Posted by on Dec 29, 2014 in East Sac, Just Sold | 0 comments

Last week I got to hand off the keys to 3838 McKinley Blvd to a D Street friend and neighbor. This is an amazing house with a high roof line and lots of architectural charm. After he does the little things to make it exactly the way he wants it, I’ll get to list his wonderful little house on my old block and help bring in a strong new comp for my neighbors. You can see all the details of this listing here....

Fab 40s Christmas Lights

Fab 40s Christmas Lights

Posted by on Dec 18, 2014 in East Sac, Events, Fab 40's | 6 comments

In Sacramento, the first place people think of when talking about impressive Christmas lights is the Fab 40’s. In what has long been a holiday tradition, the area’s majestic historic homes really get to show off with dazzling light displays. In case you haven’t made it out there already this year, the week leading up to Christmas is definitely prime time. While vehicles are certainly allowed to wander up and down the streets (40th-49th, between J Street and Folsom Blvd.), at least the most heavily illuminated stretches are best appreciated on foot–or by horse-drawn carriage. That way you can take your time to enjoy the lights without holding up traffic and really feel the Christmas-y vibe all around you. So bundle up, grab your thermos of hot cocoa and get ready to ooh and ahh. – 2017 Christmas update based on all the past questions: For all of those that want someone else to do the driving you have some options: Top Hand Ranch does horse drawn hayrides through the Fab 40’s. You can call them at (916) 655-3444 to make a reservation. They often book up well in advance. You can also take the Sac Brew Bike tour to see the lights and hit up some pubs as well. Call them at (916) 952-7973. The lights usually start going up the first weekend after Thanksgiving, are in full force by the second weekend of December and start coming down the weekend after Christmas. I am not affiliated with the hayride company or the brew bike company. The Christmas lights that the neighbors put up is not really an organized event. I am just an East Sac resident and real estate agent with Dunnigan Realtors who loves my neighborhood and blogging about different events in East Sac. I hope you find the information in this post and other parts of my blog helpful and enjoyable. Happy...

East Sac Mercantile Happy Holiday Hour

Posted by on Dec 16, 2014 in East Sac, Events, Uncategorized | 0 comments

I’m loving the Shop Local festivities that I’m seeing in East Sac this year and the good people at the East Sac Mercantile are making it even easier to keep the shopping in the neighborhood. Join them this Thursday any time between 4:00 and 7:00 for a Holiday Happy Hour and enjoy some wine, hors d’oeuvres, gift wrapping, personal shopping assistance and a chance to win a limo tour of the holiday lights. It’s a great way to shop 12 local stores and knock out the final Christmas list when you have just one week till the big day. They are located on Folsom and 33rd Street, right next to my favorite place for a business lunch, the 33rd Street Bistro....
