I don't know if I would go so far as to call myself the top short sale agent in Sacramento, but then I don't have to because the Sacramento Press said it for me. OK, I'm laughing a little over this because I never claimed that title in our interview but I must haven given that impression to the r...
The temperature in Sacramento hit 108 on June 28th, the hottest it's ever been on that day  (my birthday) since Sacramento record-keeping began in 1900. Now, for those of you who have never had the pleasure of visiting Sacramento, a temperature of 108 might seem abnormally high, but it's really n...
One of the coolest birthday presents I have ever received was a wind chime made out of tiny, ceramic, hand-painted houses. Because my friends know that real estate is my passion. I met a buyer last week who is the same age as me. Let's say her name is Patricia. She called to say she was looking a...
If you're thinking about buying a Sacramento short sale, find out if the lender is Countrywide before you pursue it. If you discover the original loan or loans are held by Countrywide, you may want to cross your forefingers, hiss and walk backwards. Countrywide, which is now owned by Bank of Amer...

I am excited that About.com has now given me tools that allow reader feedback on my articles at my homebuying website. One of my most popular articles, How Short Sales Affect Credit, now has a Reader Response link. I updated that portion this morning. If you've been wondering how a short sale may...
An agent cornered me in my Lyon Real Estate office a while back to ask why I bother with short sales. He could not believe that I can actually earn a living in real estate by being a Sacramento short sale agent. I have no fear of short sales because I am pretty much a fearless person. I was stand...
I love going to rock concerts. Except for the part where I fall asleep at 10 PM because it's past my bedtime. So, sometimes my husband rents a music DVD. We close up the windows and crank up the surround sound. The cats don't like it much, though. But it gives us front row VIP seats to the band w...
Now, I know what you're thinking: Oh, she just made up that blog title about a Sacramento short sale agent making a porno to attract attention, right? Well, yes and no. See, my husband and I watched that 2008 movie "Zack and Miri Make a Porno" last night. If you haven't seen it that delightful fi...
