I'm sure you've heard this before, but it's true. I never realized that a book about friendship could change the way I approach my life and my relationships. And this is important why? Well, because every business is based on the kind of relationships we build. No one wants to be "sold" and not many of us want to purchase anything of importance from someone we don't know, trust or feel comfortable with.Just to clarify, the book "Seeking Girlfriend for Lonesome George" was originally written as a children's story, but after being translated into English it appeals more to adults, as well as the young at heart. It also leaves the reader with a wonderful lifelong message about hope and friendship. The illustrations were so wonderfully crafted; they vividly made the story quite enchanting.S...

I Have Sock Problems You’re probably thinking the issue is about unmatched pairs…one getting lost in the dryer as they do…or holes in the heels or toes, or no clean socks to wear.  That’s not it at all. I have a large collection of colorful socks that started about 5 years ago with gifts from my older daughter at Christmas, and the collection has grown, year by year.  Some are somewhat understated, while others are quite colorful, adding an intriguing contrast to jeans or dress slacks. So here are my Sock Problems. My wife was doing some Human Resources consulting for a well-known ad agency in San Diego a few years ago. One of the 3 principles recently started a company called Sock Problems. Sock Problems is a clever, San Diego-based company founded in 2017 that raises money for various...

10th Annual Brasil Jazz FestaSunday March 4th in San Diego I can’t wait to attend the 10th Annual Brasil Jazz Festa taking place at Dizzy’s in San Diego, tomorrow, March 4, beginning at 6 pm. We went to the first 4 or 5 of these festivals when they were held in Encinitas, but have only been to one of them downtown and it’s been a few years.  The music was always wonderful, and with a relatively small audience in an intimate venue, it’s a special treat, in particular if you are a Brazlian music. We have gotten to know some of the musicians/singers who are regulars and it’s been fun to see them at other performances around the city over the years as they have grown in popularity.  We have been following the Danny Green Trio now for 10 years, and have been to multiple concerts including a ...

TOO LATE for this 1-Bedroom Condo for Sale in San Diego  Sorry, but it’s too late for buyers to consider 4860 Rolando Court #3 at Tuscany Place off El Cajon Boulevard. This 1-bedroom 1-bath condo, a rarity in the 92115 area, was a great opportunity for a buyer, or an investor looking for an excellent rental opportunity in a great location near shopping, dining, services, transportation, major commuting routes (8, 15 and 805 freeways), and San Diego State University.   Buyers quickly realized the opportunity, and showings started within an hour of the property hitting the MLS. Multiple showings meant multiple offers and the property is now pending as of last night. Tuscany Place at Rolando Court is a security building, offering a workout room, laundry room on same floor as the unit (on t...

Staging in the Rain This is not about our stagers here in the Rain, and there are some terrific ones, but I had to come up with a clever, but realistic, title.  I had a staging scheduled for this past Tuesday for a wonderful 1-bedroom condo near San Diego State University I am bringing to the market tomorrow. It figures that our first, and badly needed, rain of our supposed rainy season would be that day.  The condo is in an urban area not far from downtown, so parking is a challenge. And as luck would have it the city had put out no parking signs for some reason that was not obvious – nothing was happening - in the available parking areas in front of the building and on side streets.  Thankfully there was a parking space for the stager in one of the 4 first-come first-served tenant spa...

Happy 2018! It's time to get back to blogging and what better way to start than by helping homeowners sell their San Diego home without a Realtor? Yes, that's right!  This month I will devote myself to sharing my 14 years and 200 transactions worth of wisdom.Now ask me, "do I think everyone should sell without a Realtor?"  The answer is 'no.' That said, market conditions have been very hot for sellers. For those who wish to go it alone, then it is possible.First on my list of tips for today is 'revisit your list price.' Yes, I know your home is better than everyone else's out there. But is it really?  Are you advertising your home at your dream price or a price that has recently been established by market comparables?  The number one mistake fsbo (for sale by owner) mistake sellers make...
