It's pretty easy to call a Sacramento real estate agent and ask about homes for sale. Zillow publishes my phone number under an alias phone number, and I register that alias to in order to report telemarketers, along with the alias that Trulia uses, at the Do Not Call List. But buyers and sellers...

We all live with minor irritations from day-to-day, and working in Sacramento real estate sometimes seems to magnify these daily flaws. My personal way of dealing with small frustrations is to overlook them and find a way to work around them because my time is better spent on solving challenges I...

Many short sale sellers in Sacramento left California after selling a short sale. Who's to blame them? They moved to other states with more affordable housing such as Washington, Oregon or Texas.

You know, I think pragmatism gets a bad rap in the real estate business but it's actually a very useful way of dealing with conflict. We all run into the people who make mountains out of molehills, and real estate agents in Sacramento are no exception. It's almost like you touch gingerly tap some...

In reviewing my closings, I sometimes spot interesting facts that I bury on the back burner until it pops again. One of the things about being such a focused real estate agent in Sacramento, especially an agent who pays attention to detail, is I recall the small things that other people might for...
