I bought a water-bottle holder for my bicycle while shopping at our Sacramento REI for vacation clothes this past weekend. My husband and I and an REI sales clerk had a huge discussion about whether the water-bottle holder would fit my bike, but fortunately, REI also sells my bike model. Yup, the...
In the movie Elysium, which we saw yesterday without any help from Siri -- SIRI, where is Elysium playing in Sacramento? Answer: Do you want ewes in Sacramento -- Earth has turned into a Mexican border town and, Elysium, where the rich people live, is Canada, with lush-green lawns everywhere. Ear...
Long ago, long ago, I decided to align myself with popular Sacramento real estate websites and advertise on those websites. I took the time to become familiar with many national websites as well, so I can promote my listings everywhere online. If a buyer for a home in Sacramento could not find on...
I was fidgeting with the F-stop when I shot this photo of daisies freshly plucked from my yard in Land Park. I'm always looking for new ways to tweak my photos, especially of homes that I sell in Sacramento. Photos are the key to every listing. You can be a terrible real estate agent who takes g...

Today I'm thinking about snobs and snobbish behavior. Pompous, arrogant and ostentatious people. The kind who walk around with their noses in the air and think everybody should move out of their way when they spot them coming, like Moses parting the Red Sea. These are the kinds of people that we ...
There are people in Sacramento, generally those under 40, who say they will never subscribe to the newspaper in print because they can get all of their news online. Well, they can get some of the news, but they won't get all of it through an online subscription. To get a wide-based news feed, one...
If it's possible to turn a short sale into an equity sale, that's exactly what a seller should do for many reasons, especially if that home is in foreclosure. Some Sacramento neighborhoods are right on the border between those homes being short sales or equity sales. Pulling a home out of foreclo...
Generally, real estate agents in Sacramento are not so danged competitive that they forget we're all in this business together. We rely on each other, and it's one of the reasons why I enjoy being a Sacramento real estate agent. We learn from each other, and we support each other, which also mean...
