My favorite time of the year in Land Park is the month of April. Yeah, some people moan and groan and say they could do without more rain, but you really can't beat our springtime weather. The roses are bursting into first bloom, which means I'll probably run over to my Clarksburg listing and sho...
Kids today live in a much different world than I experienced growing up. Some parents center their lives around their children. Would little Aiden like to walk with us to Vic's Ice Cream after dinner? Would Emma like to play Rock Star with us tonight? When I was a kid, my father used to kick me o...
The thing about being a Land Park agent is I never know how my days will go. Heck, that's true for any real estate agent. We might think we have organized our day but anything can happen. I believe it was John Lennon who said, "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans." It...
Two flocks of geese are noisily flying in formation over Land Park as I write this. Because I live in Land Park, I have a special affinity for this neighborhood and a fondness for the birds. Over the past few weeks, I've spotted cedar waxwings in my yard, and I almost never see these birds in my ...

I tell my clients that texting me is not always the best way to ensure that I'll receive a message. That's because I sometimes delete my unread text messages by mistake during a deleting frenzy.

If you just bought a home in Land Park, you may be wondering how you can get fresh fruits and vegetables delivered from a community supported agriculture project (CSA). Let me share with you how my husband and I do it. We live in Land Park and love receiving our weekly boxes of organic vegetables...
SB 401, introduced by California Senator Wolk, has been signed into law on April 12 by Governor Schwarzenegger. The legislation allows taxpayers of owner-occupied homes to immediately exclude from their 2009 through 2012 income tax returns the amount of mortgage debt forgiven by the lender in a s...
I have a lousy sense of direction. When I was filling out a profile sheet for MLS at a seller's home in Roseville yesterday, I noted that the archived listing showed the home facing west. But it didn't feel like it was facing west to me. So, I asked the sellers which direction it faced. They didn...
Agents and clients sometimes ask me how I can be in such a good mood when I'm a Sacramento short sale agent.  Why is my voice mail message so cheery? In part, I suspect it's because they hear all the horror stories about short sales and the toll they can take on an agent. How sometimes lenders de...
