The Citrus in La Quinta is a home where you will have your choice of 3 golf courses.  This can be very different from other communities that may only have one, or two options.  With 3 options, each day of golfing can be different.  You will have more of a challenge as you learn to master each course right from your own neighborhood.  Pete Dye is famous for designing award winning golf courses, and he is behind the design of the courses at The Citrus in La Quinta  There is even a challenging Mountain Course that is surrounded by the beautiful setting in this outstanding community.  The Mountain View Country Club is where many residents spend a great deal of their time.  Members have unlimited access to all courses, and each course is surrounded by the Santa Rosa mountains.  The views on...

People in the entertainment business tend to move around more than most. Consequently, I have lived in several states, and more than one city in some of those states. For instance, I lived most of my life in Pittsburgh, PA, the one place that I can always come back to as "home". And I also lived briefly in Harrisburg, PA as part of an internship in the arts where I worked with the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.Same goes for California, where I spent several years in Los Angeles as an aspiring actress right out of college. Then I returned to the east coast to actually work in stage and film for many years (go figure). But years later I returned to the west coast and spent some of the most glorious years of my life in the desert paradise of Coachella Valley.I found a piece of Paradise....

Real estate is as HOT as the weather this summer!  Check out the stats from my Realtor.com website for July 2016!  I had 3 closings in July and have 3 more scheduled to close in August.  That might be normal for most markets, but this is La Quinta, CA, near Palm Springs-- smack dab in the middle of the Mojave desert.  Our avg. temps for July were 107°!Our California Lifestyle Realty office had a better June sales-wise than our prime month of January.  What is going on?  What is spurring this summer activity in our hottest season?       It could be the upcoming election, or low interest rates.  I don't know the exact reason- but I am not questioning it.  Buyers are here looking at homes despite the heat, and sellers are listing and pricing their homes to sell.  If you are thinking of sel...
