A Great time for Golf in “The OC”

It is October and it is a great time for golf in Orange County. A little rain to “green things” up. and the courses aren’t as “crazy” as they are in the summer. The last couple courses I have played: Coto de Casa (a litttle warm but a FUN day), Mesa Linda in Costa Mesa. A good little course with some really steep traps. Unfortunately…..I did get more practice than I wanted. But, my Dad would have been proud. He taught me well when it comes to traps!! Wish I had picked his brain more about all the great shots he was a master of. Has that ever happened to you? A great lesson to remind us to listen and take notes when you are around the older generation. They have so much knowledge to offer. Be more opened to new ideas and not be stubborn. Ha Ha, I wonder if I am writing this for myself 🙂 OK….back to golf! Oh yes.and next week playing Ben Browns ( a great 9 hole course set in the hills of Laguna Beach) and then hopefully Newport Beach Country Club.
There are still some great buys on homes on the golf course in Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa, San Clemente, Rancho Margarita, Coto de Casa, Ladera Beach and all through San Diego and Palm Springs and Palm Desert. Interest rates are still amazing and there are deals out there. If I can do anything to help…..let me know! Thanks, Sue 🙂

Day After Super Bowl!!

Well, it is the day after Super Bowl and …..what a good game!! Well, I guess it was if you wanted the Saints to win! I did because they deserved it after ALL these years. However I am a Peyton Manning fan also. Now….it is time for “football withdrawal”(:

Did you get out to Riveria to watch the golf last week…..what didn’t get rained on??? I was sorry I couldn’t get up there but I did get to spend a day at Torrey Pines a couple weeks ago. It was an absolutely perfect day… sunshine, warm and a light breeze off the ocean. WOW! And the course looked awesome!

Don’t forget the Winter Olympics opening ceremony on Friday and I’ll be back with Newport Beach real estate updates soon! Have a great day!!

Historic Homes, Balboa Island!

I thought  you might be interested in this little bit of Balboa Island Trivia.  The Island is comprised of 3 Man Made Islands, Balboa Island, Little Island and Collins Island. In a recent post…..I told you about a home for sale on Collins Island.

Prior to 1906, the Island was just a sand spit. Thanks to the insight of developer William S. Collins, we now have Balboa Island. He began dredging the channel around Snipe Island, depositing sand onto the tidelands……resulting in Balboa Island!

In 1929 the Island boasted 100 residents. Today it claims over 3,000 residents. There are currently 101 Historic Homes on the Island. Each bronze plaque hoors a home that has been on the Island at least 60 years. Stop by our Balboa Island Museum and Historical Society. Close to the Ferry and Pilates Bt The Sea!!  Wed. and Sat. 10am – 2 pm 949 675-3952

 Have you ever been to the Island? If so, please share your positive experiences 🙂

I’ll give you more “B.I. trivia” in aother Blog. I did want to tell you that

A Great home in Newport Beach Bluffs

I usually try to keep you updated on the golf and Beach Properties in Newport Beach Area. Today I’d like to tell you about a great listing in Newport Beach that doesn’t have a view (except for small greenbelt) but it also doesn’t cost millions of dollars. This one is close to a great private Tennis Club and walking distance to the Back Bay and the biking/hiking trails. It is 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths with a GREAT wrap around patio to enjoy our beautiful “year round” weather. It has been upgraded with thermo-pane doors and windows, granite counters in the kitchen, recessed lighting, crown moulding, new carpet and paint. It sits at the end of the cul-de-sac and it light and bright! And….what is best….it is listed at $825,000.
It is a great opportunity to own a home in Newport Beach. Especially for those of you that are dying from the heat in Palm Springs/Desert, Las Vegas, Phoenix etc. Write or call and I’ll take you to look at it!
Have a great evening, Sue

Speaking of exciting finishes…..did you see the men’s finals for Wimbelton??? Oh my gosh….was that amazing or what?? History in the making in many ways. I am a Fedderer fan and was VERY happy to see him back on his game and playing so well!! But what about Roddick? He was amazing and played such GREAT steady tennis. It was so much Fun to watch! congrats to Serina too. Hope you are having a great summer!
