Located in the lovely Green Oaks complex, it is located close to hiking trails, Scotty's Market, great schools and the complex comes with a pool and clubhouse.


The outdoor brick patio off of the dialed in kitchen and dining room, back to nature where deer roam and birds chirp all day long.  There are no neighbors behind peering in.  Also, new wood floors,

I am so excited for my first time home buyers that scooped up this spacious PUD in the gorgeous Dominican area of San Rafael.  I was a bit discouraged when I first took this sweet couple on because they wanted to take advantage of their option to buy with an FHA loan.  With a budget of $600K, I knew they would not be able to get a single family home which left me condos, townhomes or PUD's as the only option.  Most condos and towhomes are not approved for FHA loans in Marin anymore, so talk about being limited in options.  While I couldn't blame them for wanting to use a loan with only 3.5% down, the market has been so fierce with multiple offers, bidding wars and cash buyers beating out anyone with small down payments in the last couple of months.  And

Decorating and accessorizing your home just got a lot more fun with San Rafael's newest furniture store, Port & Manor.  Located in the West End of San Rafael on Third Street just before Arrivederci Café. it's easy to miss as you whiz by on your way somewhere else.  I had passed it many times always curious as the showroom window flashed by.  Finally, I made a point to check it out this past weekend on a walk to downtown San Rafael. What a pleasant surprise!  It was so different than what I expected and totally worth a visit. It had very fun, whimsical and colorfully painted furniture, cool and unique hanging light fixtures, accent pieces, lots of accessories to dress up and accessorize your home and much more.

I had the pleasure of representing the buyer who relocated to Marin from Watsonville a year ago to be near her daughter and two grandchildren. Roslyn was referred to me by Scott Sohle of US Bank in Mill Valley. We hit it off immediately. Roslyn had been renting an apartment in Larkspur Landing and was anxious to be a homeowner again.  She knew what she wanted and it didn't take long to find the ideal home for her in San Rafael; a light, spacious 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath townhome with a large enclosed patio for gardening. The front opens onto an expansive lawn area and view of the pool, perfect for her grandchildren this summer. It was a good value at $412,500.
