Our Story Of Where We Came From

“It’s not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change.” –Charles Darwin
Clarin Realty was founded 2010 by Noreleen Clarin de Mesa. For the past 8 years Noreleen worked as a Realtor. The first 5 years was with Coldwell Banker Peninsula where she gained her expertise and foundation for Real Estate. As the market shifted, Noreleen innovated her business and moved to a smaller company that focused on pre-foreclosure and foreclosure properties. She then received her Broker’s license and opened Clarin Realty.
Noreleen earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of California at Santa Cruz.  Prior to Real Estate, Noreleen worked as a Financial Consultant partnering with those who want to accomplish their financial goals. Soon thereafter, she worked in the Social Services industry and established relationships with local church organizations to coordinate the "Elk Grove Clothes Closet"  where families in need can come collect clothing for "Welfare to Work" or "Back to School" clothing for the whole family.  She is a mom of an active 5 year old and a 3 year old and currently resides in San Francisco.
Since immigrating from the Philippines at the age of 7 to San Francisco and coming from hardworking parents who sacrifice everything they have for the sake of their children---Noreleen and her family have always lived with other families in apartments and inlaws for affordability. Her parents bought their first home when Noreleen was in High School and that’s when home buying and home ownership started making its way into her subconscious up until she bought her own first home.  Everyone should be able to take advantage of owning a home and investments. It is an integral part of financial planning and independence.
“In the perspective if every person lies a lens through which we may better understand ourselves.” Ellen J. Langer, author of Mindfulness
