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.
"Katie helped me purchase my first home. She was an absolute joy to work with and made me feel comfortable and confident at each stage of the process. She worked tirelessly to ensure the entire transaction went smoothly. I would definitely recommend working with Katie!"
-Selby Walker, Buyer, Mill Valley, Client
"My wife and I had the pleasure of having Katie represent us on the sale of our home. We know many brokers but decided to go with Katie because of her experience, professionalism and vast network. First, she sat down with us and clearly walked us through the process of selling a home and set the proper expectations. She then took on the management and oversight of all the improvement work. Katie was available around the clock to meet workers so my wife and I did not have to adjust our schedules. Her communication was excellent; very concise and there were never any surprises. When we began showing our home to prospective buyers, Katie always gave us timely and thorough feedback. She managed our expectations very well which helped ease the stress of selling a home. We received multiple offers on our home and Katie helped us navigate what could have been a tricky situation. As expected when working with Katie, everything was done orderly and ethically so all parties felt comfortable."
-Charles and Stephanie Mellor, Sellers, Ross, Client
"Katie is wonderful. So resourceful and unflappable, she'll be with you every step of the way. From the moment we first decided to list our house - in the stressful age of Covid - to close and the final process (including dropping our Xfinity equipment at UPS!), Katie makes herself fully available for her clients; it is clear Katie treats them the way she would like to be treated!"
-Lori and Charles Akers, Sellers, Novato, Client
"Katie Jarman is professional and personable. She listened to what I was looking for and showed me some great properties. I found a home in Ross very quickly! She was a great help during the entire process!"
