Narodny Team Frequently Asked Realtor Questions

Below we have attempted to answer some of the most commonly asked questions about us, our experience and Marin County real estate in general. We have separated out common Marin homebuyer FAQ and Marin seller FAQ into two separate sections of our site under the buyer and seller sections of our website.

Is right now a good time to buy a home in Marin County?

The interest rates are hovering under 5%. There is a lot of inventory to sell which makes sellers anxious and flexible. The sellers will negotiate on price and terms and also inspections. It is definitely a buyer’s market with only 25 - 28% of homes selling in any market in Marin. At the high end, over 2 million, only 12-15% of homes are selling. However, statistics are showing that more homes are beginning to sell so the tide may be changing.

Many agents claim to be “Top Agents” how can I be sure that the Narodny Team is one of the best?

The single biggest misunderstanding about that term comes from what determines the status. If you work in a small company with few agents Top Agent could be a designation given to an agent who sold three homes in a year based on the relative productivity of the firm or office. Statistics are skewed. The Narodny team are top agents at the #1 company in Marin and Sonoma and we are in the #1 office for all real estate companies in Marin. When we say we do well we have to do well to be in this category since our competition for “top” is fierce. This translates into a strong environment to work in with effective agents networking, marketing and sharing their inventory and future listings with each other which means accurate and new home opportunities for buyers.

If The Narodny Team is so successful, how will I know that they have time to attend to my needs?

The Narodny Team has taken multiple steps to insure that every one of our buyer’s and seller’s needs are attended to. We are a highly experienced team of three with an established structure of support for our clients. From the attention to detail to the communication with clients, the team is able to offer far more service than a single agent.

How long has the Narodny Team been selling real estate in Marin County?

Karin has been selling real estate since 1974 and Peter has been selling real estate since 1985. Combined they have over 60 years experience.

Is every Marin County listing searchable on www.marinrealestate.net?

Yes, every listing that is on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is available for viewing. In addition, we have access to the majority of homes that are not officially on the market This is exclusive list that is not posted on the website but available to our clients. Please contact us for a customized, robust “off-MLS” listing search.

Do you have an area or region of primary focus?

The Narodny Team intentionally chose to work in the centrally located Greenbrae “Top Producer” office because it allows them to market properties and assist buyers from all over Marin.  The team is consistently working on transactions from Sausalito to Stinson Beach to Novato and they have found that their marketing strategies are efficient in all of these areas.  In addition, the Greenbrae office, Frank Howard Allen has several offices across Marin County giving the team many different “access points”.

How many transactions do you complete annually?

Over the past 10 years we have averaged 40 transactions per year.
