I couldn’t believe it, but it’s true.  Today marks the 13th anniversary of MTKC’s grand opening.  Happy 13, MTKC!  Over the years, my family and I have been through a lot of ups and downs with MTKC.  From the water pipe burst that flooded our San Mateo showroom and took us 9 months to rebuild, to the Great Recession of 2008, on to some of the best years that followed in the Bay Area real estate boom, and to our eventual decision to switch from our showroom to a home...
