Benicia is just chock full of interesting activities.  This activity can be done on your own time and pace!  Starting on first Street and in front of the Veteran's Hall, a well known tile artist by the name of Guillermo Wagner Granizo, produced mural tiles that are inset all along First Street depicting the history of Benicia as he saw it. These tiles were created in his studio in Benicia, CA.  Granizo's use of bright colors, geometric shapes, heavy lines, and varying textures gives his creations a vibrant and festive feeling. You can see and feel the life of Benicia in these 3x3 murals as you stroll along First Street. Start at the Veteran's Hall and keep going til you see the Carquinez Straits.  There is plenty to see and do along the way and the tiles are on both sides of the street....

Not everybody loves what they do in life.  After retiring from AT&T 10 years ago this November, I found the best place in Benicia to work!!  No more commuting to San Francisco and traveling the state for my past career in Marketing. When I first started my Real Estate Career over 5 years ago, I came in on the tail end of "if you can fog a mirror, you can sell a home".  That cannot be said in today's market place of Benicia Real Estate.  Knowledge, Experience, Customer Service help to lead the way in getting buyers and sellers satisfied.  Coldwell Banker Solano Pacific has been the perfect place to hang my real estate license.  I have not looked back and always look to the future. I am proud to work for Coldwell Banker Solano Pacific. There is always a need to buy or sell. And I will be ...

Early morning and early evenings is when you see  Benicia Dogs out walking their owners.  The brisk morning air seasoned with the salty breezes from the Carquinez Straits greets the dogs and humans when walking down at the end of First Street in Benicia, CA.  Mild evenings provide that last minute sunshine to play fetch at the green downtown. Dog Fancy Magazine in its upcoming September issue has ranked Benicia as the nation's 4th best dog-friendly city.  Wow...4th in the entire United States!  That is a big deal and one we need to BARK to all pet owners.  (of course we encourage all pet owners to be poop conscious on public and personal properties, it just makes it easier getting around on the grass). To celebrate this accolade, Saturday August 28th at the foot of First Street, Marina ...

Thursday the Benicia Farmers's Market is downtown and many of the sailboats head out into the straits to race each week. Bring the camera, because there are so many beautiful sites to capture. Come to Benicia and enjoy one of the Bay Area's best kept secrets. Photos by Earl Miller Earl Miller, Benicia Real Estate, 707-280-6366 Coldwell Banker Solano Pacific

  Downtown Benicia is such a beautiful place to walk around and see the sites. I went down by the water today and it was such a beautiful day. Hanging around down by the water made one of the hottest days of summer feel so pleasant. Took the camera and shot a bunch of shots so if you haven't been here you can get a glimpse of what our City has to offer.

Benicia Public Library is a great place to find all the information you will possibly need for every project you have to handle. I have been going to the Library for years and have achieved certifications in a few programs at college and found all my needs at our Library. The Benicia Public Library is a great place to go to get away from it all and slip into a quiet and peaceful place to study or just read. The staff is more than helpful and will help you in any way possible. Enjoy   The link below is all you need to connect to the Library. 150 East L St, Benicia, CA 94510 707-746-4343 Fax 707-747-812150 East L St, Benicia,  http://www.benicialibrary.org/    Earl Miller, Benicia Real Estate, 707-280-6366 Coldwell Banker Solano Pacific

Beniicia Post Office downtown Benicia, 290 East L Street, Benicia - (707) 745-4019 Thinking about moving to Benicia? Here is our local Post Office. It is located in our downtown area by the City offices, and Police Station. It is a real nice post office and if you know when to go there you can get right in and out.  It really is never to long to wait and if you do get the chance to stand in line say hi to your neighbors. It always seems to me if you start a conversation others want to engage which is a great way to pass the time in the post office. I have had a post office box in the post office for almost 20 years. I love this post office and have great friends working there. Great place to get a passport in Benicia  There is an automated service that can get you right in and right out...

I love roller coasters.  My husband does not.  Consequently when our twin daughters were young, I would have to ride twice on a roller coaster until they were old enough to go together.  I love the wind in my face and my stomach feeling like it is going to drop out, screaming my head off, and when finally arriving at the finish feeling elated and ready to do it again. Short Sales in Benicia are kinda like that.  One recent delightful townhome in Lera Village made it to the finish line this past week.  It was a Bank of America Short Sale.  We got an offer right away in February of this year and all the paper works was submitted like clock work.  and we wait and we wait.  The Bank of America Equator system finally accepts an offer, but of course it has to be double checked by someone else...
