More Horror Stories 2

I swear, I didn’t intend to make this a daily post! This is fast becoming a Funky Foto Contest kind of thing.  I just can’t resist though when I hear these stories…and it seems I hear them every day! Yesterday a house on Hiller in Belmont looked at offers. This place is an 1190 sq […]

More Horror Stories

It really is pretty horrifying out there, that’s for sure. Seems like every day I’m hearing some new story that makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck. It’s simply amaing what’s going on out there right now. Every house I call on seems to have the same story, 20 disclosure packets […]

Funky Foto Contest Week 238

Drink anyone? This one may be a tad obscure. The question is…where in Foster City is this drinking fountain? If you’re first to answer that you’ll win a $30.00 gift card to Peets Coffee. Seriously, don’t you wish there was a Peets in FC? As usual, all the rules of the road are available to […]

There’s sure alot of grousing and complaining about how hot the market is and how competitive it is right now.

I looked at offers on a listing of […]

A Very Long Curve

I did something I’ve never done before…I surrendered to a salesperson’s pitch and agreed to be a “Premier Agent” in Foster City for Zillow. Oh, boy! I guess that means I pay them and they send me leads. I haven’t done this kind of client acquisition in about 20 years. Actually I NEVER did any […]

Through The Roof

I swear, for almost all of 2012 I went on and on about how wacky and hot the market was. What the heck did I know! If you bought a home last year and went over the asking price to get it…you probably stole the place! So far the 2013 market makes last years look […]
