November's Numbers for Elk Grove, CAOur average price for homes last month was up a bit month over month and year over year.  At first, it looks like we have reversed our trend of declining prices.  We may have, but there is a bit more to the story.  The average size of homes sold last month was ...

Runnin for Rhett's inaugural Farm to Fort event was held last night.  The event featured numerous local restaurants serving tasty bites of their fair along with samples of local wine, beer and spirits.  Historic Sutter's Fort was the perfect cozy venue to enjoy the delightful fall evening and the...
A bunch of my Runnin for Rhett buddies and I play pickleball every Friday evening, then we all head over for pizza and beer.  The social side of pickleball is one of the great attributes of the game.   You may have noticed that Brian England and I have had a friendly debate on some of those attri...
