We got to know John a little better when catching up with him about his Zephyr anniversary.

1. What city/neighborhood do you live in & why? How long have you lived there and what do you love best about it?

“I have lived in Westwood Highland Area for more than 13 years. My house has the style that I love and my family likes it as well–it is a fully-detached, Spanish style. This fantastic neighborhood is very unique; you can park your car on the street without worrying about getting a parking ticket, because there is no street cleaning. And all of the neighbors keeps their properties very clean.”

2. What neighborhood have you seen change most in the Bay Area?

“This neighborhood has changed a lot, and the prices have been increased really high. I think that a small city around San Francisco that has the best value for the property is Vallejo, or Livermore. Vallejo has nice homes with cheap prices, and Livermore has beautiful large homes with affordable prices.”
