Speechless Sunday: So what are your gas prices looking like in your neighborhood compared to this photo? I heard prices dropped two cents so I ran out and filled up right away:))Check out the final price for the fill up.... not long ago I remember complaining that the same amount of gas cost me $49+ dollars. So there comes a time when we should not complain, but accept that this is 'the good old days':)) on a side note not wanting to age myself but I remember the good old days, when regular gas was 20 cents per gallon and high-test was 25 cents..... the year was 1967:))Just for fun feel free to post your neighborhood Gas Prices and or photos in the comments.Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

Agent Image Real Estate Websites seemed like a great choice a couple of months ago to rebuild my company website, we are now about 2 months in and the first page is not ven complete but they have the money.Michael or Mike Helo my sales representitive at Agent Image told me being completed by Feb 1st 2021 would be no issue; he won't take my calls; in fact I believe he has hung up on me 2 times; once he knows its me and my complaint he hangs up, does not call me back. If you are considering Agent Image for your real estate website BE CAREFUL; Michael Helo will say whatever he can to get you to sign the contract, he comes off as a very helpful and caring guy but after you sign with Michael Helo with Agentimage he simply does not care and may not take any of your future calls, I think the s...

It wasn't long ago that El Segundo home sales over $2,000,000 were an extreme rarity.  Unlike the real estate in neighborhing Manhattan Beach, El Segundo isn't known as a luxury market but that's changing.In 2013, 2014 and 2015 there was only 1 $2.0+ home sale each year and the common denominator was very large lots.  The home in 2013 was land value and the 23,000+ foot lot sold for $2,000,000 which happened to turn into 12 townhome that all sold between the high $700s and $800s. (now that's a nice return) 2016 was the first year where this luxury price range started to be a bit normal in El Segundo with 5 home sales over $2,000,000.   After a slow 2017 there were 6 homes that sold in 2018 and 10 $2.0M+ home sales in 2019.

What a year it was in El Segundo CA for 2019.  There were 139 homes sold on market with a fairly amazing  10 homes selling for over  $2,000,000.  It wasn't long ago that we posted an article as to whether El Segundo could support a $2,000,000 + listing.  The  median list price of $1,159,000 and a median sold price of $1,152,000 was indicative of a very strong sellers market. That doesn't appear to be changing anytime soon as inventory is so low with only 9 homes for sale in El Segundo to start the year.  As is pretty typical, the 7 lowest priced  sales of the year were in the Pacific Sands condo complex at 770 W Imperial.  The top priced sale of the year was $2,550,000 at 719 Maryland which was a new construction 5 bedroom single family home in a pretty ideal location in the heart of th...

There are slower times of year, but December and early January is extremely slow for real estate in El Segundo.  As of the first day of 2020 there are only 7 active homes for sale in El Segundo.  Compare this with last December with 27 homes on the market and you get a pretty idea just how little is for sale.  This is the lowest number of homes for sale in the past 7 years which is pretty amazing given that it's such a great time to sell.  Hopefully we'll see a change in 2020!Current Homes for Sale in El Segundo CAHere's a chart of the last 14 months showing just how low the inventory has dropped in the El Segundo real estate market.

El Segundo California.   Offering a small town charm in the South Bay and Beach Cities.Why Do People Live here?El Segundo is a small coastal community equally renowned for its quaint, small town atmosphere as well as a thriving business environment that caters to some of the region's most prestigious corporations. El Segundo is a very popular place to purchase a home due to the small town atmosphere, proximity to the beach, and award winning schools.  Some of small town activities include the little league parade, 4th of July community party, shuttle to North Manhattan Beach, Christmas Parade and the El Segundo Farmers market on Thursdays from 3-7 on the 400 block of Main Street.  There is also some great craft beer breweries.  The schools are great and the city embraces the concept tha...

The other day I was heading back from Manhattan Beach and I noticed a 'Sadwich Sign', that did not look like a typical directional sign to lead you to an Open House. Hence I continued driving, but slowed down to see what was written on the next sign.Most of us Realtors know when there are 'Sandwich Signs' at an Intersection of two streets, we can anticipate seeing more Signs. Clearly that is what we do when we hold Open Houses. We try to put as many directional signs to lead potential interested parties to our Open House. Hence my curiosity was peaked. Well see for yours self! Now interestingly enough instead of just accepting the Sign for what it is and brushing it off that: Well what do you expect this is Los Angeles after all. My curiosity was even more peaked. Generally I do not exp...

The other day I was in El Segundo, trying to buy a Gift Card for one of our friends for her Birthday. I was  in a rush, but I stopped in my tracks when I saw this great Hummingbird drinking from the fountain. Usually I see them flying and exhibiting a lot of energy. This one was peacefully sipping water and sitting on the edge of the fountain. Well see for yourself! Hope you can see her. Well let me try to enlarge the picture here:Love watching Nature at work and in such a large metropolitan city, there is a lot of wild life if you keep your eyes open and look around... 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 out to me directly!If you are looking for a pet friendly ...

What is PCM? I have been getting weekly emails that I found very interesting. It is all about new innovations, new technology, new computers. Clearly I read the emails with interest and deleted them as they kept coming in my inbox. The other day I received a lunch invitation to to the Microsoft Campus in Playa del Rey.Now they had my attention: Windows 10 What’s Next?  First I have not downloaded Windows 10 on my Laptop, I was waiting to hear about the bugs and the kinks to be worked out before I came aboard. Now my curiosity was on high alert. Who is PCM? So a bit of research and I discovered that:PCM, Inc. is a value added direct marketer of technology products, service and business solutions and the list goes on and on. Turns out they are in El Segundo, CA where all the companies tha...

Black Mass the Movie: a short review. For those of you who know me a quick refresher in case you forgot. Diane and I moved out from Boston, MA about 18+ years ago. Having lived in Boston for ten plus years I followed the Bulger Brothers Billy & Whitey with great curiosity. Keep in mind one on paper was the upstanding local boy who made good and became the most powerful politician in Boston, MA. His brother the polar opposite, a graduate of Ft Leavenworth KS and  Alcatraz, CANeedless to say when the Boston Globe made him front page news I read it with great interest and continued reading as the drama was unfolding. Ironically we moved to Los Angeles in the midst of all this... The news became fewer and fewer.... and long and behold when the News broke that Whitey was living in Santa Moni...

322 Sierra St Income Property in El Segundo, CA90245 SOLD! Listed at $1,385,000.00 SOLD for $1,350,000. The proprty had ocean view and consisted of two buildings. One a Single Family Residence the other consisted of three one bedroom one bathroom Units.Property is conveniently located to LAX and the Military Industrial Complex of El Segundo, CA. The transaction was a bit challenging since we are so used to having Internet, DocuSign technology and the list goes on and on. Well the Seller did not have a Cell Phone, he also does not own a computer nor does he have an email address. Anyway you get the idea at the young age of 84 he did not feel the need to invest in such technology so meetings were face to face with paper and pen! Even the Escrow Officer came to his home to sign the Escrow ...

The Billion Dollar SPY by David E Hoffman:  a book review....I must disclose, I was in the US Army  stationed in Germany during the period of 1978 to 1983 and during the span of this time period, the most significant US intelligence operations was taking place in Moscow right in the heart of the Soviet Union. Hence when I saw this book as I started reading the inside flap, I knew I had to have this book and read it immediately.The story is about Adolf Tokachev and the story unfolds from 1978 to 1985, during this time period the engineer overseeing radar development in the Soviet Union’s Defense Institute. He passed information on that one cannot put a price on. The money and time  that was saved on Research and Development alone is difficult to calculate.The information Tolkachev provid...

On the road in Los Angeles: check out this license plate! As most of you know, as a Los Angeles Realtor we are often driving in traffic and our eyes catch various things. I have a tendency to notice  License Plates, especially when it is a Vanity Plate. Here is another one for everyone's enjoyment. I got a good laugh out of it. The funny part was it was a young couple driving it. I wonder if they were borrowing Dad's Car??     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 at 310.486.1002 or homes@endrebarath.com or visit one of my websites  a...

El Segundo is a fantastic community oriented city in the South Bay. It offers a great small town feel, charming downtown and Main Street areas, award winning schools and proximity to the beach. From a real estate perspective, however, parts of El Segundo do have their challenges....and it's all about the location. The challenge El Segundo has is that it happens to have some less than appealing neighbors. Directly to the north lies LAX, or Los Angeles International Airport. To the west lies the Hyperion Waste Water Treatment Plant. To the south lies the Chevron Oil Refinery (although the areas nearest to the refinery of primarily commercial) and to the east is a relatively busy, but nice commercial and retail corridor with high rise buildings, hotels and strip malls. Although each area m...
