THE SECOND STORY | April 15th, 2021

Top of Mind….Our 15th Annual Shredding Party!

All of you are invited to my 15th Annual Shredding Party! Tell your friends!

Saturday, May 1st, 9am – 1pm!

This will be the second time we’ve had this party with Covid lingering around. Wear a mask, keep the distance, and IT’S FREE TO YOU, FROM ME! If you choose to make a donation, I will match what you donate, and all proceeds go to Alameda (city) Meals on Wheels! Last year we donated $6080. and the AMOW office staff was ecstatic!

If you want to feel good because you’ve done something good (like donating to Alameda Meals on Wheels)…join us! Text, email, or call me for the address! (It’s at my house.) 

You will see/hear the truck, which will be parked in front of my house!

Alameda Real Estate this week…


AC (active contingent on selling another property)

PCH (price change)

PSB (pending sale, want backups)

DOM (days on market)


Active listings 32, including 1 PCH

DOM  High 1439  Low 1  Avg 8  Med 9

Pending listings 14

DOM  Hgh 8  Low 0  Avg 8  Med  9

Sold listings 12

DOM  12  Low  0  Avg 6  Med 7

If you haven’t heard, the DOM is super low. If you need a loan, the lender needs to put it in writing –  that you’re PRE-APPROVED, not pre-qualified.

If you have some questions about the Alameda market, toss them at me! I may not know the answers but I probably have contacts that do have the answers.

Load up your bags, boxes, and watch those papers turn into bits! Shred away!

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!
