Happy Anniversary!

Yesterday was a milestone, it marked the 1 year anniversary of FosterCityBlog! During that time we’ve seen over 78,000 hits from 89 countries. I can’t tell you how much fun it’s been to do this blog…maybe as much fun as anything I’ve done in Real Estate. It’s just a blast! Many thanks to all of […]

Funky Foto Contest Week 41

I actually used this pic a week ago in the photo montage I did and the great and powerful Mr. Toler e-mailed and asked why it wasn’t a Funky Foto. He was, of course, correct…it’s a perfect one! The question is, where is this hole? This weeks winner receives a $30.00 gift card to Noahs Bagels […]

Paint Your Wagon (Or Interior Walls)

In yet another example of the wonderful world of technology and it’s applications to real estate, I ran across some websites that can be very helpful when contemplating painting a home. One of the big challenges anymore when painting is choosing from an enormous selection of colors! It’s really kind of unbelieveable as you can […]


The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines Oscillation as ” a single swing (as of an oscillating body) from one extreme limit to the other”. Below you’ll find a great example from our current, and kooky 2009 Real Estate market. This house, located at 3046 Del Monte in San Mateo, came on the market in September of 2004 […]

Funky Foto Contest Winner Week 40

It was a tad bit harder this week…but not for our winner, Alex Ousherovich who nailed it early. It being the sculpture at Killdeer Park. Alex’s keen eye earns him a $30.00 gift card to Diamond Harbor Seafood at Edgewater Place. Great job Alex! Also coming in with the correct answer were Linda, Kali, Jeff […]

The Dog Ate My Homework

The truth is…I didn’t have time to go shoot Parks pictures this week. Thus here are some great shots Lesley took in the last several months that I’ve always wanted to use. I’m glad to be able to publish them.

Funky Foto Contest Week 40

Now, this week should be a little harder…I think. The question is, where is this thing? A general description of what it is wouldn’t hurt either. (How’s that for painting with a broad brush?) This weeks winner receives $30.00 worth of gift cards to one of Foster City’s newest restaurants…Diamond Harbor Seafood Restaurant in Edgewater […]

Avoiding The Trap

In the almost 20 years since I’ve been a realtor, there’s one phenomenon that I seem to see happen over and over again. It goes something like this…The  Jones’s decide they want a bigger, nicer, better, smaller…whatever home. They then start looking, both online as well as at weekend Open Houses. It’s at that point […]

Time Stands Still

So I was thinking about writing a post this morning about contingency offers, either that or about the construction project at Foster City School, and I stopped for a minute and thought..WHO CARES! Not today at least! What an amazing day this is! Congratulations to the Obamas and the Bidens, and most of all congratulations […]

Manoj wins the $30.00 gift certificate to Waterfront Pizza. Also arriving with the correct answer was Dana, Kali, Ryan, Asif, Craig, Bill, Trisha, […]
