Happy New Year! 2019 will be a test for the strength of the local real estate market. After several years of a market favoring sellers, the balance is shifting to a neutral market favoring neither the seller nor the buyer in most of the sub-markets on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Will the market stabilize in the neutral zone, or will it continue to edge toward a full-blown buyer's market? Time and economic conditions will tell. There are 148 Palos Verdes single-family properties listed for sale. 34 PV homes are in escrow with accepted offers. 646 Palos Verdes single-family homes sold [...]

Palos Verdes California–Coastal Living at Its Best

By | August 24th, 2016|An Agent's Life, Buyer Tip, Favorite Photos - Palos Verdes, Lifestyle in Palos Verdes, Palos Verdes Luxury Homes|

  I fell in love with lighthouses when I lived in Cape Elizabeth, Maine.   The sound of the foghorn signaled the arrival of another blanket of fog, and after spending several years in Chicago, the coastal lifestyle was a change of pace.  Imagine my delight when I discovered Palos Verdes is home to the Point Vicente Lighthouse!   We plan to use a photo of the lighthouse in a marketing piece this month.  After showing property, Josh decided to return to Point Vincente and photograph the lighthouse.  I'm delighted with the results to say nothing of his dedication to capturing a [...]

Original article as written January 2008: I was recently asked by a soon-to-be resident what I like best about living in Palos Verdes.  My answer was not as concise and to the point as I would have liked.  Later, I found myself thinking about the very legitimate [...]

Live the Oceanfront Lifestyle in Palos Verdes

By | November 7th, 2015|Buyer Tip, Favorite Photos - Palos Verdes, Los Angeles Luxury Homes, Palos Verdes, Palos Verdes Luxury Homes|

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 homes 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 personal. You can smell it, you can hear it and often feel the ocean mist [...]

Real estate customer service is not dead.  At least not at Charlemagne Int'l Properties located in Rolling Hills Estates, CA.  Although, one may wonder if calls are not returned and details are left unattended causing home owners to feel the weight of the myriad of details involved in selling a Palos Verdes property seem to rest solely on the seller's shoulders.  As one seller recently commented, "Who knew selling a house involved so many moving parts and so much time?"  At Charlemagne, we make every effort to reduce the stress and burden of selling your Palos Verdes property.
