It’s spring! Are you ready to take the next step towards home ownership?
I’m hosting another 1st Time Home Buyer Q + A at my house in Echo Park. It will be an evening of great food, drinks and tons of info! Natalie Salins, from Movement Mortgage will pay us another visit to answer all your burning real estate finance questions. And I’ll take you step by step through the process of home buying and we can chat about up and coming local neighborhoods to explore.
Even if you have bought before, but want to talk to a lender or understand the local market better you are welcome to attend. Hope to see you there!
Sunday, May 17th – 5:30 – 8pm. Details will be email to you, once you reserve your spot.

San Francisco is Coming to LA
It is not just those displaced by the San Francisco tech buyers that are moving to Los Angeles, now the young tech tycoons themselves are buying up property in Los Angles. Larry Ellison, Jeff Bezos, Sean Parker and many others have all bought homes in the Los Angeles area recently. For most of them it is considered a second home, in what they consider a discounted housing market. Some are commuting part of the week back to Silicon Valley.
