Beware of Natural Predators - 07/16/11 11:34 AM
A few weeks ago, I showed a single family home in Sherman Oaks, California. After locking up, my clients and I parted. As I was driving down the hill, I saw a coyote run across the street, ducked into the bushes out of sight. It was only 11:00am. Yesterday as I was driving up the hill to a gated townhouse complex in Woodland Hills, California, I saw a lone coyote standing on the wall ledge. As I neared, the animal stopped, looked in my direction, turned abruptly and ran into the bushes. This sighting took place at 3:00pm. I drove through (9 comments)

A Voice From Afar - 07/14/11 12:16 AM
One early Saturday morning I was sipping my coffee and reading the local newspaper online. I was enjoying a quiet moment, when my cell phone rang. Although I did not recognize the area code, I answered anyway. It was a woman wanting to view a property on a street that was unfamiliar to me. After probing further, I found out that she wanted to view a property some place in New York City. I'm in Sherman Oaks, California. Hoping on a plane from Los Angeles and flying to New York City was not an option. We continued to talk for about (18 comments)
