As most of you know my Assistant Schmoie was great we went from one showing to another no complaints, if the buyer did not want to buy the property he gave them the look and sure enough they bought. Many stories to share how wonderful he was with helping me. So here we are nine days in our home Holly loves to be in the kitchen helping, always under foot either in front of the stove or in front of the sink. Great Souse Chef.Now look at these pictures as I am trying to break her into the Real Estate Profession. Is it me or she does not seem interested? OK so what is a Pet Friendly Realtor supposed to do? How do I motive Holly to go in the business? I am looking for advice:))) If you are looking for a knowledgeable, focused and goal-oriented Realtor in the Beverly Hills area who will help ...

The Westchester, CA 90045 Single Family Market Trends Report is published. Not only do I know this market inside and outside, but I happen to be a home ownere in the 90045 zip code. Hence I have to be prepared every day what the Real Estate Market is like.Interestingly the 90045 zip code has five distinctly different pockets and the price points indicate that. Now with that said let's look at the latest statistics:As you can see the new listings are virtually identical month over month compared to the year before. Now if you look at it compared to 2016 you can see that the inventory has shrunk a great deal.The demand has clearly increased and that is indicated by the Days on Market Numbers, well see for your self:By now you can guess shortage of inventory coupled with high demand will t...

Often I end up driving on Sepulveda Blvd on my way to my  various errands, such as going to Whole Foods in El Segundo or going to Manhattan Beach to my car was.... or on my way to Redondo Beach to my Fishmonger. Anyway you get the idea. Needless to say since we live in Westchester, CA we need to get past the LOS ANGELES International Airport aka LAX. As I take these trips often I notice things on the road. Well look what I noticed on this trip. A United Airlines Plane.     Now, 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 Beverly Hills Realtor who can handle and sell the most difficult properties that no one else c...

Do you know, what year did “Merry Christmas” enter the English language? Most people are not sure…Allow me to give a little history lesson here, about the statement “Merry Christmas”. Would you believe it, the greeting dates to the year 1534 AD. (https://english.stackexchange.com/questions/214501/who-originated-merry-christmas)Most people mistakenly believe, that it was first coined by Charles Dickens in 1843 in his “Christmas Carol”. Ironically that is when it became commercialized in advertisements, Christmas Cards and the list goes on and on.Until the 1970’s the phrase was mostly used in the United States, i.e.:  this greeting or should I say this form of Holliday wishes were geographically linked to the United States. On the other hand, in England and Ireland most people greeted you...

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Easter and share some Easter moments from Los Angeles, CA  I painted some eggs, since Diane loves Hard Boiled Eggs and look what happened after she peeled them.  Her fingers were all Blue and so was the egg white. I wonder why??? The Pink ones remained white after she peeled them. Needless to say her fingers were pink, hence the picture. Once she went to Church I took the liberty and tried one of them. Well look: The Perfect Hard Boiled egg. No I did not use the Julia Child method this time:))). I am sure she would understand. I did not have the time that her recipe requires. If you are intrigued I am enclosing a link to the "Perfect Hard Boild Egg Recipe"  (   Perfect Hard Boiled Egg Recipe  )Any way wishing you all a Happy Easter!!!!If you are cons...

Well today we finally had mid 70's in Los Angeles. Well over due, if you asked me. So there was so much discussion on Active Rain in the past couple of weeks supported by numerous posts that Spring has arrived all over the country. Not wanting to be left out. I wanted to share with you this picture of a Calla Lilly that is growing in our front yard. Couple years ago as much as Diane loves this flower she wanted to get rid of it, because then our little Wiley was still an out door kitty.Now that he is looking out the window Diane can enjoy the Calla Lilly and so can Wiley but from inside out vs. outside in.So with that said Happy almost Spring to all!!! If you are considering buying or selling a home, a luxury home, luxury investment real estate, luxury vacation homes, or luxury beach pr...

Throwback Thursday: Wiley then and now…Life at a Pet Friendly Realtor’s home in Los Angeles, CA.Well, it is  hard to believe, a year ago, we were feeding Wiley our stray kitty in the back yard. Playing hide and seek with him.  Most importantly, we were concerned that El Nino was going to be a challenge… amazingly enough the Weather Guys were wrong. They missed the El Nino by a year for sure.Diane, Wiley and I are not complaining, because we managed to get to know Wiley, socialize with him as he did get to know us as well and learn to trust us.  We managed to play with him in the back yard as much as he was willing to let us touch and play with him. We build him a house upgrading him from the Teepee we bought for him. Hard to believe that he was such a loving little guy and he was gratef...

I was traveling from point A to point B and then discovered that the road was shrunk from three lanes to one. Under normal circumstances I would have been stressed and frustrated that I am late for a meeting. In case you are wondering POINT A is in Los Angeles and POINT B is also in Los Angeles less than 10 miles apart.Now when I saw this Billboard as I was siting at a Red Light, I cracked up laughing and smiling. Needless to say when I got to my appointment I had to show my client the picture I took. She cracked up laughing too and we were all on the same page.   SO if you are late for an appointment you better have a good excuse or one great picture to break the ice. Just for the record I am seldom late for any meetings. That is my training from my father and it was reinforced by bein...

How do you gage time? Better yet how do you measure time? What do you consider a long period? Needless to say these questions came up this evening, because Diane wanted to remind me that Wiley has been officially 30 days in our home.In other words he has only been here 30 days as an indoor cat. This made me ponder, how time is "relative". Wiley seems like, he has been in our home for a long time. The entire house hold has adjusted to his arrival for better or worse. Seems longer than he has actually been here.We have been now living in our home for over two years, does not seem that long. It feels like yesterday, but if we look at all the improvements, repairs and time and energy we spent here, than you realize how long two years plus actually has been.   If you are considering buying o...

Coming Soon! We all have seen these signs lately. This reminded me to ask the question: what is an appropriate time to say coming soon?When you get a listing and put your Yard Sign up with a Rider: COMING SOON! What is the time you actually dedicate for this? Also how soon after it will you hold an Open House? How soon after it do you put the Listing in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS)?Personally in the Greater Los Angeles area I have seen two days to a week which seemed like a normal time to present it to the Real Estate Community as well as to all potential serious buyers.Ironically in my neighborhood, I noticed a Sign going up “coming soon” four weeks later, still no Open House, still not in the MLS…. So I am just wondering, what is going on? I Googled the address, I also Googled t...
