I was out of town at the WCR State meeting in California when  I     received the text from my husband.  One of the smoke alarm batteries had apparently gotten to that critically low level where it starts to chirp an alert.  It was 3am (when it started chirping, thank goodness the text came at a ...
Yes, I had a great time at WCR Leadership Academy last year, and yes, I make good use of the tote bag I received there.  And, yes, when I came home from a day of "real estating" and inadvertantly left the tote bag on the floor, Cowboy found it made an excellent pillow -- afterall, what cat wouldn...
Yes, I'm just as devilishly handsome when I slip under this rug.  There is no rug to little or too big for me to show off my ability to wriggle underneath.
I've always had a special spot in my heart for pansies.  They have such a soft pleasant scent.  My Dad said his Mom always thought the flowers resembled people's faces.  He said she always had them in her garden.  He always had them in his garden, too, so it seem right I should have them in mine....
I handled my first short sale  early in 2008 when tackling them was  first starting to be a needed skill for Realtors.  My listing hadn't started as a short sale, but as the market dropped rapidly in San Diego County, it became evident quickly that the sellers would have to sell the home for less...

Recently, I had a chance to team up with a fellow blogger to interview him about blogging.  Jeff Dowler, who has been blogging for about two and a half years, will be teaching a webinar at our local Association.  I was asked to be the interviewer for the 5 minute podcast.  We had a great time doi...
It was one of those rare Saturday mornings when I was taking time off to cook a meal for a family gathering (you know the kind, when the in-laws are coming) when I had an urgent call from my client --  "Lela, someone showed up at my house  at  7:30 this morning saying that they had sent in their ...
Recently, I have had buyers approach me asking if I could help them find a property that they could "lease-to-own."  When I asked them why they wanted to go that route instead of either leasing or buying, they responded, that being unfamiliar with the area, they wanted to rent for awhile until th...
