What’s Next? VACATION time & East Bay Free Fun

LEO

August is the coolest month as far as I’m concerned.  Why? because this is my birth month (hurray for me!) and that’s great but better yet, in a few weeks we’re going on vacation.

We’re road-tripping up north, praying for rain just to feel it’s cool freshness on our skin; but the usual drippy-ness of northern climes are elusive this year.  The weather has been so hot the average river temperature is in the 60’s, which is very hard on spawning salmon.

The drought is hard on all of us on the Best Coast, so no matter what you do this summer, save water, pray for El Nino, and have fun!

For those of you staycationing, here’s some free fun for you for the month of August

I hope you’ll enjoy the rest of your summer, and remember to be sure to give me a call if you’re thinking of  buying or selling a home, and for any and all of your other real estate needs.  Just phone 510-527-0174 .  I’m never too busy to take care of you– or your referrals–and I’ll make sure you’re glad you called.

Get to know me! Check me out on facebook, linkedIn or see my other online presences. I have two sites made just for you.If you want to get a feel for what’s going on in the East Bay Real Estate market

Whatever your real estate need,  I’m happy to help!

What’s Next: Sun, Sand, and Free Bay Area Fun

Greetings from Santa Cruz

This week we’re taking a little vacation. We’re heading to Santa Cruz to take in some ocean views and the relaxing sound of the waves breaking on the beach.

It’s been a busy few months, and we need a bit of a recharge, a getaway from the seemingly endless duties of work and home.

Sometimes you have to have a change of scene, someplace away from your regular life where you can catch your breath and get some perspective; but if you can’t get away, there’s plenty to do right here in our beautiful Bay Area that can give you a new lease on life.

Here’s this week’s (April 28th to May 3rd) list of free fun in the East Bay and beyond.

TUESDAY APRIL 28TH
Learn water wise gardening in Oakland

WEDNESDAY APRIL 29TH
Learn how the Bay Area prepared for WWII

THURSDAY APRIL 30TH
See Sean Penn’s movie “The Human Experiment” in Berkeley

FRIDAY MAY 1ST (HAPPY MAY DAY)
Free films and snacks at the Hotel Durant’s flash back Friday

Have a terrific week enjoying the marvelous Bay Area.  I’ll be back soon to do the same.

One a Day Fun in the Bay Area


A Father’s Day Treat


As most of you know who are regular readers of this blog, I’m a big WWII history buff. That’s why I was delighted to learn that the USS Hornet berthed right here in Alameda is having a “Living Ship Day” on Father’s Day, June 15th. There will be a $10 BBQ, a free magic show, and a band performance. Living Ship Days demonstrate what it was like to go to sea on an aircraft carrier.

For those days before Father’s Day, here are some fun, FREE and CHEAP activity suggestions.

TUESDAY JUNE 10TH
Art, live jazz and snacks from the Doug Adams Gallery in Berkeley 

WEDNESDAY JUNE 11TH
Free guided walking tours of Jack London Square & Downtown Oakland

THURSDAY JUNE 12TH
5$ Thursdays at the Asian Art Museum

FRIDAY JUNE 13TH
Free fireworks after the Giants Game at AT&T Park

SATURDAY JUNE 14TH
SUNDAY JUNE 15TH
FATHERS DAY!!

And to all you Dads out there, have a happy Father’s Day!

Whether you’re moving in or out of this amazing Bay Area, I’d be honored to help. 

For SELLERS, I’ll help you prepare and market your home for sale that will give it the widest appeal and best exposure; thus attracting a bevy of buyers and the best chance for multiple offers and competitive bidding. To learn more, go to go to What’s Next Homes.

For BUYERS I’ll set up an REAlert account that will search the MLS real estate site–using requirements that you provide–for properties that meet your needs.  Once found, pictures and details will be delivered directly to your email courtesy of Coldwell Banker! 

It’s the best way for you to get a look at first-time-on-the-market properties; which saves you wasted time and the disappointment when you find the perfect home but discover it’s already been sold. This is a common occurance when using the usual home finding sites like Trulio, Zillow, etc.  They are fun to search, but their information is often out of date. Not so with REAlert.

If you’re specifically interested in high walk score homes, click here to find those that are currently on the market in great East Bay neighborhoods. To learn more, go to go to That House Detective

Or, just give me a call at 510-527-0174.
