What's the worst thing that could happen to an East Sacramento agent? Or to any real estate agent, for that matter? Well, apart from rolling over a guard rail in the rain. Over the last week, 2 vehicles at different locations slid off the freeway while going around a curve and landed on the road ...
A seller called me a saint yesterday. She could not understand why I was hanging in there for her and trying to close her short sale after everything that has happened. Her Sacramento short sale is a double Countrywide -- meaning it has 2 loans that originated with Countrywide, which is now owned...
After trudging around in the rain yesterday from 9 AM to 6 PM showing property, it was a welcome relief to come home and change into dry shoes. Note to self: wear boots in this weather! Our Sacramento storms have not let up, and tomorrow is expected to be worse than today. But the good news is on...
Because today is a holiday for most people, I booked back-to-back appointments this morning to show homes in Land Park, Midtown and East Sacramento. Which means my email in-box and voice mail will most likely be full by the time I return to my home office. If I never stepped foot out of my office...
I don't know about you, but I've seen some Sacramento short sales offered at $175,000 in areas and conditions you wouldn't want your dog to live in.

OK, I admit it. I'm one of those obnoxiously organized people you read about. I have systems for everything because it keeps me efficient. I'm also rarely late for a meeting. If I make an appointment with another person -- doesn't matter who it is, a buyer for homes in Land Park, a Sacramento sho...
It's hard, at times, to tell if a person is joking around or not when you receive an email. I am not a big fan of smiley faces, but against my better judgment, I can be guilty of slipping them into emails. That's because not everybody appreciates my wry sense of humor. And sometimes I'm so busy t...
One of the million-dollar questions that I receive from Sacramento short sale sellers is when should they stop showing their homes. The answer to that question depends on the individual short sale, they are each unique, but typically the answer is when the seller has accepted an offer. However, i...
When I drive buyers around to show homes in Land Park, I sometimes point out the homes on Vallejo Way, between Land Park Drive and 14th Street, which I listed and sold. I tell buyers how I sold that entire block on the north side of Vallejo Way. Which is true. But I also quickly point out that th...
