Free Fallin’

“There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics” Mark Twain I got so excited about this post that I really feel like it needs musical accompaniment…so before you start digging in, go ahead and click the button below first. It’ll add to the enjoyment! On Tuesday afternoon I surfed through SFGate.com and […]

I was a little surprised at the response this week…I guess alot of us notice that stained glass. It’s, of course, the US Bank in Charter Square at the corner of Beach Park and Shell. Arriving first on the scene on Friday was Haber Tu of Foster City. Haber wins the $30.00 gift card to […]

Funky Foto Contest Week 19

I’ve always sort of marveled at stained glass, it really is an art form. I drive by this work all the time and always glance at it. I don’t think it’s anything famous or anything like that, but it’s pretty…and it’s nice to look at. If you read my post from yesterday your thinking “before […]

It’s Dead…Well, Maybe Not Quite!

Did you see any of the Halloween movies? The first one was a classic, done on a very small budget in 1978. At the end the bad guy, Michael Myers, get’s shot 6 times and falls from a second story balcony. Upon looking out the window we discover that Michael is nowhere to be found. […]

No Compromising…Sort Of

It occured to me while I was showing property over the weekend that maybe the best thing about this current market is the fact that buyers don’t have to compromise nearly as much as they used to. Fortunately, the old and wise rules about real estate investment have returned…and that’s a good thing! In the […]

Funky Foto Contest Winner Week 18

Yes, it was the dreaded Metro Center. When I was a kid, and I was out here visiting from Colorado, my uncle proudly told me that it was the tallest building between San Francisco and Los Angeles. Whether or not that was ever true…I have no idea. I did marvel at the time because of […]

Short Sales & Foreclosures

I saw this image online and just had to use it! I’m asked very frequently “What is a short sale?” so I thought I’d comment. Let’s say a seller has loans on their homes of $700,000, and that seller get’s behind on their payments and is forced to sell to get out from under the […]

Funky Foto Contest Week 18

Sort of looks like a Transformer, huh? Or maybe I’m just crazier than both you and I think I am.  In sort of a funny, Chamber of Commerce sort of way, it did transform Foster City when it was built. The question for you is…what is it? This weeks winner will receive $30.00 in gift […]
