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

Chat Help with Technology

Chat Help with Technology

Chat help with technology is so disappointing and frustrating. Elizabeth and I use different computers. Elizabeth is a Mac user, and I’m a hardcore Windows gal. My desktop hard drive was full at 1TB capacity. The cloud-based program we use to share files and folders had an error message. Elizabeth patiently tried to help me. My Windows system is so different from Apple. To me, it is like trying to speak a foreign language without a translator.

I decided to go back to the program’s chat support for the second time. Three hours later, after deleting the program and reloading it, the same issue presented itself again. I asked for a level two technician. My chat person said that it needed to go to the team that deals with these issues. Of course, they never showed back up. I spent over 3 hours online with chat support. read more

Should You Think Twice Before Leasing Solar Equipment?

Leasing Solar Equipment

Before leasing solar equipment, should you think twice? Do you plan to sell your home in the next several years? Then think twice before leasing solar equipment. Here in California, where the sun shines most of the time, it seems wise to take advantage of the sun to power the lights and systems in our homes. And of course, going solar is the “green” thing to do. However, before leasing solar equipment, read the lease terms carefully. In addition to looking at the monthly lease payment compare it to how much you would expect to save on your power bills. read more

Blogging From My New Command Center

blogging from my command center

Blogging from my new command center, I feel a bit like the Captain of the USS Enterprise. Beam me up, Scotty! With my new 42-inch monitor, I can view multiple screens open while I’m uploading photos, researching links, and writing — all at the same time. As if that isn’t enough, I also have my laptop on my desk, so I can also work on my email. Whoa, talk about multi-tasking! This is just so awesome.

Blogging at my new command center is just a part of what I can do using this 42 inch monitor. I can now write contracts, have MLS open, keep my eye on email, and watch our Sacramento real estate ads on social media. This not only saves time, it creates more efficiency in my task schedule. Thinking over each day, jotting down a few blog ideas, and taking photos of our daily work adventures, reminds me how much our team does as a collective, each day, for our clients. read more
