"People are the foundation of our success. It simply would not have been possible for us to succeed if it were not for the thousands of families who have purchased an Oakland Home or live in an Oakland Community or have leased professional space in an Oakland building.

We are very grateful to the many craftsmen, architects, engineers, designers and lenders who have assisted us over the years and look forward to many exciting things to come."
