Downtown Benicia, CA What a great place to live and grow. I head out of my house in the morning and am in such a great mood knowing I get to hang out in Benicia all day. Over the last 22 years I have had the privledge to live in this great City. I love to photograph the everyday stuff which seems like vacation photos, because everyday is a vacation in Benicia. The bottom photo with the bench by the water is where I asked my wife to marry me 20 years ago and it just keeps getting better. If you have ever thought of moving to Benicia I can help.

Benicia Community Park is one park in our lovely city of Benicia, Ca that has a variety of uses.  It has a dog park, skate park, paths to jog, walk & bike around, ball fields for softball and baseball.  Benicia Community Parkhas picnic tables, play equipment for toddlers to older children.  You can spend a whole day there enjoying the activities or sitting and just watching the activities! Many years ago when our twin daughters were young they loved to go here every day of the summer.  They called it the "concrete slide park".  The reason being is there is a huge slide cut out in the hill that is a kid magnet.  Also an adult magnet too!!.  My girls would spend hours going up and sliding down.  I have even seen some four legged children scooting down the slide. Benicia, CA has many parks...

Benicia Yuba Manufacturing Company Benicia ca, the Yuba. Benicia history will always have the Yuba Mfg. Co buildings as just a memory. In 1853 Benicia became California's third state capitol. That same year the first foundry was built in Benicia, that was the foundry of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company (the building at 701 East H. St. we bought and turned into a art gallery) which became Baker & Hamilton's Benicia Agricultural Works in 1879. Baker & Hamilton produced a wide variety of tools and farm equipment that became well known for their excellence by the ranchers and farmers of early west. Since this was before the machine age, the fine quality of these products was largely due to the skill of the craftsmen that worked there. In the early 1900's the Benicia Agricultural Works wa...

  Benicia Real Estate Hello Benicia residents. It really is time to buy here in Benicia, as the interest rates are still in the 4's and I have heard a few stories of some in the high 3's. Prices are starting to creep up a bit and when that happens it is time. The inventory is real low at the present time, so you will need a good Realtor to really work hard to get you what you are looking for. If you are thinking about selling I can get you on to your next home or adventure. I can help you with  a Short Sale.  Earl Miller Benicia Real Estate Coldwell Banker Solano Pacific     www.earlsbeniciarealestate.com

Benicia, CA homeowners have questions about short sales.  This week my business partner, Jenny, and I have been busy with listing presentations to distressed homeowners.  IF you are reading this, then you know the internet is full of advice, some sound and some absolutely bogus. If you want to get straight answers, talk to a Benicia Realtor who has experience with helping homeowners with distressed properties.  Not someone who hands the paper off to an assistant to process or an outside firm.  Experienced means being engaged, knowing what recourse or non-recourse loans are, what a deficiency judgment is, knowing what your lender is requiring for a short sale or loan modification, and actually being the face the lender will negotiate with.  That is what we are paid to do! That said, the ...

  Benicia has some of the best artist's in the Bay Area and we are blessed to have a gallery that displays their art on First Street Downtown. Benicia Plein Air Gallery one of my favorite artists is Terry Hughes who captures what I see and love in his paintings. I sit here in my living room and there are 6 paintings by Terry Hughes. I have a favorite that I was fortunate to get my hands on about 3 years ago and it is called MaMa Lupe......It is one of my favorite paintings. Benicia has so much to offer and so many artists, so come to town and check out the studios and spend the day in this beautiful City and enjoy  Fifteen local Artists show their outdoor paintings of Bay Area scenes centering on Benicia and Carquinez Straits and expanding throughout Northern California. When you visit ...

Hey tonight my wife and I left Benicia and headed over to the Walnut Festival in Walnut Creek ca. It was a warm and wonderful evening. The streets in Walnut Creek were all set up with booths ready for the weekends art show. We went in the evening and all the kids from every corner of Walnut Creek were there. Every kid yes I said every kid. It was really kinda fun....we were the oldest folks there and had a blast. Jane tried her hand at trying to get a ball in a basket and the guy made it look pretty easy, but it was impossible. Heading over to the art festival tomorrow and really looking foward to seeing all the art. Come over and check it out....It's fun for everyone........ http://www.thewalnutfestival.org/pages/page.php?pageid=21 Earl Miller Benicia Real Estate 707-280-6366 Coldwell ...
