Santa Monica Home & Condo Sale Info by Kim & Kristine
Last year I was craving turkey with gravy.  This year I can't wait to eat the pie.  We are getting an apple crumb pie from one of our local bakers.  It's just like grandma used to make fresh and from scratch!  It will be hot with scoops of ice cream and real whipped cream with sprinkled cinnamon ...
What's true in Manhattan is true in Santa Monica, CA.  We have a LOT of all cash buyers.  They buy and pay good money only if the sale of your home has a strategy.  Make sure you don't just list your home.  Have a plan and work it with your Realtor.  You won't leave any money on the table.  Here ...

What would we do with a Sunday off?  We would swim and lay out in the sun.  Since we live near the beach it would be easy to do.  Except for being Realtors it doesn't happen to often.  Kim is showing property to her clients today and I am writing offers.  I'm not complaining.  We love real estat...
