 FHA Home Loans - 5% Down on FHA loans? Really? - Santa Rosa, CA
I love the way Bridget McGee writes and wanted to pass this nice posting about potential FHA home loan changes to my Santa Rosa, California Real Estate Agents. I wish I had more time to write as well and as thoroughly as Bridget. I have to agree, the government is trying to fix a cracked dam with spackle.
However, they have a fine line to walk between overregulation and complete market collapse. I don't envy their position and I'm not smart enough to even consider a solution for … (2 comments)

Jim Cheney is one of the most knowledgeable Santa Rosa Real Estate agents that I've met through Activerain. I love his postings about the local areas and wanted to share this one in particular because it highlights one of my favorite places to visit in Santa Rosa, Ca.

What is it about ice cream that just works no matter what the weather is like?
The other day, my wife an i were driving around town, in the rain, taking care of our chores when we both looked at each other and said, "Ice Cream!" Now, there are plenty of ice cream shops in the Sonoma County Wine Country, but there's only one place to get truly rich, creamy and deliciously hand made ice cream that's served fresh everyday. That place is called … (2 comments)

FHA Home Loans - Santa Rosa, CA - New Short Sale Rules 2010
I don't know if this has been mentioned, but it's well worth noting. FHA has loosened up the guidelines for home owners who had to go through a short sale of their owner occupied home. This new change will allow home owners who went through a short sale to re-enter the real estate market as home buyers again. If you think about the number of previous home owners who were locked out of the real estate market, you'll understand the significance of this change in the FHA short … (0 comments)

My wife and I were walking through a neighborhood, when I spotted this from 4 blocks away! This Agave Plant was about four 6 feet tall and one of three on the property. It was a beautiful sight that I wanted to share. Dave Roberts, an Activerainer in Healdsburg, would know more about this plant. I'm going to drop him a line to see if he can help out.

My wife and I don't go out to dinner often so we tend to be very picky with the places we like to go to eat. If we find a new restaurant that's not very good the first time we go there, we usually don't come back. Through the years, we've narrowed down the list of our favorite restaurants to a handfull of places that we love going back to depending on the type of food we're both in the mood for.

I'm proud to announce Wells Fargo was Awarded"Best of the Best" by Olive Tree Publishing!
It's always nice to work for a company that makes an effort to ensure there's a diverce group of employees within their organization. Last year, I participated in a training event sponsored by Wells Fargo that really emphasized diversity in management. As an Asian American, I was very happy to meet other multi-ethnic leaders in the organization that were being groomed to move further up the corporate ladder.

Today, I found out Wells Fargo was given an award by Olive Tree Publishing for "Best of the … (2 comments)

Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition - Santa Rosa CA - Sonoma County Wine Country Lifestyle
This Fall, my wife and I enjoyed riding through several trails in Forestville, Sebastopol and Santa Rosa that were manicured for road cyclist by the Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition. The bike path had signs about the history of the area and directional arrows guiding you through the few turns that you couldn't see. After the third ride, we decided to join the Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition as our way to contribute financially to this non-profit organization.

Apple’s Top Free Real Estate Related iphone apps for Realtors and home buyers in Sonoma County Wine Country
This Christmas, Santa was very generous and gave me an iphone 3G from Apple. Ever since I got the iphone, I’ve been glued to the screen learning about its features and its many applications. My wife is probably going to take the iphone away from me soon if I don’t stop looking at it every 5 minutes! Anyway, in the interest of the real estate world that I’m a part of, I thought it would be appropriate to see what kind of apps … (18 comments)

sonoma county: How would you like to sell houses with this technique? - 01/02/10 10:47 AM
I found this video today that just blew my mind. The company, called NuFormer Digital Media, has a way to create 3-D images and project them onto a building using the building's multilayered features as part of the image. Now, it looks to me like you need a large surface area to make these projections, but I can foresee having this used on a smaller scale as the technology evolves. Can you imagine driving by a house at night to see one of these projections on the front of the house? Hmm. Enjoy.

It just clicked that we are going into a whole new decade again! Isn't that right? 
We are not only transitioning into a new year, but we are starting a whole new 10 years! As I wrote my last posting, I realized we are no longer going to be in single digit mode.

After reading several posts on AR about online marketing, I decided to follow the advice on one of the postings here about online reputation management.
