TONY’S BLOG
“Inventory increased this past period and the quantity of sold homes took a bit of an uncharacteristic dive (77 sold in this period compared to 89 in the same period last year). News of the continued economic problems in Europe has once again created quite a bit of uncertainty amongst consumers however the Fed continues to reassure us that interest rates are going nowhere quick. All this is great news for those not ready to partake in leveraging their available resources into real estate assets however the competition in the marketplace has been dramatic with various type of buyers. Fact: the number of all cash buyers in Manhattan Beach has increased 8% this year to 36%. A staggering statistic when you consider the average home price is over $1.7M! Redondo Beach increased 20% since last year ($696k average selling price) to 66% total all cash transactions. The net result higher home valuations and Palos Verdes and Manhattan Beach is leading the way. God Bless America and Happy 4th of July!”

125 34TH STREET, MANHATTAN BEACH (AKA 3405 MANHATTAN AVENUE)
Here the surf is usually 1-2 feet larger and it’s less crowded. North Manhattan just has these small details that, well, make it North Manhattan. North End Cafe, Pancho’s, Sloopy’s, and much more. This home has the presence of a mansion with its approximately 4,300 square feet located west of Manhattan Avenue. The rich facade houses 5 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. The Pacific Ocean white water views are huge and panoramic. The three ocean view decks and a walk street patio are sure to impress. Imagine taking in the white water views with dinner grilling on the built in BBQ. And then there are the amenities: master suite with walk-in closet, spa tub, CAT 5 wiring throughout, 9x water purification system. Relax and enjoy your evenings in the luxurious comfort of your top level open living room.

CLASSIC WITH A MODERN TWIST
2804 HERMOSA AVENUE, HERMOSA BEACH
One of the only premier corner lot properties left that hasn’t already sold or isn’t otherwise ever available. In 2002, Schaar developed the perfect beach home - the Modern Craftsman. It’s effortless for you to survey the panoramic ocean view and North Hermosa Beach sand. Unassuming at first yet so attractive inside and out, its floor plan accentuates the master suite and living areas with ocean views. 4 bedrooms plus the sky deck and salon which could be 5 if you want. One might imagine using that salon as a bedroom, because it’s the ultimate indoor/outdoor bedroom. Top floor living room and view balcony with a family room/media room on the lower level. Lots of amenities throughout from the wide plank walnut floors, Carrera marble, Viking appliances, master spa tub, walk-in closets and more. Contemporary artwork by Marc Licari throughout the home spotlighted with a 5’6” Al Merrick/Kelly Slater “Wizard Sleeve” to spark one’s imagination...

By maureen megowan / re/max paloS VerdeS execS the idea of a fourth city on the palos Verdes peninsula was first advanced in 1962 as an answer to controlling the unbridled development that was occurring in the unincorporated areas on the peninsula, which remained under the control of los angeles county. unfortunately, these early efforts were never able to get off the ground. the los angeles county Board of Supervisors continued to routinely grant zone changes to developers. in desperation, more than 40 homeowners groups joined together in 1965 to form the peninsula advisory council (pac) in the hopes that this collaboration would add weight to their arguments against the proposed zone changes. in early 1965, the city of palos Verdes estates also attempted to annex a portion of present day rancho palos Verdes totaling 2.92 square miles bordered by high ridge road to the east and the pacific ocean, including the marineland park, in an attempt to broaden its tax base. this effort failed, however. the pac continued to protest against the multitude of zone changes being approved by the county Board

of Supervisors. according to pac’s records, 43 times they protested to the county, and 43 times they failed. then, in 1969, came the new county master plan for the peninsula that provided for a population density far beyond what the local residents wanted. this master plan allowed for high density development to occur along the undeveloped portion of the coast line. in response, a peninsula-wide organization was formed that same year called Save our coastline (Soc). unlike previous efforts, Soc was able to combine political and financial power with experienced local governments focused on achieving a common goal. however, after several unsuccessful fights against the county’s master plan for the peninsula, it became evident that the only way to preserve the environment and to gain control over local zoning issues was through incorporation of a fourth city. the efforts to gain approval for a new city were arduous. when more than 50% of the landowners in the city protested the formation of a new city, Soc pursued and

won a lawsuit that a majority vote of the voters in the city should be the only approval necessary. the election to incorporate rancho palos Verdes was finally held on august 28, 1973. an overwhelming majority of 5 to 1 voted in favor of incorporation. the first city hall offices were located in the former Soc offices in the golden cove center at the corner of hawthorne Boulevard and palos Verdes drive west. one of the first actions taken by the new city council was to declare a building moratorium and to begin work on the preparing the city’s general plan. today, the city of rancho palos Verdes remains committed to the vision of its founders to protect the rural nature of the city.

OUR HOME, SOUtH BAy.
when we launched South Bay digs in october of 2010, our mission was to celebrate what we feel is the strongest link in the “community chain,” – our homes. our homes are the roots in the community tree, bringing neighbors, friends and family together to live, work and play. nothing evokes the feeling of community like summer. as a kid, i used to count down the days to summer with great anticipation – it was always a special time of year. Some things never change.

“I owe my success to having listened respectfully to the very best advice, and then going away and doing the exact opposite.”
- G. K. Chesterton (1874 - 1936)

this issue is our Special Summer edition, and it’s packed with the absolute best homes available for sale in the South Bay…104 pages worth! in the spirit of Summer, we take a historic looK BacK at the palos Verdes Surfing club. Started by several local surfers in 1935, palos Verdes Surfing club regularly met and surfed at the cove, where they used an access road that took them down to the beach. read all about it “Surfing into history” starting on page 44. looking for what’s hot in the South Bay this summer? check out our Summer findS starting on page 30 where we’ve spotlighted some of the things locals love best about enjoying our daily “staycations” over the summer months. on the coVer this issue is a luxurious Seaside Villa offered by terranea real estate at the world class terranea resort on the coast in palos Verdes. priced from $1.3 to $2.7 million, the Seaside Villas & casitas are a one-of-a-kind opportunity to own property in one of the absolute best locations in the world.

written By deniSe Kano

every tuesday, the two remaining members of the palos Verdes Surfing club meet at a local restaurant in redondo Beach for lunch, along with various family members, guests, and all-around general admirers. fenton Scholes, and rich “moe” meine, continue meeting to recall surfing’s “glory days” when surfing was truly a lifestyle and passion. how else to explain lugging a 10-foot, 50-plus pound surfboard up and down the palos Verdes hills?

palos Verdes club members regularly met and surfed at Bluff cove, usually just referred to as “the cove”, where they used an access road which took them almost completely down to the beach. this was advantageous as the boards were much heavier and longer at that time. “the boards were almost completely alien to boards of today,” said matt warshaw, author of the history of Surfing. “Solid balsa/redwood, or hollow with half-inch plywood shell, covered in varnish -- they weighed about 50 pounds, give or take. all you could do was stand, angle a bit, and charge off toward shore. no turns. no tube riding.” the club enjoyed entering surfing contests from malibu and hermosa Beach, to the long Beach pier and San onofre, where they would compete against other Southern california clubs in both surfing and paddle boarding. “we would surf the cove all day and have a bonfire at night,” Scholes recalled, who eventually made his own board carrier to help him with the long haul up and down the hill.

early club days
in the 1930s, there were reportedly only a few hundred surfers in the country, and in 1935, several local surfers got together and started the palos Verdes Surfing club, with John “doc” Ball and adie Bayer being instrumental in the club’s formation. doc, a hermosa Beach dentist with offices on figueroa, offered an empty side office as a regular meeting place. these were not laid-back affairs; smoking was forbidden during meetings and members reportedly swore to “at all times strive to conduct myself as a club member and a gentleman.” members always wore respectful clothing to meetings, typically consisting of green club jackets and silver pVSc bracelets – no tee shirts and flip flops (yet) for this crowd. and how did one gain entry into the club? “you had to be a good surfer,” said Scholes. “we would see surfers at the cove and think, ‘hey, let’s ask him to come in.” there was an initiation process, with some presumably light-hearted hazing, but both Scholes and meine elect to keep the details under wraps to this day.

changes on the horizon
with the advent of world war ii, most members entered the service and the access road was closed down, reportedly for security reasons. it was never reopened. the club was somewhat limited in the 1950s, and then disappeared altogether, although some members still surfed together informally during the 1960s and 1970s.

6.29.2012 | SouthBaydigS.com 45

“doc Ball eventually moved away from the area, and with no space for a clubhouse, there were no longer any formal meetings. doc continued to surf well into his eighties, and even skateboarded while in his nineties. he died on december 5, 2001.” approximately ten years ago, about six to ten members started meeting again at a local restaurant in riviera Village, where they could trade stories and relive memories. Scholes shared that he last surfed approximately eight year ago, at the age of 85. up until that point, he enjoyed surfing San onofre, Santa monica, and various other locations up and down the coast.

Surfing is now a booming business, with some professional surfers making one million dollars or more. lighter, shorter boards allow surfers to attempt more maneuvers and aerobatics. Surfing has become so popular that there are now countless surfing clubs, associations, and organizations throughout the world. Still, every tuesday, you can find two gentlemen surfers at a local redondo eatery, recalling a simpler time when surfing was more of a brotherhood – full of camaraderie and less competition. “pVSc was sort of the standard-bearer for that pre-youth-culture ‘gentleman’s’ form of surfing,” said warshaw. “outmoded completely in the

surf photography pioneers
doc Ball is remembered for his passion in the area of surf photography, and his innovative techniques with handling a camera in the water. his work has been featured in many magazines, and he published a book of photography, california Surfriders. he also encouraged fellow club member leroy grannis to pursue his own hobby of shooting surf photos. grannis was under doctor’s orders to find a relaxing hobby to escape from the stress of his job at the phone company, and surf photography apparently fit the bill for him. grannis ultimately went on to become surfing’s premiere photographer during its golden age in the 1960s, and co-founder of Surfing magazine. grannis died at the age of 93 on february 3, 2011. “leroy grannis was one of the first professional photographers, although the money was pitiful,” said warshaw. “these guys were just stoked amateurs with enough patience, and in some cases, ingenuity, to keep out of the water now and then to get a few shots.”

years after the war, when the focus shifted to malibu, and surfing took on a kind of Beat generation quality.” the next time you walk along the hermosa Beach pier, take a good, long look at the Surfer’s walk of fame. there you will see numerous contributors to the sport of surfing, their names etched into immortality. perhaps it’s time to make room for two more names.

WRITTEN BY: DEANNA WHIPP

In the late 1940s, a housing shortage forced developers to search the open countryside for vacant land. Areas east of the beach in Manhattan, Redondo and parts of South and west torrance were ripe for these new developments and many of those original homes still stand. today, as new homebuyers settle into South Bay living, those original tract homes offer a much more affordable option for those seeking to set down roots in the beach community and the excellent public school systems, however most buyers moving into these older homes know there is work to be done to make them functional for today’s modern family.

when terry and Sharon bought their home twelve years ago, they knew what they were getting into: a dated 1960’s tract home that was an original build that needed a vision. its footprint was typical to the style of those affordable homes that went up in the original tract; with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a living room, kitchen and dining area fulfilling the needs of the family. the bedrooms were small, the bathrooms basic and the large front and backyards offered flat, wide, open grassy areas for play & entertainment. the exterior was a stucco-wood combination finished with a soft pastel paint color offset by white scalloped wood trim accents. when these homes were built, there were no trees, and all the tract houses looked the same, but no one seemed to mind. the suburbs symbolized everything good that the modern world had to offer. on the whole, the home conformed nicely to the 1960’s suburban tract that met the intent of the original developers and homeowners. in 1996, terry and Sharon purchased the home at a value and planned to make changes to bring it up to date.

to take shape.” what came from that first meeting was a design based on a rock and a memory. while visiting the home, a small, non-descript family photo hanging on the wall in narrow hallway between the tiny bedrooms called out to nuné. it depicted Sharon’s mother-in-law holding their second child. it was taken at the family’s favorite vacation home in hawaii and it became very apparent that family history and culture was important to terry and Sharon. it hit the architect that what he needed to give this family was a hawaiian style home that would embrace their roots yet function for them now and into the future. having the habit of constantly researching new and different building materials, nuné instinctively knew of a certain hawaiian lava rock that would literally make the perfect cornerstone of the newly revamped home. he set to work on a design. the end result expanded the single level, 1,600 sf home into a 2,600 sf house that reached deep into the lot, utilizing the land to expand the indoor living space

functional layout. the large kitchen had somehow adopted the washer/dryer space, a home office area and the storage areas for dry goods as well as soccer balls and cleats. nunè believes in combining efficiencies, taking advantage of every space as it’s needed to offer multiple purposes so that each room functions as needed throughout the day. the new design combined a long, family desk area alongside the utility and laundry area as well as an organized mudroom space, freeing up the kitchen to adapt to a much more contemporary work flow. a good portion of the rear of the house was removed to open up the master bedroom, with its existing bathroom that featured a single sink, a commode and a shower stall. the design allowed for the expansion of the bathroom into a contemporary master bath with his & hers vanities, a private water closet, and a full bath with walk-in shower. the real bonus? the large walk-in closet that Sharon says was the answer to the hodge-podge of mis-matched furniture that originally

the house now breathes with new light; it even has a new heart. If you listen carefully, you may even hear it whisper,
the couple first set to an updating project after they bought the home, and that initial project made it livable for the young family. as their family grew, so did the increased need for better functionality of the rooms and floor-plan. the dilemma was that the family loved the neighborhood. it met their needs perfectly. moving was not an option. revamping the home to make it work for their lifestyle was the best plan, so the couple embarked on a project that would turn their tired house into a home that was as much a part of the family as the people who lived in it. after interviewing many potential contractors and designers, it was recommended to them by a representative at one Stop windows that the couple contact nuné nitsiotis, president/director of design at Studio Synergy, inc. based in redondo Beach. terry and Sharon instantly connected with nuné, and together they settled on an idea that would ultimately create a home that reached deep into their family roots, yet was contemporary and new. when the architect first met with terry and Sharon to determine the scope of the project, the couple knew they wanted a better home, but they weren’t sure of just what it was they wanted. nuné interviewed the family extensively, learning how they lived in their home; what worked for them and what frustrated them. “my goal is to deliver a product that suits the lifestyle of the client. i look to the story of who they are for the design solution without compromising the outdoor space. a covered lanai became the heart of the home, and the design ensured that the flow of the home always came back to that place of connection. all major living spaces, as well as the master bedroom, focus on the lanai. removing the standard front window off the living room of the original tract home design and opening a wall of windows drew the light from the front of the lot through the home and into the lanai. adding a front porch made of rich, dark mahogany carried the theme of the casual hawaiian home, with their customary wooden front decks. and that lava rock, a manufactured stone called mauKa (“m • ow • ka”), named after the lava flow it came from, an almost undeliverable stone made only in hawaii, proudly adorns the front of the home with a warm, welcoming “aloha”. one of the challenges of the original floor-plan was the tiny bedrooms. terry and Sharon’s two young children shared one room while using the other for toys and homework. the thoughtful design took advantage of the “dead space” of the tight hallway. By opening the home’s living space and moving walls to utilize the hallway space, the two secondary rooms opened up. there was now enough space for larger closets and even built in desk space for the children. each child now could enjoy the privacy and comfort of their own room. another challenge was to unravel the awkward spaces of the home and lay them out into a streamlined dominated their main bedroom. that same small “master” with its convenient spare bath evolved into a true master suite, complete with a shared bathroom environment that works for a modern couple, and a very private and intimate patio area where the parents can retreat for some much deserved quiet time. the rest of the back of the house was converted into the open and welcoming lanai. Studio Synergy also addressed the property’s landscape. the theme of the tropical retreat was blended into the very last details, utilizing native california coastal plants, grasses and flowers while introducing others with a tropical flair; elephant ear, Kentia palms, plumeria, hibiscus and giant Birds of paradise tied it all together. terry, Sharon, and their kids needed a home they could live in really well. one that would fit everything they desired without needing a new home. when asked for the secret to a successful remodel, the couple emphatically believes that the partnership with the design team is key. Between the original architectural design, their contractor, roy morimoto, and their interior designer, tanya padgett of creative designs, the family now has a home that not only suits them, but pays homage to a family heritage and the laid back lifestyle they enjoy as part of South Bay living. the house now breathes with new light; it even has a new heart. if you listen carefully, you may even hear it whisper, mahalo.

Dan P, Attorney at Law--

David was highly recommended by a

family friend. Within weeks he found us a wonderful home, and with some careful negotiation we had an accepted offer below market value. Because it was a short sale, the loan and escrow process was more complicated than a standard sale. David was with us every step of the way working to make sure the sale closed. I cannot emphasize enough how important he was to getting the transaction closed timely. He was available night and day 7 days a week. In my business I deal with real estate problems and can recognize a good agent -- David is a great agent – we will use him again.

FRES H B roThers
writ ten By: Quinn r oBertS
Starting from humble beginnings in manhattan Beach four years ago, fresh Brothers has done nothing but grow since then. case in point, the pizza joint served over half a million orders in 2011. that number will undoubtedly spike come later this year with the company set to open its seventh and eighth stores in Brentwood and Santa monica. “manhattan Beach was certainly the test market and we knew in three weeks that we had something,” partner michael goldberg said. “why we have been so successful in the South Bay is because we are so community oriented. we are more than just a pizza place in the community, we are part of the community.” with a motto of ‘fresh thinking. fresh pizza.’, fresh Brothers has brought a healthy perspective to the pizza industry. customers have a choice of seven different salads on the menu or can even create their own. fresh Brothers also serves chicken wings that are baked, not fried. the company also offers a fresh kids special sauce that is made up of five different vegetables, finely ground up and blended into pizza sauce without kids ever tasting the difference. the sauce has become so popular for fresh Brothers, that it mixed more than 5,000 gallons of the sauce in 2011. fresh Brothers also has a gluten-free menu with gluten free pizzas that use a blend of rice flour, tapioca flour, potato starch, olive oil, garlic and italian seasoning. for customers who are vegan, fresh Brothers also offers a vegan cheese pizza. “we are serving great products,” founder and ceo adam goldberg said. “we have high end products and fresh ingredients for pizza and salad. we are still a quick service restaurant, but the quality is still there.” it is this type of thinking that has not only made fresh Brothers restaurants popular in manhattan Beach, redondo Beach and the rest of Southern california, but with michael greenberg, the president of Sketchers. Seeing fresh Brothers in the South Bay community, greenberg had a productive meeting about six months ago with the goldberg brothers, which led to a partnership between the three. “i feel privileged to be apart of fresh Brothers and i think we share the same values as far as being involved in the community,” greenberg said. “they have a vision for fresh Brothers that i was really attracted to.” with greenberg now on board, fresh Brothers believes the sky is the limit for where the company can go. “we have grown the business well in the past four years,” adam goldberg said. “we want to go to that next level and we believe that is what michael can do for us. we have the brand to take it there.”

one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. that saying has never been more true than in the case of onebooktree and its founder and designer devin week. finding a box of discarded books in 2009, week turned the discovery into a book bench, which created the spark to expand on such an idea. “it started with a book and grew into a gold mine,” week said. “from there, i started researching wood, metal and glass.” week continues to work mostly with reclaimed wood he’s found in los angeles, creating everything from necklaces to dressers to beds. “with the material out there, it is fun to see different woods together and putting everything from plywood and walnut together and see how things stand out and compliment each other,” week said. “that is the fun part about getting all of these reclaimed pieces.” now, three years after starting the company, week and his business partner Bobby lauterjung have a clearer vision for onebooktree. they have decided to stop accepting new clients and will instead focus on the launch of a onebooktree collection. if all goes according to plan, week would like to have it finished by 2013 with 16-20 pieces in the entire line. with nearly 20 sketch books full of thoughts and ideas, the collection will include certain types of home decor and usable products. “i love the start of each product and the design process,” week said. “i love it being so open and finding what it is. it never ends open, but i love the idea of a blank sheet of paper.” week has already envisioned a modular shelf and dresser system, bed frames and headboards. he’s also thought about lifestyle products like speakers, bike baskets and accessories. “each piece is one of a kind,” week said. “it might be the same design and size, but our wood ensemble is all different from one another, along with plastic and metal that go into a tree of materials that l.a. sources.” with most piecing taking three weeks to 1.5 months to complete, week expects bed frames to cost anywhere from $1,000-$1,600, depending on the size and intricacy of the piece. meanwhile, small shelf and dresser systems will cost $100$400, while bigger ones will go for $600-$800. “the most important thing for me is for the pieces to be functional, to really solve a purpose in the home and for it to be local,” week said. “it is like the more you buy into the company, the more you buy into l.a. as a whole and really help us clean l.a.”

And hope that in the next 6 months, in an election year, in this economy, amidst all of the budget cuts and growing deficit that congress and growing deficit that congress will join hands singing. But do you really want to take that chance with your family’s future? Here are facts we know for sure: 1. There could be substantial tax consequences if you close your short sale after December 31st 2. It takes about 4-5 months to complete the short sale process 3. Banks are now offering financial incentives to homeowners who short sale their property 4. Home prices are on a potentially short lived rise due to inventory shortage 5. Loan deficiencies can be released on both a 1st and 2nd mortgage 6. “Second Chance” financing and credit restoration is immediately available after a short sale [specific conditions apply]

SOUTH BAY REAL ESTATE AGENTS SHARE WHAT THEY LOVE MOST ABOUT SUMMER...
Darren Pujalet of Shorewood Realtors

“I love how the South Bay bubble comes alive in the Summer time. Local residents are out walking and riding on The Strand, playing volleyball on the beach, surfing, attending summer concerts and so much more!” — Darren Pujalet, Shorewood Realtors “We love SUP-ing in the summertime in Hermosa Beach!” — Brittny Burford & Lisa Stott of Shorewood Realtors “What I like about celebrating the 4th in the South Bay is sharing with my neighbors the appreciation of the principles our founding fathers put in place so we can live in freedom, comfort, and prosperity.” — David Constable, Beach City Brokers “I love surfing without a wetsuit”. — Paul Kerza, NW Real Estate Brokers “My favorite thing about summer is 4th of July weekend at the beach...I love seeing everyone in the spirit of the holiday, all wearing Red, White, and Blue.” — Rachel Ezra, Shorewood Realtors “My favorite thing about summer in the South Bay... It’s as great as winter in the South Bay.” — Steve Santos, Shorewood Realtors “I love spending quality time with my 3 little angels!” — Bob Salim, Classic Beach Properties “I love that everyone is out and about with smiles on their faces.” — Gayle Probst, Coldwell Banker Previews “I love witnessing people taking a moment out their busy summer to pause and reflect at the Memorial Bench in Hermosa Beach that is dedicated to Gregory Jarvis.” — Jon Capellaro, Coldwell Banker Previews

“My favorite thing about summer is enjoying sunsets and picnic dinners on the beach.” — Candice Carpenter, Re/MAX Beach Cities Realty “What I love about summer?... Late afternoons at the beach and swimming with my grandson, Mason.” — Rob Freedman, Re/MAX Beach Cities Realty “My favorite thing about summer in the South Bay is that our kids can truly enjoy a full day of the wonderful things our local area has to offer. Lots of fun in the sun activities!” — Cindy Shearin, NW Real Estate “To me, it’s the long strolls on The Strand; admiring the beauty of the beach and the ocean, as well as the wide array of architecture and splendor of Strand Real Estate.” — Ed Kaminsky, Shorewood Realtors “Next to selling homes, my favorite thing about summer in the South Bay is laying on hot beach sand and then going for a surf sans wetsuit.” — Shawn Dugan, Independent Broker “LONG SUNNY DAYS!... Even after a long day of work there’s still enough daylight for a Strand bike ride and a few games of volleyball!” — Alex and Tyler Wolf, Wolf and Wolf Team, Shorewood Realtors “What I love about summer in the South Bay are the BBQ’s and pool parties.” — Raju Chhabria, Shorewood Realtors “My favorite thing about summer is the family 4th of July celebration on the lawn at Malaga Cove School. The picnic, apple pie contest, and children’s bicycle parade is about as All American as it can get.” — Tricia Rappaport, Re/MAX P.V.

TOTAL TRANSPARENC Y
With the rates that we offer, there is nothing to hide. We provide our clients honest answers, sound advice and exclusive programs.

Recent Client Testimonial: Thank you Regan for the most expedient, accurate, and pleasant mortgage refinance I have ever experienced. I have been getting home loans and refi’s for over 40 years, and many were nightmares. In the beginning I was skeptical based on my past experience with other local lenders, that is why I was so amazed when we closed in just 10 days with no costs. I attribute your timeliness to your intelligence, knowledge, skill, and rapport you have with your immediate financial partners and associates. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you taking the time to call me, e-mail me, answer my calls and return my calls regardless of what time it was or where you were at. I feel very fortunate to have found you and you can count on me for all my future home loans. Ron - Rancho Palos Verdes

Welcome to Watermark:
Transparency and solutions are the foundation of my success, and I promise both to each and every client. While other lenders focus on feel good services, I focus on the financing. In an industry that hasn’t had a great reputation over the past few years, I take pride in knowing that I’ve gained the trust and respect of my clients. In today’s market the most important thing when obtaining a home loan is the mortgage professional you work with and the resources that they have at their disposal. Whether you have a simple conventional purchase, or a complex Jumbo transaction, feel free to call me at anytime and find out why Watermark is right for you.

Regan Hagestad - Managing Director of Mortgage Banking
