Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude.

Gratitude is the completion of thankfulness.

Thankfulness may consist merely of words.

Gratitude is shown in acts.

Charlie Hoffmann and Team South Bay hosted their annual "Gratitude Party." A celebration of clients and friends...time to relax and play and renew for the coming year. We enjoyed a huge "Mashed Potato Bar," Crunchy Kosher Hot Dogs, Slurpy Drinks (for the kids) and a mass of home baked cookies and munchies. The best part, however,was the fabulous cartoonist, Michael Garisek. He drew the most playful and artistic caricatures of all the guests. People lined up to watch and have their pictures done. It was a lot of fun. If you're looking for a great way to bring smiles to all the faces of your friends, clients, kids or neighbors check out Michael @

A special thanks to all the Team South Bay people:
Sam Martelaro (Farmers Insurance)
Sheila Martelaro (Pacific First Financial)
Gale Kadota (North American Title)
Jackie McGee (Peninsula Escrow)

Thank you for a GREAT year! Watch for Charlie's 2008 Homeowner Seminar Series.

Happy Holidays to all!
