Tony’s Blog I know a lot of people that are financially savvy, as in they know where their money is invested, know the risk levels in their portfolio as a whole, and are aware of where other opportunities exist for the tolerance levels meeting their lifestyle. It’s a level of intelligence I didn’t inherit from my blue collar parents, however, in my young adult years I gravitated towards anyone who would lend me their experiences. I’m not only talking about folk with significant funds in their account, in fact, I recall the proud moment I changed from one credit card company to another saving me $300 per month in interest expense - to put in perspective, I was only earning $12 per hour in the day! Real Estate works from the same knowledge base and did you know your home in Palos Verdes Estates, South Redondo, and Manhattan Beach has been an incredible investment yielding double digit gains in the past year alone? Somewhat of a surprise was the poor performance of Hermosa Beach with about a 2% yield overall; a sign that demand is mostly in the young family demographics. Armed with the knowledge of this trend in the market are the Buyers making over asking price offers to beat out the competition. Smart, because paying 2% over the asking price last year made them 8% in value while the second place player on the same property could still be shopping for a “deal”.

COVER 2304 N POINSETTIA AVENUE 5 BEDROOMS | 4.5 BATHROOMS It’s a home which stands on its own in a fluid Urban Morrocan style. The collective sum total of its design and detail presents the perfect symmetry expected by affluent buyers and critics alike. Once you step into the courtyard of this Tomaro designed home you feel as if you’ve stepped into another world which lends itself to a brilliant question of which room is the best; could be the bedroom with 3 sides of large picture windows, French doors and hip ceiling that overlook the tree tops and the interior courtyard below; or possibly the master bedroom with flat screens, balcony, large walk-in closet, spa bath with jacuzzi tub, dual shower heads and skylights; or maybe the front guest room with its prestigious style arched French doors adorning the room with lots of natural light and outside balcony. It’s a good quandary to have while considering the rest of the home; The 481 sf basement marries a children’s playroom/media room, bar, private bedroom and full bath in a way that will make your guests never want to leave (unless you ask them to!). Solid wood windows and doors, foyer with grand circular staircase, mood lighting and skylights throughout, extensive use of arches and alcoves, Sub Zero, Thermador and Bosch appliances, 3rd floor laundry, two security systems, two fireplaces, two-zone AC & heat, soft water system and central vacuum are just a few of the treats this house offers. Some of the designer finishes include wall to wall seagrass carpet, eclectic light fixtures, urban landscape and an in-ground salt water jacuzzi. The various use of outdoor spaces make this home not only a designer’s dream but also a tranquil and unique environment to both entertain and raise a family.

You’ve got your side dish and bottle of wine at the ready, but the minute you arrive, you’re asked to roll up your sleeves and join the other guests in making potstickers. Intimidating? Not if your friend is Anne Conness, executive chef and partner at Tin Roof Bistro and Simmzy’s in Manhattan Beach. Chef Conness recently dished with South Bay Digs about beer for dessert and what chefs really do after a long, hard day at work.

IN THE KITCHEN

South Bay Digs: You majored in English literature, spent time as a TV producer, and now you’re a chef. When did you realize that food was your passion? Anne Conness: It took me a long time to figure out what I wanted to do. I kept trying different things and I found out cooking was really it for me. As far as connecting with food, it happened when I was a student at Georgetown. A friend of mine invited me to dinner at Jean Louis at the Watergate. I had never tasted anything like it in my life! I loved

SBD: What advice do you have for home cooks? AC: Delegate. A lot of times we want to take it all on.

Machado Lake is located in the Ken Malloy Harbor Regional Park bounded by Anaheim Street, South Vermont Street, Pacific Coast Highway and the 110 Freeway in Harbor City. The regional park, at 241 acres, probably contains the greatest bio-diversity of any like sized site in Los Angeles County, but certainly in the coastal section of the county. The lake was named for Antonio Machado, who had married the widow of Jose Dolores Sepulveda (who first laid claim to Rancho de los Palos Verdes in a dispute with the Dominquez family over rights over part of Rancho San Pedro in the early 1800’s) shortly after Jose died in 1824. Historians suspect that the subsequent union of Machado and Sepulveda’s widow came about so she would have a husband to protect the Sepulveda family’s claim to the land and the lake, which later bore Machado’s name. Machado lived where the golf course sits today. Juan Capistrano Sepulveda, stepson of Antonio Machado and one of two sons of Jose Dolores Sepulveda, built his adobe home near the intersection known as “Five Points” in San Pedro, which is the convergence of the following five streets: Palos Verdes Drive North, Gaffey Street, Anaheim Street, Vermont Avenue and Normandie Avenue. The casa was located on the bluff on the northwest side of this intersection, possibly the site of the trailer park, and the casa overlooked Machado Lake. The lake is generally considered to have been an “oxbow,” or “bend in a river,” from the L.A. River’s location at some point in the past. It was tidal at some point as well. Many effects are still present, such as beach sand and many “sea shells” in some areas. Going back to the earliest of known times, it was a center of Native American habitization locally, with several villages around it over the years. The water at Machado Lake was so clean that it used to be called “Sweet Water.” When the Spaniards invaded from Mexico and enslaved the Native Americans, it remained at the center of activity, with trading posts (the “Casa de Sangre” at 5-points), etc. around it. The riparian willow forest around the lake was named Canada de los Palos Verdes in the mid-1600’s by the explorer Sebastian Vizcaino. The site was known as Bixby Slough for some time when owned by the Bixby family of Long Beach in the late 1800’s (a sign on PCH at the Wilmington Drain still calls it such). For many years, Lake Machado and the aquifer surrounding the lake was the primary source of drinking water for the Palos Verdes Peninsula once development began in the early 1920’s.

The city of L.A. purchased the lake in the 1950’s to preserve it as open space in the big city. It was officially developed into a park in the very late 1960’s. That was when the lawns and facilities were put in on the west side of the lake along Vermont Avenue. www.southbayhistory.com for more history

WRIT TEN BY HEI DI WALTER Darren Pujalet, an agent at Shorewood Realtors, has a background as unique and out-of-the-box as his approach to real estate in the South Bay. A musician, he spent a decade working in the music industry before deciding that he was exhausted from touring and going on the road and decided to follow in his sister’s footsteps. “My sister’s a broker down in San Diego and I’d been studying real estate development and highest and best use of the property for a long time,” he explains about his decision to become a real estate agent.

Real estate is, of course, dramatically different than working as a musician, but Pujalet appreciates the control an agent has over their career. “What you put into it is what you get out of it, whereas music is a day to day, based on a lot of other people. I knew that if I just got in and rolled up my sleeves and really absorbed it, and was passionate about it, I would be successful.” Pujalet specializes in the beach cities, mainly, of Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, and Redondo Beach, but does work on the Palos Verdes Peninsula as well. He’s sold property in Hollywood, Orange County, and San Diego, but considers himself an expert on the beach cities. His take on the current, immediate state of real estate in the beach cities is detailed. “Everyone knows about the inventory and that it’s very tight right now,” he expounds, “and most people know that interest rates are fluctuating and have seen a slight increase. There’s myriad different reasons why they fluctuate; they can’t stay this low forever. However, we did see a bump in late July/early August, a raise in rates, and then we saw a fluctuation recently when there was an uprising in Syria and there was talk about potential war. That always tends to shuffle money into bonds and that’s what supports interest rates being lower. So, we’re going to see a large fluctuation in interest rates and inventory — I don’t know if it’s going to increase, I would have thought it would have increased by now and there are definitely more buyers out there than homes for sale. The fact that there are more buyers than sellers is creating the frenzy with multiple offers, coupled with the fact that people think that interest rates are going to go up. And the South Bay is always a desirable place to live. It’s the last place to be affected in a downturn and the first place to recover.” Just about every listing he’s had this year has come and gone fairly quickly due to the state of the market. “If it is priced well, it goes really fast,” he clarifies. Why sell in the beach cities? Well, he says, “People overuse, but can’t overuse, that when you buy a home here, you’re buying a lifestyle. You have access to the beach, you have amazing weather compared to the rest of the country, you have higher-end clientele here, and you have access to a large metropolitan city and a lot of cultural events. It’s a great place to live. People come here from all over the world and have kept it a desirable place to live.”

EEK! table WRIT TEN BY QUINN ROBERTS

“It really is a unique, one-of-a-kind table that has a different aesthetic,”

For as long as Terry Tomsha can remember, he’s been creating things. Trying to make a table out of his brothers old crib when he was just seven years old, Tomsha has moved on to sleeker designs and higher quality materials

Tomsha said. “I don’t use straight lines, I find them boring. I wanted to challenge myself and present something new.” While Tomsha originally created the EEK! Table for the bedside, it can easily

company Atomic Jellyfish in Denver. The table, with its mid-century modern design, is made of walnut veneered

“While it may be a simplistic design, the details and lines make it unique.”

said. “I wanted to figure out the best way to use the material and have only a minimum amount of waste.” Customers can choose from seven different shapes and colors to create the table, which costs $395. Yet, Tomasha said a customer can use any other colors outside of the seven for an additional $40.

Opening their shop over 19 years ago, it has been the goal of owners Royce and Mike Morales to have ‘meaningful creations for your soul’. “It is critical for a place like this to be in the village,” Royce said. “We have lost so many stores like this in the South Bay. We need to have diversity of shops in every community and I think we help with that in the village.” While Harmony Works has been in a few different locations throughout the Riviera Village, it moved into its new home at 1911 S. Catalina Avenue in August. That fresh start has included plenty of renovations to the space, along with some fun artwork on the outside of the building. The Morales’ decided to commission local artist Gina Steiglitz to paint a colorful tree of life on the outside of the building, which is full of birds, dolphins and flowers.

“It has to have some kind of message to it, and almost be soul nurturing, whimsical and fun,” said Royce. Harmony Works is a huge proponent of showcasing locals artists who paint, make jewelry and hand craft ceramics. Some of those include: Penny Noble, Taira Ceramics and The Kristina Collection. Outside of the South Bay, Harmony Works offers items from places like Bella Luz Studio in Seattle, Yardbirds in Louisville, Kentucky and the Soap Exchange in Victoria, British Columbia. “We have been on the cutting edge for a long time because we were promoting green products,” Mike said. “We have become involved in things with

Recent Client Testimonial: “I’d like to thank Regan and express my gratitude for helping me and my wife purchase our first home. Before we met Regan we were working with two different mortgage lenders whom we knew very well to try and secure a loan, and in the process we came to a dead end due to our circumstances. When we told our real estate agent that we were unable to move forward, he recommended that we speak to Regan. Regan immediately presented us with a few different options that none of the other multi-year experts had suggested. With Regan as our guide, we opted to move forward and Twenty days later, we were happy and proud first time homeowners. I cannot thank him or recommend his services enough.”
