  • Chris, a native of Northern California, has a keen understanding of the unique property values specific to this area. Chris' dream has been to lead a real estate firm that is designed to help achieve success through detailed knowledge and experience in the multiple facets of home ownership and sales. The Bay Area is a unique and challenging area to value property, and families trust his expertise in the decision-making process.
  • Chris graduated from Arizona State University and became a trader. After spending a decade as a Market Maker on the Pacific Exchange trading equity options, Chris decided to start a family-run real estate business to be near home in Fairfax and his two young children. Chris also has a background in construction and renovating properties, and feels Marin has the need for a real estate company that provides more than just traditional broker services. "My trading background has been a real help in analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of individual properties. It's given me the discipline to make smart, quick, yet informed, decisions." Considering the real value of a renovation or a potential money-saving enhancement to a property allows Chris' clients to economize where others haven't considered, allowing for net wealth savings.
  • The Cal Marin Group or what has turned into CMG Realty REO was created with the vision to helps throughout the entire real estate process, not just the buying and/or selling side of the business.

"Nothing makes us happier at CMG than to give back to the community through the Fire Department. It is very rewarding to help someone and we are honored to be part of such a great organiztion."

      Showed home in 2011 in Adams Point, Piedmont, CA 94610.
      He does a great job, nice to work with, and has had excellent results for us. More specifically he helped us in finding a home on the Belvedere Lagoon. He helped with setting up our unit, staging, and doing some remodeling. He arranged for help with the move in process.

      He is a very competent broker and I recommend his services. His wife Nicole was extremely helpful with staging which saved us a whole lot of problems.

      Great team to deal with!

      Bought a home in 2006.
      Outstanding experience working with Chris. Very creative, optimistic, bright and hard working. He delivers the results. He also donated the use of his trailer for the move. I would work with Chris again anytime.

      Sold a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $700K in Fairfax, CA.
      From the moment I met Chris MacDonald, I KNEW he was the BEST real estate agent for me. Even though I have 2 close friends and 2 neighbors in the business, I chose Chris. His broad based knowledge, experience and proven track record speak volumes for him. But in addition, which is what really sold me on Chris is his sensitivity to people. He is open and honest and honors your input. He is a reflective listener, hearing what you have to say and what you feel and most importantly what you want out of your business transaction with him. (whether it's buying a home or selling yours). He includes you in all decision making on the level that YOU want to be involved. He thinks outside the box AND works that way. If it's a top notch, friendly, results person you want for your real estate transaction, HIRE Chris MacDonald. He sold my home in 2 DAYS! I was more than happy with the price I got. And it was in a declining market.. I have kept in touch with him after the sale and count him as one of the Rare people you can Trust in the business world. Everyone I have recommended Chris MacDonald to have thanked me and have in turn recommended him to others.  MoreLess
