Last week I had a listing appointment with a prospective seller of horse property in Rancho Palos Verdes.

"Six," she replied. "That's what I thought you said. That's a lot of horses, but yes, I can show you properties in Palos Verdes, notably Rolling Hills, that will comfortably meet your equine needs." And so we were off to look at horse properties in Palos Verdes after tightening up her requirements and price point. At our first meeting, I presented the prospective buyer with a copy [...]
