THE SECOND STORY | October 15th, 2020

Too dark….a lot earlier…

…and we haven’t even turned the clocks back yet.

Friends have been asking me about who/what to vote for. I kept a few mailers, but I tossed most of them without reading them.

It’s easier to refer friends to various vendors, than to step on any election toes.

The one thing that I did, because I listen to KQED, was to go onto their website to read about these massive numbers of Propositions. (I do have a few specific opinions on specific issues, but I won’t let them be known here.)


If you’re looking for some guidance…it’s right there. And I tossed my ballot into the USPS mailbox. BTW…I did sign up for the Tracking My Ballot.



AC (active contingent on selling another property)

PCH (price change)

PSB (pending sale, want backups)

PREO (pending sale, repossession)

New Listings 18 

Active Listings  47 including 3 PCH

Pending Listings 27 

Sold Listings 17

Now get out there and VOTE!

And have a pleasant weekend!  Let me know if you have any questions about the market….it’s a bit crazy out there. I had some folks call me about a house earlier this week and the listing agents had given out 23 disclosures packages!

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!
