SCAM ALERT…Okay, maybe not a scam. I guess you could call it an Ignorance Tax like the Lottery. Our clients are receiving official-looking letters offering to provide homeowners with profiles of their property for a “Service Fee” of $89.00. You can drop by the County recorder and get this information yourself for almost nothing! The letters DO state that “This service is not affiliated with any governmental agency” but a lot of folks don’t actually read the letter. It LOOKS official. Beware! Save your money. You’re welcome.

MOMENTUM IS BUILDING! Are you thinking of making a move? Interest rates are still low. Is it time to move UP! To downsize? To invest? My hand picked Team and I are here to help! And if you have friends or family who need a high level of service and straight talk from people who genuinely care about their clients, we’d love to talk with them. Your referrals are the lifeblood of our business! Thanks in advance.

CONGRATULATIONS to another pair of Mystery Clients on their successful purchase of a fine Lodi home! The Statesman Team’s Sherry Dickhoff was the point person of this transaction. Broker-Associate Sherry has years of experience and hundreds of successful transactions under her belt. Thanks, Sherry!

SPEAKING OF DOGS, last night at a listing appointment Team Member Kristina Heisler and I met a pure-white Westie and a Golden Lab. I got home and Spike T. Dog barked, “Who have you been hangin’ out with?” Have a great week.
