The Los Gatos Moutains - description, neighborhood names, homes for sale, and real estate market stats for the areas off of Highway 17 in the 95033 zip code - http://popehandy.com/los-gatos-mountains/ #realestate #losgatosmountains
John Steinbeck once wrote in a letter to a friend that his Los Gatos Mountain ranch was “so beautiful that often I am embarrassed to be living here.” Many Los Gatos Mountain residents feel that way even today, as this Santa Clara County (and Santa Cruz County) location remains beautiful and is ...

How's the Cupertino real estate market? The real estate market in Silicon Valley can sometimes be a little quirky, so I like to approach this question from a few angles. In this article I'll make use of my charts from Altos Research, which uses listing data (not solds) and is automatically ...

http://popehandy.com/woodside/
In San Mateo County halfway between San Francisco and San Jose, you'll find the prestigious town of Woodside. (Zip codes are 94061 and 94062.) Aptly named, Woodside sets amid huge second growth redwoods. Woodside Store, after which the town was named, was the center of logging activity in the ...

Los Altos Hills - a tony suburb in suburban Silicon Valley, equestrian friendly, 1 acre minimum lots, some views - think expensive!  Description of the area, market stats, and homes for sale - http://popehandy.com/los-altos-hills/

The Luxury Home Real Estate Market in Los Gatos & Monte Sereno - months of inventory for estate properties over $2,000,000 - Los Gatos 95030, Los Gatos 95032, Monte Sereno (both 95030 & 95032), and the Los Gatos Mountains 95033.  http://sanjoserealestatelosgatoshomes.com/the-luxury-home-real-estate-market-in-los-gatos-monte-sereno/ #rea;estate #losgatos
The luxury homes market frequently behaves very differently than the rest of the real estate market as a whole. If interest rates jump around, the impact is often far less since the home buyers of estate properties may not be nearly as dependent upon financing. Many of these fine homes & estates ...

Last Friday, my husband, Jim, enjoyed a flight over much of the south bay area with his brother, John, and our niece, Christine. I'm the lucky winner who gets loads of fantastic photos to share (with abundant gratitude to John Handy!)! Today I'll begin with a shot over west Los Gatos.

People living in the city of Cupertino have a shorter commute to most Silcon Valley high tech jobs and enjoy outstanding public schools. But then, they should, since Cupertino was named for St. Joseph of Cupertino, the patron saint of students and test takers! http://popehandy.com/cupertino/

My daughter and I ate there on July 18 2012. The food was good. Our waitress, Ina, was wonderful. But the manager was a jerk! We saw him arguing with our very overworked waitress in front of most of the restaurant (embarassing). On our way out, I told him that the food and service were really good. Instead of thanking me, he said "yes but sometimes I have to correct her (our waitress)." No need to bash his hard working waitress. I hope she finds a better job soon - they had her doing far too many tables (she had 11 that night) and instead of "public praise, private criticism", the obnoxious manager was doing it backwards. If they could get a new manager, it would be a really great restaurant. But right now, he makes the place uncomfortable and stressful for both employees and patrons.
