My favorite restaurant in Beverly Hills, CA is Crustacean Beverly Hills. Crustacean Beverly Hills serves Asian fusion cuisine and is located at 468 N Bedford Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90210. Known for being a place where you can often find celebrities, celebrities such as Magic Johnson were known to dine there once a week.Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, the restaurant underwent a major eight-month renovation and was temporarily closed. The aquarium built into the walkway was the feature that most impressed me before it was redesigned. As you walked in, you were on clear glass and could see fish and other aquatic species beneath you. Now there's a lot to like after the $10 million renovation.When it comes to the menu, I recommend the garlic noodles as one of your sides and the crab that come...

Selling a home in today’s market certainly has its challenges, not only in the Greater Los Angeles area, but everywhere. Let’s add seasonal factors depending on where you are selling your home.  It’s worth mentioning the holidays, having children and/or pets to what I call the ‘extras’ for planning on selling a home.  The key factor is proper preparation. (I haven’t even brought any current political concerns into the picture.)If you live in LA and are considering selling but waiting, a date to keep in mind is April 1st 2023 when Measure ULA, as passed by voters this past November, will take effect.  Measure ULA means that properties that sell above $5 million will be taxed an additional 4% after April 1st, 2023. Properties that sell over $10 million will be taxed 5.5%; this is in addit...

Life is good if you live in the greater Los Angeles area...I was reminded today by our friend  Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho   as he sent me a great email with some wonderful photos. Needless to say, they were some Blizzard Photos and he laughed that I was complaining about putting on a sweater and a jacket when the temperatures dropped to the mid-fifties and low sixties as I walked Holly our dog.Indeed, we have no right to complain about our weather. As I looked out in our backyard and took these photos of our tangerine tree.Clearly you will agree we have no right to complain. Thank you Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho  reminding me what is important and what is not. Hope you forgive me using your photo.  Now if you are considering coming to Los Angeles, please reach out to me. Wi...

Moving OnDivorce in not easy. Even the most amicable separation is plagued with disappointment, lack of communication, and failed expectations.  In the best-case scenario, two people who are disolving their union will work together to resolve their differences productively and part ways, hopefully without drawing blood.Unavoidable, though, during the process you and your spouse's emotions will fall prey to a myriad of change as the family, marriage and shared assets are legally separated.Adding to the stress is the sale of the family home, which is typically the largest asset of the marriage. This can evoke tremendous emotions: sadness, anger, sentiment and tremendous disappointment, to name a few.  The combination of the stresses of the divorce with the sale of the family home requires...

Happy Thanksgiving to all who read this post. I am thankful for another year coming soon to an end.  Nevertheless, I am still working to the finish line, Holidays or not.I am equally thankful for this amazing community that we are on, Active Rain that is. I am also grateful as well for the community I get to work in. How many people can say their real estate office is in Beverly Hills on Rodeo Drive?I always cherish every moment being together with friends, family, coworkers and my furry family.Those of you who know me well, know that to me Thanksgiving is one of the most important Holidays of the year.  Since Thanksgiving's history goes back to when the Pilgrims arrived in the United States and were greeted by the Natives. The earliest of Immigrants.As a legal Immigrant, my parents alw...

Owning vs RentingAre you emotionally ready?  Can you handle the stress? A big factor to consider when buying a home is stress. The Holmes and Rahe stress scale, ranks buying a home in the top 43 most stressful circumstances in life. Four events are specifically home related, change in financial estate (No. 16), large mortgage or loan (No. 20), change in living conditions (No. 28), and change in residence (No. 32). If someone has recently made other life changes such as marriage (No. 7), switching careers (No. 18), having a child (No. 14).. It may be wise to postpone buying a home. Stress overload can lead to missed payments.  Wich can destroy credit or even lose your home. It's better to rent if you life in in a flux, and then buy when your stress levels are lower.Are you ready for comm...

Speechless Sunday: Guess who is coming to dinner...  Diane insisted on us leaving the house. There was a play that she wanted to see. One of her coworkers was in it.... Well reluctantly I agreed. No, it was not Spencer Tracy & Sidney Potier, but it was incredibly powerful, and I laughed and cried at the same time. Great acting great performance.Not having seen the movie in decades it all bought back wonderful memories and a better perspective of the movie. How appropriate in today's times. I also miss Sidney Potier's kind and laid-back personality. I still see him patiently waiting for his car in front of Spago the Restaurant... oh about 15 years ago:)  Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments. If you are looking for a knowledgeable, focused and goal-orien...

Having been on Active Rain for all these many years has been both rewarding and beneficial for me. The reasons are too many to mention, so I'll simply say this from both a real estate and a personal perspective.  And no this is not a post about being grateful for being on Active Rain😊 (even though I am).  One of the joys all of these years has been the Thanksgiving Active Rain Challenge when Debe Maxwell, CRS  asks us to share what we are grateful for three or four times during the month of November.   I once read that pets are a great source of social and emotional support for their humans, and very likely the only living being that will love and accept you unconditionally. This inspired me to do some internet research and, interestingly enough, pets were in the top 10 of just about ev...
