My buyer's agent went out of town this weekend, so I had to funnel some business to other agents in my office, plus I put together a couple of transactions myself. This was on top of writing my homebuying articles for The New York Times' website About.com, following up on showings and preparing n...

One of my favorite restaurants in Sacramento is The Waterboy. I'm not alone in that opinion. Many Sacramentans love The Waterboy. What's not to love? Creative yet traditional cuisine, local ingredients, great wine selection, excellent service and convenient location in Midtown. I'm also a big fan...

If you work for the state of California in Sacramento, then you probably know that Gov. Jerry Brown is trying to cut in half the state's fleet of cars. He hopes to save $16.5 million from our budget by stopping the state from buying new cars and selling state cars that are not needed. Naturally, ...

If I am going to lose a short sale to foreclosure in Sacramento, odds are that short sale is probably with PNC Bank. I'll tell you why.

Do you have any idea how difficult it is to type with a squirmy kitten in your lap? I can't let my new kitty, Jackson, run all over the house yet because a) my other cats have not yet adjusted to him and b) he might scoot behind the refrigerator and not come out. He also likes to chew on things. ...

Staying positive while going through a short sale can be a real struggle for some people. Short sales, whether they are taking place in Sacramento or Pocatello, are about the same anywhere in that they can take their toll. Some agents, after attempting a short sale, swear off and say they will ne...

The woman sitting in the window seat asked, "Why can't you find a cat in Sacramento?" We sat in the second row on a 70-minute flight yesterday to San Diego. She was going to visit her daughter in La Jolla, and I was heading for a sidewalk outside of baggage claim to stand in the bright sun for a ...

We all know what happens when decisions are made in committees. Too many fingers in the pie, too many opinions and not enough cooperation. Throw in a few extreme egos, bad haircuts and tight shoes, and you've got a recipe for a brand new California short sale addendum. The new C.A.R. form, SSA, w...
