Harb and Co. Real Estate Wrap Up

I assist with two annual fundraisers each year. The largest is for the Pasadena Ronald Mc Donald House. We wrapped that up last weekend. I am fortunate to work with some fantastic ladies; they are tireless in what they do.  Sadly I can be hit or miss depending on what’s happening in my real estate world. Where I can shine is that I can solicit amazing items for our Silent Auction in my downtime. A Realtor spends much of her time waiting. I may be waiting for the inspection and disclosures and finding out which offer will be accepted. During this waiting period, Kris and I make use of our phones and call everyone we know and don’t know, soliciting items for the Pasadena Ronald McDonald Silent Auction.

The second fundraiser I work on is at my church, St. Bede, in La Canada. I am a member of their Italian Catholic Federation. Because of my Ronald McDonald experience, we added a silent auction to our annual Feast of St. Joseph. All proceeds go to charity. This event is in March, and you can purchase my homemade spaghetti sauce (remember, proceeds go to charity) and many other wonderful Italian delicacies, including homemade biscotti.

When I share with you what’s going on at Harb & Co….. you do know it’s filtered. I am not a reality real estate show and can only honestly share so much. So, here’s what’s happening in Harb and Co.’s real estate world:

We closed our Burbank Rancho listing (over asking, multiple offers).

My lovely La Crescenta buyers are wrapping up their inspection items, and we should be moving to closing escrow.

We had multiple offers on my Shadow Hills equestrian home and opened escrow.

The appraisal came in low on my Verdugo Woodlands listing (sigh) and I prepared a strong rebuttal. Because I was previously in mortgage banking, I know how to do this…. but sadly, some of these appraisers are dimwits, so it’s hit or miss. Stay tuned.

Harb & Co. has a new listing coming at some point in Alhambra and continue to prep our Pasadena Spanish listing for sale.

We have an offer on our Glendale automotive listing… and hope to get that in escrow.

We wrote an offer for new La Crescenta buyers…. we wrote $150,000 over the asking price and offered the seller a 60-day rent back for $2.00 – and sadly, we were outbid. It’s tough out there for Los Angeles home buyers.

On a personal note:

During one of my Pilates sessions, I moved the wrong way and got positional vertigo (ugh!) So I am off Pilates until Friday… wish me luck; it’s been awful, I can’t even bend to wash my hair, but fortunately, my favorite hair salon has been washing my hair for me. They are only five minutes from my home, so it’s not been too much of an inconvenience. But with this vertigo… not sure what our Thanksgiving plans are…. I am better each day, but sadly it’s more important for me to get back to Pilates and washing my hair then cooking a Thanksgiving Feast.

My daughter’s Montrose Yoga Studio  is doing well, so I am very grateful.
