My Sellers Are In Europe Using WhatsApp To Close Escrow

Using WhatsApp To Close Escrow

My sellers are in Europe using the WhatsApp. They tried several times to sign documents by email. The iPhones are not working there well except when using the WhatsApp. The property located at 8109 Sloughhouse Road in Elk Grove, CA 95624, was all set to close escrow, or so we thought. Before the sellers left for an extended vacation to Europe, we signed everything at the title company, and we checked in with the buyer’s side for any additional documents. They said nope all good on their end. read more

Closing Escrows In Rural Elk Grove, South County of Sacramento

Closing Escrows In Rural Elk Grove

Closing escrows in rural Elk Grove, the southern part of Sacramento County, is one of my favorite places for selling real estate. There are many aspects to rural sales such as there are several environmental issues to be aware of. Be aware of the utility easements for power. The fire department has access as well. There are some areas of flooding to be aware of. Lenders have federal requirements for flood insurance certificates. Of course, if you buy with cash no insurance is required, but use common sense as flooding repairs can be costly. read more

Being Named A Successor Trustee As A Professional Fiduciary

Professional Fiduciary

Being named a successor trustee as a Professional Fiduciary is a seriously responsible job. What made me think of this is I work with Professional Fiduciaries. They represent people who need representation as they don’t have a family member or a friend they trust enough to take the job. Often, they have no family.  

A Professional Fiduciary gets paid, of course. They go to doctors’ appointments, hospital stays, pick up prescriptions. They even purchase memory foam mattresses to keep their clients more comfortable. It is not inexpensive to have professional care, but it is a lot less than going into a care facility. Professional Fiduciary cases often prolong independent living in most cases. read more

Looking For a Dream Home Can Be Like Finding A Lost Hearing Aid

Looking For a Dream Home Can Be Like Finding A Lost Hearing Aid.

Looking for a dream home can be like finding a lost hearing aid. My mom is here in Wilton with me for a few days every other week. She helps so much with all the animals, she does my laundry, cleans cat boxes. She loves her children so much. At 83, she is a machine. I often have to say, “Mom, it’s 2 AM, let’s go to sleep as I have to work tomorrow,” lol, it is true. She will be moping the floor and I say: “Mom, it’s midnight, why are you moping?” The answer is so she has a head start tomorrow. I hope at 83 I’m half as tough as she. read more

How To Have A New Smile In One Day

How To Have A New Smile In One Day

How to have a new smile in one day? Well, when we sell a house in Sacramento, the seller has a huge smile, but that’s not the smile I’m referring to. While watching a TV show on botched cosmetic surgery, I saw a segment on cosmetic dentistry. What was mind-blowing was a gentleman featured who had been through several dental surgeries gone wrong. One of several issues, his dental implants were not screwed into the bone; he sought answers in the UK.

The amazing surgeons, doctors Anthony and Michael Zabutz of the Smile In A Day Dental Centers, are brothers. They are located in Petersborough and Folkstone, UK. The first surgeon did the demolition of the patient’s existing teeth and the other installed the new teeth. In under 12 hours, this patient had a new smile in one day. It was amazing to watch. I can’t imagine what it costs, but the patient walked out with a new set of uppers and lowers set in permanently using titanium screws. read more
