1058 E. Claremont Street, Pasadena // 1058Claremont.com

Here’s a cozy little home in Pasadena’s Bungalow Heaven neighborhood that packs a fair bit of charm into less than 900 square feet of living space.

Built in 1922, the home sits on a compact 2,993-square-foot lot. The front of the home has a garden and walkway leading to the circular front porch. Inside are two bedrooms and one-and-three-quarters bathrooms, along with an airy living room and dining area illuminated by wide windows and French doors.

Hardwood floors run throughout the home, and other features include built-in shelving and a gas fireplace in the living room. The recently updated tile-floored kitchen includes new appliances and a farmhouse sink.

Double doors in the bedroom lead out to a small back deck and wraparound patio space with an added storage shed. There’s also a small studio space behind the house that could be used as a particularly snug home office.

Asking price is $565,000.

Modern Palm Springs Gem by Albert Frey Featured in CurbedLA

1164 N. Calle Rolph - Curbed

1164 N. Calle Rolph - Main

1164 N. Calle Rolph, Palm Springs // Open Saturday, February 24th 1-3pm

1164CalleRolph.com

Part of a tract of World War II-era homes built as worker housing

 

Modernism Week events are ongoing in Palm Springs and plenty of pedigreed homes are up for grabs in the desert city. Case in point: this cozy post and beam by influential modern architect Albert Frey.

The simple residence was constructed in 1946 as part of a tract of homes commissioned as worker housing and designed by Frey at the tail end of World War II. The houses all feature identical floor plans, but different positions on each lot and unique paint jobs so as not to appear too uniform.

This house has plenty of modern style, with wide windows, tiled bathrooms, and plenty of indoor-outdoor access. The 1,150-square-foot home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, along with an airy kitchen with a vintage stove and refrigerator.

The house sits on a 10,000-square-foot lot, with a large driveway, attached garage, grassy backyard, and  spa/swimming pool. There’s even an outdoor shower—partially enclosed for privacy.

Asking price is $749,000. Worth noting: The home’s historic credentials qualify its owner for some tax breaks under California’s Mills Act.

Take a 3D Tour of Pasadena’s Tournament House

Tournament House Pasadena

About the Tournament House

 

This Italian Renaissance-style mansion was built in 1906 for the Stimson family in Pasadena’s “Millionaire’s Row”. The house was designed and built by architect G. Lawrence Stimson and his father, George W. Stimson. After most of the Stimson children left the nest, the house became too big for the Stimsons and they sold the house to William Wrigley Jr. in 1914.


The mansion was presented to the City of Pasadena in 1958 by the Wrigley family. They gave their home with the understanding that it would become the permanent headquarters for the Tournament of Roses®. That is why is is known today as the Tournament House.


The Tournament of Roses Association produces the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl game each New Year in Pasadena. The Rose Parade was conceived by the Valley Hunt Club in 1890. It served as a mid-winter festival where they would invite their neighbors who moved from the East Coast. Five years later, after the Rose Parade grew too large for the Valley Hunt Club, the Tournament of Roses Association was formed. Today, 935 Volunteers make up the Tournament of Roses, they are affectionately referred to as “White Suiters” because of the distinctive white uniform every volunteer wears.

Podley Properties Joins Fellow LeadingRE Companies in Las Vegas

LeadingRE® Annual Conference - Main

2018 LeadingRE® Annual Conference

.

January 31st-February 2nd, 2018

.

Rob Weise, Director of Relocation Services, and Meredith McKenzie, Podley Realtor®, joined Realtors from across the globe at this year’s LeadingRE® Annual Conference. Along with valuable sessions providing updated information for 2018, the conference was a fabulous venue for the relocation directors to connect in person.

.

LeadingRE® Annual Conference - Cocktails

Northern and Southern California Relocation Directors and Staff got together for a Cocktail Hour

LeadingRE® Annual Conference - Arizona

Rob Weise with Michelle O’Connell of Arizona Best Real Estate headquartered in Scottsdale

.

It was also a great venue for agents to network and attend sessions specifically tailored to sales associates. Meredith attended many of those sessions, taking away the following valuable information:

 

  • As members, Podley Properties agents have access to member organizations in all 50 states and in 70 countries. This makes it the largest luxury relocation referral organization in the world.
    .
  • 56% of all referrals actually close, making LeadingRE the most productive referral network of all. When you send out a qualified referral through the LeadingRE network, you have a 50/50 chance of receiving a referral check. That’s better odds than Las Vegas!
    .
  • LeadingRE operates one of the largest online real estate training “classrooms” in the business world. They are ranked in the Top 3 of Best Online Training Sites in America by Training Magazine.

Podley Properties Welcomes Marianna Valdivia

Marianna Valdivia

Having grown up in Glendora and graduating from Glendora High School, Marianna Valdivia is very familiar with Glendora and the surrounding areas. She has always had an interest in real estate, and for the last 10 years she has worked in escrow. This experience in escrow helps Marianna to have a deeper understanding of the buying and selling process than most agents.

She loves to help people, and takes great pride and pleasure in helping clients in selling their current home or finding and buying their dream home. Marianna knows how stressful the home buying process can be. She makes the extra effort to let her clients know that they can trust her, and to provide the easiest experience as possible every step of the way.

Marianna is married with three children; two boys, five and three, and a stepdaughter who is sixteen.
