Why Closing a Short Sale is Like Solving the Rubik's Cube - 07:12 AM
You buy 'em books, send 'em to school, and look at what they do. That's what my father used to say. Isn't it weird how you can sometimes hear your parents' voices echoing in your head? My father was a lot like Archie Bunker. Sort of a toss up between Archie Bunker and Jackie Gleason. But I think of him sometimes when I deal with lenders. It's my sole reference point for distaste. There are so many moving parts in a buyer's loan it's hard to know where to look first. As a Sacramento short sale agent, I generally deal only (5 comments)

The War - June 1812 - 05:18 AM
The 4th President of the United States of America, James Madison, authored a "War Message to Congress" and dated it June 1, 1812. In his message to Congress the Republican President outlined a series of hostile acts by the government of Great Britain and recommends action against Great Britain. In the same message, almost as a footnote, Madison wrote about France: " .. I abstain at this time from recommending to the consideration of Congress definitive measures with respect to that nation ..".

Things You Need In Your Office If You Are Chinese - 08:47 PM
Just for fun, there are some of the things you need in your office if you are Chinese: In chinese, we call it the Prosperity Cat. In direct Cantonese Translation, we say, Finding Wealth Cat. In Japenese, it's better known as Maneki Neko. If you observe closely, you will find one of these cats on the counter of a Chinese restaurant - sometimes one waving at you. To take this belief one step further, we Chinese always place the Prosperity Cat facing the window. Hence, "procuring the wealth".
Not knowing these are some of my favorite things in the world, (16 comments)
