30 Thanksgiving Thank Yous-Thankful For Mother Super-Agent Judy Carr  by San Jose Schools REALTOR® Michelle Carr Crowe Even as I daily help buyers and sellers buy and sell Silicon Valley homes, I am grateful for so many answered prayers and gifts.   Today I am thankful for my Mommy, the late great Silicon Valley super-agent Judy Carr.   Now it wasn’t easy growing up as the daughter of the great Judy Carr. My brother and I joked that everything in life had 2 ways-anyone else’s way or “the Judy way”.   As I’ve matured I realize and appreciate so much the strength of character it took for her to exact such standards for us.   Whether we liked it or not, she would make us figure out the solution and get it done.   I am grateful for her love, her faith in us and her commitment to family.   O...

30 Thanksgiving Thank Yous-For My Answered Prayer Husband Steve Crowe by San Jose REALTOR® Michelle Carr Crowe Each day in November, I’m sharing at least one thing for which I am thankful. Twenty-three years ago God answered the prayer of a young divorcee-“Just only send the right man for me and make it obvious and clear to me and everyone around me he is ‘the one’ for me.”   Then I went out dancing with my friend Lizzie Holmes. That very night I met the man I would marry. It wasn’t an angelic blast from above. In fact he didn’t seem to be all that into me-but we had a good conversation about God and even prayed together. Initially we weren’t attracted to each other (neither of us was each others’ “physical type”). But it seemed like he would be a good friend to me-the kind of person wh...

New Apple Corporation Head Quarters & Robert Vegas Bob Swetz 10-2-2014       New Apple Corporation Head Quarters & Robert Vegas Bob Swetz 10-2-2014   Well, it continues to look good for Vegas Bob getting hooked up on the New Apple Corporation Project in Silicon Valley in California.         Vegas Bob is very excited and knows that when this project starts up that he (WILL NOT) be able to take any photographs and videos. So for now enjoy some of these photo pics of drawings and or "click" on the Apple links below.         This New Apple Corporation Head Quarters is very wild looking, and the design looks like something out of a Sci-Fi movie. The building looks like a "Space Ship" and who really knows. The kind of money that Apple Corporation has, this might just be a Space Ship of the fu...

Hillbilly Humor, A Zinger From Yesterday's National Tell-a-Joke Day by Michelle Carr Crowe (With a big thank you to my friend Brenda whose birthday fell on National Tell-a-Joke Day).   After living in the remote wilderness of Kentucky all his life, an old hillbilly decided it was time to visit the big city.In one of the stores he picks up a mirror and looks in it. Not ever having seen one before, he remarked at the image staring back at him, "How about that! Here's a picture of my daddy."He bought the mirror thinking it was a picture of his daddy, but on the way home he remembered his wife didn't like his father. So he hung it in the barn, and every morning before leaving for the fields, he would go there and look at it.His wife began to get suspicious of these many trips to the barn. O...

The housing market in Santa Clara, CA, is showing some signs of improvement. Let's first look at the monthly absorption rate, which is a ratio between current inventory and closed sales during the month. It's a way of understanding the health of the market and is a hypothetical figure of how fast the current inventory would be sold off if no new homes came on the market and properties continued to close escrow at the present rate. The absorption rates for condos and houses in Santa Clara, graphed below, shows that single family homes have enjoyed a rate of less than 6 months over most of the year, which is quite good given the overall real estate market in Silicon Valley. (The National Association of Realtos says that under 6 months is a sellers market and over 6 months is a buyers mark...
