About Judy Berger

Hello.... My name is Judy and I'm the owner of "Casa Olivia." I moved here a bit over 3 years ago from nearby Mill Valley, after retiring from a career in health care and leadership education. I have an "encore career" as a professional singer with a vintage vocal jazz trio. I also travel internationally and do service learning projects in developing countries around the world. I am renting out my home when I am away.

Judy Berger purchased this house in 2013

Why Judy Berger chose Fairfax

"Casa Olivia" is my dream home, cozy and charming, colorful, sunny and green. I love the front and back gardens and multiple flowering and fruiting bushes and trees. It's pleasant and warm here year round. Perfect weather for people who love the outdoors.

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with the graceful arches and Mediterranean feel of this home, which was built in 1927 by an Italian family. It's a place where you can relax inside and out and also be near lots of interesting things to see and do. I think you'll fall in love with it too!
