Atherton utopia for the masses?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Premier Property Group

 I am amazed at what has happened to this sleepy residential "village" it has never been an inexpensive place to live but with the prices going up like they are I often wonder what is going to happen in the next ten years or so. With the average selling price in Atherton well above the three million dollar mark and Menlo Park not far behind - where are the service providers going to live? Will this area eventually turn into a utopia of sorts for the chosen few that can afford it - who will serve them? Do you think the service folks are going to commute an hour or two to cut lawns, and clean homes? Let me know your thoughts...
