You would not believe what the drugstore told me yesterday when I asked it to reset my security question. If you may recall, I was trying to reorder my cat's Prozac but I could not recall the answer to some stupid question because I have too damn many childhood heroes. Their customer service depa...
This morning I have been trying to reorder my cat's prozac prescription through an online drugstore. Yeah, my cat has his own account online. For some reason his account isn't working -- probably because his password has been temporarily misplaced in those boxes up in my attic. So, I asked for a ...
Last week's show on NBC's hilarious Community was about Abed taking a class that analyzed the question of who was the boss in that old TV show with Tony Danza and Judith Light. You know, Who's the Boss? I'll give you a clue, it's not Tony Danza. Community is perhaps one of the best 22-minute sitc...
Whenever I talk about crooked real estate agents, I get a ton of emails from agents protesting the term. I get asked: Why do you have to bring up crooked short sale agents? Why make consumers think that real estate agents are unethical or crooked? Well, I hate to say this but consumers already be...
Some of my clients hire lawyers to negotiate their short sales in Sacramento. Do you need a lawyer for a short sale? Sometimes.

Although a bipartisan bill has been introduced to the legislature to shorten short sale approval periods to 45 days, I wouldn't get your hopes up that short sales will be processed faster.  Congressmen Tom Rooney and Bob Andrews introduced this bill on April 12th: Prompt Decision for Qualificatio...
You'd think I would be happy that the Feds have reached initial agreements with some of the big banks over this foreclosure mess, but in many ways it's like the foxes guarding the hen house. So much of it is political bones thrown at starving dogs. The government doesn't do enough and everybody k...
I wish my sister was of the mindset to move to Sacramento right now. Because I would tell her to buy this home. It's located just south of Curtis Park in a delightful neighborhood few know about. I've sold several homes in this area to single women home buyers. It's close to almost everything. An...
If I had to name any regret I have with my life, it would be that I did not take the time when I was younger to learn a foreign language. I tried German when I was in third grade, but the best I mustered was to sing O Tannenbaum. I dabbled a little in Russian, and then tried Spanish. But I can't ...
This home in Land Park is offered as a short sale. It has two very large bedrooms, one of which is a master suite. I suppose if you weren't going to put a ferris wheel in the back yard, it could be possible to add on a new master suite and turn the existing master into a junior suite. Or you coul...
