Who We Are

About US

LVPMARIN REALTORS® was incorporated just 40 years ago. The mission is to provide the very highest quality of professional service to our clients. We wanted to remain small and individual—Expansion was not our objective. While our personnel has changed over the years, we are of one mind about maintaining quality, intensity, focus, and professional education as hallmarks of our work.

We have always operated on the basis that by providing the best for each client, we will always be rewarded with referral business and personal satisfaction by a job well done. Only the client knows that! Our 40 years have proven the validity of this philosophy.

As a result, we are good teachers - we help our clients to learn the reality of our markets so they can accomplish their objectives.

We will make your real estate experience a pleasure!

"We are privileged to serve our clients. We are profoundly grateful for 40 excellent years of client loyalty and growth. Some of our clients are now third generation!"

LVPMARIN REALTORS® was founded by CEO Catherine Munson in 1967. The company is locally owned and operated. Because we are a high level professional boutique real estate firm, we provide direct "hands on" attention to all our clients. We are able to provide custom, uninterrupted, personal service, decision-making, and responsiveness.

We know Marin County; we know the market, we know the neighborhoods, the school districts, the current issues, and the subtle nuances. We know market values; we know how to protect your interest. We will teach you about our market so you will be comfortable in making your decisions. Our market is never static. We are constantly attending seminars, symposia and networking meetings.

We work with clients of great wealth as well as modest clients seeking to buy their very first home. We have enjoyed dealing with great estates and small homes. We spend much time in client counseling so that we truly know our clients goals.

If you are selling your home we will provide "TOP SHELF MARKETING". The first showing is a critical moment for the best impression. Our listings show the very best the very first day on the market. An accurate market analysis and proper timing are integral parts of a good marketing campaign-
"Right Priced Property Sells."

If you are a buyer, we want to give you the edge. You will know what homes are available, if they are at the correct value; understand the pros and cons of the different neighborhoods, so you can make the correct decision. We are keenly aware that not all buyers have the same wishes, wants or needs.

At LVPMARIN REALTORS® we are full time professional Realtors. Extensive knowledge in the areas of 1031 exchanges, portfolio planning, real estate construction projects, sale, leasing and purchasing of residential and commercial real estate is available with a foundation of knowledge formed over many years. We are a member of the Network. Independent Brokers Network. It is proven year after year that this group of independent real estate brokerage companies sells more Marin real estate than any other national firm in the country.
