Have you ever walked into a home and knew what it needed was a family.   Our recent sold property in Rancho Santa Margarita was just that.   You see the kids had moved out, the home had become too large for the owner and it was time to downsize.The seller loved this home, so it was a difficult decision. But in the end a happy one!  Luckily a new family has selected this beautiful house and are eager to make it their new home! The home is in good hands!  We understand when selling a home a slew of emotions come along with it.  Our goal is always to ensure all parties are comfortable each step as we maneuver through the transaction.   Real estate is not about putting a sign in the yard and waiting for a buyer..   It is about making dreams come true for buyers and sellers.  That is what ma...

Where to eat in Rancho Santa MargaritaTapas & Beer A great place to eat in the City of Rancho Santa Margarita is Tapas & Beer.   The food is super yummy, there's always a nice selection of cold beer and the service is great.   The funny thing is that the place looks like your favorite neighborhood dive bar and that's part of what makes it awesome.   All of that plus the cool, comfortable vibe makes it a "go to" spot for us.

Live Oak Canyon | Great Day Hike Near Rancho Santa Margarita Yesterday was a beautiful day for a hike. I love to access the miles of local trails near Rancho Santa Margarita, California. It's so close and easy to get to. Live Oak Canyon was my destination yesterday morning.   I parked my car on Celeste and walked to the end of Altisima where you can pick up the trail. Walking to the top of the hill, there is there are 3 different trails to pick from....I like to go to the left because the trail varies from uphill to downhill. There is a nice place to stop for lunch at the top with amazing views.  One great resource is www.alltrails.com it's a free site (once you register) which gives you information on all our local trails, along with comments from users to help you pick the right one f...

What Is It About In-N-Out Burger? Be An Insider, Know The Secrets   A mere 10 minutes from my house is an In-N-Out Burger (Rancho Santa Margarita). This is wonderful because before that, I had to drive about 40 minutes, round trip, for my burger. You might think this is a long way to drive when on every street corner is some kind of fast food....but anyone who has grown up in Southern California knows that In-N-Out is ALWAYS worth the drive. Let's start with the quality of the food. In-N-Out has total control of their product. They bake their own bread, they use only the best, local produce and they own and operate their own patty-making facility where they create fresh 100% beef patties. Nothing is frozen! While you are in the drive through, you pass picture windows of a sparkling clea...
