THE SECOND STORY | August 6th, 2020

Into the 2nd week of AUGUST?

I’ve never been on so many Zoom and/or RingCentral meetings in the last 5 months!

Now, most everything is done virtually. My heart goes out to the kids who can’t see their friends – except virtually. And how about those parents? They are my heroes! Especially my son and my daughter-in-law who is a middle school science teacher…and these adults are teaching these young ones at home as well!

The real estate biz has been quickly adjusting to the new normal like everything else! As I’ve said many times during this pandemic, we have seen a glimpse of what real estate can do, and is doing, to get folks in and out of properties (including houses, townhomes, condos, leased offices, big offices, industrial parks, vacant land).


AC (active contingent on selling another property)

PCH (price change)

PSB (pending sale, want backups)


Active listings 47 including 1 AC and 1 PCH

Pending listings 17 including 5 PSB

Sold listings 13

OK…that’s a wrap! Be nice, wave hello to those who are walking or riding by, wear masks, and try not to complain. We’ve got enough of that already, and we have 3 months to go before we get to the election.

Let me know if you have questions about the real estate market, here in Alameda. And it’s easy for me to do a CMA (Comparable Market Analysis) for you…online.

Have a great weekend!  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!
