aliso viejo: Are you thinking of selling your house at this time? - 01/11/23 08:13 PM
​​Family Friends & Clients,
Do you have a need to sell your home right away?  Jobs changing, loss of income, financial concerns, relocation, moving to a better neighborhood, larger or smaller house are many of the reasons for sudden urgency.  We have the experience to assist in selling quickly and at top dollar.  Would you like to discuss this with us? 
Rising interest rates have no effect on all-cash buyers and there are still a large percentage of buyers paying cash for the house they purchase.  This type of sale is usually smoother as an appraisal may not be necessary, the condition of … (4 comments)

The best gift many of us could hope for is a new house.  The real estate market is currently in somewhat of a holding pattern in which sales have declined and prices are stable and even declining in many cases.  Interest Rates are on a steady rise with no sign of ending in the immediate future.  None of us has a Crystal Ball but we all … (3 comments)

aliso viejo: Happy Thanksgiving from Tony & Dani Lewis and Paul & Tracy Dinkel - 11/18/22 09:40 PM
Family, Friends & Clients,
The first Thanksgiving was in the fall of 1621.  The Pilgrims celebrated their first successful harvest by firing guns and cannons in Plymouth, Massachusetts. The noise alarmed ancestors of the contemporary Wampanoag Nation who went to investigate. That is how native people came to be present at the first Thanksgiving. Today a traditional Thanksgiving dinner often includes turkey, gravy, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, stuffing and sweet potatoes. Today Americans celebrate Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday in November.  The date of the first Thanksgiving remains unknown. President Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving national holiday 1863.

aliso viejo: Are we headed to a Recession? Thanksgiving Events 2022 - 11/05/22 06:13 PM
Dear Family, Friends & Clients,
Home Prices have risen approximately 40% over the past three years.  Prices have declined about 10% since the first of the year.  Rising interest rates, out of control inflation and the Russian invasion of Ukraine are key factors causing the decline in prices.  The big question is "where do we go from here?"  The chance of a recession or soft landing remains a mystery. A great reason for optimism is that lenders learned from past mistakes and utilized wise lending practices ever since the market crash of 2008.  
Homeowners, even if behind on their mortgage, mostly have … (2 comments)

Friends, Family and Clients,
Halloween Events, Haunted House & Thing to do in California 2022
Rising Mortgage Rates continue to impose havoc on the real estate market.  This is a great time to think about your financial future.  The Sky may not be falling but the future is awfully cloudy.  The Fed is immune from the pain they have inflicted on the average citizen as their focus remains on putting a halt to the out-of-control inflation that they have caused.  There is another anticipated rate increase expected despite all of the warning of the possibility of a massive recession.  Check your financial status … (1 comments)

aliso viejo: Looking to buy or sell? How about a Halloween Event? - 09/27/22 09:16 AM
Family, Friends & Clients,
Is there any reason to buy a house with the current rising interest rates?
Rising Interest Rates have adversely impacted the purchase power of those of us hoping to buy a house or investment property.  This will most likely lead to an eventual drop in house prices as well as an increase in foreclosures and short sales.  There is a benefit to those hoping to purchase a house in the current atmosphere.  Homeowners will be less demanding and more willing to negotiate on price and repairs.  There will also be much less competition for that perfect house for the … (1 comments)

aliso viejo: Craziest Past Client Story, A Nightmare in Real Estate - 09/17/22 09:54 AM
Let me start off with a little background.  I come from a business background owning a mini-market with a deli and pizzeria.   The Northridge Earth lead to us needing to sell and find a new career.  I happened upon real estate and was already 45 years old with no prior knowledge of the field and no local contacts to speak of.  I needed to reach out and work each and every lead to the maximum.  This lead to me working with many people that seasoned agents would have ignored.
My background lead to me working with Lloyd.  The first call from Lloyd … (7 comments)

aliso viejo: It's a Buyer's Market but Sellers don't know it yet! - 08/19/22 05:09 PM
Friends, Family & Clients,
Rising Interest Rates have adversely affected housing values.  Home Showings have come to an abrupt stop.  Price Reductions as well as cancelled listings have steadily increased over the past six weeks.  However, sellers continue to make the tragic mistake of listing their homes as though it is still a seller's market.  There have been two major interest rate hikes and another that is forecast for the upcoming Fed meeting.  A homeowner wishing to sell at this time needs a reliable Realtor that knows the best price to list their home. Call us at 661-510-7975 to discuss the value … (4 comments)

Dear Friends, Family & Clients,
4th of July Events in California 2022
America is at a crossroads due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, rising interest rates, out of control interest rates, skyrocketing gas prices and division due to the recent Supreme Court Ruling on Roe vs Wade.  Homeowners may soon loosen their grip on the recent Seller's Market.  First Time Buyers and those hoping to purchase lower priced homes are now qualified for less of a loan than just a month ago.  The fewer buyers there are for the bottom rung means there will be a lower amount of move up buyers.

Memorial Day Weekend is known as the start of Summer.  However Memorial Day is a day was originally called Decoration Day. The holiday began as a way to honor soldiers who died in the Civil War, but the day now honors all U.S. veterans who have sacrificed their lives.
I am at U.S. Army Vietnam Era Veteran.  My feeling is we should not be quick to sacrifice our youth who in many cases are soldiers due to economic conditions.  We ended the draft but that shouldn't make us all Hawks.

aliso viejo: Will Rising Interest Rates Crash the Real Estate Market? - 05/14/22 11:44 PM
​​Dear Clients, Family & Friends,
We are in the midst of run-away inflation.  The Fed is determined to slow it down by steadily increasing interest rates.  Higher rates will lower the amount of a mortgage loan a buyer will be able to borrow.  This may not lower demand but increase bidding wars on lower priced homes.  My experience from the past shows that it will take several months or even a year for sellers to begin to lower their list price significantly.  
This is a time that a homeowner thinking of selling needs a seasoned, professional Realtor more than ever.  A homeowner … (1 comments)

What was your first job and what did you learn from it?I'm originally from Detroit, Michigan and in Winter I would shovel sidewalks and driveways.  I learned that it is best to quote a price instead of having they pay me what they thought the job was worth once the job was completed.  People can be cruel and cheap.
How long have you been in the real estate or related service industry?I've been a Realtor since November of 1996.  My career began with Coldwell Banker for four years and moved to RE/MAX for the next twenty years.  My partner and I opened … (7 comments)
