What an incredible experience flying in a WWII B24 Liberator Bomber.  All came about from a "Karma deal"; had put a couple of clients together on a business deal.  I didn't expect anything out of it, just did it.  And out of the blue, one of the clients happens to be a big time donor keeping these "Flying Museums" operational and invited me for a ride!  Thanks to #VIPLoans and its President, #PeteRosenthal.  This was both an exciting but also somber experience in that one can't help but feel what it was like for those brave men of the #GreatestGeneration courageously flying in these.  At the end of the war, our guys died at the rate of 1 every hour.  Your life expectancy was about 6 weeks.  Tremendous gratitude for their sacrifice.  Compare that to our current generation; lots of work to do.  #BestPalosVerdesHomes

+Leslie Hart it was unbelievable and as I said, so truly awesome (not the way we throw the word around these days, but truly full of awe) thinking of our brave airmen during WWII flying in these.

Multiple offers - strategies to use. Learn from my experience, whether you're a buyer or seller http://www.bestpalosverdeshomes.com/multiple-offers-strategies-for-buyers-and-sellers/

There isn’t a week, and sometimes a day, when I don’t learn something in this business. Often it’s a lesson learned directly from a client. That’s one of the great things about my business; I benefit from meeting folks from all walks of life and all professions. It’s really quite remarkable and every transaction is different. It’s what has made serving my clientele since 1980, truly a rewarding experience. Even though, the lessons learned are sometimes learned the hard way.

Let’s take for example the lesson I learned this week. We’ve all heard the expression, “… when you ‘assume’ something, you make an a** out of ‘u’ and ‘me’”

So true. I made assumptions this week about what a client of mine knew and didn’t know and those assumptions led to my client not getting a home they really liked. Let me share the “behind the scenes” set up here. We’re in a market right now that is just abysmally undersupplied. The price appreciation vector as a result of this undersupply is such (check my March 17 blog entry and scroll down to the bottom of the page for the chart depicting listing volume) that in my opinion, continued price appreciation is “baked in” to the market for quite some time.

In fact if you read my April 8 blog entry, you will see why I believe this to be true. At any rate, if you’re a buyer of real estate today in a market in which supplies are short, price appreciation trajectories are strongly positive, then you need to understand the choices you can make when your broker is completing the “RPA” (Residential Purchase Agreement). As part of my customer service then, let me share some of the elements in the RPA that you, as a buyer, have to think about and if you’re a seller, what you too have to measure when studying offers presented to you. As you read through the table, the first column refers to paragraphs in the RPA which you can check here

For those of you reading this that are selling or buying now, this is critically important to understand. If you know anyone that is considering buying or selling, please share this email with them. Learn from my mistake!

But first, did you know that of the 61 Palos Verdes homes sold in the last 30 days 1/3rd of them sold for list price or over list price?! For the last 30 days, here’s the most frequent price ranges (scroll to bottom of this article for chart)

One of my clients asked me yesterday about whether or not I thought we were in another “price appreciation bubble” for Palos Verdes Estates home prices. Let’s get one thing clear here, I have no crystal ball and as they say, "past performance is no guaranty of future results"

However, one of the benefits you have of choosing me as your broker is my experience and knowledge of the market based on facts. Here's an example of the kind of data at my finger tips that I use for my clients' benefit

Why is it that only 1 out of the 3 foreclosure status types is the one that makes investors money and where home buyers can get a good deal?

Wonderful service; even offered, for no charge, to correct a problem with my laptop. I then elected to have more work done on my system because of their customer service attitude. Really appreciate this very much!
