Don't ask me where this sign was located in Sacramento or which company because I didn't take the photo, my team member Josh did. He often sends me cute photos of places he goes. Generally it's places like the top of El Capitan in Yosemite or the bottom of river gorges in Idaho, not the front yar...

It is really tough to find the middle ground where one needs to take up residence when explaining the real estate market to Sacramento sellers. On the one hand, I don't sugarcoat anything. I give it to my potential clients straight and explain what has happened, what is happening now and what is ...

Home buyers in Sacramento know something is changing in our real estate market, but they are not sure what that means to them, exactly. Some interpret the change to mean they can make crazy lowball offers, which they always can if they can find an agent to pursue that strategy. Others need to buy...

What I reiterate in my personal blog about today about the journey to Sacramento from Kona will not apply much, I predict, in the future. Primarily because Alaska Airlines now has flights directly to Sacramento from Kona. Hawaiian Airlines does not. Hawaiian flies to Maui and to Oahu but not dire...

Could not resist this adorably cute photo I shot at the Kona Bark Park yesterday. The pooch on the left is some sort of rare breed that my friend Linda rescued. When she adopted Honey Bun, the dog was afraid of everyone. Now, a few years later, she suffers only from separation anxiety, so Linda t...

While I dislike dealing with passwords, I now password-protect just about everything. In fact, I just discovered yesterday that my website has protocols that only 30% of the other websites have, which caused my VPN to block it. The company that hosts my website is fairly advanced. So the hosting ...

Why are these listings still here? This a question I have asked myself lately. We are priced at market value for the most part and no grabs. You might think it would be condition because today's buyers want remodeled, turnkey properties, with all the modern bells and whistles. None of this oak ca...

In talking with a woman in Kona last week, it made me ponder what people do with the title to their homes. This woman has been taking care of an elderly couple, and one of them died. The other might not be around for much longer, either. As payment for services this woman has rendered over the ye...

All Sacramento Realtors are not the same just like all Sacramento sellers are not the same. Every seller has a different agenda and method that she or he uses to go about picking an agent. Sometimes a seller will say, I am only interviewing one other agent. And when I ask who it is, the seller mi...

Apart from my thumb throbbing this morning -- I have iPhone thumb from pushing my home button too much, if you can  believe that; it is really sore -- the other nagging pain is the fact our purchase contracts tuck data on page 4 that should be on the front page. That data is whether the buyer wil...

Ductless AC or mini-split systems have been around for a while but I haven't really heard much about them until recently. Which is odd given the fact I live in a city like Sacramento where temperatures climb to 115 in the summer. Homeowners in some lower-income neighborhoods don't even have a win...

Sometimes, you just can't win by trying, but it does help to keep your priorities in focus. I do this by looking at the big picture and reassessing situations, especially when encountering out of area agents. It can be tough when that agent is representing the buyer because the agent does not kno...

Being a Sacramento Realtor, I cannot stop looking at houses. Which is a good thing given my profession. Doesn't matter where I am in the world, I can't walk past a real estate brokerage without stopping to look at homes in the window. It's kind of like an obsession. Even while I am in Hawaii and ...

One of the drawbacks for me with the way Zillow imports data from MLS is my name needs to be first on the listing. I really prefer my team member's name to be first so he or she can directly manage the buyer calls. However, with my name first in MLS, I get hit with all the drama, spammers, can-I-...

One of the perks of being a frequent flyer between Sacramento and Kona is the opportunity to watch movies. Only because there is no WIFI on Hawaiian Airlines. Heck, this trip, Hawaiian Airlines didn't even send me an email to check in for my flight in Sacramento. Halfway through my day yesterday ...

This is a bird I rarely see in Sacramento. Maybe because they don't much hang out in Land Park. Or maybe just not my yard. But yesterday I was very excited to have discovered a Northern Flicker prancing around my back yard. I could not get a better photo than the one I'm showing you here because ...

You can just hear how it must have happened. Dude, look, we can go over to Zillow and scrape off their list of agents. These agents are like gold, man, because they pay Zillow. We'll put them all together on a list for each metropolitan city, and then create a separate web page for each city list...

Sometime back in February I recall asking my husband if he felt like checking out the spot where the old Rubicon Brewing Company used to occupy for many decades in Midtown. It's on Capitol Avenue by 20th Street. Nice location for walking around Midtown Sacramento. But they weren't quite ready, an...

Don't get me wrong, there are times when a lowball is called for. Like, when the property is grossly overpriced. I recall maybe 15 years ago writing an offer for a buyer on a home in Land Park. It was listed around a million and my buyers got the place for about $600K. Today it is easily worth mo...
