A+ Customer Service At Macy's Downtown Sacramento

A+ Customer Service At Macy's Downtown Sacramento

Sacramento -- As a woman who loves to shop, I often experience less than enthusiastic sales people -- especially during a holiday sale! That's why the effort by an executive at Macy's in downtown Sacramento deserves my thanks for going the extra mile to help me during the recent Presidents' Day Sale. When an advertised toaster oven resulted in a sell-out, Macy's executive "Rob" promised to contact other Macy store locations to, hopefully, find this toaster oven at a generously-discounted price. I told Rob my old toaster oven (a wedding gift in 1974) is "sparking" while in use. Clearly, I need a new toaster oven before my garlic bread turns into a camp fire. Even though Rob promised to find me the advertised toaster oven, I assumed that once I'm out of sight that I'd also be out of Rob's mind. Two days later, Rob called saying he located the out-of-stock toaster oven! Amazingly, Rob wants me to be a happy Macy's shopper. He succeeded.

$35,000 Donation and Volunteers Honor Local Veterans with a Much-Needed, Single-Day VFW Hall Renovation

The Fair Oaks Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) facility will be the site of more than $35,000 in donated and much needed renovations on Wednesday, February 22nd, in an all-day volunteer work-a-thon.

Three of Sacramento's Home Depot stores (which provided the grant) along with their managers and employees will join with the nonprofit organization Rebuilding Together and nearly a dozen local building and home improvement companies for the remodeling blitz. Many of the VFW post's military veterans will join the contractors as they replace sheetrock, texture and paint, upgrade restrooms to ADA compliance, replace doors with new fire-compliant emergency exits, install new exterior fencing and much more.

Where's the Relief?

Where's the Relief?

By now, we’ve all heard the news, “CA and NY have joined the multi-state mortgage settlement.” As a real estate and mortgage professional, I did (legal) loan modifications for nearly four years and I can assure you, California joining this lawsuit will do little to help California home owners struggling to keep their homes.  

Let’s look at the facts, the most important one being that CA has six out of the top ten cities in the nation hardest hit by declining home values (Modesto (4), Merced (5), Stockton (7), Riverside (8), Bakersfield (9), and Vallejo/Fairfield (10), with many of them 30-50% underwater.

The bottom line is this, a $20,000 principal forgiveness is not nearly enough to help balance out the numbers from underwater to break-even.

Capital Bowl named, "2011 West Sac Chamber Business of the Year"

Capital Bowl named, "2011 West Sac Chamber Business of the Year"

Capitol Bowl was originally El Rancho Bowl, part of a complex that included a first-rate hotel and a drive-in movie theater. Built in the early 1950s, the El Rancho complex was on U.S. 40, the main drag from San Francisco to the Capitol.

When I80 was built in 1956 bypassing West Sacramento's "motel row," the city began to lose momentum. El Rancho continued to serve the community and set the pace for desegregating bowling alleys and encouraging women in the sport. (In the 1970s, one Sacramento TV station covered bowling scores in the nightly sports report!)Ross and Shaida Amin are the third family to own the bowling alley, changing the name when they bought it 11 years ago.

Chris White joined them shortly after Capitol Bowl opened. Since then, they've worked hard to improve the property and give back to the community. Capitol Bowl generously donates to fundraisers and provides volunteer "thank-you" parties for local non-profits.
