It’s Groundhog Day…thank you, Bill Murray!
At the risk of sounding like a broken record (and taking a cue from the movie Groundhog Day), there simply isn’t a better way to introduce this, than to repeat myself…so bear with me!
“Wow, life’s been a bit of a whirlwind lately…which should come as no surprise to any of you; since I haven’t updated this blog since July October! I know, I’m not supposed to say that (just in case someone stumbles upon my website for the first time…I’m supposed to make them think this is a regular occurrence!), but that’s a risk I’m willing to take. I’ve built my business working with the most fabulous clients in the world, and almost exclusively by referral. Thank you, thank you, thank you…and please keep them coming. I promise to continue to take great care of whomever you entrust to my care.” “Since July October… [copied from blog entry dated 10/29/10]
It’s true, “Since July October,” my world turned upside down! And not simply due to the unrest in our economy and the effect that it has had on the real estate market…which has made my job very interesting by the way! There is little dispute among the general public that Realtors are a necessary commodity in navigating their way through the “mess (and opportunity) of real estate!”

Sacramento’s 4th Annual Wine & Dine Week is in full swing! This week only, restaurants in Sacramento, Davis, El Dorado Hills, Folsom, Granite Bay, Plymouth, Rancho Cordova, Roseville and Woodland offer a three to four course meal at a fraction of the regular price.

The first quarter of 2010 has come and gone and I for one am happy to see it go. This first quarter was dismal for our local real estate market. In March, the Sacramento Bee branded the start of 2010 as “real estate’s long slow winter.” But Spring is finally here and we are beginning to see its rejuvinating effects everywhere.

Easter weekend is quickly approaching and, even though all of my kids are now in their twenties, we continue to celebrate Easter as a family. I love our Easter traditions, everything from preparing the kids’ Easter baskets to decorating eggs (yes, they still humor me) to eating a delicious meal with the whole family.
Our communities have many Easter traditions too. There are several annual egg hunts and celebrations that are a lot of fun for the whole family. Here are just a few:
