Keepin the Loo clean

All of us at socalhomeshop hate cleaning the bathroom. To make matters worse it seems to be one of the most difficult places in our homes to keep clean. However, with a few clever changes and upgrades, it can be much easier to clean and maintain your bathroom. Check it out:

1-No-Touch Faucets: They’re not just for public restrooms, you know. A sensor on your bathroom faucet will eliminate one of the main touchable surfaces.

2-Install or upgrade the exhaust fan: The fan isn’t just for reducing odors or keeping the mirrors from fogging. The better your ventilation system in the bathroom, the easier it will be to prevent mildew and mold. It’ll also prevent paint from bubbling and peeling.

3-Easy-Clean Toilets: Whoever designed older toilets certainly didn’t design them with cleaning in mind! Newer toilets are often designed with smoother services that make cleaning a much simpler task—no more standing on your head to reach every toilet surface.

4-Remove grout: Germs and grime love to build up in the spaces between tile. Instead of tile, you can cover larger surfaces with glass or stone veneer, or simply use larger tiles. That’ll reduce the overall amount of grout in your bathroom.

5-Have kids: They need to earn their keep, why not have them clean it?

P.S. Number 5 goes for pretty much any room in the house:)


Go Team!


I am excited to say that Brittany Schoor and I have formed a

dynamic new Real Estate duo called socalhomeshop.

Honestly, when she approached me, I thought she was a little

nuts. She has been successfully selling Real Estate longer than

me and is a real pro. Granted I’m no slouch, but I wasn’t sure

why she wouldn’t want to keep going it alone, I mean if it ain’t

broke, why fix it?

I soon learned the value of being part of a team.

We decided to test the waters of our potential “relationship” by

door knocking. We chose a neighborhood without a dominant

Realtor, thinking we might scare up some leads. Not many

people do this anymore, cuz basically, you are a solicitor and

not everyone is happy to see you, to say the least.

We were pretty much dreading it.

The good news is that once we started, we got into the groove

and actually had some fun, met some nice folks, and made

some good connections. Turns out it’s harder to turn away two

annoying Realtors than it is one, and frankly a lot of people

were relieved we were not there to save their souls, but

instead, help them potentially sell their home.

Who knew?

The ball started rolling from there. We started farming, calling

on expireds, hosting Open Houses, asking for referrals and we

got BUSY!

The best parts of being on a team are:

We keep each other accountable

We bounce ideas off one another

We support each other

We call each other out on BS and…

She bought me jewelry to seal the deal!

Call socalhomeshop for all your San Diego Real Estate needs.

(We are double trouble, in a really good way!)
