Southern Marin

Sausalito - Reminiscent of a small Mediterranean village, hillside homes and incredible waterfront views help define real estate in Sausalito.

Belvedere - Surrounded by water on three sides, many consider Belvedere to be one of the more exclusive communities in all of Marin County, if not in the entire state of California.

Tiburon - Known most for its awesome views of the San Francisco skyline, living in Tiburon has that “wow” factor that many Marin County home buyers seek during a home search.

Mill Valley - Unlike other South Marin communities along the bayfront, Mill Valley has more of a forested setting, filled with huge redwoods and plenty of peace and quiet

Central Marin

Corte Madera - Perhaps the most centrally located town in Marin County, living in Corte Madera is as convenient as it its attractive.

Greenbrae - Once the land of a sprawling old dairy ranch, Greenbrae has a district country feel to it that’s now considered one of the more serene cities in all of Marin County.

San Rafael - San Rafael is Marin County’s largest city, so if you’re looking for a vibrant downtown with lots of things to see and do, living here is definitely for you.

Larkspur - Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, charming is the only way to characterize the Larkspur community, consequently making it a top choice for Marin County home buyers.

Kentfield - Positioned at the base of Mt. Tamalpais, Kentfield is known for having some of the best outdoor recreational opportunities in the area, which is certainly an enticing element to many area home buyers.

Ross - Ross is where you’ll find many of Marin County’s most historic homes, which are mostly all quite large and carry a pretty heft price tag. You’ve been warned.

Fairfax - Downtown Fairfax truly has the look and feel of a story book small town, and because it’s only 30 minutes from San Francisco, it’s also a convenient place to live as well!

San Anselmo - Sunset Magazine once voted San Anselmo as the “Best in the West” for antiquing, so as you can imagine, its downtown is full of quaint little shops, cafes, and restaurants that go a long way in making this a top choice to one day call home.

North Marin

Novato - Perhaps the fastest growing city in Marin County, Novato is also one of its biggest, with a total population of 50,000 and expanding rapidly!

Petaluma - While Petaluma generally sits in Sonoma County, there is a small area of Petaluma that can be found in Marin County.

West Marin

Woodacre - Somewhat quiet and remote, living in Woodacre is all about the peaceful natural surroundings and not much else—which is what most home owners love about it most.

San Geronimo - San Geronimo has a rather scenic setting that’s full of rolling hills and open meadows, which in many ways defines the entire northern California landscape.

Nicasio - Nicosia provides potential home buyers with luxury countryside living at its finest. The atmosphere is peaceful and quiet, while most homes here scream luxury.

Forest Knolls - Often grouped together with nearby Lagunitas, Forest Knolls is just up the street from its western neighbor, but equally as sleepy, which is how most of its residents prefer it.

Lagunitas - A tiny village that feels worlds away from just about anything else, living in Lagunitas is actually quite desirable and still connected to San Rafael via the Marin Transit system even despite its remote location.

Inverness - Acting as the last town before you enter the Point Reyes National Seashore, Inverness is in some ways a gateway into one of northern California’s most spectacular natural green areas.

Point Reyes Station - When walking through downtown Point Reyes Station, it almost feels like you’ve taken a trip back in time. And although it’s bustling with restaurants, cafes, and various shops and service businesses in old buildings, the homes here won’t leave you disappointed.

Marshall - An unincorporated community in Marin County, Marshall is home to only around 400 people, making it one of the area’s smallest towns.

Tomales - The eclectic architecture is probably the most notable aspect of Tomales, as the Vernacular homes, charming Queen Anne cottages, and Italianate commercial buildings downtown make for quite a unique setting.

Bolinas - A thriving seaside community that acts as the oldest town in coastal Marin County, Bolinas, although hard to get to, is a hidden gem that has a community bond unlike anything else in northern California.

Stinson Beach - A popular tourist destination because of its amazing bayfront, there’s actually much more to this small coastal town than just a beautiful beach. The hillside homes here are equally spectacular and its small downtown is quaint and really quite lovely.

Dillon Beach - A small seaside community located just just 3.25 miles from Tomales, Dillon Beach has a more relaxed and low-key atmosphere compared to other beach communities in Marin.   While the town has its fair share of year-long residents, it's also a popular location for Bay Area residents interested in a beachfront second home or cottage.

Muir Beach - An natural enclave that feels more like paradise than where you call home, Muir Beach is surrounded on three sides by the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, and the Pacific Ocean on the other.
