Emergency Preparedness In Mission Viejo And Rancho Santa Margarita
In light of the recent Atlanta, GA snow storm that nearly paralyzed the city and the "Polar Vortex" deep freeze, emergency preparedness is a topic that should come top of mind.
While a cold, winter day in Southern California might get down to the mid-30s, other natural (earthquakes) and man-made disasters (plane crash, nuclear leak) might cause residents to quickly leave their homes or survive for several days without typical utility services such as electricity, gas and water or even a roof over their heads.

The South Orange County, CA market is ablaze in activity with plenty of buyer traffic but low listing inventory.

7 Must-Haves for Mission Viejo Kitchen Remodels

I get asked all the time about which remodeling items are the best when updating kitchens. According to fellow blogger, Rhonda Burgin of Burgin Construction, the following list of items are the things you should consider first when you are planning your next kitchen remodel. Kitchen remodels are popular in Mission Viejo as many of the homes were built almost 40 years ago using "builder standard" products like white 2" tile counters and basic cabinets and lighting. Many times, home buyers are looking for turn-key homes and don't want to begin a remodel … (0 comments)

BRE# 01730187 Author Bio: After many years of working in the sales business, I have chosen to dedicate my career to the real estate industry. In more casual terms, I have decided to build my business around helping people fulfill their dreams of home ownership with a very personal touch. Unlike many in this industry who "got their license to play around in real estate", I am committed to giving 100% to each and every customer. Buying or selling your home is a complicated process that requires the knowledge, skills and effort that a part time agent cannot provide. Whether you are buying your first home, moving up because of a growing family, relocating due to a job transfer, seeking that dream estate on the golf course or downsizing in the golden years, I believe it is my obligation to treat everyone with honor and respect and with the highest degree of service and professionalism. Feel free to call me to discuss your real estate needs. I promise that I will take good care of you.
