The South Bay and Beach Cities has been in the midst of an incredible market for several years now.  Formerly unheard of prices are now the norm and values are astronomical as the demand just doesn't ever seem to lessen.  Demand for real estate in the high end cities of Manhattan Beach and Hermos...

Many of my clients come to me looking for a gated community in Manhattan Beach.  They are often looking for the ammenities and security that a gated community provides and are often moving from something similar.  If you're looking for a gated community in the luxury city of Manhattan Beach your ...

Bank owned homes are pretty rare in Manhattan Beach and the South Bay these days but the occassional home that comes on the market always seems to look the same. I understand that people were forced to leave the home without a choice so it's not surpising to see some damage, things removed, etc. ...

It sometimes amazes me just how fine a line it is between receiving multiple offers and having a home sit on the market.  As perception is such a big part of real estate, buyers often clamor to the newest listing.  I'm frequently asked how many offers we already have and are we going to wait a fe...

.....a balanced market this is not.  I'm fortunate in that I work in a very high end, high priced market in the South Bay of Southern California and highly demanded coastal communties of Manhattan Beach, Hermosa and Redondo Beach.  Our market doesn't seem to follow national trends and what's happ...

There are a lot of aspects to my job as a realtor.  Stager, negotiator, networker, marketer and I've even cleaned windows in the past when necessary.  Yesterday was a new one....I wanted to get a home slightly cleaned up for my buyer (it's been an endless probate sale so it's not going to be too ...
