​Words worth considering...

"Real estate cannot be lost or stolen, nor can it be carried away. Purchased with common sense, paid for in full, and managed with reasonable care, it is about the safest investment in the world."

~ Franklin D. Roosevelt


C.A.R.'s Guidance on Governor's Stay-at-Home Order - Updated March 20, 2020
“Yesterday Governor Newsom and the State Public Health Officer issued Executive Order N-33-20 requiring all Californians to stay home except as needed to maintain continuity of operations in 16 infrastructure sectors. This supersedes all existing local city and county orders that are less restrictive. The real estate industry is not exempt from this prohibition except as needed to maintain “continuity of operation … of … construction, including housing construction.” Therefore, REALTORS® should cease doing all face-to-face marketing or sales activities, including showings, listing appointments, open houses and property inspections. Clients and other consumers are also subject to these orders and should not be visiting properties or conducting other business in person. Property management and repair work, which generally involves maintaining sanitary and safety conditions is permissible. Additionally, many other aspects of the real estate industry can continue to occur without in-person contact, including documentation and signing, and in many circumstances, closings. Other activities may also be managed remotely, though there may be some difficulties.”

A recent client's recommendation...

My brother and I found ourselves with the sudden and unexpected passing of our Mother and the barrage of steps that go along with settling an estate. We called the friendly face I had seem on many for-sale signs in Mission Bay Mobile Home Park, where my mother was living. We thought this realtor must know what she is doing, right? Let me say…. we were not disappointed!  She met with us within a few hours on that first day and stayed by our side for the entire time it took to sell the home. She told us exactly what we needed to do, the order in which to do it and gave us great references to get the work done. She is a plethora of knowledge about senior living, the market and what it takes to get the sale. Though we fought her a few steps of the way…. she was always right and in the end, we got more than we originally wanted and couldn’t be happier with the sale, bitter sweet as it was. If you are looking for someone to help you sell even the most challenging of homes, Joanne is your choice! She is kind, compassionate, spunky, well known and knowledgeable as hell about what it takes to get the job done. She and her team, Richard, Dawn and Cree immediately make you feel like family. One that I’m not quite ready to give up yet, whether they like it or not!
