"We've outgrown our office space and need more room to serve our customers better," says Nerd4Rent owner Ed Zeidan, "our new location is just a short distance from our previous office, but it's larger and has more parking spaces." The locally-owned computer service business promises to continue speaking English, not "geek", as they serve individuals and businesses for all their IT needs.

Coldwell Banker Supports Food Banks
Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage announced it raised $11,902 during its first-ever fundraiser to benefit Bay Area Food Banks. The company also announced that, to further help those in our communities who are facing hunger this holiday season, it will match the donations for a final contribution of $23,804 to local food banks. "Our first ever Bay Area Food Banks fundraiser was a wonderful success," said Rick Turley, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in the San Francisco Bay Area. "It's fantastic to see that, even in these tough economic times, people are so willing to open their hearts and give what they can so that those in their communities don't have to go hungry this holiday season." All donations will stay local and be distributed to each of the Bay Area's nine county food banks.
