CRAB, MANGO & AVOCADO SALAD Ingredients: 3/4 cup diced mango 3/4 cup diced avocado 10 oz. Dungeness crab meat 4 Tbs. pomegranate reduction or light syrup 4 Tbs. citrus-flavored vinaigrette 4 Tbs. chive oil (see recipe below) 1/2 cup micro greens or spicy sprouts tossed in a small amount of the citrus vinaigrette, for garnish Preparation: To create the “tower,” place a 2-inch ring mold on a serving plate. Spoon 2 heaping tablespoons of diced mango into the mold. Layer 2 heaping tablespoons of avocado on top of the mango into the mold. Finish with 1 1/2 ounces of Dungeness crab meat to fill the mold. Press down lightly to set the ingredients. Keeping your fingers or a spoon on top of the mold, apply pressure, and gently slide the ring mold up and off of the salad. Rinse and dry the mold before moving on to the remaining plates. Garnish the top of each salad with the micro greens. Drizzle pomegranate reduction, citrus vinaigrette, and chive oil on the plate and around the tower. CHIVE OIL Ingredients: 2 bunches fresh chives 1/2 cup vegetable oil Preparation: Blend the chives and oil in a blender for 5 minutes. Place the finished oil into a squirt bottle and set aside. The oil may be made a day ahead of time. Serves: 4

Times certainly have changed. It wasn’t long ago when our area was considered a seller’s market, and buyers were often willing to compromise on amenities, location and even house size in order to become homeowners. However, within the last couple of years, the market has faced some challenges and many homeowners have found it difficult to sell their property. A solution for many is to remodel. Updating and making overall home improvements can put you in a position to sell your home quickly and for top dollar. “For many homeowners, remodeling is essential. As a home-seller, the only way to get the price you want is to offer the home-buyer what they want,” says Bandele Oguntomilade, a Realtor with an architectural design background, and the owner of Bogun Enterprises, a real estate brokerage firm in Woodland Hills, CA. “With the number of homes on the market, if the house isn’t just what the buyer wants they’ll go on to the next, so it’s essential to put your best foot forward.” And your best foot forward could mean something as quick and easy as a fresh coat of paint. “None of us would buy a used car with a bad paint job,” she says. “It’s the same principle.” However, a significant overhaul may be necessary if the house has not been maintained or updated over the years. Yes, the cost of remodeling may be high depending on the work done, but Bandele says the seller could see a higher return on the house and possibly move it off the market faster. And remember, buyers have high expectations today. Your home can’t afford to be less than desirable. So where to begin? According to Bandele, an area of the house that often needs updating is the kitchen.

“Many kitchens have Corian or ceramic counter tops; while granite or travertine slabs are currently preferred. Even just changing the countertop and back splashes can make a big difference.” The same thing goes for appliances. Bandele suggests updating appliances with stainless steel. It’s a move that could make the difference between going into escrow or having the home languish on the market. Sellers may also want to consider flooring options and evaluate how well the kitchen space flows. Updating the bathrooms is another way to add value to a home. “Buyers today are looking for different bathing experiences,” she says. So think luxurious, spa-like retreats with multiple showerheads, steam showers, perhaps even an extended vanity area. New trends in bathroom finishes include mosaic and glass tiles. Bandele frequently encourages her clients to visit the annual Pasadena Showcase of Homes and the Spring and Autumn Home Tour Series sponsored by the Los Angeles Chapter of the American Institute of Architects to familiarize themselves with state-of-the-art trends in home design and remodeling ideas. Another highly desired current trend is creating a home that’s energy efficient. Bandele says, “You want to make sure you’ve installed the correct insulation in walls; ensure that the windows are energy efficient and the HVAC system is up to speed.” A trend that many potential buyers are interested in is whether you’ve remodeled with our environment in mind. If you can incorporate “green” materials and eco-friendly fixtures, you’ve “upped” your desirability quotient, reduced your energy costs, and may have gained some tax benefits! Whether you’re remodeling to better prepare your home for sale or are considering

SUMMER 2009 Hollywood Bowl 2009 June 19th – Sept. 26th 323.850.2000 or hollywoodbowl.com The Hollywood Bowl has many great events in store for their 2009 summer celebration. From jazz to rock, there is something for every music fan to check out. The season starts off with the 10th Annual Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame, where they will be inducting two amazing singers: Josh Grobin and Dame Kiri Te Kanawa. Many more great singers will be performing this summer including Natalie Cole, Faith Hill and the Beastie Boys. If classical is more your style, check out the Tchaikovsky Spectacular with a fireworks display. Summer 2009 at J. Paul Getty Museum June – Sept. 310.440.7300 or getty.edu/museum Soak up the culture and creativity at the J. Paul Getty Museum this summer. Check out one of the inspiring exhibits such as Jo Ann Callis’ Woman Twirling and Carver and Collectors The Lasting Allure of Ancient Gems. Or perhaps you would rather take one of the many tours or be a part of the gallery talks around the museum viewing the architecture and garden or discussing the distinctive art movements of the 18th and 19th centuries. Walt Disney Concert Hall 323.850.2000 or waltdisneyconcerthall.com Designed to be one of the most acoustically sophisticated concert halls in the world, the Walt Disney Concert Hall is truly breathtaking. Not only is the stainless steel exterior a sight to see but the hard-wood paneled main auditorium has created amazing acoustics. Visit the concert hall June 6th to experience the talented vocals and stage presence of Chita Rivera, a two-time Tony Award winner. The month of November brings the amazing talents of Gustavo Dudamel, conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra.

purchasing a property that you’ll be updating, remodeling is an excellent investment – if done correctly. Here are some points to consider and mistakes to avoid: Budget: According to Bandele, one of the biggest mistakes is not setting a realistic budget. “You must be educated on what it costs to do the work,” she says. “If you are not realistic about what you are able to spend, it’s very difficult for the contractor to deliver what you want.” Contractors: The Greater Los Angeles area is flooded with contractors. However, finding somebody who will not just do the job, but do it right and finish it on time, is key to a successful remodel. Bandele suggests inquiring with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and talking with friends, neighbors and your Realtor. In fact, the more you involve your Realtor, the better they can advise you on what improvements will help your home sell and which may be a waste of money. Bandele has resources and referrals available to her clients.

Meeting Your Needs: Be sure to work with a company that will guide you along the way in terms of your needs. For instance, if you’ll be remodeling a home you plan to purchase, it may be wise to bring your contractor in to discuss your desires and how feasible they may be. If you’re selling your home, it may not be worth your time or dime to build an addition to the house. You may also want to work with a company that is familiar with the latest trends in home design. “I can refer interior designers that are trained to go into the home and figure out what’s going to make a home more marketable,” says Bandele Oguntomilade. Remodeling can be challenging and often time consuming. But by doing your homework and finding a contractor with a solid reputation, you can meet your goals – whether you’re trying to sell your house, remodel a fixer-upper, or simply looking to update your home – and find a tremendous amount of satisfaction with minimal hassle.
