If you asked a hundred different FHA 203k consultants you may get as many different answers. How can that be? It is easy if you look at your own business, there are many people who do what you do, some do it better than you and some do it like you do, and yet others seem to do nothing. It is the same in the business of FHA 203k consultants. Our slogan is "Providing more than you expect" and we take it seriously. Not all consultants actually "consult". We do I had a long time 203k consultant call me one day and ask if we would discount our software as she didn't need all the forms we provide our clients.. after thinking this over for a few seconds I suggested that if the other software choice does what she wants then she should go with it as we aren't interested in being associated with ...

Lowe's Home Improvement Store in Vallejo is OPEN for business. Finally it is here and ready to serve Vallejo and its surrounding communities.  I live in Benicia and this is a hop, skip and a jump for me to get to.  There is easy access from Columbus Parkway and a quick hop to HWY 80.  This is heaven on earth to get a Lowe's so close by for many of us who are "love to shop at home improvement stores kinda people". Now when the sale flyers come out I can make sure I get there quickly for the best selection.  I have always admired Lowe's garden shop.  The flowers and plants are so fresh and vibrant in color.  And most important I have never had to hunt a customer service person down!  There is always someone close by ready to answer questions and help me.

This past weekend while doing some shopping at Safeway in Glen Cove, the Veteran Association was collecting money and giving away the red poppies.  I can remember my dad proudly wearing the poppy when I was a child in London, Ohio.  I was always intrigued by the paper flower. So I gladly opened my pockets and gave some money to the Veteran.  Every Veteran who volunteers to do this stands proud and humbly asks for donations.  My dad was a WWII Veteran and was very proud to serve his country.  We never got tired of his stories.  He made lifelong friends that up until the day he died, he communicated with.  When he passed away three years ago the letters sent by some of his "old buddies" made us cry.  They told adventures my dad and friends had in Europe and the continued friendship that s...

We were doing a 203k loan consultation the other day and low and behold we met the nicest couple who turned out to be the owners of Zio Fraedo's Italian & Continental Restaurant in Vallejo what a small world. I lived in Pleasant Hill for my last year in high school and a couple years there after and the branch of Zio Fradeo's was a regular stopping place for nice dinners out with your best girl.  About a year ago, wow how time flies when you are having fun. Anyway, a friend of mine "Danny N." called me up for lunch and since he lived in Martinez we met at Zio Fraedo's for lunch on a Friday. It turns out in Pleasant Hill they have their famous Clam Chowder only on Fridays. Well, let me tell you that the Vallejo branch has it every day and it is worth the trip. The Pleasant Hill restauran...

The Taste of Home Cooking School and Food Expo is coming to Vallejo, CA November 4th.  It will take place at the Solano County Fairgrounds off I80.   My husband even said he might go with me.  I have enjoyed the Taste of Home magazines for years and discovered instead of the magazines, I can get the yearly hard covered recipe book that features the recipes from the magazines for that year.  These are much easier to store than the magazines.  I have found the recipes to be easy to prepare and oh so good!  My parents got me hooked on Taste of Home over 20 years ago.  I would say most of the recipes evoke memories of comfort food and the contributors are mostly from the Midwest.  Now there is the chance to go to the Taste of Home Cooking School that only comes once a year to our area.  In ...

IF you live in Hiddenbrooke, a gorgeous neighborhood in Vallejo,CA and have a Bank of America Mortgage and you are in the foreclosure process, did you know BofA has halted all foreclosures? in all 50 states?  Some of the other big name banks, like Chase and GMAC, have halted foreclosing on delinquent homeowners in 23 states but not expanded to Hiddenbrooke Vallejo, CA...yet. What does this mean to you?  With a halt in this process you might have an opportunity to get out from under the mortgage debt by short selling your home.  You might have thought there is nothing more I can do, "just let the home go back to the bank."  Foreclosure damages your credit and damages it for a longer period of time than a short sale. Why not find out what it would mean to short sale your Hiddenbrooke home...

Why women are falling victims to the housing market-HIDDENBROOKE REAL ESTATE Short sale or walk away? Women are among those most affected by the housing crisis. I estimate that 75 percent of my clients are women who are the only mortgage holder on their home. The remaining 25 percent are couples.  Most of my clients are professional women who were recently laid off or unexpectedly separated from a partner and are having trouble making their mortgage payments.  I see a lot of situations where a couple's relationship suffers because of economic issues, and married couples may even go through divorces. Lately I've had a lot of women coming to me and asking for help. Alternatives to foreclosure I want my clients to know there are alternatives to foreclosure. If you want to stay in the home,...
