Hilary Davis, Realtor & Green Home Specialist
About Hilary Davis
A Marin County native, I was born and raised in San Rafael and went to school locally, earning degrees from College of Marin and San Francisco State University. After graduating from college, I worked in the photography business and eventually started my own video production company. For 15 years I videotaped, produced and directed hundreds of events, corporate productions and a travel advisory show on local cable.
With a lifelong career in sales and customer service, I chose to be a Realtor in 2001 because it combines two of my favorite types of work, helping people and managing projects. I pride myself as a consummate professional who listens with care to your needs, wants and desires then powerfully negotiates to maximize value and get results. Experience, knowledge, and superior negotiation skills make a real difference; you will find me to be your trusted advisor throughout the transaction process.
My goal, as your real estate advisor, is to make the process of buying or selling a home smooth and rewarding. Your time is important; therefore, I provide fast access to quality information such as up-to-the-moment home search results, home value and pricing trends, current mortgage programs, as well as neighborhood and school statistics. The opportunity to serve as a real estate professional is a privilege I take seriously.
My personal motto: “Listen very carefully, communicate effectively, pay attention to detail and always do more than is expected." Your net result is greater peace of mind before, during and after each transaction.
Hilary Davis' Area of Expertise
My love for the environment and real estate has lead me to become educated on green building practices; from easy greening solutions the complex building sciences. As a green realtor, I love to share information with my clients and community regarding special loans, rebates, programs, and practices geared to help people to be more sustainable. I often give workshops on energy and water conservation, energy efficient lighting options, toxic free living options, waste reduction and recycling as well as safety and emergency preparedness. As an outdoor enthusiast you will find me regularly on Marin trails, either hiking or mountain biking. I love spending time with my husband, Robert Werner, and young son Jayden in the garden, riding bikes, playing outside and relaxing!

Recent Client Testimonials for Hilary Davis
We want you to know and share with anyone who is thinking about working with you, that you're the best realtor either of us has ever worked with, and that spans almost 40 years and many realtors. You truly made us feel like we were your only listing because of all the time and energy you put into both selling our home and then buying the new one.
The best was how wonderful you made our home look prior to selling it. Your "staging" was beautiful and definitely made the house look inviting. Neighbors told us how impressed they were when they saw it at open houses which you held almost every week of our listing. It didn't take long to sell despite the difficult economic times.
Paperwork isn't something anyone enjoys and you took all the hassle out by walking us through it all. Even when we were out of town we could do the online "docu-signing" so easily.
We're about to move into our new home and it's great that you're staying in touch with the sellers' realtor until the very end, making sure every last detail is taken care of. We know we'll be in this home for many years but should we ever need a realtor again we would of course call you. We've already given your name to many friends.
Thanks for all of your hard work.
- Eileen & John S.
I want to express my gratitude for all the work and personal attention you put into my purchase of the condominium at 208 Headlands Court this past month. My experience of working with you is that you are a true professional who watches every detail of the purchase transaction for her client. I was especially impressed that you went after finding me even more money from the seller once the inspections were completed. I didn't expect this very pleasant surprise. Perhaps the most helpful was the fact that you encouraged me to read every document involved in the transaction so that I would know all the important information. You're hard driven but with a healthy sense of humor. Thanks for keeping me on task!
I also want to thank you for your referrals to local companies that could help with the inspections and the lists of handymen.
It has been a pleasure working with you and I now have a
realtor in Marin County that I can depend on, refer people to, and hopefully, even
call a friend.
- Janis D.
With pleasure I write to offer thanks and commendation of the outstanding service rendered to us by Hilary Davis of Marin Modern Residential Real Estate.
We have recently relocated to Marin County from our home country of New Zealand. In doing our due diligence on coming to Marin we searched real estate on the Internet and happened upon Marin Modern’s excellent and informative site. We signed up to receive updates of properties and Hilary Davis responded.
Hilary’s understanding of Marin County has been invaluable. She grew up in the County and knows it like the back of her hand. We have found her to be thoroughly professional and courteous in all her dealings with us, and especially in helping us think through the types of property available within our budget. She appears to us to have gone the second mile on numerous occasions in giving competent advice and in in matching us with pertinent expertise. Through our dealings with Hilary over the past year we feel like we have made a good friend, whose wisdom and experience I trust a great deal.
I unequivocally commend Hilary Davis to any prospective purchasers as a realtor who can be trusted and relied upon. She knows her industry well, and especially the Marin County market, and we are absolutely delighted with the purchase of our home through her services.
- Brian & Liz W.
We just bought our dream house through Hilary. It took six months of hard slogging before we found the right place.
Throughout that time Hilary was always on the job. She constantly brought us along a learning curve as what we really wanted and advised us never to settle for a place we didn’t both love. It didn’t deter her to show us place after place.
She’s so honest and straightforward that it was easy to establish a relation of trust.
She let us know by her actions that our needs came ahead of her being able to close a deal.
She’s intelligent and was always upbeat, reachable and through.
We were lucky to have her lead us through this big life choice.
- Harris C.
