  Greetings All, The numbers are in. If you’re like me, all the (almost gleeful, at times) media pronouncements of the “death of” San Francisco, the Bay Area, and California at large, bug the heck out of you. Moving to Austin? Yuck, that’s in Texas! Relocating to Arizona? Is it hotter than 68 degrees? Forget it! […]

  Greetings All,   Welcome to 2021! Well, another time measurement is upon us. Time may be an illusion, but my graying hair isn’t.   Maybe instead of the usual “What New Year’s Resolutions Have You Made?”, we should think in terms of “Letting Go”. Letting go of old habits that don’t serve us. Letting […]

  Greetings All, Some years ago, Warren Buffet was asked about his business strategy. “We simply attempt to be fearful when others are greedy and to be greedy only when others are fearful”, he answered. He’s done all right for himself, hasn’t he? When it comes to condos in San Francisco and elsewhere, another quote […]

  Greetings All,   Welcome to the Second half of 2020! The first half has been a mixture of frightening, maddening, saddening, uplifting… certainly unlike anything a great majority of us can ever recall experiencing. COVID-19, social unrest, equity market tumbles and rises, massive unemployment… it’s as if the first half of this year has been […]

Greetings All,   Welcome to the “new normal”, our “new reality”. The events of the past three-plus months have led to the use of new terms, bordering on clichés. “In these ‘challenging,’ ‘trying,’ ‘uncertain’ or ‘unprecedented’ times, we’re assured that “we can all get through this, together”.     But with constant repetition, it’s no […]
