Buying a HOME may seem like an endless series of critical, important decisions. When you find the house that is right for you, you need to find a home inspector to educate you about the condition of your new home. It is highly recommended that you take advantage of the service that a professional Home Inspector can provide to you, to protect yourself  and your Home Purchase.  It is best to work with a Home Inspector that is a member of one of the Home inspections Associations such as ASHI or CREA. Most Home Inspectors do have a contracting background and will check the major functions in the home . They are trained to look for problems, things that might otherwise be over looked.  They will check the electrical, plumbing, all doors and windows, the furnace and Air Conditioner and firepl...

There’s nothing I enjoy more than Staging close to home! If you happen to forget something, it’s just a short drive to storage, and you’re never stuck in traffic on the way home. So I was thrilled when Stage to Sell was hired to Stage a model unit for a beautiful new townhome development in my very own Culver City! When I first previewed this property, my biggest concern was the size of the 2 main living spaces. The townhome had both a formal living room and a family room on the main level, but both rooms felt very small, especially without furniture in them. Click here to see how we solved these problems and created a beautiful Model Home that felt open and spacious to buyers!   ************************************************************************************* Annie Pinsker-Brown | ...

Well, after all my shameless plugging, the votes are in and thanks to YOU, my company Stage to Sell has been named one of the winners in StartUp Nation's Leading Moms in Business Competition for 2009! This contest really struck a chord with me because when I became a working mom five years ago, I was amazed at how difficult it was to run both a family and a business. It is often a thankless job and the hours are quite long! Of course as any mom knows, we wouldn't have it any other way. Being a mom-preneur has given me a newfound respect for my own mother who worked from the time I was a baby, but always made sure I felt 100% loved, taken care of and special. Many moms don't have the option to stay at home full time for financial reasons, and many choose not to for their own sanity (and ...

Here are my tips..as a 25 year resident of Los Angeles..on how to keep your cool..and stay alive..while driving the Los Angeles Freeways.   Leave with ample time for your destination So many things are beyond our control, (construction, traffic, weather, odd hazards) but one thing that IS is our time. Just leave 1/2 to 45 minutes early. You will be more relaxed on the drive and you will most likely be on time..regardless of the freeway conditions. Don't speed, you won't have enough time to stop in case of an emergency. You do want to get there..and you do want to get there alive. Learn to Ignore the "crazies" I know that guy in the SUV just cut across 5 lanes of traffic without looking..and deserves to have his license revoked! But don't make that your problem. Protect yourself from rec...

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has again instituted the Gifts for Guns program and is asking for local residents to safely surrender any firearms. This program, as in recent years, hopes to reduce the number of firearms in the community, which could potentially be stolen or used in criminal activity.  The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, with the assistance of local churches and community organizations, and with local retail stores are offering $100 gift cards to either Wal-Mart, Target, Von's or Ralph's Grocery stores ($200 for assault weapons) for each firearm surrendered during this program.The largest challenge to this program is to ensure that the local residents understand that this is a completely anonymous process, where we will ask no questions of the perso...

If you happen to be in the Culver City area (south and west of LA) and are looking for a great breadkfast place (and now lunch and dinner on some days), Café Laurent may suit your taste buds.    This little French bistro at the corner of Barman and Overland (4243 Overland, just south of Culver Blvd.) is a delight. With the classic French posters of the black cat ("Chat Noir") and of French waiters, colorful table linens, a staff that is friendly and efficient (you will hear some French spoken here, along with French music), and a tasteful breakfast and brunch menu (omelettes, quiche, salads), this place is a great eatery for a Saturday or Sunday meal before heading out to enjoy the city.      Café Laurent is small, even with the additional outdoor dining patio and it gets crowded on wee...

Ok, I admit it. When I wrote that follow up blog last night I was TIRED...really tired after a long day of work and a long week preparing for the seminar. Then my husband surprised me by coming home early (if you can call 9:30pm early!) and I was anxious to wrap up my blog and spend some time with him. So unfortunately I left out some pretty important details about the Senior Staging Seminar I gave yesterday at the Culver City Senior Center. I hope you don't think I'm beating a dead horse here, but since so many Stagers seem interested in holding similar seminars in their areas, I thought you might be interested in how I structured my talk. I originally got the idea for the seminar from another senior seminar I did with Michelle Minch and Karen Thornton last fall. We spoke to close to 1...

If you saw my blog earlier this week, you'll know that today I gave a free seminar for seniors at the Culver City Senior Center. The seminar focused on Preparing Your Home for Sale in a Soft Real Estate Market and was geared toward seniors who may be ready to move into a retirement community or assisted living but may be worried about selling their homes in a buyers' market. Well it was a great success! There were 10 seniors who attended, and they all gave me wonderful feedback and said they learned a lot from the presentation. One in particular was ready to sell in the near future and had several specific questions. At the end of the presentation, I had one of my Realtor partners give a 5-minute introduction to our next seminar (scheduled for Saturday April 4th at the Keller Williams o...
