I purchased my first property in Pleasanton in the mid ninety's.
I purchased my current property in 2000.

Recently, I have had several phone calls from realtors asking if I would consider selling my current property. I expressed no interest to all of them.

This weekend, A real estate person rang my door bell. He asked, bluntly if I would accept X dollars for my home.

I said no, I do not like to move. He upped his offer, stating he has clients ready to make an offer. His offer as stated to me ay my front door, is double what I paid for my home.

I said to the realtor, I will mention your offer to my wife. He said he will call me.

Not sure where this will go, but, I may consider a buy out if it is overbearing attractive as this realtor presented.
