Holmes Burrell Real Estate was inspired by the need for a new type of real estate brokerage. 
Our primary objective is to create life-long relationships with our clients while helping 
navigate the nuances of today’s real estate market. Many of the technologies we have in 
place are proprietary, and unparalleled. Our model could only be born from traditional 
values, inspired by the needs of our clients, and carried on the back of those cutting edge 
technologies. We are enthusiastic about offering superior client services, the service you 
deserve, the service you should come to expect.
Our agents do not compete for business, they support each other to insure that you are always 
receiving the attention you need. Real estate agents are independent contractors, but that’s 
where we differ from the larger brokerages. Our Realtors respect each others business, and want 
each client to be successful. Your success is paramount to ours.

Holmes Burrell has leveraged the power of the internet in a way no other brokerage can, 
that allows us to offer the highest level of exposure that can be found in the industry. Our systems are 
exclusive to Holmes Burrell, licensed to us only, and no other brokerage can say that. No matter 
where your home is physically located, we will have it on the front page of every buyers search engine. 

With our offices around Marin, we have strong family roots. We offer you the most local perspective. We know the trails, the waters, 
commutes, farmers markets, just ask, we are happy to share our local experience. 

Our online tools allow us to carry our offices everywhere we go. We have teams and systems in place to make each transaction a fluid one. 
Whether you need to sign while at work, or while out of town, we know how to get the job done.

Broker, CEO

DRE# 01355552

Jason Holmes About Jason Holmes I have been selling and listing real estate for over a decade in the North Bay, and I’m proud to consistently fall in the top 1% of all Marin Agents. I own and operate Holmes-Burrell Real Estate, a business I’ve grown to leverage smart technology in a way that no other agency can claim. And over the years I’ve developed an enormous network by doing solid, honest work with great people. With my company’s unique strategy to make the most of both technology and relationships, I’ve helped hundreds of clients find and sell their homes. I simply love real estate and it shows in the work I do and the dedication I display day in and day out – seven days a week. My Approach My approach is simple: At all times I operate with the utmost integrity and professionalism, remembering that my practice is client-centered and client-driven. In my experience as a real estate professional, I've always found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to my clients’ needs. In short, I take care of my clients like they are family members. Since I am consistently in the top tier of all sales agents in Marin and Sonoma, I don't need any one deal. What I do need are happy clients who love their homes. I strive to help clients find their perfect home, and I make sure that they are completely informed before they make any decision. Sales Strategy I provide my clients with best-in-industry service, thorough market knowledge, innovative marketing techniques, and solid sales strategy to promote all of my listed properties. My team comprises not only talented, licensed agents, but also seasoned internet, database marketing, advertising, graphic design, marketing, photography and public relations professionals – all of whom work together to ensure every property I represent garners the attention and sale price it deserves. Knowledge I offer the highest level of residential real estate savvy, extensive experience and intensive knowledge about North Bay neighborhoods, schools and trails. My years of experience have given me a complete understanding of the real estate process and strong contract negotiation skills. I have a vast network of vendors, including contractors, tile guys, electricians, movers, etc. When you need something in the world of real estate...I am the one to call. On a personal note I live in the North Bay with my wife and three daughters. I’m very active in the community and in my kids’ lives, coaching boys’ and girls’ club tee-ball and local youth soccer, volunteering in the classroom at my daughters’ elementary school, and heading up the board at my youngest daughter's nonprofit preschool. I’m also an avid cyclist – which is why I know every trail in Marin County – and I love tennis. In fact, my wife and I captain the mixed doubles team at our local tennis club. While I love sports, playing with my girls is my favorite activity – they are my pride and joy.

Stefan Schermerhorn

Real Estate Professional

DRE# 01880641

I have two passions. Real estate. And music. Put them together and you have an agent who knows homes, and knows how to make them sing. Here’s why. I got into real estate on the ground floor—literally. Thanks to over six years of hands-on experience training with a master/builder and electrician, I learned every aspect of construction—from foundation to finish. I know homes. Inside and out. And that’s to your advantage. Whether you want to ready your house for market, inspect a home prior to purchase, or make improvements once you’ve bought your home, I can make it happen—fast. I work closely with a talented team of professionals including two builder/contractors, a plumber, electrician, roofer, home inspector, termite inspector, structural engineer, architect, draftsman, interior designer, insurance agent, and a landscape architect. In addition to my extensive background in construction, I also bring a keen aesthetic sense to the table. After all, I grew up surrounded by music. My mother is an operatic soprano and my father was a distinguished symphony conductor. I had a lucrative career in music as well, singing opera and playing chamber music around the world. Music taught me to listen and to communicate at a deeper level. I’m a sharp negotiator; devoted to helping my clients realize the best possible outcomes. FOR FUN I still continue to sing, compose music for piano and voice and perform in regional productions. I also surf, mountain bike, enjoy time with my two young sons, and seek out exciting places to dine with friends.

I am a lifelong Marin County resident whose family has been in San Francisco for six generations. My wife Anne and I were both born and raised in Marin and still live in our first home in San Anselmo. I vividly remember – it was 1988 - an aggressive sellers’ market. Working with positive professionals was key in helping us get into our home. I’ve been a Real Estate Agent for over 7 years and enjoys a growing business in our competitive real estate market. With my long history and knowledge of Marin, and personal relationships with industry professionals, I’ve created a team that can get your home ready for market and sold at top dollar - without compromising anyone’s integrity. I also have a particular gift for working with seniors and empty nesters who are downsizing. I have guided clients as well as three sets of parents through this major life transition. My background includes 30 years in the financial industry in San Francisco, including operating a family stock and options business at the former Pacific Stock Exchange, serving on self-regulatory exchange committees and boards, senior management for Newedge USA, and was elected and served 2 terms on the NYSE Exchange’s Board of Directors. I tend a beautiful garden filled with roses and fruit trees and have extensive knowledge of the hiking and biking trails on and around our beloved Mount Tam. I enjoy community building projects which includes taking a group of students to Mexico to build homes every year for less fortunate Families. I make a mean margarita and often referred to as the “Commodore” for his amazing prowess with my Weber BBQ. I am proud to call Marin County my home and I welcome the opportunity to work with you. “Why would you want to live anywhere else?”- GN

Lucas Meyer


DRE# 01961060

Moving forward in his career working with Holmes Burrell Real Estate, Lucas is excited to continue sharing his passion for helping others. He is driven to share his passion by using his prior philanthropic experiences, a background in construction, and his love for the area he has found to live and raise his family. A native of Minnesota, Lucas had the good fortune to be raised by parents who encouraged travel, music, art, sports and giving back to the community. Spending some of his early years in Germany and exploring Europe formed a life-long love of the outdoors and a natural curiosity of the larger world. This led to working as a mentor and as a volunteer for an NGO program in Bangkok, as well as teaching ESL to adults in Minnesota. Community involvement by helping and knowing others is second nature to Lucas. Carpentry and construction have always been a passion from a young age, and Lucas has honed those skills by working for high end builders in Truckee, as well as working in property management and appraisal management. While the extensive outdoor opportunities of Truckee were enriching, Lucas chose to move to even more appealing Marin County to enjoy the unique lifestyle combination of incredible open space, proximity to San Francisco, fantastic schools and superb community. A proud father of two young boys, Marin is where Lucas has chosen to settle and raise his young family. Lucas has remodeled two of his own homes here, and has the perspective and knowledge to expertly guide buyers and sellers in the right direction, especially when it comes to questions about property condition or potential changes to a home. Furthermore, his real estate background enhances his ability to advise clients on homes as a significant financial investment.
