I went out on tour to see what else is on the market. We preview 15-20 homes each week for our seller and buyer clients, then report back detailed information on each home so they know what makes the home special.. or not. And then we assign each home the famous LTC Rating of 1-4.
LTC = Lucy The Cat.
Lucy ranks each home between 1 and 4 paws, unless it’s really dreadful, at which point she gives it a “Hairball Rating”
And today was a particularly beautiful day.. with perfect light for the type of architectural photos I love to take.
My adventures took me past my favorite Bernard Maybeck building, the Kennedy Recital Hall at the corner of Buena Vista Way and Euclid, then on to Claremont Hills for a home with a spectacular panoramic bay view.
That brought me to Domingo Street and the Claremont Hotel. I had a quick lunch, then strolled through the Claremont Hotel grounds, returning home past Julia Morgan’s magnificent home on Belrose, Greene & Greene’s masterpiece on Piedmont Avenue, the International House down the street, and the Deco Printing Plant in Downtown Berkeley where the UN Charter was printed.
We offer our clients Hand Crafted Real Estate Service™, and it was a pleasure to spend the day viewing some of Berkeley’s spectacular Hand Crafted Homes
The day was beautiful, the light was spectacular, my polarizing filter was working (in some cases, too well) and here’s what I saw. All the photos were taken this afternoon, Valentine’s Day 2008, in the City I Love. And I got to come home to Carol, the woman I love.
That’s as good as it gets!
