THE SECOND STORY | November 17th, 2017

Happy Thanksgiving!

Stacked like pancakes, lenticular clouds,           Nov 4, 2017 taken in Alameda!

Follow me on my for-fun blog… 



I had the opportunity to put on the market, a new listing last Friday….. It’s a small home, 1 bedroom & 1 bath, but the lot is deep and has a detached garage and plus room, separated by a large deck and pavers in the backyard. The Seller gave me 26 pages of finaled permits on this home, and he’s been working on it for the past 6 months.  Top of the line appliances, finishes, paint, floors, crown molding, double-paned windows, and single level. NO HOA FEES! Will be open this Sunday 2-4pm. You may be able to put an ADU Accessory Dwelling Unit on the property. See the City of Alameda website below for info.

Here’s the drone shoot below of my most recent listing.

I also wrote an offer for some clients last week and they got the house, despite the competition!

I typically go into hibernation (along with my blogs) from Thanksgiving through the end of December. This year is no different! However, feel free to get in touch with me…text, email, phone, just to say ‘hi’ or if you have questions about the Alameda Real Estate market. I’ll be around!

Will be working on the 2 pending sales I have in escrow, and hope to get the small house into escrow, as well.

Have a wonderful holiday season, full of peace, calm, quiet joy, and wonderment. 

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!
