Along with the upside of being a real estate agent and writing for a national web site such as About.com, there is also a downside. It's easy for consumers to find my telephone number. I could remove my cellphone number from my website, but what's the point? I want people to be able to call me. E...
You never know what you might see in Land Park, especially the closer you get to William Land Park. The Sacramento SPCA (SSPCA) held its annual Doggy Dash event today at William Land Park. I sponsored one of my client's dog packs in the race. Amy McMullan supports the Pit Bull club known as Sacra...
I hate to say this, but Sacramento short sale sellers need to know that they must prove a hardship to sell on a short sale. How a seller fills out the required financial statement is paramount. It's not enough to show that your liabilities exceed your assets. Because that's easy to show if your h...
Usually when I walk along the manicured paths of the WPA Rock Garden in William Land Park, I see very few visitors. It's not crowded. Oh, you might spot a few kids playing hide-and-seek or the lone photographer snapping pictures of flowers, but the Rock Garden in Land Park doesn't have an abundan...

It seems that Sacramento buyers and their agents don't pay much attention to a short sale listing until it goes into "active contingent" status. The minute one buyer wants that home, then everybody else in town wants it as well. Desirability increases when an offer has been received. It's like th...
One of the things that I like best about living in the Sacramento neighborhood of Land Park is the fact I can walk along our tree-canopied streets to just about anywhere. I walk not only to typical places such as restaurants, gift shops, boutiques, the Land Park Tower Theatre or Taylor's Market, ...
There must be some law of the universe that says if you're going to have a medical emergency, it's almost duty bound to happen on a Sunday. When I poked myself in the eye with a yucca plant, it was on a Sunday. When my husband dropped a pan of boiling artichoke water, which splashed upward and sc...
My sister called yesterday from International Falls in Minnesota. She asked how to find Winnipeg in Manitoba, Canada -- whether Winnipeg was east of west of International Falls. I wanted to know what the heck was she doing in International Falls? She lives in Minneapolis. Seems she grabbed my nie...
