When I think about why a buyer and the buyer's agent might want a Sacramento listing agent to answer why the buyer's offer was rejected, it reminds me a little bit of the reasons a listing agent might wonder why a particular seller didn't list with her. I'm not immune from such a thing, and it ha...
When I list a home in Sacramento, in addition to preparing my visual inspection and trying to work up fabulous marketing verbiage to sell the home, I look for the drawbacks, the things a buyer might object to. If it's within the reality of affordability to improve and it could change how a home b...
There was a short sale bank negotiator a few years ago who demanded that I change the marketing comments because the negotiator took offense to the way I elected to describe a home for sale. Like the negotiator has any control over how a Sacramento REALTOR and her seller choose to market the home...
Ever since my husband and I were introduced to Kistler Chardonnay at Sante Restaurant in Sonoma a few months back, I can't stop obsessing over this wine. You don't see it on wine lists everywhere, although, the La Mer Restaurant in Honolulu carries it. Lately I've been reading about wine. I'm alm...

One of the first jobs my mother held as a teenager, besides serving ice cream at Bridgemann's, was that of a chicken plucker at a chicken factory in Saint Paul. The chickens would come down the assembly line with their broken necks and feet still attached, while factory workers would grab them an...
There is a big difference after closing a real estate transaction between a buyer's agent who calls to say hey your seller received a package at the house and the buyer put it on the front porch for them and the agent who calls to say her buyer believes the seller lied or twisted some fact and th...
It is very rare that I don't ask a client to give me a five-star review after escrow closes, unless for some reason I forget. I try to email each and every client to request a review. Sometimes, it is too much work for them, and they are too busy, and I understand. Some websites require registrat...
This January things are starting off with a bang, very different from last January. Most years in early January the real estate business in Sacramento starts to pick up from the winter doldrums. It's why I take a month off and go on a winter vacation from December 10 to January 10 because there's...
