You must be very proud living in a city that has "good living" in its title, Lottie. A lot of people are going to want to make San Carlos their home.  Stand back....

Lottie -- a city that is concerned with its residents' feelings on the quality of life there is very important.  Good to see those in San Carlos are very satisfied --- I like the personal way you tie in your role as a Realtor who serves that community.
