My husband has a problem with other Sacramento drivers. Whenever he spots a driver doing something erratic, he furls his eyebrows and grumbles: "Hang up the phone and drive." He always sees accidents waiting to happen. I see vehicles on the road. He sees trouble. That's because he's paying attent...
I just listed another short sale home, this time in Carmichael, and even managed to stop off for a manicure. With my days, it's hard to squeeze in time to get my nails done. Jeopardy was on the TV at the nail salon. I'm always astonished when I know the questions on Jeopardy, especially when the ...
Apparently, there is a lot of confusion in Sacramento about the federal and state home buyer tax credits. Many buyers and some buyer's agents do not understand that a home buyer has this small window of opportunity to claim both of the tax credits. The trick to getting the $8,000 federal tax cred...
Elvis Costello should move to Clarksburg, California. In fact, I have the perfect home for sale in Clarksburg. I was thinking about this when my husband and I went to the Mondavi Center in Davis last night to see Elvis Costello perform solo. It was sort of like the old days of MTV Unplugged. Exce...
"Where did you find this home inspector? I've never seen a home inspection like this before," the Midtown listing agent lamented, adding, "No wonder the buyers canceled!" After the home inspection on a 100-year-old home in Midtown, my buyers decided to cancel their escrow and go after a home in L...
I hate to admit this, but when I walk past my aquarium, I sometimes wish secretly to myself that my angelfish would die.

Sometimes I toy with the idea of buying a second cellphone. Then I could use that phone number solely for MLS agent calls and sign calls. I know some listing agents use a second phone for those purposes, and I suspect they send all their calls to voice mail. Except you don't need a phone to do th...
When I was a kid, we called Coca-Cola soda pop, or "pop" for short. That's how you can tell that I was raised in the Midwest and not in Sacramento. Now, people from the East Coast tend to refer to carbonated beverages as soft drinks. I've heard that in the South, everybody calls a soft drink "Cok...
Go ask Alice, when she's ten feet tall. Hey, I hear the Jefferson Starship will play at the casinos this spring. Hard to imagine that it's been 40 years since I was 17. Ah, I remember it like it was yesterday. The year was 1969. We had reserved seating on the first floor, but when the Jefferson A...
When Sacramento buyer's agents ask me how I know that I'll get short sale approval, the answer is easy. The odds are I will. And those are high odds, probably in the 90 percentiles. I might be biased, but I believe I'm an above average Sacramento short sale agent. It's hard to look at your own pe...
