This is Jack White’s band from Detroit and now based in Nashville. They will be here in San Diego playing the Open Air Theater at SDSU on July 28th!

Today’s reminder to shut up and work.

Comedy by an actual Corcoran realtor but it’s pretty real – real like the Padres!
We’re creating a new website that will have features on each community, so new photos were needed to accompany. Here are the La Jolla pics that didn’t make the cut, but I thought were still blog-worthy:
