$6,000 - there is 147 Crown Road has the best views in Kent Woodlands on Mt. Tam, hiking/cycling trails across the street in quiet neighborhood. That is for rent for $7,600. Nice Home.

In Kentfield a basic home in the flats is $5,000 3/2 2700 sqre feet. If you would like me to search for you, I can. Else Craigslist and the major property management companies are a good source. Right now, nothing really on MLS. I would need to make some phone calls. Cheers, Kathleen

Make sure the house you are purchasing is not only close to the school you want yourchild to go to, but is in that schools zone. I live a few blocks away from a really great rated school but my kids bus to a good rated school across town zoning, go figure. ... more

Dear Marinlover,
I live and work in Ross, and am raising my children here. I've lived here for 11 years -- since my oldest was a year old. I also have many friends and clients in Mill Valley and Tiburon with small children. All the communities have benefits, and you can find a diverse range of people in each town. I would hesitate to "label" the people in each town. Rather, I think each community has its unique characteristics. For example, Ross is a small town with a tight-knit community -- people tend to know each other. The school is central to the community, as are community events such as the 4th of July, town potluck dinners, etc. Weekends on the common feature soccer, lacrosse, and Little League games. Pixie Park is wonderful for families with very young children. Mill Valley has a thriving downtown with many restaurants and shops, and a larger school district with several grade schools feeding into a larger middle school. It has many wonderful parks where young families gather for play and Little League. Tiburon's schools are divided into three campuses by age. Tiburon's real estate value derives from its views and proximity to the water. The recreation department and Blackie's Pasture provide many recreational opportunities for young families, as does the Tiburon Penninsula Club.
I would be happy to discuss any of these communities with you. Feel free to give me a call at 415.806.3176.
Warm regards,
Stephanie Lamarre
