When I first talked with the seller of the home on Laguna Woods Drive, she had in mind a very low price, way underpriced. By more than $50,000. Usually it's the other way around, you know, sellers in Elk Grove often think their home is worth a lot more than it will fetch on the open market. But s...

My brokerage, in an attempt to appear more human and caring, I imagine, started setting up the Lyon Cares program, which donates funds to charities, right after a company-wide fiasco happened that threatened our very framework. I'm not saying it's not a good program, or that even under the auspic...

Agents are programmed from birth it seems to ask people they meet if those individuals are working with an agent. Nobody wants to tread on toes. However, as anybody who knows me knows, that is not a question I ask. The reason I don't ask that question is because it sets up the agent asking it. Wh...

Of all the places to get engaged, I had not considered a spot where falling to your death could be eminent. I mean, what is it with men and heights? I recall when my husband and I decided to get married, and he seemed a bit disappointed that it happened so organically and not at the top of the Ei...

Not talking about hamburgers and hot dogs when I say grilling. I mean the rapid-fast firing of questions from curious buyer's agents when they try to extract information from listing agents. There you are, for example, at Arden Mall in Sacramento, dodging screaming babies in strollers as you try ...

An agent in a bit of confusion yesterday left a voice mail to ask how a seller can refuse to accept their counter offer after the buyer signed it and sent it back. Like with anything in Sacramento real estate, the devil is in the details. It all depends on how the acceptance came together. When t...

No matter what day of the week, I seem to always be busy with work. For that reason, it's not unusual for me not to pay a lot of attention to the day, much less the month or year. I still can't get over the fact the 20th century is gone -- since those years comprised such a huge part of my life ....

One of the reasons to buy a home in Sacramento is so you can plant a garden in that newly acquired yard. It's not the same as renting a house, as I can recall a rental in 1981 in Newport Beach where I had a garden. My lease was up right before the artichokes were ready to pick, and I had to move....

When it comes to upholstery, I can honestly say I have never before in my life hired a professional upholsterer. That's probably because I'm with the bulk of people who would throw out a worn sofa, for example, before re-upholstering it. Or, maybe I've just never really owned any nice furniture i...

The interesting thing about the 2018 Taste of Land Park is we have lived in Land Park now for 16 years, and we just attended the 17th Annual Taste of Land Park. Yup, never participated in the past. How lame is that? Well, in all fairness, I've been busy every singleĀ  Sunday for the past 16 years....
