Our agents

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.

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 Approach

My 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 Strategy

I 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.

 

Knowledge

I 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 note

I 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.

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 can think of nothing more rewarding than helping a client find the perfect home. I chose real estate because I love working with people and have extensive knowledge of the rapidly changing housing market in the Bay Area. I am a California licensed Realtor who has lived in Marin County for over 15 years with my wife and family. I have been a Bay Area resident for almost 3 decades since migrating from Chicago. I love photography, movies, wildlife spotting and I am an avid mountain biker and hiker. Enjoying the outdoor experiences that Marin County offers while living in a culturally rich area is the perfect balance.

 

My Approach

My desire and determination to best represent my clients is demonstrated by the high standards I set and maintain. I have a strong commitment to helping each client, whether selling or buying a home, so each client and each property receives the very best of service. I will be there from the very beginning and walk you throughout the escrow and inspection process. I will help you navigate the intricacies of the transaction and be by your side. I also will be there afterwards and provide you with information and support after you move into your new home. It is my hope that my experience and knowledge will serve you well.

 

My Client-First Philosophy

There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional – integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work. That said, in my experience as a real estate professional, I’ve also 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 your needs. This “client first” philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I’ve found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I’ve always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They’ve also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients. So when you decide that you’d like to buy or sell a home in the Marin County or Sonoma County, please contact me.

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.

Working with positive professionals was key in helping us get into our home.

I’ve been a Real Estate Agent for over 8 years enjoying a growing business in our competitive real estate market. I have just completed a 4 years term as a Director for the Marin REALTORS, the last two as their Treasurer. With my long history and knowledge of Marin, and personal relationships with industry professionals, I’ve created a team that can get your home ready for market and sold at top dollar – without compromising anyone’s integrity.

I also have a particular gift for working with seniors and empty nesters who are downsizing. I have guided clients as well as three sets of parents through this major life transition.
My background includes 30 years in the financial industry in San Francisco, including operating a family stock and options business at the former Pacific Stock Exchange, serving on self-regulatory exchange committees and boards, senior management for Newedge USA, and was elected and served 2 terms on the NYSE Exchange’s Board of Directors.

I tend a beautiful garden filled with roses and fruit trees and have extensive knowledge of the hiking and biking trails on and around our beloved Mount Tam. I enjoy community building projects which includes taking a group of students to Mexico to build homes every year for less fortunate Families. I make a mean margarita and often referred to as the “Commodore” for his amazing prowess with my Weber BBQ.

I am proud to call Marin County my home and I welcome the opportunity to work with you. “Why would you want to live anywhere else?”- GN

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.
