Wells Fargo came through and postponed a foreclosure in Benicia today.  I was on my way up to Placerville to take my father in law to his doctor's appointments when I found out.  We live about 2 hrs away so it is an all day affair.  Today was my day off, snicker, snicker, as if I would take a who...
I am in a Bank of America HAFA Short Sale nightmare and I am still dreaming I will wake up and everything will be just fine. I have hope and eternal optimism, but for today I am venting cuz nothing can be done on a Sunday. I normally love working Bank of America Short Sales. The problem with this...
LBPS short sale nightmare came true this past Monday.  A file we have worked on since January went belly up.  It took til April to get an approval even though all the paperwork was in by the second week of January. We hate to lose and fight like hell to the end. The first buyers did their reports...

Duncan Graham Park in Benicia is a hidden jewel that not many people know about.  It is truly a neighborhood park surrounded by homes built in the 50's and 60's.   The large grassy area is perfect for running and jumping.  Maybe take a blanket and enjoy the sun.  There is a basketball court and p...
Chug, Chug, Chug.......I feel like the engine that could.  I mean I can!  We are almost to the end of May.  I participated in the month long blog challenge last August and this one is even tougher.  I have ideas and thoughts twirling around in my head but lack the initiative to put them on paper ...
I can remember several years ago when the foreclosures starting coming out of the woodwork.  My business partner, Jenny, and I decided to go for it.  We did and have been successful with representing the best servicer in the country (in our opinion) Premier Asset Services, which is really Wells F...
