Where can you buy this million dollar view for $885,000?  Let me answer that question:  3200 La Rotonda Dr, Unit 211, Rancho Palos Verdes, CA  90275.     The panoramic view condo sports not only one of the best views in the entire Ocean Terrace Condo Complex, it also has a high-end interior remodel.  There are wood floors, crown molding and smooth ceilings.  The granite kitchen is fabulous and the bathrooms are spacious and elegantly finished with tile and new cabinetry. The big view windows are dressed to show off the view during the day but "disappearing blinds" give privacy at night.  Plantation style shutters add style and function to other windows.   The one-level two-bedroom condo is close to the elevator, and the two assigned parking spaces are conveniently located near the elevator and mailboxes as well.   The master suite is a joy to behold with a walk-in [...]

Los Angeles is a huge metropolitan area with many micro climates within miles of each other.  The temperatures inland are beyond sizzling today, but the coast is basking in sunshine and cool coastal breezes.  What a difference a mile can make! If you dream of panoramic ocean views, lush green golf courses and a pool for a cool dip, you really must talk to me about our new upcoming condo listing in Rancho Palos Verdes.  It's just days away from hitting the market and the timing could not be better. An August heat wave is the perfect time to market this little jewel by the sea. I was there today to let the cleaning crew in to work their magic, and the moment the patio slider was opened the living area was flood with a refreshing ocean breeze.  The view's not too bad either! Hiking trails are nearby! [...]

New Torrance, CA Listing–915 Melissa Street

By | July 30th, 2015|Charlemagne Int'l Properties, Listings, South Bay of Los Angeles Homes For Sale, Uncategorized|

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. People often contemplate a move for many months before they make the final decision to move.  However, once the decision is made they are anxious to start the process.  My clients want their home on the market in time for a [...]

I Turned Down a Luxury Listing

I guess I'm not a "Yes" broker. Yesterday I said "No"to listing a luxury home in the South Bay of Los Angeles.  At least for the time being. Don't get me wrong this luxury listing agent loves to hang our real estate sign on the lawns of Los Angeles luxury homes. As the broker-owner of a boutique real estate company I always strive to be open to new business opportunities, it's just as important to know when and where to establish "no-go" boundaries.  In this case the property's view is a winner, the location is better than good (not quite great), but the prospective seller and I are mega dollars apart on value, and therefore we could not agree upon a list price.  The honest, fair and best for all concerned outcome was for me to walk away without the listing.  There was no way I could come close to fulfilling [...]

The decision to sell your primary residence is a life-changing event, especially if it was your home for several decades.  Not only are there preparations required for the sale, there are also a plethora of self-preparation stages an owner must go through in order to become the seller of a house rather than the owner of a home. Moving through the stages of selling a property can be emotionally and physically taxing.  It is a daunting task to wade through years of accumulated stuff, not to mention the storehouse of memories and decision each item requires.  Do you keep it, donate it, or toss it?  When one evaluates the possessions accumulated over the years we can't help but realign the associated memories in our mind.  This is especially true if the house was your home for many years. There's no overnight solution, but by breaking your move into stages you [...]
