When it comes to upholstery, I can honestly say I have never before in my life hired a professional upholsterer. That's probably because I'm with the bulk of people who would throw out a worn sofa, for example, before re-upholstering it. Or, maybe I've just never really owned any nice furniture i...

The interesting thing about the 2018 Taste of Land Park is we have lived in Land Park now for 16 years, and we just attended the 17th Annual Taste of Land Park. Yup, never participated in the past. How lame is that? Well, in all fairness, I've been busy every single  Sunday for the past 16 years....

Active Rainer and Los Angeles Realtor Jane Peters was instrumental in pushing me to get a SSL certificate for my website. It's been mentioned a lot in this forum but at first blush I didn't think I needed it. After all, I'm not taking credit card information or selling anything on my website othe...

Let's see a show of hands. How many real estate agents listed short sales prior to 2012? And how many of those short sale listings sold and closed within 6 months? OK, now you can peel yourselves up off the floor and stop laughing. Hey, I wasn't the one who sold buyers hope. Nope, that was the Ca...

Quitting a second job should not be so hard. But it's old habits. Hard to let go of. Not to mention, there is a certain amount of enjoyment and reward from my second job. Oh, you didn't know I had a second job? Well, not everybody realizes a top producer in Sacramento real estate is also driven e...

As I write this, I realize I had intended to drive to Rancho Cordova to retrieve my lockbox from the gas meter last Saturday, but that's before I decided to finish the terms of my contract before it expires in two weeks at Dot Dash (formerly About.com). I've been writing on the side for that comp...

I hope all you mothers out there had an especially joyful Mother's Day.  I spent yesterday morning with my son and his wife, along with one of my daughters and a granddaughter. We attended the fun packed Strawberry Festival in nearby Roseville.  I hadn't realized the event would have a pirate the...

I want to take this opportunity to wish all mothers out there a wonderful and very special Mother’s Day.  I also want to provide tidbits of wisdom about moms, from the perception of the younger set: 1) Moms are fantastic, even when they're spelt upside down they're still WOW! 2) Mothers are basic...

Most agents just sell real estate and don't always pay a lot of attention to the specifics of legal documents. Paperwork is often the last thing an agent wants to deal with. That's why so many busy agents have full-time assistants to assist. But it's helpful to maintain a basic understanding of w...

It can be a bit odd to meet a buyer after closing when you're the listing agent. Especially after having to serve the buyer with the seller's Notice to Buyer to Perform during escrow. An agent never knows for certain whether the buyer might accidentally turn on the garden hose and point it in the...

Why do we continue to do this? We post flyers and real estate ads with a great deal of information, but we often purposefully exclude price. Years ago we did it because we hoped our flyers and yard signs would make our phone ring. However, with the advent of Zillow, Trulia and other on-line websi...

Just driving around town in Sacramento, you can't help but notice cranes and huge apartment buildings going up. Who wants their town to look like Miami, LOL? But it's happening in Sacramento. With average building costs running $150 to $200 a square foot, according to some websites, it doesn't se...

Remember the good old days, like 15 years ago, when you could buy solar panels in Sacramento for about $6,000 to cover a 2,000 square foot house and generate enough electricity to sell some back to the electric company for a profit? Ha! Nowadays, that objective seems like a dream.True, I don't kn...

There are many buyers in Sacramento who, having zero experience in real estate, think they know exactly what will happen in our market place. They don't own a home. Not even sure if they want to. But they surely possess a lot of opinions and ideas. The one you hear batted about the most is about ...

We recently closed on the purchase of our next flip project! Below are current pictures of the home. This home is located in the Citrus Heights, California and is close to downtown Sacramento and Roseville. It is in need of quite a bit of work. It has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathroom, is 1,277 sq ft, and h...

It seems like everybody wants to guard their own little niche. I've had agents call from southern California (usually San Diego) and ask if I would take a listing for them and then give them 50% (in some cases, 75%) of my commission. They say they want to use my company, my name and my photograph...

Yes, it can be difficult to imagine that a buyer spends so much time accumulating paperwork to satisfy lender demands that there's not a lot of time leftover to ponder new living arrangements. When I think back to the time I last moved, which was 16 years ago, holy moly, I was very much focused o...

The first Sunday in May usually features more homes open for us than what we have this May. I'm thinking it must be due to all of the activity in April. Listings during April tend to sell fairly quickly, if the homes are desirable, priced right and appeal to mass individuals. More custom homes th...

In late April while traveling the exquisite 17 Mile Drive, which connects Carmel, Pebble Beach and Pacific Grove along California's coast, my grandson and I, came across a small population of squirrels near water's edge. But, one little critter in particular, seemed to stand out above all others!...
