The whole ritzy look and allure of Beverly Hills, has lately been under a microscope, especially with the 2 big development projects with Hilton and Robinson's May being the center of attention. Both projects are now having their own share of set backs, one got beat in the polls by a very slim margin and the other is trying to find an alternative to its financing. But what is important is that the city has lost 2 huge revenue streams that would have given a fresh supply of oxygen to a already burdened budget. Now the Beverly Hills needs to come up with funds from elsewhere to keep up all the city services, education and development programs it is so well known for. There is a certain age group and income group that lives in Beverly Hills, that does not have the financial means or accept...

Must be Seen to be Believed One of our new favorite blogs is LovelyListing — an incredibly entertaining compendium of some of the strangest and most unappealing real estate listing photography you’ll ever see. While you, as a seller, might briefly agonize over whether to include photos of the walk-in closet or the recently-remodeled powder room, others apparently have no misgivings whatsoever about including photos featuring mold spots, mounds of clutter, weird collections, the owners themselves, their kids, or their pets. From the tacky to the bizarre to the completely inexplicable, from bad Photoshop jobs to subject matter so hideous that no amount of retouching could help, the homes featured here will provide enough entertainment (both comedy and horror) to keep you occupied for hour...

The Ugliest House in America Think your house needs remodeling? Vote for the “Ugliest House in America” We all have improvements we’d like to make to our homes — replace the countertops, refinish the floors, put in new landscaping — but few of our lists include “remove twenty-years’ worth of piled-up junk” or “repair the roof so that it actually covers the entire building.” HomeVestors, a company that specializes in buying and selling “problem homes” and properties with serious structural issues, is currently running its second annual “Ugliest Home in America” contest. The finalists are eight homes from around the country that go far beyond just “ugly” — these properties are in need of a little more than cosmetic improvements. They boast such delightful features as collapsing floors, ga...

When my brother and I started our plumbing company in Sherman Oaks years ago, we wanted to tell people more about our background. We were the Jeep Cherokee twins, and appeared in several commercials for them, as well as appearing in several movies and in the television show, Providence. We enjoyed being in the spotlight, but we firmly believe that family comes first. So when we got married and started families our priorities and focus shifted. Now we spend time with our families and continue to build our plumbing business.
