How accurate is a Zillow Zestimate? Like what's in grandmas's shopping cart - DEPENDS. If you live in a monstrous standard subdivision of homes, all built by the same builder, from 5 floor plans, with little variation, your Zestimate might be pretty accurate. But if you live in a custom area, wit...

This Thanksgiving, I hope to give thanks for my feet and my friends. I will have just completed walking 20 miles a day, 3 days in a row, through the streets of San Diego.  I picture sunny skies, 1800 fellow walkers wearing pink boas, sequined tutus, and men wearing balloon stuffed leopard print b...

A few months ago I sold an historic Vitorian farmhouse in Orangevale built in the late 1880s. Not 19... 18. In California, that is OLD! I know you Easterners scoff at our idea of old, but this was built as one of the first homes of the orchards of Orangevale, since it was split into manageable 10...

A cruise down Fair Oaks Blvd in Carmichael CA has always been a good time to day dream.  There are some pretty ugly billboards, uninspiring block buildings, funky furniture ads, and really not much to look at. I remember it has been voted the ugliest stretch of road in the area recently. Really m...

As long time Realtor in Fair Oaks, CA, I am asked this question a lot. What is the best neighborhood in Fair Oaks? And my answer is like a broken record. It depends on what is important to you.

I always love reminiscing about whose lives I touched as a Realtor the past year. I generally adore my clients - probably due to my "NO JERK" rule of axing any who is an idiot.  (I call it something ruder, to be honest, but it's not suitable for print!) 2014 was no exception - what a great goup o...

The Seller just signed your offer. WooHoo!  Time for the happy dance and a big high five! You are one step closer to weekend honey-do lists!  But what now? First,  escrow will cash your check, so be sure the funds are in that account. No bounced checks, or your Realtor will get cranky. You can al...

Fun Things To Do In And Around Sacramento   Sacramento is an exciting place to live.  Our claim to fame is we are two hours from everything - San Francisco, Lake Tahoe, the Gold Country, the Wine Country, snow skiing, and scuba diving.   But we have our own jewels right here.  Downtown Sac is bur...

The buzz in Fair Oaks Village on Saturday was coming from a scissor life, a couple of guys, and a crow bar yanking the old siding off of an even older building front - 1908 to be exact. The Fair Oaks Brew Pub is coming to town! In the video below, building owner Rich Schmitt talks about the cool ...

It was 1931 - the beginning of the Great Depression.  I was 8 years old. We lived in Lima, Ohio, where Dad worked for the Post Office. He had lost his job. Not good timing. I was the 5th of 7 kids, including twin 1 year old boys. For whatever reason, the prospects out West looked better than Lima...
