I have been replaced:   There is a New Chef in town... needless to say most of you who read my blog post regularly, know I am a pretty good Home Chef aka  cook.

Well Diane decided to replace the old floor mats in the kitchen. This is where  the trouble started, I was basically removed, well see for yourself.
The worst part is look the menu was changed too.... now this is … (10 comments)

The Culver City, CA 90230  & 90232    Market Trend Report is published read all about it!!!
Hard to believe that the inventory is still at the same tight level as it has been for the past three years... This of course is a clear indication that as most people who look at these reports will understand that it continues to remain a "seller's market".  If you have doubts check out the next graph:
Take my word when the Days on Market is at such a low number the odds are very likely that most of the homes are in multiple offers and above … (6 comments)

Next thing I know is Diane is screaming, clearly panic in her voice… Endre come here what is this? The answer was simple but not good: Termites in the Kitchen and in the Living Room… interestingly they were coming from under the house….
Diane immediately researched and thanks to Mr. Google the quick and … (34 comments)

endre barath: Almost Speechless Sunday: California Poppies.. - 03/18/18 10:31 PM
Diane and I love California Poppies so a couple weeks ago she decided to plant a few of them three in the front of the house and three on the side of it. In case you are not familiar these flowers are the California State Flowers and they spread relatively fast and do not require a great deal of the "green thumb" most other plants do.
So you can imagine how excited we both were when three days ago we saw the first one blooming. Well here go see for yourself and enjoy it like we do...
Clearly we have a ways to go … (23 comments)

Observations about the importance of ‘Priorities’ and ‘Time Blocking” by a Beverly Hills Realtor: Endre Barath, Jr.  
Having had my own business aka being a Beverly Hills Realtor for over 24+ years, I have learned that “Priorities” are key for long term survival and prospering, not just in Real Estate, but in any business. Not only is prioritizing critical, but it must be directly connected to “Time Blocking”. No matter who you are, or what you do, all your business decisions as well as your success will depend how good you are at these two factors.
The most important commodity anyone has … (54 comments)

endre barath: So what did you do when the Oscars were on? - 03/13/18 11:36 PM
Well in the good old days we used to throw an Oscar Party... well those days are gone... so what did we do? Well we celebrated just like if there was a big party:). 
I guess I am exaggerating, we popped a not too extravagant Champaign which was still very good. Now with that said. Did we miss anything by not having a large Oscar Party? Not really the clean up was easier and we did not need to argue about who was more deserved than the actual winner.
So with that said did we do an Oscar Ballot? Yes we did, was it fair … (36 comments)

I have failed to mention that we have been getting a couple great  Rain Storms in Los Angeles, CA. Most of us are elated, only those who come from the East Coast or other parts of the Globe and they do not understand how critical it is for us to get rain...Grumble...

It is clear to me that Golfers are like Realtors, Rain, Shine or … (19 comments)

endre barath: Bel Air, CA, 90077 zip code: Market Trends Report... - 03/11/18 08:49 PM
One of my favorite zip codes that I love is the 90077  and of course, this is where I love to sell homes and vacant land. That is the 90077 zip code, aka Bel Air, CA. There are so many of the well known  and high net worth individuals  who call the 90077 zip code as their home with good reason, that  the list is too long and they preferr not to be named  anyway to boot.
Sadly, there are  many who are no longer with us who used to call Bel Air, CA their home. In case you forgot or missed  … (3 comments)

FLY: F.L.Y. what does it mean to you?
Well before I give you an answer to the abbreviation, allow me to share a few well-known Quotes.
My philosophy is: it is none of my business what people say of me, what people think of me. I am what I am and do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier.

There was a time he roamed the streets of Westchester, CA in the 90045 zip code. When Diane and I bought our house he took a liking to us. As soon as we settled in, we noticed that he kept showing up day and night.
Well it got to the point that we started to put some food and water out for him. Next thing we know, we had him neutered and built a house for him, within a year he was inside our home.
Now if we open the the door he runs … (21 comments)
