Strange title, seems pretty obvious, but not so.  I am thanked almost everyday for returning an email or phone call like I was doing something exceptional.  Turns out I am.My largest commission to date came from a client that emailed about 20 agents and I'm the only one that got back to him in a ...
I followed the car in front of me on our Board of Realtors caravan last Thursday just as I always do.  That's how we do it.  We meet for coffee and donuts (board pays for them), then get in our cars and follow each other from listing to listing.  It became evident to me when we were fully separat...
Did I alarm you with the title of this post?  Good, I meant to.We just purchased a hot tub several weeks ago and my husband would not let us use it until everything was just so.  He installed an ozonator and did several other things to make it very nice.  We thought we had it all dialed in and to...
Crescent City Board of REALTORS® Caravan review - This bi-weekly event is for board member agents from every office who would like to preview their new listings.  It is a very good way to get exposure and the event is usually well attended (you must be a member of the Crescent City Board of REALT...

Another reason to move to Del Norte County:  The view of the Alpha Aurigids meteor shower is breathtaking.  Every-night from August 31 to September 2 you can get a meteor shower show.One of the reasons the meteor shower shows so well in our county is that it is not a large metropolitan area that ...
Client devotion, finding the balance - I am closing in on the perfect balance of devotion to my clients. I realize this varies with each client and their needs and will vary from agent to agent and how they do business.My clients who are considering a relocation from out of the area need a lot mo...
Crescent City/Del Norte County Market Report for July 2007 - Residential listings sold in July of 2007 are down 23% over July of 2006, which should come to no surprise to anyone following the real estate market.  Del Norte County's decline is actually much less than quite a few markets around the...
One of my escrows crashed and burned today.  I thought I was going to be immune from the recent round of the subprime disaster, but no.  First thing this morning I called the lenders on my open escrows and made sure we were all good.  I skipped one because it was a construction loan that had prev...
