Muriel Ballard


Having traveled extensively and lived in Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Austin, Texas (the second best place in the country) and in both Southern and Northern California, I believe with all my heart that those of us who get to live in Marin County have won the lottery on lifestyle! The dedicated open space, the weather, the bay and the proximity to the beach and the mountains make Marin a little slice of heaven. With development nearly 100% closed, property is precious here and so our values survive the rise and fall in the economy with characteristic strength.

Before being a Realtor my professional path was defined by my need to challenge myself and grow. I have been the sole-proprietor of my own business on a number of occasions, including owning a clothing store in Austin, TX. I had a Professional Coaching practice for six years with clients including entrepreneurs from around the world as well as professionals in the entertainment industry. I worked in the entertainment industry in jobs ranging from Publicist to Producer’s Assistant to Production Coordinator. I also held a management position in the IT department of an Australian Fortune 500 Company. Through all of these experiences, I learned how to communicate, negotiate, manage, train and ultimately be resourceful.

I CARE about my clients. I have led an exciting an adventurous life and I love to learn, which is probably what I enjoy about selling real estate. Every day brings new people, new challenges and new joys, as I support people like you in their quest to find a home to love for years and/or a smart real estate investment! Successfully connecting you with a sound choice is my greatest reward.

My joys include writing, international travel, fine wine & dining, nurturing my family and playing with my friends.

I believe in expressing gratitude for my success through the age old practice of tithing 10% of my income.

Community Projects:

I am a passionate advocate of the importance of education. As such, I will donate 10% of my commission to the school of your choice after close of escrow.

If you have another charity that is near and dear to your heart, I would be happy to alternatively allocate the 10% to a charity of your designation.


There is no future without a healthy environment. As such, I have chosen the National Resource Defense Council as the primary beneficiary of my donation dollars. They achieve high marks in allocating their collected funds. “NRDC is the nation’s most effective environmental action group, combining the grassroots power of 1.3 million members and online activists with the courtroom clout and expertise of more than 350 lawyers, scientists and other professionals. The New York Times calls us “One of the nation’s most powerful environmental groups.” The National Journal says we’re “A credible and forceful advocate for stringent environmental protection.” Please feel free to read more about them by following this link: www.nrdc.org

If you have a special project you’d like to get done, let’s talk about it. I will be happy to donate 10% of my commission to your worthy cause!
