Here are my top 3 tips for how to submit a purchase offer. Oh, you might think you have heard these before, but I'm betting you haven't. These tips have been running around in my head for several years, and I've had gripes about a few of them here and there, but I don't believe I've ever put all ...
I read an interesting blog question the other day about how to deliver bad news. The blogger's way was to do it in person. That's not always a possibility for me, but I do employ a personal touch when it happens, which isn't all that often. Because sometimes, no matter what you do, bad stuff happ...
Not every Sacramento agent in the real estate business is cognizant of what it means to interfere in another agent's listings. For example, an agent might spot a listing and think if the agent just bides time, eventually the listing will expire and then the seller will list with him or her. So, s...
Sometimes, I type faster than my keyboard can register to my monitor screen. Or, I click faster than my computer can respond.

Short sales are fluid and constantly changing. What was true in a Sacramento short sale yesterday might not be true today. There are movements, though, that can be predicted. A movement I noted in January and everybody seemed to have pooh-poohed is the fact that short sales are slowing down. Ther...
The Sacramento Courthouse is a wild and wooly place. I knew where it was located downtown, but I had never been inside until yesterday, when I reported for jury duty. Just watching people -- especially the lawyers -- was a trip. There's definitely a dress code. All of the male lawyers wore black ...
Many of my clients serve on juries. I know because when I send them an email, I get admonished in a return email.
