We are very glad to report that we received an exceptionally positive response to the first issue. Many compliments on the quality of the magazine, its designs, and most of all, we heard from agents and homeowners about how glad they are to have a real estate magazine that is direct mailed to over 34,000 homes. We have shared a few of these comments with you called, “Agent Testimonials” in this issue. Agents are happily reporting they are receiving phone calls and showings from their advertisements. We are thrilled with the response. In our first issue, we made the claim that we are mailing to “every single home.” We then learned after the magazine went out that we were missing single family homes that are being rented or leased. We immediately checked into this and found it was true. When we received the new home counts for each city, we learned there were several thousand homes missing from our list. Accordingly, we have adjusted our distribution to the following: Manhattan Beach: Hermosa Beach:

10,795 5,092

South Redondo Beach: 10,795 Palos Verdes Area: 8,186

We are now confident we are mailing to every single home in the Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, South Redondo Beach, (Including the Riviera), Palos Verdes Estates, Rolling Hills Estates and Rolling Hills. We now have a total circulation of 34,868 homes by direct mail. Along with our increased distribution we have been fortunate enough to increase our page count to 68 pages this month. We are incredibly thankful to those who continue to support us. We couldn’t have done it without you. We hope you enjoy this second issue of Discover South Bay Homes.

Until Next time,

- Chris Scott

I used to work with Chris when he was selling ads at Easy Reader. He was great to work with then, and he is great to work with now. Recently, he came to our office and worked with us to get our Strand Hill Team in the magazine. He then set out with his daughters to make us a beautiful section and our team is very happy with the layouts and response the ads have brought. I even heard how nice the magazine is while i was in church. GARY RICHARDSON | STRAND HILL PROPERTIES | (310) 480-7694

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful … that’s what this magazine is. In the first issue, I got calls from clients who received it at their house in the mail, telling me how beautiful the magazine is and how nice my profile looked. I also got a call from New Zealand from my daughter telling me that her friends here had sent her a digital copy. People are reading this magazine. It is being verifiably mailed to over 34,000 homes, it is elegant and appealing. I am a big fan. KERRY DAWSON | NW REAL ESTATE BROKERS | (310) 753-5537
