Hello, and welcome to Charlemagne Int’l Properties’ Real Estate Page designed especially for Palos Verdes Drive South Homeowners.
First, let me introduce myself, Norma Toering, and our company, Charlemagne Int’l Properties. I work with my son, Josh Toering, and together we have over 40 years of experience selling property on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
Long time 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. In an effort to be “greener” and reduce the amount of junk mail filling your mailbox, a few years ago we moved to a more paperless approach to reach our clients.

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:
