Recently I have been volunteering at the Second Harvest Food Bank and I have enjoyed the joy of giving back. Â Life is full of challenges and there is something about sorting cans and fruit that puts everything in perspective.

I came across this video from a company that makes high tech glass, advertising how their products can be incorporated into all aspects of our lives.
With the continued explosion of technological advancements, being â€œconnected 24/7â€, and the blurring the lines between home and work I have had a real interest in recent years on how to better integrate technology into the design of homes. (more…)

All of this talk about the iPad2 selling out by Sunday morning makes us wish we waited just a little longer to get our first company iPad.
We are set to use our first iPad (an iPad1) in a sales office at The Enclave at Waverly Park in a few weeks. Â Guests will be able to sign-up to receive an ebrochure. Â Plus we’ve loaded it with photos. Â Oh, and our website is formatted for iPad viewing too! Â (check it out from your iPad)
We’d love to be able to use even more features on the iPad – like viewing our smartPLANs, but it would need to have Flash, hint, hint Apple. Â If you haven’t played with the floorplans at our communities on our website, it’s a must.

Â We have several more communities coming soon â€“ Creekside at Saratoga in Saratoga and Roubion in San Ramon. Â And, of course we are working on even more new communities.

As we get ready to enjoy Thanksgiving with our families, we realize that we have a lot for which we can be thankful.Â This year has been fraught with challenges for many and we havenâ€™t been immune to those challenges.Â We are a smaller company this year that we were last year.
Weâ€™re fortunate to have a family like atmosphere that enabled our team to rise to the new challenges by taking on new responsibilities to exceed our goals.Â Â Weâ€™re even more fortunate to have an executive team that has helped us navigate these times through carefully navigating the business needs to mentoring the team to successfully achieve new goals.
There has been a lot of excitement for our company on a personal front as well â€“ several new engagements, a few new babies plus a few on the way, several new homeowners, and much more.
