mission viejo realtor: Why Wire Funds from the Sale Escrow to the Purchase Escrow? - 08/13/15 06:12 AM
 Can Funds be Wired Between Escrow Companies? 
 Why is it a Good Idea?
Did you know that some banks require that wired funds stay in the account for 24 hours before they can be wired back out?  How can this affect your timeline when coordinating the sale of  one home and the purchase of another?  Real estate works off of calendar days, so the impact on timing can be significant.
Suppose the seller's proceeds are wired into their account and arrive on a Friday.  They may have to wait until Monday to wire funds and depending on the time of  day the wire is … (11 comments)

mission viejo realtor: Shameless Self-Promotion Leads to a Really Nice Endorsement - 07/21/15 04:27 PM
  Shameless Self-Promotion 
Leads to a Really Nice Endorsement 
I posted a link to my recent ActiveRain blog post on Facebook about having received multiple offers over list price on a new listing.  
One of of my nice clients whose home I sold two years ago commented on my having sold the home so quickly.  He wrote: 
"Nothing new for Jill.  Tell her you want to sell and you'd better start packing."
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)

mission viejo realtor: The Text Message that Made My Day - 05/25/15 11:09 AM
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?!  
Whenever I'm in the state where they … (31 comments)

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.

mission viejo realtor: Personalities in Real Estate: The Angry, Frustrated Agent - 05/01/15 01:52 PM
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 realtor: 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)
