I lived in Los Angeles for 9 years before I ever went to the South Pasadena Farmer's Market. Who knew? (Thanks, Carrie!). If you live anywhere near the east side of Hollywood, the South Pasadena Farmer's Market is a must see. It is held every Thursday from 4pm-8pm in the Mission District of South Pasadena. This particular Farmer's Market is superior. Not only is there a delicious selection of local produce, of course, but there are musical performers, lots of kids running around, and a diverse group of food vendors making affordable and delcious food (homemade tamales, for example). The vibe is friendly and casual...you just want to stick around for a while and sample all of the delicious food! South Pasadena is such a cute neighborhood, with a hometown feel. I come from a place (State ...

Proof that home staging in South Pasadena works! We staged this cute South Pasadena Tudor cottage on April 1. It sold quickly and now we're destaging it 26 days later! Contingencies were removed on Friday 4/23, but we didn't have time in the schedule to destage until tomorrow. The sellers are thrilled. The listing agent is thrilled. And I'm thrilled to have happy clients. Click on the photo to see more pictures of this cute South Pasadena cottage.

We staged a very nice Tudor cottage last week in South Pasadena. We met the homeowner and within a couple of days we had a signed home staging contract and turned it around very quickly. When empty, the living room looked long and narrow: Adding a Persian rug and appropriately sized furniture makes the living room look proportional and comfortable: The brick red sofas add color and life to an otherwise very neutral white room. The creamy tones of the Persian rug lighten and brighten the space.
