The Sterley Group

    • Jeff Sterley, our real estate agent, found an "off market" house in Larkspur for us 3 years ago. We recently strategized with Jeff on the resale of that same house. This strategy included repairs and "touch up" work on the house that would bring the most return and curb appeal from Jeff's perspective. Jeff also has a group of select contractors that executed this work with high quality, speed at a reasonable cost. With counsel for staging, strategic pricing and excellent networking and marketing, we had multiple offers and the price was bid up $305,000.Simultaneously, we purchased another house in Larkspur at the same time. Jeff was able to negotiate $60,000 less than the asking price for that home. Jeff's sincerity to be an advocate and expertise with many years in the real estate business has repeatedly made him a smart choice for us. I look forward to partnering with Jeff and the Sterley team again on my next real estate transaction.

    • Simply put, we cant think of anyone better suited as our partner and as we purchased our dream home in Marin. Jeffs thorough, competent and reasoned approach ensured that our offer and transaction went through smoothly. More importantly, we knew Jeff had our best interests at heart and was invested in our dream. His warmth and patience made a stressful moment enjoyable!

    • We recently (yesterday) closed escrow on the sale of a house we'd occupied for 30 years in San Anselmo. The house was in need of substantial renovations in order to maximize the return on our investment and Jeff, the consummate professional walked us through the necessary steps; coordinated the recommended remodeling with the stager and contractors that he suggested, and engendered the confidence necessary to allow us to leave for our home in New Mexico two months before the house was ready to put on the market. He communicated as frequently as necessary to keep us in the loop as the repairs were underway, and kept us informed of any necessary alteration in plans. The house was ready in near record time, went on the market on the scheduled day, and sold that day for I price I had not even considered within range. The money invested at his suggestion came back to us more than two fold, and the process was painless and without worry. I cannot really imagine having gone through this with anyone else navigating at the helm and recommend him without hesitation.

    • We were first time home buyers looking to purchase a home in Marin and had some vague ideas about what we wanted. Jeff quickly understood us, our aspirations, taste, and guided us through the various towns and communities in Marin County. Through both online and driving tour presentations, Jeff found us the PERFECT home in Sausalito. Even after closing, Jeff continued to help with contractor referrals, advice, and support. He stopped by regularly (and still does years later) to see how things were going. Jeff is a genuinely great person who happens to help people buy/sell homes. He is a true professional, curious, authentic, well spoken, extremely knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. My family and I can't thank Jeff and his team enough for all the help they provided in our home purchase. Highly recommended!!!

    • Jeff Sterley and Team are the BEST in Marin! My husband and I just sold our home of 21 years in record time- Jeff and his team helped us get our house ready to market with support, reassurance and encouragement. We got to experience Jeffs trustworthiness and sincerity first hand-he followed through on every promise he made and more. His marketing and media prowess cannot be beat. Thank you Jeff Sterley and Team!

    • I sincerely appreciate services Jeff Sterley provided in the marketing and sale of the Novato home that I owned for 40 years. He was always responsive and prompt. Jeff helped me understand the details of the process and anticipate steps moving forward.He provided guidance to enhance the visuals for the presentation of the house and answered every question - big or small.I had hopeful expectations that Jeff exceeded in finding the right buyer and making the move as smooth as possible. I recommend Jeff Sterley highly-he does indeed leave no stone unturned.

    • I had listed my San Anselmo home with another broker with poor results. When I was introduced to Jeff Sterley, he impressed me with his dynamic marketing campaign and trustworthiness. After the previous months of frustration, Jeff got great results instantly. I continue to recommend him highly to my own friends.

    • I had used Jeff Sterley a few years ago to sell our Sleepy Hollow home. Jeff was recommended because of his marketing expertise and he did not disappoint. The process went very smoothly and the results were great.When it came to selling my mother's condominium in Tiburon, my family interviewed several brokers and Jeff Sterley again had the best plan. We were open to updating the property a bit to sell quickly and get the best return. Jeff came in with a proposal to install staging and make a number of cosmetic changes.The improvements made a big difference and we were able to sell with multiple offers for $150,000 above the asking price. Jeff is a seasoned expert with his clients best results in mind.

    • I was looking to buy my first home and one of my associates had worked with Jeff several times and referred me to him. It took a while to find the right house in this strong sellers market. Jeff was very patient, encouraging and clearly explained each step of the process. He made me feel very comfortable. I found the right house in Sun Valley, San Rafael and could not be happier. I highly recommend Jeff to anyone and, especially, first time home buyers like myself.Keith Bancroft

    • After living in one of the Larkspur Historic Victorians for 30 years, I made the difficult decision to sell. Jeff was referred to me by my former next door neighbor whom Jeff helped to buy a home. I confess, I wasn't in the brightest of moods, and Jeff took all my grumpy dark side with a confident, patient, and forgiving attitude. This impressed me. I knew that if he could put up with all that, he could do just about anything.He brought his team in to fix the neglected yard, and he added some expertise and wisdom to other issues which I knew nothing about. The house sold quickly to a family who now loves it. Someone who's been in the business as long as Jeff has radiates a relaxed and no nonsense air. I hope I never have to sell again, but if I do, I know who to call.

    • We have known and worked with Jeff Sterley for more than 25 years. When we told Jeff we were thinking of looking for a larger property in Novato, after living in San Rafael for 10 years, he went right to work and found us a one-of-a-kind four acre property with 42 oak trees on Indian Valley Road, upon which we build a custom home. After 12 years, we still love our home and thank Jeff for helping to make it happen. Jeff is one of the best agents in Marin County, very easy to work with, and we strongly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell Marin property. You wont be disappointed. ---Jim Duckworth

    • Jeff has helped me find two houses to buy and later sell in Novato over the last eleven years. Recently when I sold my last home in Novato, he really proved himself to be an expert marketer and the house sold very quickly with great buyers. When I was searching for a house to buy in Fairfax, where I had dreamed of living for years, he really went all out to help me find something in my price range in a very tight seller's market. He was a fantastic tough negotiator and I bought a lovely creekside home in Fairfax, where I hope to spend many years. Jeff is kind, very honest , fair, and an incredibly hard worker. I would recommend him as a realtor to everyone.

      - Caroline Berry
    • I was hoping to find a home that had a combination of a neighborhood feel but also slightly non-tract and little bit private. Jeff Sterley counseled with me about my wish list and also the things I did not want in a house or a neighborhood. He found the perfect house for me and my kids in Fairfax. If he's not THE most experienced realtor in Marin, surely he must be close! I'd recommend Jeff in a heartbeat. Thank you Jeff!

    • We highly recommend Jeff and could not have expected better representation in the sale of our home!We engaged Jeff in the sale of our house of 20 years in San Rafael. Jeff is very experienced and was extremely informative and helpful throughout the process of readying of our home for sale, the listing and ultimate sale of our home.Jeff developed a thorough marketing plan and was diligent in executing it to success. Even when a challenge would arise, Jeff had both the wisdom and contacts to remedy them in an extremely timely manner.If you are looking for a realtor, you could do no better than selecting Jeff!
