Lido Sands - Newport Beach Lido Sands is a gated development of 82 homes located on the west side of Newport Beach.

If you are visiting Newport Beach be sure to stop by and tour our beautiful beaches. You may want to start at the Newport Pier. Known to many us as party central. Here you can stroll on the boardwalk, bike ride, roller blade, or just relax and people watch, it's quite entertaining! You will notice a majority of the homes are rentals and more affordable than other beachfront properties. If you continue down the boardwalk you will end up at the Balboa Pier. Right across from this boardwalk location is the Junior Life Guard Headquarters, there's metered parking here and plenty of shops and restaurants to visit too! Below is a shot of the boardwalk by the Balboa Pier. Next take a ride down to the  Peninsula Point you will find yourself at The Wedge. At this beach you will experience 30 foot...

It's amazing to me how many good buys are out there. Newport Beach a luxury real estate market also has plenty of homes at reduced prices. I held open house this weekend and I was swamped. Non stop buyers coming in looking asking questions. There's that fear of what is happening in the economy, but as I always tell my buyers, if you are planning to purchase a home to stay 5 or more years there is nothing to worry about. Real Estate always goes up. Yes there are the down times, but for the most part Real Estate is a great investment. By the way, the good deals are not just in Short sales or Bank owned properties. There are plenty of sellers with plenty of equity and either need to move because of a job transfer, a new baby arriving, illness, moving down or moving up. Many sellers are rea...

Orange County is a jewel that is finally being noticed. Some of the priciest homes are available presently and many have sold. Today we had broker preview in Newport Beach and one of the homes on the tour was $29,000,000. This home is located on the Oceanfront down on the Peninsula Point. Not only was this home 10,000 square feet, it is on a double lot. It is two separate homes with a beautiful swimming pool between the two homes. One part was the main house, and the other, the fun house. Combined they have a total of 7 bedrooms and 8.5 baths. The grounds were stunning with simple yet elegant plantings, swimming pool, balconies with amazing Ocean views, koi ponds and a cabana. The fun house had a subterranean level with a media room and bar. But the most fascinating part of this room wa...

Cucina Alessá is a fantastic new Italian Restaurant that has opened in the Newport Shores area of Newport Beach. Located at 6700 Coast Highway in Newport Beach, this restaurant features a fabulous menu with a spectacular selection of Italian food. Owner and Chef Alessandro Pirozzi greets his customers and creates a warm and inviting environment. I have had the Pollo Marsala and it is amazing. The Julius Caesar salad is also a favorite with excellent flavors. The Dover Sole is a special, but if you have the opportunity to select it, it is light and full of flavor with a beautiful presentation. Great environment, fantastic chef, and wonderful service. There is an outdoor area to enjoy the great food, and the fabulous weather. For more information, please view Cucina Alessá website. Cucin...

Balboa Island is my favorite spot in Newport Beach. While I dont live there just yet, I know someday I will. I visit the Island at least 3-4 times a week. Usually to walk or run around both the Main Island and the little Island. Sometimes I just go to shop on the many darling shops in town or meet friends for coffee. I really enjoy all the charm the island has to offer. I make it a point to always keep an eye on what real estate on Balboa Island is doing. At the present time there are: 32 homes available for purchaseAverage list price is $2,712,996Average Days on Market 126Average price sold this year so far $2,615,416 Feel free to visit my website  for information on Balboa Island.
