I find it is far more enjoyable to sell certain homes when the listing agent absolutely loves the home. Such is the case with this pool home in the wonderful Carmichael neighborhood of Shelfield Estates. This home features a highly desirable layout, with two fireplaces (family and living rooms), ...

I've heard of emergency helicopter rides from Kona to Honolulu that supposedly cost $8,000. Although to fly one-way in coach on Hawaiian Airlines, today's fare is only $79. Which means if you can schedule your emergency doctor visits, you'll save a ton of money. On top of this, the distance betwe...

Let me be clear that I am not badmouthing all agents. It is always just a few that ruin it for the rest of us. One thing I have noticed over my 40+ years in real estate is there seems to be a) no shortage of scumball agents and b) that puts us always on high alert that a client could confuse the ...

Yes, my prediction for today is December real estate sales in Sacramento could be much stronger than you might expect.  There is a lot of doom and gloom talk going around, and I see the numbers, too. Sure, interest rates are climbing, sales prices have appreciated, and now we are moving into a mo...

By the time you read this, I shall be 30,000 feet in the air without WiFi. Yup, on this day of November, I am moving my real estate business from my summer home in Sacramento to my winter home in Hawaii. It doesn't mean I sell real estate in Hawaii. It means I still sell real estate in Sacramento...

Last week I accidentally overheard a conversation between a potential buyer an a buyer's agent. The buyer was extremely rude, although I'm not sure she meant to be. Her conversation led her to this conclusion: "Let me remind you there are a lot of preforeclosure experts on Zillow; I can call any ...

As I mentioned in my personal blog today, marketing fixer homes is an utter joy to me. Not every Sacramento Realtor enjoys listing and selling homes that need work. It offends their eyeballs and sensitivities, I suppose. They also seem to struggle with how to price the home. None of those issues ...

Sure, Imelda Marcos was a criminal who stole a lot of money, but she will always be remembered for her shoes. When she was forced to flee the Phillipines, it was reported she left behind more than 3,000 pairs of shoes. Some reports indicated 7,500 pairs of shoes, to which she famously clarified, ...

As with most things in life, no matter how refined the details, sometimes you've gotta kiss a bunch of frogs to find a prince. Just the matter of odds. And pricing. One guy offered to be our Hawaii gardener for $40 a month, and he came only once a month, too. For 15 minutes. By picking up a ton m...

It is probably the optimist in me who wants to believe that we humans on planet Earth are more alike than we are different. Forget the red states or blue and set aside socio-economic demographics, the color of skin or religious beliefs, and let's just help each other. That's the one thing -- the ...
