Oh, my aching back. It is time for home improvement consequences. Usually, I don't suddenly engage in an uptick of physical activity. But hauling boards, lifting heavy boxes, loading up my SUV, unloading, bending over, all those things can wreak havoc on your body when one is not used to that lev...

Although we bought our Hawaii house over 3 years ago, we have never participated in the Sunday Stroll at Kona's Historic Kailua Village. So, while hanging out at Kona Haven Coffee yesterday morning with the gang, this topic came up. Once a month, Ali'i Drive, where all the tourists go, is closed ...

The first thought that entered my head when the general contractor from Lowes said our drywall was compromised (due to a long-time slow leak from our sink's shutoff valves) was where in the garage did I put a utility knife and level.

When I was last at our house in Hawaii toward the end of June, we had a few bad air quality days in Kona. Mostly unhealthy for sensitive people, but also a red day -- which is unhealthy for everybody. However, Kilauea seems to have stopped erupting, and the collapsing events at the summit have ce...

The good news for me is nobody knows if I am physically in Sacramento or whether I am in Hawaii. When peopl...

Until I took a peek in MLS at the number of short sales available in Sacramento County, I did not realize how few there actually are. I mean, for a while there, I sold more short sales than any other agent in a 7-county area. In fact, I might still hold the record, don't know. But right now, we h...

Neighbors can be truly vindictive people. They might not talk to you for years, but boy, the moment your house goes on the market, they often become very vocal. All the things they've been harboring about you will come out. This is more than disclosing disasters to the buyer that happened at your...

It seems like unless I am headed for Hawaii, I rarely find time for brief vacations anymore, even for a weekend. But last weekend, my brother-in-law from Chicago flew into the Bay Area. Well, actually, his company contacts were in Sunnyvale. There didn't seem to be as much to do in Sunnyvale than...
