Wilton Fundraiser for Mini Therapy Horses

Wilton Fundraiser

Wilton fundraiser for mini therapy horses today, was a huge success. About 250 people attended a huge raffle including an awesome barbecue dinner. Mini horses are about 30 inches or smaller when full grown and very social animals. My friends Lisa and Ken started a program with Sutter and UC Davis hospitals to bring their mini therapy horses into hospitals.

The people in the hospitals have a big smile when these horses come into the hospitals. They live in a beautiful new barn custom built, located off Alta Mesa Rd. I sold them this rural property on 5 acres, a few years ago. It has been amazing to watch the property evolve into a paradise for people and horses. read more

Some Realtors Do Not Follow Up With Other Sacramento Realtors

It is always a surprise to me when some Realtors do not follow up with other Sacramento Realtors. One example of this was a recent sale of a condo to a lovely young couple. The lockbox on this condo, which we had used for entry, was located on the front door. Nothing was ever said by the listing agent that the lockbox belonged to someone else before we closed.

I called the listing Realtor after closing as she had not removed the lock box. It was still on the front door! Here is the challenge: the listing agent said it is not her lockbox! Well, it was on the front door of her listing. Why didn’t she get it removed? Why did it become our problem? She said the agent who owns the lockbox is ignoring her calls and texts. Of course now it falls on us to get it removed one way or the other. When some Realtors do not follow up with other Sacramento Realtors, it results in a sure-fire way to cause frustration for everyone in a transaction. read more

Buying Another Computer at Best Buy

buying another computer at best buy

Buying another computer at Best Buy has turned into quite a bit of work. This started Tuesday when I took my Dell XPS into the Geek Squad at Best Buy. I dropped it off to check the fan as it was not turning on. They said a few days and I would know the scope of work and have an estimate. Wednesday I received a call that it is not the fan and needed to be sent out as the motherboard was not functioning. Of course, I could not have my computer be out of service that long.

The solution, I decided to buy another computer. A helpful sales clerk walked me around to look at what was in stock. There was a computer that would work, so I bought it on the spot. Then a tech support package was needed so the data could be transferred to the new computer. Tonight another trip back to Best Buy to pick up the new computer! Three trips later and now we are putting the computer up and installing a 40-inch monitor. read more

How Successful Sacramento Realtors Roll with the Flow

Just how do successful Sacramento realtors roll with the flow? Well, everyday living is a good example to answer this question. Work is a part of daily life. Most challenges require problem solving and adapting to change in the middle of unexpected issues and challenges.

Tonight, I was getting ready to work on three market analysis studies and write a blog. Lo and behold, I sat down on my laptop and boom the power is instantly out at 7:30 PM! I am sitting in the dark.  SMUD reports more than 1,000 homes are out of power in my area. My mom is here, and it is dark and the dogs and cats are tearing around underfoot. First things first, the flashlight app on my phone, I turn it on. Next, I suggest my mom stay put, as we do not need her falling! read more
