Wednesday Food for Thought: “The separation of talent and skill is one of the greatest misunderstood concepts for people who are trying to excel, who have dreams, who want to do things. Talent you have naturally. Skill is only developed by hours and hours and hours of beating on your craft." - Will Smith  Interest rates increased last week when the Feds spoke on Wednesday. This was the expected outcome of their meeting. The 2nd major increase since the election results. We also anticipate two more increases in 2017.  What does this mean for you?   1. If you were pre-approved for a home loan before November 7th, you want to reach out to your lender to update your pre-approval. Call me if you haven’t heard from your lender!  2. Credit cards and 2nd mortgage rates are likely to increase th...

Welcome to the final post of my renovation blog series. Today we’ll talk about the breathtaking backyard of this 1949 San Mateo ranch house. As with all posts in this series, I’ll walk you through the area while explaining the changes we made, and why. The hidden jewel of this property is the backyard, and we knew it was one of the primary features that would sell the house. The original owners of the home had very close ties to the floral and gardening industry. In fact, their family has been in this business for three generations! It’s clear from the backyard’s layout that they appreciate of balance and beauty of flowering plants. The Challenge The love of nature is apparent in the focal point of the backyard: the rock waterfall and pond. It is also apparent in old family photos that ...

Today on the renovation blog series, we’ll talk about the deck just outside the dining room of this 1949 San Mateo ranch house. As with all posts in this series, I’ll walk you through the area while explaining the changes we made, and why. The lathe-covered deck, located directly outside the dining room, is a huge bonus for this property. It suggests its use as an additional ‘outdoor room’, or an extension of the home. The Challenge The deck itself is redwood, and it was in good condition to begin with. Unfortunately, the lathe-covering was not. There was extensive dry rot damage, so it would have to be replaced, as it was at the end of its useful life. Additionally, the perimeter plants were sparse and anemic. We’d need to make them look lush again. Our Solution The effect of an outdoo...
