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.

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.
