 Last week I got a great phone call.  Damon and Heidi had decided to move back home to Eureka, California and wanted to sell their home…fast.  They contacted their former Realtor, Danni, who is now a lender.  Danni was thrilled because she knew I was already working with a buyer that wanted a hom...
 You Can’t Get There From Here!  This is a common joke when someone asks for directions.  As a patrol officer, I would use this joke to effectively relieve the tension in a lost motorist who was completely frustrated and asking me for directions.  It always worked well.  How do I get to Disneylan...
This is a story of installing an attic fan.  During a home inspection last week, we came across this attic fan.  I'm getting ahead of myself. In the kitchen, we noted the bad install of the microwave oven.  Whomever did it, did not know what they were doing.  We didn't think about the missing ran...

This may be one of the most popular urban legends in CA real estate: Does California Require a Termite Inspection? The short answer is "No." I just got a text from a client who is in escrow to buy a home in Orange.  We had their property inspection earlier today.  He wanted a referral for a termi...
 Out of Hibernation / Time to Feast “You’re back Vic!” – That’s a phrase I have heard many times in the last few months.  “It’s good to have you back!”,  “I missed you!”.  It made me realize that I have apparently been in hibernation.  Growing up in Alaska; I am very familiar with the hungry eati...
