  “I Can’t Live Here, Those Cabinet Doors Look Hideous.” A Fair Oaks, CA apartment manager was showing a unit to a prospective renter; the unit was looking pretty good. Carpet, paint, counters, and new fixtures, but something was still missing before it was rentable. The cabinet doors were in bad shape and it was very obvious that something needed to be done to get good tenants moved in. The doors of the kitchen cabinets were damaged over time due to water. The worse damage was on the cabinets near the kitchen sink, water spills and wet hands can take a toll on low end cabinets. The doors of these cabinets tend to be low cost particle board with a wood veneer and do not handle water well.

  When I first started my blogging tenure with Active Rain I had no idea what I was getting into.

Susan Neal is a top Realtor® in the beautiful town of Fair Oaks California.  Those of you who know me know that I spent a good part of my life growing up in Sacramento and grew up in Carmichael, just minutes from Fair Oaks. I flew into Sacramento to meet with friends and business partners. I asked if Susan would like to meet me for lunch and she agreed. Meeting Susan was like meeting an old friend.  Because of the community platform Active Rain created  I was able to get to know Susan before ever meeting her.  We talked for a ...
