They are relocating from Southern California to Northern California. Their wish list: Minimum of 2800 sq ft 3-car garage Newer home in a PUD (planned unit development) 4 bedrooms, 3 baths $1M range They want to be in contract as soon as possible The wife wanted a home that is near her place of work, preferably within 15 minutes drive in Alameda.
