Los Angeles' second downtown is Century City... most of you who read my blog posts regularly will recall that I have been saying over the past who knows how many years that there are two Downtowns in Los Angeles. One is the real downtown and the other is Century City, which is neighboring to Beverly Hills, West Los Angeles and Brentwood to name a few. So with that said let me share some interesting data:  As you can see there are a great many Renters, this brings up another question: why are there so many renters? Part of it is because UCLA as in the University of Southern California is part of Century City Westwood. This of course creates a huge rental populations in and around the Campus.Then in turn Century City is Beverly Hills adjacent and many of those who work in Beverly Hills bu...

The Century City, Los Angeles, CA 90067 Condominium Market Report is very interesting. If you look at the Sales Prices you will immediately see my point:  In the past three years prices have dramatically increased, and part of it is location and the other part is supply and demand.Another important area to focus on is the Days on Market: As you can see it is incredible for the price point to be such a fast market. Just based on these two factors you can tell it is a Sellers Market and Buyers need to be properly prepared if they want to have an opportunity to purchase a Condominium in Century City, CA.We are just at the beginning of summer and look at the sold statistics: I am anticipating prices and inventory to increase. Now if you are considering selling your Condominium, please reach...

Market Overview: Century City for the period of July 1st,2015 to August 1st, 2015!There is a misconception that Century City is a quiet Condominium Community that is forgotten in the big picture when it comes to Los Angeles.The reality is Century City has high end Restaurants, Ultra Luxury Condominium Buildings as well as small resort style Condominium communities with parks, swimming pools and physical fitness room with state of the art equipment and much more.It is the destination place for the ultra-rich from around the Globe. There are many who do not want to have a home in the hills, but want to be walking distance to shops, restaurants and to Beverly Hills.There is a small Townhome Community hidden in plain sight and this Townhome Enclave is inside the prestigious Century Woods Ga...

Sunday Evening Reflection on Valentine's Day and this message! I found it very inspirational and I will be sad if they get rid of it too soon!

So I thought I would share with you this picture. Now what a great message. I loved it every one was trying to get in front of it and have their pictures taken.

  Sadly the animals of Century City, CA have disappeared. As most of you have been reading my blogs know that I loved the idea of having the animal sculptures on Avenue of the Stars in Century City, CA. It generated warmth in a normally cold high rise neighborhood. I have written a couple of blogs how great it would be to keep the sculptures, well the powers to be did keep them a few extra months than what was anticipated. http://actvra.in/42MZ  (September 08,2013) http://actvra.in/42Qd  (September 10,2013)   Sadly a couple of weeks ago I drove by and none of the animals were there. Just as they quietly placed them there, just as quickly the powers to be took them down. They will be missed. So just as a symbolism I will post one more statue and you know that this one flew away too!     ...

 When you hear the word   “Conundrum” what do you think of? Most people I know will think of the definition of Conundrum as something of a Riddle. Something that needs to be solved but one does not know the answer to. That is what most of us think of as a Conundrum. Some people go deeper and say how were the Druids able to move all those Rocks and create Stonehenge. Others think of their jobs and connect it with some complex issue they can not explain. So what do you think I think of when you say Conundrum?? Well the answer is easy: I think of the nontraditional white wine blend, full of flavors.  This wine was created by the fantastic Wine Guys of Caymus Vineyards. If you have not tried Conundrum put it on your list. This is another must have wine if you like complex white wines. Take ...

Coto De Hayas Centenaria Granacha: 2011 another Wine Recommendations by Endre Barath   As most of you who read my blog on a regular basis know I love good wines as well as I also love a good value.  This wine happens to meet both of those criteria: it is a fantastic value and a great wine. Thanksgiving is right around the corner please do not forget to add this wine to the table!   The wine is made out of 100% Granacha Grapes which we call here in the United States Grenache. It is a great full bodied dry red wine with lots of tannins and very concentrated. For an under $20 bottle I could drink it on a regular basis. I love wines that have a long finish.   I am not a big fan of fruity red wines hence this is just the opposite it has a balanced structure that I can enjoy sip after sip. No...

Wildlife in Century City on Avenue of the Stars: Still here! Hope they will become permanent!  As some of you know, I have written a Blog Post about the Wildlife on Avenue of the Stars in Century City, CA in case you missed it here is a link (http://actvra.in/42Qd ) the word on the street was that they will take the Sculptures down at the end of October 2013.       Well I am thrilled to report, that as of November 1st, 2013 the Sculptures were still there! Hope the decision makers had a change of heart. The Wildlife is good for the locals as well as the visitors. Often as I drive by the area I make it my business to turn on to Avenue of The Stars to admire the Sculptures as I do I always see tourists with cameras in hand doing what I did a few months ago. Take many pictures of themJ    ...

  “A Delicate Truth” by John Le Carre’ a book  review by Endre Barath, Jr.    I have read almost every book that Le Carre’ has written in his long and distinguished career as an author. I also had the pleasure of meeting him at the Writer’s Guild in Los Angeles where he read from his books and signed his books. (Another blog post about that incident to come J) Here are a couple of blog post I wrote over two years ago http://actvra.in/lVx     &  http://actvra.in/jzL  for those who missed them. For those readers who are not familiar with his books, in my opinion Le Carre’s  has been mostly recognized for  one of his earliest books and it remained in the forefront to many people for about three or four decades . This book was “The Spy who came in from the Cold” interestingly it was also br...

Today we spent time after a meeting at one of our favorite outdoor malls in Century City.  In our commercial real estate practice, we have seen this mall sold by one of our clients, and then resold to Westfileld who continued to add value by expanding the footprint.  In addition they have wooed luxury brands to the center such as Louis Vuitton, Tiffany, Brooks Brothers and many others. Californians love their dogs and Westfield's management understands that.  By installing this beautiful dog biscuit and water dispensers suitable for different size dogs, they have won the heart of many shoppers, including ours.  And, we don't own a dog.   Care comes in many forms, and this one is priceless.  Cheers, Ron & Alexandra Written by Ron & Alexandra Seigel- -WATCH VIDEOS-  Buzz-Worthy Luxury Re...

Why is there a new Wildlife along Avenue of the Stars in Century City? This question has been asked by many, but few know the reason. Around the middle of November 2012 there were 22 animal sculptures place along Avenue of the Stars. These 22 “life-size bronze animal sculptures” were made by Gwynn Merrill. Some were Tigers, deer, panthers, big horn sheep, horses and even an eagle depicted in flight. The question was WHY? The Century City Chamber of Commerce Art Council’s Sculpture committee decided to humanize the glass, concrete, asphalt and steel high-rise neighborhood. The vision was awesome to celebrate the human side of Century City by integrating the sculptures in this urban and commercial center. When one comes to Century City one this of the heart of Los Angeles I know of no oth...

Have you Micro Chipped your Pet? Well you should, since Pet theft is on the rise! The American Kennel Club has been tracking pet thefts since 2007 and sadly report that there has been an increase in dog theft last year.  I find this totally outrageous; imagine 32% increase in dog theft last year alone! Although some animals are stolen from the back yards or during a home invasion, turns out most of common animal theft occurs through other means. This is what the police call “opportunistic thieves” or better stated preventable Theft! When going into town leave your dog at home. This is the best advice; if you do not take it, than at least keep a close eye on your pet, do not leave them in your car, nor should you tie them to a pole while you go inside a store shopping bring someone along...
