Real Estate Agent
I am a retired Greater Sacramento Realtor. My career spanned 40 years beginning in 1981, and ending in 2021. MY INTERESTS & HOBBIES: In addition to family activities, I am active in a Sacramento history group, and a local Sacramento area genealogy group. I actively research several family names. I also have a special love of cooking. For several years, I worked at an international software development company, which was represented by people from all over the globe. During that time, I was fortunate enough to learn special recipes from a number of them. They include, Indian, Caribbean, Spanish, Italian, Mexican, Romanian, Hungarian, Irish, and Carolina "Low Country" recipes. I have developed a special interest in mixing certain recipes from varying ethnic groups to create unique recipes and combinations not usually seen. Another of my favorite pastimes is gardening. And, I often find myself spending hours in my garden, and wondering where time has gone! I am interested in photography and cameras. This interest began as a child, and has remained and was perpetuated in my Real Estate career, family activities, and travel. Last but not least, I enjoy travel - both foreign and domestic.

On Friday, I had a busy morning.  The plan was to grocery shop as part of it.  However, by the time I got out my door, it was noon time.  I reasoned that I would try a new Indian restaurant which just opened up in the Greater Sacramento community of Rancho Cordova.  They advertised a lunch time b...

I woke up wide-eyed and bushy tailed this morning. I put on my swimsuit and headed for the health club pool. The clock said, 6:12 am when my toes first became wet. After, an hour of swimming, followed with 15 minutes in the Jacuzzi, I headed home. The weather here in Sacramento, hasn’t yet cleare...
It's not every day, but once in a while I am asked the question, “What is the real estate ‘absorption’ rate, Myrl?”   Although it doesn’t come up often, I hear the the query often enough that I have the explanation in my head to help you understand or absorb absorption rate.Sometimes the question...

It is the REAL ID program which is being fasc...

I have been sitting here the last few days, concerned about the government shutdown that seems to be more about a pissing match for political posturing, than actually sitting down and coming up with any real solutions.As I have mentioned before, I am a long-time non-partisan politically. I am all...
