Ratings & Reviews

For many years my wife and I had a dream of owning our own home. At times our dream seamed unattainable. Although prices had come down, most homes in Marin were still out of our price range. The ones that we could afford were snapped up by investors with cash offers. Like many first time home buyers we were discouraged. We doubted if we would ever find a home. Lisa Byram changed everything for us. She helped us navigate the complexities of the real estate market. She was a pleasure to work with. Her wealth of experience, tireless dedication and consummate professionalism were fabulous. We now own our first home and have Lisa to thank for it. We have a large debt that we owe the bank, but to Lisa we owe a debt of gratitude that we will never be able to repay. Thank you again.

You saw all the great potential in the house and have already done some lovely things to make it your own. So glad you decided on Novato to raise your family.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $675K in Novato, CA.

I had the responsibility of selling my parents home and chose Lisa to assist us. Lisa brought her wisdom and expertise in this task and gave me peace of mind. Her knowledge of the local market was exceptional. Despite the fact that there were time constraints, Lisa helped in all aspects of preparing the home for resale and getting it on the market quickly. My family could not have done it without her. And my parents would have loved her!

Bought a home in 2011 in McNear, Petaluma, CA 94954.

We weren't quite sure what we were looking for when we started the search for our first home. We found Lisa to be very patient - she introduced us to some great areas within Marin and Sonoma County. We found her to be very responsive, and she utilized different forms of communication including phone and email. For example, after a weekly seller meeting she'd send us an email outlining what new stuff she'd learned about and what she thought we may be interested in. She was also willing to take us through a tour of homes for sale from bottom to top of our price range, which allowed us to see what our options were on the market. Everything she did gave us the information we needed to find our first home. And even after finding it, she remained a significant part of the process for us. She was an excellent source of support for us making decisions during the purchase of our home, and her enthusiasm made it a fun experience. We would, without any reservation, recommend her to future home buyers and will certainly be giving her a call should the time come that we move again.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Jeff and Danielle- I'm glad you found a new construction house and were able to personalize it. I'd be happy to work with you again whenever the opportunity presents itself.

Bought a home in 2010 in Bel Marin Keys, Novato, CA 94949.

Lisa was great to work with! She was very consciences of our family's (especially kids') needs and was very flexible and patient with us. She's very knowledgable, knows the area very well and keeps up to date on the market trends. Since buying our place, we've referred her to several friends already and will continue to do so.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $750K in Novato, CA.

Two of Lisa’s best qualities, among many, are listening and communicating to her clients. She listens as to what they want and tries to fit it into their budget. She always, always answers your phone calls and emails in a timely fashion. She is patient, very patient, and very encouraging that “we’ll find the right house”. She is a true professional…punctual, organized and dressed impeccably with the warmest smile. Being from out-of-town, Lisa always managed to rearrange her schedule to accommodate us even on short notice. We often heard from her when a house was going to be listed in the next week or two. In fact, she made it possible for us to purchase our home before it went on the MLS. Lisa really cares about her clients. If you are in need of a great realtor, Lisa is truly a rare find.

Dear Holly and Mark, You helped me so much by knowing exactly what you wanted. It was just a matter of time to find the right place for you. You have transformed the house we found into a place I would dream of living in one day. I'm so happy you found just the right place for you.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in San Rafael, CA.

Dealing with Lisa is very different from dealing with other realtors. We quickly realized that she was not simply working to find us a house. She asked us very good questions about what we were looking for in terms of what type of neighborhoods, their atmosphere, what types of services we wanted close by, etc. She then combined our desires with her own knowledge of the general Marin area and was able to recommend a number of neighborhoods that might suit our needs. I was very impressed with Lisa's knowledge of Marin. Once we decided to put in an offer on a home, she worked very hard to keep things moving forward. There were the usual offers, counter offers, and so forth. Through this process Lisa not only kept us informed about what was happening, she was able to give us a lot of good advice about the process. It was very clear that she has a depth of understanding of the real estate business. That was where Lisa came through as an ally, and I can't tell you how good that felt. Once our offer had been accepted, we moved on to the inspections, etc. There, I got the impression that Lisa has a very extensive business network. It was clear she knew the inspectors and had worked with them before. This made the inspections more informative in my opinion. At one point, I don't know how, but when the inspector mentioned some problem with the street sewer system, Lisa got on the phone and had a city sewer truck there in 15 minutes! She wields a phone the way Picasso wielded his paintbrush! We are most impressed with Lisa and very grateful for everything she's done for us.

Michael and Dawn, thank you for the positive feedback. Glad to see you have settled in... all that is needed now is finding the right dog to add to your family now that you have a yard.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Santa Rosa, CA.

My wife and I were first-time homebuyers and got referred to Lisa by a co-worker. She was amazing throughout the entire process, from educating us about the home buying procedures to recommending several mortgage brokers. She always left the final decision in our hands but held them step-by-step, answering every question we had promptly and professionally. I cannot say enough about Lisa; she is very easy-going and her thoroughness makes the whole process go much more smoothly.

I appreciate your comments and can assure you the feeling is mutual. Getting to know you and Nagi has been a blessing in my life. Knowing you are happy in your new home is frosting on the cake.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.2M in Novato, CA.

Lisa Byram found the perfect house for us. Always available, yet never pushy - Lisa listened and learned our specific priorities. She then took it upon herself to seek out relevant opportunities and presented multiple options - many exclusively to us. As a result of her efforts, we purchased our house off-market and felt secure in our representation throughout the process. Lisa has an ear to the ground, an eye for the details, a backbone for the deal and a smile on her face. We could not recommend her highly enough.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $450K in Novato, CA.

A note of thanks for your help...What was most important was having you at the courthouse ready to throw our bid into the bidding pool. That was a very crucial moment and to have only a $1000 over the next bid was fantastic. I can't believe there were 8 bids!

Your help with watching our place during the rainstorms was very, very helpful, especially since we weren't nearby. Plus, your dealing with the seller's agent was skillful and helpful. Of course, we love the place.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

That was an exciting transaction. I drive by your home all the time and always feel like it is a place I would like to live, too.
