What a great 4th of July!

Thank You to everyone for your kind words and appreciation of a simple gesture to bring the communities that we live in and work in together. The Natalie Swanson Real Estate Team placed an American flag in the front yards of a few of the Livermore (Tempo & Sunset East) and Pleasanton (Moor Park and The Preserve)neighborhoods. We then requested folks to pick up that flag and take a selfie and post it to your Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat or even the Next Door App. We had promised to report back on the collection of photos. Well check them out here.

Summer Road Trip Tips


A road trip is an adventure where the journey is more important than the destination. While there are many ways to “do” a road trip. Here are 4 ideas to whet your appetite.
  1. Choose a theme. Ghost towns, water parks, museums, etc. Make the trip all about that. Map out locations for theme items, then draw a line connecting your stops.
  1. Do a little research to see if there are any weird, random things to see along your route.
  2. Make a documentary, or a mockumentary, if you prefer.
  3. Eat at small local "dives,” like diners, road-side food shacks, and one-off restaurants.
A few extra tips:
  • Bring a spare car key.
  • Get a cash-back credit/gas card.
  • Bring a cell phone charger.
  • Never let the gas go below 1/3.

My Advice


Should I List with a "Neighborhood Specialist" or an Agent I Was Referred to?

Neighborhood specialists are agents who typically know the amenities and values of a neighborhood, and so they make great buyer's agents. This can also make them great ambassadors for your listing in a particular neighborhood. As long as they're committed to working as hard as a referred agent, and they have a measurable track record of listing homes, (or the backing of a highly experienced broker), then a neighborhood agent is fine.

Of course, a non-neighborhood agent will do, too. An experienced non-neighborhood agent will know how to "sell" the neighborhood along with the house, and know how to research the market to price your home correctly. Truth is most listing agents don't get a chance to talk to the buyers anyway, so it's really their marketing to other Realtors that will ultimately bring you an offer, not their neighborhood savvy.

As long as their reputations are equal, you'll be fine with either a neighborhood agent or an agent who was referred to you by someone you trust.

Looking to list? Let me know your time frames for selling and I’ll put together a custom listing package for you.
