california: Memorial Day Weekend Events 2022 in California - 05/21/22 12:15 AM
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.

california: This Is Me by Tony Lewis - 05/02/22 07:32 PM
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.

Dear Friends, Family & Clients,
Home affordability in Los Angeles County has plummeted to about twenty percent.  You’ve heard the saying; “History Repeats Itself” well we should all be aware of what happened the last time prices rose at these rates for three years in a row.  Home prices rose twenty-eight percent in 2006, twenty-two percent in 2007 and eighteen percent in 2008.  This was followed by a nearly fifty percent drop in prices in many communities in the subsequent years.

california: How the internet changes real estate from 1996-2022 - 01/19/22 07:54 PM
My real estate career began in November of 1996.  That year marked the start of the transition from Dot Matrix to reliance up the internet.  The good thing for me is I never really had to learn the dot matrix system and my career aligned with the innovation of the internet.  I became the go to agent for those that had been in the business for many years.

california: Are We in a Real Estate Bubble? Prices on the Rise Few Homes For Sale - 02/06/21 09:17 PM
​​Dear Friends, Family & Present and Past Clients,
It has been quite a while since our last Newsletter due to the uncertainty we have been facing due to rising prices and Covid-19 concerns.  A bubble can burst instantaneously once prices surpass value.  This is evident in the stock market with what happened last week with Gamestop.  However when it comes to home values the value is based upon the prices that a willing seller and able buyer agree upon.  The value has nothing to do with real value, just perceived value.  There are too few homes for sale for the amount of … (4 comments)

california: Labor Day Weekend, the End of a Sad Summer - 09/02/20 08:08 PM
​​Happy Labor Day,
What a sad year for all of us. We have been forced to live life as if we were a third world nation. Masks, home-bound, no indoor eating at restaurants, small businesses going bankrupt, many businesses hanging on by a thread, hospitalizations and loss of life is hurting our American Spirit. The Stock Market and Real Estate Market remain strong.
Labor Day Weekend, just like Mother's Day, Father's Day, Memorial Day & Easter will not be as enjoyable of events as we usually enjoy. We, as Americans, will keep our eyes on the future knowing that better days are ahead … (14 comments)
