Cari Gennarelli's Area of Expertise
Living in San Francisco and working in Marin gives me a unique perspective for potential buyers thinking of making the move from SF to Marin or empty nesters considering that pied de terre they have always dreamed of owning in San Francisco.
I love working with people relocating from across the country or across the bay. It gives me an opportunity to share my passion for both counties and all they have to offer.
Each neighborhood in San Francisco has it’s own flavor. Each city in Marin offers something different. Which one is right for you? Let me help you navigate the landscape and decide.
I am also a certified Ecobroker and continue to educate myself on the greening of real estate, construction and lifestyle choices. As an Ecobroker I educate my clients on making healthier, sustainable and energy saving choices when buying or selling a home. Virtually every residential real estate transaction involves some form of home improvement. Why not choose No-VOC paint or energy efficient appliances? Why not low flow toilets or double paned windows? There are a number of small changes we can all make to conserve our resources and create healthier environments inside our homes!

Client Testimonials for Cari Gennarelli
Thank you for this follow up opportunity on my buying experience with your organization. As a short sale with a first and second loan, my purchase was arduous and took longer than I had initially hoped, but also clearly demonstrated the value that Cari afforded to me as my representative.
I am extremely pleased with Cari's focus, responsiveness and diligent communication with Agents, Brokers and Bank representatives, but most of all myself during the course of the process until the deal was closed. I have no doubt that her diligence in communication with all involved helped close the deal as soon as possible and more importantly gave me peace of mind.
She was a pleasure to work with and clearly went the extra mile starting, with my search phase as she would identify and send me select places that matched my very specific criteria. To be specific, I was impressed and very grateful that she took the time to send me personal emails with specific listings that I could view as opposed to just rely on the Listings tool for me to find potential places. That attention to detail built trust and gave me comfort that I had found the right representative which continued all the way through to the close when I received a very nicely organized and detailed folder of all my paperwork.
I have a few colleagues who are considering entering the market and I have been enthusiastic in recommending Cari.
- Adam B.
Having worked with Cari in the past, I already knew her to be organized and professional, however I can’t tell you how impressed I was with her knowledge of the process and the rules in an ever-changing industry.
Cari was critical to helping me avoid a number of roadblocks and delays that I was completely unaware of, despite my prior home buying experience. Her ability to navigate the obstacles, find solutions and keep the process on track was very refreshing. I can honestly say, I was most impressed that her dedication, energy and involvement was consistent throughout the experience, from helping me find a property though handing me the keys.
Not only would I use Cari again for any future transactions, but she is one of the few people – in an industry – that I would recommend to my friends and family.
- Andrew A.
Cari was magic…..very professional, very caring, very smart, very efficient…..totally understood us, our needs and that of the tenants. She found the perfect tenant very fast….we highly recommend her to our friends and family. You are VERY fortunate to have her. She far surpasses the two other veteran realtors we have worked with.
