That's right, we love our new location at Preferred Home Brokers! We moved almost thirty days ago and despite the fact I'm still working on a folding table (in my office) among a few boxes here and there, it's beginning to feel like home. Moving a business can be somewhat like moving into a new house, it's taking a little time to become adjusted and meeting the new neighbors. Yet at this point we're so glad to be here, it's a great location for many of our agents and clients alike. Our new home is located at 3230 E. Imperial Hwy, Suite 125 (ground floor) in Brea, California. We're in the tri-city area of Brea, Placentia and Yorba Linda. We're just minutes east of the 57 freeway and the Brea Mall. If you're in the area we'd love to have you stop by and and say hello. We have the same tel...

La Mirada, CA is one of those cities in So Cal I love working in for so many reasons. The location is just one, La Mirada is very well located in the suburbs of in Eastern Los Angeles County. Orange County is nearby just to the east. The city is lined with tree-lined strees, you can find olive trees everywhere. If you lived in La Mirada you would be one of about 50,000 folks living here. Commuting work you would include easy access to the 5 and 91 freeways to the south. The 605 freeway is to the west and 57 to the east. La Mirada is also home to the well known Biola College, a private Christian University.

If you enjoy touring neighborhoods with amazing Christmas Lights displays, you will definitely want to add Eagle Hills in Brea to your "To Do List"! This spectacular neighborhood in Brea is located at Kraemer and Birch one block north of Imperial Highway. You will not be disappointed by the hundreds of homes decorated with Christmas lights and creative displays. I would encourage you to dress warm and park your car nearby and walk the community to really take it in. Pack some hot chocolate and bundle up the kids and load them in their red wagon and stroll through this winter wonderland of lights! Let me know what you think of the awesome lights!
