Hands down, Muriel is the best realtor in Marin! She searched and searched until she found me the home that was a perfect match for my family. She listened to my needs and worked tirelessly until she found a property that not only worked for us, but also was a good and affordable investment.

A Vintage Home Dream Realized…

Muriel Ballard of Marin Modern represented us in both the purchase of our new home and in the sale of our previous home, and she was outstanding in both capacities.

As a seller’s agent, she was ab...View More

“The first thing that came to our minds about you was your enthusiasm. As soon as you saw our house you loved it and had a vision on how to sell it. That energy didn’t skip a beat. You were highly professional, following procedures and negotiating for us. Consequently, you got us at least $150,000 more than any other agent quoted the house for. That says it all, other than we will recommend yo...View More

Muriel is business driven with “chutzpa” and very personable. My partner and I were looking for a very unusual property with a tight budget. Muriel found the property and was able to negotiate 15% less than the asking price. She was there every step of the way. The seller required a 21 day escrow and Muriel made it happen with very little stress. I highly recommend her....View More
