The interesting story about this listing is I met with the sellers a few months back while they were working on fixing up three homes they had inherited. I talked with them about the types of improvements they should make, offered a few contractors, discussed pricing, and they indicated when they...
We have characters in Midtown, people who are homeless but have become such an institution in certain neighborhoods, such a part of the landscape, that they are regarded as part of the community by residents. It's not uncommon for people who live in Midtown to know the names and habits of many ho...
A potential new resident of Sacramento called from the Midwest last night to talk about a possible relocation to Sacramento. I listened to her describe needs, where she lives now, her expectations of a home, things that would drive her crazy if she doesn't have them, the type of job she is interv...
Last month I said goodbye to my brother, and this month it looks like our diabetic cat Pica is not going to make it much longer. We have him on buprenorphine to ease his pain. I read a web article that says buprenorphine is 30 times more powerful than morphine. We are still fighting with the IRS ...

As a veteran listing agent in Sacramento, I know that a strong desire equals a smooth transaction. Oh, everybody is preapproved in some format or another, wh...
A former client called me last week to list her residence in Sacramento, and I'm going by the home today to meet with her husband. They've already bought a retirement home and are moving shortly. He asked if should remodel the kitchen or make other substantial improvements prior to selling. Witho...
In some parts of Sacramento, it's not a good idea to hold open houses on Sunday because there is no traffic nor excessive interest in certain neighborhoods. However, the Capitol Corridor area always pulls in visitors, and we see good results from our Sunday open houses. It doesn't necessarily mea...
Many buyers today pick out their own homes to view, but it still doesn't mean that an agent should not exercise due diligence and make sure those homes fit the buyer's parameters. On top of that, many buyer's agents have the ability to expand the criteria and search for homes in such a way the bu...
