A post shared by Norma Toering l Real Estate (@normatoering) on

Hello, and welcome to Charlemagne Int’l Properties’ Real Estate Page designed primarily for Palos Verdes Drive North Homeowners.
First, let me introduce myself, Norma Toering, and my company, Charlemagne Int’l Properties. 

Longtime residents may be familiar with my name as for many years beginning in 1992 I sent postcards and newsletters to your neighborhood on a regular basis. To be “greener” and reduce the amount of junk mail filling your mailbox, a few years ago we moved to a more paperless approach when communicating with clients.
Some of you may be familiar with my award-winning real estate blogs as they have provided valuable information about the Palos Verdes real estate market to our clients and readers since 2007. We also have a website/blog specifically designed to help sellers and a site for buyers as well. Several of our niche blogs are intended for buyers and sellers with particular interests such as horse property or luxury homes.

Our goal is to provide an elevated level of service to our clients through every step of a real estate transaction. The depth of our real estate knowledge impacts our customers’ bottom line. Our negotiating skills can have a tremendous impact on net profits.

A few words from our past and present clients:

“We hired Norma when we bought our home 4 years ago and it was a wonderland experience. We stumbled on to her Palos Verdes Home blog website by chance when we were researching on buying a home in PV. We thought she was very knowledgeable and decided to set an appointment to meet with her. My wife and I were first time home buyers and Norma patiently educated us and walked us through all the options on what and where to look. Norm and her team gave us very knowledge feedback on our concern and also helped us through some troubling time when we had problems getting approval for a home loan. Finally she found us a wonderful home. It was initially outside of our price range but she negotiated hard for us and we got it! We would work with Norma again when we buy our next home.”  – Unsolicited Zillow Review from past client:
