I live, work, volunteer and worship in Tracy, CA.  Tracy is located 45 miles east of San Franciso.  The weather here is very mild.  We get bit warmer and a bit colder than San Francisco Bay Area but not by much.  We also get the "delta breeze" as the coast gets cooler than the valley and the wind sucks into the warmer area. However, last night we got WIND.  I don't mean a strong "Delta Breeze" but wild true wind.  I know there are areas that strong winds are common but not here. The morning light showed multiple trees down, branches, leaves, basketball hoops blown over, but even knowing we had had a very windy night (50+MPH winds) I was very suprised to see this on my drive home this morning. What I'm astounded by is that this trampoline had to fly over a house to get here..... what a s...

  I love living in Tracy, CA.  One of the great things is our small town Halloween Parade. Bring your munchkin in costume and join the parade or sit along the street and cheer as the firetrucks, police cards, etc go by. There are few things that are as much fun as the Tracy Halloween Parade, come on down and join the fun.

 I post on Face Book quite often. I don't live there as some people do but I have come to enjoy the look into other peoples lives. I posted on Face Book yeaterday and was overwhelmed at the responses I received. I won'trepost what others wrote, but one of my FB friend who is also an AR blogger practically demanded I repost on AR. So, below is my FB post from yesterday.  Seven years ago this morning at about 7:40 (9 minutes from now) I was hit by a pickup truck while out doing a training ride on my bike. Lot's of life threatening injuries, but when the smoke cleared I was alive and faced a long recovery of almost one year. After 9 months during which my crutches (I called them my dance partners) became my best friend, my mom (smartest and kindest person I have eve...r known) gave me an o...

Recently the Tracy Council of Realtors in conjunction with the Central Valley Association of Realtors held a “Casino Night” fund raiser. One of the primary functions of our council is to raise money to distribute to local charities. The Casino Night event was the second of three events we will hopd this year in those efforts.   To make an event like this successful a lot of people and organizations must pitch in to make it work. The space we used was donated, the 22 raffle prizes were donated, and the food we served was donated. Some of the alcohol we served was donated and the balance sold to us at a deep discount. The labor was volunteer. The DJ service was volunteer. There was much that I should mention but simply to much to remember it all.   The result was a tremendously fun event,...

According to KW research, the top three updates sellers make in preparation for listing their house are fresh paint, new flooring, and updated light fixtures. Surprisingly, sellers spend more than two times as much money updating their house while they live in it than they do getting it ready for sale. To find out which updates matter most, contact The Aguilera Real Estate Team (Keller Williams) in Tracy, California 209-597-8256.

A lot of realtors are really on it when it come to technology and my broker is no exception. She has taught social media classes, spoke about the crucial aps that Realtors must have and so on. I approached her the other day about helping a friend/client of mine with his new I pad He had received it as a gift and was really struggling up the learning curve. My friend/client is in his mid 80s so I give him a lot of credit for having a genuine desire to “figure it out”.   I approached Susan and asked if she would spend a half hour with him, and she readily agreed to do so. I know that it wasn't easy as her schedule is pretty hectic without throwing something like this in.   She ended up spending over 90 minutes with Lee and he took pages of notes. He was quite pleased with what he had lear...
