The market has been extremely interesting these past few months.  We have seen tremendous growth in some communities, and slow growth in others.  I like to call communities that are appreciating heavily “communities in transition.”  There are a few local communities in our area that are worth exploring, and I highly encourage you to look at the data to see if you agree.  La Habra Heights and Northern El Monte are 2 of my favorite communities in transition.  They are both attracting higher end builders, and residents.  Values in both communities have skyrocketed these past 6 months when prices in most southern california communities have not.  I encourage you to contact me with your real estate goals so that we can build you a roadmap to realizing them.  I am more than happy to offer up my opinion and advice on your scenarios, so don’t hesitate to give me a call.  Have a great 2014!

I have been working in real estate related matters for over 13 years. I graduated valedectorian from Gladstone High School in 2001, was active in the US Army JROTC program and attended the prestigious California Boy's State program. I later received a degree in Political Science from UC Davis in 2005. While in Davis I made the Dean's list, was a member of the Davis Honor's Challenge program, and attended the prestigious UCDC program in Washington DC where I interned under the Director of Domestic and Foreign Policy (Dr. Gabriela Lemus) for the Executive LULAC office. I have been fully licensed since 2005, and working full time in real estate since I returned to Los Angeles from my 4 years in Davis. I have personal experience in nearly every facet of real estate imaginable: I have purchased and sold many assets. I also manage my own rentals, and teach my clients how to screen out tenants if they opt to manage their own rentals as well. I teach my clients how to treat their homes as assets that can be leveraged to acquire more assets, and pretty much teach my clients that anyone can be an investor with a seasoned Realtor by their side. If you have real estate needs, what are you waiting for?
