Tony’s Blog I remember back in High School when the best way to sell my old Mustang was to put a sign on it and park it at the Miraleste Chevron. Those advertising their car in the local newspaper, Recycler, Penny Saver, and other publications likely saw the car sell quicker and at a higher price. Now lets say you made a decision to hire a professional to sell this car and they were responsible for the photos, the write up, marketing plan, etc. - Would it make sense to hire the professional with minimal marketing presence? We have built one of the strongest direct to consumer brands for Real Estate in the South Bay and I encourage you to join the excitement. Our Facebook Fan page has more than 3,400 followers and is growing weekly at a faster pace then the combined group of all the local publications (Daily Breeze, Easy Reader, and The Beach Reporter). Our YouTube posts reach over 400 viewers within 24 hours of each video post. And with each social media submission we show up on over 15,000 users timelines each day.

717 ESPLANADE, REDONDO BEACH MUCH ADO ABOUT SOMETHING

Tucked behind a solid wood gate and two towering Canary palm trees is a private courtyard and fountain that leads to a 7,028 sq. ft. estate with 100 ft. of ocean-frontage. Cool ocean breezes flow throughout this Mediterranean style home. The panoramic Pacific Ocean views are IMAX-like from each of the four bedroom suites. The infinity pool and spa seem to flow into the sea. From the genuine-period tile patterns to the decorative wood ceilings, from the authentic light sconces to the antique hardware, and whether wood, marble or travertine floors, everything throughout this home was designed in elegant detail. The master suite custom cherry-wood, walk-in closets mirror the level of finish in every room. Five fireplaces provide warmth and charm. The expansive workout facilities face the fountain courtyard and have two large HD flat screens, as well as a full bath. The patio/pool and loggia paver floors and the large al fresco dining deck are radiant heated. Private secure access from the terrace to the beach paths invites those within to venture to the sand to enjoy all that the beach has to offer.

The Palos Verdes Peninsula has had an interesting history in relation to colleges and universities. In the 1920’s, UCLA had studied Palos Verdes as a potential location for the relocation of their campus from north Vermont Avenue in Los Angeles. Palos Verdes developers had offered to donate 1,000 acres in the Peninsula Center area. In the early 1960’s, a new state college was planned at the top of the Peninsula, and briefly held classes as Palos Verdes State College in the Peninsula Center until Cal State Dominquez Hills was constructed. In 1947, a small private independent junior college was founded on the Peninsula. Enrollment reached a peak of only about 100 students. The first graduating class in 1949 was fourteen students. Palos Verdes College occupied the present day location of Rancho del Mar High school, next to the entrance to Rolling Hills near the intersection of Crenshaw and Crest roads. This site was an air force barracks installation during WW II. Elaborate plans for a permanent location at the top of a hill overlooking the valley location of the temporary campus were drawn up but never built. Elin and Kelvin Vanderlip were early patrons of the campus, however fund raising for the campus struggled over the years. One fund raising effort started was the Palos Verdes Homes Tour, which continues today as a fund raising event for the Palos Verdes Art Center. The campus became a four year college in 1954, but the campus finally closed down in 1955. Marymount California University (MCU) is an independent, coed residential college located in the Miraleste area of Rancho Palos Verdes. Marymount was the first Catholic junior college in California and began as a liberal arts college for women in Los Angeles in 1948. In the mid-1960s discussions began on admitting women to the undergraduate program at Loyola University. The affiliation of Marymount College and Loyola University began in 1968 when Marymount’s four-year program relocated to the Loyola University campus in Westchester, Los Angeles. In 1968, Marymount opened its two-year program on the Palos Verdes campus. The merger of Marymount College and Loyola University was completed in 1973 forming Loyola Marymount University. The Marymount Palos Verdes California College remained incorporated as a separate two-year program having received accreditation in 1971. In 1986, the name changed again to Marymount College Palos Verdes.

The college began to offer four year bachelor of arts degrees in 2012 as well as masters degrees in certain studies, which prompted its name change to Marymount California University. Currently, firstand second-year students take core courses at the Palos Verdes campus. Upper division and graduate courses take place at the urban Waterfront Campus in San Pedro. www.southbayhistory.com for more history

INVENTORY STILL A FACTOR

craftsmanship at every step

Inventory (or lack thereof) has been the single most discussed real estate metric in 2013. When you look back several years, you can really appreciate the steady decline in the number of homes for sale in the South Bay. In the chart below, we isolate the month of September, which had almost double the number of homes for sale in 2010 as there were in September of this year!

“There’s nothing like rejection to make you do an inventory of yourself.” - James Lee Burke

1989 and has since been continuously thriving through the volatile cycles of the industry, which is why many of the agents who started with Amir many years ago choose to stay with Merit Real Estate. Today, Amir has the largest inventory

townhouse-style apartment building in the city of Lomita, and a mixed-use project in Hawthorne.” Rodman became interested in real estate not through watching his father’s business grow, but as a student at USC when he majored in Public Policy, Planning, and Development. “It was this that sparked my interest and enticed me to ask more questions and learn more from my father about his business,” he explains. Though he found his interest in real estate independently, Rodman is grateful to be able to work with family. “I am lucky to have a great mentor constantly around to help me learn the business and get past new challenges. With every transaction comes a new, unpredictable challenge, and the best way to deal with that is with the guidance of someone with experience. The

challenging part is reminding myself that he is a colleague with much more experience than me, and to be learned from. At times, I find myself thinking like a son, that his methods may be outdated, but I find that his experience usually proves me wrong in my doubts.” Rodman’s specialty is Redondo Beach neighborhoods. He grew up in Redondo Beach and Merit Real Estate has always been based there, seen as a sort of neighborhood expert. “Each area in the South Bay has its own unique identity, but what we all have in common is the lifestyle. We are the best kept secret of LA…we have the LA scenery and weather, without the LA lifestyle. We move at our own pace, and embrace more of the laidback, beach lifestyle, contrary to what most would think of the LA area.” Right now in Redondo Beach, the real estate business is constantly in flux: “Interest rates are all over the place. They have been going up and down unpredictably over the past couple months and that has led to a recent slowing of the market. I don’t think this is necessarily a bad thing. In 2013, multiple offers on properties became the norm. Impulse buyers came out of the woodwork, as the cost of financing was at record lows. Now, the serious buyers who are still in the game regardless of rate fluctuations will be able to make a move on a property they want, and not have to deal with 10+ competing bidders, as was so common.”

Making everything from chairs to side tables right in the store, he also constructs bookshelves, dressers and farmhouse tables. While Toney likes to use recycled wood when possible, he often works with pine when making new things.

Also putting time and effort into every display at the store, Curious has things clearly separated. Toney jokes that the first floor is the ‘fun side’, while the second floor is the ‘serious side’ with all of the furniture. On that ‘fun side’ is a camper that Toney took apart and then reworked to make into a retail space. Understanding the value of the dollar, Curious makes it a priority to offer items at reasonable prices. So much so, that every price already includes tax. “It is great to
