Snow Capped Mountains in the distance: a rare sight in Los Angeles... The last time I remember seeing Snow Capped Mountains was about 22 years ago...Diane and I  relocated from Boston MA to Los Angeles CA and when we arrived it was El Nino. Rains we have never seen before. The volume was so bad that I used to drive Diane to work to her office in Downtown Los Angeles. This was before it was called DTLA. This was during the time I was forced to re-take my  Real Estate Courses and license, because California did not have reciprocity with Massachusetts.I remember naively Diane was of the belief system that California does not have four seasons. I told her do not get rid of your winter coats etc. Gratefully she listened and the first three months she used them and thanked me every time.So he...

Images of spring in Los Angeles via blooming Trees. Most people do not realize that Los Angeles is not just high rise buildings.    The colors of these blooming trees are some of the most beautiful, almost breathe taking. If you come to Los Angeles for the first time in May, you will be pleasantly surprised at the various trees in full bloom.   The colors are amazing and magnificent, they are absolutely spectacular.

Canter's Deli a Los Angeles Institution. If you have been there then you know what I mean. If you have never been than you must schedule a time. Lucky for you they are open 24hrs and 7 days a week, so you do not have an excuse about the time constraints. If you decide to eat at the Restaurant section, make sure you bring your appetite. I am not exaggerating the sandwiches are half a foot or higher. If you have been craving for a great corned beef or pastrami sandwich, Canter's is the place. My favorite is the matzo ball soup, bigger than a Major League Approved Baseball, soft and moist as a good matzo ball should be. Now if a sit down meal is not in your schedule, than check out the take-out counter, there are always five or six people in front of you. They have everything the restauran...

Buyers Beware When Considering Buying Foreclosures!   All first time home  buyers should be very cautious when considering buying a Bank Foreclosed Property(REO). Many people get excited that they want to hit the jackpot by buying a Foreclosed home. Needless to say there are some truly great opportunities out there.   At the same time common sense should prevail. Do the research about the neighborhood, schools and market prices. Do inspect the home; banks are not required to let you know about defects. Have your financing ready.  Be prepared that the banks have priced the home generally a great deal under market value; hence it will not be a buyer's market when it comes to the property. Be prepared to be in a multiple offer situation.  Banks do not negotiate with Counter Offers. Submit ...
