SIX SPECIAL BAY AREA EVENTS THIS WEEK

1681822-poster-1280-peach-tree

Greetings to Summer!

Most of us work year round, and if you work for yourself, it can feel like the days, and even the seasons, flow one into the other with no real differentiation other than wardrobe choices.

But there is something about summer.  Everything seems to slow down.  The longer days provide the illusion of more time. We CAN do a full day’s work and still enjoy a walk by the bay–with the added benefit of a jaw-dropping sunset. Mornings are bright with light and birdsong. Afternoons seem still and calm. Siesta time! Summer time, and, of course, The Fourth of July!

And Summer is the most evocative of seasons. Childhood memories of good times are as plentiful and sweet as peaches on the trees, so I say let’s create some summer memories as adults.  Here’s this weeks list:

TUESDAY JUNE 28TH
Funk Jam at the Ivy Room

WEDNESDAY JUNE 29TH
Free admission to the Alameda County Fair

THURSDAY JUNE 30TH
Off the grid camping at the Presidio

FRIDAY JULY 1ST
Free Summer circus in Oakland

SATURDAY JULY 2ND
Free Theater: Final Night at Theater Rhinoceros

SUNDAY JULY 3RD
World One Festival in El Cerrito

And have a fantastic, safe, Fourth of July!

If you’re looking to buy or sell an East Bay home, I can help.
If you’re moving to another area, I can refer you to a trustworthy Coldwell Banker agent wherever you want or need to go in the US or the world. Coldwell Banker is an international real estate company.
 

So call me.  I’m easy to get a hold of.  As so many of us do, I carry my office with me wherever I go, so phone or text 510-418-1306  and you’ll probably reach me. 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 or linkedIn.

Six Special Bay Area Events this Week

These last weekends have been busy for me.  I’ve been holding my new listing in Kensington open.  Holding an Open House is like having a little party. No food, or alcohol to break the ice, but no shortage of topics of conversation. I’ve discussed the local schools  & neighborhood, flow of traffic, commuting convenience, walk score, recreational opportunities and more. Sometimes these questions aren’t easy to answer if the answers are, well, not so great; but this house, with so many positives, is really fun to talk about.

If you’re free this next weekend, stop on by and check it out. For the other days of the week, here’s a list of some fun events and activities:

TUESDAY APRIL 19TH

Six Special Bay Area Events This Week, NO FOOLIN’!

Berkeley Botanical Garden

March is going out like the proverbial lamb after a rainy, leonine beginning.  El Nino did much of what was promised. The flowers abound, bringing cheerful bursts of color to the hillsides (and local gardens), the reservoirs are filling up, and the snow levels near Lake Tahoe are pretty much where they should be.

Still, we need to conserve our water reserves just in case, but for now let’s celebrate the joy of the season with some special Spring activities.

Here’s this weeks list of activities around the Bay Area.

TUESDAY MARCH 29TH
If you love poetry, imagery, and activism, head to Oakland

WEDNESDAY MARCH 30TH
Herons: find out more about these beautiful birds at Stow Lake

THURSDAY MARCH 31ST
Mama’s Royal Cafe Annual Napkin Art contest

FRIDAY APRIL 1ST

LOVING THE EAST BAY ON VALENTINE’S DAY

two-hearts-and-flowers-871297272347uFI

There’s a lot to love in the Bay Area, and judging by the crowds at the recent open houses, a LOT of people are recognizing the desirability of living in the Bay Area. To find out what folks other than myself are saying about this terrific area, and in honor of Valentine’s Day, I googled “Things to love about the Bay Area” and I got a photo gallery, some city related sites like “35 reasons to move to Oakland“, “Why I love Richmond California“, and one called “26 things the Bay Area does right” (certainly there’s more than that!)

Among the many things I love about the Bay Area are the unique and/or multi-cultural ways to celebrate almost any holiday. Here’s a short list of activities that could add some all-important spice and variety to your Valentine’s Day if you’re tired of the traditional hearts and flowers.

Whatever you end up doing, I hope you enjoy yourself in our beautiful Bay Area and that your Valentine’s Day everything you hope it will be!

Join my team if you’re looking to buy or sell an East Bay home!

Whatever your real estate need, Call me if you’d like to buy or sell a home in the East Bay. I’m easy to contact.  As so many of us do, I carry my office with me wherever I go, so phone 510-527-0174.  and you’ll probably reach me. I’m never too busy to take care of you– or your referrals–and I’ll make sure you’re glad you called.

There’s No Place Like Home

grizzly peak view

Last week the wife and I took a trip to Monterey.  All the way down we saw the effects of the drought on the stressed trees and other flora from our Bay Area to the other one.  It was a relief when the ocean rolled into view and flowed beside us as we drove south.  Water, even salty water, is a welcome sight in these parched times.

Since we were in the neighborhood, we decided to take in the 17 Mile drive.  Big homes, big views, big, green golf courses, all for a $10 entry fee; yet I thought to myself as I followed the twists and turns of that famous road that Wildcat Canyon and Grizzly Peak were every bit as beautiful.

Once again I realized we live in a wonderful area full of other rich benefits.  It’s ethnically diverse and actively encouraging that diversity,  it’s esthetically diverse with fields, forests, big cities and quiet hamlets, and it’s culturally diverse with world class theater, terrific art, and great restaurants all in easy reach.

Monterey is terrific, and we enjoyed our stay, but there truly is no place like home when you live in the Bay Area. Best of all, every week there’s something new and different to do. Let’s take a look at what’s happening here this week:

TUESDAY OCTOBER 13
Litquake in Yerba Buena Gardens

WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 14
Drum for Rain in Walnut Creek

THURSDAY OCTOBER 15
Relax and enjoy music by the bay at Jack London Square

FRIDAY OCTOBER 16
Computer History Museum Geeky Block Party

SATURDAY OCTOBER 17
Pumpkin Fest at Half Moon Bay

SUNDAY OCTOBER 18
Salsa Sundays every third Sunday in Berkeley 

Enjoy yourselves this week, and give me a call if you’re wanting to sell or buy a home in the East Bay.

I’m easy to contact.  As so many of us do, I carry my office with me wherever I go, so phone 510-527-0174.  and you’ll probably reach me. I’m never too busy to take care of you– or your referrals–and I’ll make sure you’re glad you called.
