The park opens at 7 AM and closes at sunset.  Make sure you are always aware of the parks trail signs and make sure that your pets are on a leash within the park. You can even reserve your own picnic area for parties and celebrations in Sycamore Grove Park.

It’s stories like these that make us just love what we do.

So many families are put in the stressful situation of having to sell one home and buy another concurrently, While trying to avoid living in a hotel or having to stay with friends and family till their new home closes escrow. Congratulations to our clients, Reed and Colleen, who successfully did just that!

Livermore home sold

Our clients in Livermore were recently engaged and needed to upsize to a larger home in anticipation of growing the family. Our seller found the home that he and his fiancé wanted (on our website) but hadn’t even started the process of selling their current home. They contacted us and we managed to secure the new home in escrow, beating out other offers at the same time.

 

With only 1 week to get their old home ready and staged for sale, we hit the ground running. Our team was diligent in creating a comparative market analysis in order to produce the most effective listing price for it to sell quickly. We received multiple offers and negotiated a 15 day closing as well as free rent back for our sellers (allowing them to stay in the home until escrow closed on their new home).

With our talented team and our on-the-ball client, we were able to smoothly negotiate and close both transactions.

The Historic Livermore California Train Depot

Livermore Train Depot

There was much controversy going down in the East Bay Area and more specifically in the Tri Valley, and unsurprisingly it involved a tampering with a bit of history. The historic train depot in Livermore California is 125 years old, and has been used as a place where tickets were sold to cattle ranchers, farmers and traders moving plants, cattle any other such goods by rail.

The 1872-built depot was actually relocated over a five hour period in the middle of the night on a Sunday morning, July 16, 2017. It was moved from the South L Street location – where it stood for a century and a quarter to it’s new “home” at 2500 Railroad Avenue.

The project took months in planning and cost more than $3 million to execute. But the restoration work has only just begun. Historical renovations will continue to take place and it is hoped that much of the charm of this small depot will be maintained in the new facelift.

When the small building was moved, it had to be cut in half, as it was too long to transport as one unit. It was transported all the way down to Railroad Avenue, where the slow-moving motorcade passed through two sets of traffic lights (that had been switched off as part of road closures), a traffic signal that had been temporarily removed, in case the depot came too close, and even underneath some power lines, that the local electricity company had raised just for the move.

Here is a great video of the move:

It had been a massive project, which required some meticulous planning. But despite some objections, locals and historians are thankful that it is still even here. In the past, it has been home to a restaurant, a dance studio and a real estate office, before being closed down in 1973 and earmarked for the bulldozers.

This gave rise to a movement known as the Livermore Heritage Guild, a historic appreciation society that was unhappy with the sheer volume of old heritage buildings being knocked down in Livermore. There were no longer any railroad tracks outside the depot, so it seemed the historic depot was either doomed to destruction or moved to a place where it can continue its legacy.

Thankfully, many from the guild were happy that the 125-year old piece of history kept its life in a new location next to the railroad tracks. We look forward to seeing the changes and restorations set to be made for the important Livermore landmark.
