I took a photo of my cat Horatio yesterday, plopped eyeballs and a mouth on him and turned him into Horatio the Talking Cat. It's an app that produces a cool video on your cellphone that you can send to anybody via text or email. You can use any object, either shoot a photo with your phone or cho...

There was a time when I once thought you could choose a real estate agent based on her commission rate, and that a cheaper agent was better, but I was still sucking my thumb at that age. When I grew up, got older, more experienced and hopefully wiser, I know today that it is not true and, in fact...

One of the things about yourself that some people really struggle to learn is that you can just about always trust your gut instincts. But some people don't trust themselves to make the right decisions so they feel conflicted. I say trust yourself. You won't lead yourself down the wrong road. For...

There is something about this particular photograph that speaks to so many possible issues in Sacramento real estate, but to me the guy looks like a ditz. Maybe it's his shoes, probably European, or his over-sized feet. The shoes are too clean, as though he never walked up the driveway. And I don...

Seller laugh when I tell them this, but it's true that when I receive a purchase offer the first thing that pops into my head is generally not: oh, goodie, we've got an offer, it's: what is this buyer trying to pull. It's my nature to be cynical. It's not that buyers are purposely trying to cover...

Well, I had to pay the price a little bit for going on that hike Sunday when I had two open houses going on by working through dinner. It's not that I have to be physically present at the Open because that's my team members' jobs. They work with buyers so they hold the houses open, and we had a t...

This is a Spotted Towhee we caught along the Mitchell Creek trail at Mount Diablo singing his fool head off. Yes, spring is upon us. There is only so much sitting in front of my computer and selling Sacramento real estate one can do before one finally decides to get out in nature. This is the thi...

True fact, I almost moved to Curtis Park when I relocated to Sacramento in 2002. My husband and I looked at a ton of homes in East Sacramento, made offers on several and lost, a bunch in Land Park and Midtown, but it was Curtis Park that captures the heart. Even though it is right next to Land Pa...

My basic plan is never deliver bad news without a solution that offers good news as an alternative. That principle has served me well over the years. It's reduced the emotions that can arise when an agent is placed in the position of delivering bad news. And emotions can run the gamut from anger ...

I have sold other homes in Antelope Highlands but this particular listing is a cut above the rest. It's been so meticiously maintained. It's not unusual for an agent to experience a heightened pleasure when presented with the opportunity to sell a beautiful home. But even a beautiful home can gen...
