A Prolonged Trend

2012 has sure been an amazing year in real estate. Unexpected. Crazy. Competitive. Illogical. These are just a few adjectives that come to mind when I think of this year so far. I have to admit, I have enjoyed being as busy as I’ve been so far this year. By the middle of June I […]

Funky Foto Contest Winner Week 203

Sure seems like Monday to me…these Holiday weekends always do it to me. Congratulations to Larissa Lindval who edged Bill Hastings on Friday and wins the $30.00 gift card to Jamba Juice for nailing the CVS store at the Metro Center as the loading dock pic from last week. Just those two were correct as […]

Now this week we’re getting a bit obscure…at least I think we are! This loading dock is in Foster City someplace…the question is where is this? Which store is it behind? If you’re first to answer that you’ll win a $30.00 gift card to Jamba Juice.  All the rules of the road are available to […]

Another One (2) Bites The Dust

Foster City sure is a tough place to run a restaurant it would seem. It sure is a difficult place to find a restaurant and it’s getting harder all the time too. Last week we had a couple more places run aground. One of them was the almost brand new Thai place that went into […]

There’s a well known real estate blogger in the mid west who wrote a post a week or so ago in which she disputed the use of the term “recovery” with regard to the real estate market. She really wasn’t being negative, it just doesn’t seem to fit with the reality of her market place. […]

Well, that was a pretty good turnout on Friday! Good job folks!

Also answering correctly was Jeff, Michael, Pak, Phoebe, Jim S, Nessa, Bill, […]

Funky Foto Contest Week 201

It’s such a gorgeous day today…and promises to be a hot one too, that I thought this shot of cool water would fit perfectly. This weeks question is a multiple choice one, name either the neighborhood across the water or the place just on the far left of the picture overhanging the water. If you’re […]

Somewhat Confusing

    Every week I have a number of clients that anxiously await the arrival of new listings on the market. That’s especially true so far in 2012 with the inventory being so amazingly low. Folks flock to open houses on new listings and multiple offer feeding frenzies occur quite frequently now a days. Sometimes places are in […]
