I don't know if I would go so far as to call myself the top short sale agent in Sacramento, but then I don't have to because the Sacramento Press said it for me.

The temperature in Sacramento hit 108 on June 28th, the hottest it's ever been on that day  (my birthday) since Sacramento record-keeping began in 1900.

I love going to rock concerts. Except for the part where I fall asleep at 10 PM because it's past my bedtime. So, sometimes my husband rents a music DVD. We close up the windows and crank up the surround sound. The cats don't like it much, though. But it gives us front row VIP seats to the band w...

Now, I know what you're thinking: Oh, she just made up that blog title about a Sacramento short sale agent making a porno to attract attention, right? Well, yes and no.
