Beverly Hills, CA  the city with the world famous 90210 zip code needs no introduction! The city consists of less than six square miles and many tourist have probably walked only about two square miles of it. Not wanting to bore you but when you think of Luxury Shopping  Rodeo Drive comes to everyone's mind. Thanks to movies, thanks to the entertainment industry and the Tourist the stree  is World Renown. Amazingly enough for the past  20+ years I have had the pleasure of working  as a Realtor in Beverly Hills.  I have had three different addresses One on Canon Dr, one on Wilshire Blvd. and  on Rodeo Dr. How lucky am I? People from all over the Globe come to see this wonderful city and I work in it.If you have never been to Beverly Hills, please allow me to  share with you the neighbori...

Not only homes increase in value in Los Angeles or anywhere in the United States, but so do Shun Knives....As most of you know I have a wide berth when it comes to cooking, I have always believed having the proper equipment makes a huge difference in prepping and cooking meals.Hence about 24 plus years ago I went to my favorite Chef's Store in Los Angeles..(.sadly due to the pandemic it went out of business). So I am at 'Surface' and I am looking for quality knives. The person I worked with talked me out of the German name brand you know the Twins:)!  Every one knows that is a good Chef this is not the knives to buy  and  he went further and said to me:  get these Japanese knives you will never regret it. Hence I got the Shun knives. Diane could not believe the amount of money I spent o...

Having attended some of Berkshire Hathaway’s Virtual Convention which was held the last week of March, I wanted to share Convention's motto with you - "We are Unstoppable".  Our CEO shared his belief and observation:  Take care of your clients and then everything will fall in place. You will get commissions and referrals from clients . The primary goal is to take care of them and not focus on the commission. (This has been my concept for the past 26+ years that I have been practicing real estate.)   Chris Stewart calls agents who focus primarily on commissions as 'transactionally focused' vs. ‘relationship focused’.  Those are the agents that are always chasing after the next deal while missing out on the bigger picture of building relationships and loyalty. (Small minds, small approach...

UNSTOPPABLE: Sales Convention 2021 for Berkshire Hathaway HS just finished. First time ever the Sales Convention was Virtual. It would be totally unheard of three years ago that we would have the Convention Virtually!Who would have guessed that we would have in the General Session featuring Gino Blefari, Chris Stuart and of course Warren Buffet making a guest appearance as well!Needless to say having General Sessions, Exhibitor Showcases, University Training and Invitation Only Zoom Links to various Virtual events, such as Wine Tasting and the list goes on and on.Everyone tried to make the most of it and we are looking forward to the future that this should be the one and only time a Sales Convention should be or would Virtual. So my take is we were making not only history but lemonade ...

The other day I saw a post being Featured on how to behave on Active Rain. While I  appreciate those members,  who participated and were kind enough to give it a like or a praise, I am not in agreement.  I am very selective in who I will send referrals; in a nutshell, it is someone who has the same work ethic as I do, it does not matter to me if  that person is an Ambassador on Active Rain. It is not about the points., rather it is about who will deliver the high bar of customer service that do.  Over the past 15 plus years I have been on Active Rain, quite a few agents have received referrals from me.Now let us talk about how to support other members:     Make a comment and make the comment be kind and supportive of the post. I do not mean the robo commenter who only wants to get point...

Happy 250th Birthday Ludwig van Beethoven!! Yes in December 1770, Ludwig van Beethoven was born in Bonn, Germany.When I visited Germany for the first time they just celebrated his 202nd Birthday. I was thrilled to visit one of my favorite composer's birthplace. The memory is still as fresh today as it was then. Seeing his hearing aids, his handwritten notes. Then to see some of his composition was very memorable. I would recomend anyone who loves classical music to play his 5th & 9th Symphonies to honor his birthday! Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

‘Unbroken’, by Laura Hillenbrand a Book Review by Endre Barath, Jr.Yet another book Diane has been nudging and suggesting for me to read, this one only took me 10 years to add to my ‘read’ pile. If I may add, I thought this would be another “COVID lock-down appropriate” book to read.Without too much fanfare, allow me a quick background in case you have not read or seen the movie (I have not seen the movie). The book is about Louis Silvie Zamperini, son of Italian Immigrants who settled in Torrance, CA.  Louie was an out of control terror of a child who ended up becoming an Olympic Runner with tremendous potential. He took part in the 1936 Olympics in the 5000-meter run, met Adolf Hitler and was determined to break the world record in the “one mile” event at the 1940 Tokyo Olympics (the ...

Thanks to many events that are going on in our country I found today as a more unconventional Veterans Day.Many people have called, text-ed me and emailed me just to wish me a Happy Veteran's Day and thanked me for my  service to this great country. Thank you for the calls and emails as well as text. Since you know who you are I will not embarrass you by naming you all, instead consider this as my heart felt thank you.Let me be clear, no thank yous were needed. I came to this great country in 1967 and was my duty to serve in the military. I would have felt like a "free loader", if I did not serve especially when I could give something back for accepting this legal immigrant from Communist Hungary. Turned out  I had a wonderful time at the Unite States Military Academy as a Cadet, and I ...

Learning  and surviving through the Pandemic: observations of a Beverly Hills Realtor    Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, CRS, Broker, Instructor asked us through an Active Rain Challenge what changes did we make in our business and personal lives during this time of COVID.  I addressed both questions in the beginning of the Challenge so, you might ask what more can I say? But for those that know me, you know I always have more to say! During  this pandemic we may have been asking ourselves many questions, one being what is the meaning of our life? Will we live through and survive this pandemic? Given the unpredictable environment in which we live and the mixed messages and information we receive, how can we possibly manage and figure out a strategy? (A great example of this is Justin Turner h...

As we head into month 8 of the Pandemic, with LA County still stuck in the Purple - Governor Newsom’s latest 4-tier color-coded system for tracking COVID 19 trends, it’s time for yet another update on the current Residential Real Estate Market  Activity in the Greater Los Angeles area.  For anyone unfamiliar with the new CA color coded system, purple is not where you want to be.As most of you know, land sales is one of my niche markets, and I see continued confidence among the potential land buyers with developers moving forward with their investigations and land purchases in and around the Los Angeles vicinity.  Unlike two months ago when only the serious land buyers were in the game, I am once again fielding the bargain hunter calls and emails.  Just this morning I received an email o...

I am sure some of my friends like George Souto  will look back foundly to this picture. In all fairness both of the bags were gifts one was from clearly a Yankee Fan and one was from a RedSox fan. I had it for let's just say a very long time. We had some issues ask Anna Banana Kruchten Arizona's Top Banana!  she can relate, so with that said Diane decided to get rid of both of these valuable memetoes for me and now all I have is a Picture and a Wordless Wednesday Post:)))BTW now a bad thing to have:)) compared to the real thing!!!  GO RED SOX!!!!!!!!!!!!!Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.If you are looking for a knowledgeable, focused and goal-oriented Realtor in the Beverly Hills area who will help you achieve your Real Estate goals, please reach o...

Today, as every September 11 for the past 19 years, I reflect on when our nation was in shock as terrorists attacked our country. We all promised to never to forget 9/11 and I have since correlated this event with December 7th, 1941 when the Empire of Japan invaded Pearl Harbor. Ironically, as we are still in the grips of a Pandemic shut down that has taken many lives, impacted our economy, financial markets and of course real estate, I cannot help but see the strong parallels to nineteen years ago.  Just like with 9/11, the virus was man-made and there has been much debate if it was intentional or accidental; we will likely never get to the bottom of it in my lifetime. As a Beverly Hills Realtor, I continue to monitor the situation and do my best as always to take care of my clients as...

Well I could not help myself, there was so much discussion about the missing June Blog Posts.Today I had an easy day, just like everyone else. I was curious how many blog posts did I lose during the month of June?  Amazingly enough it is very easy to find out and you can find out too.  Just follow the two steps I outlined here below.Step One:   go to the ”Leader Board”  you will see not only where you stand, but how many points and how many blog posts you are currently being given credit for. (minus the missing June posts) Step Two:  go to your profile page and on the left side you will see your statistics and amazingly you will see how many blog posts you wrote since you have been on Active Rain. Let me use my statistics:   3,367 post written  minus (-)  it   currently shows that I hav...
