I've been pretty busy lately listing short sales throughout Sacramento and in Land Park. In fact, I just listed another short sale home in Land Park last night. This is a home that had previously been on the market for a long time, listed with several other real estate agents at prices that buyer...
I have to tell you that there is a dead spot for cellphone reception on Serrano Parkway.  And sometimes, you'll get a little winter fog in the hills in early morning. As I drove up to my new short sale listing in El Dorado Hills yesterday, fog hugged the trees and homes, but the valley was comple...
Some people would say that when a person looks back on the path one's life has taken and decides to make changes, it's because one has reached a "certain age." Personally, I disagree, probably because I'm the type of person who often reflects on the direction I am moving and wonders if that direc...
It seems like forever since we've sealed off the dining room and living room from the rest of our house. The pass-through window between the kitchen and living room has a sheet of plastic taped over it, and the other 3 doors are closed, much to the dismay of our cats. You know how cats are, right...

I love it when I turn on my computer in the morning and find a short sale approval letter sitting in my inbox. Sort of sets the mood for the day. And even though I get up at 5 AM most mornings, those banks on the East Coast are still ahead of me. The approval letter I received this morning is for...
During Gov. Schwarzenneger's State of the State address at the state Capitol today, the governor announced a new proposal for another home buyer tax credit of $10,000. It was received by a big round of applause. Of course, you don't hear that applause when you skim through the goofy comments left...
I receive a lot of interesting emails from readers all over the country. I do my best to answer questions. Many of those questions center on short sales, probably because I write a lot about short sales and enjoy a strong internet presence as a Sacramento short sale agent. But since selling short...
The floor refinisher, Brian, and I engaged in a conversation yesterday about the tack cloth. He didn't know what I referring to because it's not something, I suppose, that he uses. My concern was removing every bit of dust from the floor before Brian put on the first coat. Brian is very patient w...
The year of 2010 is starting out very busy. I thought this weekend would be fairly quiet, but I guess as people sat around watching football or perhaps recovering from New Year's Eve activities, they started to think about buying and selling real estate in Sacramento. That's because I received a ...
