More About Me

Personal Background:

I am a San Francisco native and my family has been in the Bay Area for over a century. As a child I spent summers in Marin (when a summer cottage in Marin was affordable) and have now lived here for the past 25 years. My three children were educated at Bacich, Kent, and Redwood schools.

For over forty years I have been purchasing and remodeling houses in San Francisco, New York, and Marin, designing and overseeing all the work. My formal education was in fine arts, but with a grandfather, father, and brother all in architecture, renovating houses came naturally.

My office is in downtown Mill Valley. Here we maintain the feel of an old time, small town real estate office, yet we are part of an international real estate giant. I love the ambiance of being in the heart of Mill Valley, plus the opportunity to meet people from all over the world who drop in inquiring about renting or buying a home in Marin, or who are just looking for a restaurant or the route to Stinson Beach.

My background as a Marin resident and a San Francisco native enable me to assist both clients already living in Marin and those moving to Marin from San Francisco. With my background as an artist and a home renovator I can help buyers see the potential in property that others might miss. I offer sellers my energy, my enthusiasm, and my full attention in assuring that their property is well marketed. I work with a range of clients in all price ranges.
