Among the many honors, this Certified Probate Real Estate Specialist receives, is a referral from an attorney.  In this case, the referral came from a real estate attorney, not an estate planning or probate attorney which is where Kathleen Daniels receives most probate real estate and trust property referrals.   A past client of the real estate attorney was so confused by all the information real estate agents were telling them their head was spinning.  Trusting the real estate attorney who helped them in the past, they scheduled an appointment with the attorney to get a sanity check.      That is when my phone rang, and I answered it. The conversation that followed was interesting, to say the least. His client was the successor trustee of her sister's trust. Many agents were interviewe...

 Jeff Dowler is hosting a November 2020 ActiveRain Challenge asking us to share at least 5 or more things we are thankful for. It can be business, personal, anything we want!   The Gift of my Mother. No words can truly describe the gift my mother gave me when she left me in control of managing her care. Prior to taking on that responsibility, I believed that raising a child was the hardest job on earth. Raising my son was a cakewalk compared to managing my mother’s care and caring for my Mother.  It never occurred to me that the day would come when I would be caring for my mother in many of the same ways I cared for my son. I knew the road my mother was on was a road traveling in a different direction. I knew someday it would be the end of the road for her.  To honor my mother's wishes,...

I am working on a construction project in downtown San Jose and I took these top 3 photos yesterday during break.It was terrible and the air quality from all the fires in San Jose October 2 - 2020 was approx 165, which is dangerous. Most of this week my throat has been scratchy, along with headaches and slite heart pain.When I went out this morning at 8:00am this is what the sun looked like with no photo enhancement ...It is suppose to cool down later next week so this may help contain and slow down the spead of all the fires going on in Northern California.

Ideal air quality should be relatively low like 50-100 for most people.  However, many areas are closer to 200-300 which residents should be indoor running air cleaner to get rid of CO2 fume and burning ashes. At this time we ask for your prayers as nothing is under control.
