I don't think that is possible. I believe that the supervising broker is the only one who gets commission. Hopefully this clears things up for you. Good luck James! ... more

It was suggested to me once that if you are on the east side of the road you may get more pollution as the winds come from the ocean and move eastward.

Hi Craig;
I say if you are happy with your location you should either try to make it work or look for alternatives in your neighborhood. since you have tweens and teens they will appreciate the continuity. A lot depends on what you can afford and which solution is best in terms of costs, time and personal disruptions. I know excellent contractors/architects who could give you an idea of what can be done with your current home and I can also send you listings if I knew your general criteria. You might want to keep in mind that even if you trade up it may not have to be a much larger home due to the fact that your children will leave home (if all goes well) in the next 2-8 years and you may not need too much space. It really should come down to what causes the least amount of stress for all of you and what can be done, i.e., will your town allow an expansion. I'd be happy to help you figure some of this out. 415-640-1850. ... more

I follow trends closely in this neighborhood ( I live here, too!). As of this writing, 68 homes have sold year to date with a median price of $717,000 in San Anselmo. According to the Dept of Agriculture, the median household income in California in 2011 was $57,664. In Marin, it was $82,383. About 50% higher than the state median. San Anselmo Median income in 2011 was $110,592 which is even higher. So, I would say, yes, it is an upper middle class neighborhood. ... more

Terri Vellios answered:
Do you mean on Trulia? Call Trulia. You will want to make sure that when you entered the listing on the MLS that you checked the box authorizing it to be syndicated on line. I believe you can also manually list it on Trulia.

Explain to your client that there are areas of the internet which the individual honestly has no control over it. If it is listed correctly on the MLS, and syndicated to you are giving it the exposure you have control over. You may also have to call the other listing agent and ask them to remove their old listing from Trulia.

All the best to you.

Hi Anna:

Maybe this answer is too late; but hopefully you have already started the Loan Modification process or at least, talked to a professional about your options, whether it is the folks at HOPE like Tistan mentioned, a Realtor who is well versed of and can talk you through the different options, or your tax attorney or tax accountant who is up to the current real estate trend and treatment, etc.

Personally, I would recommend checking into Loan Modification with your lenders first and see what they can/will do. I have heard of quite a few successful loan modifications recently, which is encouraging! If that does not work, Short Sale is usually your next step. Foreclosure or Deed-In-Lieu are next. But this all depends on your specific situation and should be evaluated carefully.

Please feel free to contact me (415) 717-0293 if you still have questions. Although I am very successful in short sales, my preference is to help my clients keep their home (why we buy home in the first palce). I am very good at consulting my clients and will be happy to chat with you.

In California landlords are CURRENTLY not required. However, it would all depend on what your written agreement with them is.
