I discovered this amazing scene outside my bedroom window awhile ago. A change is on the horizon.  After several days of Sacramento temperatures in the low 70s, we dipped to 58 degrees with breezes today.   As much as we need rain, we have experienced none this month.  The weatherman predicts coo...

In between trying to buy tickets for the Eagles, I accomplished quite a bit last week. Actually, if I had been more on the ball with my personal life, I would have set an alarm for 10 AM on Friday because that's when tickets for the Eagles went on sale at Golden1 Center. But I didn't think of it ...

Everybody talks a good game in Saramento real estate but not every agent can perform. I know this because my clients tell me what other agents say to them. Sometimes, I can't believe my ears. Because the statistics don't lie, and some of the stuff I hear is pretty outrageous.My method is to show,...

You know how sometimes you can meet people and you instantly get an off-center vibe about them? It's not what they say or do, or the smile on their face, it's something else. Maybe it's the way they live, with reckless abandonment, trash piled high everywhere. Or, the fact there are no lights on ...

There are many benefits to selling a home in a Sacramento sellers market. Competition for the same home can result in multiple offers, but not every home for sale is a candidate for multiple offers. If a seller's home is not a contender for multiple offers, there are still other ways a seller can...

It was late last autumn while cleaning out my closets, that I made a conscious decision, to tell my kids that I wished for no durable goods for Christmas.  Only consumable goods that take up either no space, or temporary space, I begged.  Near the top of my wish list was a ticket to St. Mel’s Cra...

Right after New Year's Eve, my phone started to ring this January. I did have two days of pretty much silence, though, on December 31 and January 1. It was remarkable. I happened to be in Honolulu over those two days, on vacation from my vacation on the Big Island, with Hella Rothwell. It's a goo...

Sacramento County experienced a 13% increase in number of homes listed FOR SALE in January 2018 vs. the same month a year ago. For the same period there was a -1.2% decrease in homes SOLD. Pending Sales increased 21.9%. Interest rates continue to remain reasonably low.  For those able to find sui...

My answer to that question is yes. Yes, a Sacramento listing agent should love the home she is selling. It makes everything so much easier. I firmly believe how an agent markets the home and the words an agent uses is what can motivate and drive desire. If an agent can't stand the house and speak...

As the old listing agent told me when I listed this: third agent is a charm. But there are things I do differently as a top-producing Sacramento Realtor, and it's why sellers hire me. I always look for all of the angles. Search for creative ways to bring attention to my new listings. In fact, you...

Now, this particular blog today is not about the many agents in the real estate business who work strictly with friends and family and can do only a fair job closing a few transactions a year. Times change rapidly. That's a story for another day, LOL. This is about the agents who scrape by in the...

Short of sticking my fingers into my ears and raising my voice -- lalalalalala, can't hear you -- it can be tough to get sellers to stop sharing. Home sellers often expect to share every personal detail about the transactions with their listing agent. They trust their listing agent, as they shoul...

Honestly, this I was not expecting. I was hopeful I would close enough to make Master's Club in January, but it looks like it will be in February or March instead. I'm not sure what the requirements are for Master's Club anymore because they keep changing them. Generally it's selling 8 homes mini...

I had this feeling yesterday that if I had insisted on bringing home two kittens instead of just one, my husband was at a weak point in his conviction. He insists that our maximum cat numbers cannot exceed three. They were THAT cute.But when we paused to consider, it wouldn't make sense. Besides ...

My plane from Hawaii landed about midnight Friday. When I woke up yesterday morning in a daze, wandering into the living room in my nightgown, I think my husband must have heard me click the heat up a few notches. Shortly afterward, he came into the kitchen as I fumbled for the coffee. He held ou...

I had difficulty sleeping in the wee hours of this morning, so I switched on the television and tapped into Netflix streaming.  The title I chose was “Water and Power: A California Heist.”  It is a National Geographic production which reveals how a handful of water barons managed to gain control ...

I've heard some real estate agents compare themselves to doctors, but I don't think the medical profession is a good example to use as an analogy. We are not brain surgeons. On the other hand, when we look at lawyers, many in that profession find it a calling. They don't necessarily make a lot of...

February is shaping up to be a great month for Sacramento real estate, and we're only a few days into it. Take yesterday, for example. It should have been a slow day. Thursdays are often what we jokingly term "Realtor's Day Off." Although we never really get a day off unless we don't touch our co...

Beautifully remodeled homes with all of the bell and whistles tend to fly into escrow almost immediately. But there is no discrimination going on in this Sacramento real estate market. It's not just the drop-dead gorgeous homes that sell fast. Even homes that have not been remodeled can sell in J...
