You could probably build a pretty good case against funnel cakes from this photograph. Yesterday was warm, sunny and in the low 70s, which was perfect weather to visit Santa Cruz from Sacramento. Where else do you go in Santa Cruz for a little excitement and beachy stuff but the Boardwalk? This ...

One of the things they don't tell you about success is there are people who will become obsessed with you. And not in a good way. It's like who in the world could hate somebody as sweet as Ellen DeGeneres, who wouldn't hurt a fly, but there are crazies who do. It might not surprise you to know s...

You might think on my 60th birthday that I would talk about something other than a short sale. But if you know me, you would know how nuts that thought would be. Because I talk about short sales all day long. Just ask my husband. He's sick and tired of it. And now he's gonna be locked in an ocean...

Nobody likes to be backed into a corner. Which is why a buyer's agent in a short sale needs to verify whether the short sale approval letter matches the HUD. The HUD should match the purchase contract. If there are variances in the fees, guess who is likely to pay them? I'll give you a hint, it's...

You either like snakes or you don't. I'm not fond of slithering. I once came across a snake in my yard when I lived in Minneapolis, and I grabbed the garden hose and sprayed it into oblivion. My sister, on the other hand, loves reptiles. She keeps frozen mice in the freezer for her snake. When it...

"WANTED: Someone to go back in time with me. This is not a joke. You'll get paid after we get back. Must bring your own weapons. I have only done this once before. SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED." As part of my Sunday-off from selling Sacramento real estate activities, my husband and I went to a movie at ...

People ask me how I manage to take time off when I sell so many homes in Sacramento. How many, you might ask? Over the past year (according to MLS) this Sacramento real estate agent has sold 112 homes, maybe more. I figure that production is about 20 times the amount that your average, run-of-the...

An agent who got kicked out of a transaction accused me recently of not working for the banks. That's right, Sherlock. In a Sacramento short sale, I work for the seller. I am not an REO agent. I don't work for the banks. I am a Sacramento real estate agent who has a fiduciary relationship primari...

A Zip Realty agent told me yesterday about a seller in foreclosure who committed suicide due to the actions of a buyer. A buyer who wrote multiple offers on many short sales, including this particular seller's home. The buyer flaked so the seller pulled the trigger. A Zip Realty agent reportedly ...

Short sale banks will do whatever the banks want. As a Sacramento short sale agent, I witness flagrant and cavalier attitudes toward law over and over. It especially doesn't matter if the transaction is a HAFA short sale, the banks find ways to circumvent federal regulations. Some of them just fl...
