rancho palos verdes listing agent norma toering: Looking for a Home in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA? - 11/28/17 10:49 AM

 
Tuesday is tour day for new listings in Palos Verdes. This morning, the list is rather short due to entering the after Thanksgiving holiday countdown, and the seemingly permanent condition of inventory shortage for Palos Verdes and other cities in the South Bay of Los Angeles. Today, there is only one new listing I need to preview for a prospective buyer. However, on the upside, it's a gorgeous day, so perhaps as I meander along Palos Verdes Drive South, I will capture a few more coastal photos I can use on my blog to display the beauty of our Southern California … (2 comments)

rancho palos verdes listing agent norma toering: Palos Verdes Luxury Homes--Market Snapshot Sept. 2017 - 09/09/17 08:18 AM
 
 
It was exactly one year ago when my market indicator (The Little Yellow Dot) signaled a shift in the luxury home market on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. The Little Yellow Dot edged closer to a buyers' market after many months of indicating a neutral market for luxury properties in Palos Verdes.
 
September 2017 statistics for luxury residences priced over $3MM reveal the high-end home market is still locked in a buyers' market. During August 2017 The Little Yellow Dot moved slightly away from a hot buyers' market, due to a few more sales and some properties were taken off the market, thereby reducing … (0 comments)

rancho palos verdes listing agent norma toering: New Home for the New Year - 01/11/17 09:08 AM
28173 Ridgecove Court Townhouse in RPV LISTED and SOLD by Norma Toering
 
The sale of a two-bedroom townhouse in a gated community in Rancho Palos Verdes was the perfect way to close out 2016 and complete my final sale of the year.
It was a whirlwind experience; list the property week one, open escrow with the accepted offer week two, and close the sale week three.
 
Thanks to lovely clients and an accomplished team the experience and results were both outstanding. I’ll let the Seller’s words share their experience with Charlemagne International Properties:

rancho palos verdes listing agent norma toering: Just Sold--Ocean View Condo in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA - 03/07/16 12:50 AM
 
 
 
I'm going to miss showing and holding open houses at this panoramic ocean view condo located at 3200 La Rotonda Drive in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA.  Alas, all good things must end, and this one had a beautiful ending for our seller and a lovely beginning for the happy buyers.
 
The remodeled two-bedroom condo sold at the asking price of $799,000 setting a two-year record at the Ocean Terrace complex.  It was clearly a home worthy of a new record high price with its forever views and stylish remodel.

rancho palos verdes listing agent norma toering: 2015 Real Estate Trends and Stats for California - 11/15/15 03:07 AM

 
If you're in the market to either sell or purchase a property in the near future here is some insider information that will add to your knowledge of what's happening in the local and California real estate market as 2015 draws to a close.
Last week I listened to a webinar hosted by Oscar Wei, a senior economist with California Association of Realtors.  He shared snippets of real estate trends and statistics with brokers and agents in hopes this information can be used as we formulate our business plans for 2016.  At Charlemagne Int'l Properties we feel one of our primary goals … (0 comments)

rancho palos verdes listing agent norma toering: Fall Thoughts About the Palos Verdes Real Estate Market - 10/18/15 12:19 AM

"I guess we missed the best time to sell this year."  A Palos Verdes home owner who is considering selling a property recently made this statement.  
 
My reply was, "Not necessarily."  We went on to discuss the merits of listing a property during the fourth quarter of the year.  Yes, the holidays are on the way and hopefully for parched Southern California El Nino is approaching as well.  However, the real estate market rolls on through all kinds of weather, calendar events and economic ups and downs.
 
I often relate my personal story of purchasing a Palos Verdes home between Christmas Day … (5 comments)

rancho palos verdes listing agent norma toering: Priceless View from Rancho Palos Verdes Coastal Condo - 10/08/15 12:40 AM

 
How would you like to purchase a coastal property for under $1,000,000 with neighboring properties on small cul-de-sacs off the same street posting sale prices of over $6,000,000?  
 
Yes, the Ocean Terrace condos are located in the heart of the luxury home development at Trump National Estates in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA.  Charlemagne Int'l Properties recently listed one of the "prime" units in the entire complex.  Located in the front building with unobstructed ocean and golf course views, the remodeled unit oozes quality and class.
 
If you aspire to live the coastal lifestyle with resort-like amenities at your fingertips, then perhaps it's … (6 comments)

Palos Verdes Real Estate Market Report–September 2015
Often, my blog posts are inspired by my own curiosity rather than a pre-planned blogging schedule.  As I ground my morning coffee beans and listened to the sound of rain falling (rejoice!),  I found myself wondering about the number of homes for sale in various price categories.  The catalyst for this thought was undoubtedly the approaching arrival of a client in hopes of purchasing a remodeled Palos Verdes property with a big ocean view for under $2,000,000.

So this morning’s blog article is not only an update for the regular readers of … (0 comments)

rancho palos verdes listing agent norma toering: Palos Verdes & South Bay Market Indicators--October 2015 - 10/04/15 03:49 AM
 
 I wrote an article this morning on my Charlemagne Properties website updating sellers and buyers on the state of the local real estate market on the Palos Verdes Peninsula located in the South Bay of Los Angeles.
 
A glace at this market snapshot graphic might make reading the article unnecessary.  Yes, we are still firmly anchored in seller territory.  However, if you want a few more details about Palos Verdes real estate sales and listings as we head into the last quarter of 2015 click on the above link and read all about it.

rancho palos verdes listing agent norma toering: 2016 - 10/04/15 12:33 AM

The beginning of the fourth quarter of 2015, or any year for that matter, reminds me to start filling the real estate pipeline for the upcoming new year.  
 
It's pushing it to say Los Angeles has a winter season, but it's no secret most sellers who do not have their property on the market by mid-October are deferring their plan to sell until spring. It's more a matter of personal convenience than a delay due to weather conditions, as they prefer to enjoy the holidays without the added pressure of preparing their property for sale.
 
Yesterday, I received an email from a … (2 comments)

rancho palos verdes listing agent norma toering: How Many Hours Does It Take To Do a Day's Work? - 09/30/15 12:32 AM
 
 
 
I recently read the Swedes are strongly considering moving to a six-hour work day.  They plan to do this by being "...more focused and by reducing the number of meeting scheduled throughout the day..."  The goal is to allow more time and energy for life after work.  
 
The article caught my eye because I'm working on the same plan--but their story broke first.  :)
 
Since I left the Big Box Brokerage and started my own indie brokerage a few years ago, I have this unfamiliar feeling of having more time.  I know, each day has the same amount of time, but what … (4 comments)

rancho palos verdes listing agent norma toering: Luxury Home on Via Canada in RPV - 06/17/15 04:07 AM

 Even after 23 years in the real estate business in Palos Verdes and the South Bay of Los Angeles I still look forward to the Tuesday tour of new listings.
 
This Spanish style beauty was one of my favorites on this week's tour.  It's a luxury home without the luxury price tag.   With high-quality interior finishes the four bedroom newer construction home has nearly 3300 sq. ft. of living space, pool and view.  It is listed at $1,899,000.

rancho palos verdes listing agent norma toering: Palos Verdes Daily Photo--Need a View? - 05/20/15 01:21 AM

This incredible vista took this broker's "Best View of the Day" award on Tuesday's tour of new listings in Palos Verdes. The property is located in the Mira Catalina neighborhood and has a stunning view of the coastline along Palos Verdes Drive South in Rancho Palos Verdes.  The ocean view stretches from San Pedro to Terranea Resort and beyond.
 
The two-story home is priced at $1,985,000 and has some upgrades, but this property is all about the view and that's where the value is as well.  The view redefines "panoramic."

rancho palos verdes listing agent norma toering: Palos Verdes Daily Photo--Mother's Day Sea Glass Hunt - 05/11/15 03:45 AM

It's not simply a house you're purchasing when you move to Palos Verdes.  It's the lifestyle as well.  It's a given the coastal location is breathtaking.  The school system consistently ranks as one of the best in California, but lifestyle rankings are more subjective and more difficult to gauge.
Tuck this little note away in the decision making corner of your gray matter:  A hike along the coastal bluffs on our way down to the beach for our annual Mother's Day sea glass hunt, was highlighted by the sighting of two whales heading north for the summer.  The low tide allowed the … (0 comments)

Many of the parks in Rancho Palos Verdes come with a view--often a very big view!  Ryan Park is no exception since its location offers ocean and Catalina Island views.  
You really cannot escape the views when you live in Rancho Palos Verdes, and with vistas like this it's easy to see why the Palos Verdes lifestyle offers many amenities other than simply a place to call home.

The Palos Verdes Drive West neighborhood in Rancho Palos Verdes hugs the coastline and is home to many ocean front properties.  The homes of Oceanfront Estates and Marguerite Drive offer some of the Palos Verdes Peninsula's most panoramic views and homes in a coveted setting.
 
Thnk "grab the camera" sunsets and the sounds and smells of the Pacific in your backyard when you imagine living in the Palos Verdes Drive West area of Rancho Palos Verdes.

rancho palos verdes listing agent norma toering: Palos Verdes Daily Photo--PVDE Home With a View and Income Too - 04/08/15 12:44 AM
 
One of the things I like best about the east side of the Palos Verdes Peninsula is the wide variety of homes available to prospective buyers.  For example, yesterday I snapped this photo of a lovely property tucked away off Palos Verdes Drive East on a private street.  The property is hidden from view from the street, but the view is certainly not hidden from the house!
