THE SECOND STORY | February 24th, 2012

Before and on the way to after…

Blog photo:  My neighbor is taking off the stucco from his old Victorian.  It will be done in pieces and the first thing to go is the stucco around the porch.  Gosh, first the 90′ tree is gone, and now the porch!  Stay tuned for more.

ALAMEDA REAL ESTATE THIS WEEK…
Inventory…some Gold Coast homes are hitting the market!  And more to come in the next few weeks.  This is a nice turn of events for those who have been waiting a long time.

I have a question for you.  How do you handle the question posed by ‘not local’ residents – ‘Earthquakes…Alameda will fall into the ocean (yes I mean ocean, not bay)?’  I’ll share my own answer next week.  If any of you wish to shoot me an email, I’d love to hear what you’d say to that.   

And NOT Alameda Real Estate This Week….And speaking of earthquakes…my daughter, Sutter, and her husband Sean, bought a lot (there’s another name for it in New Zealand-ese) in the hills above Christchurch, with a fabulous water view and a clear geo-report re: earthquakes!  They closed on it this week.  That’s a commitment to NZ and for them!  Here, here!

I arrived in Alameda in 1973, as a new bride...with husband Carl Schumacher, both of us from Newport Beach. He was embarking on his career as a Naval Architect (i.e. yacht designer) under Gary Mull. Please see the 'ABOUT ME' page in this website! www.MarilynSchumacher.com to see how it has all turned out! I'm so blessed!
