Yesterday I participated in holding open house at the multi-million dollar Estates at Trump National in Rancho Palos Verdes.  The three homes currently available range from $4,400,000 to $12,000,000.  Some pretty lofty prices, but the location and views are phenomenal, plus the luxury homes are f...
I'm tired of reading about bad news, not that I'm a Pollyanna with rose colored glasses, but sometimes the good news is crowded out by the more attention grabbing bad news.  I don't want to read about serial killers, I want to read about organ donors who save a life instead of taking one.  I also...

Stefan Swanepoel is not the first person to call me an animal.  I've been likened to both wild and domestic animals several times in my life.  In my youth I was called coltish due to the long legs and arms of adolescence. My greenish eyes and habit of stretching several times throughout the day a...
Yippee, loan documents arrived and were signed today!  My buyer's offer was submitted in October and maybe, just maybe we will close before March begins.  Thanks heavens for a client willing to bounce back after each delay.  We nearly fell out of escrow several times, but each time we recovered a...
