People in Rancho Santa Margarita lead very busy lives, and often fixing a meal becomes a low priority.  That doesn't mean we have no cooks.  Friends meet around the table for some very fine cuisine ... but there are those days where you want to forget shopping, cooking, cleaning, and coordinating.  Dining out is actually one of the first things a new buyer in RSM considers.  That time of moving, unpacking, and putting away all of your "things" can be a real tiring period.  A quick, yet enjoyable, meal may be quickly on your mind. Fortunately, this community has an abundance of dining opportunities, from the standard fare of quick food / take out options, to some more exotic options.  We even have our own historical site where President Nixon enjoyed a fine steak dinner in the trees of L...

10 Things To Do Before You Sell Your Home In Rancho Santa MargaritaAre you planning on putting your home up for sale? The current market in Orange County California and especially Rancho Santa Margarita, is red hot! Properties are literally flying off the shelf (as if they could fly!) because of continued low interest rates and a critically low inventory level. Most for sale listings I have visited in the past few weeks are getting multiple offers (many that are over asking price) and are opening escrow just after a few days on market.I am also seeing open houses with 75-100 visits (groups/families...not individuals) on a Saturday AND Sunday. And the agent is asking for all offers to be submitted by the following Monday! This "perfect storm" of supply, demand and interest rates is a won...

Restaurants In Rancho Santa Margarita - IN-N-OUTSouthern California started the hamburger revolution in America with two brothers named McDonald when they opened their joint in San Bernardino, CA, but the standard by which all burgers are judged has got to be IN-N-OUT. Their newest restaurant was opened today in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA just a few blocks from my office! Oh, the suspense when we first heard that the company had received city approval to build their new restaurant. I've watched with anticipation and they broke ground, poured foundations, added the signature crossed palm trees to the landscape and brought the building up from out of the ground. Finally, today, an IN-N-OUT Double-Double burger is awaiting my order!This family owned, regional chain has expanded carefully f...

    Two months ago today, I lost my husband. Well, to be fair..I know where he is. He's in a San Francisco 49er Popcorn Tin in my family room....that's an entirely different post. :) But I digress! In keeping with the traditional Armenian tradition, I'm ending my mourning today. Depending upon the source, Armenians hold a memorial service 40 days to 2 months from the date of death. And then they are done. I'm going to "celebrate" this official ending by having lunch at his favorite restaurant. Not alone...my brother and his wife are coming with me. And I'm not saying this will be easy...but I haven't even been able to drive by the restaurant before now, so it's a big step. The restaurant is Hanna's in Rancho Santa Margarita. They make the best Pastrami Ruebens!! Yum! That was my husban...

Are you considering buying a home when the market is right? Do you know how to find out when that will be? Keeping in touch with what is going on and having the right person watching over the real estate market for you would be a good thing. Realtors pride themselves in researching and evaluating all the data that is available, to see how it will benefit their clients. There are news reports every day that the market is going up, that it is going down, buy now, buy next year, sell, don’t sell, how can you possibly know what to do, if the so called experts can’t agree on what to do? Most of the time, the news that is reported, isn’t right here in your neighborhood but a generalization of the whole country or at best a large metro area. You can get the facts for your neighborhood from a R...

New Movie Theater in Rancho Santa Margarita. If you've been past the Edward's 6 Theater located at the east end of the Target shopping center off Santa Margarita Pkwy, you'll notice that the signs are down and construction crews are remodeling the building. At first look I thought they might be converting the theater into a large retail space for a big box retailer or grocery chain, but upon further investigation I found that it is being converted to a luxury theater operated by Cinepolis. It will feature extra wide leather, reclining seats with a footrest, wait service at your seat, restaurant and bar service. According to their website, the menu will include "movie favorites, gourmet finger food, wraps and panninis, sushi and seafood, desserts, coffee and wine, spirits and beer." I do...
