Appointed to be on the Board of Directors for the National Association of Realtors for 2022-2024 AND to be Vice Chair of the Federal Taxation Committee!

I am super excited for 2022. Why? As an association volunteer leader since about 2008, this year the stars have aligned.

And additionally, like the icing on the cake, I learned of my appointment to be the Vice Chair of the NAR Federal Taxation Committee for 2022. To say I am excited is an understatement!

I absolutely love being an engaged and active member of all three of our associations. It is this very involvement that inspired me to go to graduate school and earn a Masters Degree in Public Policy & Administration, which I finished in 2018. I love advocating for homeownership, private property rights, and importantly -- tax rules that incentivize and ease property ownership and property transfer. So to help drive our federal taxation policy agenda is really cool.

All this while being a top producing agent...many people ask me how I balance all of this, and really when you love what you are doing everything is fun and does not feel like work. And this all helps me be a better agent for my clients.

Sacramento is officially on the map!

Ok, so I am having this silly moment of excitement. Every city I travel to seems to have its own Starbucks mug. Except in Sacramento there’s always a generic “California” mug. Until yesterday. I happened to drop by a Starbucks location in Natomas and I did a double take when I saw this beautiful mug! Of course I had to buy one. 

(I feel like we’ve made it‼️)

Excessive pet urine destroys stuff, in case you were totally wondering...

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then it must also be worth about an 9.0 magnitude on the Richter Scale of smell. 

Be glad you can't smell this photo, because your eyes would water and you might want to take an immediate shower.

This is an image of what the subfloor looks like after carpet and pad were removed from a bedroom where a tenant kept a dog who who urinated excessively in the house (in violation of the rental lease, of course). In preparing this home for sale, BEFORE new flooring could be installed in this room, a contractor treated the subfloor with an enzyme in an attempt to kill the odor. They then had to apply an oil based sealer. And then new carpet, pad, and baseboards were installed, and the room painted. 

To remove and dispose of the carpet, pad, tackstrip, baseboards and get rid of the smell cost about $750, plus the cost of reinstalling new flooring. Overall this owner was fortunate that the pet urine seemed to be isolated to this one room, because doing this treatment throughout the entire 2000sf+ home would have been ridiculously expensive. For what it's worth, this owner is replacing all of the flooring and painting the entire interior of the house, so everything will be crisp and clean eventually. And the seller will disclose this to buyers...

The moral of the story: housebreak your pets. Or don't have them...
