Finding the your dream home

 Network, network, network!

if a property is coming to market our clients will know about it.

Once a home is found, expert negotiations, the best in inspections and advice and our remarkable support system makes the escrow smooth and successful. These connections over time are ones you can rely

Exceeding Expectations

Selling your home can be a stressful and emotional time. Real Marin Group's goal is to take as much of this away as we can. How do we do it? Years of experience, support through the right people and a fabulous parent company.

We being our experience and local knowledge to evaluating and pricing a property equally your best chance at success. Pricing is key and we support each other in fine tuning pricing on difficult properties whenever possible. 

When a seller lists with us we bring our expanded team to the table. Marketing, property inspections, Escrow and Title experts the list goes on and on. You never get a second chance to make a good first impression and part of this is providing reliable information to buyers so they can make an offer that is solid right from the start.

Compass our parent company has several programs designed to reduce the stress sellers feel. How about staging and prepping a home to show and not having to pay for this until the close of escrow! The Concierge program does just that with a zero interest loan to the seller. Homes prepped like this sell for more with less inconvenience. 

We've been told that sometimes a seller is reluctantly to sell because they "can't buy until they sell their home first." Compass has a Bridge Financing program that could take this worry away.

Bottom line - list your home to sell with us, it will sell in less time and for the best price possible.

Now isn't THAT what ever sellers wants?
