Some people don't have a very high opinion of real estate agents. If you ask them what they think about real estate agents, they might say that agents are money-grabbing, money-hungry thieves who are no better than a snake in the grass. I say those people are giving agents too much credit. Agents...

Reading Mike Watson's blog this morning gave me the inspiration for mine. That's one of the great things about belonging to an online group like this -- apart from the fact that if AR would have me as a member, maybe I shouldn't belong -- but I get great ideas from other writers. In one of my Sac...

Sometimes buyers do the screwiest things. Stuff that makes no sense whatsoever. It makes me wonder if perhaps they don't suffer from some kind of attention deficit disorder, which is why they latch on to real estate agents and make offers on homes they have absolutely no intention of closing on. ...

Like Uncle Joe I'm moving kinda slow at the Junction this morning. There are no words to describe the feast we had last night. And I'm not talking about a Thanksgiving leftovers meal. We went to The Kitchen Restaurant for its Push the Palate special dinner. It's a quarterly event. If you've never...

You know what I hear some Sacramento real estate agents say about buyers? If mama ain't happy, nobody is happy -- meaning it's generally mama who keeps peace in the family. Because if you make mama happy, she'll make everybody else around her happy. And if you don't, she'll make everybody else m...

You know what I'm thankful for today? I'm thankful I'm not working in retail. I'm happy to be a short sale agent in Sacramento. Out of all the sales jobs in the world, I think retail is one of the worst. It's like the roofing job of sales. I mean, look at the construction industry. You could be a...

I'm tired of short sales being regarded as the ugly poster child of real estate by ignorant people. As a Sacramento short sale agent, I know how exactly Rodney Dangerfield feels. It's one of the reasons I bought that Bash 'Em in the Head t-shirt the day Myrl Jeffcoat and I went to Old Sacramento ...

Nobody ever believes me when I say I don't like to work too hard. I think that's because they look at what I accomplish and naturally assume that I work very hard to get there. But the truth is I am always looking for ways to work less hard and get more done. I'm lazy that way. I'll take the path...

I'm finding that buyers in Sacramento right now see no urgency in writing an offer. Doesn't matter whether the home is a short sale or a regular sale, buyers are acting as though they have all the time in the world. It's true that we have more inventory in Sacramento than a year ago, and that num...

I forgot that I had a taken a photo of my Land Park cactus garden last week. All the cacti have done extremely well this summer. People think that it's difficult to grow cactus in Sacramento, but I have a secret ingredient: Cactus Juice. It's a calcium-based fertilizer. You mix one teaspoon of C...
