sue Dublin Ranch Villages HOA Sue Toll Brothers

The Terraces, The Villas and The Courtyards respective Home Owners Associations have sued Toll Brothers, the builder, for various structural complaints. The builder is responsible for the structural integrity of the buildings for 10 years and the HOA is responsible after the 10 year warranty expires. The first buildings were completed in 2003 and 2004.
It is very common for Home Owners Associations to sue the builder of the project. Attorneys who specialize in condominium complex litigation pursue the HOA’s as they get closer to the 10 year warranty period advising the HOAs to verify the structural integrity of the buildings.
I have seen this many times over my 20 year real estate career. Most of the homeowners in the complex will not be affected unless they want to sell their property. The litigation must be disclosed on the Multiple Listing Service and to any potential buyer. Financing is the biggest challenge. Only a few lenders will lend on a property in litigation and the buyer must have at least 20% down payment.  
These lawsuits always get resolved. However, it could take years.

Dublin Crossing to Connect East and West Dublin

2,000 More Homes Coming to Dublin

SunCal Homes’ master plan for the 189 acre parcel on the south end of Camp Parks was unanimously approved by the Dublin City Council. The community will be a mixed use, pedestrian friendly neighborhood with shops, restaurants and homes plus nearby parks and trails. It will be a walking distant to BART and have between 1,600 and 1,995 new homes, 35 acres of parks, 75,000-200,000 sq ft of retail, office, hotel and industrial uses.  12 acres will be set aside for a new elementary school.
SunCal is currently building a new access point for entrance into Camp Parks. It will be located on the west side of the base off of Dougherty Road in a more industrial area. Completion is scheduled for March 2014
The development will connect the east and west sides Dublin. Joe Guerra, Dublin Project Manager sad that Dublin Crossing is perfectly situated to serve the growth and development needs of the region.
We have heard mixed feelings about this new development. On one hand the land is somewhat of an eye sore and it would be nice if the city did something with it. On the other hand that is a lot more homes and Dublin still only has 1 High School. What do you think? Is this a good Development for Dublin?

Generosity Shines in Dublin Ranch

kah 150x150 Dublin Ranch Residents Make a Difference

The love and generosity of our community never ceases to amaze me. Tuesday night, 80 Dublin Ranch residents packed 12,000 meals for Kids Against Hunger. The Hanchers and the Jenkins organized the event and asked their friends and neighbors to volunteer. Their goal was to have 80 participants; the maximum the facility could accommodate. Everyone had a job from filling and sealing bags of food  to packing boxes. Evan was in charge of refilling the various food containers and did a great job.
Kids Against Hunger’s mission is to feed hungry children and end world hunger. It filled our hearts to be able to spend our evening helping to fulfill their mission. Thank you to all of the Dublin Ranch crew. I love knowing you.

Have you had a chance to visit Mezbaan? I have been there twice for lunch and really enjoyed the buffet both times. The food was fresh and tasty. They have a good selection of vegetarian dishes as well as meat dishes. I really enjoyed the Tandoori Chicken and the Chicken Korma. The waiters are pleasant and very attentive. Piping hot naan is brought to your table as soon as your bread plate is empty. The restaurant is more upscale than most of the Indian restaurants in the area and they have a full bar. It is located in the Lowe’s Shopping center between Buffalo Wild Wings and Tokyo Playground.

Karen’s Kitchen
Karen Szurgot, Dublin Ranch resident and owner of Karen’s Kitchen makes the most amazing treats and desserts. Saturday night, we celebrated Mia’s mother and father in-laws 50th wedding anniversary and Karen made the cake. The first layer was red velvet and the top layer was a yellow cake with maybe a little rum. It was so beautiful and so yummy.
Friday night at “Raise Your Glass” Karen donated the cutest cake pops I have ever seen. They were decorated as minions. I didn’t get to taste them, but I’m sure they were as delicious as her other treats. One of the great things about Karen is that she supports our schools and our community.
I am a self-proclaimed chocolate cookie expert and Karen makes the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever tasted. Chocolate chip cookies are my weakness and I have tried lots of them. Hers are delicious.
When you need a dessert or treats for a special occasion, call Karen. You will not be disappointed. You can find her on Facebook HERE, along with photos of many of her other creations.
