When I'm in this backyard, its hard to look anywhere but at the gorgeous, serene statue at the far side of the pool. It's quiet presence compels you to look, no matter where you are, or what you are doing.   For me, it's just like a life vision. Or your life focal point. No matter where you are,...

So last weekend I called the tenant to see if ...

I remember the day I become a positive person.  I was about 7, and snuggled up on the back dashboard of my parents yellow and white Studebaker.  Looking for animals shapes in the clouds as we rumbled through the hills of Mt. Shasta , returning from our yearly trek to Seattle. My jokester Dad was ...

With a long face primed for sympathy, I get asked "How are you doing in this market?" quite frequently.  Well-meaning friends and others who know I'm a realtor, assume I am suicidal about THIS MARKET... broke, in debt, and have no one to sell to, sitting all alone in an empty office day by day tw...

Last night I delivered the keys to Gina and Scott for their new home in Briggs Ranch, Folsom.  They were moving from the Bay Area, away from their families, with 3 under-5 daughters in tow.  It was their first home. Pulling into the cul-de-sac, I spot a man pounding a sign into the corner yard.  ...
