.....a balanced market this is not.  I'm fortunate in that I work in a very high end, high priced market in the South Bay of Southern California and highly demanded coastal communties of Manhattan Beach, Hermosa and Redondo Beach.  Our market doesn't seem to follow national trends and what's happ...

There are a lot of aspects to my job as a realtor.  Stager, negotiator, networker, marketer and I've even cleaned windows in the past when necessary.  Yesterday was a new one....I wanted to get a home slightly cleaned up for my buyer (it's been an endless probate sale so it's not going to be too ...

My office recently announced a merger with a Sotheby's affiliate which will certainly help brand ourselves even more in the luxury market of Manhattan Beach and the South Bay.  Yesterday we had a meeting about how Sotheby's would like us to present our listings with beautiful images, stunning vid...

Off market and pocket listings are all the rage in our local Manhatta Beach real estate market.  Demand is so far outpacing supply that multiple offers, all cash offers, and offers way over list price has become the new normal.  Given the inability for many home buyers to get the homes they want ...

Motivated buyers are great.  Motivated and frustrated buyers in the ultra high demand South Bay market we're currently in are challenging.  Unfortunately whenever a "special" listing hits the market there are usually 20 or 30 buyers bidding on the home, and many of them "need" to get this house. ...

Sellers (and realtors) need to understan...

I may spend a bit too much time being annoyed at the photos realtors use to sell homes and honestly other than making us all look bad, it doesn't really impact me.   I also don't generally want to post anything negative about other realtors as I'm sure we all work hard and have our reasons. Havin...

By Keith Kyle One of the questions I'm frequently asked by home buyers is "if the market favors sellers so much, why aren't more people selling their homes?" That's a great question and unfortunately I just don't have a great answer. The theory (and hope if you represent buyers) in our area over ...

Even in high end real estate markets, realtors still post some of the strangest home photos and our market is no different.  I understand that sometimes it's a challenge to get the perfect shot, or maybe the tenants are not all that cooperative, but exterior shots just aren't that difficult.  In ...

As full time realtors we certainly work hard.  There are endless stories of clients that go nowhere, listings that never happen, marathon showings that amount to nothing.  It's likely the same for all of us, but it always strikes me just how lucky I am to be a realtor where I am.  Just like house...
