Hi AB,
Welcome back from Thanksgiving.
I understand the disclaimer, and I'd still like to ask you for a couple of real estate agent names that you would use yourself. If I use their services it will be at my own risk, of course. I'm flying from Tokyo to CA mid December and I wanted to get a first glimpse of what is available out there. I'll need agents particularly knowledgeable abou the different developments inside Serrano, or any similar gated community.
I'd appreciate any suggestion since it will probably be more effective then choosing from website lists.
Thank you.

Wow, that's a big move! Very exciting. It is probably best for you to e-mail me at average_buyer at yahoo dot com (I always spell it out so screen scrapes don't send me spam). I can give you some tips on Serrano and the other gated developments, as well as the contact (with lots of caveats =)
