Seller laugh when I tell them this, but it's true that when I receive a purchase offer the first thing that pops into my head is generally not: oh, goodie, we've got an offer, it's: what is this buyer trying to pull. It's my nature to be cynical. It's not that buyers are purposely trying to cover...
Well, I had to pay the price a little bit for going on that hike Sunday when I had two open houses going on by working through dinner. It's not that I have to be physically present at the Open because that's my team members' jobs. They work with buyers so they hold the houses open, and we had a t...
This is a Spotted Towhee we caught along the Mitchell Creek trail at Mount Diablo singing his fool head off. Yes, spring is upon us. There is only so much sitting in front of my computer and selling Sacramento real estate one can do before one finally decides to get out in nature. This is the thi...
True fact, I almost moved to Curtis Park when I relocated to Sacramento in 2002. My husband and I looked at a ton of homes in East Sacramento, made offers on several and lost, a bunch in Land Park and Midtown, but it was Curtis Park that captures the heart. Even though it is right next to Land Pa...
My basic plan is never deliver bad news without a solution that offers good news as an alternative. That principle has served me well over the years.

I have sold other homes in Antelope Highlands but this particular listing is a cut above the rest. It's been so meticiously maintained. It's not unusual for an agent to experience a heightened pleasure when presented with the opportunity to sell a beautiful home. But even a beautiful home can gen...
Don't pay any attention to the weeds growing out of the gutters. Those are fairly new gutters, I suspect. The roof appears to be relatively new as well. And don't let the flowers planted in the front yard down by the street fool you or the nicely set table in the dining room. This house suffers f...
Helping sellers cope with emotional issues is one of the services many real estate agents offer. It just sort of comes with the territory. I'd like to think that some of us are better at expressing empathy than others. Empathy, as you may know, is different from sympathy. Anybody can say they are...
The heat in the Sacramento downtown real estate market is burning red hot. You can feel it in the air and see it with your eyes. Buildings going up all around you. It's exciting. It's like we've been drugged and asleep for a decade and we are just now waking up our Rip Van Winkle selves.  One of ...
Maybe it's because I don't live in Elk Grove that I list and sell so many homes in that area? I don't know but I do know I'm a specialist there. Some people in the older parts of Elk Grove may express a regret that so many outsiders have taken up residence, but in 2006, Elk Grove was named the fa...
