About me 

Lori Alden has a B.A. in Political Science from the University of California at Berkeley, and a Ph.D. in economics from the University of California at Davis.  She taught college-level economics for almost twenty years before becoming a licensed real estate broker. 

She's developed several public interest websites, including FSBOPrimer.com, which has been cited in The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post as a useful reference for home sellers, and CapturetheCommission.com, which explains how buyers can negotiate buyer rebates with their agents. 

She's also the author of Econoclass.com, an online resource for economics teachers, Foodsubs.com, which describes cooking ingredients and recommends substitutions, and EqualShares.com, which suggests ways for heirs and divorcees to divide personal property fairly and efficiently, and auctiontipsheet.com, which explains how to save money at real estate auctions.

She's a real estate broker and co-owner (with her daughter) of ChalkboardRealty.com and several local FSBO website businesses, including FSBOSonoma.com, FSBOSolano.com, FSBONapa.com, FSBOAlameda.com, FSBOContraCosta.com, FSBOSac.com, FSBOSantaClara.com, and FSBOSanMateo.com

She's been a guest on Real Estate Today, a nationally syndicated radio talk show. Click here to listen to the interview.
