The location between the the Arroyo Seco Parkway(110) and the juncture of the Foothill(210) and Ventura(134) freeways on the westside of Pasadena 91105 is highly convenient to abundant shopping, dining, cultural, entertainment and recreation opportunities that highlight the good life offered in the city.   Of course, each January, the street makes a significant appearance to the world as the start of the annual Tournament of Roses parade begins at the Wrigley Mansion which today is known as Tournament House.

If so, listen up you guys, you can't do any better than hiring Michael Jacobs. If I were gonna buy in South Orange Grove or anywhere in Pasadena, he's the agent to call. You should read his informative and entertaining blogs.

Hi Michael, your market continues to see low inventory and condos and townhomes along the South Orange Grove Corridor in Pasadena is no exception. Very impressive sale to list price ratio. With tight inventory buyers and sellers both need your expertise. Not an easy market turned to navigate through but you experience will attain them the right results.

Michael, I love reading about the market update on the Millionaire's Row in Pasadena CA. It's possible to purchase four homes in my area for the price of an average home in this beautiful area. Buyers and sellers in South Orange Grove Blvd would be wise to contact you for their real estate needs.

Thank you very much for stopping by and your comments on this market update for the condos and townhomes along the South Orange Grove Boulevard corridor in Pasadena.  

Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents -- there is definitely a real estate connection with the Rose Parade as early organizers wanted a way to "show off" the area.  This event could highlight the beautiful weather, the flowers, the produce and other "winter" amenities of the area to those living in colder(and often snowier) environments.  

Yes, it all comes back to real estate.
