What happens to the house with the loss of a spouse? Here are a few different situations. -An older man lost his wife a few weeks earlier. He would not go back into his property and wanted it on the market now!  He did not feel the house was his home without her. Asking more questions, he told me he was staying in a rental and could not sleep in the house.  We did sell it to a young couple, blissfully in love, and that is what the seller wanted, someone in love to love his place.  Hearing who was buying, he sweetened the deal to afford the house comfortably. - For others, when losing a partner, they don’t want to leave the house. They want to stay in familiar/comfortable surroundings. Some suggest waiting at least a year to make a move. Sometimes the luxury of remaining is not possible....

Palos Verdes News UPDATE Toll Brothers Rolling Hills Country Club | Chadmar Sold Out & Alternatives Palos Verdes News UPDATE Toll Brothers Rolling Hills Country Club | Chadmar Sold Out & Alternatives It's true... the new home developments for Toll Brothers and also Chadmar are sold out! If you're interested in buying there, that means you have two options: 1) wait for a new buyer to want to sell some day, or 2) be ready if one of the buyers backs out of their purchase and one of the homes still being built goes back on the market ("falls out of escrow"). If you want to be on my list to notify of homes coming on the market for the RHCC, please send me an email or text. Meanwhile, you might want to take a look my prior video about RHCC and buying a new home from a builder. Thank you, Lisa...

United States Tax Court Donna M. Sutherland (Petitioner) v. Commissioner of Internal Revenue (Respondent)T.C. Memo. 2021-110 Filed September 16, 2021 In a recent case US Tax Court case, a petition by a wife for relief from joint and several liability regarding a federal income tax liability was denied.  The wife worked on and off for her husband's business over a span of many years although she was not a formal employee. She handled various responsibilities including bookkeeping. In addition, she often took care of the employment taxes related to the business' workers.  The IRS selected the couple's Married Filing Jointly (MFJ) federal income tax returns for 2003 and 2004 for audit. The husband had withheld employment taxes from employee paychecks but did not remit them to the IRS. Addi...

  We hear of millions of people experiencing depression, suicide levels are off the charts, today having lunch with a friend of over twenty-five years, he said his son in law who is a teacher was locked down this week in a classroom for over an hour with his students, someone threatening with a gun. Another school had a bomb threat and students were bussed to another school, all of this in one city near Phoenix.   In addition to some prayer, focus on God, why not begin in the middle of the week, at least no later than Friday to plan out your next week. IMAGINE! What you can accomplish this by just taking two minutes, seven minutes, one minute, throughout Thursday, Friday, Saturday to layout the almost perfect week for yourself in the upcoming week.  Block out time to read, time to just ...

National Jelly Roll DayFor most people, a Jelly Roll is a thin layer of cake with jelly and cream filling rolled up into a sweet treat!!  However, I'm a quilter and for those quilters in the world, a Jelly Roll could very well be a sweet treat of another sort.  For us, a jelly roll is a roll of fabric that is comprised of 40-42 2.5" strips by the width of fabric (40-44") rolled into a Jelly Roll.  Many fabric manufacturers will take 2 or 3 pieces of each fabric in a line and make a Jelly Roll out of them.  Designers have been designing quilts and accessory patterns exclusively to be used for Jelly Rolls and companies like Missouri Star Quilt Company or Jordan Fabrics have many online tutorials on how to use them too.  I was at my local quilt shop, Bear's Paw Fabrics, this morning and th...

There are a lot of reasons to keep client relationships aliveI'm a firm believer in keeping and developing relationships with current and past clients. Obviously past clients can be a great resource for new clients. If you've been in the business for a while, you've probably had the pleasure of a referral from a previous client. It makes you feel great knowing your past clients enjoyed their experience enough to tell others. I generally enjoy my past clients and I do like to catch up with them periodically, but there are more reasons to stay in touch. This past week my wife and I were at dinner when a friend of hers sent her a note saying that the her husband lost his job. She was just asking for prayer and really just looking for a little encouragement. I asked what does he do? My wife...
