License #:

Since starting my real estate career in 2014, I have consistently ranked in the top 5-10% of agents in Marin County. I follow the market daily to keep up on trends and property values. I network with other top agents to learn about off-market property opportunities for my buyers. My previous professional career included 20+ years in banking, marketing and project management.  These skills have helped me become a top-notch negotiator and allowed me to prevail for my clients in both purchases and sales. I am a member of Top Agent Network and the Marin County Realtors Only Network.

My mantra is to listen more and talk less. I don’t have assistants so when you call you will get me on the phone. I personally oversee all the details of a purchase or a sale. I prefer to be very hands-on and I walk my clients through all the aspects of a real estate transaction in order to set realistic expectations. For me the most important values throughout a sale or purchase are transparency, honesty, and integrity. I live my life by these principles and they have served me well.

I am highly skilled at preparing homes for sale. This talent often results in my sellers receiving a premium price for their home. I have a team of painters, handymen, landscapers, estate sale consignors, etc. that are on-call. We work together closely to ensure a property looks its best before going on the market.

I am a Bay Area native having grown up in Orinda, graduated from UC Berkeley, and lived in San Francisco for 18 years. My commitment to service allows me to know and understand the communities where my clients live and where I work. I have served in leadership positions or volunteered at the Marin Art and Garden Center, the San Francisco Opera Guild, Marin Chapter of the National Charity League, Ross Valley Women’s League, the Lark Theatre, and St. Johns Church in Ross.

My husband Claude and I have lived in Kentfield for 23 years, where we raised and educated our twin daughters. We take pride in being active members of the Marin community.

My goal is to provide the highest level of service to my clients. I believe my enclosed testimonials will attest to this. I look forward to working with you.

"I have known Katie Jarman for many years and liked the way she was eager to help sell my house. I knew that it wouldn’t be easy because I had too much stuff. I wasn’t keen on getting rid of it just to stage the house. Katie worked with me over the months to get as many personal items into storage. She also arranged to have a variety of vendors come in to paint, clean carpets, garden, etc. She really went above and beyond what I might have expected any realtor to do. Katie even cleaned and polished the floors herself! In the end, the house sold for well above what I might have expected. I was very pleased with the results and can credit Katie with getting me a price well above what I would have gotten had she not be involved. I would be happy to talk to anyone who might be considering using Katie to sell their house. I can recommend her highly."

"Katie is one of the hardest-working people I know! She is well-organized and pays close attention to the smallest details. She is very professional and an excellent communicator. Katie helped me sell my home in a tricky market, and went way beyond the call of duty to make sure that the transaction was handled smoothly throughout the process. Katie is also an experienced home remodeler and has a wealth of information about resources for homeowners, ranging from gardeners, handymen, cleaning services, painters, furniture consignors, storage facilities, stagers... the list goes on. I would happily recommend Katie to anybody (in fact, I already have done so!"

  -Kimberly S. Blue, Seller and Buyer, Kentfield and , Client

"Katie is extremely talented in all aspects of the real estate process and highly dedicated to her clients. She worked tirelessly for us in selling our home and finding a new home for us. In the sale process she worked closely with the stagers and was creative in this process as well. She also found ways to accelerate the process whenever there were any delays. She just finds way to get it done. She was a true pleasure to work with from start to finish. "

  -Robert and Ruth Dell, Seller and Buyer, Kentfield , Client

"I could not have been more satisfied with the way Katie presented the manufactured home I just bought. She not only showed me how to work all the appliances but she labeled all the switches for me too. To top it off after returning the next day after we closed, I found a gift-wrapped basket of cleaning supplies of the kitchen counter. Wow! Thanks. Katie"
