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

Is Team Roping a Hobby?

Team Roping a Hobby

Is team roping a hobby to some or is it a second career to others? This photo is a picture of my son, J.T. Bradley, roping the horns of the steer; he is called the header. The heeler lassos the two hind feet (hooves). This is a timed event. If the heeler only ropes one hoof, a 5-point penalty is issued. Now each rider has a score, based on skill level. The teams are put together by a combined score. You always are not roping with the same partner; this depends on if your attempt received a score. If the team fails no score for the attempt. read more

Saturday Showing Rural Property In South County

Showing Rural Property

Saturday showing of a rural property in the south part of the county was so much fun. The property was gated. What a grand estate with so many tees. When you drive up to a gated entry it feels like you are in another world. The entrance goes up a winding driveway, such a beautiful property. Try to imagine yourself living here, this is what I do on every property visit.

Today, I drove the buyer’s family back on the gator to the Consumnes River. All along the trail were grapes growing. It was a picture perfect day. They seemed very interested in the land. There is river access created by a recorded easement. This is one property you will want to see. read more

Elk Grove Ranch With A Lake Is But A Dream

Elk Grove Ranch

This Elk Grove ranch with a lake is but a dream property for one lucky buyer. This photo is of the pristine lake which has two islands, a boat dock, a walking bridge and a gorgeous giant rock waterfall. There is a walking path all around it and a very zen bench at one end, where you can simply get lost in a daydream. It is located at 8109 Sloughhouse Rd. Elk Grove, Ca. 95624.

The property has the original barn-red colored dairy barn with white trim. There is also a shop that is fully functional for a working ranch. There are three homes on the property as well as many outbuildings. Ownership was reported as being part of the original Spanish Land Grant, so it has historic significance as well. Affectionately named, “Ochenta Robles,” or the translated version is “80 Oak Trees.” There are so many beautiful different types of oak trees scattered about the property. read more

Sloughhouse Rd is a Stunning Place in Elk Grove

Sloughhouse Rd has a stunning Lake located in Elk Grove

This is a very special place where everyone that visits says 8109 Sloughhouse Rd is a stunning place in Elk Grove. Its history is a real-life love story. This lake is a symbol of that love. This short story below was told to me by someone who was there and knew these people well but I have not verified it.

There was a couple who were boyfriend and girlfriend for many years. She was a very bright woman who loved birds and orchids. She was a very active person, full of life. Her boyfriend was retired law enforcement whom I think must have had a heart the size of Texas. She had an accident which left her paralyzed. She sustained further injuries and had to be put on a respirator. Her boyfriend married her and they bought this ranch, 80 acres of paradise. He built her a house and created this lake. He dug out the dirt, planted the trees and plants, and he made the lake for her. It has a beautiful footbridge, a walking path, two islands, and a huge rock waterfall. This was important as it was what she would look at each day from her brick patio outside her room. She had to have 24-hour care. read more
