This evening, while my husband fixed a simple dinner for us to enjoy while listening to the Warriors game (no TV at our place) I took a short walk to reach my daily goal of 10,000 steps. I couldn't help but stop and enjoy this large Jacaranda tree in full bloom. (The house isn't bad either!) I tr...

Physically, San Francisco is a small city, roughly 49 square miles in size, with over 864,000 residents packed into its confines. The density, steep hills, heavily trafficked streets and numerous high rise buildings create challenges for many, including the San Francisco Fire Department. In addit...

Yesterday I met a friend, a real estate colleague from across the bay in Oakland. It was our day for a City walk, which we attempt to schedule quarterly. We share how our markets are doing, what new things we've learned, what challenges we face. While we talk, we walk.These pictures were taken as...

Admittedly, I don't watch Modern Family as often as I'd like to, but this scene from a recent epsode is hilarious.  Phil turns on the juice, and goes for the kill.  I think my favorite part is when Sophia Vergaro's character, Gloria, snaps back with, "Ah...he's a Realtor®.  There is a difference ...

 Admittedly...I'm a little addicted to Blue Bottle coffee.  Thank goodness, you can find them all around the City.  And, when my staging business (back in the day) had a warehouse on the 300 block of Brannan Street, we often walked over to Brickhouse cafe for a quick take-out lunch.  It was good ...

Steiner Street in San Francisco is definitely one of the most photographed spots in the City.  You can't drive by without seeing a flock of tourists on the hill with their phones held out and aiming eastward.  And, while it's a cool spot to see in person, I can think of several, "prettier" (and l...

In San Francisco, you see dogs everywhere. Taking a dog to the park is an easy way to meet neighbors, to belong to a group. Store owners have water bowls out for pets; many have doggie treats behind the counter to hand out. This is a city that loves its dogs.But not everyone is a pet owner or wis...
