This an old sore subject of mine and others.  If your loved asks you what you want or need for Christmas this year, tell them a fax machine if you don't already have one.  I believe every agent should have one of these baby's in their home.  They don't cost very much and are so convenient, why no...

This is a picture I took last week from the backyard of one of my listings.  This is the Eastern Brown Pelican.  The state bird of Louisiana that was almost made extinct in the late sixty's and early seventies because of DDT use.  Fortunately this endangered title was removed nearly ten years ago...

I am the buying agent on a beautiful home in Clipper Estates LA,  that had an inspection done today.  The inspection was the usual boring run of the mill stuff.  The most interesting thing to me was the seller.  He was at the inspection also.  Turns out this man was a retired Major from the Air F...
