Throwback Thursdays- A Memorable Baptism PhotoToday I was feeling very sad for many families here in the United States and in Paris so I thought I would share one of my photos of happy times ago. This special photo is framed and sits in my hallway and reminds me of good times many years ago and of such an important event in our lives. It was taken at my daughter's baptism at the March Air Force Base Chapel in Riverside, CA. It was such a fun morning and we had a lovely reception afterwards. My mother and father and in-laws were so happy to be a part of this day and we had all of our good friends there as well. Photos are so important as they remind us of happy times when we are feeling sad. Be sure to call  your loved ones and tell them that you love and miss them♥

Riverside Historical Home $252,500- Just Closed EscrowI recently sold this great 1925 Craftsman style home in the "Downtown Historical District" of Riverside. One of the unique things about this home was that it was located in the 'first block' of the city when created in 1925. I was excited to be the listing agent of the sale of this great older home which had been well taken care of, remodeled and had a lot of major upgrades plus you could tell it was well loved. When we talk about curb appeal, we usually mean green grass, flowers, welcome mat and nice paint. Now this house didn't have flowers but had a nice lawn and a green hedge but what made it so special was the walkway up to the steps leading to the wide covered porch and the two prominent posts out front. I personally love this ...

On all our residential Real Estate listings, we let it be known from the MLS stage forward that dialog about the subject property is highly recommended BEFORE any offer is made. Why? Unknown to anyone but soon to be disclosed is exactly what my seller, owner or principal wants to see happen. Failing this main parameter causes everyone to waste precious timeWE ARE READYMy clients and I are quite clear on what we want to see happen and when. We are open to discussion but only within our scope of representation. Disclosures are standing by, pricing has been well researched and thought out and how we want to proceed and what we would like to see happen is ready to share. We believe we have what you, the true buyer, is looking for. We invite you to verify thisGET THE BALL ROLLINGIf someone i...

Insects have a right to be here just like we do. I am sure you will agree with me when I say that as long as they stay OUTSIDE, they are free to roam to their hearts content and enjoy their brief stay here. Again, stay out of my house, bedroom, kitchen, garage and bathroom or you will leave before your appointed time guaranteed....THE WORK BEGINSI am in the process of sealing the house and prepping it for winter to come. All the nooks and crannies are being sealed and eliminated where I can. That also includes cutting away trees and bushes from the house too. I found the ants were using them to get to the roof and into other safe places (attic)?THE ROOFI went on the roof and took some of that ready to use tar patch and just sealed the chimney, the vent pipes and any questionable seams, ...

There is no perfect escrow or circumstances that one can say with surety how things will come out. The next best thing is experience, knowledge, check-off, and confirmation but if you have been around a while, you discover what they refer to as PROBLEMS. Not to fear but to pause instead and enter into...SOLUTIONS It is interesting to note that in Real Estate, the career comes with an ongoing never ending educational continuing course on how to keep going by knowing and growing.

Squirrel Streaking Down the Road Today while outside fixing a sprinkler head, I saw something moving in the bushes. We get bunnies so I thought I had spotted a cotton tail rabbit.  Then all of a sudden, this squirrel pops it head out of the bushes. I ran for my camera and it started STREAKING down the street.  But then it stopped so nicely for me to get a few good photos. Thanks Mr. Squirrel. And then he ran off. Bye Bye....
