Having the right tools in any profession is critical for success... Having been a Realtor for 27+ years, I managed to keep up with the newest and best tools of the trade. I started out with an office phone and a secretary taking messages. Then graduate to beepers, suitcase phone etc. Now having a smart phone that has everything would be difficult to imagine living and working without.Now with that said I have been wanting to improve my kitchen skills and have been telling Diane I need a better way to slice and dice my vegetables. Look what she surprised me with yesterday:)))Now how long do you think it will take before I try it out and use it???  Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments. If you are looking for a knowledgeable, focused and goal-oriented Rea...

Some Days are easier than others, there are positive  explanations we might just not know why...Today was a relaxing and easy day for me when it comes to Real Estate. The stars were in line  to give me an easy day. So, what did I do? Very little if you asked me… The noise and the chatter around me were muted by my classical radio station that I have been listening to 24/7 for decades.Yesterday I went shopping for great food. Diane asked what do I want to do for dinner? She was prepared to take me out, meaning that she would cook.I heard horror stories about upscale restaurants being understaffed and over worked. Translation mediocre to lousy service, average food, and expensive prices. Hence, I opted not to do that, instead I wanted to stay home and make our own meal.Keep in mind, mothe...

Carlsbad Village Street Faire ~ November 7, 2021 After being canceled in 2020 due to COVID, one of the area’s favorite arts and crafts fairs returns to Carlsbad Village on Sunday November 7th. The fair is sponsored by the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce. The Carlsbad Village Street Faire is supposedly the largest outdoor 1-day fair in the US. Held annually in the spring and fall, the fair will run from 8 am until 4 pm. The Carlsbad Village Street Faire is held in the heart of the Village, along Grand Avenue from Carlsbad Boulevard to Jefferson. Because of the size the fair also spills over onto side streets including State Street. You’ll see signs warning everyone about this upcoming special event, since much of the parking on these streets will not be available due to the fair. (photo fro...

Our last Capitol Beer Fest was held the week before California was locked down due to the pandemic and we had to postpone it this spring, but we are back.  It is the number one fundraiser for Runnin for Rhett, the local charity that I support.  We are dedicated to getting our community to Move Into Life.  Twice a year we send coaches to local schools to train kids to run, what for many, is their first 5k.  It is all free; the training, the race, a t-shirt and their medal.  We also fund raise to give one thousand kids that need them, a pair of running shoes.Capitol Beer Fest will be a fun event with over 100 different brewers offering selections of their different beers and hard ciders.  Make sure to visit our local Elk Grove brewer, Dreaming Dog.  They have been a big supporter of our l...

http://MikesDailyMarketReport.com:  The Initial Jobless Claims came in at 293k last week, as this is the first time since Pandemic that we saw this data in the 200k+ range.  This is helping the Markets.  Lastly, the Producer Price Index (PPI) rose 0.5% in September, while it's Core PPI (excluding food and energy) rose only 0.2% (which brings it's YoY from 6.7% in August to 6.8% in September).  The PPI measures inflation for the Wholesale sector and doesn't always carry too much weight, like CPI or PCE.  Stocks are Up today on the Initial Jobless Claims data and good earnings reports from Banks, as we begin the release of Q3 Earnings Reports.  Meanwhile, MBS is Up 11bps (coupled with yesterday's close of 23bps) has Lenders out with better Mortgage Rates today (compared to yesterday morni...
