Time out for the Adrian Ruiz Memorial Fundraiser

We’re simply too busy at the moment working with clients, changing up the sfnewsletter, living life, and helping organize and spread the word about the Adrian Ruiz Memorial Fundraiser. We have no time for our beloved theFrontSteps today. Please follow that link or click on the photo below to see all the great things San Francisco, and all the great people around us, have donated. It’s truly unbelievable.

See you next week!

Did Redfin just buy a little more time? Is this the end of “traditional” real estate firms…we think not not. You?

Reader Reports: Bay Area attracts top talent and money

From a reader:

Best article of what is really going on in SF…

We have to agree that it is a very good example of the caliber of intellect, talent, and passion we find in San Francisco that will certainly help San Francisco weather this storm; however, it is not the entire picture. A good read regardless.

Battle Royale: Tokyo or San Francisco if you had to choose

Since we’re on the subject…Tokyo or San Francisco if you had to choose and why…please. ;-)

We know nothing about Tokyo, and have never been, so should we decide to take a trip there, what can we expect, and what should we avoid. Of course, since this is a real estate blog, we’d also love to know what our money can(not) buy.
