Shooting photos of millions of swarming butterflies is a lot harder than I thought it would be. They move too fast to capture wings in flight unless you use the right settings on your camera, and finding those settings while also framing the photograph is tough. At one point, as I was lying on th...
The most exciting day of the week for me is generally Friday mornings. It's when the bulk of my new listings tend to go "live" in MLS. I often enter my listings prior to our "on market" date. I want to see what they look like when published, rearrange the photos, if necessary; double check the in...
While it's easy to say our Sacramento housing market trends are seasonal, you really can't ignore the dramatics and numbers in Sacramento real estate today, nor completely explain the swing by seasons. Our January started off with a big bang this year in terms of buyer activity, but seller activi...
Imagine my excitement this morning when I signed on to MLS and discovered it was going to be 86 degrees today. I looked out my window, and it's raining cats and dogs. Something did not seem kosher. Oh, right. I had my MLS set to Hawaii weather. Well, we're not in Kansas anymore, Toto. It's back t...
Out of fear over bacterial difficulties, I was not about to drink any of the cocoa stuff at the Octolán de Morelos market near Oaxaca. No way, Jose. Oh, but I drink it all the time, says our guide. I turned around and stared him in the eyes until he rethought that sentence. Hey, it was probably n...
So far this year, time has been flying by. I can't believe it is in the middle of February already. Yesterday, being Valentine's Day, was a holiday that crept outta of nowhere. When my husband mentioned we had both forgotten about the day, we quickly made dinner reservations at an Ethiopian place...
In the foreground of this photo, below ground, you see the South side of the Ball Park at the ruins of Monte Albán outside of the city of Oaxaca, Mexico. This was no ordinary hole in the ground. It is shaped like an H. Players cannot touch the ball with their hands or head and relied upon, accord...
An amazing fact about a vacation to Mexico is how inexpensive everything is as compared to top resorts and restaurants elsewhere. If you stay away from the beach areas, a Mexican vacation is very different. What would ordinarily be easily a $300 to $400 dinner is less than $100, often $60 to $75....
It is possible I might not have time to post blogs for about a week or so, after this blog, that is. It all sorta depends on how things go in Mexico and how much time I have because my clients come first. The rest of you can all yammer about how your family comes first, but my family comes first ...
It's not just because it's a seller's market in Sacramento that we can be selective about which buyer is allowed to buy a short sale. For one thing, we don't have very many short sales anymore. It's really unusual to run into a listing that is a short sale and, since so many listing agents have n...
