OK, I realize I’ve sort of abandoned the whole real estate concept lately, but Holy Cow!…have the Giants been fun and amazing! I went to the game last night…without a doubt it was the most incredible sporting experience I’ve ever had. I’ve been to numerous NFL playoff games, a couple of conference championship games, a […]


My friend, and fellow blogger,  Chuck Gillooley with Alain Pinel sent me this interesting article about the passing of one of Foster City’s founders, Bob Foster. Mr. Foster passed away on the 1st of October at his home in Virginia at the age of 78. I’m sure plenty of people are unaware of the history […]
