Financial Feng Sui - 11/08/08 09:24 AM
By Coco Clayman-Cook We could all use a little financial boost right now so why not take this opportunity to perform a little financial Feng Shui on our living spaces. One important thing to remember is that Feng Shui seeks to bring wealth to your home; wealth brings a feeling of security and fulfillment, so ultimately what you are seeking to do is create an environment in which you feel secure and fulfilled. Locate the south eastern corner of your home. For accuracy you may want to use a compass, but often you can figure it out logically. Just remember that (0 comments)

By Coco Clayman-Cook What service really makes you feel pampered? Luxury Condominiums in Los Angeles' famed Westside offer such a wide variety of amenities that you literally can pick and choose. Do you require wine storage? Would you like tennis courts on the grounds? Would you like 24 hour concierge services? How about a media equipped conference room on the ground floor at your disposal? Would you prefer a heated lap pool in your state-of-the-art gym or would you prefer a romantic roof top pool on the roof of your building with a 360 degree view of the city? On the (0 comments)
Relocating to Los Angeles - 11/08/08 09:05 AM
By Coco Clayman-Cook Moving to Los Angeles is a great opportunity but it can be a bit of bumpy entry if you are unfamiliar with the area. Los Angeles is a richly diverse city with wide variety of neighborhoods specializing in an even wider array of life styles. I specialize in the neighborhoods that comprise the jewel of Los Angeles, the area known as the Westside. Whether you are looking for a luxury condo in the famed Wilshire Corridor or a beach condo that allows you sip your morning latte on the sand, I am the expert who can make it (0 comments)
Condo Life for the Newly Retired - 11/08/08 08:58 AM
By Coco Clayman-Cook If you are newly retired or about to be retired you may want to consider the LA condo life style. I will admit to being biased, I am a tremendous fan of this lifestyle. As a resident of the famed Wilshire Corridor I have first hand experience with the benefits of vertical living. One of the greatest things about condo life is the convenience. Vertical living allows you to be close to all of the things you want to be close too, while allowing you to enjoy privacy and safety. I love the fact that I can quickly (0 comments)
Preparing Your Home for the Holidays - 11/07/08 09:49 PM
By Coco Clayman-Cook As the Holidays approach it is wise to get your home ready for guests, both expected and unexpected. I like to take some time in early November to make sure that everything is in order in my guest room. First I check make sure that the closet is clean, de-cluttered and available for my guests. Then I take the time to stock my guest bathroom with lovely basket of a wide assortment of toiletries. I instruct my cleaning staff to perform a deep clean on both rooms and to properly air them out. I make sure my pantry (1 comments)
Evo-lution is Here - 11/07/08 09:42 PM
By Coco Clayman-Cook Evo, Los Angeles' newest condominium is ready to change the face of downtown's condominium scene. The question is: Is Los Angeles ready? This isn't just your average condo building, this is a green condo. Poised to receive a silver rating from the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program (LEED) Evo will offer its residents 24 stories of eco friendly design. Will this environmentally conscious living space be enough of an enticement to lure buyers into the turbulent market to buy? We'll see, but with the clock ticking on the city council's commitment to (0 comments)
Selling Your Luxury Condo to Corporate America - 11/07/08 09:38 PM
By Coco Clayman-Cook Recently I represented a client who was selling their luxury condo. Ultimately, the condo sold very quickly to a large corporation based in downtown Los Angeles. More and more companies are charging their HR departments with the authority to look for and acquire luxury condo properties for company assets. When you stop to consider how much it costs to house visiting executives in luxury hotels it's easy to see why corporations are now buying luxury condominiums. Real Estate is a strong investment. If you have the opportunity to build equity instead of throwing money away, it is always (0 comments)
Selling Your Condo in the Current Market - 11/07/08 09:30 PM
By Coco Clayman-Cook If you are looking to sell your condo in the current market, there a few crucial things you should be aware of: 1. You need to hire a professional stager. In this market, it is vital that you put your best foot forward. Trust me if you have a good stager and the right price you will sell your home much quicker and for a higher price than if you don't. 2. Set the right price on day one. Don't list the price you are hoping for with the idea in the back of your head that if it doesn't (0 comments)
