Sacramento Agents Should Support Other Agents

Sacramento Agents Should Support Other Agents

It's no secret I believe that Sacramento agents should support other agents. Agents often tell me how appreciative they are that I share real estate tips and my experiences. If I received these types of comments only once or twice, I'd think nothing more of it, but it's repetitive. This blows me away because sharing comes naturally to me. Its implication makes me suspect that maybe other agents aren't willing to come forward or share with other agents, and I don't really know why. What comes around, goes around. There aren't really any secrets in this business. And there's no reason to[...]
Working With First-Time Home Buyers in Sacramento

Working With First-Time Home Buyers in Sacramento

Probably because of the low inventory in Sacramento, we have been working lately with a larger than usual number of first-time home buyers. Almost half of sales this year so far are first-time home buyers in Sacramento. The rest are move-up buyers, which are also out in droves and sellers. Generally I work with these sellers to list and sell their home, and my team members help them to find a new home. We have a lot of competition for some homes but our buyers tend to end up in escrow fairly quickly, because we know the business. It's not easy for buyers to[...]
Doesn't Everybody Dream About Bono?

Doesn't Everybody Dream About Bono?

If you've ever had a dream about Bono, you'll like this story. They (that ubiquitous they) say that regardless of what Freud says, the only person who can truly interpret your dreams is you. Like most people, I have doozies. Last night I went to Dublin and ended up at Bono's apartment by mistake. I walked in and wandered around, admiring the scattering of diamonds and emeralds about the apartment. Because that's exactly how Bono would decorate, right? Peeking into the living room, I spied Bono and The Edge, sitting on the sofa, thumbing through a travel magazine. They were[...]
When REO Agents in Sacramento Don't Call

When REO Agents in Sacramento Don't Call

It's a fact that REO agents in Sacramento don't always call. However, many of the REO listing agents I know are hard-working and ethical agents. They have a ton of listings to process, and they don't always earn a full commission because banks negotiate hard on fees. I try to cut them slack when I'm writing offers on REOs because I realize that many REO agents won't answer or take phone calls. On top of which, banks can take two to three days, sometimes longer, to respond to an offer. It doesn't do any good to repeatedly call an REO agent[...]
Never Let Them Tell You No When the Answer Should be Yes

Never Let Them Tell You No When the Answer Should be Yes

Never let them tell you no. Although my husband may disagree with what I'm about to say, that's his prerogative, but I think of myself as a pretty easy-going and mostly unfazed person. It takes a lot to rile me up. Like most people, I suppose, I do get my knickers into a twist when I'm dealing with unethical behavior, injustice or discrimination. But lousy customer service, hey, I live in California, so I've pretty much comes to terms with the fact that we have too many people to serve and underpaid / untrained staff to adequately serve consumers. In my[...]
