Real estate license, was written by Elizabeth, for another website about a decade ago. That got me to thinking about when I first obtained my original license, in about 1980. That was almost four decades ago, so a really long time ago, lol. Enjoy the article. It is as relevant today as it was when written. Many people see my name tag, especially at the grocery store. They ask me about our licensing requirements. This post below beautifully illustrates the answers.

” I’m working on an article about real estate agents who leave the business or, for whatever reason, decide they can’t make it in real estate. I’m suspecting that last year’s fallout numbers will not even come close to this year’s attrition figures. Which in many ways is a good thing because it weeds out the ineffective and non-producers.
Garage clean up days in Sacramento county are exhausting, to say the least. My sister Cathie, and brother-in-law, Greg, worked all day yesterday taking everything out of our garage and piling it all onto the driveway. They cleaned the interior floor, dusted and mopped, then took down cobwebs. I had multiple real estate appointments yesterday, so when I arrived home at 8:00 PM, the front blacktop was covered with stuff. The picture above is after two days of cleaning, purging, recycling and shredding.
Wondering how to cancel a listing or purchase contract? Below is a previous post on another site written by partner Elizabeth Weintraub. What is so interesting — it’s as relevant today as when written, more than a decade ago. These questions are asked often by the public when visiting our website about: Sacramento Real Estate.
“It’s too bad that you can’t just rip up a contract to terminate an association or an agreement, but that’s not how it works. To find out if your contract can be canceled, the first step to take is to read the contract. Contracts typically contain a provision for cancellation.
Classic Land Park Tudor homes are unlike any other — in my book, anyway. The charm and original touches take you back in time. Today, I was working in Land Park on a new listing by the Tower Theater. Carol Crestelo, one of our exclusive buyers’ agents, was accompanying me as we had a lot of work in the area.
While driving along the tree-lined streets, we noticed an open house sign. It was an old friend from a previous brokerage, holding open a fabulous classic Land Park Tudor home. We stopped to say hello of course, after all, we are Realtors, we love looking at homes too, lol. This property did not disappoint; it was amazing. The front yard was massive, with a huge redwood tree and mature landscape. The pitched roof in the front was impressive.
When you sit down, finding the words to write a blog entails finding something that seems interesting to you. When I’m interested in a topic the words come easily. Do you know exactly what you are going to say or do you wing it? Some people, I hear, prepare an outline, spread out Post-It notes, open related books to bookmarked pages, scour the Internet for fact-checking and even then, they face a blank screen with a blinking mouse.
I find my best writing comes when I let my fingers do the typing. If I give a topic too much thought, I might never write it. So, I let the words fall where they may because I can always go back and clean them up later. You know, to write a blog always remove all the profanity. 🙂 Just kidding!
