THE SECOND STORY | August 23rd, 2018

Real estate is real life….

Rejection…nobody likes it.

Sometimes real estate comes easy…sometimes it doesn’t.  We need the downs to appreciate the ups. And we need the ups to realize that there is nothing that can really take us down. And we can still change our minds, keep on track, and steer a steady course. That puts the real back into real estate!

Best, m

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!
