Saving Hermosa Beach Schools - 02/21/11 12:57 PM
As both a parent of 2 school age kids in Hermosa Beach and a Realtor who understands that schools greatly impact home values in our community, I attended the most recent school board meeting in which the topic of discussion was how our small school system could not last long in this current environment of cutbacks. One of the big complaints by the many parents that attended the meeting was that there hadn't been a good resource to better understand what was going on. As many parents were there because we simply didn't know what the problem was, let alone any (0 comments)
How multiple offers reveal human nature - 02/21/11 01:14 AM
I always find it interesting just how much of human nature is brought out in a multiple offer situation....I've had buyers that have seemingly been looking forever. They find a home that "would work" but they're certainly not in love with it. The minute they find out there is another offer it becomes the dream home that they've always wanted. This certainly poses a challenge for realtors as we want to give advice and assistance but it's difficult when a buyers motivation seems to change dramatically....and even more if they don't get it. As the process is often an emotional one (9 comments)

For information on any of these homes feel free to contact us or to see an updated list of bank owned homes and short sales in Redondo Beach visit our foreclosure (0 comments)
How do I make changes to my listings on Activerain? - 02/10/11 11:16 AM
I love the pictures and appearance of the listings on ActiveRain. I wish other sites would take note of just how great the high resolution pictures appear.....although I'd certainly like a lot more people to view them somehow but that day will come. I noticed today that one of my listings wasn't showing up so I went to investigate. Oddly enough one showed that it was "pending" and I'm not sure if that meant the upload was pending and it wasn't "live" or if it meant the MLS status was pending. Neither should be the case as I uploaded it a (0 comments)
South Bay Oceanfront - Manhattan and Hermosa Beach Strand Update - 02/01/11 08:18 PM
With the slow down of the luxury home market over the past 12 months, homes on The Strand, the beachfront strip of land, continue to come on the market offering a tremendous opportunity. Currently there are 6 homes listed on the Manhattan Beach Strand ranging from $6,900,000 for the home 3 bedroom home at 3112 The Strand to $30,000,000 for the sale of neighboring homes and lots located at 2016 and 2020 The Strand offering two fantastic homes or the potential ability to build something incredibly unique in Southern California with beachfront land at such a premium. In addition there are currently 2 (0 comments)
