Offer Presentation

        The second question that came up from a reader (same reader actually) asked the following: “We are selling our house. What is the advantage and disadvantage of having the buyers agent submitting the offer in person as compared to just the written offer?” My answer to that is simply, how much […]

Both Ends

I have this little link here on the blog that says “Ask me something, I know stuff”. Sometimes I even do! Technology, on the other hand can sometimes baffle me and when somebody asks a question there I’m supposed to get an e-mail. I just discovered that I haven’t been. Oops! Anyway, a seller in […]

Island J

You know that place, right? It’s sort of the signature townhouse community in Foster City located across the water from Leo Ryan Park and the Metro Center.
