los angeles real estate: There are some people who are always just lucky.... - 09/12/21 10:10 PM
I am sure you have heard some people complaining by the water cooler that "some people are always lucky..... I always laughed and smiled when I heard these discussions. My take is I have always been lucky in my life. How lucky am I for being one of those people.
 
  "...Before anything else, preparation is the key to success..."  Alexander Graham Bell...
 
Now just to be clear, I have always believed, that luck is the residue of hard work, preparation and the right mindset.
 
So with that said here is some preparation for our late afternoon early evening dinner.
First the appetizer needed to … (13 comments)

los angeles real estate: Have you ever heard of YellowSack? - 09/07/21 11:48 PM
Well just to be clear a night or two ago I saw my neighbor across the street  put out two big bags and they were Yellow and had written on it YellowSack... I did not think much about it. I saw him load dirt into it... later in the evening I saw a potential scavenger stop and look what was in the bags and drove off disappointed....
Now with that said the following morning I saw this huge truck with YellowSack painted all over it and a big crane loaded the bags in the truck.
Fast forward a few days later, I ran … (14 comments)

los angeles real estate: 4525 W 12th St, Los Angeles CA 90019-3032 SOLD!!!! - 01/30/21 10:23 PM
4525 W 12th St, Los Angeles CA 90019-3032 SOLD!!!!
All sales are important, but some sales are special. This listing was an Active Rain Referral! One seller was in Texas, the other seller was in Pennsylvania and the third seller was in Wisconsin. 
Then to boot it was a Probate Sale with Court Confirmation. It was a roller coaster ride not because of the sellers or the buyers, but because of the Attorney representing the sellers. In spite of that the buyers and the sellers were probably the nicest people I have met in my Real Estate career. They were all on the … (47 comments)

los angeles real estate: Speechless Sunday: What a powerful message - 01/24/21 10:45 PM
One of my  clients of 20 plus years ago wrote this post on LinkedIn I had to share. It is such a powerful message. 
Just to give you an idea I sold his home in Los Angeles and he moved to Arizona when it was not hip cool and trendy. He had a vision with the proceeds he bought a lot of rental properties.
Would you like to guess what kind of car he drives nowdays?? On a side note I am happy to call him a friend after all these years...

los angeles real estate: Thanksgiving 2020 is in the books: not your usual Thanksgiving... - 11/29/20 11:42 PM
Thanks to California Pandemic Lockdown Protocol Thanksgiving was a bit different.... needless to say we were all still 'Thankful' for the abundance of love and food we received. I will not post anything more about it with the exception of these two pictures.
 
The preperation was the same and as you can see the Turkey turned out great as well. Diane was a bit worried since I did the turkey with a different way of cooking. Not the standard way, thought it would be appropriate to change things up a bit. I use a no muss feature: The Convection Oven Feature. It … (34 comments)

los angeles real estate: When you had a busy day how about a simple Sheet Pan Chicken Caprese? - 10/11/20 11:01 PM
If you read my previous post you  know I had lost a great many hours on Saturday. So no fancy dinner tonight. I decide to make a Sheet Pan Chicken Caprese Dinner. Sounds a lot easier if you have the ingredients. Foolish question of course I did. I have been marinating Chicken Breasts in the Fridge. always shave fresh mozzarella cheese in the fridge as well. Now with that said I always have fingerling potatoes and this time I had Purple Asparagus one of my favorites and there you have it.
Little balsamic reduction while the Chicken and the potatoes are backing under 400 degrees for about 20 … (48 comments)

los angeles real estate: Speechless Sunday: Holly clearly did not like this yard sign... - 09/20/20 10:09 PM
As most of my readers know I live in Westchester CA 90045 and most of my neighbors know I am a Realtor. Now with that said two years ago a new buyer moved here from Colorado... the agent that represented him did not tell him that he over paid by a $150,000 for the neighborhood.  Diane wanted me to go over and welcome him to the community... I thought the guy was a jerk so I did not.... Needless to say two years later he has  his house listed with an other of area Realtor about $200,000 over the  neighborhood comps.
 
  Yes I … (30 comments)

los angeles real estate: Having fun reading and commenting on Active Rain and then this happened... - 09/18/20 11:54 PM
I was having a relaxing late night reading and catching up on posts from my friends on Active Rain and then this happened... the time was about 11:42pm. so I immediately asked Mr Google and evidently  the answer was it happened at 11:38pm it just took a while for the wave to get to us here in the 90045 zip code of Westchester... Well it has been a while and I am not surprised.

We have been living here for over six years, and a couple days ago we noticed so new growth than neither one of us planted. What a surprise today it opened up and we saw this lovely bloom.

los angeles real estate: Happy Independence Day, Happy 4th of July observations by Endre Barath - 07/03/20 08:38 PM
Happy Independence Day, or as it is more commonly known, Happy 4th of July - the 244th year of America’s Independence.
 
I write this Observations from a Beverly Hills Realtor's perspective with mixed emotions and trepidations. We in the U.S. celebrate our founders great visions of creating Freedom and Equality for all. I can’t help but ask in what direction are we heading?  Will we celebrate the 245th 4th of July confident that everything is heading in the right direction?
 
I ask these questions as I witness statues of our founding fathers defaced, our history being systematically erased by politicians, activists, and the media. I am concerned … (39 comments)

los angeles real estate: What does a Tea Kettle & Coffee have in common?... - 04/19/20 11:47 PM
 Three early  mornings in a row for me. Hope this will not become a habit. I have heard that it takes 21 repetition to make something a habit.
Monday I had to go to Trader Joe's as you might have read about my quest for Toilet Paper and Paper Towels. Indeed it was an early morning quest for me.
 As most of you know I am not an Early  Bird, needless to say I had to jump into Action! Diane complained  Tuesday Morning  that she smelled smoke. When there is smoke  I get called to action. Too bad it was early in the … (25 comments)

los angeles real estate: Speechless Sundays: My mother's French Salad with Eggs - 04/19/20 11:02 PM
Well almost Speechless Sundays. My mother used the make this "French Salad" around Easter time with the Eggs. So being a traditionalist I would have been remiss if I did not make it in light of the fact we had all the hardboiled eggs.

los angeles real estate: Not your standard Easter Egg Coloring Technique, but it works... - 04/18/20 11:28 PM
Not your standard Easter Egg Coloring Technique, but it works.
Too much time on my hand? Or  did  I not have food coloring? Or did I  not have the standard Easter Egg Coloring? Why would I take all this time and effort to color eggs? I am sure many of my readers will be befuddled. Now keep in mind 2020 Easter was not your ordinary Easter.
As to the WHY? The answer is simple:  it was Easter and we were and sadly as of this writing we still are in a Corona Virus Sheltering in place. Not wanting to stress Diane out that … (38 comments)

los angeles real estate: Speechless Sunday: Who said cats and dogs don't get along?... - 04/12/20 10:07 PM
Clearly anyone who has had both cats and dogs know that they do get along. All it takes is giving both equal love and attention to their needs and they will work things out. If there are issues just like with children a little disciplining goes a long way

los angeles real estate: The Personal Protection Conundrum: Observations from a Beverly Hills... - 04/12/20 08:57 PM
The Personal Protection Conundrum:
Observations from a Beverly Hills Realtor, Endre Barath, Jr.
Many California businesses have closed recently, either voluntarily for health and/or business reasons or by direct mandate of the State and or Federal governments. As the business closures continue due to the Coronavirus pandemic, I’ve had conversations with various people as I walk Holly, our rescue dog, in our neighborhood.  The conversations were contacted with proper social distancing and then some.  Most people stated that life will improve once we are back to “normal”, people will be kinder and will wash their hands regularly. Call me jaded or whatever … (117 comments)

los angeles real estate: The Quest for Toilet Paper is over thank you .... - 04/06/20 11:07 PM
The quest to get Toilet Paper is over! After four weeks of searching has been achieved!!!
Thanks to our friend Ron and Alexandra Seigel   I took Alexandra’s advice and this morning O’dark thirty I went and stood in line at our local Trader Joe’s. Amazingly enough there were two lines. One was for under 60 and  the other one was over 60 years of age. No signs, just everyone seemed to know where they needed to stand.
Foolish me, I stood in line with the ‘Young Folks’…  sadly, the Trader Joe’s representative who was directing traffic looked at me and said I am in the … (45 comments)

los angeles real estate: The new reality or Day Ten of how we conduct our real estate business... - 03/30/20 10:33 PM
The new reality or Day Ten of how we conduct our real estate business and business in general  under the California Shelter in Place order. How are you coping?
The Mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti, was the first to issue Angelinos this directive and the following day, California’s Governor Newsom followed suit. This directive of course  created numerous changes which we all had to make and continue to make as things are evolving.
Our most important role, in my opinion, is  that we need to provide leaderships to our clients. There are many who are paralyzed by the events that came upon … (27 comments)
