real estate: A Rainy Day Brings a Big Surprise to the Top of the Star - 12/07/13 12:25 PM
A Rainy Day Brings a Big Surprise to the Top of the Star

Down the street from my house is a huge ranch, Fasination Ranch, and the front of it has these tall hills facing the street below. High on the top of one of these hills is a large pole and the owners have this beautiful and enourmous star that flashes blue at night.
 
Today we were having heavy rains all day. While driving home, I noticed the pole had a visitor on the top of it. Yes, a large red-tailed hawk was perched on top.
 
 

The rain didn't seem to phase him … (6 comments)

Go to Tuesday Morning for a Great Shopping Experience
 
I love to stop in at Tuesday Morning as I always find something very unique for my home or gifts for friends and clients. I have bought so many great things at the Redlands store; dog outfits, lamps, area rugs, lines, towels and pillows, Christmas decorations, comforter sets and so much more. Tuesday morning has great prices and carries good brands instead of cheap products like some of the discount stores do. Stop in and see for yourself.

real estate: "Frosty the Snowman" & 'Yes Virginia"-Watch TV with your Kids Tonight - 12/06/13 11:12 AM
"Frosty the Snowman" & "Yes Virginia"- Watch on TV with your Kids Tonight
Be sure to watch these shows on TV tonight, December 6, 2013 from 8-9 pm on CBS.

Frosty the Snowman is an animated adaption of Romeo Mueller's story. This is a story that many of us have been watching for years. I personally love to watch this every year when it appears on TV. I find myself singing the song "Frosty the Snowman" for a day or more. One great thing about this show is that it is narrated by Jimmy Durante.

Do Not Forget to Pay Your Property Taxes by December 10, 2013 or they will be LATE!
Do Not Forget to Pay Your Property Taxes by December 10, 2013 or they will be LATE!
Sometimes it is so confusing as to when your property taxes are due or if you just bought a home, the tax bill may arrive late but they will still charge you the penalties so make sure you stay on top of the due dates.
As a recommendation: To avoid having the title company hold funds at close of escrow, instruct your sellers to pay the … (6 comments)

An Egret is Living in Loma Linda this Winter

Every time I drive across this bridge there is a bird looking at me and not phased by the cars driving by as we are almost as high and we could almost reach out and touch him. So recently I stopped and took a picture. He didn't even bugde but just sat there looking at me like saying "Can We Talk?"
 

A face only a mother could love.
 

I am adorable and I know it.

Today I went to my favorite mall in Costa Mesa as it is a fantastic place to shop. It has many great stores, 5 large anchor stores and across the street it has even more stores including all the major home stores.

Dishing Up About an Escrow That Almost Didn't Close- Sad but True
 
Recently I had a cute little house that a seller contacted me to sell. I had it listed the next day and received 5 offers immediately. The sellers selected one and viola...we are in escrow. It had happened so fast that the PRELIM had not arrived before we opened escrow as I usually get to review it for any RED FLAGS ahead of time.
This was an older home and had 6 liens on it and most were from the 70's. … (6 comments)

I am a Southern California Realtor and have a wide variety of interests. First of all Real Estate is my real love and focus point but I do have Hobbies. I am interested in Photography; Nature, Landscaping, Lunar and Solar Phases, but Birds are my favorites. I also enjoy scrapbooking, blogging, and traveling; beaches, deserts, and mountains. I am also involved in the community organizations and charities. I care about the Inland Empire and making it a better place to live. I write this daily blog composed of nature, real estate news and interesting stories in Southern Califoria and other places across the United States.
