Keith Lutz posted this 2,253 Views

As land in and aroung Charlotte NC, dwindles, the builders must get smarter about how they build.  Usually that means going up as opposed to out.  Now builders are getting even wiser and building residential and commerical sites together.

Oakland Ca Real Estate posted this 1,100 Views

Fleet Week is always an interesting time in the Bay Area, because we get to see the Blue Angels perform. Last year was the first Fleet Week I attended, and I can say it was an impressive display.
