Home ownership is the cornerstone of the American dream.  Marie remembers the excitement and triumph of purchasing her first home as if it were yesterday.  51 Sunview in San Anselmo was just over 1,000 sf, built in the 50’s with a wood stove for heat.  The mortgage and taxes were high. The new tar and gravel roof leaked the second year.  But she was so happy to be a homeowner.  And looking back, life has been better ever since because of that first home purchase leap of faith.  Marie would be honored to accompany you on your journey and leap of faith to find your next home.

Marie Hoch considers herself an "almost native" Marin resident, having lived in Marin since 1981. After having homes in Larkspur, San Anselmo and San Rafael, she moved to Hamilton Field, Novato in 1999 as part of the first wave of homeowners in this new community.  It was an unforgettable experience and an education in community and neighborhood development.  Marie was appointed and served on the Novato Planning Commission and the Novato Design Review Commission.  Today she is president of the Hamilton Field of Marin Association, a mixed use HOA composed of owners of 852 homes and owners of over 400,000 square feet of commercial space.  If you want to know anything about Hamilton Field Novato, your first call should be to Marie.

Marie lives in the Southgate neighborhood of Hamilton Field with her partner of 25 years, Peter Shamray and their dog Lass. She has a special interest in real estate law, HOA management, property entitlement and development and real estate planning and investment.  She loves to entertain and give parties in her home, she is an amateur artist and she worked in software technology for 25 years before becoming a real estate agent.

To Whom It May Concern:

I have had the privilege of owning a number of homes over the course of my lifetime and therefore have had ample opportunity to meet, observe and enjoy the services of real estate agents. Of the dozens of agents I have known personally over the course of sixty years, Marie Hoch is, categorically, the very best. She is the model of a smart, caring and extremely competent agent. Having been blessed by her superior services, I can’t imagine ever engaging anyone else to buy or sell a home. She’s that good!

Over a year ago, my wife and I were fortunate (through a series of serendipitous events) to find Marie. We were so impressed by her professionalism in finding us the ideal house and even more impressed with her as a person. Marie isn’t just a real estate agent; she seems becomes fast friends with everyone she represents. Her warm, friendly and gracious manner draw people in; and it is all genuine. Marie has an infectious joy that is magnetic. She is fun to be around! She is also extremely thoughtful, frequently writing notes of encouragement and appreciation; inviting clients to her home; and buying them gifts (my wife and I used the hiking poles Marie gave to us so we could climb Mt. Burdell, which we did almost daily—and sometimes Marie joined us on these hikes).

The world is in need of competent people, and Marie is the most competent real estate agent I have ever known. In brief, she is a treasure. I can’t imagine anyone being disappointed in her work and I can’t imagine anyone not wanting to be her friend!

"As we began our search for a new house for the first time in many years, we knew we wanted someone who would carefully listen to what we wished to find and help us locate the next place we would happily call "home". We met a number of very good, nice agents before Marie but she possessed an extra special spark of intelligence and energy level which was evident almost immediately.


Working with her we further discovered that she respects the desires of her clients, listens closely, asks a lot of good questions, is patient, and doesn't push people into a bad fit. She actively kept us in mind as new properties came on the market and educated us on the different areas in which we were looking. A people person, her caring and sense of humor also lifted the stress of searching. When our new home was found, she guided us through the purchasing process in a manner that was straightforward, detailed, efficient and has left us with no regrets. We highly recommend Marie."

"Marie listed and sold my mother's home in Petaluma earlier this year. She was very responsive, always upbeat, and went the extra mile in helping prepare the house for sale, marketing, and the selling and closing process. When the house was ready and went on the market, we received a good offer in the first week an closed less than thirty days later. I would highly recommend Marie if you are thinking of selling or buying in Marin or Sonoma counties."

"Marie is an amazing realtor and person! She was the seller's agent for the house that I purchased. She was so professional, warm and welcoming that she really made the difference for me in deciding I wanted to make an offer. She has continued to reach out and support me in my transition to Novato. She goes so far above and beyond that she stands out as someone very special."

"Marie went above and beyond - both in helping to get the house ready by interfacing with contractors and maintenance people, and in marketing our house. She was always promptly in touch and very helpful assisting us through the navigation of the sales an closing process. We received a good offer the first weekend the house was listed and closed less than a month later. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering selling or buying a house in Marin or Sonoma Counties."
