Well, here we are at the end of another year and, what a year it has been!   As the clock strikes midnight tonight it is a good time to decide who we wish to become in the New Year and how we wish to create positive changes in our world.  After all, it does start with each of us.  
To celebrate the end of the year I have prepared the 2010 Real Estate summary for San Carlos.  Real Estate sales were up in every quarter of 2010 as compared to 2009 as you will see below.

I am optimistic that the San Carlos Scenic District Initiative (now called Pueblo Escenico)  will become reality in 2011.  In my opinion, there is no better way to show respect for the beautiful Mother Nature that surrounds us here in San Carlos.  It is also a huge benefit to those of you that are looking for a home to buy or wishing to sell a property. 
In the words of Gandhi “Be the change you want to see in the world.”  Happy New Year and see you in 2011!
