endre barath: EV Charging Stations in Beverly Hills and Vicinity... - 06/20/18 10:35 PM
I found an EV Charging Station in Westchester, CA 90045...
OK for the uninitiated EV is for Electric Vehicles, that much I knew as well, but thought I share anyway. I have been driving by and walking by this Station a few times in the past couple months. One Day I saw a vehicle charging. Curiosity got the better of me, when no one was looking I went closer to it and took some pictures to commemorate the Charging Station. Not wanting to sound “old school” but I did not see any credit card choices like at a traditional car fueling station.
Silly … (9 comments)

endre barath: What are your thoughts of this type of self marketing?... - 06/20/18 12:29 AM
Letting people know what you are doing for a profession can make or break your business. I find it is critical that we as Realtors get the word out to the public and let them know what we do for a living. At the same time, I find it important to project a professional image in the marketing. I am a bit reserved and a bit traditional to do some what others might consider “out of the box self-marketing”.
A few weeks ago, I saw a car with the Real Estate Practitioner’s name, contact number and what he charges for commission plastered … (35 comments)

endre barath: Do you like Dates: The fruit that is? Have you considered growing them - 06/18/18 11:55 PM
 Do you like Dates: The fruit that is? Did you know where the United States ranks in the Date Palm Growing Regions of the Globe? Have you considered growing them?
Well if you did not know the answers to the questions, do not feel bad, let me assure you neither did I.
Having had to do some of the research I discovered that Egypt is the number one Country when it comes to Date Palm Productions. They are so far ahead in production in Metric Tons compared to the rest of the Globe it is hard to fathom. Let me just say, they … (26 comments)

endre barath: Jack has become the Assistant to this Beverly Hills Realtor... - 06/17/18 09:53 PM
As most of you who have been reading my posts know, that it has been a while since I had an Assistant. Quietly and unassumingly Jack has taken over the Duties.
He spends the better part of the morning, afternoon and evenings in my office. He is a dedicated companion. Funny part is he takes breaks without me being interrupted. The only time he comes back and complains is when the food bowl is empty.
I am amazed how intuitive he is. He comes over periodically just to break my chain of thoughts, if he thinks I am  not heading in the right direction. 
Just … (15 comments)

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads present and past!
Let’s be real we all had a Dad and some of you who still do take time out and either do something or say something nice to him. Have a conversation with him…ask him questions you might have been wondering about. One never knows when you will get such an opportunity again.
 
Enjoy the afternoon and spend quality time with your dad if you have one still on this earth. If not reminisce with your loved ones about your and their dad….

Speechless Sundays: It is OK to east Sushi on Sunday and even on Monday. There has been so much bad information on the World Wide Web, take my word for it if you go to a good Sushi Restaurant or a Japanese or a good Asian Grocery Store you will always find the ingredients are fresh. Now with that said if you come over to our home and I am preparing Sushi & Sashimi take my word it will be fresh! Now if you do not want to take my word for it check with  Masaharu Morimoto !
 
Now does that look fresh? … (24 comments)

endre barath: Delta Airline Project at LAX is complicated to say the least... - 06/16/18 11:48 PM
Delta Airlines has been controversial on many levels...the Atlanta Based Airline has started a $1.9 Billion dollar construction project at LAX (Los Angeles International Airport). Their plan is to tear down the buildings at Terminals 2 &  3 and build a new structure between the two terminals and add an above-ground connector between Terminal 3 and the Tom Bradley International Terminal.
 
Now, keep in mind Delta is making this sound so simple and smooth.I love it now those of you who have flown  out of LAX in the past few years might have notice or may I say got accustomed to the inconvenience of having to walk around drive … (8 comments)

endre barath: If you are considering purchasing a home are you interested... - 06/16/18 12:04 AM
If you are considering purchasing a home are you interested to know what the demographics of the neighborhood consists of? My take is that this question is usually secondary, the primary concern is if you like the home and can you see yourself living in it? Where do I come off with this idea? The answer is simple, let me use an example:
In my market in the coveted 90210 zip code there is a home on the market for $135,000,000.00 indeed it is not a typo it is $135 million. Now with that said the house 12 bedrooms and 24 bathrooms … (32 comments)

Just because Los Angeles has sunshine all year around it does not mean crime does not exists. Break-ins happen all the time. Some are published on "Next Door" now days the local bulletin board...
Now did you know what time most burglaries take place? You might be surprised to discover that:
1.  Burglars prefer breaking in early morning or afternoon.
“Between 12:30 pm and 2:30 pm. Anyone that was home for lunch should be gone by then and most kids should all still be in school,” wrote a convicted burglar.
2.  Did pets in the home, like a dog, make  BURGLAR think twice?
If a homeowner had … (15 comments)

endre barath: Did you know Flag Day is June 14th, also did you know it is Flag Week? - 06/12/18 10:53 PM
Did you know Flag Day is June 14th on 2018? Well did you know that Flag Day is not always on June 14th??
Well please allow me to give a quick refresher on the history of Flag Day.
The creation or as some people call it the adoption of the Flag was on June 14th, 1777. Now with that said it took until 1916 when President Woodrow Wilson made a proclamation to officially establish Flag Day. Since then we have been celebrating Flag Day every year. Not always on the 14th of June, it is up to the discretion of the President when … (9 comments)

endre barath: The Beverly Hills, CA Condominium Market... - 06/10/18 11:34 PM
Most people think of Beverly Hills and they think of the Luxury and Ultra Luxury Homes. I bit less known Globally, but there are condominiums in Beverly Hills as well. They just do not get the exposure in the media. Needless to say I have listed and sold many Condominiums over the years. So if you are interested how the Condominium Market is doing please continue reading...
 
 
Just like other parts of Los Angeles have an inventory shortage. Beverly Hills, CA has a huge Condominium Shortage. Not only is the Global desirability that exists, but in addition to it the Beverly Hills … (6 comments)

endre barath: The Santa Monica, CA Condominium Market Trends Report... - 06/10/18 11:12 PM
The Santa Monica, CA Condominium Market Trends Report is always interesting, since everyone from the Globe is familiar and would love to live in Santa Monica, CA. Everyone measures how many blocks from the Pacific Ocean is their home. Clearly nowdays Fourteen Blocks is considered close!
Let's look at the Inventory:
 
The average reader would be excited to see such increase in inventory.... Now in my experience this is virtually nothing compared to the huge demand. Now with that said let's see the Days on Market Statistics:
 
 
 
As you can see 14 days for the Median Days on Market is clearly a seller's market … (6 comments)

Marina Del Rey, CA is one of the best beach towns in the greater Los Angeles area. It never gets old it has a vibrant and young feel to it. I have lived in Marina Del Rey, CA for about eight years and I have wonderful memories of my time here. Needless to say always love to help buyers and sellers either move up or move into this community. So with  that said let's look at the Condominium Inventory:
 
As you can see inventory remains very tight and buyers need to be ready to step in when they see a Condominium that … (2 comments)

endre barath: Westchester, CA 90045 The Single Family Market Trends Report is... - 06/10/18 10:22 PM
One of the biggest challenges in the Westchester, CA 90045 Real Estate Market is the lack of Inventory. From a buyer's perspective it is virtually non existent. From a Realtor Perspective we get excited when it is a little bit better year over year. Clearly you can see it is still a very tight inventory:
 
I am a firm believer if you look at the Median Days on Market you can pretty much know what you will be facing if you are representing a buyer. Now if you are representing a seller it is equally important. Sellers need to plan where they … (2 comments)

endre barath: What is the hardest event you ever had to face? - 06/09/18 12:40 AM
We often look at some events as being difficult. Clearly Real Estate can bring out difficult situations and a good Realtor tries to come up with some solution to mitigate the difficulties. So with that said what is the most difficult or most challenging event you had to face? The answers will be varied...
Some people had to face a death in their family such as brothers, sisters or parents, not an easy situation to deal with and come to terms with. Everyone deals with these events differently. Some get angry, others get depressed. There is no right or wrong answer.
I have dealt … (40 comments)

Breaking News: I just have been installed as the new CEO of NAR. In case you are not familiar that is the National Association of Realtor and do not worry not NRA in other words, not the National Rifle Association.
Now, if you are still reading this post, just to be clear, it was inspired by my friend  Debe Maxwell, CRS      for an Active Rain Challenge. The request was:  what would I do if I was the CEO of NAR?
Well my answer is simple: the long-term goal would be to change the organization at the leadership level, not just preach, but also … (48 comments)
