home values: What is the Value of my Portola Hills Home.. September RE Snaphsot - 10/04/16 09:40 AM

home values: June Home Values for "The OC" - 07/24/16 01:42 AM

We have officially entered into Fall in Portola Hills... Halloween has just passed and Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner. But I have to say Fall is my favorite season in PH...  Why the weather begins to crisp up, the house is decorated cozy and I can put on a nice pot of soup or something else yummy.   It just feels "homey" time to me!!
