rancho cucamonga: Rancho Cucamonga is a Great Place to Live - 12/31/12 11:48 PM
 
Rancho Cucamonga is a Great Place to Live!
Crowned by the majestic San Gabriel Mountains, the three communities of Alta Loma, Cucamonga, and Etiwanda voted to incorporate into the city we now know as Rancho Cucamonga.  Located just 40 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, the City's boundaries cover an area of approximately 38 square miles in San Bernardino County.

Once a laughable synonym for a faraway funny sounding place, especially on the Jack Benny Show, Rancho Cucamonga has now become a premiere city in Southern California's Inland Empire.  As a tribute to this 'publicity', the city of Rancho Cucamonga built its … (5 comments)

Enjoying Rancho Cucamonga in the Rain

 
It's Raining, It's pouring!  I love this time of year . . . The chilly weather,  watching the leaves turn the most beautiful colors, crunchy leaves, hot apple cider, hearing the sound of the fire in the fireplace, the smell of cinnamon scented candles, big comfy throws and all the other wonderful things autumn brings.
Today I enjoyed a lazy Saturday afternoon with KennyG, Boney James and Will Downing Jr.  I was in great company as I surfed the Internet reading ActiveRain blog posts and pinning some stunning images on my Pinterest Boards.

rancho cucamonga: Who Controls the Real Estate Prices in Rancho Cucamonga - 11/08/12 10:52 PM
 
Who Controls the Real Estate Prices in Rancho Cucamonga



As Real Estate Agents we like to think we have some effect on the Rancho Cucamonga home pricing, but we realize home prices are determined largely by the Buyers, and to some degree, the Sellers.  It doesn’t matter how good an Agent is, or how much money they spend marketing the property, if Buyers feel like the sales price is too high, the house won’t sell!  

No amount of skill or marketing on the Agents part will entice a Buyer to pay significantly more than what … (2 comments)

Rancho Cucamonga Real Estate Market Update 2012
 
Back in April I invited you all to Climb on Board And Take The Ride!
That blog post had a video analogy of the historic US Real Estate Home prices adjusted for inflation and plotted as a roller coaster ride.
What did we learn . . . the 90 degrees straight up and 90 degrees down on Kingda Ka is not for us!
Thank goodness that ride is slowly coming to an end.  

There are strong signs that the real estate market is beginning to slowly recover.  As a Listing Agent here … (2 comments)

rancho cucamonga: Rancho Autocare Will Take Care of YOU! - 06/21/12 04:57 PM
Rancho Autocare Will Take Care of YOU! Rancho Autocare in Rancho Cucamonga is one of the last of the honest auto mechanics (at least in my experience). I have had so many negative experiences with mechanics through the years, that when I find a good one I stick with them (and I tell everyone I know)! Very friendly, exceptional service, very fast and reasonably priced - the best thing in my mind though is they don't try to unnecessarily up-sell you. They tell you right off the bat what's wrong and what your options are, as well as how soon you need … (0 comments)

Rancho Cucamonga Welcomes Lazy Dogs! Well, The Lazy Dog, actually - it's a wonderful new restaurant that just opened up here in Rancho Cucamonga. I have been to The Lazy Dog in Thousand Oaks, California and it was absolutely delicious, so I was thrilled when I saw that we were getting one here in Rancho Cucamonga. Their menu is HUGE - everything from pizza to burgers to hummus to couscous! So far everything I've tasted has been almost TOO yummy (make it hard to NOT clean your plate).

rancho cucamonga: Take a Hike (in Sapphire Falls, That Is) - 06/18/12 02:08 PM
Take a Hike (in Sapphire Falls, That Is) I LOVE walking the trails near my home in Rancho Cucamonga. The most gorgeous (and trust me, there are quite a few so there are a lot to choose from) are at Sapphire Falls. The scenery is amazing and the hike is not too physically difficult. You can even go swimming (depending on when you go) in gorgeous clear waters from the creek that runs through the canyon. The trail continues through the waterfall, and I'm told it's incredible, but that's where the trail gets difficult, so I didn't continue on. I'm always … (2 comments)
