Meet Sylvie Zolezzi, Your Marin County REALTOR®
…Artfully connecting unique properties with extraordinary lives in Marin County…and around the world…
My parents were both Math teachers and from a very young age imparted their unwavering belief in the power of education to me.
Fast forward to 2016, my mantra continues to be that knowledge is power, but not any kind of knowledge. We are bombarded all day long by constant updates, news and commentary by self-proclaimed experts on about every single topic. Real estate is no exception: there is a lot of information about real estate in general available online, but our local Marin County market is very different from the national market, and the California market. It is paramount to be able to tune out this noise and evaluate our Marin market from an objective perspective. The only way it can happen is by becoming market literate–formulating our own educated opinion by tracking our Marin market, understanding what the numbers mean, and the reasons behind the trends. This is what I love to do.
When buying or selling a home, my market literacy and knowledge about our local Marin County market, absorption rates, best practices in multi media marketing, new technology, remodeling and interior design trends in Marin County helps me best serve my clients with all aspects of the home sale or purchase. My ability to share this totally relevant knowledge with sellers and buyers allows me to empower them to make smart, informed financial decisions.
So, if you are you thinking of buying or selling a home in Marin County, and you would like to work with someone who has the heart of a teacher–in addition to being a great negotiator and rock-star marketer–we might be a good match.
There are many excellent agents in Marin County. Which one should you hire to help you with what might be the most important financial transaction of your life? And the most significant for your lifestyle.
Interviewing several agents is always a good idea. Here are 12 questions to ask before hiring your REALTOR. I would love the opportunity to sit down with you to determine if we are a good match, and how I could best assist you, but in the meantime I am so happy you landed here. I could give you ten reasons why you should hire me, but wouldn’t you rather hear it from my clients? Here is what a client who bought and sold two homes with me recently wrote about me:
“…Sylvie is a remarkable person. With her warmth, honesty and intelligence in the numerator, her strength and energy in the denominator, she is an amazing number. I am indebted to her for her services above and beyond what I expected from a great realtor. I can recommend her without a reservation as a fantastic asset to any potential client.”

Throughout my career, I have been known for my high caliber performance, dedication to perfection, and strong work ethic. My business is built almost entirely on referrals from past clients and other agents, underscoring my commitment to excellence. I am currently an agent at Decker Bullock Sotheby’s International Realty, the premier residential real estate firm in Marin County.

I attract clients who demand excellence in marketing, negotiations and market insights. I have a strong affinity for modern, online marketing and social media opportunities that I combine with an old-school work ethic. I have an extensive following of clients and contacts on Facebook, and artfully use my website blog to promote listings and provide clients with current information about life and the real estate market in Marin. As mentioned above, I was recently featured as a Social Media All Star on Inman News, a national real estate news network.
As a French native who was raised in several countries, a seasoned world traveler and a 26-year resident of the Bay Area, I demonstrate an unparalleled sophistication and international flair that enables me to fully appreciate the different needs of my clients. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from the Université de Provence in Aix-en-Provence and a Master’s Degree from Columbia University in New York. I also studied Business Administration in the MBA program at Fordham University in New York.
In addition to my experience in real estate, I have worked in commercial and investment banking in both New York and San Francisco, human resources and have been the President of the Board of Directors of the Lycée Français LaPérouse. I strongly believe in giving back to the community and am currently serving on the Board of
I am as passionate about real estate as I am about Marin County’s unmatched lifestyle. In my spare time, I love spending time with my husband and two dogs, gourmet cooking, home decorating and hiking. I am an avid photographer and love to share my photos on my Marin County Facebook page, Pinterest and Instagram.
