Thanksgiving is right around the corner: time to reflect and be grateful for what we have....

I have always been very appreciative and grateful for all life bought my way.  I have had the opportunity to attend the best schools. I also had the opportunity to travel the world, when I was an Officer in the US Army and the list goes on and on.

Too often I heard people complaining and I would scratch my head and mumble to myself… what a waste of energy, they should see the good things that they have. But I am digressing…

Twenty plus years ago, Diane had the opportunity to relocate and take an “Office Manager Position” for the law firm she worked for. The only catch was, it was not in Boston, MA rather it was in Los Angeles, California.

I was just settling in and starting to become established in Boston, MA as a Realtor. I thought about it and said to Diane I have no problems with the change of scenery, but it is under one condition: we are not going to pick up every few years, no matter what her job situation turns out.

Twenty plus years later, I am still a Beverly Hills, CA Realtor and she is still in the Legal Profession, but not in Management.

 Too often people make promises and commitments, but they do not keep them. I am grateful that Diane kept her commitment to me and here we are in a place that has four seasons, but the climate is mild and temperate. We do not have to shovel snow to get the car out😊

Then to boot, I have clients who are from all over the Globe and the price ranges are from the low end to the ultra-luxury prices. If I told you what the price ranges are you would hold your breath and wonder if I am telling tall stories, but I am not it is just the reality of being a Beverly Hills Realtor. If you are not up to speed let me tell you, the greater Los Angeles is the most interesting place for Real Estate. Homes are from the very low end to all the way to $250 million asking price. Vacant land is from the very low end to all the way to $1 billion dollars. It is not unusual to find $100 million-dollar vacant land on the market.

I am very grateful for being here and I am glad how things turned out.

Now if you are looking for a successful Beverly Hills Realtor in any price range, might that be in the low end or the ultra-luxury end you will get the same superb advice and client service. Please reach out to me and I will prove it to you.

If you are considering buying or selling a home, a luxury home, luxury investment real estate, luxury vacation homes, or luxury beach properties in Southern California, Los Angeles, Century City, Westwood, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Marina Del Rey, Venice or Malibu, feel free to contact me at310.486.1002 (m) or or visit one of my websites at  I am a Pet Friendly Realtor and I contribute a portion of my commission to local animal rescue organizations.

Good morning Endre.

I'm never one to stay in the same place long.  I'm ready to move, even at my age.  My wife won't have none of it.  There are times when one knows defeat...  The snow will come and I hate it...  Sigh

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. ,

I think it is great that you were able to relocate to SoCal from Boston ...and you did it for your wife Diane. That shows what a wonderful husband you are. It has worked well for you and her. What a blessing. 

Of course on the seasons.... and I think I can say this spending over 4 decades and raising a family in SoCal.  There are four seasons - flip-flop season, shorts season, almost summer, and summer. ... OH! wait a minute... flip-flop and shorts are all year long so there are only 2 seasons.... Almost summer and summer! LOL!

Hi Endre Barath, Jr., you live in a great place and most important, you show your gratitude for what you have. I miss the seasons so I travel to experience them, then I'm ready to come back to sunshine.
Life takes turns in directions we don't expect, Diane's job opportunity in Los Angeles was a great one for both of you.

As a former Officer, you know how to treat people, you're disciplined, well educated, great at selling land, and you understand other people's needs. For me, you truly are a blessing. I'm proud to call you friend.

Hi Endre - I think you're a great fit for LA, I'm not surprised you have done well there, and it's obvious you're not going anywhere. Your efforts and Diane's have given you much to be grateful for.

Endre Barath, Jr. - There's nothing greater than finding a place to set down roots especially for people like us who have immigrated & learned new languages. I'm still conflicted between California and Hawaii, but those are not bad choices.

Hi Endre! Diane's transfer was, indeed, a blessing for you both. How wonderful that you wound up in a place that you can enjoy a temperate climate and serve international clients as well.

I know you love where you live and I'd say after 20 years, those roots are firmly placed and Diane won't be taking any more job transfers!
