THE SECOND STORY | May 9th, 2014

Open house in Alameda…

This was the tip of the iceberg of the ‘shoes off or booties on’ at the open house I held last Sunday at 1237 Versailles.  At some point, a looker came out and said “They are having a neighborhood watch meeting downstairs!”

And so goes Alameda.
this week…the family that plays together…stays together.

Commentary – I think you knew this…..
Homes Are Selling Fast

It’s been a busy week…have closed 3 transactions (2 Sellers and 1 Buyer).

*The house at 3519 DePassier (3 bdrm, 2.5 baths) closed for 685K, the list price.

*The house at 2745 Young Street (2 bedroom, 2.5 baths) closed for 680K on a list of 600K.

*And my buyers purchased the house that their dreams are made of….1204 Bay Street 2.2M on a 2.285 list price.

On Friday May 9th, looking at offers for the house on 1237 Versailles (where all the shoes came off!)  As of late Friday it is pending.

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!
