What’s the most important factor in a properties value? Location-Location-Location! I can’t tell you how many times I have had clients that wandered off to look at a home that was in a poor location but that had so many bells and whistles, that they didn’t even consider where the home was located. A couple of years ago I met the investor who rehabbed this house on Concord in Glendale. I had a listing […]
I will be holding this historical Victorian duplex in Monrovia open on Saturday & Sunday from 2:00-4:00, if you are in the area please stop in and have a look. This is a great opportunity for an owner occupant.
My big sister is an RN. Whenever I get sick or have an injury I call her for advice. Most of the time she gets annoyed and tells me that I am a terrible patient and to follow my doctors orders. Today, I was able to return the favor. My sister lives in Florida and recently sold her home with the assistance of an agent. Her new purchase however is a for sale by owner […]
I say the same thing every year, MLK weekend is not a 3 day holiday weekend for Realtors. If I had to guess though, I think the King would probably tell us that we should be thankful for the opportunity to work and of course I am! I was able to get my listing in Pasadena sold and tomorrow we will be opening escrow! I did however manage to sneak away to a Laker […]
I seriously can’t remember the last time I had to cancel escrow on one of my listings. I pride myself on my track record of keeping my escrows together, but 3 different escrows on the same listing? I guess there is a first time for everything, ugh! In this situation we faced many challenges. For starters there were two properties owned by the same person, both had to be sold together to the same buyer. […]
The total number of single family homes that sold last year for over $1,000,000 in Glendale was 166. That’s not too hard for a Glendale native and full time REALTOR like my self to believe. Especially when you consider the fact that Glendale is one of the most desirable cities to live in. The most expensive sale was this amazing estate on Valley View. This estate sold for $2,425,000 and was represented by Dilbeck’s Estate […]
It’s hard to believe that 17 years ago this month, I helped Charmaine purchase her very first property, a lovely townhouse in Pasadena. I was so inspired by her because at the time, she was just 27 years old and she had literally put herself through school at UCLA. She was working in the finance department at Nestle and she was determined to purchase a property. We had so much fun house hunting together, […]
What better way to start off the new year than with an open house in Pasadena! If you are in the area checking out the Rose Parade floats please stop in and see this charming and affordable home.
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Now this is what I call “the most wonderful time of year” because it’s a time of new beginnings. Thanks to all of you who helped to make last year a great year for me. I am looking forward to helping you with your real estate needs in 2016!
It’s been nearly 8 years since the Americana at Brand first opened its doors. It’s hard to imagine that there was so much controversy over the development of a place that is now Glendale’s biggest attraction. Three years ago my son and daughter in law started a tradition of seeing a movie on Christmas Day. What better place to do so than the Americana! This morning we walked around and enjoyed the holiday decor […]
