Looks like the crooks on Zillow are running over to Trulia with photos from Coming Soon on Zillow and posting homes for rent that are actually for sale. I caught one of my new listings of a home in Land Park today in Trulia as a rental scam. Usually I wait 24 hours for Trulia to download new list...
There are some things in my Sacramento real estate business that I should probably not do but I do it anyway. Like eat cinnamon-sprinkled apple slices over my keyboard while I type with cinnamon-stained fingers. I also tend to give away information for free when maybe I should not. But that would...
The market in Sacramento is pretty much crazy right now with low inventory and high demand. If you're a listing agent with a desirable listing in an attractive location, you can milk that listing for every dime it can produce and a buyer will pay it. If a listing is not located in a high demand a...
I don't get out very much to mingle with other people unless I'm with my husband or my team members, so it was doubly nice for me to attend a birthday party last night at the Riverside Clubhouse in Land Park for an agent in my office who turned 80. She is such an inspiration to me -- to everybody...
A home seller in the Sacramento area told me yesterday that she has concluded you get what you pay for when you hire a Sacramento REALTOR. She had been trying to sell her home without any success through some discount agent, and she doesn't feel that her former agent had her best interests at hea...

I do not need an excuse to dine at Ella Dining Room and Bar, although it is tough to get a table, almost impossible, without an advance reservation. Same day is a royal PITA. But lunch is generally open, although I make reservations for lunch, too, just to get the points on Open Table, the points...
When I re-read the part in my personal blog on my personal website today about four Sacramento real estate agents trying to open a SUPRA iBox with Bluetooth technology, I was reminded of course of the joke: how many agents does it take to open a MetroList lockbox, but I wasn't gonna go there. Bec...
Just when I think my day can't get any better, with my ISP on the blink, my iBox not working, the fact I have to make a special one-hour trip this afternoon to pick up Lactated Ringer's solution, which is on a nationwide shortage list -- none of that is going to ruffle my great attitude. Not even...
A tenant at one of my listings sent me a text message a while back warning that I better be careful about how I communicate with her if I wanted good reviews. That kind of threw me for a loop because I don't work for the tenant, and I certainly wasn't asking her for a review. Then it dawned on me...
