Funky Foto Contest Winner Week 142

Great job folks! It was somewhat amusing though to see that answer about it being in downtown San Jose. Now, THAT would be interesting! Me running around the Bay Area taking obscure photos that you would have to guess. How about a fire hydrant in Milpitas? I’m thinking not… Anyway, congratulations to Bill Hastings who […]

Funky Foto Contest Week 142

What better to show on a day like today but water? Maybe snow…but I’m still thinking not on that one. This weeks question…where exactly is this water? If you’re first to tell me that you’ll win a $30.00 gift card to Starbucks.  All the rules of the road are available to view on the left hand margin […]

How Much?

Now a dollar figure has been attached to building a 4th elementary school in Foster City. That number is 40 million.

Haves and Have Nots

Funky Foto Contest Week 141

No, it’s not my deck. It’s also not a part of any of the homes currently for sale in Foster City. It is, however, a deck that lots of us walk on all the time. This weeks question….where is this deck? If you’re first to answer this you’ll win a $30.00 gift card to Baja Fresh. […]

It’s Back…Again!

I swear…this is a really confusing subject. Maybe I’m just dumb. It would appear that FEMA has, in fact, released the dreaded flood map that will require folks around here to buy flood insurance. Except…maybe not. According to the San Mateo Daily Journal, Foster City residents will be required to buy flood insurance as a result […]

Cost Per Square Feet

It seems to me that in the last few years I’ve worked with a lot of clients who have placed a great deal of faith in cost per square foot analysis when it comes to determining the value of a given property. That’s not too big of a surprise given the experience we all went […]
