Congratulations to the Leadership of Pacific Union Real Estate in recognizing the importance of community involvement. What a great "kick-off" message from this established San Francisco firm who has a years old reputation for generous community support. Welcome to the Peninsula!

Thanks, Larry. We spent a long time deciding how to honor the traditions and community in Menlo Park before we opened our Pacific Union Silicon Valley Flagship here. There is such a rich history of organizations working for good in this City. We are very happy that you took note. Thank you for your kind comment.
