Little disrupts a household more than when your four-legged critter is not up to par. You just want to do something to make them feel better, but since they can't talk to you about it or point to a place that is causing pain or discomfort, the best we can do is take them to the vet.In my case, it...

Your experiences may vary, but mine show that many real estate agents never stop to think about the consequences of their actions when it comes to helping their clients.

It is almost unbelievable that I am still selling a big percentage of the short sales in Sacramento because so many of my sales month after month are from sellers who have equity.

When you don't live in the same state as most of your family, it can be hard to say goodbye when it's time to leave them.
