Shredding Party…this Saturday!

The Shredding Party 
is Saturday 9 – noon!  

If you need info, email or phone me.  This is for my clients (who are my friends) and my other friends! 

The Cintas truck was driven by my friend Sal in previous years, but I’m not sure who will be driving it this year.  It’s big and it grinds up stuff good!  He had a good time at this gig!

Boomer Chick Musings – my take on a very confusing world!

Quick Glimpses – 
The definitive word on HARP (for upside down owners but who have maintained monthly payments and avoided default).  If you think you meet these requirements and need a lender who you can rely on, let me know.  If you’ve refied since June 2, 2009….this won’t let you in but there is wind out there that there might be another version coming out.  Check it out.

ALAMEDA REAL ESTATE AWARDS THIS WEEK...remember this is only my perspective!
Winner!  Back story – this sold in March of 08 for 925K on a list price of $1,020,000.  These folks are now selling it for 899K….while the prices are up, some folks haven’t yet made back what they put into a home.  They may have recouped some of their down payment, but have yet to make a profit.  I honestly think folks who could sell, are waiting for better times….still.

Get me a facelift!  This is totally, totally original!  Clean, but original.

That’s it!  Carry on!  Shred, shred, shred!  Make it work!

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!
