Loan MOD Not Working! We can Help Riverside Homeowners.     New statistics from the OCC reveal that nearly 50% of homeowners with modified loans are still in danger of foreclosure.   Read the full report here.     Just because your loan mod isn't working--or you can't get approved for one--doesn't mean you're locked into your high-interest mortgage. You can still sell your home and take advantage of today's historically low interest rates to either lower your monthly payment or increase the quality of your home for the same price! Find out how much your home is worth today to get started.

Are You Googling Yourself ......You Should Be Why would anyone want to "Google" themselves? Yes I am using Google as a verb and I Google myself weekly if not daily. Plus I add words like Realtor, the city I work in and anything else that seems appropriate. The more I Google my name, the higher on the search engines it will go. Words to Google with your name: Realtor Real Estate Agent ActiveRain Homes Homes in (your city or community) real estate short sales Do you want yourself to stand out from the crowd? Do you have a common name? There are things you can do to stand out from others like dropping a letter in your name or just adding your middle initial. Be consistant though so if you change something, make sure you do it everywhere; Facebook, Blogs, Twitter, Your Web, plus anywhere an...

What.....My Cruise Was Just Canceled This morning I received a text and a message on my cell phone stating our cruise had been canceled. Of course, I thought it was some mistake but in the back of my mind I remembered a blurb on the morning news about a Celebrity ship stuck in port in Ketchikan, Alaska.     Unfortunately, that was my ship which was taking us to Canada and then back down the western coast of the US. I recall many people on the news this morning were upset with another line who didn't give them plenty of notice so I have no complaint as I was notified within 25 days. The photo above, the Millennium ship is the ship that limped to port 9 hours late last night. I would rather cancel than be out in the ocean and have some major power failure. All cruises on the Millennium be...

  Had a talk with a good friend this morning and we were talking about the delicate balance of letting things go, and making things happen/being in control/etc. There is a moment or two in everyone's life (probably several) where you kind of let go of the reins just a little too long.Have you experienced that?When I've done that and get back to picking them back up again and getting busy, I have more insight than before...making it "worth it" for the learning that I received when I was busy doing something else or enjoying something else in my life instead of having to be in control of everything all the time.   Never too late to pick up those reins again and carry on!Have an awesome day!

Why Should You Buy Plants and Flowers at Nurseries I am an avid gardener in my spare time (early morning or late at night) when I am not showing property or going to inspections. I am always buying plants and flowers but many of them die off due to lack of attention but some just are not as healthy. Here is a picture of my favorite two plants in my backyard. It is called a "Mexican Bird of Paradise". It blooms about 8 months of the year and attracts butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds plus it is just a beautiful plant and the flowers last for months before they die off and the new ones are right behind them. So it is pretty continuious for most of the year.     In the fall, the plants are cut down like rosebushes and then in March they start sprouting up. But there is a reason for my pi...

You Want to Put What on my Face.........Facials have Come a Long Way   My daughter treated me to a relaxing facial on Thursday for my upcomimg birthday. It was a nice suprise and I documented it with a few pictures.     When you first arrive, they escort you to the back and they have a relaxing area outside but it was pouring down rain so I chose to sit inside. A sugar cookie and some iced water is refreshing.               They brought a nice warm bowl of foamy water and then added a scented oils. I chose the orange flavor and it smelled like I had just cut open a fresh orange.            I had a lovely facial; cleansing, scented oils and massaging on my neck and shoulders and facial muscles. it was wonderful.                 This is a great way to relax and let the stresses of the wor...

A Baby Bird and a Speckled Egg in a Nest   Today, I stopped by to visit with one of my friends. She had a ladder sitting out on her patio and I asked if she had any repairs going on. No she says but come and see my birds nest. So I got up on the ladder and there was a baby bird waiting for its mother to return. I only had my iPhone so I quickly took a few photos and got down off the ladder. It was hard to get the head shot but you can see the eye in the top of the picture. The bird was about the size of a small tangerine so I think it might be ready to fly soon.     There were 2 eggs but one didn't hatch so here is a pretty good shot of the speckled egg in the nest. Thanks for Reading my Blog     California is a dream-come-true state no matter what your needs or wants are. We have year ...

Have You Seen A Blue Bug w/ Spots....I Want to Be the Bug in Your Area Branding is so Important to be Recognized     Branding is so important and we as real estate agents must continue to do so to stay successful in this ever changing world. Recognition- When I saw this cute little VW Bug stop in front of me and park, I immediately thought of the recognition of this car. No matter what country in this world you happen to be in, most people will recognize this car. Old or new, this cute little car reminds me of growing up, hearing this car make a cute noise with its air cooled engine and seeing that it was trying to keep up with the rest of the cars on the road. Persistence- Another feature about the bug is that it just keeps on going plus it has not changed much since the first one in 1...

  Sometimes a New Bed Can Really Change a Room         I have had this bed for for 4 years and before that it was my mother's bed for at least 50 years. It is solid brass and pretty but I just decided I wanted a different look and a new comforter set in lighter colors.         So I ordered this bed from a major furniture store and they said it would be delivered in 2 weeks and the truck would call and schedule delivery. The good news was that they did not charge to ship it and had free delivery.  So 3 days later, Fed Ex knocked on the door and had the bed on their truck in 3 thin long boxes. I was not home so when I got home and realized it was not set up in the bedroom, I was disappointed. I realize now I did not hear the words "Delivery and Set-Up".             Setting up the bed was ...

American Independence-It Started Here 237 Years Ago                       Everytime I visited Philadelphia, PA, I am amazed at how beautifully maintained the Indepence Hall and all the other buildings are. It makes me so proud to be an American when I stand where my forefathers did as they discussed the drafting the Declaration of Independence and later signed the document.                                    And Betsy Ross who sewed the first American flag lived down this path in a cute brick house.                           They have daily tours and I always go early to beat the heat and the crowds. It is such a popular place for tourists from all over the worldThis is the room where our forefathers sat and argued over the wording of the Declaration of Independence.     Did they know h...
