Lets start in Highland Park this evening…….

5207 Barker Dr. – This property is HOT! There is simply nothing like it in Highland Park!

A Contemporary architectural property built for a bespoke buyer who is looking for a Hollywood Hills home for a far less money! Just browsing the photos I can tell you the builder did not miss a beat with this home! This home is well thought out, presentable and simply stunning! When I choose a home to write about it has to move me, it has to make want it! I WANT THIS HOUSE! So my guess is you will too! Listed at $1.5 million you will be buying a true masterpiece!

I went to preview this stunning property last week on brokers open! I have to say as a builder and real estate professional I walked around this house with an eye on the details….. When you are expected to buy a home for $1.8 million in this part of town you are a little skeptical of how a home could be this pricy in Eagle Rock?? Hmmmmm I believe this would be a record for the area or damn close to it.

I have to admit this house is flawless…… The builder seemed to really treat this house as a piece of art…. His passion for his craft really showed up in every detail of this home. Starting from the moment you walk onto the property I could tell the attention to detail this reimagined craftsmen home was given. Walk in and feel the light engulf you, the den has skylights that lend itself to a warm feeling, the sunlight bounces off the warm wood floors, the windows in this home are true to the era, lots of glass and lots of character….. The kitchen is a work of art, heck the entire home is a work of art. This is why I love my job and this truly caught my attention.

This 1921 remodeled craftsman is a perfect blend of modern and traditional. A perfect family home is a family orientated community like Eagle Rock. The details of the home are as follows.

4 beds | 5 baths | ADU / Guest House with a bed and bath | Custom finishes | Vaulted ceilings | Wood floors and wood ceilings | Designer colors | Custom Kitchen | Lots of light | Grassy back yard | Avocado Tree | Just a brilliant custom home | 2580 total sqft

My adjectives for this pad when describing this home are as follows… my buddy Dino and his guys crafted a clean, hipstery, & young professional abode in one of LA’s most eccentric neighborhoods.

The home has all you could want, a custom kitchen with designer colors, minimalist features throughout, clean tiled bathrooms, herring bone laid out wood floors, custom flush mounted Edison bulb lighting, a large yard perfect for your summer gatherings.

Whats up with the market in Burbank Ca

Market update for Burbank Ca for November 2018-  For those of you who would like to know whats going on with real estate here in Burbank. This is a brief update leading into the Holiday’s for my fellow neighbors and Burbank residents.

Screen Shot 2018-11-01 at 10.00.40 AM

The market is shifting!  Affordability remains to be an issue and will continue for the foreseeable future for some.  Home buyers are now paying 5% interest rates for a 30-year loan coupled with sky high prices, we are now seeing more inventory on the market as compared to last year and the year before. That means the purchasing power of the consumer is less than what has been over the last ten years based on record low interest rates. So just keep this in mind would-be-sellers when you consider selling. (Zillow isn’t always correct)

More inventory means more to choose from and less demand. So naturally sales prices should start to reflect a shift in what you can truly get for your home based on buyers simply have more to choose from.

We usually see a decline in activity or homes for sale at this time of year but right now there are 100 single family homes on the market. The median list price is 957,000. Out of the 100 SFR for sale 46 of those are priced at $1 million+ or higher with average of 54 days on market.

This tells me sellers and agents need to be realistic about pricing their properties if you truly need to move. Buyers my advice to you is be smart about making your next move, Is the market going to see a significant drop in sold prices ?? I’d expect agents to start shifting asking prices down in the next few years as the Fed will continue to raise Interest Rates. Thats is my opinion on the state of the real estate market not only here in Burbank but in Los Angeles in general.

Where are people going? In my conversation with my fellow Keller Williams agents across the country, Angelenos seem to be moving to places like Idaho, Phoenix, Vegas and Austin, Texas to name a few.

As a real estate professional I would like to offer my services to those of you who need a trusted Realtor in the community. I not only can help you sell or purchase a home here in Burbank and the surrounding areas, with the power of Keller Williams Realty, I can place you in the hands of hand picked agent in the area that you will be relocating to.

WHAT!!!! A Remodeled home in LA for under $700K? Yes, Sir! But this cute hillside home is in the not so heard of the community of El Sereno, Got you thinking like Hmmm do🤔 I want to venture in there?? Well, El Sereno is one community that investors such as NELA Homes and first-time buyers are targeting for flips and economically responsible buyers are now considering. El Sereno is located in the canyon just to the east of Highland Park and just south of Pasadena. Its location to Downtown Los Angeles, Pasadena, and Highland Park. El Sereno is probably a bit edgy and gritty but if you are in the market for a home under $600-700,000.00 than this is where you might want to consider.

My Top Five Pads for Sale in The Valley! As of 03/09/18

The San Fernando Valley has and always will be the where we local Angelenos look for a bit of peace and quiet in this metropolis of a city known as Los Angeles. The valley is evolving just like the rest of the city with new construction properties like the home featured below. My good friend Rob Diaz and his crew of creatives are changing the look and feel of what it means to live in a modern home in the Valley. His homes feature all the bells and whistles a modern buyer can ask for. Rob and his team keep the essence of what a home should be with warm wood floors, finishes, and an interesting farmhouse architecture. In Fact looking at this home below reminds me of the family home I grew up in Glendale. Maybe that is why I am such a huge fan of Rob’s work!

NOHO Real Estate – Best homes for sale in North Hollywood.

As we enter 2018 the theme continues, a tight inventory, which is to be expected for this time of year.  Despite the season that isn’t stopping local home buyers from jumping on opportunities when the opportunity presents itself. My job as a Realtor is to pay attention to the inventory and notify my buyers when I see a turnkey home. My purpose in writing this blog is to inform you of the best homes for sale at any given moment.

3 Beds | 2 Baths | 1,337 sqft | Remodeled | NoHo Homes For Sale


As 2018 plays out In my personal and professional opinion one of the areas I feel is becoming a go-to choice for buyers will be NoHo Arts district / North Hollywood area of the San Fernando Valley. I sold a home on 6104 Cartwright in August for 50K over asking (I underpriced it based on condition) but I had five offers within hours after my initial broker’s open house. A local couple who moved back in with their parents purchased the home.

I am starting to see how the transformation of NoHo Arts district, proximity of the subway and local eateries, bars and coffee shops have put North Hollywood on the radar of buyers, and investors who are coming in and rehabbing these older 1940’s bungalows built during the Lockheed days.

I have chosen three homes for this blog today as they meet my criteria – If I was a buyer I would consider buying these homes. They are ready to move into, remodeled and in an area that is convenient to my life and work.

#2 -11519 Albers St, NoHo 91601

11519 Albers St | 2 Bed 1 Bath | 1,020 sqft | List Price $649,000.00

Screen Shot 2018-01-07 at 9.57.59 AM
3 Beds | 3 Bathrooms | 1,830 sqft | List Price $699,000.00

North Hollywood is my sleeper pick of 2018 along with Burbank, Valley Village when it comes to value, location and opportunity especially if you work at ABC, Warner Brothers, Disney and the local Studios in the area.
