Happy Halloween 🎃  from The Costa Group at Vanguard!

Dear Friends, Clients & Colleagues,

It's Sara and Franck popping into your inbox to say “hello” and to wish you and your family a Boo-tiful Halloween! We absolutely love this time of year! It provides the perfect opportunity to get out and enjoy the beautiful Marin and San Francisco weather.  

In the fall, if we aren’t too busy selling Real Estate 🏠, you can often find us outside enjoying nature or partaking in one of our favorite activities. Whether we are on our bikes 🚲  enjoying the landscapes of the SF Bay & Marin; or enjoying our favorite family-friendly hikes 🌳 at Land’s End SF or the Marin Headlands and beyond, you can be sure that we are taking in every site, sound and smell (Who doesn't love the scent of leaves in the fall?🍁) of the season. We hope you are doing the same & enjoying it all to the max! 

Our hearts go out to everyone who has been effected by the Wine Country & Bay Area fires.  There are no words to express what has happened. Please know that we are here for you to help in any way that we can. Just say the word! You know where to find us. ❤️

If you'd like to learn more about our favorite fall activities, head on over to our new Instagram account. 

Many thanks for your continued support & referrals,

Franck & Sara Costa
