We're Back with a Wealth of Knowledge

by Mother & Son Team

We’re back!  One of the reasons we’re able to help as many families as we do is because we take our careers seriously…  Ask your doctor, or ask any licensed professional...  In order to keep their license, there must be some sort of continuing education.  Can you imagine if your doctor never learned what the latest advances in medicine were?  Or what if your doctor didn’t know what medications have recently come into existence that can benefit your life and health.  You probably wouldn’t want to go to that doctor right? 

That’s why we know that in order to serve our clientele best we need to invest in continuing education.  We just got back from one of the largest real estate summits of the year.  Tom Ferry runs one of Americas leading real estate companies and we brought home a wealth of knowledge from the 3 days of training we had.  The beauty of a summit like this is that we can network with other top producing real estate professionals and talk about the things that they are doing to best serve their communities and clients.  If you’ve kept up with us this past year, one of the things we are looking most to do is give back to the community and what better way to give than to learn what others are doing to give back to their communities. 

As always we’re here to serve you and we want to bring an overwhelming amount of value to you.  We care about all the residents in our market are of Downey, Bellflower, Lakewood, South Gate, Pico Rivera, and surrounding areas.  So give us a call so we can connect!

We may be getting our own show on TLC or HGTV!

Here's a clip of our interview with Naomi Channel of Curve Media based out of London.  They are the same company that produced property brothers on HGTV and many other shows on TLC as well as other cable networks.  There was a call out for a family real estate show and The Mother & Son Real Estate Team seemed to fit the criteria.  

The funny thing is, we never looked for an opportunity like this.  We've always been focused on serving our clients and working really hard in our community, and somehow through the internet presence that we've created in Southern California as the Mother & Son Real Estate Team she found us…   Toward the end of the clip you can hear Naomi say that she's going to pitch us out to TLC and HGTV to see if we can be a part of a show on their network.  

We're really excited for this opportunity, but in the meantime if you could think of anyone we can serve reach out to us.  We're always here for you, your friends and family!

bellflower car show

The Bellflower Noon Lions Club is proud to be hosting the 17th annual Bellflower Car Show. This event continues to be an afternoon and evening of family fun with great food, great entertainment and awesome cars! You can enjoy a walk down Bellflower Blvd. from Flora Vista to Park St. and relive those days when you cruised Bellflower Boulevard. You will see everything from classic cars to custom motorcycles. The Bellflower car show is FREE to the public and great family entertainment.

The awards presentation will be held at 6:00pm on the stage located at the corner of Bellflower Blvd. and Flower St.

If you have a car and are interested in being a part of the Bellflower Car Show, visit this page to register. There were about 250 vehicles last year and plan for more this year, so get your registration in early.

See ya on the boulevard!

The Bellflower Noon Lions Club is a nonprofit organization that was chartered in 1964. When they heard that the City of Bellflower was forced to cancel the annual car show due to budget constraints, they decided to step up and take over. The 2009 car show was the first car show the Noon Lions had ever hosted. With the City of Bellflower helping out with contacts, lists and things that needed to be done, the car show was a great success.

Being real estate experts of Downey, we thought we would also show you why we love this city so much. Summer is here, so that means Downey will be having the free concerts series called Concerts in the Park. Attached is a link that will give you the schedule of free music events in Downey this year.  We encourage you to go to at least one (if not all) of the concerts and you too can experience the hometown feeling that we love. click here for the flyer... 

#1 in our Company - Berkshire Hathaway Home Servives, California Properties, Mulhearn Group

by Southern Californias Top Producing Mother & Son Te

We couldn’t be more honored this last week at our company, quarterly awards breakfast.  We were blessed with the honor of receiving the #1 spot in our company for the first quarter of 2015 in a company that has over 1,500 real estate agents!  We are so thankful for all of our past clients who have put their trust in our ability to help them sell and buy their homes enabling us to achieve this great award in our company!

One of the reasons we believe we have been so successful in the real estate business is because we are a family run business.  Many people that we have served throughout our time in the business have told us that they connect with us, look up to us, and feel comfortable to work with us because of the relationship my mother, Maria and I have.  We’ve always had a strong bond throughout our lives and we believe that it’s because of that great Mother/Son relationship that we’ve had throughout the years that we’ve been able to help many families…

We’re excited to see what the rest of  2015 brings.  We are more focused than ever and we are always trying to stay on top of all the new ways to be most effective to better serve you.  We take pride in paying special attention to detail in everything we do because we want to give our clients the very best.   We know that when we give our clients the best, we are rewarded as the best in the business as we were this quarter…
