Sometimes things are meant to be and sometimes you have to make them happen!  I represented the sellers on 129 Greenfield who became buyers for 16 Mariners Circle.  Long-time (41 years) West End Neighborhood neighbors and a former San Rafael City Council member, my clients/friends had started thinking about selling 3 years ago.  Thoughtful planners, they didn't want to make a misstep at this stage in their life. They called me several months ago, both husband and wife were on the same page.....it was time to sell and leave the stairs and the upkeep of a big home to someone younger.  The important part of the equation for them was to be able to take advantage of Proposition 60, whereby they could keep their Prop. 13 property tax base if they purchased a

Who would have guessed, certainly not Tim Bowen, that he would start his own business, Play-Well TEKnologies, and be adored by parents and kids alike?  A 20-year resident of the West End Neighborhood of San Rafael, Tim's circuitous route to fame included turning the master bedroom of his home into a LEGO® incubator.  Instead of planning his career path, he let his inquisitive mind lead to jobs and projects that he found interesting and challenging.

You might call Tim Bowen the Steve Jobs of LEGO® except he started in a bedroom instead of a garage. The mission for Play-Well TEKnology mirror's Tim's own life experience and his desire to nurture the skills he found valuable: an inquisitive mind, creative expression, self-reliance, self-confidence, an

22 Sandalwood Court, San Rafael CA 94903 - Just Sold!


I love my job! No, really...it took me a long, long, long time to find the right one for me. Many years in industries I tried to love but Real Estate combines all the best parts of every other job. One of the standouts is I get to meet some amazing people and help them. I am a cancer so helping people is instinctual. There is something very satisfying about partnering with my clients, after they decide to work with me, and trust me with the single biggest purchase of their lifetime. Awesome right!

I first met my Sandalwood clients on a rainy Sunday in my office. They told me they had just sold a condo in Virginia, relocated and were living in San Francisco. We spent about an hour

midcentury modern view home in san rafael located on Sunny Oaks

Are you tired of the same boring houses with no soul? If so then I have one special architectural and private property for you! 

I would like to let you know that I just listed a super unique mid-century modern home (built in 1951)  which is located at 100 Sunny Oaks Drive in San Rafael. This home is extremely unique both in terms of architectural design as well as location. This new listing on Sunny Oaks is located at the top of a quiet street on a flat level lot and has expansive views of Marin which include Mount Tamalpais, wetlands, rolling hills and meadows. There is no other property like this currently on the market.

Today I attended a celebration to honor the life of David Faw, who passed away on May 24th.  David is well-known to realtors who sell property in San Rafael because he's been the go-to guy for resale inspections for many years.  Being the "resale inspector" was a very small slice of who David was and why he was so well liked.  He was a people person who liked to jaw bone with realtors, see homes and keep his finger on the pulse of the market.  He liked real estate. 

Not one to retire, he contracted with the City of San Rafael for many years to do resale inspections.  At one time the City decided to tighten their belt and have a City employee take over the inspections. They quickly discovered contracting with David was much more cost-effective and
