Alameda…on the estuary….

Ah, it’s getting darker earlier.  When I could ride home at 8:45pm in dusk, it’s now super dark.   This is a photo of the Alameda Marina, in silhouette, with masts all around it, about this time of year.

It’s been kind of quiet in town this week.  Kids are back in school (and the high schools are flooding the town at lunch time!), soccer is on, kids are running cross country.  But this weekend is a holiday so Monday is off, and everybody is back on vaca once again.

Quick Glimpses – Here’s how important photos are of the properties in the mls or on website!  But you know that already!

Broker Tour Tues  only 5 on the tour, and I’d seen two of them.  But the tour is loaded up this next Tuesday, based on what we see!

ALAMEDA REAL ESTATE AWARDS THIS WEEK….remember this is only my perspective!
Not this week…not too much to choose from…more next week!

Have a great 3 day weekend, if you are lucky to get off the whole time!  I’ll be working and getting ready to put another house on the market on Monday for Tuesday’s Broker Tour.

Carry on!  Make it work!  Smile…people will smile back at cha!

best, marilyn

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! to see how it has all turned out! I'm so blessed!
