Gopher Canyon Area of Vista, CA - Exclusive or Reclusive? - 03/31/10 11:28 PM
There is something going on over in the Gopher Canyon area of Vista, CA that few people really know about...it's become an exclusive retreat to the rich and famous...or those just willing to give it all up for a little pampering! I just happened to turn on a fairly new show the other night that I had recorded on my DVR, "Kirstie Alley's Big Life", which is a reality TV show that focuses on her home life and efforts to lose weight. In an all out effort to beat her weight loss buddy, who is also her handyman around her house, (4 comments)
Seriously, wouldn't you like to come home after a hard day at the office and enjoy the view from this rear entertainment patio located in the Coronado Hills community in San Marcos, CA? Just look at how far you can see...and this is a daylight view...it is almost more spectacular in the evening! That is what this community is all about - the views!
And what kid, big or small, wouldn't just love to come home and work off a little steam on this great side play yard and pretend to be king/queen of the hill...with (4 comments)
Social Media Should be the Glue that Holds Your Day Together...and Unifies it into a Success! - 03/23/10 03:19 PM
I attended a free seminar today, for members (there is a basic free membership), over at the International Social Media Association (Mari Smith is the President of this Association). As good as this content was that was given away for free, I can't wait to look into some of their other memberships! This call that I attended today was given by Lisa Larter with Mari Smith called: "Social Media is NOT the Silver Bullet You Think it is" and several of the worthwhile things that I came away with from this call were: Keep a focused profile on all your social (12 comments)
Calling All Users of TheWiseAgent.com!!! - 03/20/10 07:16 PM
Hi, everyone! With springtime comes spring cleaning...the world's next chance at wiping the slate clean and starting fresh. It seems that realtors are doing that in full force as I have been inundated with requests for recommendations on CRM systems. I know all the old standbys and recommend them as they fit the individual realtor; however, I have been hearing more and more about thewiseagent.com and would like to hear some personal references from people who have used the system. I look forward to hearing your responses, thanks! (2 comments)

Home Loan for Foreign National in US on O1 Visa? - 03/10/10 06:28 PM
The buyer was brought over here by the U.S. government to work for one specific company because he had unique skills / abilities that no one here had and he has a 01 Visa (lets him work for this one company - if he gets fired before his permanent green card comes through I guess he has to go back to the UK), he has good credit in the UK - but no credit to speak of here in the US. He has had 3 mortages over there. He has "permanent employment" status with his company and is only a few (2 comments)

Lesson Learned -- Hiring Contractors - 03/02/10 09:01 PM
Just a quick blog post I wrote over at my main North San Diego County Real Estate website about a very important lesson I learned on hiring contractors...especially when you're within the quick time crunches of escrow. Also, because of this experience, you'll understand when you read the post, I also am sending out a very public recommendation for Wayne's Septic Solutions based out of Murrietta, CA - but serving all of San Diego County as well as Riverside County - this is a great ethical company to work with. (I get no reimbursement or anything for this referral...merely spreading the (0 comments)
