Our Busy Third Quarter Was Just The Beginning!

The summer selling season is notoriously fast paced with high turnaround. While we had a strong summer, it continued throughout the fall as well. With a total sales volume of $24,917,275 we had one of our best quarters yet! We owe our success to our fantastic clients. With their trust and support, we were able to make a lot of dreams come true!

We encountered families that were growing and needing an upsize while also meeting retired, empty nesters who were ready for new adventures. All the homes were loved by their respective families, but it was time for them to start fresh with new families ready to put their love into them.

A couple of the families we helped were looking to relocate. One was moving to the East Coast and needed to sell their home, while the other wanted to move to Pleasanton to take advantage of our top schools. Relocation can be difficult because maybe they’re no longer in the home they’re selling, or they don’t know different neighborhoods they’ll prospectively live in. We try to make the smoothest transition possible for these families from beginning to end.

We also had some first-time buyers. We love answering all their questions and explaining the process every step of the way. We also work with an amazing team of lenders and escrow officers that are wonderful at helping first-time buyers.

Getting a testimonial like this makes it all worth it:

“Simply the best team for buying a home. Very personal touch through the whole process, always reachable and great interactions. Highly recommended real estate team! Special call-out to Michelle, who did a fantastic job in keeping us updated and DeAnna, Kim and Amanda were outstanding in providing us info and additional details whenever needed. Just a fantastic experience.”

With the current climate, we don’t know what is going to happen next year, but we know what is happening right now and can help guide you to get top dollar for your home.

We currently have 7 homes in escrow, and don’t see business slowing down anytime soon. Contact us for a free consultation. We’d love to discuss your next plan of action!

The Pleasanton and Dublin California Farmers Markets

dublin-market

Dublin Farmers Market:

Dublin has one of the finest farmers’ markets in the entire state of California. And as of April 13th it’s back in its usual home too. Emerald Glen Park is the setting for the farmers’ market event and it could not be a finer place to hold the market, which runs right through the summer months until September 21st. The Emerald Glen Park is like walking in to a small part of the Emerald Isle itself. The green, green grass and trees give the visitor a small feel like you could be in Ireland.

The Dublin Farmers’ Market is for everyone. Even you can set up a booth by filling out an online form or simply by sponsoring a stall at the market to promote your services or goods. There are a number of weekly special events which take place through the summer at the farmers’ market and this year you can see musicians regularly performing while you stroll through the stalls and check out the newest unique items and freshest produce.

There will be beer tasting events, wine tasting and cooking demonstrations that will give you some great ideas for entertaining. The emphasis will occasionally center on the fun and competitive element, so you can cheer on their favorites. How fast can your partner cook and deliver an omelette? Will your friend be able to create a tasty burger in a quicker time than a competitor? It’s all good fun at the Dublin Farmers’ Market.

Pleasanton Farmers’ Market:

Unlike the Dublin Farmers’ Market, which is only open from April through to September, the market in Pleasanton is open all year long. Whether rain or shine, it’s always open every Saturday.

It sells fresh vegetables, delicious fruits and delicacies all grown in the lush California orchards and fields so close to home. You can buy delicious healthy blueberries by the pint; imagine sprinkling them on your morning cereal for breakfast to ensure a delicious treat and one that is considered superfood healthy too.

The Pleasanton Farmers’ Market also specialises in olive oils, delightful cheeses, ground or root vegetables, pastries, sausages, baked breads, chicken and you will always be entertained by live musicians performing as you browse the stalls and organic groceries on Angela Street.

So be sure to get out to the markets and support your local hard working vendors, and save time by picking up those items you need for the upcoming week’s dinners.
