If you are an impatient person, you probably will not like the pace of life in Hawaii. On the mainland, if you wait in a line to ring up a purchase and the person in front of you has finished their transaction, yet stands there talking to the clerk, you might get irritated. Sigh. Shuffle the good...
Even though we have an increase of inventory in Sacramento, demand seems to match. However, some homes in our incredibly hot seller's market are not selling. Why is that, do you think? I know everybody likes to say price, but it is not always price. Part of it is the expectations Millennials have...
When our refrigerator in Sacramento showed signs of losing its digital mind, it wasn't an easy thing to buy another refrigerator. Aside from a ton of options to weigh, width and height considerations, it would be nice, I figured, if the refrigerator lasted more than 9 years. They make them to wea...
No, I don't really say Clamato. I detest the drink. And I have so much of it now, quite by accident. I did not plan to buy Clamato juice, but it was cleverly disguised as tomato juice with the clam part sorta falling several steps behind the original words. Ick, ick, ick, I do not like the stuff....
One of the reasons I love working with out-of-area agents is because I know how to make the process easy for them, and they aren't much trouble.

What I find irritating, though, is when people make an appointment and then don't show up or call. H...
Tell me, who does not adore smart home technology? Clap your hands and the lights come on. OK, maybe not in this home, I haven't tried it, but it does offer a combination code for an entrance and the lights run on smart technology. You can turn the lights on and off, plus open and close the garag...
People often do not speak up when a real estate agent speaks using acronyms or real estate slang; even if they do not understand the message the agent hoped to convey. Some just figure they should understand but they do not, which can make them feel inadequate. Like they're not let in on the secr...
The top criteria every first-time home buyer in Sacramento wants is a good location. Because location is everything in real estate. Part of what defines an area as a good location is whether that neighborhood is crime-free and safe. Unfortunately, no neighborhood is really crime-free. Not when yo...
Over the years, I've had no qualms about grabbing a sledgehammer and demolishing kitchens, wherever I've lived. There was a period in my life as well when I spent about 10 years buying homes, fixing them up and selling them. What we call flipping today. Because I knew the sorts of improvements bu...
