Our Community Focus

Bigger and better! Boom! Hurrah!

May 07, 2018 11:12AM ● By Don and Norma Flaskerud

We did it once and we can do it again! Bigger and better! Boom! Hurrah! We enjoyed the best fireworks Pleasant Hill has ever had last year due to generous contributions from local residents and businesses. Don and Norma proudly matched donations up to $5,000 for a $10,000 increase in fireworks purchased. They were enjoyed by all and there were many compliments! Viewers come not just from Pleasant Hill but far and wide, so we hope our readers, wherever you live, will want to donate and then come and enjoy the fireworks on the 4th!


“Spectacular” was often stated to describe the fireworks display last year -- let’s do it again this year!! The 4th of July fireworks has become the pride of Pleasant Hill, shared far and wide, as people watch on the College Park High School fields and from hills around town! Accompanying music and food enhance the experience for people of all ages.


·              Make checks out to “4th of July Commission” and note “Fireworks” in the memo!

  • We thank you in advance!

Real Estate Update:

We continue to see low inventory and multiple offers on houses priced appropriately. Of course, the lower the price point, the greater the number of buyers who can afford a house and make offers on it. We agents are observing who comes to our open houses, and it’s no surprise they come from Fremont, the Peninsula, San Francisco -- places where prices are much higher. We offer great communities with comparatively affordable prices, and we are seeing an influx of new residents we should all welcome!


Who are the sellers? Frankly, we see many who are cashing out and moving to less pricey states, using their equity to pay cash on their next home and help fund their retirement years. 


Home ownership in the SF Bay Area has been a moneymaker for those who were able to buy in previous years and decades. We wish all the buyers well and are here to assist if asked!


We have a few listings not yet on the market that we are truly excited about, from low to mid-point prices. Contact us for a sneak peek!
