A New York State Of Mind

Once again, a little off topic…but I can’t resist. After baseball’s all star game this summer it dawned on me that venerable Yankee Stadium was going to be torn down at the end of the season this year and I’ve never been there. The temptation was too great, so I and my friend and client […]

Funky Foto Contest Week 24

OK, so last week was pretty obscure…and pretty hard too! This week should be a tad easier. Maybe? This project was one of the first in Foster City and seems to get a lot a press whenever this town is depicted promotionally. The question is…what is the name of this development? This weeks winner will […]

Peaks & Valleys

It’s the quintessential descriptive term for the Foster City market this year…peaks and valleys! Lot’s of homes sell, and then nothing sells. It’s been a kooky little cycle to say the least. Right now the inventory of single family homes is down to 20 with a total of 17 pending sales…a pretty good ratio. Of […]

Life In The Trenches

I don’t know, I somehow can’t resist a photo that has a connection with food. Call me zany…I had all these trench photos and I liked this one best. Alot of my posts are simply my observations about the local real estate market and about Foster City specifically. I really do want to identify these comments as […]

Funky Foto Contest Winner Week 23

Just when I thought this was going to be the  week for sure…we had a winner! I have to admit, that this one was really pretty hard too! The photo is, of course, the sign for the Beach Park Plaza shopping area at the corner of Beach Park and Marlin. This weeks winner is a […]

Location, Location, Location

That sure is a tired old saw, isn’t it? Supposedly, the three most important elements of real estate investment. One of those beaten to death old phrases that causes a smile on everyone’s face because it’s been around so long and is so familiar. It’s such an old fashioned phrase that it got completely taken […]

Funky Foto Contest Week 23

Since the last 2 weeks foto contests were so embarrasingly easy (or so I heard from both Lydia and my wife Lesley!) I thought I’d raise the bar a bit this week. Today’s foto comes again from the wandering eye and camera of none other than the City of Foster City’s own Steve Toler. Thanks Steve! All […]

Who Do You Love?

Since I got the ball rolling musically with that Tom Petty Free Fallin post on July 31 I figured it was time for another post with musical accompaniment. I can’t think of anybody more appropriately paired for a Real Estate technology discussion than…George Thorogood! Just click the little button below to add to your reading enjoyment: […]

Funky Foto Contest Winner Week 22

Well, I think it’s safe to say that Friday’s contest was just a tad bit too easy! I actually thought it was going to be a little obscure! For the small percentage of you that were unaware…Friday’s Foto was the seating area for the outdoor amphitheater at Leo Ryan Park. Thanks go to Patrick Au-Yueng […]
