Infinity Pool at Oceanfront Estates in Rancho Palos Verdes Last Updated November 2017 Oceanfront Estates was developed by Capital Pacific Holdings at the turn of the century, from the very late 1990s to the early 2000s.  The development company was from Orange County--synonymous with large homes on tiny lots, but in keeping with the locals' love of the large lot, the developer broke the mold and built large houses on large lots at Oceanfront Estates. The name of the development is not a misnomer.  The ocean views are a sight to behold.  The water is up close and [...]

How’s the Weather in Palos Verdes?

By | December 18th, 2012|An Agent's Life, Buyer Tip, Front Page, Lifestyle in Palos Verdes|

The weather interfered with my plans this morning. It's raining and I had planned a long walk along the ocean bluffs since my work schedule is open until late morning. I could go anyway, but the trails will be muddy and I'm quite spoiled by our usually near-perfect stream of sunny days. As a matter of fact, one of the things I love most about Palos Verdes is the weather. I've lived in many areas of the United States and the weather here is by far the best in my opinion. November through March is our winter rainy season in [...]

By | December 17th, 2012|Front Page, Palos Verdes, Palos Verdes Estates, Palos Verdes Luxury Homes, Palos Verdes View Homes, Rancho Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills, Seller Tip|

Palos Verdes Prospective home sellers always want to make sure they are selling their property "at the right time." The majority feel the end of the year is probably not the best time. After all, the holidays are upon us, children will be out of school for a couple weeks, plus the weather is not at its most beautiful, even in Southern California. Based on my personal experience, they are wrong. I woke up to find an offer for a $2M+ property in my email. Another email from an out-of-the country prospective buyer asked my opinion about a [...]

Qestions to Ask Before You List Your Luxury Home Selling a luxury home may not be rocket science, but it must meld science, math and art into an effective marketing trio. Let's explore the science of selling a luxury home first. Science is defined by Dictionary.com as knowledge, as of facts or principles; knowledge gained by systematic study.  When science is applied to real estate it boils down to know the market or as I like to say, comps don't lie. I consider myself a student of the local real estate market.  I review new listings and sales daily.  [...]
