As Sacramento Realtors (and Realtors everywhere else in the country today), we continually have to fight misconceptions and falsehoods about our profession. We occasionally run into clients who initially harbor a mistrust of agents in this profession, and we certainly don't need a syndicated real...

Sometimes I wonder if buyers' agents are looking for the easy way out when they suggest that buyers submit a request for repair. Maybe they don't want to take the time to explain how real estate works in Sacramento and, perhaps, they've been successful in the past with getting a seller to agree t...

When I shared with my sister yesterday what happened at Taylor's Market in Land Park, she texted back: Ha, You're too honest. You know, I don't think there is anyway a person can be too honest. Well, in retrospect, I guess not using discretion would be one way to be too honest. Like when a woman ...

The thing about doing a little research when writing my blogs is I always learn something new. I prefer to fact-check statements I make for accuracy, because many people rely on information I provide. Just because I happened to be around and working in the real estate business when certain histor...

Every so often I receive emails from well-meaning buyer's agents who are trying their darndest to do a good job for their buyers but come across as an agent who has not given one thought to the message delivered.

You think you fall in love with beautiful homes, and then your eyes grace this image. This is a luxury home that is for sale in Loomis. It is not my listing but this adorable 15-year-old girl sent me an email yesterday thinking erroneously that it was. She made this assumption based on the fact t...

Not every Sacramento Realtor has developed a fine appreciation for luxury homes, much less lives in one of those expensive homes, but it's easier to sell million dollar homes if the home resonates with the agent. It's harder to sell those types of homes if an agent dosen't know the difference bet...

Since we were in the area anyway, what the hey, it seemed like a good idea to plan a trip to La Casa Grande, otherwise known as the main house at Hearst Castle in San Simeon. We grabbed a quick breakfast at The Oaks Hotel in Paso Robles and headed downtown to shop at a few stores before driving 4...

Initially, Barb and I had tickets to see Mickey Dolenz in Sacramento last spring at The Crest Theatre. But suddenly the show was canceled without any reason. Our money refunded. Curious about that, I searched online to see what was up. Turns out Mickey was able to negotiate a sweeter deal, even i...

The proximity of these Beazer-built homes to downtown Sacramento is incredible. Your driving time is less than 10 minutes. Because who wants to spend their life in a car on the freeway, except a few Natomas Realtors like me, I suppose. But there are other benefits to buying this home in Natomas t...
