“Years ago, when I was buying a home in Land Park, Sacramento, and in the process of moving from Minneapolis, I had hired a real estate agent who rarely communicated with me. I would email her and she would not respond. I would leave her voice mails and she would not return my phone calls. Being several thousand miles away and trying to close a real estate deal was stressful enough, but working with an agent whose communication skills were sorely lacking was even more frustrating. It’s not the way I choose to do business.
The last Sacramento Sunday in June is fast approaching. The summer weather is upon us, and with it comes the constant need for air conditioning. The vegetable gardens are now in full swing after a slow start. A summer real estate market is bustling, and there are some excellent properties available.
This is a perfect time to list your home. The sky photographs so beautifully blue with the bright sun. The flowers are budding in brilliant colors, and the pastures have turned into fields of honey wheat. The photographs of the new listings are stunning, but then that’s another blog. A Sacramento Sunday is always busy with open houses, presenting offers, emails, phone calls and marketing. As one week closes a new one begins and there is such excitement looking forward to the possibilities of the new week.

Many things, as it turns out. The most basic and most wanted features are whole house WiFi, wireless security systems, programmable thermostats, lighting control systems, wireless home audio systems, and multi-zone HVAC systems.
Is your Sacramento Realtor like a SMART TV? Well, a smart tv knows its job. You can ask it to respond to your requests. It will learn the things you like and suggest other items of interest. You can rely on your smart TV to offer you endless smart options when you ask questions. If you ask your TV to recommend comedy movies, up comes a list. Ask it to save you time by recording programs you enjoy and immediately your request is granted.
Does your Realtor know her job? Can she respond to your requests with competency? Does she learn the things you like in a home and does she suggest other qualities in a home that you might like? Can you ask your Realtor endless questions and she provides you smart answers? These very basic and necessary abilities are what’s expected of a smart TV, a robot and indeed of your Sacramento Realtor.
Cleaning swimming pools on Father’s Day is not what most peoples’ idea of a celebration is. Well, if you are my sister, Cathie, then it is because she is determined at whatever she commits to doing. That is Cathie in the photo above.
She was working away cleaning the swimming pool to be ready for the grandkids to enjoy it this summer. My brother-in-law Greg was working on fixing fence and doors, as well as tending to the garden and fixing the dog house. Cathie and Greg are both licensed Realtors as well. It was a family affair as we all had jobs to do on this Father’s Day.
