Here’s your “Market at a Glance” update with our Little Yellow Dot showing the local Palos Verdes real estate market remains in a stronger seller’s market but is showing some cooling as we enter the second half of 2018.


The luxury home market (those homes priced at or above $3,000,000) is a sub-market within the general market and reflects very different statistics.


Palos Verdes Real Estate Snapshots for each City on the Peninsula:


The Palos Verdes Drive East neighborhood is known for its large lots and lower density than many areas on “The Hill.”  Although there are pockets with a subdivision feel, the community is known for its country atmosphere. It also has one of the best locations for easy freeway access. A wide variety of styles and prices are available. How can I help you with questions or concerns about selling or buying a Palos Verdes Drive East property?

Hello, and welcome to a page we designed especially for Palos Verdes Drive East 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.

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. Norma 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:

Charlemagne Int’l Properties is headquartered in Rolling Hills Estates, CA and is the boutique real estate company founded by Norma Toering in 2014 after years of working as an agent and associate broker for one of the Big Box Brokerages in Palos Verdes. My goal is to provide an elevated level of service clients through every step of a real estate transaction. The depth of my real estate knowledge impacts a client’s bottom line. Negotiating skills can have a tremendous impact on net profits. Real estate, especially in California, is expensive and most likely one of the most valuable assets in a client’s investment portfolio. All sellers and buyers deserve a dedicated real estate professional with high integrity and one who will put their client’s best interest above all.
