Happy Chinese New Year! 2018 is the Year of the Dog by Silicon Valley REALTOR Michelle Carr CroweGong Hay Fat Choy! For those not familiar with that phrase, it means, "I bestow the wish for you to be wealthy in the New Year!"

Do You Say I Love You to Your Clients or Is It Just Me?  by Silicon Valley REALTOR Michelle Carr CroweMost of you know I believe in sharing the Aloha Spirit with my clients. The other night I said, "I love you," to my clients who were preparing to fly back overseas from Cupertino to China.While I didn't think anything of it at the time, my youngest child giggled at me."What?" I said. "I do love my clients!"Mo said, "I know, it's just cute hearing you actually say it."Then I wondered-do any other agents do this?Images courtesy of www.pixabay.com. Thanks for reading "Do You Say I Love You to Your Clients or Is It Just Me?"

 Health Effects of One Minute of Laughter vs. One Minute of Angerby Cupertino REALTOR Michelle Carr CroweRecently I came across a Facebook video and image from Your Health @YourHealthdailyremind about the different effects one minute of laughter has on the body as compared to one minute of anger. One minute of anger results in toxic chemicals floating in the body for 5 FIVE full hours.One minute of laughter results in positive chemicals strenghtening the immune system for 24 hours-ONE FULL DAY.I prefer to strengthen my immune system with laughter as opposed to weakening my heart and circulation system with anger-how about you?Thanks for reading, "Health Effects of One Minute of Laughter vs. One Minute of Anger".

 Sunday, April 2, 2017 Facebook, Google, Fed's, etc SPYING on everyone by Robert Swetz     Facebook, Google, Fed's, etc SPYING on everyone by Robert Swetz   Now we all know that the social network Facebook tied in with the Federal Government many years ago, and this may be good for tracking the undesirables. But what about normal American citizens, and or other persons from other countries?     Just recently Facebook has added software that wants to save your username & password so all you have to do is click on your profile photo vs typing in your user name & password every time you log into Facebook. Having several Facebook accounts I don't like this and know that Facebook continues to invade our privacy     Facebook is not the only network that is spying on us ... GOOGLE is another c...

What Is A Pre-Emptive Offer? Can Seller Sell Before Offer Deadline?by Silicon Valley REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe  Pre-emptive means "before" and the mental picture is of someone cutting in line and getting ahead of the other people waiting.   It's a horribly disappointing feeling to drive by a home and see a "Too Late!", "Sale Pending" or "Sold!" sign when you haven't even thought to write your offer yet.   Now that the term "Pre-Emptive Offer" is defined, on to the next question ... "Can Seller Sell Before Offer Deadline?"   When a Pre-emptive Offer is received and communicated to the Seller, the Seller may do one of four things:   Accept that Pre-Emptive OfferHold onto the Pre-Emptive OfferCounter it orReject it. So Yes, the Seller can accept any Pre-Emptive Offer:  Before putting the...

What Is Right Price to Offer on San Jose Homes in Cupertino Schools?This is one of the most challenging questions for any home buyer to ponder.Too low an offer and you won't even get a response.Too "safe" around key price points, such as $1.75M or $2M, and you get lost in the crowd and again risk not getting a counter offer.Too high and you wonder if you paid too much money for that house.Homes in San Jose with Cupertino Schools are expected to see price appreciation of at least 8 percent in 2017. Much depends on whether the house is priced at, above, below or way below current market pricing, as well as it's location, accessibility to view and condition.As of Feb. 6, 2017, if it's priced exceptionally low, so far we are seeing 15 to 23% above in the pending sales (sorry the prices are ...
