2014 Save Mount Diablo Scholastic Photo Contest

 ”I believe we should save Mt. Diablo because Mt. Diablo is incredibly beautiful and has animals who depend on their home there.” – Annie McClain (Lafayette resident and Stanley Middle School student)

 

Annie McClain is my niece and I’m super proud of her. Mt Diablo is a huge draw to the East Bay and something that makes everyone smile often. In real estate, amazing views of Mt Diablo are proudly picture framed in windows and can add a great deal of value to a home. Our recent pending on East View is a perfect testament to this!
