THE SECOND STORY | May 13th, 2021

The Results Are In…

I knew the Shredding Party went pretty well, and there were a few checks that came in last week…

Bottom line: We (all of us) were able to donate a total of $7419. 00…

…to Alameda (city) Meals on Wheels, which included my matching funds.

Thank you to all who came, shredded (or not), and donated!

One of my good friends works for a company that will match any charitable donation (up to a certain capped amount ) that an employee chooses to write a check to, as long as the recipient has been identified as an IRC 501 (C) (3) exemption. And that includes AMOW! And because he made such a lovely donation I matched both his and the company’s donation.

NEW Showing rules/guidelines for Alameda Co:  More than 2 buyers plus 1 agent can now see a property, as long as the buyers are from the same family. The buyer’s agent needs to call a scheduling service (one of those services Is in the MLS listing) to be sure the time is available. And the Buyer’s agent needs to have his client(s) sign the PEAD form and send it to the listing agent BEFORE the showing takes place. Be sure to verify that the above is current, because the rules are changing….that’s the responsibility of the Buyer’s agent to do! Be Safe!

Have a nice 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!
