Apple in conflict mineral crackdown

good news from my other career.

Apple has begun publicising which of its suppliers may be sourcing minerals from conflict zones in an attempt to force more ethical manufacturing.

Specializing is for insects, true, but now I have a listing for a business and want to be a small business broker. Helping people buy and sell small businesses is a lot of fun. Maybe a new niche? It appears women are underrepresented in this area, as they are in commercial real estate in general.

"cosy" in real estate parlance. nice with a big yard and small family. our family of four shares 840sf, and loves it, but the weather outdoors is key.

An Oregon couple is liberated by a house that is cheap to operate and small enough to vacuum in five minutes.

living with friends is the best

Bay Area 20- and 30-somethings are flocking to “intentional communities,” tech-savvy, not particularly politicized versions of communes, where shared living became popular in the ’60s.

El Cerrito Home

I put on offer in on this property for clients yesterday, and didn't get it. Boo, so sad, it's a beautiful time capsule home. One owner since it was built in 1969, and she died there. Matching original kitchen appliances all in working order. The winning bid was really high, and I know they're just going to tear it all out. The listing agent clearly did not think the kitchen was a selling highlight, so I will post photos in my next post.

Zestimate® Home Value: $651,389. Rarely does a custom spacious home 2 blocks from the beautiful Mira Vista Golf & Country Club come on the market that has a perfect floor plan for indoor and outdoor entertaining plus peaceful views of 3 bridges, the golf course, & sunsets over Mt. Tam.

How to Land a Loft

nice affirmation for our personal residence-buying decision: buy a commercially zoned space and turn it into your apartment. You have to get creative in this market.

Some adventurous buyers are mining the commercial market for residential space.

Green data lacking in listings for resold homes

something needs to be done about this disconnect in the market.

WASHINGTON — When it comes to energy efficiency and "green" features in homes, there's a chasmal disconnect in the marketplace among consumers, real estate appraisers and the nation's realty sales system.

working on my vision statement. How about: Realtor for tree huggers. Putting the earth back in real estate. I think those are more like mottos. Maybe: I'm a top producer with clients who are committed to making their piece of earth healthy and sustainable, inside and out. hmm, I'll keep working on it
