Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $800K in San Anselmo, CA.
Blaine is a consummate pro. Extremely knowledgable, capable and affable. It was a pleasure working with him. My wife and I searched on and off for 2 years and he was patient through it all - always with our interests in mind and only showing us homes that were good fits.
I can't imagine that I could have found a better agent. From day one, until I (we) found my house and closed escrow, Blaine was all the above and more. There wasn't any question I asked that he didn't explain in detail; with patience and often fine humor. He
is a genuine, straight forward, honest, energetic, hardworking, diligent, positve guy who loves his work and it is a pleasure to spend time with him.

Times have certainly changed since my parents went out with Realtors looking at MLS print outs with one stamp-sized image of the home they were about to see. In our home search, we obviously used tools like Zillow to stay abreast of what was on the market, what neighborhood comps were, etc. All that said, there is no way we could have gotten through the process without our Realtor, Blaine. The "human" impact of Blaine's broad network of relationships, negotiation leadership, and experience/insight in every facet of the process proved invaluable to us. Ultimately, we purchased a house that was not initially on our radar because Blaine thought it was a great house for us to see. He literally held my hand through our (sometimes nail biting!) loan process and moment by moment drove it forward. Blaine knows every nook and cranny of Marin, is willing to do the research, and has contacts in every facet of home inspection, repair, maintenance. What a great partner in one of the biggest decisions/events/undertakings of your life. I recommend Blaine wholeheartedly!

Blaine was crucial in helping my family through an extremely tough time when we found ourselves facing a foreclosure on our family home. Blaine worked tirelessly with us to turn a disaster into an opportunity. He kept us on track the entire time and dealt with the details so we could deal with other issues. In the 11th hour (literally), Blaine saved our house from the auction block and actually put money in our pocket when the dust had settled. He also showed an incredible amount of sensitivity to our situation and gave us space when we needed it and knew exactly when to step in. I can't recommend him enough. If he could turn a dire situation like ours into a profitable one, imagine what he could do under even better circumstances!

Blaine helped my wife and I buy our first house in 2006 and he helped us again buy our next home this year. He did a fantastic job and helped us find exactly what we were looking for and worked diligently to make sure that he showed us a lot of options and different properties that could work for us. Blaine is easy to work with and never makes you feel pressured throughout the entire process. He also is super responsive!
Blaine is a consummate professional, quick to respond to all inquiries (and we had a lot!), easy to work with and, best of all, handles the heavy lifting required for real estate transactions.
Always quick with a smile and the plain truth, Blaine's an overall pleasure to work with; we've recommended him several times, all to great benefit to our friends and family who have chosen to work with him.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $1.15M in Fairfax, CA.
My husband and I have bought and sold many homes in Marin the past thirty years. Some homes which we lived in and some spec projects. We have worked with many agents. One agent stands out Blaine Morris. We just purchased a house that we intend on retiring in. This house needed to be very special. Blaine went out of his way to show us this special property before it was on the market. Which gave us an advantage. He was very patient with us during the negotiation process, which was longer than usual because we wanted a deal! We felt he always kept our interests first. In fact so much that two weeks before we closed he showed us yet another beautiful "dream home" and willing blow the whole deal just to make sure we were indeed buying our dream home. I would recommend Blaine on every level that is needed for a real estate agent.

We had experience with other agents over the past 20 years buying and selling homes. We had never had an agent like Blaine and his team! From the beginning, Blaine stood out above the rest. Being that we were multiple sellers in different areas of the state, we were going to need someone on top of things. After interviewing a few agents in the Marin area, we know Blaine was it!
Our rental home was in desperate need of some love before getting on market. Being that we were not local we needed reommendations on everything from what to repair and who to use. Blaine detailed suggestions from the minimal to the maximum. We also were on a budget and had to choose wisely where to invest. His knowledge of the area , market and contractors, was invaluable. The house looked amazing when we were done, he directed us perfectly on all the decisions to be made. He even met the contractors for us, watered the new sod, and even did some extra cleaning before open house!
In this market, I expected the house to sit for a while but we had offers the day after it went on MLS and ended up with multiple offers. Even when we were in escrow, he kept us updated daily either by phone, e-mail, or text. We were always in touch with how things were going. Escrow can be a tricky process and in the past I've experienced some delays in closing due to multiple issues. This escrow went so smoothly, I can't believe it, we even closed escrow a few days early!
I can not recommend Blaine and his team enough! If you need an agent, he will be professional like no other.
