It's a relief that short sales in Sacramento have been on the decline. It means our economy is recovering and prices have rebounded. We're not quite back to where we were in 2005 when the downturn began, but I'd say we're at least at 2008 prices when the second big crash happened. Over the past 1...
This seller in Elk Grove was referred to me by a happy Elk Grove client whom I helped buy and sell several homes. I love to receive referrals, especially when a satisfied client is singing my praises, and I don't have to do it myself. It's a bit uncomfortable having to constantly market yourself ...
We were more prepared for our vacation in Spain, which ended early this month, than other trips. But we still were not prepared enough. Sometimes you want to play it by ear, but by going that route, you can miss things you really want to see. I'm finding I almost have to make lists of things to d...
These sellers were referred to me because they were specifically looking for a top producer agent in Sacramento. When I met with them, I could sense there was something eating at them, so I asked what it was. They are such a charming couple. The husband hemmed and hawed and said he felt uneasy, d...
I am a person who likes to improve things, and I rarely offer a criticism without coming up with corrective options. Because going around criticizing things all the time is a fairly negative way in which to live your life. But I do look for opportunities to improve. Especially as a veteran Realto...
Thanks to Lottie Kendall, I finally made it to see the Mosaic steps in San Francisco. My husband wanted to push off that excursion to our last day there, but that's when I had scheduled a massage, and we would not have gone. It would have been dangerously too close to our departure time to catch ...
I know I've been complaining a bit lately about the traffic between Sacramento and San Francisco. It's almost impossible to predict the best time to drive, although the last time we made it back to Sacramento leaving on a Sunday around 5 PM in an hour and forty-five minutes. The fastest time is u...
Slowly I am getting around to writing a few blogs about our trip last month to Spain and including the photographs. I don't want to overload my website or blog here with photographs and stories about our vacation because it would then sound like that's all we do, and people would either get bored...
I advise my team members who work with buyers to establish relationships with these people. Don't just run out with your lockbox key in hand to show a home in Sacramento without engaging in a conversation, preferably person-to-person in the office. This is a potential buyer with whom you'll be in...
I wonder at times if buyers think everybody in the real estate profession works in a large open office, with desks lined up in a row where everybody is chatting on the phone or waiting for customers. That all they have to do is wander down to the office to plunk their body in front of a live mort...
