Good eating has come to the Hollywood Riviera's "Riviera Village." Dolce Vita is a wonderful new addition for the breakfast and lunch crowds. They are actually a german deli and sandwich shoppe with more of an italian name. Ripe w/ european flavors, Dolce Vita offers homemade quiche, flatbreads paired w/ fresh green salads, pasta & veggie salads, sandwiches on baquettes, delicious lattes and cappucino's to top of the meal. A certain return visit for me - especially since they actually had terrific customer service - a true bonus today. I also enjoyed sitting outdoors - they have a great set-up with plenty of (0 comments)
Loving Your House Again!! - 08/20/08 03:57 PM
In reading a few great articles this week regarding "loving your house again," I find myself smiling. Let me share: Chris Ayres of the LA Times wrote this greatopinion piece about "forgetting the doom and gloom about the tanking market. You made a smart investment." He makes so many great points for the many of us that bought houses in the last few years during the "real estate boom." We find ourselves stuck reading so much doom and gloom lately, but here's someone who has taken the time to break things down and make it all not seem so bad. I'm always looking for some good news in (0 comments)
Hollywood Riviera Real Estate For Sale - August 2008 - 08/13/08 12:40 AM
Hollywood Riviera is a terrific community in the heart of South Torrance....a lot of it has a Redondo Beach P.O. Box address, but it is all part of South Torrance. It butts up to the bottom of the hills of Palos Verdes and sits just south of Redondo Beach. Many of the homes have some of the most magnificent views to be found anywhere...views of the ocean, city, mountains - truly stunning on a clear day. The Hollywood Riviera has a neat little shopping district called the Riviera Village. It is abundant with cute boutiques, salons, coffee shops, Trader Joes, Jamba (0 comments)
Good Strategy for Seller's to Remember - 08/08/08 05:54 PM
It is a tough market for sellers right now. They aren't sales people in most cases and are not used to all the rejection lately. My gosh, first of all, buyers and their agents really, call at the last minute and expect to get into a house that is perfectly staged and ready for their last minute arrival. Then the buyers quickly whiz through and leave. That makes the seller feel terrible inside. Wondering why they didn't like their house. Here's the good strategy part - for everyone involved this is a good strategy. "The seller needs to leave the house (1 comments)
So You Think You Want to Buy a House? - 08/01/08 11:15 PM
Seems like we are always "speaking" to sellers about staging their home and how to get top dollar. But on the other side of that conversation is the conversation with buyers. They want a good deal right? They should actually be out there looking for those houses that are NOT staged. Buyers want to try and look through all the clutter, mis-matched furniture, dings on the walls and ugly wallpaper - these are good things for buyers really...the buyers savvy enough to see through all that! The good news about ugly furniture is that the seller will be taking it with them! (0 comments)
