HEY THERE! I haven’t written to you all year! Hope the first five days of 2019 have been good to you.

MORE CONGRATS for the “Nothing ever sells over the Holidays” file:

CONGRATULATIONS to Fred and Linda on the successful SALE of their fourplex between Christmas and New Years! These longtime clients and real estate investors are always a pleasure to work with.

CONGRATULATIONS to the Harris Clan on the successful SALE of the family home. We closed escrow December 31. Closure is an important word here. These three adult children grew up in this home, swam in this pool, and walked to school through this front door. Saying goodbye to the childhood nest isn’t easy. The memories remain forever, however.

THIS DEAL flopped into 2019, which is not unusual. CONGRATULATIONS to Rod Larmour on his successful purchase of a Lodi home! The Statesman Team’s John Dubois worked hard on this transaction. Another happy beginning!

2019 is already shaping up to be another excellent year. Real estate questions? Ask away!

GREAT OPPORTUNITY, great neighborhood! Lakewood School District! NEW ROOF AND HOT WATER HEATER WITHIN THE PAST THREE YEARS! 408 Palm Avenue is a charming three-bedroom two-bath home with spacious Great Room, tastefully remodeled shower stall in front bath, pleasant kitchen, and more! Secluded, yet close to schools and shopping! 1369 square feet of home for $319,000! Come and see!

I wish you your BEST YEAR YET in 2019!
