Several weeks ago my twin daughters came home from Sonoma State University to help with a Girl Scout Function at Benicia's Commandants Residence.  I told them it will be a treat for them to see the home restored to its former glory. This is a majestic home that had gone downhill after a fire in 1979.  I actually remember going to a wedding back then (circa 1978) that was held there.  I remember how beautiful it was and dreamed of living in a place like this.  And dreaming is all I would ever do!! It was not til 1997 that we moved to Benicia, CA.  It was so sad to see the home look unloved and unkempt when we moved here.  However, the City of Benicia rallied and with grants and funds was able to restore the lovely mansion in the past several years. The Commandant's Residenceis explained ...

Benicia Resident ages 54 years in one day! (edit/delete) Benicia Real Estate Agent ages 54 years in one day! Benicia Resident Earl Miller was surprised to find that in the morning of September the 24th he woke up 54 years older in one day. Earl said he woke up and was going to get ready for school and realized he had aged and now was older than all his teachers, parents, and grandparents.  He said he didn't feel much different as all that changed was his physical appearance. He wasn't a day smarter and was still worried about what the girls would think. He still decided to go to school, and went to his father's closet and found some clothes to wear for the day. He was really confused about his desire to wear a Hawaiian shirt, but all that would fit was a black shirt. He headed off to sc...

IF you live in Benicia, CA and have a Bank of America Mortgage and you are in the foreclosure process, did you know BofA has halted all foreclosures? in all 50 states?  Some of the other big name banks, like Chase and GMAC, have halted foreclosing on delinquent homeowners in 23 states but not expanded to Benicia, CA...yet. What does this mean to you?  With a halt in this process you might have an opportunity to get out from under the mortgage debt by short selling your home.  You might have thought there is nothing more I can do, "just let the home go back to the bank."  Foreclosure damages your credit and damages it for a longer period of time than a short sale. Why not find out what it would mean to short sale your Benicia CA home? Speak with an experienced Short Sale Realtor.  In a n...

Recently my business partner, Jenny Castaneda, and I have been fielding questions about Benicia, CA loan modification and short sales. We have counseled clients who are trying to obtain a loan modification and ones who have sent money to a businesses who "tout" they will do your loan modification for you. First off...please know you DO NOT have to pay someone to do a loan modification.  It is not rocket science.  It does take tenacity and resiliency.  There are free counseling services through the government to assist you.  The most cumbersome part is gathering the papers the bank wants to see.  Just like in a Benicia, Ca Short Sale the banks are asking for your latest pay check stubs, most recent bank statements, a completed financial form and a hardship letter. Keep a pad of paper by ...

Why women are falling victims to the housing market-BENICIA REAL ESTATE Short sale or walk away? Women are among those most affected by the housing crisis. I estimate that 75 percent of my clients are women who are the only mortgage holder on their home. The remaining 25 percent are couples.  Most of my clients are professional women who were recently laid off or unexpectedly separated from a partner and are having trouble making their mortgage payments.  I see a lot of situations where a couple's relationship suffers because of economic issues, and married couples may even go through divorces. Lately I've had a lot of women coming to me and asking for help. Alternatives to foreclosure I want my clients to know there are alternatives to foreclosure. If you want to stay in the home, I re...

CALIFORNIA NURSES HISTORICALLY INFLUENCE STATE ELECTIONS-BENICIA REAL ESTATE Having been previously employed as an RN, I have seen firsthand the impact that California Nurses can have in an election year or in a heated political debate.  Just ask Arnold how strong nurses can be when it comes to defending their ability to serve their patients.   In my career as an RN, I was both a part of CNA as well as an exempt employee.  Union member or not, nurses are a strong force to change the political landscape of our state. With no incumbent running for governor, there is a tremendous potential for nurses to have a say in which direction our state will go in next.  I encourage you as nurses to go out and get involved in whichever candidate that you believe will do the best for our state, our pa...
