"I worked with Meredith McCarty in the difficult task of selling my deceased mother's home. She came in with good ideas for getting the house ready for sale. All her efforts paid off when we sold the house shortly after it was put on the market. Working with Meredith was a pleasure, and her knowledge and attention to detail was impressive. I would be honored to recommend Meredith in any real estate regard."-Jonathan Bassil, Novato

Meredith's career in real estate is preceded by three decades of experience in the holistic health field. Formerly an Associate Editor of Natural Health
magazine, she is a practicing Nutrition Educator through her business, Healing Cuisine (www.healingcuisine.com
). Meredith has helped thousands of people come into balance in their eating habits through her personal consultations, lectures, and cooking classes worldwide. She is the author of three cookbooks, including the award-winning "Sweet and Natural." An ease in listening to people's wants and needs in real estate matters, as well as her attention to detail (a necessary skill in creating successful contracts), comes from her years with this "helping" work which is her passion and service now.
Over the three decades that I have lived in Northern California, Marin County has always been my favorite place. The exquisite combination of spectacular natural beauty with the best in cultural events, and exciting dining and shopping, makes for a truly fine quality of life.
For relaxation, I really enjoy going for a walk with a friend on the Tennessee Valley Trail to the Pacific Ocean, or exploring the ranches and rolling hills of West Marin. Fine food is a passion and there's just no limit to experiencing a rich variety of cooking styles, all within 20 minutes of home.
My favorite organizations are the Marin Agricultural Land Trust based in Pt. Reyes Station in West Marin, the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, and the Global Fund for Women based in San Francisco.
