Everybody knows that this Sacramento real estate agent mostly works with sellers in the Sacramento region; as such, it means I help them to get their homes ready for sale, especially when those homes are cluttered. It takes a lot of patience, kindness and a sense of humor. On a side note, it's al...

I think the CAR legal hotline is not really designed to dispense free legal advice an agent can depend upon but to direct a Sacramento real estate agent to obtain legal representation if required. Yet, when I talk to other real estate agents, it seems that they tend to believe the free advice the...

Aside from treating all parties with honesty, part of my job as a Sacramento real estate agent is to examine purchase offers for red flags. I try not to be dishonest and I expect the same from others, even though I am sometimes disappointed. It's so much easier in life to tell the truth -- that's...

I hear from my own highly experienced team members how difficult it is to get an offer accepted in today's Sacramento real estate market. We generally strategize and work together on purchase offers.

Next, I managed to back into a cement block and scrape a plastic piece on the back of my car while at the hairdresser in East Sacramento....

This morning, not for lack of anything better to do, I rip into Chase Bank because it feels so good to stop talking about its inept short sale HELOC department. Those second loans at Chase Bank are like a thorn in our sides in Sacramento, especially during a HAFA short sale, because Chase does no...

I have a very nervous seller of a home in Elk Grove who needs to find a replacement property for a 1031 Exchange and is worried about it. I have closed many 1031 Exchanges in my life, so they are not a mystery to me. The federal laws are fairly consistent. The investor has 45 days (basically, wit...

I am grateful every single day for my career as a top-producing Sacramento real estate agent and all that it entails. I take little for granted. When new real estate agents ask me what they can do to get started in real estate, I tell them to pay their dues. Because there are dues to be paid. Onc...

Home buyers who can't close within the time specified in the purchase contract could be in a for a rude awakening in Sacramento. Sellers are not readily issuing extensions. In fact, some sellers will say to heck with you, Miss Buyer, I'm putting my home back on the market and taking advantage of ...
