December 2018 California's Governor Gavin Newsom and family purchased their new home in Fair Oaks, on 8 acres on the bluffs overlooking Sacramento Bar. While I am not in his inner circle, I have been pulled into his outer orbit by the fact he is now my neighbor 3 doors away!  I thought I would share some of the history of his property which I have dug up, along with my own personal remembrances over the years. I can only assume the Newsoms were attracted to the rolling oak-studded seclusion of the gated 8 acres, promising a private enclave for their 4 young children to have a sense of normalcy, far from the fishbowl of downtown Sacto politics.  It would be hard to find any other home in the area, with so much privacy. This begs the first question - how did there happen to be such a larg...

When my seller told me about the baby owls in the trees, I asked for a photograph. These are baby Western Screech Owls that live in Fair Oaks. The sellers also enjoy watching wandering deer who come to sit in the yard, right outside their kitchen window. And when I was there for my first visit, a family of baby turkeys danced on the front steps.My new 5 bedroom, 4 bath listing in Fair Oaks is nestled at the end of a culdesac, situated on 1.37 acres. So many trees, too. It's like living in the woods, with views from every window. Many floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Natural elements. Vaulted wood ceilings. Updated kitchen with ceramic counters, copper ranch hood that wraps around the corner, and a full pantry. You will encounter many angles in this home. Plus, it is suitable for multigen...

Frequently you hear the saying “If these walls could talk”. I heard the saying last week as the owner of the Levering House at 7881 Orange Ave talked about his home during his 31 years of ownership. A man with a huge heart, Doug Porter has tried to help those in need by renting out rooms in his 2 story home to those struggling to make ends meet.  The cast of characters who have come and gone could populate a movie, he says. Over the years, Doug has tried to maintain the historic feel to the home through many remodeling projects, although a fire in the living room a few years back forced some modernization he had not counted on. The firefighters smashed through the coved plaster ceiling to chase the burning embers, and windows and flooring needed to be replaced.  He has also added bathro...

Fair Oaks, California, Old Homes Review, by Sally Dunbar, Old Homes Editor7848 Orange Avenue, the Rice-Chasko Home Fair Oaks has it's share of lovely historic homes. Fair Oaks grew as a community at the turn of the century along the American River, 17 miles upstream of Sacramento. As one of the early homes, the Rice Chasko home was built in 1902 by Henry and Phoebe Rice of Minnesota.  Between this 5 acre parcel and another east of the Cemetery, the Rices farmed over 100 trees - pears, peach, fig, citrus, 20 almond, 40 olive, and grape vines.  After Henry’s and Phoebe’s deaths in 1913 and 1919, the property was sold to Walter Obenshain. At least two other families owned the farm after Obenshain - Clifford Stice and Joe King. The latest update comes from the longest owner, the Chasko fami...

#JustSold !!! 11/10/16 in #FairOaks .  This was one of those sales that is the reason i love my job.  A few years ago i helped an amazing young couple, jose and lillie, buy their first home.  A few months ago they referred me to this equally amazing couple.  I met with them, they were solid buyers are very realistic.  They were preapproved and knew exactly their budget.  We had a great time looking at properties and found them a beautiful home.  They trusted my guidance through the process and had a successful closing.  Congrats to my clients on their first home and to starting the next chapter of their young lives! #FirstTimeHomeBuyers #LoveMyPastClients #BlessedWithThisReferral #SacramentoRealEstate For More information: www.RealEstateWithDoug.com  CONNECT WITH ME VIA FACEBOOK, YOUTUB...

When the seller finally stumbled upon this Fair Oaks Realtor to sell his home in Fair Oaks, he had already been talking to a flipper who offered him a ridiculous amount of money for his home. Some investors think sellers are so desperate or incredibly stupid not to understand how much equity they have in their homes in Fair Oaks.I suggested he stop talking to these kinds of people because he'll only get ripped off. And I dashed over there to list the home in Fair Oaks. He's got the largest independently owned real estate company in Sacramento and one of its top 3 agents to sell this home for him. At least he is in much better hands now.You can read more about this and see the photos at this link: A Little Sweat Equity to Finish a Home in Fair Oaks.

The history of Fair Oaks is full of intertwining families, and so it is with this month’s Old Home feature - the Alvin L. Heim Home at 4940 Minnesota Ave. Alvin came to Fair Oaks from Indiana in 1909, buying 10 acres on Minnesota, tucked against what is now the North Ridge Golf Course. He married Vena Bishop in 1915, and had three children - Adolph, Alvin W., and daughter Thalia (born 1922).  By 1929, it appears Alvin Heim had built the two story home which still stands on Minnesota, although it has been substantially added to. Alvin developed quite an orchard of mixed pecan and almond trees, using the latest progressive methods.  He was also quite civic minded, becoming the Assessor of the Fair Oaks Irrigation District, a Socialist Candidate for State Legislature, a candidate for State...
