About Marin County Realtor Lydia Treadway

Lydia loves her work as a Marin County Realtor. It allows her to meet many nice people who become friends as well as continuing clients. What makes her a success in this profession? To answer this we must go back in time and look at the influences that make Lydia unique, a one-of-a kind person.

Lydia Found My Perfect Home

I had a list of requirements, very specific, that I presented to Lydia. In two days she called with literally the perfect property. Someone else's offer had been accepted before I could bid on it. However, Lydia then went on to pepper the neighborhood with flyers and contacted the owners to see if anyone else might be interested in selling. She turned up two options, one of which I now own. I feel that Lydia 'solicited' the perfect home for me. If not for her very pro-active effort, I would not be where I am today. It was the only time a realtor had gone beyond looking at the MLS book or computer screen for me.

Eleanor A. M.


She comes from Dubrovnik, Croatia, a beautiful part of the world on the Adriatic Sea across from Italy. It is an ancient city that has had influence from the Romans, Venice, Napoleon, and many cross currents of history. This left a mix of cultures and languages. In her early adult years she moved to Paris, then Cape Cod, San Francisco, Bahrain, London, Nashville, and then Marin County. These places brought her many interesting experiences including antiquing, interior decoration, and the restoration of an old Victorian home in South Kensington. Nashville gave her the enjoyment of country music and horses. Art continued to be her passion since childhood and she continued to paint in all these places. Lydia knows a lot about architecture and building. Her father was a master mason and contractor. She learned about quality workmanship very early in life and now can do many building projects herself. Recently she did the tile in both bathrooms and a stone floor in the family room.

Lydia’s education includes a Master of Fine Arts degree from the San Francisco Art Institute. She is a painter and owned an Art Gallery in San Anselmo. She was founder and Chairman of the San Anselmo Art Commission. Lydia was responsible for establishing an Annual Student Art Festival for all the children in Ross Valley. We helped raise scholarship funds for High School graduates in the arts and all children who entered the Festival got prizes and recognition. After this work, Lydia served on the Board of Directors for San Domenico private school. She is Vice President for the Marin Rose Society and grows beautiful roses for show. Gardening is an artistic endeavor and brings beauty inside the home with cut flowers and arrangements. We urge you to join the Marin Art and Garden Center and the Marin Rose Society for lots of fun and a wonderful education on roses. Lydia is a Consulting Rosarian for the American Rose Society and is happy to answer your questions on rose culture. Give her a call or email. This is a free service!

Lydia is a mother with two sons, and her husband has his three children. Raising five children under one roof as a blended family has been a challenge! We are so glad to see the kids prosper now as independent successful adults. They attended universities from Oregon to Yale, St. Mary’s to UC Berkeley, and the US Naval Academy. They live all over the US from coast to coast and one son still has tours in Iraq and the Middle East with the military.

Lydia’s husband, Frank, is very involved in assisting her Real Estate work. He is a “retired” child psychologist who does the work in the office, keeps the emails flowing and the web site current. This is a team effort and you may have occasion to communicate with Frank. We usually can get the support and information you need to move ahead on your deal quickly because we work together and can respond right away.

Frank and Lydia team together in the Rose and vegetable garden too! They both enjoy good cooking and wine tasting shared with friends. Trout fishing is another passion and we take trips to different lakes and streams in the mountains of California, Oregon and Nevada.

This is a very brief sketch of Lydia’s background. We have some photos to show you who we are. Give us a call and let’s meet and work together. We enjoy helping people find a home or sell and discover their own new adventures!
