Another Lockbox for South Land Park into Inventory


It's always a bit sad for me when I pick up a lockbox after closing. I generally perform this task myself, although I could hire it to be done like most top agents. I like to collect my thoughts about the transaction as I drive to the house one last time. Reflect. Real estate transactions are about people, and people move out, begin a new life elsewhere and our daily interaction ceases.


Because I care about my clients, it's a bitter sweet moment when escrow closes and they move away. I'm grateful for the few months we worked together. Some of my sellers I work with for a year or more before we go on the market. And then the story comes to an end.


I picked up the lockbox from this home in South Land Park yesterday afternoon and there wasn't a soul around. Cars all over the street because of the Banana Festival in William Land Park, but no people.

Better Than a Leave It To Beaver House
This home in South Land Park Estates, just south of William Land Park and the Sacramento Zoo, was built in 1956, and every bit of that energy still seems to exist in this home today. It's like a time warp. My photographer said, "The sellers… more

In California, pest inspectors approve their own work. On the surface, you might assume that it makes sense for a pest inspector to sign off on a job -- since the inspector knows what to look for and all, but when you dig a little deeper, it seems… more
