I just wanted to post a couple of slideshows of our beloved community. The First is of the community's various gates, vistas, golf course, and a few homes. The Second is of compiled brochures and photos of Blackhawk when it was in its final phase of construction in 1986. I hope you enjoy..... I wanted to post the photos I had already. I want to create a comprehensive tour of the community in the near future, profiling homes our two country clubs, and the many social aspects of the neighborhood. Also, Blackhawk Plaza has changed greatly since i last blogged about it so i want to create an update for all of you... Stay tuned!

    Blackhawk since it's establishment has been a high earning and exclusive community. Even in 1986 Blackhawk was on the top 15 most affluent neighborhoods in the US, but now we're climbing the charts now at the number 7 spot among CNN Money's top 25 list. Dominating the top 25 national list is the Bay Area with Hillsborough(#1), Los Altos Hills (#3), Blackhawk(#7), Saratoga(#17), Piedmont(#21), and neighboring Alamo(#23). Here you can find complete data on our beloved community....     Personally I think that Blackhawk offers much more than many notable cities and communities. The general quality of life and casual living is unmatched anywhere in the nation. Here people can go to San Francisco on a whim or go to ski or  boat at their cabin in Tahoe. The Community is far away from the ...

      Sometimes it takes something new to appreciate something that is older. All of the new large developments in the surrounding cities of Danville and San Ramon have done just that. Now, There is a revived appreciation and demand within the town of Blackhawk. What was considered outdated is now considered traditional, unique, and even quaint.      The Country Club Community of Blackhawk was built on the principles of true luxury living to meet any lifestyle, from comfortable condos to multi-acre park estates. Many of these homes were constructed as dream estates detailed down to wall coverings and even china patterns. Now these building styles are rare or incredibly expensive to duplicate or even mimic. Such features include parquets, moldings of plaster, unique stonework or clever b...

Blackhawk Plaza is in a full overhaul this summer, now showing great progress. The $40 million remodel and expansion will enhance and modernize the old luxury shopping center from when it opened its doors eighteen years ago. Over a dozen unnamed stores are already signed to occupy spaces for the much anticipated grand re-opening.  Some are said to be national brands that are not already found in the East Bay or even the Bay Area. The old plaza was a luxury complex meant to draw shoppers from all around the Bay featuring its grand water park and bridges teaming with beautiful fish, floating ducks and swans. The focal point was the modern Smithsonian Institute Behring Automotive Museum for vehicle enthusiasts.  The Plaza boasted 210,000 square feet of shopping space encompassing 45 acres...

    Now that it is summer, and the market is moving don't let your home be overlooked. Staging your home has become as routine for selling a house as putting the sign in front. So embrace the concept, and get your home SOLD!                   Ten Helpful Staging Ideas: 1. First Approach     Many people pull up to a home to just drive away and never even step inside. We've all done it.     Make sure you can see your home. Thin out trees, remove shrubs... Make your hose appear larger don't let get dwarfed by overgrowth.     Make your front Porch Fresh. Paint your door a cheerful high gloss color and add new hardware and kick plates. Power wash the approach and use some elbow grease on those front light fixtures. On the porch lay down some fresh mats and some potted annual flowers to fresh...

The market- what does 2008 have in hold for everyone thinking of buying or selling a home? No one knows for sure. It comes down to this: A buyer has a want and a need. They want to purchase a home at a price that makes sense to him/her. When it comes to the seller it has to do with price, competiton, and motivation. Motivation is becoming huge in whether a deal will work out or not. If the sellers are more open about their motivation and trying to work out a price with the right terms for a buyer, everyone can come to terms and a contract is neogotiated and carried out.Patience- a lot of questions are necessary and the ability to access the situation so a transaction will occur and both buyer and seller are satisfied with the results ~Gail My Site
