Best is a really subjective question and is the one that gets agents into trouble. A lot of it depends on your lifestyle, values and the things you want to find in a community. Brentwood is in my opinion the best community for me. There is a quality of life in a city that is healthy financial. decent schools and good police force. Lots of things to do for my family. Best of all it is affordable compared to other communities in central county.

Other people feel it is too expensive compared to Oakley or Antioch. There are people in Central County who feel East County is too far away for them. It is very subjective.

Please contract me if you have any questions. I am a Brentwood Broker.

Good Afternoon. I can totally relate to what you are feeling. The economic situation in this country is so uncertain, and people are having the hardest time making financial decisions. If you absolutely feel that it is not the time, you should listen to your gut. I will tell you that California, especially part of the Bay Area are a bargain, but it is not as easy as it used to be. There are a lot of ins and outs dealing with foreclosed properties, which are great deals, but you have to be well represented in your dealings. Do I think you are worrying to much, no however, look at all the options, good or bad and go from there. I know it is old school, but make a pros and cons list. It really does help. If you are interested in speaking with me further, my contact information is on my website. ... more

Dear A.M.,
I am sorry to hear about your predicament. Is your home in the development just off Sand Creek Road? I sold one in there last year, and that owner had a very good response getting some issues addressed by the builder. Since it sounds like you have come to the end of the proverbial rope, my suggestion would be to try to remove yourself from the picture as much as possible (putting the dispute in the hands of an attorney). That way you can take a deep breath and hopefully get rid of some of the stress this has put you under. An arbitration may be a more advantageous way to resolve things than trying to jump onboard a class action law suit. Realtors are not attorneys and can not give legal advise, so please contact an attorney to discuss all your options. It will be money well spent.
