If you are a business owner in the Long Beach area, let me know. You are invited to my bi-monthly business mixer.

Every other month we meet at a local restaurant or pub. For more info, text, email or call me and you’re able to attend.

Promoting others is part of being successful and it is fun.

Long Beach, Ca has so many cool people with 1001 different passions and personalities.

Take a look at that beautiful German Shepherd. Adopted through The German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County. My wife and I named him Eland (Dutch for moose) and he is starting to become a real personality and will help us promote the Rescue even more. The Charming Miss Masher is the head coach of the Long Beach Junior Roller Derby. Teaching young people to roller-skate and how to be team players. My favorite Ice Cream guy is Marko with Marko’s treats. Tri-cycling around our town to make a living and put smiles on people’s faces.

Glad I know these fine people and happy to support them.

Buy first or Sell first

Sell first or buy first; this is for many homeowners the dilemma that they’re are facing. Whether to buy or sell first when you are thinking about moving up, away, to a better school district etc, etc.

There is no right answer. It really depends on your specific circumstances.

Most of my clients and homeowners who were ‘polled’ agree that it makes more sense and is less stressful if you sell your existing home before you buy a new one. The chance for you to get top dollar for your home is more likely if you are not under pressure to sell. You are also in a better position to negotiate when you buy your new home. If you are making an offer contingent on the sale of your home, you often lose negotiating leverage.

Even though no one wants to move twice, it may be well worth it to eliminate the risk of not having the home you select to buy being available. Yes, you will end up with cash in hand and a short term rental situation, however you are more in charge of the process.

If you currently own a home I would be happy to provide you with a home valuation so that you know what your home’s value is in today’s market. When you provide me with some basic information on your home, I’ll be able to give you a price range. That price range will be determined by using the information you provided, to compare your home to properties in your area that have recently sold, and reported in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). Or I can provide you with a more precise valuation by briefly visiting your home.

Enjoy your day!


Oh by the way, I am never too busy for any of YOUR referrals!


Diversity is what makes Long Beach, Ca tick.


Diversity is what makes Long Beach, Ca tick.

I love this town. Yup it’s Long Beach! I’m from Europe and diversity is the spice of life. Long Beach brings it all. My world turns because of it. A Roller Derby girl, a dog rescuer, an ice cream guy and a realtor, in one photo, it doesn’t get any better.

What do they have in common, they love the LBC, they play in the LBC, and have a finger on the pulse of the LBC. Different in life connected through their City.

Paint on your home.


Paint on your home.

After shopping around for painters for quite some time my wife and I decided on Maxwell’s Restorations. Run by Allen Maxwell, Long Beach (CA) local.

I walked my two White German Shepherds one day and ran in to Allen, painting a home in the neighborhood. Nice guy, not trying to sell me on anything, genuine. After a couple of weeks we met at my home to take a look and get an estimate. He invited me to visit his new work site in Carol Park, the lodes neighborhood in Long Beach. Turns out he’s pretty much painted several homes in this upscale area. All his work looks great so my wife and I decided to sign on the dotted line and have Allen and his company paint our hime.

We couldn’t be more pleased. What a job, even the neighbors and people who drive by tell us it’s a great job.

If you are in need of any trades men and / or women, contact me. I have a whole list.

Enjoy the day!

Here’s the keys to your new home, now you can fall in love with it.


I don’t know about you but one of the hardest things for my clients is, not to fall in love with the house… they fell in love with…

I make it a fun game, or at least try to.

“Yep, this is an awesome home, let’s write an offer on it.”
“Great news guys! Your offer has been accepted, we are opening escrow.”
” This seems to be a very smooth transaction, we should close in 30 days!”

All the while I tell my clients NOT to fall in love with the house that they are buying. As long as I do not hand you the keys, it is NOT yours! Up till the last day of escrow something can go wrong and POOF, the deal falls apart, and we have to start all over.

Once I have confirmation that the home has recorded in your name, I can legally hand you the keys, and you can fall in love with your home, for the first time, or again, after I smacked you out of your falling in love stage of the home-buying experience.

Congrats, you are now a home owner!

Go celebrate and tell your friends, I work by referral you know…

Cheers to you!
