The moment you walk into this house you are struck by the incredible view. Stretching from Mt Tam to Mt Diablo, over the Richardson Bay to the Richmond San Rafael Bridge and all the beautiful Marin Landscape between, few homes have been so blessed. You cannot help but say "Wow!"

This is not a cookie cutter home. Looking for a home that looks like all the rest, don't come to this home. It has been lovingly cared for by the original owner with an artist's touch. The colors in warm rich hues carry you from room to room providing a wonderful space for living.

The main level has a living room with a beautiful solarium style space, vaulted ceilings, parquet wood floors. Living and dining help make this open floor plan perfect for entertaining. The kitchen has stylish cabinetry, Sub-Zero refrigerator, DCS Range and Miele dishwasher. There is a family room directly off the kitchen that opens to the private entry patio. There is a one of a kind half bath with hand-painted ceiling and torn paper wall-coverings.

On the upper level is the primary suite with its own view deck. Luxurious bath and walk in closets. Vaulted ceilings with a tall bright window make this a light and bright room. The view from the deck takes your breath away, as you watch the twinkling lights at night.

On the lower level are two generously sized bedrooms (one was recently used as an office). Each enjoys the captivating view. They share another luxurious bath with walls of venetian plaster.

The vibrant community of Tam Valley with its hip restaurants and Good Earth are close by. A California Distinguished school is at the entrance to the neighborhood. Neighborhood trails take you there. Speaking of trails there are miles of hiking and biking at the end of every street in Marinview. It's hard to imagine SF is just 11 mins over the bridge.

Finding the your dream home

You are not the only one who thinks Marin is the place to be! Buying a home can be a competitive situation. How do we help our buyers get an edge in finding and buying their dream home?

 Network, network, network!

Just the collaboration of the fab five gives RMG clients an early heads up to inventory that may be getting ready for market. In addition, Compass Coming Soon, Top Agent Network and Marin Real Estate Group insures

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

on to have your goals paramount throughout the transaction.

It's a happy day to hand over the keys give a few five fives and celebrate your new Marin life!



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?



We are there for you!

Once escrow closes often a owner will look around and wonder "hmmm where did my Realtor go?"

RMG clients know we are a text, phone call or email away.

Many times buyers will be thinking about remodeling a home. We have resources that are like home owner gold. From kitchen remodels to landscape design we are happy to give you the benefit of our combined resources. Buyers also are just settling into Marin and may not know where to go for just about everything! We are asked about pre-schools, Doctors, restaurants, shopping and more than you can imagine. As Realtors for so many years and as Marin residents we all have our favorites and happily share what we know.

We also keep our clients up to date on the changes in the Real Estate Market and are always happy to consult with clients about how the changes relate to them and their house.
