Protect Your Hood...Walk the Dog!

Hi Everybody...

I saw this article from The Atlantic---thought I'd share it with you.  According to this, you can actually reduce the crime in your neighborhood by simply walking the dog or taking a walk with a neighbor--being present is a huge crime deterrent.

Thank you to the LAPD for all that you do!

Weekends In Leimert...

During this March 30thLeimert Park ArtWalk Ben R. Caldwell of Kaos Network is hosting a Leimert Park Plaza "Tactica Media" workshop to look at integrating re-invented payphones, newspaper boxes and other things into a public space design in Leimert Park.
Kaos Network, in partnership with Karl Baumann and Francois Bar at USC will present the Leimert Park Village’s"People Street" concept.
The People Street program concept is being designed for the area on 43rd Place from Degnan Boulevard to Leimert Boulevard.  The purpose is to have our community engage some ideas that will lead us into the 21 century as the Soul of LA.  You'll be able to hang out on the People Street from 1:00 pm to 8:00 pm on Sunday.  The project concept will be submitted to the Dept. of Transportation by the Leimert Park Village Crenshaw Corridor BID, Council District 10 and the LA Dept. of Cultural Affairs in April and we would love to have your support!
A People Street Plaza creates accessible public open space by closing a portion of street to vehicular traffic. Paint or other treatments are applied to the street surface, while large planters and other elements define the Plaza perimeter. The People Street Community Partners will maintain and operate the Plaza, provide movable tables and chairs, public programs and ongoing neighborhood outreach.
Providing expanded public spaces can increase safety for people who walk, bike, and take transit. It also encourages increased levels of walking and bicycling, while supporting economic vitality.  New local gathering spaces can foster a greater sense of community and social cohesion. Plazas can also become centerpieces of neighborhoods, providing venues for events and celebrations. As more pedestrians come to spend time in neighborhoods, the increased activity may support the vibrancy of local businesses.

Giving out the Keys to First Timers....

Hi Everybody... 
The year is off to a great start so far!  Take a look at some of these highlights from my buyers who recently took the plunge into homeownership.

This is the house that Katherine and Anders chose... 

Many of my clients, just like Katherine and Anders, have signed their loan documents by notary at my dining room table---it really makes my clients feel right at home.
I'm there every step of the way, along with Superstar
Notary Sisters, Deseree and Wendy--thanks, Ladies!

We met in my home office prior to looking at homes to review The Buyer's TO DO List.  Knowing what's going to happen before it actually happens is so crucial to getting through the escrow/closing process.
Here's Katherine and Anders at the finish line,
having diligently checked off each step of the process.

Here are your keys!!  Yay!!!
Here are my other two buyers.....Rosa and Chereta, Best Friends and Co-Workers decided to put their money together to buy a house in the Crenshaw District instead of  buying two separate houses in less desirable neighborhoods.  I gave them their keys at Post and Beam Restaurant and we all cried!  Ladies--you too made it through the
Buyer's TO DO List...piece of cake, right?  Hahahahah!
