I still want to learn how to sail a Hobie cat and ride a jet-ski, and I've got another 18 hours or so left in 2012 to do it, if I plan to squeeze those activities into this year. Maybe I won't. Maybe I will roll those new learning experiences in 2013. See, that's the beauty of lounging about on t...

Chris Ann Cleland wrote a blog about how an agent in her office views closing a transaction. It inspired me to write a blog this morning about what happens at closing for a Sacramento short sale agent. I had a bunch of closings on Friday and a bunch more will close on Monday. It's year end for t...

The thing about California purchase contracts for real estate is they favor the buyer. Our real estate contracts created by C.A.R. give buyers by default 17 days to cancel an escrow for any reason or really no reason at all. They don't need a reason to cancel. Buyers are free to cancel a contract...

No trip to Rangiroa is complete without a visit to Gauguin's Pearl Farm, or so the guidebooks tell you. I generally find tours of family operations to be very interesting and enlightening in general, and this tour was no exception. It was astonishing to see how cultured pearls are created. I say ...

About an hour away by boat (from Tiputa Pass near Kia Ora Resort) is an island with a blue lagoon -- a lagoon within a lagoon. It is called Lagon Bleu or Blue Lagoon. I think there was some hokey movie made about this type of lagoon with Brooke Shields that I'd prefer not to think about when I he...

Us little island hoppers. We left Tahiti and flew to Rangiroa two days ago, and it's been total bliss ever since. Forget about oceanfront, let me tell you, the lagoon inside an atoll is the way to go. This is truly paradise, although I have to admit that I have not yet been to the Blue Lagoon, an...

I admit that I've been a little busy lately. Oh, at dinner last night my husband asked if I realized that for the last 10 minutes I had been rambling on about Fannie Mae and how it is defiantly refusing to do short sales all of a sudden under the guise of demanding ridiculous values, when all aro...

Relying on Wi-Fi or what I like to call the Kindness of Strangers totally sucks. It's ranks right up there with sleeping under a bridge. I liked it much better when everything was self contained. You didn't have to rely on an Internet connection or technology to get your job done. No sirree, in t...

Even if you've read the book cover to cover a million times, I think you will still enjoy the movie, The Hobbit. Especially if you get a chance to see it in Sacramento in 3D and high-speed. The guy at the ticket counter at Century Stadium in Sacramento gave us a little pre-rehearsed speech about ...

The month of December is shaping up to be an excellent month for closing Sacramento short sales. It's not my best month all year, but 11 or 12 closings this month ain't shabby. And that doesn't count the residual, just my individual efforts. But due to the mortgage debt relief expiring and everyb...
