The Brotherhood in Sports

I love the the team-member brotherhood* found in sports.  Check out these 2 touching stories: today, watch this in the NBL;

                                                                                                              and during the Olympics

In a remote way I often experience similar ‘closeness’ with a client through a difficult escrow.

059A0178I’m059A0203 hosting an Open House on the gorgeous home.  Watch this VIDEO Tour of it and you will see what I mean. Open Sat..7/30/16 from 2-4.

Available in Ridgemark Golf & Country Club

Lrg PatioHere is your chance to own a home in the remarkable, “Ridgemark Golf and Country Club”.

As you will see in this VIDEO Tour, 50 Florence Ct., Hollister is just one of 5 homes on a private court within the gated golf and tennis community.

This home sits on a 10,700 sq. ft. lot with wide side yards for behind-the-fence-storage of your RV, boat and toys.  It has 1,945 sq. ft. of living space with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths.

Many features of this home have recently been refreshed: there is a new roof; the exterior was recently painted; the master suite has new carpet; all of the appliances are just 2 years old.

I love the new manufactured hardwood floor in the kitchen leading up to the brick fireplace and the private patio just outside the dining area.  The great room also has it’s own fireplace, floor to ceiling windows for natural light and there is another private patio just out side this cozy room.  Each room has exposed beam ceilings.  In addition to the new forced air heater, there are 4 heaters for individual room comfort.

Outside the master bathroom is a sparkling hot tub.  And then, there is the massive backyard.

Since Ridgemark is just 40 miles from San Jose, Monterey and the beaches it is ideally located for an easy commute and vacation-time when you are home.

Text, email or call me for your own personal tour.  First Open House: 4/16/16, 1-4 PM.

 

Open House – San Juan Bautista!

pool 2Plan it: Saturday, 1-4 PM, San Juan Bautista.

Watch the VIDEO Tour of 775 Via Vaquero Norte.  It will be like walking through this great home.

However, you won’t be able to smell the chocolate chip cookies.  (I’m working on “scent technology” but until we figure out how to share that electronically, you’ll just have to stop by in person).

12′ ceilings, tall windows, private 1/2 acre lot with a custom pool and waterfall, separate living quarters for your ‘just marrieds’ or grandma, single story, 2,850 sq. ft., A/C, granite countertops and 18″ tile floors, fruit trees, vineyard & garden, large tool shed, RV/boat concrete pad behind gates, and many more features make this a comfortable home.

With Hwy 101 less than a mile away: Monterey & the beaches are just 30 min. West and in 15 min. the other direction you’ll be at “Gilroy Premium Outlet” and Caltrain for an easy commute, San Jose Airport in 50 min (off peak) and Disneyland in 5 hrs.

Play tennis and basketball within the private community and golf just down the road at the award wining “San Juan Oaks Golf and Country Club”.

Call me for the gate code to this wonderful, gated community.

 

 

 

San Jose 4th Fastest Turn-Around Values

This study shows San Jose, CA as the 4th of 10 top real estate areas in the US where home values continue to increase.

Likewise, the South County communities, who supply much of the employment for the San Jose area, have been experiencing the same appreciation.  Morgan Hill, Gilroy and Hollister’s home values have all risen proportionate to that of #4 in the nation, San Jose.

So, is this another inflating bubble?  Will we see another bubble burst?  What if the interest rates keep going up will that slow down the appreciation?  What if the bank’s bulging inventory of foreclosed homes came onto the market at a faster pace than the trickle of token homes we have seen over the last 14 months?

What do you think?

Nation’s Happiest Employees: Right Here

Not only is San Jose, CA the highest home-value-appreciation area in the US (see 2/10/11 post below), it is also the city with the happiest employees in the country.  This Forbes article puts San Jose on top and San Francisco right behind it.

And, since the majority of those who live in Hollister, Gilroy, and Morgan Hill drive to the San Jose area for work we can safely assume that we are also the happiest employees in the US.  Right?

After all, we have 2 of our own In-N-Out restaurants, the Gilroy Premium Outlets and 3 lakes.

Now if we could just get Hwy. 101 widened from Hwy. 152 in Gilroy to Hwy. 85 in San Jose we would all be a lot happier.
