OK, maybe it was my short sales from the last 10 years that taught me patience in Sacramento real estate, hard to say. When you've working on a transaction and it takes you 3 years to close it, you learn to roll with the punches. When you're told no time and time again yet you plunge forward, bri...

As a buyer's agent, you probably would say no to Coming Soon listings and think why do it because it draws too much attention or not enough attention or makes the home appear dated before it ever makes its debut or the sign is ugly, or I dunno. But I suspect most buyer's agents don't want their b...

Everybody is talking about what a fabulous year 2015 was for real estate in Sacramento -- OK, it was for some of us -- and wondering where we are headed in 2016. It's always in the numbers. Sure, I can lick my finger and hold it up to see which way the wind blows, but it won't tell me as much as ...

Just had another transaction in which orangeburg sewer lines were discovered during a sewer inspection, even though the sellers had received a clean report from their own plumbing company. You can see the orangeburg blistering and bubbling in the lovely sewer inspection video, with tree roots sne...

It's a myth, you know, that ostriches stick their heads in the sand to avoid predators. It's not a myth, however, that my goofy cat Jackson will hide behind the drapes and think we don't spot his big fat butt sticking out. If his eyes are hidden and he can't see us, he thinks we can't see him. He...

It happened so quickly and quietly, like almost overnight, the movie theaters in Sacramento began to vanish. Every so often, though, I will go to the movies by myself, something most people probably think is disturbing or it would make them uncomfortable. Like going out to eat as a solo diner mak...

We drove to Davis on Sunday to see Spotlight, the movie with Mark Ruffalo about the investigative reporting by the Boston Globe concerning the cover up of hundreds of Catholic priest molestation cases. Granted, a not-so-cheery topic yet interesting. I seem to drive to Davis a lot, and was just th...

One of the things I sort of dislike about being a Natomas Realtor and top-producing Sacramento real estate agent is having to promote myself. This is not one of those things that comes easily to a person. Oh, I can promote some other company or individual like gangbusters, but doing it for myself...

If you're like me, you'll probably be shocked. I keep thinking about installing solar panels on my house. At one point we were told by SMUD that we didn't qualify because one of our trees provided shade over 10% of our roof, but that tree has since long crashed into the house during a winter stor...

There have been several blogs over on Active Rain about real estate agents who promised to pay a referral fee when accepting a local referral from an out-of-area agent and then tried to find a way to get out of the agreement or otherwise just flat-out refused when the time came to ante up. That b...
