So There Was a Realtor’s Summit….

said on March 10th, 2018 filed under: Real Estate Nuts and Bolts, Success Stories, Whimsy

CJ had a ton of fun, got to meet plenty of people (most aren’t pictured), and won some awards. Take a look!

 

 

Arrival at the Peppermill in Reno… So many people!

 

 

Everyone on their best behavior at one of the seminars, all business…

 

 

….And the same people two hours later, living it up!

 

 

Everyone got noise-makers for the awards ceremony (totally unnecessary, the crowd was huge!)

 

 

CJ was in the top 100 producers at Century 21 for 2017!

 

 

 

And here’s CJ with Deanne!

 

 

The Badge!

 

 

The Ticket!

 

 

The Top 100 Invite!

 

 

And CJ made Masters for her 13th year in a row!

It was a most excellent ride, she’ll be back next year!

 

 

Added bonus: She also won an IPad. Check it!

Please Welcome the Boothes to Lake of the Pines, CA

said on March 9th, 2018 filed under: Localism

Please welcome the Boothes into our lovely community of Lake of the Pines. They look forward to joining us for the years to come!

 

These guys knew just what they were looking for and just who to call (hint: it wasn’t the Ghostbusters). With CJ’s help, the Boothes found the perfect home for their children and their goals, and it’s even close to the grandparents.

They already have big plans for their home and I can’t wait to see this family achieve them!

How to Stay Safe During Snow Storms

said on March 2nd, 2018 filed under: Alta Sierra, Colfax, Grass Valley, Localism, Nevada City

 

 

We’ve got a snow advisory on our hands, but we can handle it. If you’re new to the area or just feeling a little unsure, here’s some tips on what to do when bad weather hits.

 

1. Stay inside and stay warm.

2. Get pertinent news from local radio stations. In our area, 89.5FM and 830AM are good bets.

3. Be prepared to leave if you lose power or heat. Know where you’ll go and how to stay safe on the way.

4. Prepare an emergency kit with food, water, and medical supplies. If you need anything, judge carefully whether or not it is actually safe to go out to get it.

5. Bring your animals inside if possible and make sure they all have access to food, unfrozen water, and blankets

6. You can prevent pipes from freezing by leaving a couple of faucets trickling water. Not a lot, but enough to keep the water moving.

7. Make sure you have a dependable heating source and plenty of blankets. Wood stoves will keep you warm in a power outage, while propane and electricity may be less reliable.

8. Avoid driving unnecessarily. Even if you are comfortable driving in the snow and ice, others on the road are not. Just because you aren’t likely to crash does not mean others aren’t likely to crash into you.

9. If you absolutely have to go out, take precautions. Bring your phone, blankets, food, water. Let someone know where you’re going and when to expect you in case something goes wrong.

10. If you get stranded, stay in your car. When it’s safe, hang a bright cloth off your radio antennae and try to only turn your car on for ten minutes out of every hour to preserve fuel and battery life.

 

Mostly, just relax and try to stay at home. Play games, read, hang out with your family, and stay warm.

It’s just a storm; with a few precautions you’ll endure it just fine.

Another Home Sold in Lake of the Pines

said on March 1st, 2018 filed under: Lake of the Pines, Success Stories

 

You remember the Tahoe style home we mentioned a while back, right? Looked a little bit like this? (Or exactly like it, if you wanna be accurate.)

 

 

So it’s sold. We’ve recorded, it’s all official and whatnot. We’ll miss the *former* owners in the community, and they know they’ll miss Lake of the Pines, but they’re moving out-of-state to be closer to family. Adventure awaits! (Or maybe that’s grandkids?)

Northridge Restaurant

said on February 28th, 2018 filed under: Lake of the Pines, Localism, Whimsy

So let pretend for a moment…. that you’re hungry. Not the normal kind of hunger, but the deep set, cloying kind of hunger. The kind of hungry where a home cooked meal just doesn’t cut it. You want a restaurant. A good one. And you’re on Combie Road, just outside of Lake of the Pines. Why are you there? Psh, you know why. Or you can make up a reason. Both are fine by me.

So what now?

Where do you go?

I’ll tell you.

 

 

You go to Northridge Restaurant, just off Combie, right by the CVS. Because you have taste. Or you want to. Again, both work.

Haha, but seriously, they’re great. They have incredible pizzas, salads, burgers, whatever. Last time I went I got a Popeye’s Pizza and a salad to split with some friends; we all left stuffed and satisfied. And with leftovers to boot.

 

This isn’t the Popeye Pizza, but it’s a solid example of a Northridge Pizza. We were too enamored with eating ours to take any pictures of it… Are we doing it wrong?

 

If you’re in the area and looking for grub, check it out. They hold events and such, they support Bear River Grad Night and certain charities, they’re local, and (of course!) the food is great. Good enough for me!

Nevada County Food Drive at Lake of the Pines

said on December 21st, 2017 filed under: Cultural Events, Lake of the Pines, Localism, Whimsy

Update:

We got the results of the Lake of the Pines Drive for the Nevada Co. Food Bank, and… We collected 5,550 lbs of food and $1,147!

It’s so amazing to live in a community that comes together like this, especially near the holidays. With this help, the Nevada Co. Food Bank can put a lot of food on a lot of tables, and it’s because you all chose to help. To everyone who donated, thank you!!!

 

 

I’m so proud of the Lake of the Pines community. Everyone reached into their hearts (and their cupboards) to fill their grocery bags for our Nevada County Food Bank!

 

 

We had two collection sites to donate at this year; I worked at the LOP front gates and the donation bags just kept coming and coming! In fact, our community gave so much that by 11:00 am, we had to have the Food Bank send a truck just for the huge amount of morning donations!

 

 

 

Thank you, Lake of the Pines! I am so fortunate to live in a community that reaches out to those who are less fortunate!
