It would be hunky dorey if people would live up to their word, wouldn't it? And if they find themselves unable to honor those commitments, it would be even nicer if they would own up to making mistakes and apologize. But then I would be living at Disneyland or on a deserted island with my husband...

Last night, as I was working late (and so was my husband), I received this email from him. It took me a few minutes to figure out what he was talking about. “If you think your real estate agent is going nuts, maybe they are. Lower prices have dropped the low end of the housing market into the rad...

Perfect turnkey home in East College Greens. Upated and remodeled. Newer carpeting. Open kitchen (with ceramic) overlooks dining room and family room, which offers tons of light and spacious entertainment. Mediterranean flaire. See the virtual tour of 8956 Gulfport Way.

Doug and Shereen, the Nehemiah home buyers I wrote about several weeks who were struggling to achieve the dream of home ownership, have finally received acceptance on an offer. It made me so excited that I found myself walking around in circles, thrusting my fists into the air and screaming, "Yes...

I was in the office yesterday talking to my transaction coordinator. I asked her: "What is the worst thing that can happen to a real estate agent?" She pondered the question: Deals falling out of escrow? Buyers losing financing? Dropping your cell phone into a lake? Nope. It's waking up in the mo...

Here is a tip for agents and buyers and sellers -- for every computer user. I regularly run Cocktail and Disk Utility on my Mac to keep it running clean, which is probably one of the reasons my computer doesn't freeze or crash. (Well, that, and it's a Mac.) But lately, I've discovered my email pr...

Credit this inspiration to an Active Rain blogger who asked the question about how to make banks accept REO offers, Jim Quinn. I responded on his blog, and he indicated that it was a great help. So, I decided perhaps I should write an article about it. After all, I've dealt with a ton of REOs lat...

Sometimes, I live vicariously through my clients. When they strike the jackpot, for example, I get so excited for them that you'd think I was handed the keys to a new Lamborghini and an around-the-world first class plane ticket. Anybody who knows me realizes that I believe short sales are no barg...

Don't let anybody fool you; it's hard for some first-time home buyers to buy their first home. It's not as easy as some people make it sound. Oh, sure, sometimes buyers can get lucky and score a home right away -- especially if location and condition aren't that important, but the odds are it wil...

Many of the REO listing agents I know are hard-working and ethical agents. They have a ton of listings to process, and they don't always earn a full commission because banks negotiate hard on listing fees. I try to cut them slack when I'm writing offers on REOs because I realize that many REO age...
