OK, not me, personally, but some other Sacramento short sale agent. It's the listing agents who can hold up the short sale process and caus...
As I poke through my spam filters, I recognize a recurring theme. Seems like all of the junk mail I get falls into 3 categories. And no, it's not drugs, sex and rock 'n' roll like you'd think. Nothing nearly as much fun as that.  Mostly it's about gambling, which I don't do, or crash diets, no in...
Early February a seller called to ask if I would mind stopping by her home after hours. It was dark when I arrived. She lived in the back unit of a duplex in East Sacramento. Most entry-level homes in East Sacramento are selling briskly these days as prices have softened a little bit and financin...

It's a fun time of year because maple trees are leafing out, roses are beginning to bloom and I feel like jumping in my car, putting down the top and zooming around mountain roads like a crazy woman. But no,...
If you've ever wanted a unique home in Elk Grove, this short sale might be for you. It has some really cool features that are missing from your traditional 3-bedroom homes in Elk Grove in this price range. Homes with these features typically cost a lot more. For starters, many of the rooms have p...
I read that the cast of Happy Days is suing for non-payment of revenue. Well, the Fonz and Howard aren't suing but they probably don't need the money -- or maybe it would burn bridges for future negotiations -- hard to say why they aren't jumping into the suit.
