ADU’s also known as Accessory Dwelling Units: The Hottest Craze in Los Angeles! POSTED ON JUN 21, 2019 BY ENDRE BARATH IN ADVICE TO HOMEOWNERS, ENDRE BARATH, NEIGHBORHOOD, RELOCATION TO LOS ANGELES, SELLING, WESTCHESTER HOMES | 
ADU’s  also known as Accessory Dwelling Units. They are indeed the hottest craze in Los Angeles. In my observation, there are a few key pitfalls that you should avoid, when it comes to building an ADU’s.
ADU’s are truly awesome:
   As a Los Angeles Realtor, I am all for adding ADU’s to your home.    Someone who lives in Westchester, CA. 90045,  I see the benefit of the additional space.    If you live … (40 comments)

Banc of California Stadium is one of the newest open-air stadiums in Los Angeles. It was just opened on April 18,2018. Many people do not know this, but it was the first Open Air Stadium built since 1962. If you are wondering where is this Stadium? It is on the former Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena’s location. It is directly next to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and just south of the main campus of the University of California more affectionately known as USC.
Currently the Los Angeles FC subleases the site from the university which has the master lease for operating … (7 comments)

endre barath: Pupcakes: By Sprinkles of Beverly Hills, CA. 90210 - 06/09/19 03:10 PM
There are times when one person's action causes a series of other reactions. Just to give you an idea, I checked in with one of my clients, I wanted to find out if they were going to be around the weekend? I was going to surprise them with Cupcakes from Sprinkles. As I was standing in line a discussion came about "Pupcakes" well on the spur of the moment, I decided might as well get some Pupcakes for their dog as well. As things turned out. As I was heading over to them, they canceled in the last minute.
Now here I was … (7 comments)

Instagram Punished  me @endrebarath  for being kind…
No! The reason is not what you are thinking. I was not writing hundreds of posts about Real Estate No not because I was spamming people.
Well let me give you a little background I have been on Instagram since August 2016 during this time I have posted 75 times. I did manage to build a following of about 960+/-  followers, since that number is fluid depending when you look up or down by 30+/- and I am following about 411 people.
I do not use a third party to do any of my social media posts. … (53 comments)

I was on my way to a listing appointment and was aware that my gas tank was low and would be a challenge to get home.  So with that said, I decided to stop in and might as well stop and use the facilities. When I saw this picture I had to share.
When I was growing up, my parents educated me about personal hygiene, I did not need a photographic instruction what to do after I used the facilities. This made me pause, as a society are we that bad that we can not educate our children who will be adults … (20 comments)

endre barath: 1031 W 46th St, Los Angeles CA : SOLD - 06/03/19 11:47 PM
Well as most of you know it is June National Homeownership Month and as President George W Bush declared and said:
“Homeownership is an important part of the American Dream…A home provides shelter and a safe place where families can prosper and children can thrive. For many Americans, their home is an important financial investment, and it can be a source of great personal pride and an important part of community stability.”
 
So, with that said we decided to close today on the first business day of the month... actually I am kidding.
We were in multiple offers and we managed to get … (22 comments)

Diane & I are so worried about our pets and needless to say we read a scary article about Jerky and the damage it can do to dogs... I will write about it in more detail.

Since June is Designated as National  Home Ownership Month, let’s look at the state of  the Homeownership  with the statistics, facts and reasons for the same.
As a background, some of you might not know, since the early ‘70’s there has been an obsession by pundits and statisticians to monitor and track Home Ownership Trends. As a Beverly Hills Realtor, who has been in the local greater Los Angeles Real Estate Market for over 22+ years, I always appreciate and enjoy these types of discussions. Partly because I can get a better understanding of what directions the Home Ownership Trends are heading … (34 comments)

“Next Stop Execution” The autobiography of Oleg Gordievsky a book review by Endre Barath, Jr.
This book was published in 1995 and interestingly most historians have considered that the Cold War has ended around 1991. Then may I ask, why was there an attempt to poison this former KGB colonel in 2007? I recall hearing and reading about it in the news around 2008. The word was, that rogue elements of Russia attempted to poison Oleg Gordievsky with Thallium, but somehow, he managed to survive the attempt after being in a 34 hour-coma.
This event piqued my interest, hence I decided to find … (10 comments)

My blue cheese dressing recipe by popular demand a follow up to my previous post.
There is a saying among chefs and food connoisseurs,  that the better the ingredients the better the food will be. I subscribe  to this theory and try to practice it in all my cooking endeavors. Since the dressing is Blue Cheese we need to focus on the main ingredient: The Cheese
So, with that said, let’s talk about  Blue Cheese, there are many different varieties of blue cheese to choose from.
Most people are familiar with the French Roquefort, the grand daddy of all blue cheese. This of course … (27 comments)

Every evening, I reflect as to what went on in the day and how and what I could have done better. Generally, looking back is important to me, it allows me to figure out, how I can improve my actions and plan out the next day as well as the rest of the  week.
 Today was an interesting day to say the least. Not only was it Memorial Day, but it was a day the Red Sox were on National TV and I was excited to watch them, not only … (40 comments)

endre barath: Speechless Sunday: Purple Asparagus or Green Asparagus? - 05/26/19 11:44 PM
Last Sunday I wrote about the Twelve different varieties of Asparagus and I received a great many questions what it taste like and how does it look. The list goes on and on.... so with that said. Let me show you what it looks like if you use it raw and what happens when you blanch it like I did. Or if you bake it or saute it. 
 
As you can see below, the color changes to Green and almost a Bright Green. So if you want to impress your friends put some in a salad both ways. They will think you … (16 comments)

endre barath: Memorial Day: All gave some and some gave all!! - 05/25/19 12:07 AM
Memorial Day: All gave some and some gave all!!
Memorial Day: is all about remembering those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. I have written many a post over the years about this subject.
One thing always has annoyed me when so many people confuse Memorial Day with Veterans Day. There is a huge difference,’ Memorial Day’ is remembering   those  soldiers who gave it ALL,  in other words, their lives, just so we can enjoy our freedom.
Clearly, I do not like it when people think it is about eating burgers, and barbequing. Equally I do not like it when people who … (55 comments)
