Katie Jarman, Marin County Realtor

Marin County Real Estate Expertise

As A Marin County Realtor, I bring to my clients an extensive background in pre-market home preparation.  I am involved in all aspects of this phase and treat each home like my own.  Whether it’s selecting light fixtures or improving landscaping, I have the knowledge to make cost-effective selections on your behalf.  I don’t mind rolling up my sleeves and providing on-site guidance to tradespeople. This is part of my service to my clients.  I have personally purchased and sold 11 homes and possess superior knowledge of remodeling, home maintenance and interior design. I am considered by many as a highly-regarded resource for home-related questions. As a 21-year Kentfield resident I have a deep knowledge of the schools, both public and private, and the Marin community.

Business Philosophy

I am a highly-driven, results-oriented Marin County real estate professional who is extremely organized, loves working with people and strives to provide 150 percent in everything that I do. I bring to the real estate industry a successful track record in marketing, negotiation, investment management and project management from my years in banking, human resources, travel and fundraising. I consider myself very polished and thorough and my focus in real estate is to provide a smooth and pleasant experience for my clients. I can accomplish this by drawing on my strong presentation skills and utilizing my vast network of resources that I have carefully vetted over the years. I live by the Golden Rule and my values and integrity define who I am. I’d rather not do a deal than compromise my core values.

Prior Work Experience

After graduating from the University of California at Berkeley with a BA in Political Science, I moved to San Francisco and began my career at the Shaklee Corporation. One of my first jobs was to assist in the opening of a technical training center.  I loved training executives and employees to use the new IBM technology. After five years, I decided to move my career in a different direction and was hired at Bank of America to provide sales training to upper-level branch employees. I stayed at the bank for 11 years, holding a variety of challenging management positions. As the Vice President of a sixty-person telephone call center, I trained my employees to always put the customer first. I launched new products and programs in the Credit and Debit Card marketing departments aimed at improving the customer experience. Learning to get things done in a large corporation was a challenge and required me to use my skills in negotiation, project management and leadership. The combination of all these skills has seamlessly transferred over to my real estate career and helped me to become a successful realtor in a short time.
