Sacramento real estate and housing market, from Galt to Lincoln. Local observations about Sacramento restaurants, special events, music concerts and the Sacramento lifestyle, including great places to vacation around the world.
Since we were in the area anyway, what the hey, it seemed like a good idea to plan a trip to La Casa Grande, otherwise known as the main house at Hearst Castle in San Simeon. We grabbed a quick breakfast at The Oaks Hotel in Paso Robles and headed downtown to shop at a few stores before driving 4...
Initially, Barb and I had tickets to see Mickey Dolenz in Sacramento last spring at The Crest Theatre. But suddenly the show was canceled without any reason. Our money refunded. Curious about that, I searched online to see what was up. Turns out Mickey was able to negotiate a sweeter deal, even i...
The proximity of these Beazer-built homes to downtown Sacramento is incredible. Your driving time is less than 10 minutes. Because who wants to spend their life in a car on the freeway, except a few Natomas Realtors like me, I suppose. But there are other benefits to buying this home in Natomas t...
Myrl might call our lunch date an informal Active Rain Meetup, but I would not, really. But maybe that's because I don't spend much time on the website, and I'm darn lucky to make time to post a blog. Myrl is one of those exceptional people who comes along in life when one least expects it and tu...

There are days I feel like reciting a soliloquy from the opening scene of Hamlet, asking whether it is nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune or to take arms against a sea of troubles. To be or not to hold an open house. Especially in Curtis Park. When the agent ...
We are really fortunate in Sacramento that we have so many excellent music venues, and we don't always have to drive to San Francisco to see national acts on tour. Because we just saw Jenny Lewis at the Masonic in San Francisco's Nob Hill, I didn't want to make a second trip to the City, so picki...
We've been shopping at the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op since we first moved to Sacramento some 14 years ago. We used to shop at the Whittier Co-Op in Minneapolis, because my husband insists on organic food. When I use the collective word "we" I really mean my husband because he is the grocery ...
Thanks to my friend Hella Rothwell on AR who asked the question whether clients should sign documents after closing. Inspiration goes both ways in this business, and Hella always comes up with great questions to pose to other agents. She inspired me to write a blog this morning about that questio...
