  You can't beat a sunny day in Newport Beach. The weather has been exceptionally nice this weekend. Do you know how often it gets 93 degrees in Newport, in April?????? How about rarely! So I had to go on a walk this morning on Balboa Island and enjoy the views. I hope you do too! It is so peaceful. One of my favorite cottages. You should have seen this before the new owner fixed it up! The Pavilion. If you would like more information on Balboa Island please feel free to visit my website or call me.

The boat show is at Lido Marina in Newport Beach, and each year, docks are brought in to accommodate all the yachts that are on display and for sale.This boat show began on April 9, and goes through April 13th. The weather is beautiful in Newport Beach and it is a fun opportunity to walk around and learn about the different yachts. Eat lunch at one of the harbor side restaurants, and walk around and enjoy the boats.There is more information on the Newport Boat Show here.

First of all I have to say that Balboa Island is one of my favorites spots in Newport Beach. I often, about 2-3 times a week take a short drive down and walk around the island or go on a run. There is nothing more peaceful than arriving early in the morning around 7:00 and enjoy the scenery.This is the view from the bridge going from Main Island to the Little Island. I just love the views! You will find folks on walks at any time of the day. It is also a very pet friendly location. The homes vary, you will find charming beach cottages to the most extensive homes. Here's one of my favorites.Like this home there are so many other gorgeous ones. Can you believe that once some bayfront lots sold for $25.00????? Now try $3,000,000. And yet Balboa still maintains its charm and small town feel...

Should you buy now or wait is kind of a silly question, if you ask me. Every day I have clients ask me this question. I also have people ask me if we have hit bottom. If I knew the answer I would be extrememly wealthy. No one knows when the bottom will hit, until prices go up. Usually we know that when we look back. My advise is if you have the funds to buy now, you should. There are some great buys out there, although not everyone has to sell. If you are testing the market, please dont. Not now. You will be very upset with the offers you will receive. Unfortunately there are the situations where people have bad loans and they do have to sell, relocation is another reason to sell, divorce,death, sizing down, moving up. But once again if you dont absolutely need to, dont! I will on the o...

Summer in February? - Newport BeachThe weather has taken a dramatic change (for us Southern Californians) from last weekend. Last weekend it was rainy and cold, and now it is like summer.

 Living in Newport Beach is very unique. There is no other place like Newport. With the great weather, the ocean, beautiful people, and outstanding shops and restaurants, who wouldn't want to live here? Do you know that about 65% of the people moving to Newport are from other areas? It's a very popular city to relocate to. Therefore, the values of homes here are generally higher than the rest of the state. For more specific information visit my website and go to the home page.
