Now stop that.  If your mind immediately went to a tall bar stool, with bouncy babes in black shorts, you got it wrong.  I'm a Hooter, but not that kind. Think pink, instead.As a 10 year breast cancer survivor, I have raise $4,000 to $7000 for the past 3 years for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day walk, w...
The history of Fair Oaks is full of intertwining families, and so it is with this month’s Old Home feature - the Alvin L. Heim Home at 4940 Minnesota Ave. Alvin came to Fair Oaks from Indiana in 1909, buying 10 acres on Minnesota, tucked against what is now the North Ridge Golf Course. He married...
Veteran loans through the VA are awesome for the veteran - but sellers are frequently reluctant to accept an offer with VA financing.  Usually that is becasue the VA requires that the home has a pest clearance, and many sellers (including banks who have held the foreclosed properties) don't want ...
 I find myself saying it, too. "I can't wait for The 3 Day Event to be here.  It will be so fun!" STOP THAT, though.  Don't rush it. It's truly about the journey, not the destination. Be. Here. Now. You all giggled when I said there is nothing like the first time.  But it's true. You will never a...
I decided to go big, or go home! I've built a team of over 50 walkers to go to San Diego this coming November, to walk in Komen's "The Three Day" event - 20 miles a day, 3 days in a row.  In the process, our team will raise over $100,000 for the Komen Foundation.  We are Hands Up For Hooters. Why...
Redesigning your kitchen is a daunting task, with many options.  My best advise? Hire a Pro Designer who knows what they are doing! A few years ago I sold a beautiful charmingly rustic home in Carmichael to Debby and Mark.  The only weak spot was the dated kitchen.  But it is dated no more. Debby...
How accurate is a Zillow Zestimate? Like what's in grandmas's shopping cart - DEPENDS. If you live in a monstrous standard subdivision of homes, all built by the same builder, from 5 floor plans, with little variation, your Zestimate might be pretty accurate. But if you live in a custom area, wit...
This Thanksgiving, I hope to give thanks for my feet and my friends. I will have just completed walking 20 miles a day, 3 days in a row, through the streets of San Diego.  I picture sunny skies, 1800 fellow walkers wearing pink boas, sequined tutus, and men wearing balloon stuffed leopard print b...
A few months ago I sold an historic Vitorian farmhouse in Orangevale built in the late 1880s. Not 19... 18. In California, that is OLD! I know you Easterners scoff at our idea of old, but this was built as one of the first homes of the orchards of Orangevale, since it was split into manageable 10...
A cruise down Fair Oaks Blvd in Carmichael CA has always been a good time to day dream.  There are some pretty ugly billboards, uninspiring block buildings, funky furniture ads, and really not much to look at. I remember it has been voted the ugliest stretch of road in the area recently. Really m...
