The sellers are just completing a whole home contemporary remodel that will include fresh paint, wide-plank flooring, 2” white slat custom blinds, G.E. stainless steel appliances, remodeled baths including beautiful double shower & quartz/granite counters.  Anderson/French sliding doors from both masters and living room lead to a ‘grassy’, private back yard perfect for relaxing or entertaining under the drop string lighting that run from tree to tree. There is a walk-in closet in one master and a wall of closets in the other. Full-size inside laundry room w/ storage off leads to direct access garage w/ epoxy floors, storage & newer water heater. Each bedroom has its own linen closet so it is great for roommates. After a long day at work, you can relax your cares away in the nearby pool & spa. This pristine community is situated next to exquisite Serrano Park homes with walking trails, greenbelts and parks all around. Only a few miles from the Irvine Spectrum businesses, entertainment & dining venues!  A short stroll to shopping and eateries. This condo looks like a model and will blow out right after its Outback Steakhouse luncheon!

Sold – New Record High Sales Price for Lake Forest Shores

LakeShoresExteriorThank you to the visitors who attended my Sailwind Way Grand Opening Open House on Saturday.  I am excited to let you know the final score!

The buyer wanted to buy the home for full price the moment it came on the MLS.  He was told he had to wait until the weekend Grand Opening to view it.  It was standing room only when he entered the home.  After seeing the ‘competition’ he wrote an offer for $25,000 over asking.  This set a new record high in Lake Forest Shores and completely covered the seller’s marketing fee and then some!

If you are a have been to one of my Grand Opening Open Houses, I am sure you observed the over-the-top measures that my team and I took to serve our sellers and put more money in their pockets.  We do the same hard work to help locate and negotiate the best situation for our buyers as well.  If you don’t have a signed contract with an agent, we would be delighted to help you find your dream home in record time.

Do you know anyone who might be looking to sell?
I have a young couple named Jonathan and Kelly who have asked me to find them a 2-bedroom condo in Lake Forest.  I am not new to this.  In fact, I teach agents who work in other cities how to sell homes using this same award-winning method that took me 15 years of testing to develop.  LakeShoresKitchenIt is all about helping sellers do the small things that make a big difference so that crowds converge on their home within a 4-hour period creating a feeding frenzy and a quick sale.  My past sellers love the fact that they don’t have to deal with buyers coming in and out of their home for months and that their home sells for top dollar in record time.

I have one opening to help a seller in September and one in October.  If you are a buyer, I have two openings available at this time. I look forward to hearing from you. 

Lake Forest Condo with Sun & Sail Club – Open Saturday from 12-4pm


Grand Opening Open House this Saturday July 23rd – Noon – 4pm

ACROSS FROM THE LAKE!  Wonderful townhome… with 2-bedrooms, 2- bathrooms, 1-car epoxied DIRECT ACCESS garage w/ lots of storage …is the best of both worlds – positioned between the lake and the woods.

KitchenGranite kitchen has shaker-style cabinets, stainless steel sink with pull-out faucet and Bosch dishwasher.  Expansive master bedroom has room for home office or large retreat. Fenced patio-yard has direct access to garage. Only ¼ of the units here have this feature.

Steps from walking trails that meander through fragrant eucalyptus trees up through Serrano Creek Park & its recreational area & horse stables. Your family & pets will love what nature offers you surrounding this home.

Across the street is the fabulous Sun & Sail Club with its lovely lake and amenities. Enjoy 4 pools, spa, his/hers saunas, tennis, volleyball, state of the art fitness center, youth center, snack bar, fishing, Cheers-style bar (for gathering with your friends to watch ‘the game’), a monthly calendar of events & more. You can even launch your own kayak for a sunset cruise.

Highly acclaimed Rancho Canada Elementary. is just up the street. A short stroll to shopping & eateries. Hardship sale so priced $55,000-$70,000 less than last sale to blow out this weekend.

livingroomI know you are used to me presenting upgraded, turnkey properties. This one is different.  The home is in ‘working condition’, but it requires some upgrades. The seller is in hurry to sell and move out of state. She has already packed up most of her home and put her belongings in the garage. She just needs a buyer who would like a deal!

This Saturday, July 23rd, please join me at this cosmetic fixer on 24564 Copper Cliff in Lake Forest. The home needs $10-20K in upgrades and it will look pretty much like the one I just sold across the street for $420,000. You can probably pick up this home for about $365K or so.  If you aren’t in the market, why don’t you pass this on to someone who would love a ‘ticket’ into resort-style living at the Sun and Sail Club?  Hope to see you there.

Birch Grove Open House Results

What happened at your last Grand Opening Open House? Well, I’m glad you asked. In September we held our Grand Opening at Birch Grove in Terra Vista, another Taco Edition. If you have followed our recent sales you could probably predict the results – sold in 4 hours for thousands over recent comps. The open house was seen by almost 300 guests and 17 offers were received.

In case you missed the open house here is a video that we had a professional movie company shoot at the event.

The flash mob was planned although many people from the crowd joined in spontaneously. The amount of people who came to the open house was typical (you would know that if I sold your house) and a result of the outside-of-the-box marketing we do on each and every listing. We are going to be using this video as part of the Yesin7days training we will be teaching to other agents beginning next year.

Who do you know that’s getting ready to buy or sell? Would you like to be their hero and save them from waiting on the same old traditional agent marketing? Would they love to have their home sold quickly for more than the asking price? Send them this blog post and tell them to call Jenean right away. It’s always nice to share good things with friends. Here’s Jenean’s number (949) 583-1331.

Feel free to share this with anyone you know who may be looking to buy or sell a home anytime soon.
