Local Real Estate Expertise with a Global Reach: Engel & Völkers


A resident of Marin County since 1973 and raised in a family of successful Marin Realtors, Rod MacDougall provides the highest degree of professionalism and client care to his customers. With nearly two decades of real estate experience, he is a highly respected agent among his fellow colleagues, mortgage representatives, title company affiliates, and, especially, past clients. He enjoys assisting clients, whether buyers or sellers, in making their real estate transaction a smooth, pleasant, and rewarding process.

A graduate of U.C. Santa Cruz (Go Slugs!) in political science, he also earned a Secondary Educational Teaching Credential in social studies at Dominican University in San Rafael. Rod spent years as an educational instructor both domestically and abroad.

Following those years, he was a senior account manager for a not-for-profit "inbound," international, student-exchange organization. The skills acquired from past professional trades have led Rod to offer his clients both optimal guidance and superior negotiating skills on their behalf. He has extensive knowledge of residential real estate in Marin and Sonoma counties and has been a proud homeowner in Novato since 2003.

Rod's awards include Avalar Real Estate Service’s Rookie of the Year and, later, Bradley Real Estate's prestigious Executive and President's Club status over multiple years. He is also certified as a Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource (SFR) Specialist.
