For this Sacramento Realtor, I am moving into my 3-month listing frenzy for Sacramento: April, May and June. I thought March would be busier than it was, but we had a really good month of sales in Sacramento for March. Respectable. Nothing to complain about. As a result, I'm also embarking on a 3...
The Sacramento Association of Realtors established an awards program which recognizes agents for outstanding production. When you look at the program, you might wonder why not every agent is a member of it because the bar is not that high. It's hard when you're starting out in real estate, but af...
Sometimes, before I write my morning blog, unless there is some pressing issue on my mind, I often read through a few posts on Active Rain. Without fail, there is always a gem to motivate me. This morning's credit goes to Jon Kolsky in Long Beach. I wrote a lengthy response to his blog, and then ...
Price is not everything in this market as home buyers have willingly demonstrated for us over and over. It's just part of the equation but not the entire picture. Buyers are feeling squeezed out of the Sacramento market because they can't find anything to buy. Homes that they originally passed ov...

I woke up to two horrible things this morning. The first is horrid news from clients I've been working with on fixing up their home. I helped them to find contractors, gave them a list of improvements to make to increase their resale value, and estimated a future price point for market, including...
Last year at this time I was somewhere in Death Valley, marveling in awe at the absolute wonders of nature I never before believed were possible unfolding in front of my eyes, in between negotiating counter offers for a home in Elk Grove, in the Stonelake subdivision. Remember that like yesterday...
When I was a kid growing up in Minneapolis, we spent a lot of our time outdoors at Minnehaha Falls and playing along the Mississippi River. Unlike some people, I find Mississippi easy to spell. In fact, we learned how to spell Mississippi in grade school as a jingle: mis - sis - si - ppi. I still...
Last Thursday, I called three vendors about installing a floor at one of my listings in the Sacramento area. Only one person returned my call and, after our conversation, although he could not perform the job at hand, we talked long enough that I will hire him to do other work around my own resid...
