Oh, man, I can remember the day I upgraded my computer experience in the last 1980s to a Compaq 286 with a 20 MB hard drive. Whoa! That thing was portable as long as I had a luggage roller to put it on because it was too heavy and bulky to carry. IIRC it was around 40 pounds.Back when if you had ...
Every home I visit for a listing appointment is unique and different, and many offer an opportunity to learn something new. Even after 4 decades in the business, I still learn. Constantly learning keeps my work interesting.When I walked into my client's home last week, I immediately smelled dog o...
No sooner did I put this fixer home in East Sacramento on the market than I had an offer. I told the agent I did not want to advise my seller to take it because I did not believe (for a valid reason) that her buyer would close escrow. Helps that of course I knew of her buyer, had spoken to him a ...

Gone are the days when you can call a local department store, reach a clerk who works there, and find out if an item is in stock. Instead, inventory is updated online, and while ...
If I say to my husband the words "Wes Anderson" and "stop-motion animation" in the same sentence, I can get him to go see just about any movie that falls into that category. Throw in the Japanese element, even if that is just the way white people see it, and his interest is further piqued.That's ...
When the Carbon Monoxide law passed 7 years ago in California, we were still in the midst of short sales. Since many of those sales involved abandoned and / or vacant homes, it was readily apparent to me that something so simple as a plug-in carbon monoxide detector, a device that costs less than...
This is the third time this month that a seller has told me they read a blog I wrote and decided to hire me. It makes me wonder how many other clients never say a thing.
