• Beware of Expensive Real estate.

    To be successful in real estate, you must always and consistently put your clients' best interests first. When you do, your personal needs will be realized beyond your greatest expectations.
  • From Our Real estate to Yours

    Real estate sales was perfect training for the experience to go into public life because you learn to accept rejection, learn to meet new people, learn to work with people and find common ground. That's the way you sell houses... that's also the way you win over constituency.

5 Glam Trends for Your Neglected Guest Bedroom

It’s hard to believe the holidays are once again upon us—although they’re going to look a lot different from those in years past.

With coronavirus rates on the rise across the U.S., health and government officials are advising people to maintain social distancing and not gather in large groups. Still, if you’re committed to creating a holiday quarantine pod with just a couple other people—isolating before and after the event, and maybe even getting tested—you might be able to put that guest room into action after all.

And even if that’s not in the cards, this is a great time to refresh your guest room—while those loved ones are on your mind, but not actually there to get in the way. You might even enjoy a new space to get away within your own home! And next year, it’ll be ready to welcome visitors.

Marin County Masterpiece Quickly Embraces a Buyer

It didn’t take long for offers to flow in for a modern home in Mill Valley, CA, that melds right into the hills near Mount Tamalpais.

The 5,000-square-foot residence on Lee Street landed on the market in late October for $11.95 million. It was available for less than two weeks before attracting an offer. It’s now off market as a deal moves forward.

The airy abode offers a seamless transition between interior and exterior, taking advantage of Marin County’s temperate climate.

“All of the [sliding glass] doors either completely disappear, as pocket doors … or they’re just oversized huge sliders that open, with a huge opening,” says the listing agent, Lisa Smith.


“I don’t think I’ve ever sold a house that has this much indoor-outdoor feeling to it when you’re in the main living room space.”

U.S. Housing Market Takes a Breather But Stays Hot

The juggernaut that has become the U.S. housing market finally paused to take a breath last week. But even with buyers and sellers taking a step back temporarily, the industry remained hot.

During the week ending Nov. 7, both buyers and sellers averted their attention from relocations and instead focused on current events, according to Thursday’s report from realtor.com.

“Between the presidential election [on Nov. 3] and a new wave of coronavirus cases, buyers and sellers had a lot of reasons to pause last week,” Danielle Hale, realtor.com’s chief economist, said in the report.

Sellers avoided putting their homes on the market, with the number of new listings last week dropping from an already low point, the report said.

New listings were down 12% annually during the week ending Nov. 7, worse than the prior week’s decrease of 9% and a significant fall from the week ending Oct. 24, when
