Silver Lake Mid Century Modern in the Moreno Highlands There were a lot of great new listings open to look at this afternoon and this Silver Lake Mid Century Modern in the Moreno Highlands was one of my favorite.   You do have to manage to some stairs to get to it, but that affords the great views of the Silver Lake Reservoir and mountains.  It's also more private than some of the neighboring homes since it is nicely situated above the street. Have you been looking for a family home within the boundaries of Silver Lake's coveted Ivanhoe Elementary school?  This mid-century gem could be just what you are looking for.  It has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths in 1,750sf or so and the lot is pretty big at 8,624sf.  Unlike some homes in the Moreno Highlands, this one has useable back yard space with F...

Another Foreclosure Avoided- Short Sale Testimonial- Because of the nature of Short Sales, it's rare to get a seller who wants to talk about their process. Generally speaking they just want to move on, and rightly so. We are grateful that Victoria has take the time to say a few good words about Luis Montejano. Here's what she had to say...   Luis Montejano saved me from foreclosure. He went the extra mile with me and I felt like he always had my best interest at heart. Luis was a real professional when it came to negotiating with the banks and I really believe it was his persistence tempered with diplomacy that pulled us through the day. I don't know what I would have done without him. I highly recommend Luis Montejano of Munson Realty for sellers who want to avoid foreclosure and do a ...

Challenging Los Angeles First Time Home Buyer Gives 5 Stars to Luis Montejano-What can I say, I work with the best. Read for yourself and see what Susan thinks about my associate Luis Montejano on YELP. Good Job Luis!   I worked with Luis for a year searching for my first home. I made about 9 offers over the course of that year and finally in December 2010 went into escrow. I was not the easiest client to work with during the house hunt. I kept changing my priorities, and I even had ambivalence about staying in Southern California. I tried to keep my uncertainty from Luis because I didn't want him to stop working with me, but eventually I divulged my angst: I couldn't ask for more support from him. I used to kid him he was my realtor/therapist. Luis was never into the hard sell. Instead...

What Should I Do With My Unused Building Supplies? Today, my partner Judy Oroshnik and I were out looking at property when she informed me she had to go home for a few minutes.  We had to go meet a delivery guy (actually he was picking up) from ReStore, which is the San Gabriel Valley HABITAT FOR HUMANITY store. Judy had done a renovation to her property a couple of years ago and had a bunch of boxes of ceramic and travertine tile lying around... taking up space in her basement.  She decided rather than have these items sit and accumulate dust, she would find somebody who could put it to use. (She actually asked me if I wanted it first, but I knew it would end up collecting dust in my place, too, so I declined).  After searching around on the internet, she landed on the Habitat for Huma...

Los Angeles First Time Home Buyer-Be Prepared! Luis Montejano, First Time Buyer Specialst, offers these tips to prepare Los Angeles Home buyers for the Loan Approval Process. First time buyers today should be aware the financing process by nature has changed from 3 years ago. The documentation can be overwhelming but if they turn the items in early, things will usually run pretty smoothly. Keep these tips in mind. Deposits always have to be paper trailed all the way to their source. Yes, it's cumbersome but if the client can't prove the source then that account and the money can't be used Cash Deposits are like death. This is the biggest pain for Lenders, having to chase down multiple deposits from multiple accounts. The ideal situation is someone who has an account with no money moveme...

Munson Realty Southern California Real Estate is proud to have Top Notch Realtors like Luis Montejano on our side, especially when it comes to working with First Time Home buyers In Los Angeles. Here's what First Time Buyer Joe had to say about Luis... It's times like this I wish you could give 6 stars on Yelp.  Luis is the Superman of Realtors.  I recently purchased my first home in the Silver Lake / Echo Park area, which I discovered was an exercise in extreme stress and uncertainty.  The house, while gorgeous on the outside, turned up with a number of issues during inspections.  Luis told me when I should hold my ground, what I should budge on, and what I could reasonably expect...

        Driving around town all day?  Treat yourself to a 15 minute vacation and stop by the Soda Pop Stop.  Not only do they have all the delicious classics (usually with sugar cane, and not all the nasty additives that most sodas have) such as grape soda, a flurry of rootbeers, and any other kind of flavor you can imagine.  They also carry tons of imported sodas like this Austrian lemonade (pictured). Get yourself an old fashioned egg cream soda, or a caffeine/guarana loaded kosher energy drink (pictured)! My favorite idea by far though (listed on this site) was a new take on an old classic. Instead of a bouquet, bring the foodie you love a dozen rose sodas on Valentine's Day! This place truly has everything- Organic sodas, non-carbonated drinks, sarsparillas, preservative free, gree...

Silver Lake Mid Century Modern with Terrific Views 1758 Rotary Dr. in the hills above the Silver Lake Reservoir has some of the best views I've seen in the area in a while. Not only are there views of the reservoir, but there are great views of the Silver Lake hills and a spectacular view of Downtown Los Angeles as well. The house has an easy, open floor plan and is bathed in light.  It's a 60's mid century modern with cool wood beamed ceilings and walls of glass looking out over Silver Lake.   The home is entered through an enclosed front patio which faces the kitchen making for great indoor outdoor flow for entertaining. The master bedroom feels gigantic with sliding glass doors opening to the balcony which runs along the back of the house and affords those fantastic Silver Lake Views...

If you are in the market for a Silver Lake condo- there are several newly listed units There are a number of newly listed Silver Lake condos open this week that I was able to preview. The five condos I saw were in various parts of Silver Lake, all 2 bedrooms and range in size from 1,202 to 1,692 square feet and priced from a low of $349,000 to a high of $769,000. The best deal by far is unit 202 at 2929 Waverly Drive. This is a great sun-filled 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit situated in one of the best areas of Silver Lake. It’s within walking distance to Edendale Grill, Trader Joes, and a multitude of Silver Lake shops and restaurants. It’s also located in Silver Lake’s coveted Ivanhoe Elementary School district which is a short walk down the hill. The unit has tree top view and a partial view...

  Charles Fleming has written a guide book of the LA Stairs to reveal the Los Angeles cityscape: more than 200 stairways across the hilly sections of the city, many of which are remnants from the days when most city residents depended on streetcars and buses for transportation. Containing more than 40 walks and detailed maps, this handbook highlights the charms and quirks of this quintessential feature of Los Angeles’ development and chronicles the geographical, architectural, and historical features of each staircase and the neighborhoods in which the steps are located. Rated for duration and difficulty, the circular walks deliver tales of historic homes, their fascinating inhabitants, and troves of historic trivia—such as where William Faulkner lived while he wrote the screenplay for...
