Honored with the Affiliate of the Year award

I’m excited to announce I was honored with the Affiliate of the Year award a few weeks ago from the Sacramento Association of Realtors. This award is given to one non-Realtor each year, and this year it was given to me. This was not expected, and I’m really blown away. I’m very proud to hang this plaque in my office, and I hope you can join me in the excitement. Thanks everyone.

Are you going to the 2011 NorCal Real Estate Expo?

Are you going to the NorCal Real Estate EXPO? It’s on Wednesday, April 6, 2011 from 8:30am-4:00pm at the Sacramento Convention Center. The Expo is going to be packed with numerous real estate classes, 50+ vendors, 500+ people, networking, cocktails and even a fashion show. I’m looking forward to meeting Frank & Brian from Think Big Work Small, hearing Jim Pelley as one of the key note speakers (I follow him on Twitter, but haven’t met him in person yet) and of course gleaning some tech tips from Chris Tellez & Mike Mueller.

I met up with Realtor Jeff Jurach this afternoon to shoot a promo video for this year’s Expo as shown below. Check out the video and let me know if you plan to be there. It would be great to meet up.

If you have any real estate appraisal, consulting, or property tax appeal needs in the Greater Sacramento Region, contact me at 916.595.3735, by email, on our company website or via Facebook.

The first 50 people who sign up and pay in advance get a free feathered mask at the door! This event is geared toward SARmembers and affiliates and their guests. For just $35 you can enjoy food from Tokyo Fro, Zocalo, and BJ’s Brewery (and more restaurants to be named later!), taste wine, bid on silent auction items, socialize and dance the night away! All funds raised benefit CanTree and other local charities. Last year’s event raised over $4,000 and was A LOT of fun – please help up make this event a huge success!

Let me know if you have any questions. Yes, I did make the video.

Come See a Sacramento SMUD Energy Efficient House on Tuesday April 20 11-2pm

This is very cool, and I encourage you to come check it out, especially if you work in the real estate field. SMUD has a fantastic demonstration next week on one of Housing Group Fund’s rehab properties. A home at 3893 32nd Avenue in Sacramento is part of the SMUD Energy Efficient Remodel Demonstration Project, and it’s going to be showed off next Tuesday, April 20, 2010 from 11:00am-2:00pm. 

SMUD claims that the state-of-the-art technology in this house can save up to 60% off utility bills (up to $1,500 per year in utility bills for the home owner). SMUD also offers some pretty amazing rebates for customers.

Free lunch is provided to Realtors. I’m planning on going and capturing on video some of the nifty features SMUD has installed on this house. If you’re in the real estate field, maybe I could interview you while at the property. It should be exciting to see how SMUD has outfitted this home to be more energy efficient.

At the site, you will:
·      See what a whole house energy efficient remodel looks like
·      Learn how your clients can save up to 60% off utility bills
·      Talk to SMUD Reps about new rebate programs
·     Learn about the most advanced energy efficient measures and technology
