Want to Go Shopping at the Medical Supply Store?
Me Neither.
 
The things that come up in real estate can be really interesting and seemingly not related to real estate.
 
I was holding open house at one of my listings.  The client, who is in her early 70's hadn't left the house yet.  We started chatting and she mentioned that her doctor had advised her she needs to march in place for seven minutes a day to improve her strength and endurance.
 
I asked her her how the marching was coming along. ¬†Did she feel better? ¬†Stronger? ¬†She said she'd never done it. ¬†What? ¬†Why? … (15 comments)

Some people may see it as a small thing, but I see it as huge. ¬†The property I sold for this nice client who, along with his wonderful wife I came to consider as … (21 comments)

The Text Message that Made My Day
 
I have lovely clients whose home in the Timberline community of Mission Viejo I sold two years ago.  I'd met the wife at an open house seven years before they listed their home with me.  
 
Here's the text message I received from the wife today:
 
"Two years ago this Memorial weekend, you did the unthinkable and sold our house.  So grateful and happy!!  I use your vases a lot and send you a hug every time.  Have a great day."
 
These clients ended up as friends, of course.  How could they not?!

mission viejo real estate agent: Where to eat in Mission Viejo? Where else but the neighborhood diner? - 05/09/15 01:57 PM
Where to eat in Mission Viejo?
Where else but the neighborhood diner?
 
Hungry for hearty, home style breakfast?  Looking for some local flavor?  Check out Paul's Pantry in Mission Viejo.  
 
Paul's Pantry is a popular, comfortable neighborhood diner with great home style food, great service and familiar faces.  This gem of a place has been family owned and run since 1990.

Answer: No one.
 
The cinnamon roll is a ridiculously yummy … (7 comments)

Personalities in Real Estate: The Angry, Frustrated Agent
 
An agent called me saying he was at the listing he'd texted me about earlier that day.  He demanded to know where the lock box was.  He said I'd told him it was on the front door and it wasn't there.
 
The agent said the lock box wasn't behind the screen door.  I said "Um, my listing doesn't have a screen door."  The agent said "I'm standing right here!  Where is the lock box?!  
 
The agent was obviously at the wrong place. 
 
I asked if he saw my sign in front of the property. "No!" He … (10 comments)

mission viejo real estate agent: A lease, a lie, a meltdown and then.... the truth comes out - 03/25/15 03:00 AM
Since I just leased a property and have two more lease listings, I was reminded of a funny lease situation from some years back.
I listed and sold a property for a nice family and was then on the hunt to locate a property for them to lease.  We found the perfect property, but dogs were not allowed.  
The Mrs. said that the dog would go to live with the parents in the next county over.  Are you sure?
The Mrs. asked if I could show the property again because she wanted to bring her sister and daughter. ¬†The daughter, … (15 comments)
