"Arrive Marin recognizes that a real estate transaction is just one element of a successful relocation."

Two women are putting a new spin on an old challenge, relocating to Marin Country, California. Accomplished entrepreneurs Kate McMillan and Mary McFadden have launched an innovative new business designed to lessen the shock of resettling young families. Arrive Marin recognizes that a real estate transaction is just one element of a successful relocation and has developed tools to help buyers determine the ideal neighborhood for their families.

Co-Founder Kate McMillan commented, “Market research demonstrates that family dissatisfaction is the leading cause of failed corporate relocations; a costly and disruptive outcome.  Arrive Marin seeks to lessen the heavy burden placed on children and spouses to establish new connections in their adopted communities.”

Writing on the impact of relocations on families, Dr. Joseph Gasper of Johns Hopkins University has noted, “…breaking social ties and disrupting the home environment creates psychological stress for adolescents and deprives both families and young people of the resources that established social connections bring.” He concluded, “Research on mental health and developmental psychology has long emphasized how residential mobility is associated with negative adjustment … in short, previous work points to moving as a significant negative event in the lives of young people.”

Co-Founder Mary McFadden continued, “The Arrive Marin team recognizes that the job is done when you find your community, not when a closing occurs.”  Mary added, “Arrive Marin is very pleased to be partnered with Pacific Union, the region’s largest real estate firm.”
