Nobody is looking at Houses in Texas or Northern CA when the World Series is on. Strangely enough my phone goes dead, no one will make a listing or buying appointment not when the Rangers and the Giants are on TV. If you can't be at ATT park, which may be the most beautiful venue in all Ball Parks, you can cheer from anywhere in Northern CA... You want to know a secret, that's great for me. I'm a Giants fan. It's been a torturous season for Giant's fans, yet get into the World Series and the Giants made (2 comments)

Houses in Mountain House - Are you buying? - 10/28/10 01:25 AM
Houses in Mountain House - Are you buying? If you're considering moving to Mountain House, CA I'd like to make a couple of suggestions. As a local agent there are somethings you should know. 1) You should use a local agent. While family friends, an agent from miles away, etc can give great advise, you as the buyer will be best represented by a local agent. Encourage your 'friend, family agent, etc' to refer you to a REALTOR is Mountain House. The referral agent can get paid a referral fee and you get great local representation. Why is this important? 1) (0 comments)

New Resident in Mountain House - Short Sale SOLD! - Susan Goulding - 10/06/10 11:07 PM
Short Sales are worth waiting for when it's your DREAM HOME. This is the story of one such family, who's patience turned into their dream home. The first home they ever walked into was a short sale. There were multiple offers on this home. Their offer was rejected, however the listing agent said she'd let everyone know if anything happened with that buyer.
