Major League Baseball players are opening up about what home means to them. Check out this interview with the CC Sabathia and his wife Amber, a busy mother of four and philanthropist/entrepreneur.

The family lived in Fairfield, California outside his hometown of Vallejo, California near San Francisco until he signed with the Yankees. Then the family moved to Alpine, New Jersey. The family loves life in New Jersey and being so close to New York City. Nevertheless, Sabathia remains connected to his hometown. On Friday January 27, 2012, Vallejo High School honored Sabathia by declaring it “CC Sabathia Day” and renaming the school’s baseball field in his honor.

Carsten Charles “CC” Sabathia Jr (born July 21, 1980) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball (MLB). Upon signing with the Yankees prior to the 2009 season, Sabathia became the highest-paid pitcher in MLB history. Currently in his 13th year as a major league pitcher, Sabathia has never had more losses than wins in a season.

Pints for Polio

Here is a fun event which will take place Saturday May 17th at the Brazos Valley Brewing Company located at 201 1st Street in downtown Brenham, TX. It’s called “Pints for Polio” and is hosted by the Brenham & Washington County Rotary Clubs. The Bill Gates Foundation is a huge advocate for eradicating  polio world-wide, therefore they donate $2 for every $1 raised locally.

Here’s how it works: You pay $20 and receive a beer mug and three beer tickets and also enjoy live music and light snacks in the beautiful courtyard; while enjoying the company of friends and community members.  

It’s a win-win! So come on out this Saturday May 17th; 4:00 pm-10:00 pm ‘Come and Go’

The Benefits of Homeownership

On September 10, 2013, in Coldwell Banker, by admin

Did you see this infographic on HouseLogic’s website? It’s a great time to own a home. Any of our Realtors would love to help you find your dream home!

 Infographic Benefits Homeownership_75469be0403817a5ce36a9bb01295469

 

Have you heard the news? We’ll be following the contest and look forward to seeing the videos! Straight from Coldwell Banker’s Blue Matter blog:

“The true value of a home. Expressed around the world.

That is the theme of what will be a first in the real estate industry. For the next 3 weeks, Coldwell Banker Real Estate is going to share what “home” truly means not just in the US, but across the globe. A few months ago we worked with a company called, MoFilm, to commission the creation of a series of 10 videos that asked filmmakers to share with us what the value of a home is in their country. We received dozens of videos from the likes of China, India, Brazil, Mexico, Spain, Portugal, Africa, Great Britain, Canada and more.

We selected 10 videos as winners and we will be unveiling one video a day starting on September 9. There are some amazing stories of home in this selection. What’s really interesting is how each video is different in the details, but the overarching concept remains the same: home is a place we love.

After the 10 international videos, we’ll continue the film festival by premiering 2 new episodes of our luxury home series World’s Most Expensive Homes. We’ve been to South Beach and Aspen in our first to episodes, but in Episode 3 we’ll head outside the US and seean amazing estate on the gorgeous beaches of St. Thomas. Then in Episode 4, we’ll explore a home that’s also a winery in the perfect place for such a residence, Napa, CA.

To close out the film festival, we’ll share some of the top entries in our Life, Camera, Action YouTube contest and announce the $25,000 grand prize winner on Friday, September 27 to close out the International Film Festival.

So from September 9 through September 27 every weekday we’ll be sharing a brand new video that showcases the true value of a home at films.coldwellbanker.com. We hope you’ll join us and share in what I guarantee will be the most interesting and entertaining home movies you’ll ever see.”
