Jens closes on his new Burbank condo

This is Jens, otherwise known as JB (it's been a month for JBs).  He just closed escrow on his first home -- a great two bedroom condo in east Burbank.  This was supposed to be a video of me handing him the keys, but alas, the film thingy wasn't working on my phone. Fun fact: his backpack contains paint samples. Jens has been a wonderful client and was very eager to learn the ins-and-outs of the home buying process.  I know he and girlfriend Kristy will really have a wonderful time making the condo their own.  Another nice thing: The listing agent on this is an old friend of mine from Burbank.  She showed me a lot of ropes when I was a newbie agent and it was great to work with her again.

Karen and JB closed escrow on their Sherman Oaks condo today!

My wonderful first-time home buyers, Karen and JB, closed escrow on their new home today.  This couple met in college and will be married next year.  Even though they are still in their 20's, they wanted to take the plunge into home ownership and we looked at Sherman Oaks condos for about a month until we found the perfect place. Best of luck with everything, K&JB, and thanks for introducing me to Local Peasant in Sherman Oaks!

Coming soon...Magnolia Park 3+2!

Have you been looking for a single family home in Burbank's Magnolia Park? I just might have something for you.  There are no pictures yet because the sellers are still spiffing it up, and it's not officially on the market until after Labor Day. It has an open floor plan, lots of cool architectural details, two amazing patios, a chef's kitchen and a super saltwater pool, among other things.  It's defined by its unforced naturalness and is certainly not your basic plain vanilla house.

Contact me if you're a serious buyer and if you think this might be right for you.

#StudioCity #celebrity sighting!

Studio City is one of the best places for celebrity sightings that I know of, and here's proof.  This is the actual Rusty, of Rusty's Discount Pet Center in Studio City! I got to meet him on Saturday.  He's a beautiful 19-month old collie, and he's really sweet and well-behaved.  I was too shy to ask to take a selfie with him, though.  The pet supply store is great, too.  It's in the same strip mall as the famed (deservedly so) sushi restaurant, Katsu-ya.
