824 Arlene Way, Novato * Just Sold to a first time VA homebuyer

Welcome Home to 824 Arlene Way!


I'm thrilled to have helped another client, friend and vetran purchase his first home!  824 Arlene Way in Novato will offer him beautiful views and a pool and the lifestyle he was looking for. We started our search while he was working in Europe and by the time he arrived in Marin for his new job we had a list of properties to tour. After looking at less than 10 properties that qualified for VA loans we found 'the one' and were in contract to close in 30 days with a closing credit to cover his closing costs. After completing inspections and removing contingencies the excitement began to set in with the realization that this open, light filled house nestled in the oak trees would soon be the first place he can call home.  Working closely with my clients lender we were able to use his eligibilty as a Vetran for a VA loan with no money down and some cash back in his pocket.  

Open Concept

I appreciate the kind words from my client on Yelp: "Phoebes is the best realtor you can get.  She knows the business and is always looking out for your best interest.  That cannot be said for every realtor you come across.  Once you find that place you love she will not stop until she gets you what you want.  And once you get your offer approved she will work tirelessly to help you sort through the bureaucracy of home buying.  Phoebes is The Best!"

I love helping my clients to make their real estate dreams...

Neighborhood Highlights with Phoebe Reyes: Taco Jane’s, San Anselmo

My Neighborhood Highlights are a series of videos that showcase some of the things
that make where I live in Marin County one of the best places on earth. I love to share
and I want to share with you what makes my neighborhood and life in the Bay Area
I met with Matteo, owner of Taco Jane’s, at his restaurant in downtown San Anselmo
to talk about his restaurant and fabulous cocktail menu. Taco Jane’s first opened in
1998 and has been one of my favorite restaurants in central Marin ever since! It takes a
certain level of greatness for a restaurant to stay in business for over 18 years and with
his big heart, support of other local businesses and determined work ethic this owner
deserves to be successful. Matteo named his restaurant after his mom, and his love of
travel works it’s way into the decor, music, drinks and food of Taco Jane’s. Taco
Jane’s features Mexican food from the southern states with inspiration from Oaxaca
and the Yucatan with a tropical twist. The first step is admitting you have an addiction,
