Keith Pandolfi editor at This Old House contacted me a few months ago after he selected Oakland as one of the best cities to buy an old house in the United States. Keith wanted to know more about the various districts of Oakland, as he was looking for a great neighborhood for first time home buyers. I suggested Temescal, as many of my clients would love to live there. I am happy to say that the Temescal district of Oakland made it through to the July/August 2009 issue. ...and I am happy to say, I was sourced and thanked!
