"Palos Verdes Resident since 1947"

March 2017 Newsletter

Dear Neighbor:

The real estate market continues to have a shortage of houses for sale, which has driven prices to record levels.  Any house under about $2.5 million that has not sold within a month in this market needs to have its price seriously examined.  You will see reports in the media that “Pending home sales fall to lowest level in a year” or something close to that.  The reason is not that the market is slow as you might infer; the reason is that there simply aren’t enough houses for sale.  If you’re a potential seller, that is good news, so call me.

About the time you receive this I will have the house for sale that a lot of people are looking for.  #6 Pleasant Hill Drive is one of the original 7 on a street that became the most desirable in Rolling Hills Estates.  My family was one of the original 7 and lived next door to #6 – at 2900 square feet 5 bedroom 3 bath one level, on an all usable lot of just under half an acre, the possibilities are endless.  If you’re finding out via this letter and are interested or know someone who is, call me right away at 310 613-1076 because this absolutely will not last.  $1,795,000.

I will also have shortly a really charming 3200 square foot house in the Country Club area of RPV – secluded at the end of a cul de sac, you would think you’re in Big Sur.  This one level house is beautifully designed to let the outdoors in, is extensively remodeled, and has a lovely black-bottom pool and spa nestled under the trees.  The price has not yet been determined, so call me.

Last month I attended a memorial service for one of my recent clients, a long-time Palos Verdes resident.  During the time when the family shared memories of their father, the daughter who had been the trustee of the estate mentioned some of the things I had done to sell the family home.  It was nice to hear, and a little embarrassing all at once, tho hardly anyone in the room knew it was me.  But I was sitting there thinking that arranging the estate sale, bringing the escrow officer to their father who was in a convalescent home, and selling one of the family cars for them (they all lived out of the area) are the sorts of things I do for all my clients when necessary.  It was nice to hear how much easier it made their lives at a difficult time, and it confirmed to me that, after 32 years, I was still the kind of agent I wished I could have found.
