Scripps Ranch Under Evacuation Orders

California-fire[3]We just got word on Fox News that Scripps Ranch, home of our close friends and fellow Realtors, Kris & Steve Berg has recently fallen victim to the massive fires in California- homeowners have been evacuated and while coverage was fuzzy on if any structures have been burned, they were clear that Scripps Ranch is part of the flames. Our prayers are with you guys in this tough time and with all of the Californians in peril and worry right now.

California- our thoughts and prayers are with you- we do not take for granted that we will sleep peacefully tonight and pray that you too return to normalcy soon.

-Benn, Lani & all of the Agent Genius Contributors

UPDATE: Kris & friends are in their back yard drinking wine and getting rained on with ash but swear it’s a precautionary evacuation and the real fire line is soooo far away. Regardless, Kris is stubborn and will remain in our prayers!

    >Kris & friends are in their back yard drinking wine…

    I rather like that delicate description. “Friends” consisted of my crazy side-kick, Steve. Fluffy, the short-haired domestic cat, and Simon, the dumb as a doorknob dog, were peering longingly from inside the house. Too much ash and soot to risk dirtying the carpeting with their eight combined paws. As the police were announcing on their bullhorns that we must leave NOW, I was dutifully sweeping the dog hair from the kitchen floor. Steve didn’t get it, but women everywhere will. There was no WAY that I was going to have the emergency crews thinking I actually live like this.

    All kidding aside, this is no joke. Too many homes have been lost, and too many lives touched by this tragedy. Our hearts and prayers go out to all of the victims, and, on behalf of all San Diegans and Southern Californians, I thank you for your well-wishes and support.

    Brian Brady is still at the “Q” (Qualcomm Stadium), as far as I know, and probably stalking Anderson Cooper for an autograph as we write.
