I received a phone call this week from an agent who represented the buyer for one of my listings that we closed late last year.  The new home owners decided to take advantage of a great deal we have in Sonoma County called the Sonoma County Energy Independence Program (SCEIP). Great, I thought to...

My favorite Peanuts comic strips are the ones where Snoopy is a World War I flying ace.  He would fly his Sopwith Camel into the heat of battle with the intent of bringing down his archenemy, the Red Baron. Charles M. Schulz, the creator of the Peanuts comic strip, was quite the celebrity in Sono...

I'll be the first to admit, I wasn't always paying attention in class when I should have been.  But when I learned that the acceptance of a money order differs on where you purchased it, I was speechless.  I thought a money order was a money order.  No. I just received an e-mail from HUD saying m...

I was checking up on a listing on Sunday, when I looked down a driveway and saw a wild turkey, which is quite common here.  But something seemed wrong with the tail.  It wasn't until I got closer that I figured out it wasn't one Tom I was looking at, it was two.

Blossoms, Bees and Barnyard Babies!  Sonoma County is having an open house this weekend, but not the kind you are probably used to.  No, this isn't an open house for a short sale or a bank owned property.  This is an open house hosted by Sonoma County Farm Trails. Do you know where your food come...

L Section, Rohnert Park, CA 94928 When I first arrived in Rohnert Park 25 years ago to hunt for a condo, I was asked by my real estate agent which section in Rohnert Park I was most interested in.  Section?  The agent explained to me that Rohnert Park is divided into neighborhoods called sections...

I was just about to blog about this very important bill that has been signed (SB 401) when I found Elizabeth's post.  I couldn't have said it any better so I am re-blogging her post instead.  California agents, let's spread the word to our owner-occupied sellers who closed a short sale in 2009.SB...

My granddaughter (age 7) is with me for a week during her school's Spring Break.  She has only seen the ocean three times.  Today was the first time I've been able to get her to join me in the surf.  Based on the smile on her face, I'm pretty darn sure she had a good time. These pictures were tak...
