Welcome From Sunny Sacramento!

By
Real Estate Agent with Sacramento Region, Coldwell Banker

Hi Everyone! Well, I plunged in and finally joined Active Rain and feel like I should have done this much sooner. So, I decided to try joining and doing my first post all on the same day - I know, most of you have probably been doing this for so long you don't even realize what the big deal is!

So I'm here in sunny Sacramento, Ca (90 degrees and counting) and planning my upcoming week while our Golden Retriever is noisily dreaming of her past week right by my feet (pictures of her will come when I figure out how to add pictures..) and I got to thinking how different my job would be if the weather was not so sunny and dry most of the time. By the way I grew up in England, so I absolutely know what rain is all about - why do you think I landed in California?

Anyway, the point is, how much I admire my colleagues in less blessed climates. I used to go back to Chicago in a previous life every November for a medical convention and had to get all dolled up in heavy coats, boots, scarves, hats and gloves for going outside only to break into a sweat the minute I'd get in a taxi or go into a building or shop. So I can't imagine getting my clients into my car to tour houses and pulling into driveways hoping to not get so soggy the sellers would dread you all steeping foot into their beautifully staged homes. Yuk!

My hat, gloves and wimpy Califonia soul says kudos to all of you who go through this and much more throughout the year!  Have a great week!

Hi Sheila, nice to hear about your different experiences.  I was also born in England, and ended up somewhere much warmer.  I hope you enjoy your time here.

Hi Sheila~  I enjoyed reading your introduction post.  As a transplant from Erie, PA to Austin, TX, I can relate to weather climate change.  Of course, Austin is well into 30 days and counting of over 100 degree temperatures so I can only dream of a cool breeze.  Still, I wouldn't trade Austin for our northern climate.  By the way, my sister relocated her from living in Sacramento for 30 years and has no regrets.  Happy blogging.

Thanks to all of you for your kind encouraging words! I feel like this is going to be a great education and a fun way Fair Oaks, Californiato get to know folks from far and near.  Now if I could just figure out out to get these words to wrap around the picture!!
