I get so many weird phone calls throughout the day that almost match up to some of the weird transactions I've been working on. A guy tells me he wants to list a home. I spend several hours inspecting, discussing, attaching lockbox, scheduling photographer, giving him tips. Then he says his neigh...

The last time I helped out an out-of-area appraiser by installing a contractor's box for her, she lost the key in the front yard and the appraisal came in low. It's not the first time an appraiser lost the house key in the yard. Usually buyer's agents will put the key into their pockets and wande...

And today, politics tends to dominate the news.For the most part, we don't deal with a lot of politics in real estate. NAR recent...

Proof exists I am not the only Realtor available on Thanksgiving. You would think that most agents take the day off, if not everybody. Yet I had a showing for a home in North Highlands. Who does that? I mean, do buyers say, hey, it's my only day off, Man? On the other hand, I received a lowball o...

One of the things that I find completely endearing about selling Sacramento real estate is I can still be astonished, even given the obscene number of homes I've sold over my lifetime. You never hear it all. There is always some new twist or complication or challenge.Today's challenge is how to h...

Not only do I greatly admire this woman and want to be her, no, wait, now I hear the Samantha Bee intro song in my head, LOL. But seriously, I am over-the-top ecstatic that The Flooring Girl, Debbie Gartner, wrote a blog for my Sacramento readers about luxury hardwood choices.This is the first ti...

Just like I am still receiving phone calls for a home that closed last Friday, I will still be fielding calls about this Campus Commons condo that closed yesterday for weeks to come. Buyers are so amazed that the home still shows for sale on websites like Trulia and Zillow, and they cannot unders...
