My New Willow Glen Listing | 684 Willow Street, San Jose

 
If you’ve never heard of Willow Glen, I’ll sum it up for you in one word—charming. You will hear this word time and again if you’re ever looking at properties in this area. Residents of Willow Glen take pride in its historic and family-friendly neighborhood evidenced by their well-manicured gardens and beautifully restored Victorian and craftsman homes. On a walk down Lincoln Avenue, you will notice placards describing the town’s fascinating history from the early 1900s. Every now and then, you might spot a vehicle or two with WG decals and license plate frames representative of their fondness for this neighborhood.

684 Willow Street, in particular, is a home that I hold near and dear to my heart. It reminds me of my more youthful days when my friends and I were young professionals just starting out and carefree. And, one by one, we were growing up—evolving into homeowners. The seller of this home was one of the first in my circle of friends to take the leap into home ownership and we celebrated this significant milestone with paint parties and were markedly rewarded with pizza! Here I am, earning my pizza 7 years ago. ↓

This was a home where my friends and I congregated, celebrated holidays together, and traded stories.

I remember one particular day when I was homesick on a business trip in China. It was Thanksgiving Day, and my friends connected with me via google video chat (because that’s how we rolled back then). They set me (the laptop) on the dinner table so that I could remotely join in on the fun. I was essentially watching everyone eat the most delicious-looking food ever because it was 2am where I was. Yet, I felt right at home 6,000 miles away. I will never forget that special day when I remotely spent Thanksgiving Day at 684 Willow Street with my best friends.

Countless happy memories have been made in this well-maintained and lovingly cared for residence. It is so much more than its double sink vanity, granite countertops, and attached 2-car garage. It’s a home that brings family and friends together and a remarkable place to be. Come by the open house this weekend so that you can see for yourself.

I thought I’d leave you with a very fitting song of my feeling toward this house. 🙂 ↓

 

My New Campbell Listing | 711 Hamann Drive, San Jose

 

There are 3 key features that buyers are always looking for—a safe neighborhood, excellent schools, and a home that allows their family room to grow. 711 Hamann Drive encompasses all of these key features and more!IMG_7463_HDR-label

When you’re cruising down Hamann Drive, you will notice large, mature trees lining a peaceful street with minimal traffic. This block has no outlet to busy roads. Therefore, any vehicles driving through are most likely your neighbors.

Once you step inside the home, you will notice a contemporary kitchen featuring gorgeous walnut countertops and a very inviting living room with windows galore. The dining area, family room, and kitchen are all adjacent to one another making it ideal for entertaining guests (and keeping a close eye on those kids!). IMG_7723_HDR

IMG_7709_HDRThis home is well laid out with 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms–one of which is a master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom.

On weekends, you will notice neighborhood kids playing basketball in their driveways and families taking a stroll around the block. One street over is Harker (Private) School’s expansive grassy field and tennis courts and Starbird Park where neighbors flock to on weekends. The public schools assigned to this home are excellent and rated 9/10 at Greatschools.org.

Introducing My New Willow Glen Listing | 2881 Meridian Avenue #108 in San Jose

 

The first time I entered the main lobby of this community, I was blown away by the grand entrance, and felt as if I was on vacation at a 5-star resort! Once inside of the residence, I was further impressed by the high ceilings, wide open floor plan, and an immensely spacious master suite. Whether I was there working in the morning, afternoon, evenings on weekdays or weekends, it was surprisingly quiet and very peaceful.

Having been built just nine years ago, cooling and heating are highly efficient, windows and doors are airtight, and the walls and ceilings are noticeably well-insulated. If you’re looking for a home that requires little to no effort to maintain and completely move-in-ready, look no further. This is where you want to be.

Situated in the southern part of Willow Glen, this development is surrounded by million dollar homes and is noted for its family-oriented and charming downtown area. The availability of this home presents an opportunity to live in Willow Glen without that million dollar price tag. (Yes, please!)↓

Like any planned urban development, a homeowner’s association exists to keep the common areas meticulously clean and maintained to preserve its overall value. Furthermore, residents at Willow Glen Place enjoy a pool and jacuzzi (open until 11pm!), a clubhouse for parties and guests, an all inclusive gym, a courtyard with a zen-like garden, and an impressive outdoor fireplace to entertain your guests.

I will be at 2881 Meridian Avenue #108 in San Jose this weekend for open house from 1 to 4pm. Even if you’re not actively looking to purchase at the moment, drop by anyway to say hi and keep me company! Thank you for your time, and I hope to see you this weekend!
