Was visiting a couple of days ago with clients who moved to Piedmont in 2007. Out of the blue, he said,
"You know, all this [renovation] stuff with the house has been fine, but we had no idea how great this move would be for our lifestyle. Compared to [living in Oakland and our kids going to private school with friends all over the area], it's all so easy. They walk to school. They walk to friends' houses. I catch the bus a couple blocks away to the Financial District. Our friends elsewhere have to have logistics meetings every night to organize for the next day."
That's essentially what you said, right?
