Diane Pfeffer, Realtor - My first choice for residential
real estate agent without exception or reservation. Call me and I shall
wax poetic on her endless list of virtues and qualities. She is an agent with
the Los Gatos office of Alain Pinel Realtors, and so much more.
Shady Shakespeare - They produce free "Shakespeare in the Park."
Good productions, lovely people, wonderful times, beautiful setting and
Shakespeare. This could define life.
Shakespeare Santa Cruz - One of the nation's best
Shakespeare repertory company run by the very talented and quite charming Paul
Whitworth. Please catch their winter production as well. Delightful "panto"
shows for the whole family. You will laugh.
Ailsa Barrett - She is a friend who also happens to be a
photographer and mosaic artist, mother, and an appraiser (somehow that all
Theatre Bay Area - Publication and hard working staff that
bring a monthly magazine covering the Bay Area theatre scene. A must have
source for any theatre professional or enthusiast. My personal thanks go out
to Dale Albright, a gentleman and a helpful soul.
FREA - Foundation of Real Estate Appraisers. Good source
for continuing education and errors and omissions insurance for real estate
Karen Mann, SRA, ASA, and IFA - I have known Karen for 20
years and you simply could not meet a finer person or a better appraiser. I
refer any residential appraisal request that I cannot accept myself (timing or
outside of my territory) to her company.
Julia Vander Wyk - Julia is an artist, avid bike rider and
web designer who also loves to sing German Art Songs (possibly all at the same
time). She does my graphics work and looks great in a hat plus she this thing
Melony Vance - She is a very special friend who owns a
small, delightful book store in Southern California. If you hate the way
bookstores have been taken over by larger corporations and you want to make a
statement in support of community and small business then please use her store
to order your books, or visit her store. She is a great source for a good
conversation and reading recommendations, especially for children.
