The Morgan Hill Chamber of Commerce held the 17th annual 'Taste of Morgan Hill' celebration on Sept 23rd and 24th. It was a great time for residents and visitors alike to say good-bye to the summer season. The celebration was focused on family and fun, a perfect example of what so much of us love...

New and aspiring agents want to know how to make it big in this business.Well, if we zoom out far enough, there is a kind of magic bullet out there. I suppos...

It was a classic case of supply and demand where the demand was high and the supply just could barely keep up.Times have changed, in my area a...
