WELCOME TO INFO MENLO PARK Woodside canine Chester explores his front yard.

Editor’s note Welcome to the 15th annual INFO Menlo resource guide, published by The Almanac. Within these pages is a wealth of helpful information on everything from schools to parks to how to contact public officials. Want to know where to see live theater, play a game of badminton, take a hike or send your preschooler? It’s all inside. This book covers four municipalities: Atherton, Menlo Park, Portola Valley and Woodside. Each city and town section provides contact information for police, fire, libraries, building inspectors and more. Sections include the arts, community services, outdoors and recreation, activities for children, schools and government services. Much more information is available online, at www.AlmanacNews.com under “Community resources.� Extensive information online is also available about our surrounding communities, including Stanford, Palo Alto and Mountain View. Our cover photo this year — Abby Jorgensen giving her horse a smooch after riding practice at The Horse Park in Woodside — was shot by Almanac Photographer Michelle Le.

I have lived on the Peninsula for most of my life, and I love our Community here. I was raised in Atherton, spent several years in San Carlos and currently reside in Menlo Park with my husband and two children. My passion for real estate comes from the experiences my mother, Kris Klint, had during her 25 years in the business. Her compassion and personal touch with each of her clients made me want to follow in her footsteps. Her guidance has been invaluable to me during my last six years in real estate. As I continue in this industry, I hope to build on the business that she successfully started. I am looking forward to helping you find the home of your dreams!

laine helped us buy a house in Menlo Park and sell our previous home in Foster City. We are extremely happy with the advice and services we received on both those transactions. Elaine is very professional and has a deep understanding of local markets. Elaine is also very responsive and has a friendly attitude. She helped us prepare for sale and positioned the house effectively thereby enabling multiple offers. Elaine and Dean were also really helpful with advice about remodeling our new home after we bought it.
