events: Buyer Information Night 4/25/19, Rockwell, San Francisco - 04/24/19 07:48 PM
Come join Tom Parke, sales manager at Mason-McDuffie, Lottie Kendall, Realtor at Compass, and Rachael Kendall, team associate, as we demystify the buying process and answer fundamental questions like:
how do I know if I'm qualified to buy anything? what's a credit score and how do I know if mine is good? how much down payment must I have? rents are sky-high in San Francisco; is it possible for me to buy a place of my own? These are typical questions we are often asked, the Buyer Information Night makes it easy to learn and ask questions in a friendly, no-pressure environment.

Russian Hill Bookstore, a family-owned store in business since 1974 and one of San Francisco's legacy businesses, has recently moved two blocks south on Polk Street to a larger location.

With more than 50,000 participants and well over 100,000 spectators, one can barely shuffle along until well after the Hayes Street Hill and Alamo Park. It's not until one enters Golden Gate Park that the crowds thin out enough to run, and then it's an ego … (23 comments)
