America’s Top Housing Market!

CNBC published a survey taken from Coldwell Banker Real Estate of nearly 2,000 markets and ranked Malibu, California as the priciest market. Malibu is one of the nation’s most beautiful housing markets and the most expensive. The report identified 20 markets where a four-bedroom, two-bath house costs more than $1 million and eight markets where a similar home lists for less than $100,000. Thirteen of the country’s 25 priciest markets are in California. International moguls and movie stars alike have long considered Malibu a getaway, but that may be changing. “With its laid-back yet star-studded lifestyle, Malibu is undergoing a transformation from a seasonal destination to a year-round locale,” Madison Hildebrand said in a release. Hildebrand is an agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Malibu and one of the stars of Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing.”

Santa Monica Glow

This past Saturday was Santa Monica Glow event. Authorities estimated 150,000 people attended the event. Our marketing coordinator Dee attended and had a blast exploring the 15 art installations up and down the beach, boardwalk and pier. Her favorite instillation was “The Space Between Us”. It was defiantly a fun family event where you could safely ride your bike to the beach with roads blocked off and then you could wear your bike lights along with colorful glow sticks. We hope this event returns again next year, the last year this event was held was three years ago. If you attended the event comment below which instillation was your favorite!

Here are some photos from Dee’s Glow adventure.
