A Southern California Coastal agent's perspective on real estate and other things that interest me! Based in Laguna Beach, Real Estate is my passion.
Keeping Dogs Entertained During "Indoor" Days   We're a little spoiled in California. We have sunshine most days of the year. Now that I'm an old lady, I rarely set an alarm anymore because the sun will wake me up the minute it pops over the mountains. Today...I slept in pretty late, no sun. Even...
New Year's Resolutions? "Resolve" is the key word!   Obviously it's the time of year when we think about our goals for the coming New Year. I think any honest person has thought, "I'll eat/drink/do what I want now and January 1st it all changes." Hence the New Year's Resolution.  Of course you ha...
Pay It Forward By Starting A Non-Profit   I just got an email confirming the formation and registration of my new Non-Profit.

I do think that it's common for people to want to feel comfortable about the market. We like to und...
As a real estate professional, I'm used to asking questions of my clients. It's critical to providing good service to really understand what your clients needs/wants are to address them properly. But what about the other aspects of the escrow process? Do we really know all the right questions to...
This is the newest member of the family! Paisley! Paisley is an English Labrador Retriever so she's a bit smaller than the American Lab breed. At 4 years old, she's fully grown and about 45 pounds.  A delightful size for a dog. For years I always said that if I could find a miniature Lab dog, I'...
"I Need Anti-Freeze Mom!!!!"   My son is going to college in Illinois and this has been his first semester at school. I am flying to St. Louis tomorrow to meet him and then drive his car home for the Christmas Break....I'm soooo excited! For the Thanksgiving weekend, he and some of his friends w...
Mission Viejo High School Diablos beat Vista Murrieta Saturday afternoon to win CIF Championship 2014. Angel Stadium was an exciting place to be as the Diablos celebrated their 21-10 victory. This title was especially sweet as the team had a few stumbles at the beginning of the season. After los...
