Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At last, a readable, entertaining, and practical real estate guide--the perfect companion for women intent on buying a home.

Once a week, six women living in Los Angeles meet to read from the Tao te Ching and reflect on their lives. One subject arises over and over: the dream of owning a home. One by one they take on the real estate market. They discover, among themselves, great reservoirs of expertise and experience that keep them sane--and laughing--along the way. Now, the Tao Girls want to share that expertise and experience with women who find themselves similarly confused, frustrated, or disappointed.

The Tao Girl's Guide to Real Estate offers a way to keep your head through it all, to eliminate that sense of helplessness, overwhelming tension, and emotional fatigue so often a part of finding a home. In telling their lively and often amusing personal stories, the Tao Girls also deliver a terrific dose of practical advice for buying any house--from the smallest condo to a suburban family dream house.

Book News Annotation:

Huneven, a fiction writer, and Murphy, a literary critic, offer a guide to real estate based on their experiences as part of a group of women in LA who first met to discuss spiritual principles and the Tao Te Ching and began talking about real estate. In the book, they give advice about real estate and tell the stories of these women. Each chapter focuses on a specific element of the process and ends with a Tao-based worksheet. Topics include realtors, qualifying, mortgages, escrow, remodeling, and women and real estate. There is no bibliography. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
