When I take a listing, I am always concerned with where the sellers will move. Unless they specifically request a rent-back or we've negotiated a hold over for a few days, most sellers need to be out of the property by 6 PM on the day we close in Sacramento. This is almost unheard of in other par...
When people ask me how I manage to balance my home life and work life, it's easy for me to answer because I really don't try to balance at all. And I don't feel guilty about it, either. It's like an unspoken pact between my husband and myself. During the hours of 7 AM and 7 PM, I focus on my Sacr...
That's such a loaded question: What can go wrong during a Sacramento escrow? It's almost like asking somebody if they'd like to move into your home for a few days while you take the time to explain all the ways things can go sideways in a real estate transaction.I don't spend a lot of time going ...
A lot of pranks and whatnot seem to go on in Elk Grove lately, and I'm not really sure why. A few months back, some vandals swiped a For Sale sign out of a yard and hauled it over to the Elk Grove High School campus on Elk Grove-Florin. I suppose it beats burning down homes in Elk Grove.Another p...
It is with such rarity that I ever eat at a chain restaurant, and partly that's because there are so many really excellent places to dine at but also because my husband tries to avoid chain restaurants. Although I did drag him to a Spaghetti Factory once because, seriously, how badly can one scre...
What is better than crawling out of bed in the morning and stepping barefoot into cat puke? You don't want to know. And I'm not gonna tell you except to say I had to put up with it again this morning. We have 3 cats, oy. One of those cats is not doing very well, and now I have to figure out what ...
My husband booked a home with a pool in Las Vegas for his Boy's Weekend coming up through AirBnb and, two days prior to arrival, the homeowner canceled on him. There's nothing a traveler can do about it. One can't even leave a bad review on AirBnb. They're allowed to get away with that kind of be...
Some yo-yo in New Castle, Colorado, called yesterday to ask if am taking listings in Sacramento. I asked him if this was a telemarketing call, and he said no, he just wanted to know if I was available to take listings. I told him that a weird question and asked what he wanted. He still wouldn't a...
I suppose it is possible that a few phone messages got caught up in the celltowers on Sunday when my husband and I were completely out of cellphone range. When you're touring a ghost town and an old hydraulic gold mine north of Nevada City from Sacramento, there is no coverage with any cellphone ...
The South Yuba River is a wild river, unencumbered by locks, dams or resevoirs and left in its natural state, which is unusual in California. We drove over the South Yuba River on our way to the Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park north of Nevada City in the foothills of Sacramento. This is a pl...
