Hey, did you happen to see.....

Last month I changed the layout of this magazine a little.  On the inside back cover I put a home I had listed in Palm Desert at The Lakes Country Club.  It was a spectacular home in a wonderful community and I couldn't resist sharing the listing with you.

I met Janet and Harvey through an associate, Sharon Leibl.  They are a wonderful couple and I really enjoyed getting to know them.  When they bought their home ten years ago they completely remodeled it.  Nothing was left to chance.  Janet worked very hard to be sure everything was 'just right'.  They spared no expense and it showed.

Janet's criteria in choosing this home was that it be in a wonderful gated community; that it not be on the golf course (she sought peace and quiet), that it have a spectacular view, and be the right size.  Not a small shopping list.  After finishing the remodel she had her dream home and planned to stay there for a long long time!  But things change, life changes and then visions of boats came into her husband's head and suddenly living in the desert wasn't very accommodating and it seemed they would be better off at the Beach.  So with that in mind, they listed their home and started searching in Newport Beach.

Listing their home in Palm Desert with an agent in Long Beach was a difficult decision.  They graciously gave me the opportunity to do a listing presentation.  Janet told me later, once she saw my presentation, there was no doubt in her mind that I would do the best job for them.  Their search in Newport Beach ended in them finding exactly what they want and now Janet fills her time with another renovation.

Janet and Harvey have been married for over 60 years and are as blissful as a young married couple which is inspirational.  Thank you for entrusting the sale of your home to me and for giving me the chance to get to know you both and be part of this next phase in your life.
