Why move from Portola Hills... Just Sold 25011 Carol Ln.

We recently had the pleasure of helping a resident find a new home....sadly it wasn't in Portola Hills.  But they found a lovely home in Laguna Hills that fit their needs perfectly and we wanted to share in case you are in the search for something similar.. The buyers criteria had two main must haves for their new home... First... it had to be a single level and second include a pool and of course priced in their price range of under $700k.  I will admit not the easiest task in South Orange County.  Single level homes with pools are hard to find and with the median price range over $727k, to find one as lovely as this was a great find.    The 3-Bedroom, 1742 square foot home was located on a private cul-de-sac street and recently upgraded throughout.   25011 Carol Ln. Laguna Hills Details included: Distressed Wood Flooring, Travertine Tile, Custom Lighting, Remodeled Gourmet Kitchen with Stainless Steel Appliances, Granite Counters, Farmhouse Sink, Fireplace in the L

Just Sold 28366 Klondike Dr.... Kelly Did It Again - Record 2011 Price!

So excited for our seller as she has moved into her new home and we successfully sold her Montecido Townhome in Portola Hills .  As you can see from the photo's this was a lovely home in a great location;   two key assets, along with our extensive understanding of the current market, ensuring our homeowner received top dollar in this tough market!   I admit, it drives me crazy to see homeowners sell their home at the bottom of the market, when there is opportunity to bring them a higher sales price.  That's why our track record speaks for itself. This home sold for 10% over most recent sales in the complex.  The best part of today's market is, if you price your home out of range, then it is not going to appraise. Lenders are being very stringent on the numbers and the money they are loaning on.  It will also stay on the market a longer time, which will eventually hurt your overall pricing strategy.  However, that does not mean you should price your home below market

Success A Portola Hills Homeowner moved forward today!

I think the term "a successful short sale" is a bit of an oxymoran.   Why you may ask.  Because for any homeowner who has to go through the decision of short selling their home, finding success comes with letting go of some dreams.   My goal in real estate has always been to help my clients succeed with their real estate possibilities.  But I struggled with finding success in loss.  But there is success, when a client can move forward with their lives and helping them is a privelage and a responsibilty I don't take lightly. I want to thank my clients for giving me the opportunity to help them close one chapter of their life and breath as the next chapter begins.  Thank you!
