Diane wanted to see the poppies, almost every time we go, our destination is the Poppy Preserve in Lancaster. This year Diane wanted to go to Chino Hills instead. I was all for it since I checked, and the Lancaster Poppie Preserve was nowhere near full bloom.Look at the contrast we were in 82-degree temperatures near the poppies and we could see the snowcapped mountains not that far away.So off we went to Chino Hills, and at the same time when we finished watching the bloom, I was 12 miles from one of my land listings, so I decided to take a detour on the way home to check out my listing.Anyway, on the way to the poppies less than a half a mile I saw this house now you tell me what you think? :)Diane & I were amazed at the lucky homeowners who have the view of the poppies.This post was ...

 A New Construction Home for You - 5 Tips to Help Ensure a Great Experience! I am a licensed New Construction Sales Counselor and I love my job. However through the course of my career I have witnessed hundreds of closings and have learned a few tips to share with prospective buyers & (their Realtors.) First as with any endeavor it is critical to have the right expectations. Tip # 1 - Are you purchasing a custom home or a tract home? I use the description "personalized home built on a time schedule," sounds prettier and it's true.It is important that the buyers understand the difference which is more than just price.  A custom home allows the buyers to make all the selections they desire from counter tops, cabinet colors, flooring and more. However a tract home has predetermined options...

What is Surban?Combine the words urban (relating to, characteristic of a city) and suburb (an outlying district of a city, especially a residential one.) Suddenly a new real estate concept is discovered, identified and labeled.Chris Porter, on the podcast - New Home Insights, discussed the combining of terms to identify a new real estate reality in the episode 4: Let's Talk Surban.As lifestyle choices change Surban living is an emerging real estate trend appealing to first time buyers not ready to fully embrace the suburban lifestyle, and at the other end of the spectrum, equity loaded move-down buyers or empty nesters, not willing to leave their communities but no longer desiring or needing the family home.Each demographic shares the same desire for a home in a community with the chara...

Despite a rumor that new construction sales agent have it easy we too are engaged in the fine art of lead generating.  You see at each new construction community the sales team takes ownership of their store. Meaning you get out of the business what you put into it.If you are content with walk-in traffic your sales are probably mediocore or average at best. However is you aspire to earn large salaries, receive accolades and awards, you must give more than the mininum. (As is true in most aspects of life.)Following are list of activities which helps to bring interested buyers through your doors.  Brokerage Presentations at local offices - Outreach efforts targeting the local Realtor associations is one of the first steps. Introducing your community and explaining the builder's process go...

Why buy a new construction home? Some buyers relish the opportunity to put their personal stamp on the house of their dreams thereby transforming a house into a home. Reasons for purchasing a new construction vary from practical - an appreciation of seller provided warranties or the money saving energy efficent features - to the emotional - creating a home for yourself and loved ones.  Several years ago a highly respected Vice President of Sales for a new construction builder shared the following statement, "we are building personalized homes on a time schedule." Today at  Lago Los Serranos in Chino Hills, our first phase buyers have begun the process of personalizing their homes. This can be an exciting, yet scary, event as you're moving through the construction process.  Option select...

Lago Los Serranos, Chino Hills newest townhome community, opened last week amidst torrential rains that weather forecasters initially  titled the "worst storm of the season"  which was a mild exaggeration and a bit of hyperbole. (But we always give the Weather Forecasters a little bit of leeway.)Despite the mud and rain the Grand Opening proceeded to rave reviews. 14 homes initially released shortly became a total release of 23 homes with 17 sold in the first few days. Eager buyers overcame mud, tarps strewn about the entries and protective shoe coverings to enjoy the newly decorated models along with a myriad of wine and cheese offerings. Our grand opening turned into a party as elegantly dressed visitors were chauferred to the entrance. The atmosphere brightened inside while thunder r...
