New areas in south bay
Aubrie does a great job talking about places to go, things to see, and where to eat in the South Bay! Love how she incorporates real estate tips too!
Great Show Focused on the South Bay Scene
I really like how Audrie covers the San Jose scene. My favorite episode so far is the one focused on willow glen and taco recommendations in the Bay Area.
Love this show!
Not only is Aubrie's voice AMAZING, but her show's are well thought-out and keep me up to date with everything southbay home related. I love how she shares the personal side and characteristics of neighborhoods and local community events/tips/advice. This pod is my go-to for all my home and real estate info. Thanks Aubrie!!
