Day in the Life of a Relocation Realtor in Malibu, CA.  BTW Malibu AAA is the Best! To give a quick background, I was out with Relocation Clients from China and we went to Malibu looking for homes. They were in my Lexus RX and we just arrived at our second appointment to view a home. This great home was listed at $2.8million. The home had a fantastic panoramic ocean view hence it was a priority to see it. Instead of being met by the agent, the sellers were going to show us the home. (Bit surprised that in this price point the listing agent would not take the effort to show us the home, but that is another subject). Once the sellers realized that there were two children with us and one child was about 3.5 years old and the other was 1.5 years old. Needless to say they did not want the ch...

Harry & David: have you used them?The best fruit hands down! Over the years I have received gifts from my clients and friends from Harry & David. I was always very happy with the size condition and taste. The other day we sent some gifts to my clients, so Diane wanted to know what they looked like from close up; since it has been a while since we received some gifts, she wanted to see what they looked likeJ. So we decided to go to the nearest Harry & David Store and look at the items from close up. Long & short of it, next thing you know we could not help ourselves and treated ourselves to a gift. You tell me where we went wrong? The items were 50% off normal price and the fruit looked so goodJ The fruit also tasted very good as well!    http://www.harryanddavid.com If you are a consume...

  Millions of families have discovered that a timeshare can give them the freedom and flexibility to “own their vacation”. Whether it is a vacation to an exotic location, a historical landmark, or to enjoy your favorite outdoor activity, timeshares can provide well-designed accommodations with all the comforts of home. Timeshares offer people the opportunity to own one week’s worth (a unit) of time during the year in a vacation home. Owning a timeshare can save you from paying higher future lodging costs, allowing you to have more vacation dollars. There are many factors that affect timeshare prices, similar to the factors that affect the value of any other real estate. These include property condition, size, location and the time of year. Purchasing a used timeshare can be significantl...

According to Foreclosure Radar, the September 2012 California foreclosure sales are down nearly 18 percent from the prior month and down almost 30 percent compared to last year. However, Trustee Sales are up; last year those purchased by investors were around 27 percent, while this year they have climbed to nearly 39 percent. California Notice of Defaults were down nearly 48 percent from last year and nearly 20  percent from last month. There has been speculation that an increase in the number of foreclosures could increase if the banks decide to rush to clear inventory before the CA Homeowner Bill of Rights takes affect the beginning of next year. However, that does not appear to be the case as of now, since the number of foreclosure starts continue to decline. Notice of Trustee Sales ...

Fall means a lot of things, including going back to school, raking leaves, decorating pumpkins, and eating turkey, but it also usually means home maintenance, such as replacing the kitchen sink or refrigerator or replacing carpeting and repairing the roof. The fall home maintenance and repairs are on top of all the ongoing house maintenance for homeowners.  To keep your home in top condition, there are certain tasks you’ll need to do every year. Below is a helpful fall home maintenance checklist. Clean your gutters Most single-family homes should have their gutters cleaned out once a year, typically after the leaves have fallen. But if you live in a heavily wooded area or have trees that shed leaves or flowers in the spring, have your gutters cleaned twice annually. The cost ranges from...

There is an ongoing move to conserve energy and reduce waste. Many people are starting to make greener choices, do what’s best for the environment and lessen their impact on the earth. The common phrase is “Go Green”.  There are both very simple and inexpensive steps we can all take that will add up in a big way. Bring your own reusable shopping bags to the grocery store. Plastic and paper bags both use a lot of energy to produce and end up as litter. Stash some canvas bags in your car. Ditch the Plastic Bottles and replace with a reusable water bottle and place your current bottles in a recycle bin. Billions of plastic water bottles end up in our landfills every year. Some of us already have filtered water available on our fridge, or you can use a water-filter pitcher such as Brita or ...
