Burglar Awareness 2015



Two hundred and thirty-eight years ago, this July 4th, a new nation was conceived, different from all others – a nation that could and would capture the imagination of the world for centuries to come…a nation that captured a dream.

As REALTORS®, we have dedicated our professional lives to helping those around us help achieve one part of the dream, the right to own property. But today, helping our fellow Americans achieve that dream is not easy.

Facing a less than robust economy, lending restrictions and growing concerns in regards to both regulatory and legislative reform, our work is challenging. It requires persistent, ongoing effort to protect the right of property ownership, and to ensure access to achieve property ownership. But I believe with all my heart, that it is our American duty to do so.

As REALTORS®, we serve our communities and residents in a profound way. I hope all of us would feel a sense of pride in our work, and feel a sense of duty in promoting and protecting that which our forefathers 238 years ago envisioned as one of the key elements of this New Nation. In doing so, we will be able to help generations of future Americans realize an important part of that “American” dream.


Be aware of what is going on in your neighborhood. Phone Deputy Sheriff at (626) 330-3322 if you are aware of a disturbance!

3 Generations face USA’s retirement crisis

The retirement crisis in America is not contained to any one generation. Across the country, people of all ages are struggling with stagnant wages, rising living expenses, and an overall sluggish economy. Some are closer to their golden years than others, but one thing is clear: There are three unique generations with very different retirements ahead of them.


Many workers are simply trying to recover from the financial meltdown that took place more than five years ago. According to the 15th Annual Transamerica Retirement survey, one of the largest and longest-running national surveys of its kind, 35% of workers believe the Great Recession has not yet ended. That figure rises to 40% among Baby Boomers. Meanwhile, 65% of workers believe the recession has ended, but they have mixed views about the strength of the recovery. Only 14% say they have fully recovered financially from the historic downturn.
