Tam Valley

We’ve seen a dramatic change in the Southern Marin real estate market.  It seems as if we have a real shortage of nice homes for sale.  Homes are selling quickly, some with multiple offers, and some for more than their original asking price.
We’ve been hearing bad news about the economy and the real estate market for the past several years, so what’s happening here?  In Tam Valley, there are currently more than a dozen homes that are in contract, meaning the seller has accepted the...

Megan and Lee Mokri bought their first home in Mill Valley.  So why is this news? They love living there.  And, they appreciate the service they got from Stacey and Jane.  Check out this video:
 

Last year, we helped Megan and Lee Mokri buy a home in the Tam Valley neighborhood of Mill Valley.  Here is what they have to say about the experience of working with Jane Mermelstein Click here to view video

Creekside Fridays is a really fun event, and Stacey and I are pleased to sponsor two weeks of this event this year: Friday June 24th and Friday July 29th from 6:30 to 8 PM at the Tam Valley Log Cabin at 60 Tennessee Valley Road.  It's a great event and a terrific way to start the weekend--and for those coming from the city, it is likely a great way to escape the cold and fog.  Bring a blanket to sit on, a picnic and a bottle of wine, or feel free to purchase BBQ dinner there (it varies...
