Just when I know the California Residential Purchase Agreement (RPA) by heart -- I can practically recite each paragraph in my sleep -- the purchase agreement is being revamped in 2010 by the California Association of REALTORS (C.A.R.). Nothing is written in stone yet, and there may be many more ...

Ah, real estate predictions. See, the thing that is different for me about ending 2009 and preparing for 2010 is I've never in my 30-plus years in real estate started off a new year with so much business already in the works. Generally, the year ends a bit quietly and then explodes about the 5th ...

Some weird things in life can be explained, even if they make no logical sense. Like, right after you wash the car, it's going to rain. Or as soon as the warranty expires on a new appliance, it's going to break. But nothing makes sense about how a service provider such as T-Mobile can pick up roa...

When I show buyers homes in Land Park, they are often amazed at the size of our vintage, classic homes in Land Park. The square footage of an average home in Land Park is generally much smaller than the newer construction home buyers see in places such as Natomas or Elk Grove. My own home in Lan...

When I take photographs, whether it's homes in Land Park or my Sacramento short sale listings, I like to show close-up and personal aspects that one might otherwise not notice. There is generally a texture, a sub-layer, a fine nuance, which can be easily overlooked by viewers, especially online w...

As we flew into Siem Reap, Cambodia, our tour guide prepared us for the dramatic differences between Cambodia and Viet Nam. In Viet Nam, you see economic progress everywhere, new buildings going up, hustle and bustle in the shops and its cities are bursting with energy. In Cambodia, not so much. ...

Far back as I can remember, my family always served ham on Christmas day. So, it's not surprising that I would continue with this tradition as an adult. Besides, it's a lot less work than stuffing a turkey. Every year I prepare a planetary ham with champagne sauce. Ditto for this year. As I wait ...

We were fortunate enough to have been booked at the Majestic Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City. It's a French Colonialist-designed hotel built in 1925 across the street from the Saigon River. Upon arriving, I put on a hotel robe and called the front desk to arrange a massage. My husband left to shoot ph...

This is a picture perfect home situated on a quiet cul-de-sac in the Emerald Park subdivision of Elk Grove. Check out the cheery yellow stucco exterior and abundance of mature landscaping with big trees in the yard. It has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The assessor shows the square footage at 1,752. Th...

I was amazed yesterday when I called 2 agents on 2 listings and both agents answered their cell phones. Christmas week is generally pretty slow, and many agents in Sacramento go on vacation at this time. I've spent most of this week so far following up on my Sacramento short sales and requesting ...
