Marsha Bell


Real Estate is a relationship business. Although we negotiate and market homes, we are in the business of helping people through transitions in their lives (getting married, having babies, empty nesting, investing for family reasons) and for someone to invite us into that process is an honor and requires trust in us and our skill set.

I have been a resident of Marin for over 35 years. I raised my family, devoted time to volunteering at my children’s schools, kept an eye on local politics as they affected education and the quality of life in the region, and acquired an understanding of the cities and neighborhoods of the county.

Through my own efforts to downsize as my children left the nest, I can be a great help to others hoping to do the same – assisting them not only in finding a new home, but also with the difficult task of shrinking the volume of their possessions – all accomplished with a sympathetic understanding of the emotional aspect of this change. I also hold an SRES designation, taking this a step further with the needs and concerns of seniors.

Whether you’re looking to buy or sell in Marin or Sonoma county, I will assist you with every phase of the process. I listen and focus on what my client’s real estate needs are and make certain I exceed their expectations. I have a passion for my real estate career and I love what I do. 

I look forward to assisting you through your transitions. 

What Clients Are Saying

We recently sold our home in Novato, CA because we were relocating to New York. Our agent in New York did some research and found Marsha Bell, Re/Max located on Grant AVE. Novato, CA. This research lead us to an excellent choice in realtors.
She was super responsive as if we were her only client. At the initial meeting, Marsha was very helpful and explained the process that exemplified her expertise. Our selling process started before the Shelter in Place order but Marsha smoothly transitioned through the many obstacles that COVID 19 presented. But with her patience, knowledge and overall outgoing personality, she got us through it. We would highly recommend Marsha Bell whether you are selling or buying a home.

Marsha helped us sell our home and buy another. Very attentive and responsive! She made us feel like we were her only client. Marsha and her partner in crime Stacy Lynch at Re/max Gold helped us understand the real estate market when we were just learning. Very patient and kind. Thanks to Marsha and Stacy we are super happy with our new home and excited to move in. Thanks ladies! 

We are super happy with our new home!

Marsha was more than generous in sharing her time and knowledge with my son and I as he searched for an apartment to rent in the difficult San Francisco market. She researched his needs thoroughly and was able to show us every possible type of apartment in his price range. Her extensive knowledge of the city and the various locations have eased his transition from Boston. Her friendly demeanor and great sense of humor as well as punctuality and easy accessibility made our experience a very pleasant one. I have no hesitation in recommending her highly for any real estate need!

Marsha was very attentive

Marsha Bell is one of the best real estate agent I worked with for getting my american dream home come true. She was helping us from the day one, sending us with emails about various properties that match our complex requirements. I am originally from a different country, but Marsha explained all the process involved from seeing the property until closing of the escrow. She helped us in every step choosing the right home loan, performing inspections of properties, talking to planning dept, negotiating with seller for the contingencies etc., I would definitely recommend Marsha Bell with any kind of real estate requirements. If the time ever comes when I will be looking for a new home, there isn't any question on who my Realtor will be!

Marsha Bell is one of the best real estate agent I worked with

IF I COULD GIVE MORE STARS I WOULD!! We moved from Austin, Texas with very little knowledge of what to expect from California real estate. Marsha helped us find a beautiful rental apartment to stay in while we searched for our new home and was extremely helpful and knowledgeable when learning the in's and out's of different areas of SF and Marin. Marsha understands the needs of a client. I always felt like I could contact her for any questions I had. There was a delay in the arrival of our furniture and Marsha lent us everything we needed to survive in our new house until our belongings arrived. That is going above and beyond!! I cannot impress upon you more how great our experience was.

We really enjoyed working with Marsha on the purchase of our house in Fairfax. Responsive to all our questions and fast moving pace of our purchase, Marsha was great.

I first met Marsha when she was showing an open house - I was immediately pleased that she was approachable & intelligible without harassing me as a home shopper; she seemed to want to connect with me rather than just make a sale (unlike most realtors, if you've been to an open house, you know what I mean). Since she is local to my area, she was incredibly knowledgeable in helping me find my home. As a new homeowner, I appreciated her quick communication and simple explanations, along with her realtor partner Stacy Lynch. She seemed to understand my lifestyle & match it to the listings out there. As a plus, I'm very pleased with both the home and the realtor service!

Marsha showed me around several neighborhoods in San Francisco and set up nearly a dozen appointments for apartment showings. It was my first time in the city and I was pretty daunted by the process of apartment hunting. Marsha picked me up at my hotel each day and spent hours driving me around the city, making things much simpler for me. I was impressed with how organized she was--each day we had a meticulously crafted itinerary. In the end, she was instrumental in me finding my dream apartment in a great neighborhood. I cannot recommend Marsha highly enough.

I cannot recommend Marsha highly enough

Marsha went out of her way to make buying our new home as painless as possible. She was always one step ahead of us getting things set up and making everything happen quickly. I would highly recommend Marsha to anyone buying or selling a home. She is very knowledgeable and professional but has a genuine down to earth helpful quality about her.

Marsha went out of her way

People say that selling a home can be one of the most stressful things you can do, but thanks to Marsha I was informed, organized and on schedule for the whole process. As a result, I got my dream offer with the first open house. Having Marsha as your realtor will save you hours of stress and get you a great result.

Thanks to Marsha I was informed

After 6 months of searching for a home and multiple heartbreaks we met Marsha Bell and felt an instant connection. Her down to earth personality, market insight and availability was exactly what we needed. Throughout the entire buying process Marsha was attentive, supportive and provided excellent advice as we navigated the largest purchase of our life. Marsha is an excellent listener with deep connections throughout the Novato market, a first class rolodex of tradesmen and inspectors, and an exceptional team. This coupled with Marsha's driven work ethic was instrumental in us closing on our dream home in just 22 days! We highly recommend Marsha Bell to anyone looking for a realtor.

Felt an instant connection

I can write a story about how amazing Marsha is. She made the process of selling our condo and purchasing our home so smooth. It is one of the most stressful things we've done. But with her patience, knowledge and overall outgoing personality got us through it. I would definitely use her again.
