Shred Party wrap-up! Alameda Meals on Wheels wins!

Shredding Party….was great! Bright sunshine, great people, lots of SHREDDING! Joshy, our shred-meister was terrific…getting out to the cars to load up the big bin and stopping to talk with folks! Remind me next year, that I got too many donuts (delish as they were)!  And Alameda Meals on Wheels will get a tidy $500 (Rosemary wasn’t at the office this week, so I’ll give the donation to her on Monday)! Thank you all!

I had to take this photo of tulips on Grand Street!


…continuing on from the last two  blog posts:


    • WE DETERMINE IF WE HAVE A MUTUALLY ACCEPTABLE BASIS UPON WHICH TO DO BUSINESS – at that time we decide if we wish to proceed to work together.

Either we are a match, or not! It takes the Seller(s) and the agent/Broker (me) to decide this together.  No hard feelings…it’s about whether we can accomplish the goal…getting a property sold at the highest price possible. That being said….

…I have a new listing that I just put on the market today…3402 Redhook Lane, a 2 bedroom, 2 bath townhome in Garden Isle. See the column to the right for the details. Usually, Ricky, the photographer I use, launches a drone. However, because this is too close to the North Field of OAK Airport, the FAA rules dictate that if the drone goes over 300′ it will automatically shut down…as in ‘crash.’ But he did get some nice overhead shots.  Check it out! Or better yet, come to the open house on Sunday 2-4pm.

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!
