I had a great customer experience yesterday. What surprised me the most was that I was surprised. I was hoping, but not expecting, that the company involved would step up to the plate and make things right. Well, they did.

Where I live in Sonoma County, the landscape is anything but level. If you are used to living in an area where everything is flat for as far as you can see, you might appreciate the scenery here. Personally, I've been to "flat" and I didn't care for it. I guess it just depends on what you are us...

Right or wrong, I'm seeing more and more folks using the "opportunity" of a foreclosure to solve long running disputes with their neighbors. Have you ever had a neighbor who wouldn't prune the tree that was leaning on your fence? How about the neighbor who decided to do some landscaping and capt...
