Living in Encino affords residents the chance to enjoy all the lovely perks that Hollywood and its production companies have to offer, like studio tours, audience participation on your favorite shows, celebrity sightings and of course, Universal Studios. Located right off the 101 freeway, it's a convenient and fun way to entertain the whole family.   The highlight of Universal Studios is the rides. They are spectacularly produced and action-packed, just like the movies they embody. Some of the classics are Terminator 2: 3D, Jurassic Park The Ride, featuring a 50-foot T-Rex, and an 84-foot plunge, and Backdraft which blasts visitors with 10,000 degrees of entertainment. New rides include the highly-acclaimed Simpsons Ride and The Adventures of Curious George which are sure to blow the ki...

The Valley is bustling with events this time of year but one of the local favorites is the Halloween Harvest Festival at Pierce College because there truly is something for everyone, from families, to teenagers, to grownups on a romantic date. Activities abound for children including live shows, a pumpkin patch where you pick out your own pumpkin, a giant slide, bounce houses, train ride, carousel, petting zoo, hay rides, rock climbing, bungee bounce, pony rides, bumper boats, haunted house and corn maze. If you manage to make it through all that with your little troopers, you can count on an early bedtime - you may even want to pack their PJs in the car!  For the big kids, things get a little spookier after sunset. The festival turns into the Fright Fair Screampark featuring the Factor...

Are you looking for the perfect home? Among the homes I currently have available, there is one that epitomizes what southern California style is all about - the magnificent 5,619 square foot, Hayvenhurst Estate.   This seven-year-old, gated, Mediterranean home features the lovely white stucco, tiled-roof look that dominates much of the skyline, but it is the attention to detail and luxurious touches inside that set this home apart.

No matter where you live within Encino, there are a handful of benefits unique to its residents. For those who are considering a move to this area, you too, could be privileged to share in the wonderful amenities our community has to offer. Our location amongst greater Los Angeles makes it easy to navigate the area thanks to the 101 and the 405 freeways. We are in the San Fernando Valley, just moments from the Burbank Airport, between Glendale and Calabasas. Another advantage is the abundance of lush landscapes thanks to the main aquifer that runs directly below our community. This allows us to be close to the urban lifestyle of Los Angeles, while enjoying the outdoor benefits of green hills and foliage-filled parks. We are moments from Topanga State Park which contains 36 miles of hiki...

By Carol Wolfe I love this time of year.  There is still the warmth of summer but there is also a new breeze this time of year that picks up in the late afternoon. It whispers of the more moderate temperatures that will last all winter long.  For me this time of year is about home.  The kids are back in school, the holidays are still far enough away that it is time to just concentrate on home.   Home should be a place that welcomes and soothes.  For many right now home is a source of stress.  For some it is a result of an impending interest adjustment that is causing stress, for others it is a lack of space to accommodate a growing family.  What ever the reason, it is never a good idea to experience stress because of your home.  And now is a great time to be home shopping.  If you would...

By Carol Wolfe If you or your spouse are 55 years or older and you are interested in selling your current home to move to or within Los Angeles you may be interested to know that there is legislation that could save you a considerable amount of money on your property taxes.  Propositions 60 and 90 were designed to create property tax relief for seniors wishing to buy replacement homes of equal or lesser value. There are significant qualifications that must be met in order to qualify for these programs but it is well work looking into.  If you are unsure whether you qualify for these benefits give me a call and I will be happy to look at your current situation and explain how this legislation can help you in these challenging economic times. I'm Carol Wolfe and nobody does it better!

By Carol Wolfe With so many things to see and do in our diverse and amazing corner of the world, it can be overwhelming picking a fun family location for a bit of fun.  I like to keep things simple.  With gas prices so high, why not stay close to home and enjoy all of the benefits of living in our modern day paradise?  One of my favorite destination spots year round is Lake Balboa.   Located in the Anthony C. Beilenson water recreation facility within the Sepulveda Flood Control Basin, Lake Balboa is a 27 acre fun filled lake.  Activities at the lake include fishing, boating, kayaking, jogging, walking and a remote control boating cove. There are barbeque pits, children's play areas, picnic tables, pedal boats and much more.  While there is no swimming there are plenty of other activiti...

by Carol Wolfe If you have never been to The Japanese Garden in Van Nuys it is time to plan a day trip.  We live in such a diverse and wonderful area that it is sometimes easy to overlook the most amazing places even if they are practically in our own back yard.  This is one of those amazing places. This 6 ½ acre authentic Japanese garden is open to the public Monday through Thursday from noon to 4pm and on Sundays from 10am to 3:30pm.  Visitors are not admitted after 3:15 pm as there would be insufficient time to stroll the grounds.  During the summer the gardens offer evening strolls on select Tuesdays and Thursdays.  They advise that you call before attending on any day to make sure that they are not closed for private events. Direct from their website, "...fashioned after "stroll ga...

By Carol WolfeYou can tell a lot about a community by the services that it provides for both its citizens and their four legged friends.  By this gauge Encino measures up nicely. The Encino Dog Park is the showcase of the day. For those of you unfamiliar with this lovely park it is located at 17550 Victory Boulevard.  The park is open from dusk to dawn six days a week, on Friday mornings the park does not open until 11 am.  Parking is ample and there are three main areas to the park.  There is a picnic area where dogs must remain on leash, a small dog area  and a 5 acre off leash area guaranteed to give even the largest dog plenty of room for a healthy run.  The Encino Dog Park is a wonderful community gathering place for those who cherish their furry companions.

by Carol Wolfe Encino is a beautiful place to live. Even its name represents its picturesque beauty.  Encino was named after the Rancho Los Encinos, literally translated as the Ranch of the Evergreens.  This was the name for the area which was given to the Gabielino Indians by the Spanish government after they left the California Missions in the early 1800s.  Established in 1845, Rancho Encino was a hub of activity.  Its rich water sources and springs made it a desirable place to live.  In the late 1800's the Encino Roadhouse was built and Encino became an important mail stop between Los Angeles and San Francisco.   In the early nineteen hundreds the community of Encino began to grow and diversify.  Today Encino continues to be hub of activity; it remains rich with green foliage and exc...

by Carol Wolfe I am a big fan of new technology, whether it is the ability to email from my phone or the new fangled washing machines that use less water and detergent.  I enjoy the change that progress has made in our lives.  However, one thing I am old fashioned about is customer service.  Technology has yet to come up with anything as helpful as a real person at the other end of the phone line who cares about your business and genuinely wants to be helpful.   We all have horror stories of epically bad customer service. I heard one story from a close friend the other day that seemed to sum it all up.  After spending a sizable amount of money with a company, who shall remain nameless, and getting unbelievably bad service my friend called the customer service hot line.  Shockingly she d...

$4.5 million home staged in Encino CA by Moving Mountains Design Home Staging. This week Moving Mountains Design Home Staging had the absolute pleasure of staging a luxury estate in Encino, CA. This new construction Mediterranean home located "South of the Boulevard" (code word for "the right side of the tracks") was built with the finest quality hand hewed black walnut hardwood floors, granite, marble and imported tile. I love working with this builder because they spare no expense in building their homes and they are beautiful. Here is a link to a Sherman Oaks home we staged for this builder, which recently sold.
