This was one of those days to attack the paperwork. The stacks had stacks. It's been so busy, I've just been piling everything up, but now tax forms are coming in and that tells me I can't put it off any longer. At least get the PILES into organized piles. Anyway: I'm one of those who likes to do...
I hate to say it, but if you are looking for homes in the $20,000 to $80,000 range here in Del Norte County, California you may be out of luck. HOW CAN THIS HAVE HAPPENED SO FAST? Early in 2012, they were still plentiful, but since then homes have gone under contract in big numbers. Investors rea...
If you have been following my blogs, I've been out of town for two weeks in my other "niche", Carmel-by-the-Sea. In the meantime, several transactions have been percolating here in Crescent City, Del Norte County, California. Now it's time to follow-up with some referrals here in Crescent City th...
A recent blog stated "how many viewers are the right number of viewers when showing property" in order to advise the buyer to buy or not to buy. One of them was a home inspector. WOULD YOU TAKE A HOME INSPECTOR ALONG FOR THE SHOWING? Interestingly, several thought they should not bring a home ins...
The hotels in Carmel-by-the-Sea are already in high gear for the influx of visitors that will be filling up not only this little village but the entire Monterey Peninsula. You are lucky to find a hotel room, in fact, if you plan to be here but don't have a reservation, start dialing!!! One websit...

The beauty of the area which includes Big Sur and Pebble Beach is absolute. Is it any wonder that the homes in Carmel-by-the-Sea generally are very pricy but that does no...
On those rare days when there is no sunset down on Carmel Beach, an alternative is to take a stroll at dusk through Carmel-by-the-Sea's Village.  Everything pretty much is shut down by 6 PM, but window shopping is a delight. Everything sparkles and entices. A couple of comments that come to mind ...
It's time for me to write something about real estate in Carmel-by-the-Sea. How about the fact that finding a particular property can be a challenge? THERE ARE NO HOUSE NUMBERS IN CARMEL-BY-THE-SEA. For example, I used to live at 2 NE of San Antonio on 11th Avenue. Translation: go to the intersec...
Carmel-by-the-Sea is known as a "site location" for weddings. Not only are there some amazing resorts and chapels to hold the wedding ceremony, but Carmel Beach is the number one location for wedding photographs. The sunset hour is so spectacular, that some brides and grooms actually take their e...
I was just reading a biography of Patricia Qualls, an artist and studio gallery owner in Carmel Valley Village whom I met this afternoon. Like many of us, she did not find her true calling until after working at other jobs such as sales in Merrill Lynch and a commodities broker at Thomson McKinno...
