Neighborhood News

From beautiful Folsom Lake, to biking and hiking trails, highly regarded schools and low crime rates, Folsom continues to be one of the most desirable suburbs to live within Sacramento County. 

As an Empire Ranch resident, I am proud to be part of not only a thriving community, but a wonderful city. The quality of life here makes being a mom, wife, Real Estate Broker and business owner that much more enjoyable. However, before Empire Ranch evolved into the community it is today, it was just 1700 acres of land purchased and developed in 1865. Now, more than 3500 residents call Empire Ranch home. 

In this new monthly newsletter, I will share the latest on developments and happenings around Empire Ranch. Plus, local housing market updates, tips, Folsom events and much more. 

I would also like to invite all residents to join the Empire Ranch online community called Nextdoor. This easy to use website makes communicating with our neighbors about important alerts, events, and much more very convenient. If you’re not already a member and would like to join, just send me an email at and I’ll send you an invitation to join. 

Folsom Real Estate

It’s hard to believe it’s already August! So with more than half the year gone, how is the current housing market? 

For buyers: There is still a lot of competition in getting your dream home. Prices are still climbing and won’t stop anytime soon. 

For sellers: If you’re thinking about selling your home, don’t wait! There are more buyers ready to purchase property now than there has been in years! The supply of homes for sale in Folsom is not keeping up with the demand of buyers. 

Folsom Market Report

Folsom’s market report from May 2016 to June 2016 shows there was an increase in the number of homes for sale and sold.

Back to School Tips

It’s August, which means school schedules and busy days are right around the corner! However, back to school doesn’t always have to be a hectic time of year. Here are a few tips from one parent to another to help keep your home organized this month. 


Clear closets and get rid of stuff that your kids no longer need or want. 


Make an area of your home the designated homework station to help get your kids back into an after school work environment. 


Back-to-school also means shopping for school supplies. So to help you not make a bunch of trips to the store, make a list with your kids after their first day of school. 


Your kids are not used to having a schedule, so give them a few rules to help keep after school time in order.
