When I sit down at my computer in the morning to write a blog, I never know what will pour out of my fingertips. I try not to put too much thought into it, and sometimes it shows, but I write about whatever pops into my head.  I figure the important thing is to write about what I know, what's imp...
I am not the only Sacramento real estate agent who has noticed the trend. January of 2013 has been a rather odd month as compared to other years. Although the activity has been a bit slower because inventory has dwindled, there seems to be a rising interest in selling Sacramento homes that are no...
Choosing a Sacramento real estate agent based on the amount of commission the agent charges is kind of nuts, and I'll tell you why today. On the surface, it probably sounds very sensible to make a hiring decision based on cost, but it's not. I mean, everybody wants to know the price of a service,...
I try to take Sundays off, depending on the flow of phone calls and business at hand, but as a Sacramento real estate agent it's not always possible. Fortunately, I have a pretty understanding spouse who doesn't put up much of a fuss when I have to handle a business item that pops up unexpectedly...

You might think it's easy to take a complicated subject and break it down into layman terms until you try it. If you need proof -- an...
Every once in a while, when working on a Bank of America short sale in Equator, my computer will make a funny little buzzing noise just before it shuts down. It goes temporarily black and then back on again, almost instantly. Which is very weird since I have a backup battery and two of them at th...
The wait for a Chase Bank short sale to end up in Equator is over. We've been hearing that Chase Bank was sending all short sales to Equator for more than a year now. It's like being a little kid at Christmas . . . See, at my house growing up, my parents were too poor to buy a Christmas tree week...
A reader of my homebuying website on About.com wrote to me this morning to ask about Fannie Mae HAFA short sales. He wondered if they had expired, and sure enough, they have. There is a little exception that if you started a Fannie Mae HAFA short sale prior to December 31, you have until Septembe...
One of the things that I read in my client reviews over and over about this Sacramento real estate agent is how much my clients value my communication and service skills. They are blown away that I respond quickly to their needs. Little do they know that I provide that kind of service because if ...
Well, this could take me all day, to write a blog about questions not to ask a Sacramento short sale agent. Because I get a ton of questions all of the time, and some of them would simply blow you away. I'm not going to tell you who they come from because I try to have empathy for my fellow agent...
