As fellow modern homeowners and enthusiasts, we've provided contact information and links for companies, service providers and other general resources that may be of value to you.


This list includes service providers and companies that we, our clients or neighbors have had a positive experience with and would recommend to others based on historical experience. This resource list does not imply a specific vendor recommendation or endorsement but is simply designed to serve as an informational resource. You should carefully evaluate and screen all service and goods providers.

Please visit this page often since this list will be updated throughout the year as a value-added service to Marin Modern Real Estate website visitors and local modern home fans.
