In a bold move for the California State Bar Association, it has released the names of 16 California lawyers suspected of misconduct regarding loan modifications. The Bar Association is conducting an internal investigation in this matter and has released the names in favor of public protection. No...

In keeping with my husband's concert-going theme, which seems to be "go see 'em before they croak," we went to see Merle Haggard perform last night at the Mondavi Center for Performing Arts in Davis, California. This time we finagled seats in the 6th row, center stage. Since I've never sat that c...

It ain't over until the fat lady sings. Some negotiations take time, especially for a Sacramento real estate agent. It doesn't need to be a short sale, either, to end up with 4 or 5 or more counter offers on a transaction. In fact, many short sale offers are accepted in the first go-around, but a...

Kevin Morisawa promised me 30 days ago that our new lawn in Land Park would be finished within a month, and he was right on the money. My home, like many homes in Land Park, was built a long time ago, 61 years ago to be exact. That's almost as old as I am. I doubt that the lawn has ever been re-s...

Most Sacramento short sale agents have worked on a Bank of America short sale at some point in their career. They know the challenges this type of short sale presents. In fact, some agents I know refuse to even list a property that involves Bank of America. There are different problems if the loa...

People find it difficult to believe that when I started in this business in the 1970s, I sold homes without inspecting them. Never saw them. I owned a small real estate company and was responsible for counseling buyers, writing and negotiating the transactions. My agents tracked down the deals. A...

Sarah, not her real name, is retired and just sold her home in the Bay area. She is in a position to pay all cash for a home and prefers to live around other seniors in Sacramento. I suggested an area of Natomas called Heritage Park. This is an active adult community for people over the age of 55...

The view will take your breath away. On a clear day, you can see Mt. Diablo and the valley below. This El Dorado Hills short sale is located in the prestigious gated community of Serrano. From El Dorado Boulevard, head up Serrano Parkway for 2.6 miles and turn right on Torino. You're in command o...

I sort of feel like a modern day Paul Revere. As though I should lower the top on my car and go racing throughout Sacramento with a bullhorn screaming, "The foreclosures are coming, the foreclosures are coming." But why? Why, when I can write a blog about it instead? REO agents in my office have ...

Who knew Bermuda grass would be so difficult to kill? Probably everybody but me. When Kevin told me it would take about a month before my new sod would be installed, he was right on the money. This is the time of year that we see many homes in Land Park undergo some type of renovation. Kids are b...
