West End neighbors, Helen Stanley and Lori Davis teamed up to create signs for the Davidson Middle School Garden Club.  Built in 2005 by the San Rafael Harbor Rotary Club, P.E. teacher Leilani Siri started the Garden Club to teach kids where their food comes from and to promote healthy eating.  Lori Davis, the Director of Environmental Education with LIFT-Levantate wrote a grant for $2500 to build an outdoor kitchen in the garden. Together Leilani, Lori and partners such as Kaiser, Whole Foods, San Rafael Harbor Rotary and others,  have created an outstanding teaching opportunity for students and teachers at Davidson Middle School.

SOLD -  35 Billou St, San Rafael, CA 94901.

Terrific value in San Rafael. A very sweet home on a very sweet street in a charming little neighborhood. A perfect house for my first time buyers from the city. This house offers all they wanted, good sqf, big mature level back yard, functionl one-level floor plan. To find a nice condition single family home in central San Rafael for under $700K is tough. This 3BR/2BA home is what many buyers hope to find in 2015. It sold for $675,000. I hope the inventory will spike after Super Bowl because this "drought" that the housing market is experiencing is not fun for anyone. Let the rain and inventory start flowing!

If you are looking to buy or sell anywhere in San Rafael or in Marin County this year, please let

Clients Sharlene and Joel purchased their Upper Lucas Valley Eichler in the summer of 2011.  Over the past couple of years they have completely transformed the landscaping to compliment the clean lines of their home. Since many Marin Modern clients are Eichler homeowners or drawn to modern architecture, I asked Sharlene to share her vision and inspiration for the design.

Vision:

Sharlene's vision started from the point of view that an Eichler is like an Ikebana - less is more, and empty space is just as important as the flower. The landscape should draw your eye to the architecture. With all of the glass along the back of the home it's important to have something interesting to look at while inside. When done right, the

Who will take care of Mittens and Socks when you're out of town for the holidays?  Not to be confused with Dogs who  love you and  want to be with you.  Dogs will gladly hop in the backseat and go anywhere you go.  Better yet, most motels and hotels would rather have a dog for a guest than actual people. Cats, on the other hand, are a horse of a different color, so to speak. They don't want to go with you and you don't want to go with them!  That's not to say you don't love your furry friends but they don't take kindly to change and travel.That's why the Cat's Cradle was invented.  Conveniently located in Central San Rafael, the Cat's Cradle, is a kitty camp du jour.  Think, new friends, feline companionship, trees to climb, toys to play with and many

It may not be sexy, but even the most die hard packrat can't help but get excited when the word FREE is put in front of Shredding & Recycling. This past Saturday I sponsored a Free Shredding & Electronics Recycling Event for friends, clients and my West End neighbors at the Marin Modern office in the heart of the West End Neighborhood of San Rafael.

At 9 a.m. people started to arrive by car and on foot with boxes of documents to be shredded along with old computers, phones, CD players...you name it!  Ron, with Integrity Shred, let everyone watch their documents, paper clips and binders go through the shredder and Mike from Renew Computers picked up the electronic equipment at the end of the day.

It was a great event and one I plan to repeat

I had the pleasure of representing the buyers for this extensively remodeled home in the Dominican neighborhood of San Rafael.  Entering the home you are greeted to an open floor plan filled with light and a living room that opens onto a front patio entertaining area. The beautifully remodeled kitchen and family room open to the back of the home with a private yard and beautiful setting. Big windows and lots of light are a defining feature of this home. It has a great flow for entertaining and indoor/outdoor living.  It features hardwood floors and 3 bedrooms and two full bathrooms on the main level, which includes the master suite.  The lower level has an additional living space and fireplace with its own entrance and a full bathroom and bedroom.

What started as an interview with Lou Thoelecke about the "Traffic Circle" in front of his house on Santa Margarita in San Rafael turned into a fascinating conversation with a West End neighbor who is a passionate environmentalist, accomplished winemaker, a Bronze Life Master at Bridge, a musician, trained chef, former competitive tennis player, real estate investor and one-time neighbor to Jerry Garcia.  Between sipping Six Corners Zinfandel, I took notes for the Neighborhood Spotlight column in the West End Neighborhood Newsletter.

It was a pleasure to assist my client, the buyer for 1 Salem Cove, to find a home that offers a carefree lifestyle on one level and is convenient to all the things he likes to do.  Located in Spinnaker Point, a community of townhomes in Central San Rafael, 1 Salem Cove has been beautifully remodeled and meticulously maintained.  It features 3 bedrooms, two full baths, attached 2-car garage and a corner lot with a fenced yard and deck surrounded by the Bay walking trail.  After living in Fairfax for over 35 years in a home I call the Stairway to Heaven because of the views (103 stairs from the street to the front door) my client feels like he has found heaven at Spinnaker Point. No more stairs and his dog Dexter has a walking trail to boot.  1 Salem
