It is just a few days away-the annual Independence Day Parade in downtown Piedmont.  Make plans to bring comfortable seating, family and friends, and watch the passing parade.  The parade will start at 11:00 a.m. at the corner of Highland Avenue and Park Way.  One of the major appeals about the parade is that city neighborhoods and various community organizations are invited to enter to participate at no fee.  As a result, lots of Piedmont neighbors and imaginative floats will be passing by. 

Favorite and returning entries will include The Piedmont Community Band, the Balloon Platoon, The Barrelhouse Jazz Band, The Pinto Rangers, Critters By The Bay, The Zenith New Orleans Parade Band, and the Raiderettes.  But that's not all.  As is expected

Once you have decided to buy an Oakland home, or Oakland condo, and begin your search, one of your most important first steps will be getting the all important financing to purchase it.  As you begin to work with me, I will assist you in directing you to some potential loan sources that I feel will be useful and valuable in your search.  Many buyers need to be sure that they understand the difference between two very important loan terms.  The first is "Pre-Qualified", and the second is "Pre-Approved".  There is a big difference between them.

In many neighborhoods in Oakland and Piedmont, the stock of homes is low, and as a result, homes are being bid upon quickly, and are often off the market within a couple of weeks.  This means that when you

This design concept of a 26 story residential tower at Jack London Square furnished by Ellis Partners.

Recently, Oakland Tribune writer Matthew Artz wrote an article relating that the development company Ellis Partners is interested in placing two residential towers amid the current hustle and bustle of Jack London Square shops and restaurants.  One tower would be 17 stories tall, and the other is projected to be 26 stories.  (see above)

Sides have been drawn up among supporters, and those not in agreement with the project.  Downtown Oakland has been, over the years, slowly growing and changing.  Within the last 7-10 years, the Fox Theater area, the Jack London area and adjacent neighborhoods have seen new homes, restaurants, entertainment and

 If you want your Oakland home to stand out among the competition, you will want to make it attractive and memorable.  To do that,  take some basic steps that can, with a little planning, be reasonable financially, and can cause your house to be remarkable.  Although I will have suggestions to help you get ready for your Open Home, here are some basic concepts that work well:

1. Create Outstanding Curb Appeal--This means refreshing your front yard, trimming trees and bushes, planting flowers and weeding gardens.  Don't stop there, however.  With a little bit of paint, touch up the front door (consider an attractive, contrasting color) and window trim.  Add new house numbers, and upgrade your outside porch lamp.  This first step is extremely
