Hello, and welcome to the page I designed specifically for Mira Catalina 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 I moved to a more paperless approach to reach clients.

“How’s the Mira Catalina real estate market?”  Every homeowner wants to keep track of values in their particular neighborhood.  The market status question is answered with a quick glance at Charlemagne Int’l Properties’ famous market slider with the little yellow dot.

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:

The agent you choose to list and sell your residence is one of the top two most important decisions you will make during the entire real estate transaction. The other one is pricing the property. The best real estate agents can help you make pricing the property simple with their knowledge of the local market, negotiating expertise, and awareness of current real estate trends.
