I don't know about you, but I am ready to wrap up the year 2020 and relegate it to memories past.

Buyers and agents donned masks, booties, and hand sanitizers with high hopes and little fanfare as they followed the new rules of buying a house during a pandemic. It was a year in my real estate career that stands apart from anything else I've experienced in my nearly thirty years of selling property in Palos Verdes and the South Bay of Los Angeles.
