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. In an effort 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 and homeowners.

Selling Homes on the Palos Verdes Peninsula since 1992

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:

If you’re in the market to find a top Palos Verdes real estate agent to sell your Palos Verdes property, the choices can be daunting since there are so many agents and real estate companies to consider. 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, experience, negotiating expertise and awareness of current real estate trends.


Norma Toering began selling residential properties in the South Bay of Los Angeles in 1992.  Although our primary area of concentration is Palos Verdes, we have a number of sales in the Beach Cities, San Pedro, and other South Bay areas. Past clients enlisted our help to sell or buy property in Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, Needles, Pasadena and other areas of California. Yes, we will travel to represent our clients.

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 to my clients through each and every step of a real estate transaction. The depth of my real estate knowledge impacts my clientele’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.
