Congradulations to Miss Leah Cecil of Garden Grove!    20 year old Leah Cecil of Garden Grove was crowned Miss Garden Grove last week on Aug. 20, 2010.  Leah is a student at CSUF who plays the harp and is majoring in musical performance.  She has been involved in Garden Grove's Pageants since she was 14.  Last year she was 1st runner up, so it was no suprise to many when she won this year.  Miss Garden Grove won a $1000.00 scholarship.  The Garden Grove Scholarship Pageant is part of the Miss America Organization. Leah has already began her local position as a representative for the pageant, attending events in the community such as the Kia of Garden Grove's grand opening in Garden Grove.  Soon she will be entering the Miss California Pageant.    Way to go Leah!  I wish you much success...

Señor Short Sale Says.....      "Don't Let Your Short Sale Explode!"          If you have a home for sale in Orange County there's more than half a chance it's a short sale.  Even though a short sale can be a challenge and test your patience there are definitely a few things you shouldn't do that could cause your short sale to explode. 1.    Don't stop paying your Home Owners Association Dues        • Unfortunately a short sale can't close until the HOA dues are current; and many lenders will not pay past due            HOA dues.        • It is best if you can to keep paying your HOA dues or you can pay them at the close of escrow. The                     amount is sometimes negotiable and sometimes the buyer or lender will pay them but these issues need to be worked out when escrow ope...

This is a story about he human side of officers; no, the humanity of people.  My client was one of the officers that participated in this and shared the story with me today.  (From the Orange County Register)  GARDEN GROVE - It started as just another call.  "927-D," the dispatcher said - a dead body. Garden Grove police officer Thi Huynh, right, gives a high-five with a single finger to Daniel Villasenor, 6, during a recent visit to the family's Garden Grove home. The children's father Pascual Villasenor, 48, died of a heart attack last November. Officer Huynh, who was on the call the night their father's body was discovered in the driveway, felt he had to do something for the family. He collected money from fellow police officers and gave the children gifts on Christmas Eve. LEONARD O...

As a Fullerton real estate agent I try to make my posts professional and stick to the subject of real estate.  But alas I must make some positive comments on how proud I am of Fullerton.  Fullerton city has given all of the homeowners three new trash bins - the goal being to help us be "green" , and recycle more while doing less landfill.  Fullerton home owners now have a bin for "recycle", one for trash, and one for yard and grass waste. It seems so simple and so easy that I am ashamed that we did not do it sooner. It Works - flat out WORKS. For instance, at my house we used to recycle soda cans and the daily news paper - everything else went into the trash (or should I say land fill).  Now that has all changed - two or three times each day we walk out to the bins and separate the "stu...

This is the referral from one of my previous client.  This is a standard sale with the house that has no upgrades.  The owner of this property passed away and their 5 adult children want to sell the house and split the money among them.  They interviewed me 2 times for 2 hours each with different members of the family. Took them 1 whole month to wait for another member from out of state. They asked all kind of questions like what should they do with the wall papers, whole on the hard wood floor, kitchen is outdated with the faucet of the 1953, what color paint on front  of the house (purple)...They worte down what I advised them things to do in order to make the first impression in the eyes of the buyers with a limited budget to spend.  I even explained to them the process of the sellin...
