Thank You Vrushal Dongre & Adrita Bhor for Your Business and Trust by San Jose REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe Two of my favorite clients, Vrushal Dongre and Adrita Bhor should win the award for most savvy Silicon Valley purchase and sale of 2014.

2 Steps to Reduce Traffic, Accidents and Deaths in Cupertino  by Cupertino REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe The Cupertino community is brainstorming together over ways to reduce traffic, accidents and deaths in Cupertino, especially around schools including Kennedy, Lincoln and Monta Vista, in the wake of the recent traffic fatality of a Monta Vista High School student on October 27, 2014.
