Happy Friday everyone – great day!

Today I’d like to share with you a great new listing right at the ocean on the Gold Coast of Long Beach – overlooking miles of sand meeting ocean meeting blue sky….. the ultimate lifestyle location – this is a 3 bedroom 2 bath condo all on one level, ocean views, large long balcony, over 1300 square feet of living space, offered at $725,000.

The last unit I had for sale in this building was a 2 bedroom 2 bath under 1000 SF and that literally sold in 24 hours. I put it on the market the Saturday morning the day before Easter (just last month in April!) and on Sunday, when we thought it would be quiet because it was Easter, we got a call from a motivated ready, willing, and able buyer who drove down from Los Angeles to see the property at 2 pm, and at 4 pm, we were at my office writing a full price offer.

At 5 pm we were at my seller’s dining room accepting the offer.

Today – May 19, the property will be recording and closing escrow. Buyers and Sellers both are SUPER HAPPY.

So, in short, this intimate 18 unit Mediterranean style building at the ocean, called Palacio del Mar, makes people happy. The ocean breezes, the sweeping views, the terrific amenities (rooftop deck, access to the pool, gym, and spa next door) and the spacious units just bring smiles to people’s faces. And all for a low HOA dues of $448/month, a fraction of what it is at neighboring Ocean Blvd properties!

If you want to smile and relax more often, I prescribe ocean air. Direct and private beach access to newly paved running/walking paths and biking paths that stretch for miles, so you can stretch your legs and fill your body with endorphins. Yoga on the beach just steps away, so close you can see them practice.

May you have a lovely weekend. Call or email me if you’d like to see this luxurious property.

Happy Cinqo de Mayo & Date Change for the Six Steps to Successful Estate Planning Seminar!

Good morning and Happy Cinqo de Mayo!

Wow! Memorial Day will be upon us soon, kicking off a hot summer.

First off, let me share with you that we had an overwhelmingly positive response to our invitation to Estate Planning Attorney Curtis Kaiser’s upcoming talk entitled Six Steps to Successful Estate Planning. However, most participants wanted a weekend date instead of a mid-week seminar (due to a pesky thing called Work).

Therefore, in response to demand, we have CHANGED THE DATE from May 16 to Saturday June 24 at 9:00 am. This will be a Free Seminar with Coffee and Bagels etc and it will take place at 5150 E Pacific Coast Hwy, 7th Floor Conference Room, Long Beach, CA 90804.

Please RSVP for this event as it will likely be SOLD OUT as it is (a) chock full of important information about forming a TRUST for your home and other property, (b) FREE, and now, (c) ON A WEEKEND.

Please RSVP to this by emailing Nancy Deprez at

Other updates: I didn’t send out a May 1 numbers update for the month of April. Suffice it to say I looked at the stats and they told the same story as the month before. Low inventory remains the name of the game and you’re tired of hearing that, I know. Buying activity in the market remains brisk throughout Southern California.

All is well in the market – interest rates remain low with the promise of being higher in the future, and first time and move-up buyers are enthusiastic and excited about home ownership.

If you know of anyone who would like to move this spring or summer, whether they wish to sell their current place or buy a new one, or both, please send me a note, and I can professionally guide and navigate them in this low inventory market. In the meantime, cheers and have a wonderful May 5!
