_59A3420-HDRAfter watching the VIDEO & Aerial Tour come see this ‘turn-key’ house.  It will be just like walking through the home. Then, come to the Open House on Sat., 3/31 from 1 – 4 and see it yourself.  You will be glad you did.

135 Rays Circle, Hollister offers 4 bd., 2.5 home, 2,200 sf. of living space on a single level, has a sizable 3 car garage and it sits on one of the largest lots in Ridgemark Golf & Country – 13,000 sf.!!  Much of that large lot is in the backyard.

This home has been completely refreshed. The kitchen is open and bright.  I love the slab granite counter tops and down-draft stove in the preparation island. There is new carpet and flooring, fresh paint inside and out, new gutters all the way around.  Both raised fireplaces are gas starters and the indoor laundry offers both gas and electric for your dryer.

135 Rays Circle is on an interior lane where there is virtually no traffic.  Rays Circle doesn’t go anywhere except off of, and back onto Donald Dr., so the only cars typically belong to neighbors.  It is quiet & peaceful.

Schools and shopping are nearby.  A 20 min. ‘country drive’ delivers you to the “Gilroy Premium Outlet  Center” and “CalTrains” for a convenient commute.  The beaches and Monterey are 30 min. from here.

I hope to see you on Sat., 3/31.

What Can We Do?!!!!

Our CEO, James Dwiggins, wrote a heart tugging post regarding his personal experience with the reprehensible event in Las Vegas. In his post he listed 11 mass murders which occurred over that last 2 years. James’ questions, his pleas, are echoed in all of our hearts: what can we do to stop this unwelcomed “new normal” in the US.  Here is my response:

Here’s the tough reality James: you listed 11 horrific events above. A total of 12-15 people did all of that. There are 325,000,000+ Americans who are mostly good people. Laws, regulations and rhetoric can’t and wont change crazy people’s intentions. What we desperately need are families who raise children in loving homes where ageless values are taught and exhibited. We need to teach that LOVE for, and patience in, all our of neighbors is SO important. There are not enough police and jails and laws to insure that all will stay on the path of caring and patience with differences. It has to come from inside each of us. I’m glad you are safe and shared your thoughts. God bless humanity.

Views, Easy Commute, Nice

night view valleyWOW!!! The views!!! This “Communication Hills” home at 312 Casselino Dr. San Jose, has an unobstructed view of the valley and foothills beyond. Watch the VIDEO Tour on YouTube, search this address (posting 8/25).

At night the entire valley twinkles with lights. The location couldn’t be more central to every venue – just Google Map it and be impressed!

Great floor plan for easy living and entertaining. THIS home has a tastefully done office, in addition to the 3, sizable bedrooms (the others don’t). THIS home’s patio is one level and is lined with a manicured hedge (most others don’t). Off the master suite is another, private lanai. The owners enjoy the convenience up having the laundry room upstairs. With a 18′ living room ceiling and tall windows there is plenty of natural, ambient light. There are so many enjoyable features to this home you’ll have to come see it.

Past vs. Future

I grew up in a little town in Contra Costa Cnty, CA and played sports in the ACCAL League. The majority of folks were African-Americans. I was the minority. I know, 1st hand, what it is like. There were several events which could have made me categorize all people, of certain groups, as my enemy. Luckily, to this day, I’m ‘color blind’.

I watch what individuals DO when they’re not in the spot light; what daily choices they make. I’ve found there are many, many good people from all walks. This approach has brought me peace even where events could have caused me to be angry.

I wish more of us were ‘color blind’. I wish more of us operated from love of our fellow travelers. It would be so much more productive and peaceful if more of us looked FORWARD with hope and enthusiasm. Learn from the past. Repeat the past good and don’t continue its bad. But focus more on today and the future. There is a reason the review mirror in our cars is so much smaller than the windshield.

Enjoy this classic Beatles’ song: “All You Need Is Love”.
