We first met the seller of 730 Stannage back in early June of this year.  Her dad had just passed away and she was looking for guidance as to what to do with the family house.  Her family moved into the house nearly 60 years ago.  It was home to many family parties, neighborhood “Solano Stroll” parties, eating guavas from the [...]
