Is WINTER a Good Time To Try & Sell My House? YES. YES. YES. Here Are My Three Top Reasons - 02/28/11 10:45 AM
Your Lake Arrowhead Realtor would like to share some local Lake Arrowhead Information with you. Some sellers are under the impression that spring and summer are the only seasons to list their home. I am here to say NO, NO, NO. I couldn't disagree more. Though spring and summer are good times to list, WINTER can be the best. Lake Arrowhead (all our mountain towns) is a resort community, where approximately 50% of our home-owners are part-timers. They buy cabin/homes not just to get away from the hustle-bustle of big city living, but to experience our four mild seasons... winter being one of their (7 comments)
Lake Arrowhead & other Mountain Towns Winter Weather Weekend ~ Feb. 25, 2011 ~ Be Prepared & Stay Safe - 02/25/11 10:09 AM
Your Lake Arrowhead Realtor would like to share some local Lake Arrowhead Information with you. Well, to be perfectly honest, if the weather peeps are correct with their prediction, we're in for a weekend of "rough" weather. Today and Saturday are supposed to be our worst, with clearing and sunshine on Sunday. Snow levels are supposed to drop to 1,000 ft (HEY, that is to the valley floor). But I'm thinking the ski resorts are not going to be detoured. They'll be happy to see you! So , if you're planning a trip up, just to hunker down in a cozy cabin, or (7 comments)
Wordless Wednesday ~ Whata Ya Do After a Big Snow Storm? - 02/23/11 01:38 PM
You make a snowman (or woman). And NO, I had nothing to do with making this awesome creation. I was on my way to an appointment the other day and saw this perfect SNOWPEEP. **** Update; Just saw in The Mountain News (2-24-2011 page A-10) this snowman was blt by Haylee Mata and her parents. Good JOB!
Ice Carving at Lake Arrowhead Village ~ First Annual Winterfest ~ 2-20-2011 - 02/20/11 08:13 PM
Your Lake Arrowhead Realtor would like to share some local Lake Arrowhead Information with you. This weekend in Lake Arrowhead, Lake Arrowhead Village had its FIRST ANNUAL WINTERFEST! On top of that, Mother Nature dropped by last night with a snowy visit...we got about a good foot of the fluffy, fresh flakes. And today, after most of us shoveled, or plowed out, we headed to the Village. Check out these talented ice carvers... AMAZING!
Lake Arrowhead Weather ~ Presidents Weekend ( 2-28-2011) Storms in the San Bernardino Mts. - 02/18/11 06:36 PM
Your Lake Arrowhead Realtor would like to share some local Lake Arrowhead Information with you. The storms the weather peeps have been warning us about are almost here.

A Prayer for A Friend is Needed & I Sure Would Appreciate It If You Could Take A Moment... - 02/17/11 08:53 PM
Updates are on the bottom. Rarely do I ask any of my ActiveRain friends for a favor, though I know I can anytime. I just save favor asking for very special moments. This is a very special moment, for a very special friend, Michael Faust. (this is a picture of Michael and his beautiful bride, Barbara). When my family and I moved to Lake Arrowhead in 1991, my oldest son, Dwayne, quickly got a job at Borderline (in Blue Jay at that time), where he met Michael (along with other young people working there that became life-long family pals). Michael was the tall, (24 comments)
Listening To Our Client Should Be #1 ON "OUR LIST" ~ Look, Listen, Learn - 02/17/11 11:09 AM
Your Lake Arrowhead Realtor would like to share some local Lake Arrowhead Information with you. I love meeting new clients! It's always a challenge trying to figure out exactly what they're looking for in a home or cabin. Many times what they "thought they wanted" turns out to be just the opposite. More often than not, I have sold a home to a buyer that is nothing like the criteria they gave me in our initial communication. ...COMMUNICATION, that is the key, right along side LISTENING. We (Realtors) are in a business where listening to a client is/may be the KEY to our success. (4 comments)
FIRST ANNUAL WINTERFEST IN LAKE ARROWHEAD AT THE VILLAGE ~ Maybe? - 02/16/11 09:52 AM
Your Lake Arrowhead Realtor would like to share some local Lake Arrowhead Information with you. This coming weekend, Feb. 18 thru 21 is Lake Arrowhead Village's FIRST ANNUAL WINTERFEST! However, with the storms coming, I am not certain what's going to be happening. IF they proceed with it, you'll be in for a treat. This year's theme is "In The Good 'Ol Days..." and the two featured events taking place are, the Professional & Amateur Ice Carving Competition and Lake Arrowhead Village Photo Contest. Now, to be perfectly honest, I can hardly draw a stick person, so you won't see any of my handy work on (3 comments)
You Knew It Couldn't Last (Warm Temps in The Mountains) ~ Winter is Coming Back. Woot! Woot! - 02/14/11 10:08 AM
Your Lake Arrowhead Realtor would like to share some local Lake Arrowhead Information with you. We've had a perfectly light & dry winter so far (well, except for those heavy rains in late Dec/early Jan). Word is on the weather peeps lips is that we have some storms heading our way. Get the snow plow, shovels, boots and gloves out and be ready to have some fun! Ski resorts are all excited (naturally). If you haven't been up lately for some runs down the slopes, you may want to be making plans to pop on up. SNOW VALLEY (a few miles east of Running Springs on (5 comments)

If You Want To Really Impress Me (if that's your goal) Then Don't BRAG! Key Word; Humble - 02/10/11 09:57 AM
...a little rant Nothing, and I mean nothing, turns me off more than someone bragging and boasting: About themselves. Their Kids (okay, I can accept kid/grandbaby bragging). Their Place of Employment...ANYTHING. There are subtle ways of sharing with a person or friend how one feels about something without getting all gooey andsticky-sweet and me-me-me-ish. I love hearing people tell me how they feel about current events, what's going on at home, and the place they work. I love hearing/knowing how happy and excited they are. But God help me, I can't take it when they go on and on and on about HOW (11 comments)

My Best Open House EVER Was on SUPER BOWL SUNDAY - 02/06/11 10:41 AM
Your Lake Arrowhead Realtor would like to share some local Lake Arrowhead Information with you. Yeah, yeah, I hear the boos and hisses right now .... but it's true; MY BEST OPEN HOUSE EVER WAS ON SUPER BOWL SUNDAY, which goes to show you not every live body is a football nut fan. And I am not ashamed to admit it. I raised three boys who all enjoy watching, if not playing, the game of football (and baseball and many other sports). But for me, I never got the idea behind football... running and ramming into another person all the while trying to take (15 comments)

Mobster, Bugsy Siegal & His Ties To Lake Arrowhead ~ A Little Piece of Trivia - 02/03/11 10:23 AM
Your Lake Arrowhead Realtor would like to share some local Lake Arrowhead Information with you. I wrote this a few years back, but thought for those who missed it, they might find it a "fun read." Lake Arrowhead has always had ties with the Hollywood bunch. MANY celebrities now, as well as then, have called Lake Arrowhead home....an escape from the hustle-bustle of Los Angeles and other large cities below. But the most famous celebrity ever to own property in Lake Arrowhead was the notorious mobster, Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegal." Bugsy (he lothed being called Bugsy) talked the Chicago Mob into backing his new venture, which is now known (6 comments)
