As a standard practice, whenever I am close to closing out a transaction, I always email the sellers to remind them to leave the all the keys to the house, the mailbox key, the remote controls and any manuals in possession in a kitchen drawer. I let them know the buyer's agent will retrieve the k...
Maybe it's my years of short sale experience that taught me so much patience, or maybe it's after 40-some years in the real estate business that I don't really care how long it takes for a transaction to process if my seller in Carmichael is not yet ready to list his home. I'm not one of those ag...
It's been a real struggle over the past couple of days for me to talk, which means I've stopped trying. It's bad for my recovery to speak. How is a Sacramento Realtor supposed to work if she can't talk to people? I talk to people all the time throughout the day. I also answer my cellphone.Thank g...
When I explain my comparative market analysis to the sellers of a West Sacramento condo, I am very thorough. I want them to understand exactly where I pull prices from and why. Not any pie-in-the-sky. It's got to appraise when I sell it. They know the pros and cons of being aggressive and whether...

That was political politeness to the 10th degree. I'd like to see Preside...
I know there are people who will roll their eyes when you mention adding an extra bathroom to a house, signifying that they believe it is too complicated, takes too much time or it costs too much. None of which is really true. Yes, it can be the best thing you could do is to buy a one-bath home f...
What do you get when you toss an inexperienced Sacramento buyer's agent into the blender with a bad mortgage lender? Answer: A ruined blender that you have to throw out. It's not even worth plugging the blender into the wall to watch them spin around and around in a bloody mess. Straight into the...
Emails to Trulia help contacts bounced this morning, and I cannot find any link to notify Trulia that its listings are not showing up correctly. Of my four brand new homes just listed in the Elmhurst neighborhood in Sacramento, three are on Zillow, and I'm still struggling with Zillow Help Desk t...
It's been a little while since I have listed a Riverfront Plaza Condo for sale, as there generally are not very many sales in this complex. So far this year, only one condo has sold. At present, another is pending, and we have two on the market, one of which is my new listing.I am not trying to m...
