Buying or Selling a Home with the Shelter in Place

Buying or Selling a Home with the Shelter in Place

Hello, everyone – As I write this, a month into the SIP (Shelter in Place) it appears that our efforts in the East Bay Area are finally starting to pay off. This has been harrowing, profound and to say the least, inspiring of deep retrospection. The irony of my role as the conduit by which people […]

A Note from one of our top agents- Sarah Ridge

A Note from one of our top agents- Sarah Ridge

I credit my husband, in part, for my success as a Realtor. Over our 26 years together he has downloaded the knowledge he has gained (sometimes I’ve been a willing audience, others times, not so much) as a master framer, roof framer and concrete former. Here in the East Bay Area, our housing stock is […]

1910 Yosemite Ave is a stunning mid-century modern in the Thousand Oaks neighborhood of Berkeley listed by Anna Bellomo. When researching the architect’s name from the building permits, she found out the name of the architect was A. Steiner.

Below is a recent letter written by one of our top agents, Sarah Ridge. She loves to keep in touch with her clients through quarterly newsletters. We have such unique inventory here in the East Bay.

It is not an extravagant structure of short-lived fashion, no glass panels instead of solidly insulated walls, no “outdoor living” for lack of indoor comfort, no barn like batted lumber and plywood siding, but outer and […]
