Ah, the best laid plans. Don't you know it? It also goes to show that if you tell yourself something for long enough, eventually you'll begin to believe it. I told everybody my last day was January 31. Super Blue Blood Moon day. Never looked at my calendar. I also wondered if it's possible that I...

It is my nature to dislike congolmerates, monopolies and corporate giants. The main problem is they are free to do whatever they want when there is little to no competition. So whatever they choose to do is probably not in the interest of the customer because they no longer need to put much empha...

Sacramento home inspections are 1) only as good as the inspector preparing it, and 2) typically thorough. How those inspections end up being interpreted by the parties involved is what can cause a bone of contention in any transaction. This is why agents need to be proactive, thinking ahead about...

There are some agents in Sacramento who flat out do not work with clients they deem to be too much work. By that I mean buyers and sellers who hold unreasonable views.

My protocol is to ask what the buyers thought about the home they just viewed. But what I get sometimes instead is what the buyer's agent thinks about it. ...

An extremely large portion of my Sacramento real estate business arrives via the internet. It's been this way for about 12 years. One day, the business just shifted, so I shifted with it. In fact, I can rememer having a chat button on my website so visitors could instant chat with me. This is whe...

People have all sorts of crazy ideas about what a Sacramento real estate agent should do for them. I'm not sure where they get those odd assumptions. For example, a buyer told me yesterday that she felt her Realtor should identify mold. She was shocked to learn agent's are not allowed to identify...

Because I've moved so much in my life, never staying in the same place for much longer than a few years, I have not been an agent who grew up selling the same houses in the same town. Besides, it would not be good if the same house turned over every year. You might start to wonder if the place is...

Island fever is a phrase people use to describe how bored they are, but I honestly cannot see how a person could be bored on Big Island. In my opinion, it's the best of all the Hawaiian islands. It offers such a wide variety of climates, geography, plants, animals and the people are so friendly. ...
