One of the super fun things about merging my business with another agent in Sacramento (we are forming a Super Team!) is the fact we can trade war stories along the way. We share many of the same puzzlements but at least we can laugh about it. Like how come buyer's agents tend to advise their buy...

In the olden days, like a dozen years ago, my demeanor was a lot more polite than it is now. When I answered my phone, I would engage in a conversation with whomever was on the other end of the phone. If I received a telemarketing call, I asked nicely to be removed. Explained I had no interest in...

Why is that everybody thinks they can stick their hands into our pockets? There seems to be this big push for so-called "referrals." It is not that we don't like referrals because who doesn't like referrals? Genuine referrals. From a bonafide source, like an agent who is working with the client i...

When we bought our house in Hawaii, the former sellers rented back from us for 18 months. So, I got to know them fairly well. They also moved temporarily across the street one December just so I could stay in our house. Super nice people from Canada. The only people I know who are missionaries, r...

Because I sold such a boatload of short sales since 2005, cummulatively more than any other agent I can find in a 7-county area according to Trendgraphix, I had been hoping the negative equity situations were now a thing of the past. However, I keep finding evidence that we are not completely out...

When I showed up for my first (and probably last) vinyasa class, I wasn't dressed appropriately. They also did not like my Target yoga mat because it had a bit of padding. Plus, everybody seemed to be covering up their mat with what looked like a Native American blanket. Or maybe the blankets are...

Borrego Springs might be 90 miles or so from San Diego but the winding roads make the trek at least a two-hour drive. Fortunately, it involves driving through beautiful country with fabulous scenery such as rolling majestic hills morphing into mountains littered with millions of large boulders on...

When I spotted this lake in the distance, I insisted we drive as close as we could get. Good thing we had rented a Buick Enclave, which pretty much goes anywhere. My husband seemed a bit uncomfortable driving into the washes but then he has never owned a jeep nor participated in four-wheeling lik...

The first day we arrived in Borrego Springs, we tried to visit the Anza Borrego State Park Visitor's Center to no avail. Because it was a Sunday. That place was packed without any spare parking places. Bumper-to-bumper cars and traffic in this small desert town. Tourists everywhere. Pulling off t...

This is an excellent example of tectonic plate thrusts in Anza Borrego State Park, and you will find this scene shortly after passing the trailhead for the Palm Canyon Hike. It's a 3-mile hike roundtrip. But much of it is not on a flat sandy path. The path is narrow in some places. In others, it ...
