The last time I checked, our MLS is owned at least 50% by a handful of brokers in Sacramento. You would think that MLS might reach out to its membership through a survey to determine which features are useful or to gather opinions on types of improvements members would like to see, but that idea ...

This topic makes me think about a former and now deceased husband who liked the phrase, if you walk like a duck, talk like a duck, then you are a duck. He was a seminar speaker, one of the early pioneers in real estate. His focus was turning ordinary people into rockstars or at least making these...

Here is my cheery New Year's Eve message today. As Hella Rothwell and I gaze from our balcony at the ocean and Diamond Head from our top floor room at the Halekulani.It constantly astonishes me when agents display such stupid behavior in the name of building business for themselves and that they ...

One of the perks of being in Hawaii around Christmas-time is my phone rarely rings. But not this year, for some reason. Why aren't people with their families celebrating? Why are they calling real estate agents? Well, maybe it's the eggnog. Or, maybe it's a sheer desire to buy a home, which can h...

Ya gotta love the buyer agents who think they know everything about your listing, seller intentions and how they would market, yet they really know only what they want. Which is not in agreement with your objective. But that doesn't stop them from trying to tell a listing agent how to do her job....

This time of year is generally a bit slower than it's been this week before Christmas. You'd think people would be off enjoying time with their families, wrapping presents, attending parties, but instead they are out looking at homes in Sacramento to buy. One set of buyers were boarding a plane w...

I'm going to date myself a bit, and tell you a little story from the dawning of my childhood.  In the decades ramping up to the 1960s, America's cities weren't plagued by graffiti on fences, walls, bridges, and just about every surface vulnerable to a spray can.    However, I was born during Worl...

When home sellers refuse to sign a counter offer, as a listing agent, what can you do? The sellers are your clients. Listing agents must maintain a fiduciary relationship with sellers. We must represent our clients to the fullest of our ability and always keep their best interests at the forefron...

Buying real estate is similar to having a baby. You tend to forget how painful it can be because the rewards are so great. If you could remember, you might not want to do it again. In my opinion, selling is much easier than buying but it can also be stressful.One of the ways that I help my seller...

Yesterday morning I spotted an email delivered to my inbox that contained a brand new listing. I have targeted specific neighborhoods with hotsheets in MLS (boy, that's an old term, hotsheets), to keep abreast of all activity. In this particular neighborhood, an interesting new listing popped up....

Things are beginnng to look up in November in Sacramento. December has taken off like a bang, too. At least for me, I don't know how well other agents are faring. I can tell you that September and October were very slow months, which has been out of the ordinary for me. Did not take very many lis...

I am fond of saying that I could buy my own island in French Polynesia if I had received every offer that buyer's agents said they were sending over the past 40 years. Because it is true. I find buyer's agents are often FAR more excited about the prospects of a house than their buyers are. They t...

The Southside Urban Villas were all the rage when they were built 11 years ago. That's because little infill development was happening in Sacramento at that time. Most of the homes you could buy near Southside Park, which borders Land Park going toward downtown, were much older, vintage classics....

 Rarely do I oversleep in Hawaii, but this morning I did not wake up until the Lowe's contractor guys were hitting my Ring Doorbell, which chimes very loudly in our master bedroom. BTW, I highly recommend getting the Chime feature doohickey for that contraption. Pulled me out of a sound sleep.I h...

Some agents learn how to sell real estate by memorizing sales techniques and making canned statements. It works for them, I guess, but it's never been authentic to me. Yeah, yeah, all the world's a stage and we are but bit actors, still, it doesn't seem the way to go in my mind. The way to go is ...

Let me be clear that I am not badmouthing all agents. It is always just a few that ruin it for the rest of us. One thing I have noticed over my 40+ years in real estate is there seems to be a) no shortage of scumball agents and b) that puts us always on high alert that a client could confuse the ...

Yes, my prediction for today is December real estate sales in Sacramento could be much stronger than you might expect.  There is a lot of doom and gloom talk going around, and I see the numbers, too. Sure, interest rates are climbing, sales prices have appreciated, and now we are moving into a mo...

By the time you read this, I shall be 30,000 feet in the air without WiFi. Yup, on this day of November, I am moving my real estate business from my summer home in Sacramento to my winter home in Hawaii. It doesn't mean I sell real estate in Hawaii. It means I still sell real estate in Sacramento...
