Golden Ticket!

When I went to Oxbridge House in San Francisco, I felt like I must have gotten a golden ticket. I felt like Charlie in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory jumping through the streets in my pajamas. Well, it wasn’t quite like that– I was pretty excited though.

The reason I was so excited was because when I went to Oxbridge House, I got a GREAT deal for my gold bullion. I had considered it a great investment for a long time, but it was time for me to cash it in. I was glad that I chose Oxbridge House too, because they gave me the most I’ve ever gotten for gold before!

I feel very lucky to have found the best place to sell gold in San Francisco right when I was about to sell! I tend to be a fatalist about these things, but I think that it was just meant to be! I would definitely recommend Oxbridge House to a friend– and I already have!

From San Francisco to Roseville

Recently, I came up with the idea to expand my business to the Sacramento area from San Francisco. I had built a pretty solid infrastructure in San Francisco, so I called CBRE in Sacramento to see if I could get some decent property in the surrounding areas. They were extremely helpful to me during the process of expanding my business.

Working with CBRE was integral to my business expansion to Roseville because I wasn’t originally planning to set up shop there at all. I was hoping more for a downtown location, something more centrally located. But CBRE told me that the demographic I was looking for is primarily located in Roseville.

Being from San Francisco, it was really nice to have a realty company like CBRE that knew more about my new location than me. I don’t think I would have had the success I did without CBRE by my side. They were truly a game-changer!

Seattle —-> San Francisco

Earlier this year, I made a big move to San Francisco. I’m from Seattle, so I chose a local mover Local Seattle Movers WA to help me make my journey all the way down to Northern California. I was told San Francisco wouldn’t be all that much different from Seattle, but I think it absolutely is. And I love it completely.

Although I love how casual and friendly the Northwest is, I think I’ve always belonged in San Francisco. I just love how everyone dresses, and I love the culture! The food, especially, is my favorite part. The Mexican food in San Francisco is absolutely to DIE for. I was so excited that I was moving and that I wouldn’t have to do the hard part at all!

Puget Sound Movers, as a mover Seattle, were really great and I was pretty excited that I was getting help the entire way. I really couldn’t imagine making the journey from Seattle to San Francisco multiple times. Especially because I was going to be making the journey on my own. It was a little more expensive to do it this way, but I was glad that it meant everything would be taken care of.

Money out the window– Literally!

No matter what I tried, there was no way we could properly seal off the front windows to our house. It’s possible that when the last earthquake rocked our house, the house has never been the same. Even when we have the windows closed, we were still feeling the draft from the outside– that’s when we decided it was time to give California Window Masters a call and get our windows replaced.

We didn’t want to spend the money on new windows, but we also recognized that we were losing money by not making sure that air couldn’t get into our home. In effect, we were wasting so much energy (and therefore, money) on heating and/or cooling our house because money was just going straight out the window– quite literally!

So it was time for us to bite the bullet and finally commit to buying replacement windows in San Jose. And as it turned out– they weren’t even that expensive anyway! And they looked 100 times better than the old windows we had before. We certainly learned our lesson!

Gold Selling for Dummies

Not long ago it was my first time selling gold. I was low on cash, but had a large supply of gold chains and necklaces that I had been given by various family members. I was never going to wear them, so I took them to Gold Coins San Francisco in San Francisco. There, I learned just how valuable gold actually is.

Oxbridge House has been around for years and they have a lot of experience, so I chose them when I needed someone to buy my gold in San Francisco. They have built a trusted reputation because they work hard to make sure you are treated honestly and with respect. It’s not easy to find someone you trust in the gold-buying business, but Oxbridge House is certainly one of them.

I am so glad that I found Oxbridge House because I was really excited about the fact that I would be able to get exactly what I deserved. I even took my gold necklaces to another shop and they were going to give me so much less than Oxbridge House was. Surely, they didn’t think I was a dummy!

Moving Up In San Francisco

I got a raise recently and things at work were going really well. I had been living in a small apartment in an ok part of town for a while but decided with my extra income it was time to move to a better area, closer to my friends. I found a great place and was ready to schedule my move. I checked out Yelp for a great moving company in San Francisco and was immediately blown away by Golden Bay Relocation’s Yelp Movers San Francisco page. They have 5 stars with over 160 reviews!

They scheduled my move with no problem. They quoted me right on the phone based on the size of my apartment and how many items I had. They even take care of packing everything up for you. I was so happy to not have to scrounge around looking for boxes and buy tape and supplies to pack everything up myself. Not to mention how much time I’d be saving.

They showed up right on time and worked like a boss. They were so fast. They make an incredible team, you can tell they’ve been doing this for a long time. They got everything packed up and moved down to the truck in half the time I expected it to take them. Then they got everything moved to the new place, and placed the big items where I asked them to. Awesome company. They saved me from a huge moving headache!

The Only Bay Area Vending Machine Company for Us

San Francisco Bay Area Vending Machines operates out of San Francisco and they were the first and only vending company in San Francisco that we contacted. As a busy office manager working for a law firm in San Francisco, it was important to me that I find a great company for vending machines in record time.

Not only did Corporate Cuisine get back to me right away, they also were extremely helpful in planning what snacks I should provide to the people in my office. They told me what was popular, what was trendy, and what was actually delicious. The people at Corporate Cuisine weren’t afraid to talk to me for a long time about vending machines in San Francisco.

I went with Corporate Cuisine because I was sure that there would probably not be any other vending machine company that would offer such comprehensive services and spend so much time explaining how their system works and what snacks are the best to order. Corporate Cuisine was pretty much the only company I wanted to work with.

It only took a few days for things to be ready for set-up and delivery. The whole process of hiring them didn’t take very long at all and I am very impressed with our new vending machines. They are easy to use, they aren’t unsightly, and they have a great company behind them. I recommend them!

Moving My Business

My small business has been growing like crazy, and it was time for us to move into a bigger office. I checked out some moving companies on Google+ and immediately took notice of Golden Bay Relocation. They have great reviews from satisfied customers in San Francisco and have been around since 1992, so they’ve got it down. I gave them a call and explained the type of move I needed, and they gave me a quote.

They arrived promptly and got straight to work. They packed everything up for us so I literally didn’t have to raise a finger. They had all of the proper supplies and equipment, and had it down to a science. They knew which items to load first, how to care properly for the items to keep them same from damage, and they did it all so fast!

Once everything was loaded and we headed to the new location about 20 minutes away, they unloaded everything where we wanted it to go. I was able to direct them on where certain items should be placed and they got everything put into place. If I had to do that on my own, it would have been a huge mess. I’m so grateful for the incredible service we received from Golden Bay Relocation. They make a huge difference.

Vending Happy!

San Francisco Bay Area Vending Machines was at the top of our list of phone calls to make in renting a vending machine for our office, though it was largely because it came first in the alphabetical list of eight other companies. But I’m glad we called them first because they had a great selection and excellent customer service, especially better than what we had before.

What I liked about Bay Area Vending Machines is that they were really available and helpful over the phone, unlike the other company we had used previously. It seemed that whenever we ran out of snacks, we couldn’t get them to call us back and we were often frustrated about that.

Instead, Bay Area Vending Machines was really helpful and called us back right away even when we just had one or two questions for them. They also were wiling to spend a lot of time figuring out a pricing plan that was best for us. Our old company left it solely for us to decide.

Another thing I liked about Bay Area Vending Machines was that they have a great selection of snacks from healthy to more traditional snacks that you normally see in a vending machine. I was pretty excited that they had a variety of options to choose from that everyone would be happy about. Not everyone was excited about getting another vending machine—they didn’t think it would be healthy at all.

But because Bay Area Vending Machines provided a lot of options, even the naysayers in the office were happy to be getting vending machines full of alternative options like granola bars and low calorie snacks instead of high calories, salt and sugar laden snack foods.

With Bay Area Vending Machines, everyone is happy, both management and employees.

Hiring a Nanny in San Francisco

Living in San Francisco, it is hard to find a nanny who is both experienced and qualified on your own. That’s why I entrusted the job of finding a San Francisco nanny to A Nanny on the Net.

A friend of mine had worked with A Nanny on the Net recently when she was looking for a nanny for her twin daughters and was extremely happy with her nanny.  I didn’t want to hire anyone that wasn’t vetted and screened by an absolute professional.

Although I trusted my friend enough to hire A Nanny on the Net without performing any additional research, I also looked at their website to see what they were all about. I really liked what I saw because it seemed that they were really selective in the nannies they matched with nannies.

They also put a lot of stress on the fact that they only hire nannies who are career nannies and have extensive training and experience. I was pretty glad to know that there were also multiple levels so I could potentially have a nanny who had a degree or even a teacher’s credential.

I was really impressed that A Nanny on the Net also has extensive experience (20 years) in hiring nannies for families. With that much experience, I imagine that they would be pretty good at hiring the right nanny for the job.

After using A Nanny on the Net to hire my San Francisco nanny, I was really pleased with the nanny who was placed with us. She is friendly, smart and great with my son. I couldn’t imagine entrusting anyone else with my child!
