Riverside Plumbing Company Inland Empire Plumbing, a company that services Riverside County and Orange County really helped out some clients of mine who were in a real "Crappy" mess.

Within just an hour, the clogged toliet was flowing perfectly and they even cleaned up the mess.

SHORT SALE HOUSE RIVERSIDE COUNTY CA We have created the Real Estate Short Sale Formula for under-water and distressed homeowners in Riverside County, California. Riverside County has many homes and families facing foreclosure, but they don't know if they would qualify for a short sale of their Riverside County CA home to avoid complete financial devastation. What Does a Real Estate Short Sale Mean for Riverside County CA Homeowners? The definition of a real estate short sale means that the Riverside County CA house is about to be in foreclosure due to the default in payments of the mortgage. The owner of the Riverside County home sells it for less than what they owe for the property. It is far better for their credit to sell it short than to lose the house to foreclosure. But Do I Qual...

Branding Your Business… Cupcakes, Kites, Bugs, Houses?   I read all the time that branding your business online is so important and I agree totally. Recently I have noticed many vehicles out on the road and I think they are doing a pretty good job too. This is my favorite and I have been thinking about eating cupcakes ever since I saw this Hummer!   They were flying a kite at the beach with the business website on it. Great idea!

Why Real Estate….From Deputy Sheriff to Realtor in One Exciting Move   Born at March Air Force Base in Riverside, CA, graduated from Ramona High School & University of California Riverside and have lived in the Inland Empire all my life. I went to work for the county as soon as I graduated from college. I had a great and exciting career but just felt like something was missing? I had worked for the San Bernardino County for 28 years. Great job but was impossible to get time off; never got to go see my daughter play sports or school field trips. I couldn’t take off to take my mother to doctor’s appointments so several times she had to take a taxi. It was an impossible situation and I was unhappy. So one day I met a real estate agent and she said, “Sign up, get the books, study and take t...

  Barbecuing with our New Steamer Pot       My husband loves to barbecue at least 4-5 times a week. We usually grill fish outside so we do not have any fishy smells inside the house. We decided we should buy a steamer pot that we could use on the barbecue.                 So after searching for a couple of weeks, we finally found the perfect steamer. So we stopped by the store and bought fresh scallops and I cooked some rice.               Oh no....forgot to buy asparagus or broccoli so next time I shop I will pick the veggies up.               But it was still a wonderful dinner.             And then we stepped out for a date and had a drink or two. It was a nice Saturday night.                 California is a dream come true state no matter what your needs or wants are. We have year r...
