In uncertain times it is good to remember the extent of our good fortune. We are grateful for the beauty that surrounds us in the East Bay. The bounty of our area’s attributes have stabilized the market in our area. Home prices in much of the East Bay have held steady, even as we watch outlying areas absorb a heavy hit from the sub-prime fallout. We give thanks to the wonderful clients that have honored us by choosing Berkeley Hills Realty to represent them. We are further grateful for our past clients’ willingness to refer us to their friends and family. Approximately 80% of our business continues to come from such referrals. We give thanks to the people we work with in our office and the larger real estate community. Our office is filled with dynamic individuals with diverse offerings and backgrounds. I am continually impressed by a group that represents a multitude of languages spoken, varied and impressive educational backgrounds, and most of all boundless levels of integrity and compassion. To all of my associates, clients and friend, I will raise a glass to you tomorrow. Be well. Cheers to you and yours!
