Keeping buyer's agents happy is a huge part of my job. Because if a buyer's agent ain't happy, that short sale ain't closing. Buyers agents have an enormous job in any Sacramento short sale. They are the magical key. They are the hard-working, behind-the-scenes guys who manage buyer expectations....
In between picking up lockboxes yesterday for several short sale closings, I decided to drop in at the Apple store in Arden Mall. I've been toying with the idea of dumping my Sony PC laptop. I work primarily on a Mac Pro desktop computer and use a laptop for travel / client appointments. Been a M...
My husband could not understand why I booked a trip to the Big Island yesterday. He was complaining that we just got back from a trip and now I'm making him leave Sacramento again, but then he doesn't sell short sales. About the only time out of the year that I can get away for an extended period...
Almost every short sale I handle in Sacramento is a rejected loan modification. So, it is rare to have sellers call to say the bank has offered them a loan modification in the middle of a short sale but sometimes it happens. When they ask for my opinion, should they do a loan modification or a sh...
Here is something weird. Usually at this time of year, the real estate business slows down. Typically, December real estate sales are the lowest out of any month of the year. But that's not happening this year in short-sale land. Maybe it's because I'm a Sacramento short sale agent and I deal pri...
You can't be effective in the real estate business, much less in the Sacramento short sale business, if you don't pull your little ostrich head out of the computer every now and then and get outside. Granted, it may be raining, but I think we all need to reconnect with nature just to get a littl...
Jerry Brown filed a complaint last Wednesday, November 10th, on behalf of the People of the State of California against a hair product company. It's a lawsuit against Brazilian Blowout. Now, I'm not a big adapter of new trends until they are proven, just as a general course of action. I didn't ru...
The nice thing about staying at a hotel is generally the window coverings block all incoming light in the mornings and, if your room is on a higher floor, away from the elevators, it can be pretty quiet. No light + no sound = sleeping in late. Normally, I am used to the sound of the morning newsp...
Where is the story of fraud, I ask you? The Sacramento Bee runs this ugly mugshot from the U. S. Attorney's office of some real estate agent accused of smuggling at the border and says he can still sell real estate. The implication is whoa, your agent could be a crook and you wouldn't even know i...
Every so often I have to get up from sitting in front of my monitor and venture out into the real world to meet up with people. I pretty much have to, you know, in order to stay sane. When asked to lunch by another Active Rain member whom I greatly respect, I immediately said yes. I guess you wou...
