Beyonce announced her world tour at the SuperBowl. Herman Chan announces his new web series Real Estate Real Simple for the San Francisco Chronicle...Okay, so it ain't exactly comparable, but hey, I can dream right? The series is Q&A sessions with readers from the SF Chronicle about housing and design. The webisode below is about decorating a living room with small mirrors. (I love the video introduction they made for me. Fancy!)
Ashley Madison, the infamous hook up site for married people seeking affairs, posted the top 10 cheating neighborhoods in San Francisco. SF Weekly reports: "San Francisco is a great place to have an extramarital affair, especially in the wealthy enclaves of the city, where you are most likely to find a cheating spouse". Hoity Toity Pac Heights, Fidi, & Marina Districts lead the pack. But you can't just blame the men. I know a whole lotta females who vulture these 'hoods hoping to marry up too! Just sayin'
Uh oh! The listing for 2845 Broadway at $38,500,000 was suddenly ripped from the MLS! Rumor has it the most expensive home in SF ( currently owned by the Sperlings) is actually (and finally!) under contract. 2845 Broadway was purchased for $32Min 2002, remodeling the 17,500 sq ft main home & 6,000 sq ft guest house soared over $20M...and it's not even finished! It will set back a buyer another $8-16 million to complete the build.
Per SocketSite, "Originally listed for $65,000,000 in 2006, if the sale of 2845 Broadway closes within 14 percent of its most recent list price it will be the most expensive home ever sold in San Francisco, relegating 2840 Broadway to the penultimate position at $33,000,000."
Please send me tips if you know any details about the deal or buyers!!
Silicon Valley is the hot bed of technology! ....But everyone wants to live in San Francisco. So corporations like EA, Yahoo, Apple, Facebook, Google have private shuttle systems to ferret their little worker bees to work and home. These are secret lines, but my peeps at Uptown Almanac have published it!
From Huffington Post: New research finds that this West Coast-East Coast culture clash isn't just media stereotyping. In fact, people living in the east coast city of Boston closely link their overall life satisfaction with how content they are with their own social status. In San Francisco, residents don't make the same connection, reflecting a more individualistic, free-to-be-me culture.

Um, ok. Now that Oakland snagged some hot press, SF adopts Oakland as a "sibling city", when normally SF eschews anything Oakland! I can't help it. I have to stick up for the underdog. "SF HuffingtonPost: Ode To Oakland: NYTimes Bestows Huge Honor On Our Sibling City."
Both cities are awesome in their own right, but honestly, sometimes SF is the step-sister who treats Oakland like an ugly illegit bastard child black sheep of the family. Well, guess what, Cinderella is going to the ball! Lol!
