I received one of my favorite type of emails a few days ago--a past client is moving to a new city, and after saying "Yes" to the move her thoughts turned to listing her Torrance home.  It's rewarding to know once again, Josh and I were their top-of-mind real estate agents. Three years ago we sold the property to them and it is their very first home.  They were referred to us by a mutual acquaintance and we spent many months showing them property before they found "The One." They thoroughly enjoyed living in the three bedroom house, but decided the time is right to make their next move.Fast forward to listing day.  The Multiple Listing Service is touting a new listing in the County Strip area of Torrance--915 Melissa St, Torrance, CA for $449,000.  This pocket of Torrance is an unincorp...

Few areas in the greater Los Angeles area can match the Christmas spirit exhibited by this Torrance neighborhood.  It's a tradition for many South Bay residents to visit Candy Cane Lane during the holiday season. Last Sunday I strolled through the neighborhood with a gaggle of my grandchildren and their parents.  With temperatures in the low sixties, even after dark, it was a walk through a winter wonderland--California style!  Homes are decorated to reflect the style and personalities of the occupants. My four-year-old granddaughter's favorite was, "The Frozen House" complete with a front lawn covered with artificial snow.   Snow was falling at one house!  Another granddaughter looked up to see the snowflakes tumble to the ground only to discover soap suds really stings when it gets i...

If you enjoy viewing neighborhood Christmas lights and decorations displays, the best in the South Bay is in the "Sleepy Hollow" area of Torrance. The best area is near Sharynne Lane and Doris Way, and some people believe that Reese Road is the best of the best. You can also enter the area off of Pacific Coast Highway on Robert Road near Calle Mayor, Avenue H off of Prospect, or Carlow road off of Calle Mayor . Expect a huge amount of traffic and at least a couple of hours to tour the area, but it is worth it !!

Towns such as Redondo Beach and Torrance were established in the 1800’s and early 1900’s. For some of our towns and cities, historic buildings still stand today, offering a piece of history and a “step back into time” so we can all experience what our towns were like 100 years ago. The auditorium at Torrance High School was built in 1938, and was listed in the National Registry of Historical Places in 1983. Other parts of the Torrance High School campus have also been noted as historical – the Home Economics building as well as the main building. Founded in 1888, The First Congregational Church of Long Beach was registered on the National Registry of Historical Places in 2012. The large red brick structure of the church was built in 1914 and was composed of red brick and white terra co...
