Tina McArthur has unparalleled knowledge of Marin as only a long-time resident can possess. Born and raised in San Francisco, where her mother had a jewelry store (Rosetti Jewelers) in the Marina District, Tina understood the beauty of hidden gems and the finesse it takes to market them. Inspired by the family business, Tina earned degrees at both San Francisco City College and San Francisco State University. Studies abroad included a year in Italy where she embraced the culture, studied the architecture, and learned the language.
Tina has been selling real estate since 1979 and was one of the first to incorporate a “team approach” in selling real estate. Tina and her team provide diversified talents, top-notch service, and powerful negotiating skills for clients. Both buyers and sellers benefit from working with Tina as she excels in preparing and showcasing sellers’ homes and markets them with dedication, enthusiasm, and boundless energy. Buyers benefit from her in-depth understanding of market values, and her attention to her client’s needs has earned Tina a place among the most respected realtors in Marin County. Consistently ranked in the top 5 percent of all agents countywide, more than 75 percent of the business consists of repeat clients and referrals.
Tina has sold multiple units in several residential developments where she learned the art of showcasing properties, spot-on target marketing, powerful negotiation skills, and the seamless execution of creative, competitive sales strategies. An active member of five real estate networking groups, including the invitation only Top Agent Network, Tina consistently keeps her clients connected to off-market information.
As a longtime resident of Marin, Tina has a deep respect for the history and the quality of life that is uniquely Marin. Her work on several boards, including the Marin Theatre Company and Board President of the Lark Movie Theater, proves her dedication to the Marin cultural scene. For Tina knows that Marin is not only about beautiful homes, it’s also about the community. She spent nine years on the board of the Ritter Center, an organization committed to serving the working poor and homeless residents of Marin. This experience has deepened her understanding and compassion for the underserved. As co-chair of R.O.S.A (Railroad Open Space Acquisition), she proved her commitment to preserving the Larkspur/Corte Madera bike path, one of the town's most precious assets. She understands how communities grow and evolve while maintaining traditional charm and character.
With her experience in buying and selling Marin real estate, she brings an intimate, intuitive grasp of what “moving in” and “moving on” means to her clients. Tina has earned the respect of clients and colleagues through honest, transparent, decisive, and strategic negotiating. One of the many benefits of working with Tina is that she always has your “back.”
