There are lots of places to play pool in Midtown Sacramento, as we discovered yesterday by checking out pool halls in Google. It was early afternoon on Memorial Day, after we finished with our early morning activities and reading. What to do, what to do. Every idea I came up with my husband shot ...

Have you ever had an agent call you all upset over something and was unable to clearly enunciate the problem? I'm sure you have. Not only do we deal with our client's emotions in the Sacramento real estate business, but we also need to manage the emotional rollercoasters some buyer agents present...

It seems easy to get reviews as a home inspector and to post those reviews online because, I hate to say, most buyers who post reviews don't really understand their home inspections. It's not a world in which they live. For example, they don't know how electricity works. To some people it's magic...

I did not know what hospice was when my mother died. My sister said she was in hospice and I thought it was like a rehabilitation center that was somehow connected to the hospital. I figured I'd see her again when she got out. She was always in the hospital for something, a place where I have rar...

At what point does a listing agent need to take responsibility for the buyer's agent's performance or knowledge? Well, I say never. It is not my job to ask the buyer's agent if he checked the comparable sales or discussed the value of the home with the buyer. I personally do not care whether the ...

I do not know if other listing agents go into great detail about why the seller rejected a bunch of offers but I do know that I do not. Although I am asked all of the time. Sometimes repeatedly. There is no upside to explaining why. On top of this, disgruntled buyers who feel the world is out to ...

I have a listing in which every time a person enters the home, the seller sends me pictures of the intruders, er, visitors, from his security camera. I get to watch them on the front steps, wandering through the living room, opening closets and peering into bathrooms. It seems creepy to me, but t...

Who doesn't like Motown music? Nobody, that's who. I don't know a single person my age who doesn't have fond memories of that time period, from the early 1960s into the 1980s. You get a chance at this musical to see Michael Jackson as a kid, and Diana Ross, and the famous Berry Gordy, along with ...

This goes beyond the usual tracking of leaves or dirt into the entry. But it is still unusual to receive a phone call from my seller after a home inspection because the home inspectors left the home in a mess or, worse, unsecured. Although, I will say that once a seller told me he went around the...
