The event will take place at the Orange County Fair & Event Center from August 31 - September 2nd. What is the Great Labor Day Cruise?   Well, it all began in 1982 when a group of street riders decided to get together and hold an event dedicated to their passion of automobiles. The event started out small, with only a few autos and a small space at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa, California. Today, we continue to be one of the largest and longest running 3 day events in the nation and one of a few that can offer non-stop cruising around a 1.25 mile cruise route set up at the 150 acre...

    I remember back when Real Estate was simpler but not necessarily easier.  I remember having to write up every contract by hand and having to chase clients around for signatures.  I remember when listing presentations weren’t an audition to get “that role”.  I also, remember when clients didn’t ask for a lower commission, and when I carried a huge portable phone.  I remember my days of wearing my gold coat at Century-21 and wearing the Re/Max pin with pride and winning numerous awards and trophies for Top Salesperson, #1 Realtor of the Year, Achievement in Sales, etc.  Those were the Good Old Days! Nowadays, we have computers, cell phones, electronic key openers and e-signatures to make our lives easier, we work harder and have less personal time.  Listing presentations are a casting...

  With summer’s warm temperatures in full swing, it becomes even more important to be mindful not to waste water – as the average MNWD customer uses 70% more water during the spring & summer months. Here's an easy way to use water more efficiently. Do you know how often your irrigation controller is set to water your landscaping? Could your sprinklers be running in the middle of the night or while you're at work & you not know it? Did you know most lawns only need a maximum of eight minutes of watering four days per week to stay green this time of year. Make sure you also verify that the back-up battery is working so your controller doesn't default during the next power outage. And now you know!
