How Do I Start a Short Sale In Laguna Beach CA One of the toughest decisions facing homeowners in Laguna Beach these days is whether or not to do a short sale.

    WANTED ...   More to improve and fewer to disapprove. More doers and fewer talkers. More to say it can be done and fewer to say it's impossible. More to inspire others and fewer to throw cold water on them. More to get into the thick of things and fewer to sit on the sidelines. More to point out what's right fewer to show what's wrong. More to light a candle and fewer to curse the darkness.    Author Unknown    There are many dreamers in this world and VB is one of those dreamers. For the most part most of VB's dreams have come true, so this has always created more reason for VB to continue dreaming.  The photo above is a HUGE home that over looks the Pacific Ocean in Laguna Beach California. This is only a small portion on this home and VB likes this home, and believes some day in...
