Tri-Level Carmichael Pool Home in Del Dayo Now Pending

home in del Dayo

When I first spoke with the seller of this home in Del Dayo, I was working from our house in Hawaii. While I had her on the phone, I pulled up the previous photos in MLS to discuss. While the home was in OK condition when she bought it, there were a few things that the seller needed to change to attract today’s buyers. I gave her a list of those improvements and then introduced her to my preferred home stager. It was better for her to have an expert stager at the house giving her sage advice as well. read more

Not Quite the Fourth of July Open Houses for 2018

not quite the fourth of july open houses

Before I talk about our not quite the fourth of July open houses for this year, please note the lovely photo of Compass Box The Circus Blended Scotch Whiskey. This was my dessert after dinner at Canon in East Sacramento on Thursday for my non-retirement birthday. I imagine it wasn’t cheap but I wouldn’t know since my husband treated. This is a limited edition, fewer than 2,500 bottles released in 2016.

He also gave me a Series 3 Apple Watch, which means I can now wander away from my phone, far, far away, because the new watches run on cell coverage. I suppose you have to be careful if you wear one of those into a medical marijuana dispensary because you’re probably not supposed to. Not that I have any first hand experience, mind you, just putting out my public notice to everybody. read more

Luxury Home on Del Dayo Drive in Del Dayo Estates, Carmichael

luxury home on del dayo drive

To say I connected with this luxury home on Del Dayo Drive in Del Dayo Estates is an understatement. This was a case of mad love at first sight. It will happen that way for a buyer as well. The home spoke volumes to me before I ever set foot inside. It was the end of March when the seller contacted me about fixing up her home in Carmichael, and I happened to be physically in Hawaii when that call came in. Just like I am now, btw, when this home hit the Sacramento market last night.

Full circle. Definitely in the zone in Hawaii. Feeling the Aloha. Nothing touches me here like real estate in Sacramento and delivers such joy. OK, maybe paddle boarding. Point is, no suffering of fools in the islands. It’s a place to kick jackasses to the curb. Such a wonderful state of mind, and I am so damn lucky to have perfected being a listing specialist. And, I should mention, to marry that fortune with the good sense to buy a house in Hawaii. read more

The Sacramento Story of Closing Two Houses on a Lot

Two houses on a lot in carmichaelWhen escrows close like this recent closing two houses on a lot, I like to review the transaction for closure and for learning purposes. Even though I have been in the real estate business since the 1970s, I still learn something new almost every day. In the 15 years that I’ve worked in Sacramento, and yes, I just passed my 15th anniversary at Lyon Real Estate, I’ve most likely sold more than 1,000 properties.  Never added up all my sales. Do not look in the rearview mirror much. read more

Carmichael Storybook Cottage for Sale Will Blow Your Mind

carmichael storybook cottage

OK, I realize almost every Carmichael agent believes she has listed a Carmichael storybook cottage for sale that is unique and special. But most of those agents are just blowing smoke. Aren’t you bored, bored, bored by emails proclaiming smashing homes or stunning showplaces, when they are really just grotesque cookie-cutter homes? How many fake fireplaces built inside a fake fireplace and pretentious Grecian columns can one person really take? But I will eat my socks if you don’t adore this Carmichael storybook cottage for sale. read more
