Because I've changed companies, I've been busy bopping around the internet changing my profiles on various websites to accurately reflect my new brokerage and affiliation. Which means I go to places that can suck you in. Like Facebook and Twitter. I don't ordinarily frequent those websites becaus...

Whenever some redneck yells about a person who cannot speak English well because it is not their native language, I want to ask how many languages do you speak, buddy? The best I can do is muster a few phrases in Spanish, French and Italian, but if it weren't for Pig Latin, I really cannot speak ...

One of the super fun things about merging my business with another agent in Sacramento (we are forming a Super Team!) is the fact we can trade war stories along the way. We share many of the same puzzlements but at least we can laugh about it. Like how come buyer's agents tend to advise their buy...

In the olden days, like a dozen years ago, my demeanor was a lot more polite than it is now. When I answered my phone, I would engage in a conversation with whomever was on the other end of the phone. If I received a telemarketing call, I asked nicely to be removed. Explained I had no interest in...

Because I sold such a boatload of short sales since 2005, cummulatively more than any other agent I can find in a 7-county area according to Trendgraphix, I had been hoping the negative equity situations were now a thing of the past. However, I keep finding evidence that we are not completely out...

When I showed up for my first (and probably last) vinyasa class, I wasn't dressed appropriately. They also did not like my Target yoga mat because it had a bit of padding. Plus, everybody seemed to be covering up their mat with what looked like a Native American blanket. Or maybe the blankets are...

One of my buyer's agents reported that a few open house guests said they did not like three levels. My response to him was take a look at Mill at Broadway. Mostly all 3 flights of stairs (and selling) despite being under two freeways, with HOA dues and slammed together in tight quarters. In addit...

Even though we are all fully aware that Craigslist is full of slimy characters, it is still a good way to sell stuff as long as you use common sense. However, even I was tricked, although hopefully I caught it in time. I ended up changing passwords, user names, phone numbers and email addresses.T...

Working with agents who try to represent family members can be somewhat of a pain-in-the-you-know-what for a Sacramento listing agent. Why just a few days ago, I had a family member call and ask to see a listing. He acknowledged that he had an agent, but was too embarassed to disclose the agent w...

Except for the steak dinner a friend invited me to in Kona a while back, I have not readily thought of going out for a steak. It used to be a craving but I have lessened my intake of red meat for years. Not on purpose, it just sort of happened. For one thing, it gets harder to eat once living thi...

There is some kind of deal with my Mercedes where I get free GPS for 3 years, and then I think they try to find a way to charge for it. Everybody seeks subscription-based services today so they can charge you over and over. You own nothing. You lease everything.Which wouldn't be so bad if it was ...

Last week I wandered over to Planet Fitness on Stockton Blvd. in south Sacramento to check it out. I like this particular club because they are all over the country so I can workout regardless of where I am. That particular gym in south Sacramento is huge, bigger than the gym in Kona, yet despite...

Are you tired yet of reading about how many awards have been bestowed upon the Elizabeth Weintraub Team for our production last year? Every year it is pretty much the same. The players change a little bit in the competition, but it is still basically we are the #1 agent in the downtown office of ...

Years ago, when these start-up companies began springing up to capture real estate leads in northern California, I was a bit skeptical. After all, most of them were doing nothing more than forking out big bucks to buy SEO placement and advertising in hopes of capturing the eyeballs of sellers and...

All I can say is I am pretty lucky that my natural disposition is pretty easy going. Plans change? That's OK. I go with the flow, after all, I spend a considerable amount of time in Hawaii where the motto is expect the unexpected. I also actually thought I would simply "ease" back into being in S...

This photo is of the newly remodeled A330 First Class section on Hawaiian Airlines. Surprised me because I wasn't expecting it. Generally, it's one of the older models I hop aboard in Honolulu. The new remodel places pods, in groups of 2, three across. I probably would have noticed it on the seat...

When looking at the statistics for the Sacramento housing market in February of 2019, it is hard to find silver linings, which is what most brokerages try to do. They look for strong signs and focus on those. Which makes me think everybody will be talking about the pending sale numbers, but I lau...

Full disclosure, I did not attend the Lyon real estate awards for 2018 because they were held on March 1, 2019, and I am still in Hawaii, on my winter vacation. Every year, I stay a little bit longer in Hawaii. It started with a two week vacation one winter. Following year it was 3 weeks. Year af...
