 New Laws to Deal with Tweets, Texts, and Emails for Real Estate    ("CalBRE") requires brokers to maintain records of their licensed real estate activity. CalBRE specifies which records to maintain, how long they must be maintained and the formats in which they may be maintained. It is important for REALTORS® to comply with the record retention rules in case of a CalBRE audit or CalBRE investigation.

Throwback Thursday- 8th Grade School Picture that Seems Like Yesterday     This picture was taken at Chemawa Junior High School, Riverside CA when I was in the 8th grade.   I especially like how the haircut was uneven.

Have You Heard About the Facebook Cop in Menlo Park Facebook is moving their headquarters to Menlo Park, CA and so a few months ago they went to the Menlo Park Police Department and agreed to pay $194,000 for 3 years to pay for a police offer to handle 'At Risk Youths' and serve the local residents in this area.   Mary Ferguson, an 8 year Veteran on the force, will assist the local schools when youths fail to show up for long periods of time. When they locate the kids, they are taken back to school immediately. This is a 3 year contract to better the community and get their  kids back on track.   Facebook also donated funds to get the Menlo Park Sub-Station in the mall re-opened.

New California License Plates CALIFORNIA PET LOVER’S LICENSE PLATE Pre-orders are being taken for the new California Pet Lover’s License Plate designed by actor/artist Pierce Brosnan and sponsored by the California Veterinary Medical Board. This fun and colorful plate will not only jazz up your car—it will also help reduce the number of homeless pets in California! Proceeds from sales of the license plate will go toward funding for free or low-cost spay and neuter surgeries throughout the state, and the plates themselves are a great way to raise awareness about the importance of spaying and neutering while you’re on the go. The California Department of Motor Vehicles won’t begin production of these plates until it has received 7,500 orders—so far, approximately 3,850 orders have been re...

It All Began Here in Independence Hall, Philadelphia Pennsylvania July 4, 1776 our Declaration was Signed   Did you know that President Adams believed that Independence Day should be celebrated on July 2nd—the day our forefathers voted to declare independence from Great Britain—instead of July 4th, the day the Declaration of Independence was actually signed.    John Adams, the second President of the United States, believed that Independence Day should be "solemnized with pomp and parade" for generations to come! We celebrate with parades and fireworks to remember the day we gained our nation's independence. These are pictures I took in Philadelphia, PA and it was an inspirational event to see where our forefathers argued, made decisions, signed documents and where people lived like Bet...

Nakedness and Real Estate Should Not Mix I have heard stories and seen news blurbs on TV about embarrassing moments in listed homes for sale but in the past couple of years I have seen it in person. The first time it occurred I was showing a commercial office to a client and we were given the lockbox code and assured that we could inspect the entire office space. I opened the door and there were no lights on but I thought I heard something. I commented "Big Rats". So we starting walking through the rooms and the one on the right was locked. Interesting as the listing agent said it was open! So we continued on and went through all the rooms which took us back to the front near the door. My client says "Oh look, that locked door is now open." So we walked in and there in the middle of thi...

Celebrate Flag Day and Remember the History of "The Star Spangled Banner" Happy Flag Day Today is the day to fly your flag to commemorate Flag Day and to remember the meaning of the words of our national anthem "The Star-Spangled Banner" written by Francis Scott Key. On August 24, 1814, The British military had burned the United States Capitol and White House. Americans feared the British would succeed and force the US to become a part of England again. Francis Scott Key's friend, Doctor  William Beanes, had been captured by the British and Key decided to try to get him released. After gaining permission from President James Madison, he set out on a boat with John Skinner, the Prisoner of War negotiator. They found the fleet and boarded the ship to negotiate the release. The British mad...

Throwback Thursdays- Sharing Pictures of My Cousin Ron and I with his Pet Rooster         My cousin Ron says this was taken at their old ranch house where he lived with his mother in Lancaster, CA before he started kindergarten. My cousin would have been about 4 years old, and I was maybe 3 years old. Looking at our coats and hats, it was probably winter. Looks like I had a stuffed lamb sitting there...but do not remember it.                   The second picture was taken the same afternoon. Ron was holding his big red rooster that they kept as a pet. He said the only chicken name he knew at that age was "Henny Penny," so that was what we called it, although it was a ROOSTER. His mom told him that the rooster used to walk right up under her bedroom window every morning, and wake her up ...
