Truly an International Realtor via the Internet and Mobile Technology - 09/24/08 10:08 PM
The other day I had what I call a truly International Real Estate day. One of my earliest clients I met in Los Angeles e-mailed me and wanted a synopsis of the Real Estate Market. He lives in Thailand now and wanted to know how the market is, whether it is a Seller's or Buyer's market, since he would like to sell his Land in Malibu, CA.
Same day I received an e-mail from a buyer from New Zealand. They wanted to get information, since they are considering relocating to Southern California, (some where in Los Angeles County). They had (9 comments)
One of the benefits of this Global Economy is the ability to purchase and own Real Estate Globally. The current Real Estate situation in Southern California makes it particularly interesting for International Investors to purchase Real Estate here. The strong Euro and weak Dollar makes an investment in Southern California very appealing proposition to European investors.
I have just referred a for sale property in Germany to a German Realtor (Deutscher Immobilienmakler). The Seller lives and lived in Southern California for the past 16 years and had the place rented to an elderly woman, who is moving into a (9 comments)
For a Smooth Relocation, Plan, Organize and Anticipate! - 09/19/08 07:07 PM
For someone who has moved around the world between Europe and within the continental US more then twenty times, I can safely say I am an expert at Relocating. My last move was a short distance from Century City, (Los Angeles) CA to Marina Del Rey, CA. Nevertheless I swore I will only move one possibly twice more in my life.
Needless to say I understand what it means to make drastic changes, to leave your family and friends and neighbors are sometimes emotionally painful. Then with that comes the anxiety to pack, what to get rid of and what (11 comments)
Marina del Rey, CA. Hospitals - 09/11/08 02:19 AM
As I sit infront of my computer screen I am reflecting on seven years ago the tragedy we faced in this country that changed everything. Here we are on the night of 9/11 and I was wondering what if something happened here in the Marina. Where would a new person that just moved here go, if they had an emergency, a medical crisis. I am one who last wants to see a Hospital or a Doctor, but there are many people that relocate, come to visit would like to know, especially if there is an emergency. So as I did my (4 comments)

More and more, I started focusing more on helping smaller Local Groups : Last (9 comments)

Marina Del Rey, CA Grocery Stores - 09/03/08 07:56 PM
I have been meaning to to write about the Grocery Stores in Marina Del Rey, CA. I had to stop first and write about the demographics and population before. It is hard to believe that in this coastal community of Marina del Rey,( 8,000+ in Marina Proper or 18,000+ in 90292 zip code) there are so many Grocery Stores. First I must let you know I love to cook, therefore I am passionate about having good and fresh produce. I am a firm believer the meal you prepare is only as good as the ingredients. The better the ingredience the better the meal. So (5 comments)
Information on Marina Del Rey, CA (Geography,Population & Post Office) - 09/03/08 02:00 PM
What prompted me to give our readers more information about the Marina was the fact that I wrote about restaurants and was about the write about the Grocerie Stores.

So here you have it. The coastal community of Marina del Rey, CA is locted in the center of Los Angeles' Westside between Venice Beach and Playa del Rey. Marina del Rey is about 800+ acres, of which half is under (3 comments)
Another Fine Restaurant in Marina Del Rey, CA - 09/01/08 05:23 PM
If you are new to the Marina or are considering relocating. Remember it is mostly about the good life, healty food and sunshine.The beach has it's own culture, relaxed dress code, it is not the Century City or Downtown business suits crowd that you see.( more then likely they moved here to relax after a hectic workday and you never know by their clothing) Here is another good reason. The Mercedes' Cuban Grill. It is located at 14 Washington Blvd, Marina Del Rey CA 90292 Phone 310.577-0035. The Menu consist of great seafood, meats and vegetarian options. If you sit outside (3 comments)
