I have been going to Red Carpet Car Wash since we moved to Westchester CA. They are in Manhattan Beach and needless to say six years you develop relationships. I always appreciated the quality of service they provided and at the same time I always loved the Patriotic Themes of their pictures. Sadly I always had to stop at their 9/11 tribute.  So today as I washed my car from all the Ashes and Airplane Dust, I had to stop and take a picture. In front of their tribute they had some flowers. Love their caring tribute especially in my part of the world it is a rare event! Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.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, ...

The urban area of Los Angeles (LA) is the second largest in the United States.It is composed of different cosmopolitan districts, a few kilometers near the opulent wealth rubs shoulders with misery, which extend for several tens of kilometers from east to west and from north to south, there is no "city center "strictly speaking, at least not in the European sense of the term.Bordered by the Pacific and the San Gabriel Mountains to the north, Los Angeles enjoys a Mediterranean climate.City of cinema, of Hollywood! There are also beautiful huge beaches, Venice Beach, Santa Monica, Long Beach, Malibu ... but beware the water in the Pacific is cold! It's more North Sea atmosphere than Mediterranean (beware of misconceptions!). Housing Spoiled for choice ! The big question being, in which ne...

Without question the area known as the South Bay of Los Angeles centers around the coastal community of Manhattan Beach. Incredible weather, beautiful beaches, charming downtown areas, award winning schools are just the start. Home prices throughout the area are influenced by the real estate market in Manhattan Beach.Welcome to Manhattan Beach CA....the epitome of luxury coastal living in Southern California.  This highly sought after city consists of several neighborhoods or "sections" each with a very different look and feel.  From luxury beach homes in the sand section, to the neighborhood feel of the tree section, to the slower paced lifestyle of the gated community of Manhattan Village....there is something for everyone. We've tried to make the home search as easy as possible givin...

Throwback Thursday: The Local Yolk in Manhattan Beach CA  I first enjoyed the Local Yolk in Manhattan Beach waaay back in 1999 and it's been one of our favorite breakfast places since. There are a number of other popular breakfast eateries in the same area, but this is my fav. My daughter had started at USC in 1998 and found out about the place from her friends, so on visits from Boston to CA to see her this was the eatery of choice for breakfast. Manhattan Beach is such a charming beach town to explore...but it gets crowded...and we have spent a bit of time there with our daughter, and then with her husband, and now with the grandkids. We were there this past weekend for breakfast and I realized that so little has changed over the years. There is a huge menu - they are known for their ...

Wordless Wednesday: Everyone Needs a Buddy Sometime  We were in Manhattan Beach on Sunday having breakfast with our daughter and her family. As we have often done in this charming beach town, we took a quick walk after our meal. I spied this cat and his/her buddy up on the 3rd floor deck of a beautiful contemporary home taking in the gorgeous ocean views down the hill, and could not resist snapping a photo. Wish the angle would have allowed me to also capture the view. The guy went back inside...perhaps to fill up the coffee mug...and the cat followed, no doubt hoping for a snack! Of course my real estate eye had me wondering what this oceanview property cost?!

Well when things happen that are out of your control how  do you handle it? Last weekend Diane and I were heading to Manhattan Beach to do some errands. I washed my car the day before and was ready to have a relaxing Sunday Afternoon.  So as I was driving on Sepulveda Blvd now this stretch has been  re named Pacific Coast Highway all of a sudden we run int a traffic jam with police, fire department and the list goes on and on....:My reaction was Diane quick take some pictures.... well with that said check them out and let me know how you liked them?Clearly someone decided to go very fast and lost control of their vehicle and knocked out one of the Fire Hydrants.In case you are wondering what my reaction was? I thought oh well too bad about my car wash and hopefully no one was injured......

There are times we happen to be at the right place at the right time. I left Pages the Independent Bookstore in Manhattan Beach to check on my parking meter. Since the Meter Maids are notorious in Manhattan Beach. So with that said I looked at the meeter and then saw the Sun Setting at the Pacific Ocean. Clearly I wanted to share, so you could enjoy the moment as much as I did. Now if you are looking for an Ocean View Home or an Ocean view Townhome, please reach out to me directly. If you are on the East Coast and are tired of the cold, consider relocating, it was 80 degrees today by the beach!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 loo...

Many of my clients come to me looking for a gated community in Manhattan Beach.  They are often looking for the ammenities and security that a gated community provides and are often moving from something similar.  If you're looking for a gated community in the luxury city of Manhattan Beach your option is limited.  Manhattan Village is the only gated community in Manhattan Beach. Manhattan Village Floorplans What Does the Homeowners Association Dues Include? An exclusive retreat which provides a lifestyle many are surprised to discover in a beach community. Manhattan Village real estate consists of approximately 400 town and court homes and 122 estate homes. See the Manhattan Village floorplans and Manhattan Village Map for more information on what the homes look like and offer. The vil...
