“I take Caltrain to my workplace in Downtown Palo Alto. I sell commercial real estate, and it’s a disaster getting in and out of there by car at top commute hours. I meet a lot of interesting people through my line of work, people from all walks of life that own real estate and deal with people, just like I do. However, the geography of the place—with the ocean being in one direction and the Bay in the other—makes for limited real estate that many people can’t afford. I grew up in Portland, so this region is really different to me. I was originally drawn to the sunny weather and went to school down here, but then I ended up meeting my wife here, too. The Bay Area is just an incredibly dynamic place to live.”
