LoCoco's Cucina Rustica - Santa Rosa Ca - Italian Restaurants - Sonoma County Wine Country Lifestyle
My wife and I don't go out to dinner often so we tend to be very picky with the places we like to go to eat. If we find a new restaurant that's not very good the first time we go there, we usually don't come back. Through the years, we've narrowed down the list of our favorite restaurants to a handfull of places that we love going back to depending on the type of food we're both in the mood for. One of our top … (3 comments)

US Navy Blue Angels - San Francisco Fleet Week - A Must See Air Show!
I'm posting this in honor of my father who served in the US Navy during the Vietnam War and to send some PR to the Blue Angels. I also wrote about my father's military stint in the US Navy and how it affected me on my profile page. This last fall, my wife and I drove down to San Francisco to see the US Navy Blue Angels during Fleet Week. We were fortunate to see the amazing show that afternoon after the early morning fog lifted … (6 comments)

Tis' the Season for Giving - Send Google Juice to your fellow Activerainers!

If you haven't noticed, the holidays are just around the corner already! I am scrambling to find fun and unique gifts for our friends and family. Last week, at a party, a friend of mine said the gift of time is one of the most precious gifts you can give. So, he's taking the time to make most of his presents by hand.

FHA Home Loans, Santa Rosa, CA - New FHA Loan Limits and Proposals for 2010
I'm not a big fan of posting technical or industry news about lending because I think it's a dry subject, but I ran across this information today on FHA's Proposals and Loan Limits for 2010 and thought it would be good to share with my Realtors and real estate agents in the Sonoma County Wine Country Real Estate Market. Based on what I've read, FHA is cracking down on the smaller brokers.
I have a feeling these new rules will force many of the small brokers who currently originate … (3 comments)

Sonoma County Wine Country, California - Cycling through the Fall Colors

Cycling in Sonoma County is one of the best ways to experience the Wine Country's beautiful countryside. I love going for a nice 25 bike ride in the morning. If I'm really into it, I'll lose myself on a 50 miler through Santa Rosa, Windsor, Healdsburg, Napa, Sonoma, Petaluma or Sebastopol. Cycling is my favorite form of exercise and a great stress reliever. I wrote about this in one of my posts called Sonoma County Wine Country Top Ten Secret's Exposed.
This year, I got to enjoy the added … (11 comments)

Are you addicted to Activerain? Here's a cure that will tickle your funny bone.
 
 
 
Last week as I was perusing my rankings on Activerain, I noticed one of my loan officers took a leap over me in rankings so I called him to see what he did to move up so quickly. Since he just started this process, I was really curious to see what steps he took. I figured he would share with me since I introduced him to Activerain.I told him I would start putting more effort into my activities because I needed to be a … (6 comments)

203k MADE SIMPLE?
Ok, maybe not, but I will attempt to make it as simple as possible for the client to understand and want to read on.  For many of us in the business who are " in the know"  we forget that we need to go back to the basics and spell it out in simple terms for others to understand.  So I've compiled … (0 comments)

northern california: Home Loans - Rates are great, but homes are better - Santa Rosa, CA - 10/21/09 04:29 AM
Home Loans - Rates are great, but homes are better - Santa Rosa, CA
 
Mortgage rates are at an all time low again. This should help many home buyers save a few more dollars on their monthly payments or buy a little more home. Notice, I wrote "home" not "house." Remember the line "home is where the heart is"? It seems to me that we lost that connection with our home these last few years and stopped paying attention to the health of our "heart". I remember when home buyers talked about raising families or retiring in their homes.
Then, … (1 comments)

FHA and VA Home loans - Santa Rosa, CA - Inspection reports
I have to laugh. I just got asked if I actually know how to do loans because several of my last blogs have been about my geographic area and were not loan related. I've been originating loans for 18 years, many of them were FHA and VA loans, but I don't feel I need to go on and on about my field, when there are plenty of other interesting things to write about! I have seen many loan professionals in my industry with the amazing ability to crunch out pages of information … (7 comments)
