Hot Property: 1310 Laveta Terrace Featured in the LA Times!


1310 Laveta Terrace - Hot Property
1310 Laveta Terrace // Los Angeles 90026

 

Shock rock legend Alice Cooper has a duplex for sale in Echo Park at $1.299 million. No, this isn’t an investment property he happens to own — it’s a space he has used as a writer’s retreat when in town creating music for himself and the Hollywood Vampires.


The two-unit house was built in 1927 and maintains its Spanish-style roots with arched windows and passages. The 2,027 square feet of interiors, however, look fresh and new with updated kitchens, bathrooms and light walls. The singer-songwriter-actor completely renovated the duplex when he bought it in 2006 for $700,000.

Pam Franklin Cycles, Raises Money for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society

Pam Franklin - Cycle 1

June 3rd, 2018

Pam Franklin participated in the 27th Annual “America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride – Lake Tahoe,” a charity cycling event for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society (LLS). The awe-inspiring ride was a 100-mile ring around Lake Tahoe, through California and Nevada, with spectacular scenery, clean mountain air, great food and more.

Pam trained several months for this event with an organization called Team in Training, a national fundraising arm of LLS. With her hard work and dedicated efforts, she was able to raise $5,130, nearly twice her stated goal. And, as a group, Team in Training raised over $4,000,000!

 

These donations will help fund treatments that save lives every day. These include immunotherapy, which uses a person’s own immune system to kill cancer. We are extremely proud of Pam for her tireless efforts in support of this life-saving work.

Pam Franklin - Cycle Fun

“Thanks to all the wonderful, generous Podley agents and staff who supported my effort!” – Pam

Robb Buzzini: Community Coach and Realtor®

Robb Buzzini - Coach


Coaching has always been something that Robb Buzzini has gravitated towards. He applies his great coaching skills to his business, coaching and guiding his clients through their real estate transactions.


Following high school, Robb served as an Assistant Coach for his high school in Santa Rosa. He also coached a basketball team for the Boys and Girls Club for ages 15-18.
After moving to Pasadena in 2010, Robb served as Head Coach of the JV baseball team at St. John Bosco School in Bellflower.


This past year Robb has coached 4 youth teams that his children, Avery (8) & Jack (5) play on: 6U Soccer for AYSO Region 13, Kinder Co-Ed, first & second grade girls for Upward Basketball in Pasadena and Tee-Ball for Central Altadena Little League.


“I always look for ways our teams can be better” says Robb. “Whether that was strategy or simply knowing the rules, I wanted everyone on my team to be prepared.”
Robb remembers what his Little League coach told him at 11 years old. That he was an extension of him on the field,  earning him the nickname “Coach.” He was prouder of that than any on the field accomplishment. It is something Robb still applies to his life today.


For Robb, the thrill of helping a child get their first hit, make a basket, or score a goal matches the thrill of helping a first time home buyer or seller achieve their goals.

Agents Donate Time, Books with the PUSD Summer Reading Program

May 23rd, 2018

Every year Podley associates, alongside other area Realtors®, donate their time and effort to the Door of Hope and the PUSD Summer Reading Program. This year we had 10 agents donate their time and efforts for this wonderful program. “It’s very exciting to be part of the summer book for 2nd graders for PUSD,” says Bia Kasten. “I love seeing the real estate community sharing its time and resources for the success of the program.”

 

 

 The program is a great way to encourage Pasadena’s youth to read. It also provides them with the tools (books) to do so. All together, the district ordered 1,500 books this year – enough to buy a book for every 2nd grader this year!

However, the work didn’t end there. The volunteers got together and labelled all of the books for the students. They then hand-delivered the books themselves to each 2nd grade class and to Door of Hope. The day of giving included a celebration, with musical performances by the students, costumes and fun!

 

 

This year’s participating agents:

 

 

Shelley Bowlen, Robb Buzzini, Sherry Carr, Bill Derrick, Diane Hatfield, Bia Kasten, Katie Orth, Andi Palmatier, Victoria Tabakian & Judy Webb-Martin.

Founded in 2014 by Realtor® Jacen Crehan and designer Daniel Coffman, Staged Spaces provides premium home staging and interior design services to the San Gabriel Valley, Inland Empire, LA, OC and beyond. With their team of vibrant designers, Staged Spaces’ goal is to take your space to the next level. Whether you’re preparing to sell your home or in need of a total home transformation, Staged Spaces are the dedicated professionals that will make it happen.

 

The birth of Staged Spaces started with Jacen jumping on an opportunity to stage his own home. “Going through the process turned out to be creatively fulfilling to both Daniel and I,” said Jacen.

 

Their dynamic is a perfect balance of the pair’s passion and expertise in design and business. Daniel’s event design background  proved beneficial in gaining accounts with wholesale furniture companies, while Jacen’s real estate background and previous work in flipping homes for friends and family both set them up for professional success.

Staged Spaces’ services include home staging, interior design, remodel design, furniture sales, and computer modeling among many others.

 

They currently offer more than 30 collections between bedrooms, dining rooms and living spaces. Their décor collections were meticulously put together in order to pull off an elevated look to staging and design. Currently featured are the industrial-style Montreal Living Room set and the La Jolla Dining Set – a collection crafted with solid pine and mahogany wood.

 

Daniel and Jacen don’t just put furniture in a room. Their design showcases the best features of the home and helps create the most stunning marketing photos possible. In addition, they pride themselves on using their hand selected pieces to give a unique yet familiar “home” appeal to the new buyer.
