Smith Ranch Homes is a truly unique community. While there are some parallels to a general brokerage property, selling a retirement community is a much more involved process.
Angela M. Hinckley, Broker
I have over 40 years in real estate, which includes over 30 years selling homes at Smith Ranch Homes. During these years I have acquired extensive legal and technical knowledge of the brokerage process and work diligently in maintaining this expertise through continuing education. My primary focus in real estate has been in project sales, where I have consistently represented the interest of the seller and achieved prices consistent with the market. I have accomplished all sales goals with full and complete disclosure to the buyer keeping in mind the needs and abilities of a buyer to perform. My prior background includes management, interior design, and the renovation and building of homes.
Connie L. Kirwin, Broker
I have invested 30 years specializing onsite at Smith Ranch Homes. Selling at Smith Ranch involves a different strategy than a general brokerage. It is in your best interest to be confident that your listing and selling agent is capable and able to make full disclosures. Our combined experience and complementary talents plus a database of over 4,500+ clients make Smith Ranch Marketing the only real estate brokerage capable of providing the in-depth knowledge necessary to represent your listing. We work with you through the entire process enabling you to receive the highest price possible in the shortest time.
After five years of specializing in real estate taxation at Coopers & Lybrand (CPA firm in San Francisco – currently merged with Price Waterhouse), three years as an independent tax consultant to small businesses in Marin and three years in project sales for new development, I have been working with buyers and sellers of Smith Ranch homes for three decades.
SMITH RANCH MARKETING
Our outstanding success is attributed to 30 years’ experience, acquiring knowledge and honing our skills to best represent buyers and sellers, that no other brokerage firm can duplicate.
My husband and I have now purchased two condos at Smith Ranch in the last seven years. The first was for my in-laws and the second was for my parents. We did exhaustive research before deciding on SR. Both times! It is truly one of a kind. It is absolutely beautiful! Feels like a luxury resort!
The grounds, units, clubhouse, restaurants are beautiful!
The dining experience is like no other facility! A five star restaurant!
Residents are treated with great respect. All the time. By ALL the employees.
SR goes the distance to take care of their residents. Valet services of all kinds made our parents feel cared for, at the same time, maintaining their independence.
Easy maintenance, weekly cleaning, emergency call buttons in every room of their condo makes life so much easier for them!
AND, the real estate transactions were so easy and straight-forward!
Smith Ranch Marketing took care of us for our three transactions (two times purchasing, one time selling).
They are extremely knowledgeable about SR. They were great at reading our parents and their needs. And helping us help them. They couldn’t have made it easier. They took care of every little thing, seeming to know what we needed before we did. The transactions went perfectly and smoothly. Absolutely nothing to worry or fuss about!
We would highly recommend Smith Ranch and its Marketing Associates!
Buyer & Seller
I am a four-years resident of Smith Ranch Homes, a wonderful self-governed retirement community located in Marin County, California.
Smith Ranch Marketing Associates is a professional real estate broker firm serving Smith Ranch residents for almost 30 years since Smith Ranch’s founding.
I have both purchased and sold condominiums at Smith Ranch, where Angela has been my advisor and broker – and very good friend. Her knowledge, skills, integrity, energy, and creativity totally define her value to me – and to the hundreds, perhaps thousands, of her clients here over these years.
In a very sophisticated retirement community and ever-evolving residential real estate market, Smith Ranch Marketing has proven to me that they are fully able to skillfully focus and synthesize all of these qualities to each of her clients’ individual needs and yield the best possible result.

“Angela went above and beyond helping to sell my condo at Smith Ranch. She made all the arrangements for necessary sprucing up and inspections in addition to coordinating all the paperwork for the sale. Big thanks to her and her staff.” ~Gail H
I have lived at Smith Ranch for four years. We had lived in San Rafael since 1956. I serve on a San Rafael City Commission, so I wanted to stay within the San Rafael city limits. My husband and I had been looking at moving to a Retirement community just prior to his death. Four years after his death I decided to make the move.
Smith Ranch provides everything that I was looking to find in my new home. Lovely gardens with hummingbirds and bees right outside my window, a 35 acre garden that is so well maintained AND I don’t have to do any of it. Wonderful food without my having to cook prepared by our own Chef.
My first joy was watching a maintenance man removing leaves from the gutters. I didn’t have to call him, he just came and did it. While I was away, the once a week cleaning lady, found a leak under the sink. When I came home I had a lovely new faucet installed. No pain, no strain and a SMALL bill from our Maintenance department.
In addition, to all that, I dine with very interesting people. Many are my Marin county acquaintances, but many are from all over the US. It is a lot better than watching the news for dinner. Please join me for dinner.
My wife and I have made our home in Southern Marin for last 52 years. We knew it was time to move from our larger property with its maintenance responsibilities and multiple floors to a smaller, more manageable location.
Now in our mid 70’s we had looked for almost five years for the right senior community to join. After inspecting many properties from Palo Alto to Santa Rosa we focused our search on Smith Ranch Homes as the place for us. We are pleased to say we recently closed on our choice of property there. Smith Ranch offers everything we had been looking for. Many options of different dwellings, a beautiful well maintained 32-acre campus, terrific amenities, security and much more.
One can tell how a place is properly managed by engaging the staff that actually runs the day-to-day operations. Over the past few months we have met personnel from housekeeping, security, maintenance, valet and yes management. In every case we found all the employees to be well trained, courteous, respectful and responsive to our needs as new members of the community.
We absolutely know Smith Ranch Homes was the right choice to spend this next phase of our lives.
