 It's like flying first class, once you get used to it you can't go back to economy class without great difficulty or super short flights. Although, in all fairness, the seats in a movie theater are not getting squished more tightly together in order to accommodate more movie goers like airline c...

 The best way to buy a home when you're also selling a home in Sacramento is to own two homes at the same time for a while. This way, you are not trying to buy with a contingency to sell, which is fairly difficult in our multiple-offer situations. Generally the offer without a contingency to sell...

 My friend Tammy in Georgia would most likely recognize the vehicle in this photo as a fire engine. I know so little about fire departments, except that we have a fire department a couple of blocks away in Land Park. I did not realize there were differences between fire trucks and fire engines or...

 An agent on Active Rain struck a chord with me the other day when she expressed her disappointment with some buyer's agents who don't return the seller disclosures. Why, I recall when I started in this business in the 1970s and my broker at that time told me, like it's just expected, that real e...

 I happened upon a Q&A discussion yesterday about whether an agent should put a listing on the market right before a major holiday, like Memorial Day. It astonished me to read the responses, although it shouldn't have. Some agents don't think much beyond signing a listing and plopping it into MLS...

We're either in front of our computers or we're in the field talking with our clients, showing homes, t...

 When it comes to tooting my own horn, I reluctantly do it because I figure I do a better job at it than most others. Unfortunately, marketing yourself is a necessity in Sacramento real estate.  But it's really not something I like to do, even if I'm good at it. I don't want my message to be, hey...

 The way I hear it from my exclusive buyer's agents on the Elizabeth Weintraub Team, they are struggling with buyers when writing offers that contain free seller rent backs. The buyers tend to become a bit agitated and uneasy letting the seller remain in the property after closing. Even though th...

I've only been teargassed once in my life, and that was in 1969 at the March on Washington. Since then, I haven't really encountered strong arm tactics or even interacted with the police much. But I had forgotten how the police sometimes rely upon intimidation and threats, yelling and screaming a...

It was advertised as a pop-up park. Officials closed off Broadway on Sunday, from Riverside in Land Park down into Curtis Park, to allow neighbors and anybody else who wanted to show up to play in the street. There were hoola hoops, games, yoga, chalk drawing, skateboarding, rollerblading, bike r...
