Wordless Wednesday: Life's a BeachSometimes It's a Lily Pad  Concert Park is a wonderful park in Playa Vista CA (part of the tech and start-up area known as Silicon Beach in LA) we've visited several times with 2 of the grandkids. We did so again yesterday when we joined our older daughter and her family for lunch by her office, then some playtime. There are several ponds with lots of lily pads and ducks, and a bunch of turtles which of course delighted kids and adults!

A Visit to the Ballona Discovery Park in Playa Vista CA We enjoyed a wonderful visit to the Ballona Discovery Park in Playa Vista, a community now known as “Silicon Beach,” in the West LA area Friday afternoon.  We were at the park with our younger daughter, her husband, our 2 grandchildren, and our son-in-law’s Mom who was visiting, for a photo shoot for their annual Christmas card. Their photographer has done photos for them in the past, and for our older daughter and her family for the holidays on more than one occasion, and it was great fun to watch her at work, especially with young kids who do not always cooperate…her photos are always beautiful. The kids had a great time but it was also fun to explore, a little, all that this community park offers.   If you live in the general ar...

Worldless Wednesday: A Cool Outdoor Concert Stage in Playa Vista CA  I stumbled across this photo of a very cool outdoor covered stage at a park in Playa Vista (now referred to as Silicon Beach) from back in November 2014. We were visiting our daughter and her family and were at the park to feed the ducks first, but also for the photo shoot for their holiday card they do every year. 11-month old Enzo was too young to appreciate the opportunity of being on-stage under the lights as the sun was setting, but 3 1/2 year old Giada took it right in stride - too bad I missed the photo of her onstage. What a cool venue to attend an outdoor performance at!

Renaming the Marina Freeway to The Ballona Freeway: what’s in a name? Many of us who are Realtors understand the value of Branding. There is a lot in a name. It appears that Environmental Activists agree with this idea. Amongst locals the Marina Freeway is called “the 90” since it is the number given by the state many years ago. So, where do ideas come from? Often times it comes from obscure events or occurrences. In this case the idea was born about five years ago, when Los Angeles Times columnist Pat Morrison floated the concept of changing the name of the freeway at an awards ceremony. So fast forward to today the 90 Freeway known as the Marina Freeway at least the name will be on the Docket for legislators to vote an and changing the name to “The Ballona Freeway”. Now keep in mind t...

Relocating from Silicon Valley To Silicon Beach? Check out these Playa Vista Homes $1M-$1.5M Playa Vista is part of the tech boom called Silicon Beach. Facebook, YouTube, FOX and many others are in the commercial development of Playa Vista. The residential development is a few long blocks away or a short bike ride from the office buildings, and restored Howard Hughs aircraft hangers. A movie theater, Whole Foods, and shopping are coming soon. Check out these homes below. My favorite one with beautiful park and bluff views is at 5625 Crescent Park West, #420. It’s the penthouse with a 5th floor inside! You have a view of the park. It’s so wide that the other side faces Jefferson. However, there is a larger office/executive area so it feels like an office with a view. Perfect for the work...

Today was one of those days where the phone is ringing and the emails are collecting more and more every minute.  It happens when you have 2 closings in a week.  You get emails from buyers, sellers, escrow, title, lenders and anyone else that thinks they are involved.   On top of that the painters decided to come today to do touch up’s from wear and tear.  I talked to them 2 weeks ago.  They had time today!  Today!  When we have a really busy morning and week.   I didn’t have time make lunch and have been working all morning.  Luckily there is this new cafe in Playa Vista in the middle of the Silicon Beach offices.  It's called Big Mango Cafe. I just love their Chinese Chicken Salads.  They have them made and ready to go.  Their meat is Boar’s Head white shredded chicken.  It’s really ...

The Esplanade a great  Complex inside the in Playa Vista, CA urban community! First of all, most of you who read my blog consistently, know I have written often about the Playa Vista, CA Urban Community. This was the first urban development in 50 years in the Greater Los Angeles, CA. Now inside the Playa Vista community is The Esplanade, full character and charm. There is a tower and many arched loggias. There are single level condominiums and town homes and some face inward to the Romanic courtyards. Others face the community or the Mountains. I think of the Architecture having a strong European influence in this complex. Some of you might think of it being classic California Mediterranean style of the 1930’s. Now the Esplanade is in the heart of the Concert Park District of Playa Vist...

Play Vista Condominium Market Report for December 2011 As we closed this challenging year in Real Estate and in the overall Economy, I am truly glad we can start a New Year. So let’s review, we had the fear of a double dip recession, European crisis in Italy, Greece, Portugal to name a few. Then we had the Japanese Tsunami and the various other catastrophes around the world. All this has impacted the housing market. Let’s keep in mind that the debt crisis at home and in Europe will continue to linger on in 2012. Ironically this volatile economic environment will push investors into the Real Estate Market. I anticipate this migration to the “safety” of “Real Estate Investments” in the coming year of 2012. The good news Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac will continue to guarantee new mortgages on ...

Playa Vista Condominium Market Report for the month of November 2011 Here we are, the last month of the year is just buzzing by. So let’s look how the November real estate activity fared comparatively.  The month has been quite mixed with good news and bad news. Every time I looked on the internet I either saw that there was bad economic news in Italy, Spain, Ireland and Portugal or there was good news that Germany will help out the European Financial Crisis. This roller coaster good news, bad news in my opinion is manipulating the World Economy… Sadly not in a good way… this is creating insecurities all over the Globe. The Stock Market responds to the headlines instead to the “researched facts”. This volatility is affecting the housing market as well. I have noticed that only the savvy...
