No. You just don't begin a sentence with the word no. It's such a negative word. When I hear the word no, it makes me want to say, "Oh, yeah? I'll show you." But that's because I'm a trouble-maker. Hey, I'm a Sacramento short sale agent, gosh darn it, and that gives me the right to do whatever I ...
I've been rather lax lately in updating my mailing lists. That chore drops to the bottom of my priority list when I'm busy closing real estate transactions and listing homes for sale. But I have to do it by November if I want to mail out holiday cards to my clients in a timely manner. I also keep...
I was reading an article this morning about buying a private island. There are a lot of people who can't live on an island. They'd go nuts in isolation. They'd crave amenities and modern conveniences. Not me. I'd be happy as -- excuse the expression -- happy as a clam on an island. Well, I'd drag...
Fall comes late to Sacramento as compared to the rest of the country. Yesterday, as leaves whirled in the street, I pulled my car up to the curb at a short sale home in Elk Grove and waved to the 3 children playing in the driveway of this home. Children are often oblivious to the inner workings o...
My faith in the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) has been shaken. My faith in the California Association of REALTORS® (CAR) has been shaken. My faith in the Sacramento Board of REALTORS® (SAR) has been shaken, too. I have adopted and work by the REALTOR® Code of Ethics. That link takes you...
Sacramento short sale central. That's how I should probably answer my phone. Because I get a lot of phone calls from potential short sale sellers in the four-county Sacramento area. And I discovered something pretty strange this week. See, when a get a phone call, I typically print out the tax as...
I pride myself on my ability to communicate effectively but sometimes, like any busy short sale agent, I might slip a notch. I'm not infallible. Like a few days ago when a client asked me a question, and I answered by beginning my sentence with the word "no," followed by a fact. In retrospect, if...
My husband and I, despite being very different people as in female versus male, Mars vs. Venus, are very much alike in many ways. We share an affinity for the same books, music, films, and travel destinations. He can complete my sentences for me and doesn't get ticked off when I take a left turn ...
Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't. Have you ever noticed how complete decades can sometimes be defined by a single, silly, television commercial jingle? And how sometimes for absolutely no reason at all that jingle will pop into your head and you can't get it out? Well, since the...
Let me make myself perfectly clear -- I am not an obsessive / compulsive hoarder. Not about shoes, anyway. I am no Imelda Marcos, but I do have a decent collection in my closet and quite possibly can bring myself to admit that I enjoy a bit of a love affair with shoes. My husband doesn't understa...
