Explore homes for sale in Marin County
In Marin, families live in harmony with nature, luxury is a given, and retirement is a joy. Tucked away amid hushed forests, uncrowded coasts, and perennially green hills and valleys are a diversity of communities offering an equally varied selection of neighborhoods and homes.
Choose from rambling hilltop estates in San Anselmo and San Rafael to charming garden cottages in Fairfax, and everything in between. Live in a luxurious waterfront home in a well-established neighborhood in Novato, in a grand old Victorian in Larkspur, or in your own woodland retreat in the shadow of the world’s tallest trees.
Discover Sonoma County’s real estate options
Laidback, bucolic Sonoma is known for its over 400 wineries, but this vast county is also home to dairy farms and ranches, gorgeous coastal areas, and communities ranging from populous cities like Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park to small, unincorporated communities.
Real estate options here are as wide-ranging as the region’s vistas. There’s everything from sprawling vineyards, horse farms, and ranches to authentic Craftsman bungalows in tree-shaded neighborhoods to comfortable homes in 55+ communities.
Find homes and land in Napa
The Napa Valley has become synonymous with award-winning wine, Michelin-starred restaurants, and the ultimate in wine country luxury.
Napa County’s wealth of real estate options range from vineyard estates and land to updated country homes to well-preserved turn-of¬the-century cottages and bungalows.
