We Live In San Francisco “With All The Gays”


Having recently met some people who did not live anywhere near San Francisco, but certainly lived in a large metropolitan area that one could easily argue has a much more diverse population than San Francisco…okay fine, they were New Yorkers…we were surprised when after we said we live in San Francisco, the first thing out … Continue reading We Live In San Francisco “With All The Gays”

In San Francisco It’s Ritual Coffee Roasters Versus Blue Bottle Coffee


Having just purchased our first bag of “Sweet Tooth Espresso” from Ritual Roasters after more than six years of dedicated grinding, tamping, and pouring exclusively of Blue Bottle Coffee, we’re a bit torn as to what to do. We’ve had Ritual on many different occasions, but allowing their beans to enter into the home, and … Continue reading In San Francisco It’s Ritual Coffee Roasters Versus Blue Bottle Coffee

If You Must Leave San Francisco, Chew On This


Every time we leave San Francisco we’re reminded just how great this city is, and sometimes we write posts about it. We often have our words taken out of context and are continually blasted for being selfish, sleazy Realtors, and we must always aim to please everyone all the time, because anyone is a potential … Continue reading If You Must Leave San Francisco, Chew On This

Reasons We Live Here #15: Iconic Architecture


There are many reasons WE live here in San Francisco, and certainly many reasons YOU live here, so feel free to share with us. We captured this photo just yesterday evening on walkabout in North Beach, and thought, “damn that’s cool!” Just another reason we live here…great (iconic) architecture old and new all around us.

Reason We Live In San Francisco #13 (Friday The 13th Edition)


It is Friday the 13th, and bad things are supposed to happen today. Not if you’re a skier/boarder, and not if you live in San Francisco or the greater Bay Area (of course it’d be better in Tahoe or Utah, but let’s not dwell on that): That’s seven feet of snow in seven days for … Continue reading Reason We Live In San Francisco #13 (Friday The 13th Edition)

Reason We Live Here #12


The best big wave surfers of the world converge just down our highway in Half Moon Bay…when conditions permit: But when is a local boy, like Ryan Seelbach or Grant Washburn going to take top honors? The Santa Cruz boys are getting beaten pretty good, but what’s up with the South African and San Clemente … Continue reading Reason We Live Here #12

Reason We Live Here #11


Because guys like this can be your friends and clients. Ryan Seelbach, absolutely charging at Maverick’s, and bringing it home for San Francisco! To gain some perspective on the magnitude of this photo and wave, Ryan is 6’6″…Break out your rulers and calculate that wave height for a second. Or go outside and find the … Continue reading Reason We Live Here #11

In Marketing, Less is More


Our neighbor’s (Tiburon) “back yard”. (Yes, that is the Golden Gate Bridge on the right, and the city of San Francisco just left of center.) In case you are wondering, that back yard could be yours for $7,650,000, and you get 5300 square feet of “Romantic View Property” to go with it. Can’t afford to … Continue reading In Marketing, Less is More

Urban Driving at its finest, and reason we live here #9


We’ve been seeing quite a few of these cars rolling around our streets lately (saw one today in fact, and the guys driving were definitely Italian), and welcome them with open arms. Not only do we think they’re ideal for those tight parking spaces, but they’re also all you truly need if you’re a verified … Continue reading Urban Driving at its finest, and reason we live here #9

new space challenge, and reason we live here #8


Guess what this space is going to be, and where it is, and forever feel like a bad ass. Feel free to pass this on, and spread the love. There might be something in it for the correct answer. Here’s a hint…it might leave you feeling BLŪ, could help a hangover, can be addictive, and … Continue reading new space challenge, and reason we live here #8

Reason we live here #7


As much as we complain about the fog in summer, a very big reason we all live here is the temperate climate. While the rest of the state scorches, we’re enjoying perfect weather! Hah! Imagine what home prices would be if we had weather like San Diego. Actually, don’t. That would hurt. –More Reasons we … Continue reading Reason we live here #7

Unique is an Understatement (2901 Pine)


[Update: Sold June 2007 for $2,300,000] 2901 Pine St. is one of those properties you only wish you had the guts to do (assuming you’re remodeling). The place is sweet! (In our opinion) We literally just walked out of there and were so impressed, we came to post. You must check it out. Formerly a … Continue reading Unique is an Understatement (2901 Pine)
