About the owner: I am originally from England and Ireland and came to the bay area in the 80's. I have lived in many bay area cities, and my favorite places are Marin county and Berkeley. I presently live in Berkley and some of the time in Marin, and work as a real estate broker with Sotheby's International Realty.
