The SoCal Home — More Than Real Estate News

The New Year’s Resolution is…

Around this time of year most begin to make resolutions. I think the idea is to resolve to be better, do better or accomplish something bigger in the NEW year than in the previous year. However, for whatever reason most fall short of keeping a resolution let alone achieving it! I for one have been guilty of it.  #happynewyear #2019

How about you?

There’s a great book that helped me and my team really improve our success on achieving important goals and I want to share it with you – as sort of a Happy New Year After Christmas Gift. Before I share the book details, here is my TWO PART resolution to you and anyone you know considering selling the place they call home!

Part one: The Guarantee!   –  I will guarantee, in writing, the sell of your home for 100% of Asking Price or I’ll Pay the Difference.*

Part two: The Give Back!  –  We are still on a mission to raise $25,000 for Children’s Hospital. We do this by donating to them a portion of our income from homes we sell. As you know Children’s Hospital does awesome work in helping kids fight through and survive nasty life threatening diseases like cancer, Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, leukemia and others. They also lead the way in early diagnosis of Autism and rapid recovery from spinal cord injuries. Most don’t know though that Children’s is a non-profit, so they depend on sponsorships and donations to provide their world class care and keep costs for families of these beautiful kids to a minimum. So when you or anyone you know does business with is, not only do we deliver on our award-winning service, you can rest assured a very worthy cause benefits as well.   #chla

The book I mentioned is The Success Principles (How to get from where you are to where you want to be) by Jack Canfield.  This book should be on your reading list. A couple of chapters I recommend you read:  Take 100% Responsibility for Your Life; Practice Persistence;  Clean up Your Messes and Your Incompletes;  Face What Isn’t Working; and Just Say No!   If you read these chapters only, you’ll feel 10 times better than if you hadn’t — trust me!

IMPACTFUL REAL ESTATE NEWS 

Why I Support Children’s Hospital

I grew up right here in Southern California. Born right nearby at St. Francis Hospital. I remember when I first heard about a young person close to our family suffering from a nasty disease and getting treated for that at Children’s Hospital. It was then that I began to pay closer attention to the work they do at that hospital. Since then, I have learned that it is a collection of hard working health care professionals, most making their home right here in the Greater Los Angeles area, all coming together for a common cause. That cause is to help young people over come unfortunate health issues that life sometimes throws our way. Being SoCal native, I take pride in supporting in any way that I can the good work these people do at Children’s. My team rallys around our annual goal of raising money and donating portions of our income to help Children’s in their quest to heal young people when they need healing. My team and I are committed to providing outstanding results for buyers and sellers referred to us by our past clients. I have discovered that Children’s Hospital shares similar commitments to their patients. And since their services survive on sponsorships and donations we are happy to contribute and proud to support them.

Sincerely,

Steep Learning Curve

When 7-year-old Evabelle was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, her parents found empowerment and support at Children’s Hospital.

By Candace Pearson

Sometimes, the early signs that a child is ill can be so subtle, a family may not realize what’s happening—until later, with hindsight. For one family from Bishop, California, one of the first indications something was wrong with 7-year-old Evabelle (“Belle”) came when she stopped reading “Charlotte’s Web,” the book she had been immersed in. “We didn’t realize that meant anything,” says her father, Waylon.  The next signs were more obvious. At dinner, Belle suddenly looked vacant-eyed, her mother, Jami, remembers. Her parents asked Belle if everything was OK at school or if something bad had happened, and Belle said all was fine. The next day, Belle threw up in the car. She was listless and constantly thirsty. By nighttime, she had dark circles under her eyes and “looked like a zombie,” her father says.

That night, Jami slept on the floor beside Belle’s bed. When Belle woke and started to gasp for breath, her parents rushed her to the local hospital. There they got a diagnosis they didn’t expect: Belle had type 1 diabetes (T1D).  The news came as a mixture of shock and recognition. For Waylon, who had no family history or experience with diabetes, the diagnosis was overwhelming. Jami was, in a way, relieved—she had worried Belle might have leukemia. From the age of 10 until she turned 18, Jami had helped her father cope with his type 2 diabetes. “I knew how to handle this,” she says.  Most adults are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, where the body has trouble utilizing insulin, a hormone produced in the pancreas that regulates the amount of glucose in the blood. For patients with Type 2 diabetes, the origin can be a combination of genetics and lifestyle choices. Type 1—the diagnosis more commonly seen in children—is different.  In T1D, the body’s immune system attacks the insulin-producing cells (beta cells) in the pancreas by mistake and destroys them. The cells can’t produce sufficient insulin, and glucose levels rise. As in Belle’s case, someone with T1D can eventually get sick and dehydrated if not diagnosed quickly. Less common than type 2, T1D affects about 1 in 300 people.  Jennifer Raymond, MD, MCR, clinical diabetes director at Children’s Hospital — who would later become Belle’s doctor—says it’s “completely normal” for families like Belle’s to have lots of questions and concerns when they first hear a diabetes diagnosis. “Their world has just been shaken up.”

She tells those parents three things. First: “There’s nothing you did or didn’t do that caused type 1 diabetes. We don’t know exactly what causes type 1 diabetes, but it seems to be the perfect storm of situations that results in the diagnosis.”

Second: “There is no reason you should have known this was type 1 diabetes.” And lastly: “Pretty much everything you wanted for your child before diabetes can still happen, and it is our job to help you achieve those things.”  Raymond knows what she’s talking about. The CHLA Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism is ranked fifth in the nation in its field on U.S. News & World Report’s annual survey of the country’s best children’s hospitals. (CHLA is ranked the top pediatric hospital in California and No. 6 nationwide.)  The Division’s expert team of endocrinologists, nurse practitioners, nurses, dietitians, social workers, psychologists, and other diabetes specialists routinely care for some 2,000 children with diabetes per year.

But before Belle’s family could arrive at CHLA, they had to get Belle’s crisis under control. The day of that critical diagnosis, Belle was airlifted from Bishop to a larger hospital in Reno, Nevada. Jami flew with her, while Waylon dropped off their younger daughter, 6-year-old Aurora, at his mother’s home, and left the family dogs in his father’s care. He asked neighbors to watch over their 4-H goats and ponies. Then he drove the 200-plus miles to Reno. “It seemed like someone had moved it farther away on the map,” he says.  There, the family underwent what Waylon calls “a crash course in diabetes with a steep learning curve.”  Over several days, the medical team in Reno stabilized Belle’s condition, though her blood sugar levels remained somewhat erratic. When her parents asked about getting Belle an insulin pump, which would deliver the needed doses automatically, hospital personnel said that could take at least a year.

The family went home to Bishop and began their new reality. Fortunately, they already lived a healthy lifestyle at their home 18 miles outside of town, hiking, horseback riding and waterskiing on a regular basis. They knew how to cook healthy food, and Belle preferred veggies over carbohydrates and sugar. Still, the way forward was unclear.

Then serendipity happened, in the form of Barbie McCoy, a client of Jami’s nail business who had become such a close friend over the years that Jami calls her “Aunt.” Barbie, who lives in L.A., said she had a longtime friend, Brooke Anderson, who happened to be a member of the CHLA Foundation Board of Trustees. Both Barbie and Brooke told the family they needed to see the diabetes experts at CHLA. Barbie opened her home to them.

The moment Jami and Waylon entered CHLA in June with Belle and Aurora, they knew they were in a different kind of hospital. As the parents prepared to meet with Raymond and a team of experts, “a nurse walked in with a bag of coloring books and took Aurora with her, so we could have a one-on-one conversation without worrying about her,” says Waylon. “They had everything wired down.”  Within a few hours, under CHLA’s experienced care, Belle’s blood sugar levels were under control, and she and her parents were learning what they needed to do to move forward. The team equipped the family with the latest continuous glucose monitoring system, which saves Belle from having to do “finger sticks” to check her glucose levels. And they asked Belle’s parents how soon they wanted the insulin pump, which can deliver insulin based on each user’s personal setting, avoiding the need for injections. Then they ordered it—without delay.

Most important, the team gave the family added confidence in managing Belle’s condition. “No child with diabetes at any age is ever alone,” says Raymond. “Your parents and family and our team at CHLA are always with you. You can go home and still have a team of people helping you.”  To Raymond, the standard of care is a simple equation. “I always ask myself: What would I want for my 4-year-old son? That’s what we provide for Belle and all the children we see.”

Armed with new knowledge, the family returned to Bishop. School brought welcome routine, and other helpers. Belle’s second-grade teacher sets an alarm ahead of snack time, so Belle has time to check her blood. Her classmates remind her as well.

Belle, who turns 8 in November, “has stepped up in ways I didn’t anticipate,” says her mother. Belle has learned to give herself insulin shots. She’s still doing the things she loves, like riding horses, scooters and bikes, jumping on the trampoline and reading. Sometimes Belle says, “I wish I didn’t have diabetes,” then looks at her mom and adds, “But I know you’re going to tell me it could be worse.”  Belle hasn’t started using her insulin pump yet, preferring to give herself shots for now. Her parents are letting her decide when she’s ready.  Both Jami and Waylon are grateful they’ve had the opportunity to get Belle’s care at CHLA. “It’s wonderful,” says Jami. “Awesome,” agrees Waylon. “Go there first if you can. This is what they do.”

Prevention:  Research at CHLA

Currently there is no known prevention for type 1 diabetes — no therapies that can alter the immune system and stop it from destroying beta cells in kids like Belle. CHLA is on the front lines of research as a member of TrialNet, an international network of researchers exploring ways to prevent, delay and reverse the progression of T1D. CHLA’s TrialNet team performs more than 300 screenings annually of family members of people with T1D to assess their risk for developing the disease and evaluate immune system modulators in prevention. CHLA also participates in three prevention trials for family members whose screening results suggest they have a high risk of developing T1D.

Medical Mystery

Doctors at Children’s Hospital team up to solve the puzzle of a child’s vision problems.

By Candace Pearson, Courtesy CHLA

One ordinary, random morning, when he was barely 5 years old, Reiter woke up and “he was a different child,” recalls his mother, Stephanie.  “I see two mommies. I see two daddies,” Reiter told his mom and his dad, Damien.

Reiter’s left eye was severely crossed, pointing inward and locked in that position. His depth perception was off and he was anxious. So were his parents. “I was terrified, to be honest — he wasn’t himself,” says his mother. “I went into a whole tailspin of ‘What’s wrong with my child?’”  What was wrong would turn out to be a puzzle that confounded a series of doctors and sent the family on a journey of scary and often contradictory diagnoses before they found their way to Children’s Hospital.

One doctor the family saw early on in 2010 predicted that Reiter probably had a brain tumor and referred them to an oncologist. Another thought he might have a rare neurological disorder. At times, Reiter’s double vision seemed to go away, then return.  Eventually, the family’s pediatrician, who had completed her residency at Children’s Hospital, turned to Eyal Ben-Isaac, MD, director of CHLA’s Pediatric Residency Program, and associate professor of Pediatrics at the Keck School of Medicine of USC.

Ben-Isaac is part of the cadre of CHLA specialists at the ready to help community pediatricians solve medical mysteries. “It’s our job to figure out those difficult diagnoses,” he says. “It makes pediatricians in our community more comfortable knowing they can reach out to us when their own resources are exhausted. Our goal is to help them help their patients.”

Ben-Isaac began researching Reiter’s symptoms. He saw why other doctors might have suspected a brain tumor (the double vision, abnormal eye movements). As he plowed through medical journals and textbooks, he narrowed down the possibilities in a process of exclusion.  One potential diagnosis stood out: benign recurrent sixth nerve palsy, a rare condition affecting the sixth cranial nerve that often occurs after a viral illness (Reiter had had a cold.) Damage to the sixth nerve causes the eye to turn inward. Ben-Isaac couldn’t rule it out, but there are no tests to confirm it.

In the meantime, ophthalmologist Talia Kolin, MD, took up Reiter’s case in The Vision Center at Children’s Hospital. An international referral center for children with complex eye diseases, The Vision Center is the only program of its kind in the U.S. with expertise in virtually every pediatric ophthalmologic subspecialty.  Kolin became concerned that some of Reiter’s symptoms resembled myasthenia gravis, a neuromuscular disease that leads to muscle weakness. The most commonly affected muscles include the eyes and face. The disease can progress very rapidly and even affect the breathing muscles, increasing the importance of a quick diagnosis.

So Ben-Isaac called on Mark Borchert, MD, director of the Eye Birth Defects Program and the Eye Technology Program at The Vision Center. Borchert was able to conduct a highly specialized test that, ultimately, showed Reiter did not have the neuromuscular disease.

With Reiter’s symptoms intermittent, the doctors decided the best course of action was to monitor him as he grew. “We needed more data and more time to follow Reiter and definitely figure out what he had and how best to treat it,” says Borchert.  Diagnosing a young child can be tricky, he adds. “They can’t always tell you what they’re experiencing because, at that age, it’s easy for them to ignore a symptom or to compensate for problems and not even know they’re doing it.”

Gradually, Reiter’s crossed eye and double vision seemed to go away. For about three years, he was largely symptom free. The family breathed a sign of relief—until this year. Reiter, now 13, told his mom that his double vision had returned. She immediately called Ben-Isaac, who once again turned to Borchert.  Borchert is accustomed to diagnostic dilemmas like Reiter’s. “What I do every day is a lot of puzzle solving,” he says.

To help confirm his suspicions, Borchert asked Reiter’s mother to bring in photos of Reiter over the years, starting from birth. “We used to call this a ‘shoebox biopsy,’ based on those days when people kept their photos in shoeboxes,” he explains. “Now the shoebox is a cell phone.”  He immediately noticed that Reiter tended to keep his chin down, starting early in childhood, and now even while on the soccer field or boogie boarding. That told Borchert what he needed to know.

He gave the family a new diagnosis: v-pattern esotropia, a form of strabismus, or crossed eyes, in which one or both eyes turn inward. “I didn’t have to be Dr. House to figure this out,” he says, referring to the fictional TV doctor famous for solving hard-to-diagnose cases.  V-pattern esotropia isn’t rare, but what is uncommon is how well Reiter coped with it. Many kids with vision problems tend to ignore one problem eye and look through the “better” eye. Reiter, who has 20/20 vision, didn’t use that strategy. He used both eyes so well together, he kept doing that, but tilted his head in compensation.

The good news is Reiter’s recent diagnosis of v-pattern estropia can be fixed with eye-muscle surgery. The date for surgery has not been set yet, but his mother and father are hopeful that when it happens, it will be the “end of the road” for Reiter’s vision problems.  “We’re so grateful to the doctors at CHLA—for their expertise and their answers,” says Reiter’s mom. For now, Reiter is too busy tackling eighth grade and kicking winning goals to worry.

Go Ahead… Give Yourself a Real Treat This Month!

The month of October can be a spooky month, maybe even a scary month with monstrous problems. Yikes!! Well maybe not, but words like that seem to be popping up everywhere as kids and adults alike look forward to Halloween. In fact, according to the USA Today, adults spend more on themselves to celebrate Halloween than any other day during the year. I get that. Especially if they want to hang out with the kids to go trick or treating, or to a Halloween party of some kind. For many homeowners and home buyers though, they are truly scared. Scared to death of how in the world they are going to get out of their house and into their next one (the trick). My Treat: As a result of working with over 5,000 home buyers, sellers, renters and landlords over a 15-year time span, we have developed a special program to help home sellers and homebuyers. We will guarantee the sale of their present home at a price agreeable to them and in the unlikely event their home does not sell, we’ll buy it. Now that is a how you turn a trick into a real treat!

Vol 4, Issue 10, Oct 2018

— Give Yourself a Treat in this Month of Tricks
— Special LIFE TIME Guarantee You Can Share
— How Your Referrals Help the Kids
— And Much More…

AND remember… YOUR referrals help the Kids.

My heart breaks for many young people and families who will not be able to enjoy this fun time of the year out trick or treating or going to Halloween parties. As you know, tragedy falls on many in this life. Tragedies like sickness, cancers and other nasty diseases. We aim to do what we can to help kids who are unable to get out and have fun right now, due to these evil health problems. We are still on a mission to raise $25,000 for the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Helping Hands Fund. We do this by donating to them a portion of our income from homes we sell. As you know Children’s Hospital Los Angeles does great work in helping kids fight through and survive nasty diseases like cancer, Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, leukemia and others. Kids under their care are 300% more likely to enter into remission IF they can get into the recovery center. BUT, the Recovery Center survives on Sponsorships and Donations. So YOUR REFERRALS REALLY DO HELP THE KIDS…

Who do you know considering buying or selling a home you could refer to my real estate sales team?

Not only will they benefit from our award winning service, but we donate a portion of our income on every home sale to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Helping Hands Fund.

Why I Support Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles

I grew up right here in Los Angeles. Born right nearby at St. Francis Hospital. I remember when I first heard about a young person close to our family suffering from a nasty disease and getting treated for that at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. It was then that I began to pay closer attention to the work they do at that hospital. Since then, I have learned that it is a collection of hard working health care professionals, most making their home right here in the Los Angeles area, all coming together for a common cause. That cause is to help young people over come unfortunate health issues that life sometimes throws our way. Being a Los Angeles area, California native, I take pride in supporting in any way that I can the good work these people do at Children’s. My team rally’s around our annual goal of raising money and donating portions of our income to help Children’s in their quest to heal young people when they need healing. My team and I are committed to providing outstanding results for buyers and sellers referred to us by our past clients. I have discovered that Children’s Hospital Los Angeles shares similar commitments to their patients. And since their services survive on sponsorships and donations we are happy to contribute and proud to support them.

She Is Tessa, Hear Her Roar

Urged on by a mantra started by her parents, Tessa fought like a tiger to overcome leukemia.

It was an innocent question, one for which Meredith had the good fortune of not knowing the answer—otherwise she wouldn’t have asked it: “What are labs?” After a week of fever for her 4-year-old daughter, Tessa, the usual pediatric culprits—strep, ear infection—had been exonerated, so her pediatrician ordered labs, explaining that labs were merely a simple blood draw. “Now I look back and laugh,” Meredith says. “I didn’t know what labs were. I didn’t know anything about anything—then.” Then wasn’t destined to last much longer. The test results showed that Tessa’s white blood cell count was low, leading automatically to the presumption that she had a virus, which would run its course. When the fever and low white count persisted, the pediatrician escalated the case. An infectious disease specialist, noting Tessa’s chapped lips and red eyes, was suspicious of Kawasaki disease, but an echocardiogram turned up nothing. Next came a referral to a pediatric rheumatologist, who laid out Tessa’s condition squarely. “She said, ‘There are two explanations,'” Meredith recounts. “‘There’s something in her body killing off white blood cells, or something in her body is not producing white blood cells. You need to figure out which one of those two it is.'” The second scenario would mean cancer, as the aberrant leukemia cells impede the bone marrow’s ability to make normal white blood cells.

Confusing matters was Tessa’s cheerfulness. All along, the pediatrician had told Meredith she was not worried about leukemia, considering how vibrant and unaffected Tessa appeared. After the opinion of the rheumatologist, the pediatrician ordered a bone marrow biopsy. It came back inconclusive, so a second one was done three days later, leaving no ambiguity. The finding was acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). That was a Friday, Oct. 9, 2015, and arrangements were made for Tessa to begin treatment at her local hospital the following Monday. Family members urged Meredith to bring her sooner to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. The in-laws of one of her two sisters were friends with Robert Adler, MD, a pediatrician and chief medical officer for the CHLA Health System, and enlisted his help to get Meredith to act. Adler made a call to Meredith at 9 p.m. that Saturday night. He told her flatly that her daughter should not be at home. Meredith countered, remarking that Tessa was “literally playing soccer in the hallway with her brother” and appeared fine. Adler wouldn’t have it. “No,” he said. “Your daughter has leukemia. You need to bring her to the hospital.” His message got through, and Meredith and her husband, Brett, brought Tessa to CHLA the next morning. “I was devastated,” she says. “I don’t want to ever go back to how those 48 hours felt, between Friday finding out and Sunday morning admitting her to the hospital.” Her outlook was revived Monday morning when the family awoke to what Meredith is convinced was no random act of scheduling. Her other sister volunteers at Dream Street, a summer camp for kids battling illness, and has made friends with several of the CHLA nurses who also volunteer at Dream Street— including the one in the hospital’s Infusion Center who was stationed at the desk outside Tessa’s room that first morning. It struck Meredith as too powerful to be coincidental, but was rather a surefire instance of cosmic intervention. “It was like a sign someone sent you: You’re not doing this alone,” she says. “Despite this horrible thing that you have to go through, there’s someone making sure you’re going to be OK. And I’m not religious at all, in any way, but that was not accidental. There was no way that that wasn’t the universe saying, ‘We haven’t forgotten you. We haven’t put you somewhere that you can’t handle. We’re going to get you through this.'”

After antibiotics subdued Tessa’s fever, she began treatment for ALL, starting with blitzing the leukemia cells with an intense 30 days of intravenous and oral chemotherapy, under the care of CHLA oncologist Jacquelyn Baskin, MD, who was on service the day Tessa arrived in the Emergency Department. Tessa passed the critical first marker: A bone marrow biopsy after the first month of chemotherapy found no evidence of leukemia. She was in remission. She would receive rigorous treatment for the next several months, a period called consolidation in which the regimen of chemotherapy continues, aiming to kill off any dormant leukemia cells that weren’t zapped in the initial 30 days. Regular lumbar punctures searched for any abnormal cells lurking in the spine. In June 2016, Tessa advanced to the lengthy maintenance phase, reducing the weekly trips to the hospital for intravenous chemo to monthly, while continuing to take oral chemo medication at home. Meredith says outside of a lot of fatigue, Tessa bore up well. Nausea was minimal and the hair loss didn’t faze her. It was the concurrent regimen of steroids that had the worst effects. “It made her cranky, it made her angry, it made her moody—and hungry,” Meredith says. “Steroids make you so hungry. She was doing five days of steroids every month. It started on a Thursday and would go till Tuesday. We would plan our life around it: If it’s a steroid weekend, don’t make any plans.” Brett recalls a moment at the hospital early on, awaiting one of Tessa’s first lumbar punctures. She was in the midst of her program of steroids but couldn’t eat prior to the procedure. “She was like a ravenous bear,” he says. “I’ll never forget being in the waiting room and she’s just going bananas. She’s yelling and screaming at us how hungry she is. This other family, with a boy—I think he was a month or two ahead of Tessa on the protocol—they look over and say, ‘It will get better.'” To get Tessa through the roughest parts of treatment, Meredith and Brett came up with a motto. They called their daughter a tough tiger. “Tessa, you can do it,” they would implore. “You’re a tough tiger.” Brett, who works for Warner Bros. in film distribution, is a winemaker on the side. In 2016 he developed a rosé he named Pink Tiger, a nod to Tessa’s dogged spirit as well as her favorite color. A graphic des

A graphic designer friend created the label for the wine, setting white paw prints on a background of pink tiger stripes. On the backside, Brett wrote a blurb that mentioned his daughter’s health crisis and shouted out “all of the tough tigers out there” fighting leukemia. “These kids, the way they handle it, it leaves you in awe,” he says. “They just deal like you wouldn’t imagine. They carry on.” The label also notes that all money from sales of the wine is donated to “one of the world’s greatest cancer-fighting institutions, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.” Last year, that sum turned out to be $1,500 after Brett sold the 20-odd cases of Pink Tiger within two days, mostly to family and friends in Southern California. Warner Bros. kicked in another $1,000, bringing the total contribution to $2,500. This year, with an increase in the price of a bottle, he’s hoping to reach $3,500. “Tessa knows this is her wine,” he says. “When we bottled the 2016—the first vintage of this—she and I went to the winery; she was right there with me. When we saw those first bottles coming around the conveyor belt, it was really special.” Tessa took her final oral chemotherapy tablet on Feb. 9, 2018, ending her leukemia treatment. For the time being, she returns to CHLA every eight weeks so Baskin can check her blood cell counts and examine her for anything out of the ordinary. “If all those things are negative and she’s doing fine at home, then the concern for relapse is low,” Baskin says. Since going off the medication, Tessa, now 7, has her old juice back. “It’s like someone took a pound of bricks off her shoulders,” Meredith says. “Before, we’d go somewhere and she’d say, ‘I don’t want to walk. It’s too far.’ Now the kid dances everywhere she goes. She’s a different child.” Meredith is changed as well. She has had her fill of turbulence and now aspires to nothing beyond humdrum. “If you can give me routine for the rest of my life, I’ll take it. I don’t need anything exciting. I just want to get up every day, drop my kids off at school, go to work, come home and make them dinner. The stresses of everyday life are a godsend.” Recently, a friend at Brett’s job gave him a pink-tiger stuffed animal to pass on to Tessa. She walks around all day clutching it. She’ll outgrow it. But the backstory will endure. “Absolutely,” Meredith says. “She is a tough tiger. She will forever be a tough tiger.”

The Power of the Other

People have a starlting effect on you. Parents know this. Most will fight to keep their child from associating with those they believe exhibit bad behavior. So much so they are willing to pack up their entire house and move across town or to another state, even country. They know their child’s well-being and future is at stake. Association WILL impact their child’s development. But for whatever reason, many of those same parents, and most people in general, don’t recognize the significance others impact their own life. #coreychambers

The Power of the OtherLet’s say I want to be a great leader. I should go hang out with and learn from great leaders. How about I need to lose some weight? Well, I can shed it much easier and faster going to the gym vs working out at home. Even faster, more permanent and cement better dietary habits if I go to the gym, have a personal trainer and associate with others already living out a healthy life.  #socalhome

Recently, the Broker and COO of our great real estate company handed me a copy of Dr. Henry Cloud’s book, The Power of the Other. In his book he makes it clear the power others have over us and why.  #realestate

Let’s say your plane lands, and the flight attendant says, ‘it is now safe to use your mobile phones”. You turn yours on and what’s the first thing that happens? You receive a message at the top of the screen that reads: ‘searching…’ or ‘searching for connection…’ or ‘searching for network’. Until the phone connects with the network, nothing happens. But when it connects, miracles occur, in the invisible world. The phones capabilities are now empowered to be all they were designed to be. It can now automatically download or fix bugs in the software; it can download new apps that enable it to do things I couldn’t do before.

Through this connection, all of the resources of the outside world are suddenly at your disposal and ready to provide benefit. Through this link, the phone connects you to the entire world, all of its information and knowledge, help and skill, to enable better performance. From this one connection almost, anything is possible. The phones surpass its previous limits… it can get bigger and better. But without a connection to the right network, that little device will never be able to do everything it was designed to do. Sure, it might still be able to tell you the time or see a calendar of your events or serve as a repository of previous communication and photos, but without a strong and steady connection, nothing new or better can occur. Without a connection the device has hit its limit. It continues to produce the same results you were producing on the plane even if you try harder.

Humans are exactly like that. You are like that; I am like that. From the moment we are born, the moment we land, a ‘chip’ inside each of us starts searching for a connection to the right network, one that will provide us with the energy and information (coding) to go beyond our present ability, experience, and performance. And this searching, this needing a connection, is not optional for any of us. It is hardwired and always on, even when we don’t know it in even when we don’t even desire it. As long as you are alive your heart and mind and soul will be searching for a connection. In others. Several others. A community that will bring life, all the ingredients of life that you need to get past the limit of your present existence and performance.  The need for connection begins before infancy and continues throughout life. If you are alive, you needed to thrive. We are fueled from the outside, from connection with others. Whether it’s a smart phone or a human, when the system can’t make a connection, it begins to run down. This is an indisputable reality. Humans need connection and their systems are always searching for ones. 

Popular wisdom suggests that we should not allow others to have power over us, but the reality is that they do, for better or for worse. Consider the boss who diminishes you through cutting remarks versus one who challenges you to get better. Or the colleague who always seeks the limelight versus the one who gives you the confidence to finish a difficult project. Or the spouse who is honest and supportive versus the one who resents your success. No matter how talented, intelligent, or experienced, the greatest leaders share one commonality: the power of the others in their lives. 

Dr Cloud
Dr Cloud

Combining engaging case studies, persuasive findings from cutting edge brain research, and examples from his consulting practice, Dr. Henry Cloud, in his book, argues that whether you’re a navy seal or a corporate executive, outstanding performance depends on having the right kind of interpersonal connections to fuel personal growth and minimize toxic associations and their effects. Presenting a dynamic model of the impact these different kinds of connections produce, Dr. cloud shows readers how to get more from themselves by drawing on the strength and expertise of others. You don’t have a choice whether others have power in your life, but you can choose what kinds of relationships you want.

Sell and Buy House Same Day

For home sellers who want to sell and buy a home at the same time, they often wonder exactly how they can sell and buy a house on the same day. Here’s a special report on how it can all go smoothly.

How to Avoid Getting Stuck With Two Homes

Sell and Buy House Same DayThe Solution

We’ve all heard the old saying about being caught between a rock and a hard place. Well, unfortunately, that’s where most homeowners find themselves when they decide to move from one home to another.

The Real Estate Catch 22

Sell and Buy Home Same TimeYou see, if you buy before selling, you could run the risk of owning two homes. Or, just as bad, if you sell first, you could end up homeless. That’s what is known as the Real Estate Catch 22, and for thousands of homeowners, it’s an extremely stressful position they find themselves in.



“ If you buy before selling, you could run the risk of owning two homes . . .”

How to Avoid The Real Estate Catch 22

“ . . . or just as bad, if you sell first, you could end up homeless”

This financial and emotional tightrope is one many homeowners feel they have to walk alone. However, you should seek out agents offering specialized programs that can eliminate the stress and worry associated with selling and buying another home.

The Solution

 

THE DILEMMA

The biggest dilemma when considering purchasing another home is deciding whether to buy first or sell first. Either way is risky because you could end up owning two homes or no home at all. Let’s face it, the real estate market has become a tough environment for buyers and sellers alike. The fact is that it’s more difficult to get homes sold today and therefore it’s essential that real estate agents look for new and innovative ways to meet the demands of the market.

THE SOLUTION A new and innovative program that some agents offer actually guarantees the sale of your home and takes away all of the worry and stress associated with selling and buying another home.

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS

❶ Your agent will prepare a total market analysis including a computerized print-out of all comparable home sales and listings in your area.

❷ With this information you and your agent can determine a market value for your home.

❸ This establishes your guaranteed price and list price which you will receive up front (in writing) before your home is marketed.

❹ You are doubly protected because you know that your home will sell for the guaranteed price. However if you receive an offer from an outside buyer for more than the guarantee price you get the higher offer.

❺ You can confidently look for your next home and immediately place a firm cash offer (not a conditional one) when you find a home you like because you know the minimum that your home will sell for and when you can expect to receive the money from it’s sale.

❻ This service eliminates the usual stress and worry (the emotional roller coaster ride) of whether to buy first or sell first so you can avoid the risk of getting stuck with two homes or no home at all.

Remember, not all agents are alike and you should consider only those that can offer you the most innovative marketing plan available to ensure that your needs are completely and properly met.

Indio (the Spanish word for Indian) is a city in Riverside County, located in the Coachella Valley 23 miles east of Palm Springs, and 127 miles east of Los Angeles.  The City of Indio grew into existence, starting in 1876, because of the need for a halfway point between Yuma, Arizona and Los Angeles where the Southern Pacific Railroad could refill its engines with water.  The first permanent building in Indio was the Southern Pacific Depot station and hotel.

Although Indio started as a railroad town, the local economy later revolved around agriculture. Today, real estate is among the largest of Indio’s industries.  #indio #homes #forsale

The USDA built the “Date Station” in Indio in 1907 and performed scientific research on the fruit that grew to be a major part of Indio culture.  This research helped turn the Coachella Valley into the leader of date production with exports shipped all the way to the middle east- the County Fair became known for its theme featuring dates and Middle Eastern styles.

Coachella and Thermal became larger cities than Indio for a time, but Indio retained the name as the “Hub of the Valley”, and by the 1930’s it was a thriving city which outpaced its neighbors and incorporated.  On September 6, 1930, storekeeper Fred Kohler received the first official business license from the city.  Visiting soldiers from Patton’s training grounds in Chiriaco Summit located 30 miles to the east also helped the city to grow.  After the recession of the late 2000s, the local economy has rebounded and wealthier residents have moved in fueling something of a real estate boom.

High mountain ranges on three sides of the Coachella Valley contribute to its year-round warm climate, with some of warmest winters west of the Rockies.  Indio has a warm winter and hot summer climate.  Low temperatures in the winter average a mild 62°F, but summer highs can reach 120°F during the day time and night lows often stay above 82°F.  Average annual precipitation is under 4 inches with at least 348 days of sunshine per year.

Indio has its own police department.  The city contracts for fire and paramedic services with the Riverside County Fire Department through a cooperative agreement.  Indio has 4 fire stations housing 4 engine companies, 3 paramedic ambulances and 1 truck company.

County Fair and Date Festival, Indio

Year-round agriculture and tourism are the two major sources of revenue for the city with the majority of tourism between October and May.  Indio is one of Southern California’s most important agricultural regions, and still grows most of the nation’s crop of dates.  The area has seen some decline in agriculture however, as new residential development has pushed the date and citrus groves and vegetable fields to the south and southeast of the city.  Travelers from around the world still can stop by Shields Date Gardens though, where a large retail store is still maintained next to State Highway 111 in Indio.  Over the past decade, most new jobs have been in the retail and hospitality industries with many hotel and golf resorts being built in the area.  There is some light industry in the city dating back to the 1960’s with companies producing ammunition for the U.S. military, train engines for Southern Pacific, and even moon rover and computer parts for the Apollo moon landing program.

Many corporations have also located offices in indio because of the low cost and easy access to major transportation routes.  Some of the businesses include fruit packing and shipping firms, United States Filter Corporation, Guy Evans Inc., Dimare Fruit Co., West Coast Turf, Sun World Inc.; and move-in companies such as Borden, Coca-Cola, Ernie Ball, Ernst and Young, Ferguson, Fulton Distributors, Guthy-Renker, Pulte Homes, Sunrise Company, SunScape Tech and Tala Industries.

There are two Native American owned casinos in and near Indio: the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino, owned by the Cabazon Band of Mission Indians, and the Spotlight 29 Casino, owned by the Twenty-Nine Palms Band.

Arts and culture

Southwestern Art Festival

The Indio Chamber of Commerce has made the city’s official nickname “The City of Festivals” because of the many festivals and special events held there annually.  Two major annual festivals held here are the National Date Festival and the Indio International Tamale Festival.

The Riverside County Fair and National Date Festival are held each February at the fairgrounds, located on Highway 111 in the heart of Indio.  Since 1947, this festival has celebrated the the Coachella Valley date fruit crop because of its importance to the regions economy and culture.

The Tamale Festival is held each December on the streets of Old Town Indio and is one of the world’s largest tamale festivals with 120,000 in attendance for the Dec. 2000 event.  The festival also once held the record for the world’s largest tamale, over 1 foot in diameter and 40 feet in length!

The Riverside County Fairgrounds also hosts various events year round such as music concerts, 4×4 monster truck rallies, rodeos or other special events.

In 1993, Pearl Jam performed a concert at the Empire Polo Club in Indio and six years later the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was born.  Coachella has become an annual event that brings bands and musicians known around the world to the desert, including: AC/DC, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Guns N’ Roses, Prince, Paul McCartney, Kanye West, Radiohead, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Pixies, The Cure, The White Stripes, Jay-Z, Tool, Beastie Boys, Jane’s Addiction, Roger Waters and hundreds more.  In May 2007, the promoters of Coachella started Stagecoach, a two-day country music festival held the weekend following the Coachella. Performers have included George Strait, Kenny Chesney, the Eagles, Sugarland, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and Kid Rock.

Indio is also the site of the annual Southwest Arts Festival, the Cabazon Indian National Pow Wow, the Heritage Festival at the Coachella Valley History Museum, and many more.

Some other points of interest are the Coachella Valley History Museum on Miles Avenue in Indio which has a two-acre campus, that includes the Smiley-Tyler House, built in 1926, the 1909 Schoolhouse, and the Date Museum dedicated to the history and development of the fruit (the only date museum in the world), plus gardens and archives preserving historical artifacts of the Coachella Valley.  Visitors can also find 10 murals around the city, painted on the sides of various buildings in old town and a water reservoir tank on Monroe Street depicting the city’s history and cultural roots.
