The views in Corona del Mar are absolutely incredible, and I always appreciate the opportunity to take in the gorgeous coastline view. There is a park named Lookout Point which overlooks Newport Harbor and the Wedge in the distance. And along Ocean Boulevard, there is a sweeping view of the Coastline.  It is incredible to watch the birds flying over the ocean, and there were pelicans out this week and it is always a treat to see them.

Corona del Mar main beach was an especially exciting place on August 27, 2014 - with huge waves after hurricane swell. Corona del Mar CA home selling and prices market update shows: 103 Corona del Mar homes are now listed for sale on the CRMLS (as of September 17, 2014). $3,703,000 is the average list price for Corona del Mar homes - as of September 17, 2014. 27 Corona del Mar homes were sold during August 2014. $2,038,111 was the average Corona del Mar home selling price during August 2014.

Enormous Waves at Corona del Mar main beach, the Wedge at Newport Beach, and South Facing Beaches - got huge attention from surfers, visitors, friends and neighbors this week - especially on August 27, 2014.   Even though it’s protected by the Jetty, Corona del Mar main beach also had big waves, which attracted lots of visitors and local photographers.   Huge waves at Newport Beach and Corona del Mar caused lots of excitement this week - at south facing Orange County CA beach from hurricane swells.               With reports of wave sizes more than 25 feet, Wednesday, August 27, 2014, might go down in local surfing history as one of the biggest wave days ever.   See Orange County Register article with photo images about Monster Waves – August 28, 2014   CDM main beach bluff views toward...

Well you probably guessed it, my oldest daughter graduated from college. Oh yea, she also got married. That might explain my hair style. The truth be known, all four of my daughters are the joys of my life. Kaitlin is no exception. She graduated at the top of her class with 4.555555 grade average or something like that. I didn't realize you could get anything higher than a 4.0. The wedding was great. My wife and I cried like babies. That was the hardest thing I had to do in my life to date, to give my daughter away. However, like the old saying goes I didn't "loose a daughter I gained a son". He changed his name to include our famly's name. Wow, that blew me away. I quess I gained a son. Whats this got to do with real estate? It's got everything to with it. We Realtors are R-E-A-L peop...
