Funky Foto Contest Week 263

Last week stumped everyone…how will we do this week is the question? Still have that Chevy’s gift card…can you get it this week? The question is…what townhouse project is pictured above? If you’re first to answer that you’ll win. As usual, all the rules of the road are available to view on the left hand […]

Anatomy of a Listing

I have to say, I really love having listings. This year especially, but it’s always a challenging and interesting thing to do. Creating the marketing and setting the stage for a home’s run on the market is a great experience and it can’t be understated that preparation is a HUGE part of successfully selling a […]

  I knew this was going to be a good one! Thanks again to Bill Hastings for providing a winner that stumped everybody. The pic on Friday was of the new Veterans Memorial in Leo Ryan Park right behind the band shell. Very cool, huh? Maybenext time? Or this Friday? See you then….     […]

Random Real Estate

Just some random thoughts from the last few days;   One of my agent friends gets 10 offers on a listing of hers in San Mateo. All of them wildly good and it ends up selling for $202,000 over asking. She also gets a verbal offer from a guy. She tells him she needs the […]

You bet! It’s the Welcome to Foster City sign on Hillsdale that was in Friday’s pic. Congratulations to Ellen Hoogeveen who arrived first and wins the Peet’s gift card! Also answering correctly was Dave Lin, Janny Lee, J Kwan, Dana Ferri, and Lilian Lee. Great awareness folks! Thanks for playing…see you again this Friday.

Funky Foto Contest Week 261

Well, this symbol is not exactly unusual in Foster City now is it, but the question is where exactly is this particular logo? If you’re first to tell me that you’ll win a $30.00 gift card to Peet’s Coffee. As usual, all the rules of the road are available to view on the left hand margin […]

The Low End

The low end in local Real Estate…what a funny idea. Who knows what it is? It’s certainly different from town to town around here too. In the last week or so I’ve seen a few houses NOT get multiple offers, or any offers for that matter, that would have month ago. Even in San Carlos […]

Funky Foto Contest Winner Week 260

Well, the little technical problem we had on Friday only allowed for one correct answer…either that or the pic was just difficult! At any rate, congratulations to Shruti Singh who arrived correctly and won the $30.00 gift card to Kobe Japanese Food! Hopefully next week we have no challenges. Thanks for playing folks! See you […]
