Agents who don't close very many transactions often tend to err when completing a purchase contract. Oh, they might offer the excuse of this is the way they've always done it, but should one question exactly how many sales have they closed the truth comes out that maybe they've always done it tha...
Even if I'm not always 100% correct at least I have conviction and am candid. You can't say that about every person one runs into in Sacramento real estate. I've been struggling with a certain situation that has been rather difficult for weeks, and when I spoke to the person responsible for much ...
We were out showing homes in Land Park last week to a first-time home buyer in Sacramento, just like any other week in Sacramento real estate. This home buyer expressed displeasure over the number of the house she was considering buying. I'm not going to tell you what the house number is because ...
Like we real estate agents can do anything about a merger between Zillow and Trulia, yet agents are continuing to yammer about how Zillow is an evil monster. You want to know which company is an evil monster? The monster that once promised it would not be evil, that's who. And people wonder why I...

Not every listing has to sell if the seller isn't eager to sell it, and not every seller wants to sell a listing. S...
There are a lot of sellers who never blink twice when I tell them my real estate commission fee, because it's the same fee I've charged for the last 40 years. But there are also those who read articles online stating that agents will negotiate and so they try it with me. I don't blame them for tr...
In the middle of my afternoon of preparing new listings for the week and talking with potential sellers, I ended up taking an emergency listing yesterday that popped up out of nowhere. Well, many listings seem to pop up out of nowhere these days from sellers who suddenly call and need their homes...
Don't you hate it when people say stupid things like I didn't ask to be born? As though there was some kind of choice in the matter instead of realizing we are all simply the byproduct of somebody else's choices. But maybe being a byproduct is why so many people seem to struggle with making impor...
