OK, I was all hepped up to get rid of my plain old telephone line.  I plugged in my MagicJack into my USB port on my computer.  Two days ago I had upgraded to cable modem, so I had plenty of bandwidth outgoing, and I figured this was going to be a slam dunk.  I called a few people, and the new VO...
I decided that with anywhere from 2 to 4 of us at home on the Internet at the same time, I needed to upgrade the Internet connection past basic DSL.  AT&T hasn't upgraded to fiber in the neighborhood, and the distance to the Central Office was too far to get anything more than basic DSL which is ...

If you want to see a big image of the after shot with some comments about ...

I was surprised at how many there were.Notice how few rentals there are in Encinitas except for the coastal area. THere are actually quite a few in Solana Be...
We are constantly looking for new ways to slice and dice the MLS data, so today I implemented our new Granny Flat/Casita/Accessory Unit list. There are many reasons why buyers want a place with a room (or building) with its own entrance and kitchen. So, we finally got around to creating this dyna...
I know that in some parts of the country, local rules ban leaving business cards when you preview a listing.  In San Diego, it is considered a courtesy to the listing agent.  We try to be courteous and leave a card behind.  An established agent whose listing we previewed with a client called us a...
