This historic and iconic home was originally home to and built by Clifford Reid, the developer of the Hollywood Riviera, a lovely neighborhood located in South Torrance. His personal residence for 40+ years and filled with treasures from around the world each brought in to perfectly complement the Spanish Colonial Architecture. The home is situated on an over 22,000 square foot lot (which equates to approximately 3 regular lots in the Hollywood Riviera neighbhorhood.) Its grandeur is never dull even when you drive by it several times a day. It was recently restored by its current owner – who has had it just over 2 years now. Its beauty is still dramatic and iconic to all who live in the area. A new owner is currently being sought as the property was just listed for $14,995,000. Anyone who lives here would have to be extremely proud to pull up to the drive of this gorgeous facade. You can walk to the Riviera Village and beach from this location and enjoy sunsets from some of the rooms. The home itself is over 6700 sq ft. with 6 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. There are two powder rooms off the gorgeous entry way alone…one for him and one for her. There is a discreet ‘call button’ located on the dining room floor under the head of the table’s foot, so you can call for more cocktails at dinner! The property is currently being brokered by Rodeo Realty, Beverly Hills / Brandon Assanti. 124 Via Monte D’Oro, Redondo Beach, CA 90277

It is a wonder to me in today’s savvy real estate market where visual images are so important as a first impression that someone would use these photos to market their home that is listed for $1 million dollars!! What the heck? How could this bathroom shot make a buyer want to buy this house? It looks like there is not enough storage space since there is an overflow of bath products on the counter, an extra portable storage bin to the side of the cabinet and some random rod (maybe a towel bar that was never installed?) lying against the bath cabinet.
This is the bedroom photo – what the ? Seriously? The dirty clothes hamper is overflowing and shouldn’t even be in this photo to start with. The dresser is covered with more things that should be stored. Again, this photo tells a story that this house has no storage and even the current owner doesn’t know what to do with all the stuff. Clearly this person never read the latest Marie Kondo book having to do with clearing clutter from your life.
Here is the kitchen photo – obviously the real estate agent did not hire a professional photographer….more overwhelming clutter abounds. It’s such an easy and inexpensive thing to do before you prepare your home for sale….clear the clutter folks!
The backyard – ugh – it’s probably a very nice space, but who can tell from these photos. There is a $1 million dollar price tag attached to this home and these are the photos – I think they will be hard pressed to get that price with these photos.
Someone could have easily removed the black covers from the outdoor grill and removed all the excess planters and waited for some sun! This home is in sunny, Southern California believe it or not.
These guys need help. If you want to sell your house and want a professional real estate agent to advise you on some very easy and inexpensive ways to get top dollar for your home, call Kelly & Laura today. We come ready to work with many years of staging experience under our belts and will personally help you prepare your home for sale. We would never allow photos like this to be a part of your sale. We hire a professional photographer to present your home it its best light.
This was not what I was going to write about tonight, but when I opened the MLS to see what new inventory might have come on the market today, I saw this and couldn’t help myself. Yikes!
Laura and I have so much to be thankful for over the last 18+ years we have been selling real estate here in the South Bay! We love all our clients and the referrals they send us. We never take your referrals for granted and always look forward to providing concierge level service to those people you entrust with our names! We have connected past referrals in all sorts of areas – not just here in the South Bay. This past year in fact, we had referral business in Ojai, San Clemente, Laguna Hills and Northern California! We have a large networking sphere, so we can accommodate most of your real estate needs in state or out of state!!
We hope you consider Laura and I for all your real estate needs in 2019! Many of you already know to call us if you need any sort of home fix up help – we are happy to share our vast network of resources such as painters, electricians, handymen, landscapers, stagers, plumbers, etc. Just give us a call or a text! We even share recipes!!
With all this talk of gratefulness – I need to share how happy we were to receive this lovely bouquet and wine today from a grateful client! That really makes our day! Thank you to our client who will be happy in their new home!!
Sincerely, Kelly & Laura
