As a Realtor at Dilbeck Real Estate in La Canada Flintridge, I am blessed to work so very close by to Descanso Gardens. It is a huge and beautiful oasis of peace and serenity that is a wonderful place to stop and smell the roses. Literally!  They have many community events there as well. There is a train ride for the little ones, several beautiful gardens, a camillia forest, a tea garden and much much more. They have a plant sale every spring, an Easter Egg Hunt for Easter, a Mother's Day Brunch and several other activities. There is a small entrance fee but it is well worth it. Visiting Descanso Gardens is one of my most favorite things to do in La Canada. I hope you enjoy this music video about Descanso Gardens. If you are interested in watching more of my videos about topics of inter...

Click here for my new video tour of the Broker Open House on Caravan Day in La Canada and Glendale California. Watch as me and a colleague from my office, Efrain Figueroa take you an a journey through some of the homes with our birds eye view style. I would love to have comments on this video idea from any of you out there in cyberspace, Realtors or potential clients! I used to be a television music editor, so this is a fun way for me to do something that most others can't do. The great thing is the short turn around time. This video is uploaded on the same day as the caravan.  Hot of the press as they say!

I am experimenting with a cool idea where I go out on the broker open houses and make a video of my adventures. My hope is to do this once per week so I can keep people informed of what's new on the market in the La Canada, Foothills, and Glendale region. I would love feedback from any of you out there to let me know if this is a concept that is working. click Sue Eller's Video Blog La Canada and Glendale Open Houses to preview.

If you have been watching the news over the past several days, you have probably seen the news about certain Los Angeles area neighborhoods being evacuated due to the rains causing possible mudslide danger.  One such neighborhood is La Canada Flintridge, where we live and work.  Many communities have an Emergency Notification System (commonly called a Reverse 911 system).   This system is used to notify residents of emergencies in their neighborhoods, including warnings and alerts.  Such a system is also employed by various schools and school districts, among other entities. We encourage you to register for such service if it is available in your area.In La Canada Flintridge,  register for the Emergency Notification System by going to the city website here: City of La Canada Flintridge,...

The Station fire started In La Canada Flintridge, and has now moved straight through the Angeles National Forest and is burning in Acton. I had to look at the map to keep my mind around this. Acton is the upper marker.  La Canada Flintridge is the lower marker. View Larger Map

I can see the San Gabriel Mountains from the upstairs window of my home; this was my vantage point yesterday evening as I witnessed the progress of the La Canada Flintridge fire. This photo of a giant smoke cloud was taken at approximately 6:50PM PDT.   This photo was talken at approximately 7:30PM PDT.  The flames have now crossed the ridge.  (Note the shot is zoomed in closer - compare the size of the palm tree in the foreground.)   This photo was taken at approximately 7:50PM PDT, just an hour after the first photo:   Infomation on La Canada Flintridge here.

La Canada, California is an upscale "Leave It To Beaver" type of community about 18 miles north of downtown Los Angeles, nestled in the foothills of the lovely San Gabriel Mountains.  La Canada is home to Jet Propulsion Laboratories "JPL" and also the abode of many entertainment and music industry heavy-weights with young families. Kathryn Hansen lives here with her two daughters, and works as a Real Estate Administrator for Re/Max Tri-City La Canada.  She is also a very accomplished artist with many talents, not the least of which is Pet Portraits.   At first glance, these appear to be extremely fine black-and-white photos. Actually, they are pencil- on-paper original drawings! Kathryn manages to capture both the personality of her subject and the love of the pet owner in these intimat...

We've heard the axiom "A staged home is a sold home"- and this is very true. Staging is all about preparing THE PROPERTY for sale, showcasing it in the best possible light, to appeal to the broadest range of prospects. I've developed a list to explain the staging process, called the Ten Keywords of Staging: 1. Clean 2. De-Cluttered 3. Non-personal 4. Updated 5. Upscale 6. Flowing Floorplan 7. Usable Space 8. Warm 9. Inviting 10. Exciting Today we'll talk about Steps#1 through#3 CLEAN, DE-CLUTTERED, NON-PERSONAL.  Think of it as "Selling your house with a KISS" (Keep It Simple, Silly!) But then of course, SIMPLE is not always EASY...... Nobody wants to deal with another person's dirt, grime, odors, clutter, or personal agendas. Yet, you know if you've been living in your home, it's inevi...
