You can just hear how it must have happened. Dude, look, we can go over to Zillow and scrape off their list of agents. These agents are like gold, man, because they pay Zillow. We'll put them all together on a list for each metropolitan city, and then create a separate web page for each city list...
Sometime back in February I recall asking my husband if he felt like checking out the spot where the old Rubicon Brewing Company used to occupy for many decades in Midtown. It's on Capitol Avenue by 20th Street. Nice location for walking around Midtown Sacramento. But they weren't quite ready, an...
Don't get me wrong, there are times when a lowball is called for. Like, when the property is grossly overpriced. I recall maybe 15 years ago writing an offer for a buyer on a home in Land Park. It was listed around a million and my buyers got the place for about $600K. Today it is easily worth mo...
In Sacramento, our hot seller's market has existed for almost 7 years. That has been a long stretch. And during that stretch of time, interest rates have been historically low.

When you look back at how people once smoked everywhere, well, it would feel like you're in France. It is very hard to quit smoking when you're grabbing dinner at a smoke-fueled French brassiere with the patron next to you balancing a cigarette on the edge of her dessert plate. You learn very fas...
The unsung tale in the September housing report in Sacramento is the bulk of inventory in the upper end range. Looking at August numbers, in the $800+ range, we had 5 to 7 months of inventory, which is not reflected in this chart. Our September inventory overall, in the chart above, shows 2.4 mon...
Yesterday an email came through targeting 50 agents in Sacramento. They seem to all be top producers but hard to say how that list was pulled. The agent who created the list did not even take the time to group all the names into one contact list, so he exposed every recipient's email address.The ...
How many neighborhood associations throw you a free BBQ picnic? In addition to offering volunteer opportunities for residents to become involved in the neighborhood, the Land Park Community Association holds fundraisers like a Taste of Land Park as well. The LPCA keeps us informed about community...
