“Simply The Best”
Susan and Alli have more than earned the description above. Both our recent buying and selling experiences with their knowledge and guidance could not have been better!
This is the third time that we have utilized Susan’s outstanding services, and we think that this time, records were set, expectations were exceeded and “simply the best” does not even begin to describe our extreme satisfaction!
From staging our property so that it would sell quickly (3 days!), to finalizing all contingencies and documents (in 9 days!), to recommending a fantastic agent in the Seattle area, we could not have wished for anything more.
Nobody can take all the stress out of selling a house, but their experience and expertise helped us get through it with the least amount of worry or anxiety. Their proactive approach anticipated potential issues before they arose and prevented any unexpected problems.
If you are not using this team, you are truly missing out, and we enthusiastically recommend their 5-star service to everyone!

Susan Jensen and Alli Baldocchi of RE/MAX Estate Properties in Hermosa Beach host a client appreciation event at the Maison Luxe. There was wine, snacks, friends and good conversation.
The recent housing downturn discouraged millions of people from entering the home buying market. They were more confident in renting than buying. However, as the home market stabilizes more renters are now considering becoming buyers. As many as 5.2 million renters plan to buy their first homes this year, with many more renters considering following these individuals’ leads soon. This uptick in homeownership hopefulness is up 25 percent from just a year ago.
As eager as many people are to buy their first homes this year, they still may face some obstacles. People must still qualify for a mortgage, something that may be difficult if they have low credit scores, low incomes, not enough money for a down payment, or other financial hurdles. Likewise, they must find housing that fits in their budgets. With the economy rebounding, home prices continue to increase. People must time their house hunting accordingly so that the demand for housing matches the budgets that they have set aside for their purchases.
Further, studies show that this 25 percent in homeowership confidence occurs in major metro areas across the country. Some of the cities in which people stated their hope to buy a home include San Jose, California, Miami, San Francisco, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Diego, Washington, D.C., Denver, Phoenix, and Seattle. In these cities, rental prices are soaring, making the idea of buying a house attractive to people who have been renting all the years, but now discover that they could save money by purchasing a home.
