REAL EATS – Apple Fritter – San Mateo

REAL EATS – The beat on where to eat!
Hello! Thank you for reading REAL EATS, where my passion for Real Estate and food meet.  On our next adventure we visit….

Apple Fritter – San Mateo

My hubby and I are always on the quest for amazing breakfast joints.  Apple Fritter is no secret even if they are tucked under the 92.  Their doughnuts make my mouth water.  Their menu is fun and delicious – a combination of naughty and nice.  I’ve been here several names and never manage to snap a photo because I have to jump in – except for this one time – the stuffed french toast was to die for.  Worth every calorie.  Highly recommended.

Real Eats – Amazing Wok, San Carlos

REAL EATS – The beat on where to eat!

Hello! Thank you for reading REAL EATS, where my passion for Real Estate and food meet.  On our next adventure we visit….

Amazing Wok – In San Carlos

My hubby and I have enjoyed Amazing Wok since we started dating in 1998.  The place has changed a lot over the years and when the original owners sold it – we were a bit worried our favorite Chinese Food spot would change.  I am happy to report – Amazing Wok is still as delicious as ever.  Their potstickers are so good.  We enjoy popping over for lunch and the addition of a small salad was a nice surprise.  We’ve tried about every dish and they are all so delicious.  We head over when we want something spicy and savory and they serve it up hot and with a smile.  THANK YOU for keeping a good thing going!

Rin’s Bridal of San Carlos – The Beat on Where to Shop

With my 15 year wedding anniversary on the horizon – I’ve been walking down memory lane and realized that when I got married there was no Yelp so I am going to make up for lost time and do a little shout out to Rin’s Bridal of San Carlos.

Born and raised in San Carlos, I remember walking by Rin’s and admiring all the dresses – day dreaming of going in there and wearing them.  My first job at Wells Fargo on Laurel Street – Rin was one of my buinssess clients while I was still a teller.  Flash-forward to high school, my mom took to me to Rin’s to get all my prom dresses, flash-forward to my wedding day and I remember going with my mom, mother and sister-in-law to be and trying on all the dresses.  Rin still remembers me and if she remembers me after 15 years – I know she loves and cares for all her brides and customers with that level of care.  She had all the samples, great shoes and veils, we got everything we needed for our bridal party at Rin’s.  She is kind, knowledgeable about trends and what is best for you.  If you need a Glam Squad – head over to Rin’s in San Carlos!

Thank you Rin for being a staple of San Carlos quality and kindness.

Hello! Thank you for reading REAL EATS, where my passion for Real Estate and food meet.  On our next adventure we visit….

Bubble & Wrap Waffle in Redwood City

I love ice cream – I love waffles.  No wonder hubby made sure our date stopped at Bubble Wrap and Waffle on Broadway in Redwood City.  We had the s’mores and dreams.  The waffle is delicious – great batter, soft and crispy.  We need to come back and taste their savory menu.  It was delicious – I wanted more ice cream.  Worth a stop for a sweet treat!

REAL EATS – The beat on where to eat! Bravas!

REAL EATS

The beat on where to eat!

Next up – Bravas – Bar de Tapas – 420 Center Street, Healdsburg, Ca

Hello! Thank you for reading REAL EATS, the beat on where to eat. I thought I’d combine my love of good food with my passion for Real Estate and blog about local restaurants. I enjoy on sharing my favorite spots up and down the San Francisco Peninsula and beyond. I hope you have a chance to enjoy the amazing food our communities have to offer.

Curious what properties are going for in Healdsburg California – click HOMES FOR SALE

 

Bravas – Bar de Tapas

 

For this entry – I ventured away from the Bay Area and I hope you do too! My husband and I were enjoying the Wine Country for a little get-a-way and house hunting when we came upon Bravas. We used Yelp to help us narrow down the search close to our hotel. There were so many choices but for some reason I was drawn to Bravas. With a click we made a reservation and little did I know the experience would last me a lifetime.

I love tapas, little plates of goodness and a nice cocktail. Well, Bravas offered this and so much more. Nestled in a craftsman home converted into this restaurant – I instantly loved the décor and mixed home and bar feel. It was like hanging out in your friends really cool home.  With a bar at the center, an awesome remodel  of modern mixed with rustic. I truly enjoyed it the moment we walked in.

Where to begin! We started with sliders – the Duck Boccadillo (meatball) and Pork Cheek Bocca. Wow! The duck was tender and well seasoned. The savory sauce it was serviced with, tomato sofrito and green olive purée was excellent. The pork cheek was a new experience for me – I’d never had it before. Wonderful portion of pork cheek, dripping with flavor and served salsa verde and pequillo pepper.

Next we had the Creamy Chicken, Ham & Gruyere Cheese Croquetas. Oh My God. Little bites of fried heaven. I really cannot say enough. We savored these! Then we had a little vegetable intermission – the grilled Asparagus served with aioli and sprinkled with cheese.

On to the Skirt Steak, served with red onion marmalade and valdeón cheese – was a delicious! I truly enjoyed the marmalade; it was a nice surprise, meat cooked perfectly. And then, we had the Octopus! This by far was my most favorite dish in taste and presentation. Served with smoked paprika and olives was amazing. The seasoning spot on and the Octopus grilled perfectly!

And when we didn’t think we had any more room – we had to try the Cider Braised Chorizo served with fried Shishito Peppers. What a delight. The peppers were fresh and crispy, the chorizo had a good spice!

Now doesn’t that sound delicious! We coupled our dinner with Mojitos, laughter and good fun. One of my best nights with my man! A wonderful food experience! So if you find yourself in Healdsburg – make sure to detour over to Bravas!

The Caton Team Testimonials

Testimonials From Our Clients

Sabrina and team are fantastic.  Responsive, honest, transparent and efficient.  She’s also well-connected in the real estate community on the peninsula – whether buying or selling, you can’t ask for better representation.  I highly recommned her!

– Kenny H.

 

“Very honest.”

– Fredric & Heather R.

 

Sabrina and Sue are a wonderful team. I never once felt ignored or at a loss. They held my hand the entire time and I’m so grateful for their help and knowledge in making this process so easy.

To future clients of The Caton Team,

The Caton Team is made up of Susan Caton and Sabrina Caton, or as I like to refer to them as the Dynamic Duo of Real Estate. They are trustworthy, honest, straight-forward, and experts in the real estate business. I might be a little biased, because of my friendship with them, but nothing will test a friendship more than the process of buying and selling a home. As everyone knows when you sell your home you want the most money for the least amount of effort and you want the process to be quick and smooth. The Caton Team will make sure you have all of the necessary information and knowledge to understand how to stage your home and what the process will be along with a realistic timeline of what you can expect. If you follow their directions and listen to what they say, your home selling experience will be painless and quick. For us this ended up being less than a week with our home selling for more than what we expected. The entire process from filling out the required paperwork to negotiating went smoothly and was overall painless on our end. At the end of the day we got more than what we wanted and were in a great position to start hunting for a new home.

This brings me to how The Caton Team helped us buy a new home for what we wanted, while making sure that we got the home that we wanted. Since we had already bought and sold our first home with The Caton Team, using them again to buy another house did not require much thought, actually required no thought. We went into the process wanting the best of the best in the best location, because who does not want that for themselves? They were kind enough to listen to our wants and desires and showed us what we could afford in the areas we were looking. It took a few homes to realize that our expectations were not in sync with the market, because currently in early 2015 homes are going like hot cakes and for more than what they are listed at by a fair amount.

This is when we sat down again and started looking at other areas that were just as nice, but we had ignored initially. The important part here is while they mentioned this information early on, they allowed us to realize it on our own that we needed to look outside of our ideal areas if we wanted our dream house. Once we realized what they were saying we expanded our search and found the home that we wanted. After our initial open house we contacted The Caton Team and informed them that we found the home that we wanted. This is when The Caton Team sprang into action, they immediately started requesting all of the disclosures from the seller’s agent and contacted the seller’s agent to gain any additional knowledge that might not be in the supplied paperwork. They then shared this information openly with us, as one would expect, and started laying down the groundwork of what we would need to do if we truly wanted this house. They supplied us with the tools necessary to make an informed decision and provided us with comparable sales (COMPS) in that particular area, so that we would have an idea of what houses were selling for and where the market was heading (spoiler alert, market was only going upwards). Their attention to detail and understanding of the market allowed us to make the best offer we could, while not overbidding or underbidding and making sure that we would have our offer accepted. As you have already guessed, our offer was accepted almost immediately and we are now homeowners of a home that we wanted in an area that is ideal.

If you have made it this far, then you realize why The Caton Team is really The Dynamic Duo of Real Estate. They make sure you are provided with the proper tools and information to make the best decision for yourself. They will work tirelessly with you and will not be a 9-5 agent, they will be honest, trustworthy, and straight-forward. You will not feel like you are getting the short-end of the deal and at the end of the day you will feel great about your decision to work with The Caton Team.

-The Liere Family

 

“Sabrina and Susan of Berkshire Hathaway, were the perfect real estate agents for me. As a first-time buyer, I had very little knowledge of how the process of purchasing a home actually worked. They are friendly, approachable, patient, strategic and persistent. Sabrina maintained great communication throughout the entire experience. They always got back to me quickly and they were willing to meet or discuss potential condos that I selected as potential buys. She even recommended a lending agent in the area, which I ended up using. Without them edging me along, I’m fairly certain I would have given up, thinking this whole “buying a house” ordeal was not for me. It’s simply too difficult for a working person to complete on their own.

Now that I have purchased my condo, I’m happy to see that Sabrina is still involved. She has collected my new keys and mail, answered my escrow questions and will do the final walk through. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or use them again.”

– Ashley

 

“I worked with Sabrina and Sue a few years back and they were so professional. I was going thru a divorce and had to sell my condo. I was beyond upset. (Not because of the divorce but selling the condo) haha… Thru this difficult time they were so amazing and made me feel at ease. The housing market at that time was not the best but they did their best to make sure I got a good deal.  The condo wasn’t on the market for too long and I was able to sell it for a decent price. Thank you to both for making that transition in my life a little easier. Definitely will be using them again if and ever I can buy again.”

-Elena

 

“We had a great experience buying a house through the Caton team. Sabrina and Susan were patient in answering our many questions, and helped guide us in the offer process to help win a bid on our second offer even in this crazy market! They are easy to get in touch with over email, text, or phone, and detail oriented to make sure nothing fell through the cracks. We’d highly recommend them!”

-Katherine

 

Hi Susan and Sabrina,

I just thought I’d take a moment to write you both to say how much of a pleasure it has been to once again have had another successful property transaction come to fruition with you both at the helm (yay, three now)!

I can’t say enough how Victor and I have been so happy you’ve been our representatives in both our buying and selling transactions, and that your dedication and hard work, creativity and professionalism have always made a world of difference all throughout the process of buying and selling our homes. From the smallest details like your fantastic web page ads and captioning to your weekly and continuous updates and presence at the property for showings and repairs. You’ve left nothing to chance!

It’s clear that experience counts, and your research and broad-based knowledge of the local real estate and larger markets in general, have always provided us with a solid backdrop from which we could make our decisions. You’ve always provided us with good information, solid recommendations, and I’m grateful that we had you both as our representatives.

Additionally, I want to say on a personal note, that you are both so considerate and thoughtful, and I always feel that we are in good hands when you’re on the job.  Thank you again for this recent and very successful sale of our property, and we look forward to our continued relationship with you in future transactions.

I did not have your Broker’s contact information, but if you would please forward him/her this e-mail, I’d appreciate it, because I’d like them to know that you have permanent fans!

Thanks again,  Helen and Victor

 

“Susan and Sabrina, The Caton (Dream)Team –

Thirteen years ago, we met Susan Caton who so kindly helped us find our first home in the Bay Area.  She was mindful of our budget and attentive to our wish list.  We landed a great starter home fit to our needs and close to work.  In 2012, when it came time to relocate into a neighborhood with great schools, we once again called upon Susan, who now was partner with her daughter-in-law, Sabrina, to find the right house for our growing family.  First, Susan and Sabrina helped sell our house within 2 weeks time at a price within our expectations.  Then, they delivered BIG by helping us find our next dream home in a competitive market with little time to spare knowing Facebook millionaires would soon bring stiff competition to the housing market.  All along, even when our first two offers fell through, Susan and Sabrina helped us keep our focus and always had our best interest in mind.  Settling for less than our hearts desired was not the answer, and our patience combined with our trust in Susan and Sabrina paid off when we stumbled upon our dream home.  We can honestly say that working with The Caton Dream Team has been a true pleasure as it has enabled us to find a wonderful place to call home, not only once, but twice.  When the time comes, we will gladly call upon their services again, and we highly recommend them to anyone looking to find their first or next dream home.”

– Fredric and Heather R.

 

“I recently worked with The Caton team (Sabrina and Sue) to purchase my first home. I was referred to the team by a co-worker who had just purchased a condo with them. He had a great experience, and recommended them for their honesty, responsiveness and availability (even at night and weekends). I found this assessment to be 100% true.

I first met Sabrina and Sue when I was interviewing realtors. They recommended I come to their office for the interview. They were the only ones to recommend this, which already set them apart in my mind. During the interview they shared their process and approach and how our relationship would work. I decided to work with the Caton team for several reasons. 1) A great referral 2) Their open and honest personalities 3) Their sincere concern that I find exactly what I am looking for 3) Their combined years of experience and specialization in the peninsula.

After our first meeting, they set up their home search for the criteria we discussed. Part way through the search, my criteria changed, and they updated the search for the new criteria. Periodically, they would check in to see if I saw anything that I liked. We narrowed the search by going through what I liked and disliked about each listing that I reviewed online.

Sabrina and Sue answered all of my questions along the process. They came to the home inspection and to sign papers at title company. The title company representative that I signed papers with commented on how lucky I was to have my realtors there, looking out for my best interests, as a lot of first time buyers come alone, signing papers they don’t understand.

After receiving keys to my new home, the Caton team continued to support me. They referred me to painters their colleagues had worked with and found multiple contractors who would do the work I needed.

Sabrina and Sue are really easy to work with. It’s like talking with friends when I reach out to them. They are very approachable, trust worthy and hard working. They always answer questions I have or research to find the answers if they do not have them right away. I highly recommend them and will use them again for future real estate needs.”

– CJ T.

 

“The Caton team is awesome! Susan and Sabrina were an awesome fit for my husband and I as first-time homebuyers, but I highly recommend them for anyone at any stage of buying a home. They went above and beyond to help us locate a wonderful home and took us step by step through the often confusing short sale process. It felt less like we were working with realtors and more like we were working with good friends or family! Thank you, thank you, Sabrina and Susan!”

-Marie B.

 

“If anyone can get it done quickly it would be you two. By far the best Realtors west of the Mississippi.”

– Josh L.

 

“The Caton Team is A-Number-One in our book.  Susan and Sabrina are consummate Pros.  They do exhaustive research, they know how to price a home in today’s competitive market, and they know how to stage a home for maximum buyer appeal.  They’ve sold two homes for us, and we’re completely satisfied with everything they do.  You go, girls!”

-Russ & Elena H.

 

“I met Sabrina and Susan during our recent rental home search.  As we were not prepared for a move (current homeowners informed us that they were selling the house after 1 year of listing the home as a rental) we needed to act quickly and diligently to find our new home.  My initial communications were with Sabrina as she was hosting an open house.  Her emails were prompt and friendly and I got to know her a bit through email.  When I met up with her for the open house, she was just as friendly in person as was her partner, Susan.  They were welcoming throughout the process and provided wonderful thorough follow up on behalf of the homeowner.  Susan made herself available on a Saturday morning for the signing of the lease and has been in contact with us as we prepare for the move-in.  We have very much enjoyed working with the Caton Team and would recommend them for rental guidance and hopefully in the near future, home ownership!”

“The Caton team has helped me find my perfect condo within a month of looking! And then later found me great tenants to rent it out. They work quickly and are very professional. Plus, these are just a pair of wonderful women to be around. They are very trustworthy and have their Clients’ best interest in mind. I will be using them again for all my real estate needs, and I recommend them to everyone else! Thank you so much!”

-Caitlin G.

“I’m pretty sure without The Caton Team we wouldn’t have been able to buy our house. We started looking right before the housing market crashed and was going back and forth on qualifying for a loan.   They made it happen-it’s a long story and I can make short and sweet. Please use The Caton Team for you house buying needs!  Really!”

– Nisi C.

 

“I can’t say enough about what an incredibly professional job Sabrina did; she went above and beyond the call of duty! We would not be in our house today were it not for her tireless efforts. She’s so knowledgeable and works tenaciously for her clients. 
Thank you Sabrina!

“Great working with you guys!”

“I have worked with many realtors during my 15 years as a mortgage broker and Sabrina Caton is by far one of the best real estate agents I have ever had the pleasure of working with on a number of purchase transactions over the years. She is upbeat and personable with a great sense of humor. She consistently works with her clients best interests in mind and is not afraid to tackle the tough deals. I have personally seen her negotiate to lower the purchase price by $25,000 after the contract was already signed when the buyers’ appraisal came in below the purchase price. You can count on Sabrina for high energy, professional real estate services!”
