Our agents do not compete for business. Instead, they support one another to ensure that you always receive the attention you need. Real Estate Agents are independent contractors, but that’s where we differ from the larger brokerages. Our Agents respect one another’s businesses and want each client to be successful. Your success is paramount to ours.
As the owner and broker of Holmes Burrell Real Estate I am inspired and excited to offer the services of a new type of real estate brokerage. My primary objective is to create life-long relationships with my clients while helping navigate the complexities of today’s real estate market. This model could only be born from having a strong traditional real estate expertise that I gained through 17 years of being a top producer in the bay area and turbocharging the client experience by offering next level cutting edge technology. Many of the technologies I have in place are proprietary and unparalleled. I am truly enthusiastic about offering superior client services, services you deserve and the service you should come to expect. I look forward to serving you through your real estate transaction…Every Step of the Way - HOME!
I have been selling and listing real estate for over a decade in the North Bay, and I’m proud to consistently fall in the top 1% of all Marin Agents. I own and operate Holmes-Burrell Real Estate, a business I’ve grown to leverage smart technology in a way that no other agency can claim. And over the years I’ve developed an enormous network by doing solid, honest work with great people. With my company’s unique strategy to make the most of both technology and relationships, I’ve helped hundreds of clients find and sell their homes. I simply love real estate and it shows in the work I do and the dedication I display day in and day out – seven days a week.
My ApproachMy approach is simple: At all times I operate with the utmost integrity and professionalism, remembering that my practice is client-centered and client-driven. In my experience as a real estate professional, I've always found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to my clients’ needs. In short, I take care of my clients like they are family members. Since I am consistently in the top tier of all sales agents in Marin and Sonoma, I don't need any one deal. What I do need are happy clients who love their homes. I strive to help clients find their perfect home, and I make sure that they are completely informed before they make any decision.
Sales StrategyI provide my clients with best-in-industry service, thorough market knowledge, innovative marketing techniques, and solid sales strategy to promote all of my listed properties. My team comprises not only talented, licensed agents, but also seasoned internet, database marketing, advertising, graphic design, marketing, photography and public relations professionals – all of whom work together to ensure every property I represent garners the attention and sale price it deserves.
KnowledgeI offer the highest level of residential real estate savvy, extensive experience and intensive knowledge about North Bay neighborhoods, schools and trails. My years of experience have given me a complete understanding of the real estate process and strong contract negotiation skills. I have a vast network of vendors, including contractors, tile guys, electricians, movers, etc. When you need something in the world of real estate...I am the one to call.
On a personal noteI live in the North Bay with my wife and three daughters. I’m very active in the community and in my kids’ lives, coaching boys’ and girls’ club tee-ball and local youth soccer, volunteering in the classroom at my daughters’ elementary school, and heading up the board at my youngest daughter's nonprofit preschool. I’m also an avid cyclist – which is why I know every trail in Marin County – and I love tennis. In fact, my wife and I captain the mixed doubles team at our local tennis club. While I love sports, playing with my girls is my favorite activity – they are my pride and joy.

Born and raised in France, I obtained a law degree before traveling internationally. Arriving in the US in 2000, I worked as an environmental and green building advocate with the Natural Resources Defense Council. I moved to San Francisco in 2008 before babies came and I switched gears, becoming a stay-at-home parent, a yogini, an author. I moved to Marin County in 2018 and never want to leave.
I am passionate about real-estate because houses are essential to our quality of life and wealth stability...and they are fun! With the expert help of husband-and-wife team Jason and Jennifer Holmes, my family was able to buy a home. I decided I wanted to do that for other families, and here I am, part of the team!
Moving forward in my career working with Holmes Burrell Real Estate, I am excited to continue sharing my passion for helping others. I am driven to share my passion by using my prior philanthropic experiences, a background in construction, and my love for the area I have found to live and raise my family. A native of Minnesota, I had the good fortune to be raised by parents who encouraged travel, music, art, sports, leadership, the importance of education, and giving back to the community. Spending my early years in Germany and exploring Europe formed a life-long love of the outdoors and a natural curiosity of the larger world, history, and culture. This led to working as a mentor and as a volunteer for an NGO program in Thailand, as well as teaching ESL to adults in Minnesota. Community involvement by helping and knowing others is second nature to me. Carpentry and construction have always been a passion from a young age, and I have honed those skills by working for high-end builders in Truckee, as well as working in property management and appraisal management. While the extensive outdoor opportunities of Truckee were enriching, I chose to move to even more appealing Marin County still having easy access to the mountains which I came to love. Marin also allows me to enjoy the unique lifestyle combination of incredible open space, the proximity to culturally diverse San Francisco, fantastic schools, and superb community. A proud father of two young boys, Marin is where I have chosen to settle and raise my young family. I have remodeled two of my own homes here, and have the perspective and knowledge to expertly guide buyers and sellers in the right direction, especially when it comes to questions about property condition or potential changes to a home. Furthermore, my real estate background enhances my ability to advise clients on homes as a significant financial investment. By helping people from start to finish buying and selling homes in the Bay Area I get to do something I truly love.

I am a Marin County native with an understanding of why this is the BEST place to live. Born and raised in the heart of Paradise, the Bay Area provides the variety anyone needs to make a home. I was born in Larkspur but it didn't stop there. Before I reached a year a faulty wire and a fire brought me to the west side of Marin. I moved around a lot in search of the perfect situation. I have lived in every town in Marin County, several areas in San Francisco, East Bay, Sonoma County and I have a unique perspective on all this area has to offer. I am in West Marin with my beautiful wife and our four daughters. I appreciate the importance of family and the strength of community and I love helping people find their perfect situation. My familiarity with the area and my family's background in construction and design helps me bring a comfortable and confident approach to the uncertain world of buying or selling a home. Let me be a part of one of the most important decisions of your life. I care and I will be 100% about you!
I got into real estate on the ground floor—literally. With numerous years of hands-on experience working with master builders, I learned every aspect of home construction and development. I know how to select the best finishes, where to invest or make improvements—and where not to. I know homes. Inside and out. And that’s to your advantage. Whether you want to ready your house for market, inspect a home prior to purchase, or make improvements once you’ve bought your home, I can make it happen—fast. I work closely with a talented team of professionals including two builder/contractors, a plumber, electrician, roofer, home inspector, structural pest inspector, structural engineer, architect, draftsman, interior designer, insurance agent, and a landscape architect. In addition to my extensive background in construction, I also bring a keen aesthetic sense to the table. Thanks in part to an early career as a classically trained tenor. Passion, determination, and dedication is what I brought to the expression of my voice. It’s what helps make me a sharp negotiator, a keen listener, a trusted friend.

I grew up living in five different cities across three countries before arriving in Marin county in 7th grade. I attended Cal before graduating from the University of Oregon School of Law. I was an Associate Dean at Stanford Law School before starting a career in Silicon Valley as a founder of seven different startups. I have lived in the East Bay, San Francisco and Marin so I have a good understanding of the nuances of each area. You might be wondering why I have a Zillow profile. My wife and I have purchased and lived in seven different homes and we have invested in over 40 doors out of state. Our friends kept coming to us for advice when they bought homes around the Bay Area. We would help think through different neighborhoods, renovation ideas, pricing, contingencies, lenders, and even remodeling after the close. Our friends kept saying you should help others! Buying or selling a home can be a stressful and complex endeavor. Whether it is your first or 10th time, each transaction is unique. My goal is to serve you by leveraging my many years of building businesses, legal training, personal experience purchasing and selling property, and sincere desire to share my knowledge and skills with you. I am not striving to be the #1 realtor in Marin based on the total dollar value of properties I help buy and sell in a year. I measure my success based on my clients having a great experience and the value add I bring to the process. I would rather have fewer transactions so I can focus on each client as if they are my only client. I want to create lifelong relationships while building a community of friends/clients.
