We had the pleasure of working with Beat as we sold our townhome in Sausalito. He helped us along every step of the process, and proved to be very knowledgeable of the local market. He is honest, hard working, and a pleasure to work with. We always felt we were in great hands, and believe that he was able to help us fetch the best possible price we could have received in our market. We have come to trust him as a professional and really like him as a person as well. We can't recommend Beat highly enough, and we would gladly welcome working with him again.

Beat both helped us buy a house and sell a house and we were very pleased with him both times. It really is amazing how many uninformed, unprofessional realtors there are out there - we have had to go through the process several times. However, Beat is informative, very well versed in all areas of real estate buying and selling, is a very calming presence and an over-all great guy. Beat is by far a realtor in the top 5% and we are very, very happy to recommend Beat to anyone buying or selling a house in Marin county. Like with any large "used" purchase, buying or selling a home can be super-stressful and Beat was great at setting us at ease and making sure everything went smoothly. He really knows his stuff and isn't about just closing - he wants to make sure you are getting the best deal and knows how things should be priced and how to negotiate. You can't go wrong with Beat representing you, and if we ever plan on moving back to Marin he will be the first person we call!
Home Seller, Redwood City
Having had the opportunity to work with Beat not once but seven times, through buying our initial home here to three more purchases--including an investment unit and two more sales, I can say unequivocally that Beat is a consummate professional. His knowledge of the region and understanding of the local market, his expertise in negotiating and his tireless efforts on behalf of his clients are nothing short of exceptional. I have recommended him to friends and family who also have found him as have we: forthright, honest, knowledgeable, thoroughly prepared, and, most of all, compassionate, sensitive to his clients' wishes and occasional whims, and sincerely devoted to helping his clients, whom he treats as friends and colleagues. I can't say enough about Beat--he is truly a gem in a field too often filled with lesser stones.
Home Buyer, Tiburon
Beat sold our house in S..F. He is extremely trustworthy and knowledgeable, we were confident he had our best interest in mind at all times. He instinctively understood our wants and needs and it was clearly reflected in our negotiations. We recommend him to all our friends, and he is our realtor for life. I would highly recommend him for any job.
Home Seller, San Francisco
Beat is one of the most honest and capable people I've ever met. He has worked in this market for years and has a huge understanding of the local real estate market. He has the highest of ethical standards and exemplifies honesty and integrity. Beat has a very engaging personality and made the whole process fun. Buying a house can be stressful at times, and Beat helped to make it much less so, as he is so knowledgeable, capable and experienced. He is uber-responsive, and goes the extra mile when in all respects...answering your questions, making sure the property is the right one for you, helping refer you to a reputable mortgage lending team, walking through the documents...assisting during the close....being there after the close to make sure all is as it should be. He was an absolute pleasure to work with, and I would not hesitate to work with him again, and I would refer him to anyone I know that is looking to buy or sell a home.
Home Buyer, Tiburon
Beat is a class act! One of the best things about working with him is his level of integrity. We completely trusted him every step of the way! I will recommend Beat to all my friends and family!
Kris Hinckley, San Rafael
Beat was recommended to me by two people I knew who had bought and sold their homes with Beat's help and they recommended him hand's down. They were right. He was above and beyond expectations. I was new to the area and he educated me about the neighborhoods and helped me find the perfect home. Without his help, I would have settled for something that I would have regretted and instead he encouraged me to stay patient and discouraged me from making bad decisions. He even helped me find a rental that was the perfect interim home for my kids and me until we found our home. Beat was not only on top of every detail, great at negotiating, knowledgeable about Marin, and very focused on finding the perfect home for me, he was also a lot of fun to spend time with in the process. Beyond helping me buy a home, Beat made sure I found a place I would love and I knew that he wouldn't be happy unless I was happy. I've since refered Beat to someone else who had a great experience with Beat as well selling their home. I would give him more than 5 stars and anyone who has Beat to help them buy or sell their property will feel lucky to have his expertise. Besides, he has a great sense of humor to help make the process all the easier.
Home Buyer, Mill Valley
Put simply - we wouldn't use any other agent in Marin. Beat's advice was invaluable during our home search and ultimate home purchase in Mill Valley as we were new to the area and needed to understand the market quickly and find the right home. As someone in sales, I've always appreciated a consultative and non-push experience and that was our experience with Beat. He guided us from making offers on properties he knew would not work and ultimately recommended a home we absolutely love and now own. We always felt he had our best interest in mind and have recommended him time and time again with similar feedback from friends. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone seeking a local real estate agent in Marin.
Gary Leikin, Mill Valley
Whether you are a first time buyer or experienced in real estate, Beat Bossart will guide you every step of the way with his professional wizardry. Beat will answer questions before you even ask them, and deliver clear and precise explanations to those you do. His expertise, knowledge of Marin's market trends, and exceptional navigation skills will have you impressed before the process even begins, and stay with you until well after it's over!
My wife and I have used Beat on both the selling end, to sell our Greenbrae home in 2010, and on the buying end. for our new townhouse in Mill Valley. The recent purchase exemplifies Beat's work ethic. It took us three years to make up our minds but Beat stuck with us throughout this ordeal and eventually found the right home for us.
What makes Beat so good is his skillset. He possesses the key attributes that all succesful realtors should have - good knowledge of the local market, excellent disposition, the ability to quickly determine a property's real value, negotiating skills and the ability to understand all the forms involved in real estate as well as the ability to explain them to buyers and sellers.
Trust me. I've dealt with many agents in the last fourty years. You cannot go wrong with Beat.
Home Seller, Mill Valley
Working with Beat to buy our first property in Marin County was our greatest pleasure. Beat's expertise in Marin real estate was evident from the get-go. We enjoyed meeting with Beat and discussing our ideal home and he thoughtfully showed us several properties that would perfectly fit our needs. Buying real estate from across the country is a challenging prospect, but Beat was available for us every step of the way. There is not a more knowledgeable or genuine person we would have rather worked with. We would recommend Beat to our closest friends and family. Thank you, Beat - we are living our dreams in Marin!
Home Buyer, Terra Linda
I first met Beat when he sold the condo upstairs from mine, and I saw how amazing he was to my neighbor as she moved in to her first home. I later met him while he was selling another condo in our complex, and was able to see the detail and time he put into showing a home - staging, welcoming visitors, and ultimately selling quickly! Not having a place to sell or buy at the time, I introduced Beat to very good friends who where selling their home - they loved him, and their house sold quickly over asking. He worked with them to get the home ready, never overselling, always available to answer questions. Incredibly knowledgeable on the area, the current market, and the process.
Finally, last year I had the opportunity to work directly with Beat!! A very dear friend had a terrible medical accident and had to leave her house very quickly, and sell. As she was in the hospital, I managed the sell for her, working with Beat. For so many reasons, this was an incredibly emotional time - we had so many challenges. All the way, Beat was amazing - attentive, helpful, understanding, and all the while incredibly confident and reassuring that all would work out. He helped us stage to perfection, and we received our first (and best) offer before the first open house.
I cannot say enough good things about working with Beat, whether you are buying or selling a home in Marin! I look forward to the next opportunity.

We had the pleasure of working with Beat during our relocation to Marin. He helped us find a short term rental home initially and then continued to work with us for our purchase transaction. He has proven to be an expert in Marin and he was tied into the local network allowing us to make the winning bid on an off-market listing. He’s extremely resourceful when it comes to schools, building codes, city hall, insurance agents, contractors, etc. He also is always honest and sincere, a quality that seems rare in today's realtor industry. It is clear that he operates on a long term view rather than trying to get an easy sale. We have come to trust him as a professional and really like him as a person on top. We highly recommend him.
Home Buyer, Mill Valley
Beat navigated the sale of my home with grace and expert professionalism. He managed to make what seemed to be a challenging situation pressed on time into a wonderful and meaningful experience that resulted in an above expectations outcome. If you are looking for a trustworthy, reliable, respectful, and all around friendly broker who will go to bat for you and your family, Beat is your guy!
Billy Smith, Mill Valley, CA
I've had the pleasure of working with Beat handling both selling and buying a property and can't recommend him highly enough. Both experiences were easy with him as a guide through the intricacies of the buying and selling procedures. His knowledge of the real estate market in Marin is outstanding. He was consistently responsive and I believe went well out of his way to provide the best assistance possible. I can't recommend him highly enough.
Home Seller, Corte Madera
Beat was my broker for a home I bought in September, 2017 in San Anselmo. Beat was outstanding and I can't recommend him enough if you're looking to buy or sell a home in Marin.
During the home search, Beat was all over new listings and had a deep understanding of the Marin home market. He would email me immediately with new listings and provide his perspective on the property, the pros and cons, and was just super helpful in this regard. Then, if I was interested in seeing a house, Beat was always available to show it to me and had great insights on each home we looked at. He never pushed his opinion but always provided a valuable and objective perspective. His demeanor is calm and extremely professional.
When me and my wife finally found a home in San Anselmo that we wanted to bid on, Beat guided us beautifully. He helped us put together a very solid offer. Our bid was the one accepted and I am deeply appreciate to Beat for that, because I think he played a big part of it. One thing I picked up on during my housing search was how well respected Beat is by other real estate brokers in Marin. Whenever I told someone that Beat was my agent, the response was invariably positive. I think having a broker who is so well respected also helped my offer.
Finally, during the contingency period, Beat coordinated the closing, helped me set up the repair work, and was just always available to answer questions. Even after closing, Beat continues to be helpful with figuring out the needed repairs to the property and planning my move in.
I cannot recommend Beat highly enough and am so grateful for having him as my real estate agent.
Michael Hamilton, San Anselmo
First let me qualify this review by saying that my husband was owner of a real estate company for 30 years so we are familiar with all aspects of sales.
That said, we absolutely love Beat as a person and respect his professionalism and knowledge of the market. We were amoung two other offers being presented and we prevailed mainly due to his suggestions on how we should prepare our offer. Brilliant!!! You won't find a nicer human being that can connect with people and their individual needs. We consider him a dear friend and will continue to refer our family and friends to him. Our experience was absolutely wonderful in every way.
Home Buyer, San Rafael
Beat was amazingly helpful throughout our home search. My husband and I are first time homebuyers and we were very unsure of the process and how things would go. Beat was responsive, patient, and calming throughout our work together. Home buying can be stressful, but Beat was able to communicate clearly exactly what was happening and what we could expect at each turn. I was extremely happy with the all of the support Beat gave us and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell or buy a new home!
Jessa Hager, Novato
Beat is a great agent to work with whether you are buying or selling. He is very knowledgeable, patient, thorough. He cares about his clients and ensures they understand all information.
Home Seller, Novato
I gave Beat five stars on everything because once he took on the job of selling my mothers house he took care of everything in a timely fashion. Organizing painting, carpets, etc with the stager, open houses, negotiating between myself and buyers, everything needed to get the property sold quickly. My family and I are very pleased and would not hesitate to use Beat again. Very professional service.
Home Seller, Pacific Heights, San Francisco
Beat is a polite, meticulous, and dedicated realtor. He was always extremely responsive to any questions I might have, and he and his "team" were very helpful and pro-active about addressing any problems or issues that came up. He is clearly focused on selling houses in such a way that everyone feels they were treated fairly and had all the information available to them in a useful way. He was honorable and professional in every way throughout the entire process of selling my house.
Karl Yorston, Sausalito
Beat was extremely thorough and conscientious with the staging and selling of my aunts house I felt completely comfortable letting him take care of everything. As a result, everyone came out ahead. I highly recommend him to anyone who is selling or buying a home.
Sally Hagstrom, Mill Valley
Working with Beat was an exceptional experience. We started looking for our first home in 2013, and he patiently helped us navigate the process until we purchased in 2017. Because of the competitive housing market in Marin, we put several offers on houses during that time and Beat was steady hand in through it all. We ended up purchasing a house in 2017 off market and he was instrumental in finding and negotiating the deal. Then, in 2019, because of a growing family and a reluctance to renovate (our initial plan),Beat helped us find another home in 2019. Again, we went into the offer maelstrom and he was a steady and patient hand. We ended up purchasing in an ideal location and Beat then helped us stage and sell our first home for well over the asking price. He was integral to the good decisions we made during the process and was always available to us. Couldn't recommend him more!
Alexander Mossman, Larkspur, CA
Beat is an all around awesome agent. With his help we’ve purchased two homes in Marin and sold one. He is dependable, steady, and easy to work with. We were able to sell our home for top dollar quickly with multiple offers. During the sale he stopped by frequently, keeping the flowers watered and the house looking fresh for potential buyers. Beat is well connected with local inspectors and was able to arrange inspections for our new home quickly, helping us fully understand the condition of our new home and negotiate fairly with the seller. Beat is the best and we are so grateful we were introduced to him.
Alexa Mayers, San Rafael, CA
I found Mr. Bossart to be a consumate professional - and also a gentleman in the classic meaning of that term. His approach and demeanor throughout were most appreciated. Beat leads authoritatively - from experience - but always with a light touch. 1- Upon his initial inspection of the property he laid out a marketing plan that proved to be a winner. (The house sold for $11,000 above the listed price!) 2-- He proactively addressed some potential inspection issues - right at the beginning - that turned out to be a godsend in significantly eliminating obsticles later on and thereby reducing the selling time interval. I recommend Beat unconditionally and ethusiastically.
