Alameda Bagpipers in all of their glory!

                  Alameda’s Bagpipers!

I was driving my car, returning home from shopping. I heard the bagpipers! They were exactly where one my neighbors had told me: corner of Union and San Jose! There was a small crowd, and smiles were on all of the listening faces. Some young folks were even doing a jig! This is just one of the reasons why I love A-town!

I have a new listing @ 831 Haight Ave., just off Webster.  Check it out! It’s a 3 bedroom, 1 bath, priced for $725,000.  There will NOT be any open houses, or any Broker Tours. The instructions of how to show it is in the MLS so your agent can reserve a time to show it to you!

This property is close to most anything that you’ll need:

-Shopping (1 block away from the Farmers Market on Webster, Tues & Sat year-round)

-Transport (buses)

-Close to parks, beaches, windsurfing, and kite sailing.

AC (active contingent on selling another property)
PCH (price change)
PSB (pending sale, want backups)
DOM (days on market)

Questions? Let me know….I may or may not have the answer, but I’ll tell you the truth!

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!
