Another SOLD! This cute little house listed for $439,000 and sold for $500,000. The sellers originally wanted to list with an out of area agent/friend who had no idea what the market in Glendale is like! Choosing the right REALTOR makes all the difference!
Holy cow, there are only 8 properties currently for sale in the 91201 zip code! The highest priced home is listed for $3,750,000 and the lowest is $470,000. By the way the highest sale price in Glendale so far this year was $3,450,000 which was actually in the 91208 zip code located at 1424 Glencrest. Are you thinking of making a move? Call me today!
As most of you know, I purchased my first home when I was just 22 years old. I had a little help with my down payment so I can’t take total credit for such a big accomplishment but I can take total credit for having the initiative to do so. Over the years I have worked with many first time buyers. Most of them have established themselves in the grown up world. They have good […]
A couple of years ago I was at a home inspection in Glendale. I was representing the buyers and the listing agent was at a “seminar” for the day so she sent her 18 year old assistant instead. During the inspection our inspector accidentally hit a brittle PVC fire sprinkler pipe in the attic with his knee. Needless to say there was water everywhere! The listing agents assistant was given strict instructions not to bother […]
Just when you thought that stainless steel appliances where here to stay, white makes a come back! That doesn’t mean that stainless steel appliances are out of style. Most kitchen designers will tell you that they won’t be going away anytime soon. I prefer to stick with the things that stand the test of time rather than worry about keeping up with trends especially since home improvements tend to be expensive. I think white appliances […]
One of the things that is so great about my son and daughter in-law living downtown is the fact that there are so many amazing places to eat. Last night my son managed to get his wife away from work so that she could join us for dinner at Officine BRERA. They have been wanting to take me there ever since it opened. Officine BRERA is the latest Factory Place Hospitality Group concept from restaurateur […]
Just the other day one of my long time clients told me that she saw several bad reviews for another Glendale agent on YELP. I have to admit, the first thing I wanted to do is read the bad reviews, which is exactly what I did. But should a home buyer or seller really count on YELP reviews when choosing a Realtor? HECK NO! It may come as a big surprise to some of my […]
One of the many things that I love about living here in Glendale is that we have so many different types of architecture throughout the city. I have always loved this charming Saltbox style home on Allen. Not only do I drive past it daily, I actually attended high school with someone who used lived there. The Saltbox-style home isn’t very common here in Glendale but I have spent quite a bit of time in […]
When I was a kid my mom always used to say “anything worth having is worth working for” I apply that to my real estate business. For some crazy reason, a lot of people think that this is an “Easy Money” business, but nothing could be further from the truth! Here’s a perfect example, I just closed escrow on this Adams Hill home. I met the sellers two years ago at another Adams Hill listing […]
This home on Virginia Avenue just hit the market last week for the first time since 1961. Not only did I walk by this home almost every single day of my childhood, I spent a lot of time in this house too. I grew up on this street and I knew just about every family on my block. Glendale was such a great town to grow up in. My siblings and I walked to school […]
