We'll email you our quarterly South Bay Real Estate Report.

Portions of the Palos Verdes real estate market are seeing falling prices. Last month, I penned a post on the Rancho Palos Verdes submarket, Los Verdes, succumbing to depreciating prices.

As we approach the end of the 2022, I am excited to share my year-end blogs. Some of the topics you can come to expect are: If you are a South Bay real estate enthusiast, I hope you will join me in all my platforms to close out the year. My goal is to help you hit the ground running in 2023. I want to switch it up this week and talk about a section of the market that I rarely, if ever, cover on the weekly blog — commercial real estate! South Bay Commercial Property First and foremost, I am not a commercial real estate agent. If you know me, then you understand I am

If you have been following my newly reimagined Instagram page, then you know I am working to share more on-camera real estate tips, strategies, and data. This weekly blog allows me to share market happenings and insights in a different way from Instagram, much like I can vocalize unique stories and strategies on my podcast. Different platforms allow different forms of real estate content. Last week I posted advice on Instagram that I would like to elaborate on this week for my blog readers. The first topic is for those of you thinking of selling, while the second topic is for all you savvy buyers contemplating whether or not an income property is the right decision
