I always thought the powers that be in the U.S. got the name wrong – Labor Day. Since it’s a Holiday intended to be just that, a Holiday – I would think the proper name would be Relax Day or Lazy Day or Off Day or Sleep in Day, something other than Labor Day. Unfortunately, most celebrate Labor Day by doing just that – Laboring. Government employees and Bank’s typically close up shop on Labor Day, but according to recent studies the majority of Americans are laboring on Labor Day. So to celebrate the month of September and the affection for Laboring, I have a special announcement to make: I will be Laboring, but for a very special reason. Right now, many would be home owners and home sellers are caught in a catch 22. They are nervous about moving or the opposite, desperate to make a move. This is why we have developed a special program for those you know that are considering a move.
Just like the weather, seasons come and seasons go, so do the seasons of life. I’m sure you have noticed, as I have, the older I get the faster the seasons move by. These “seasons of life” go by so fast, my hope is that you enjoy each one or at least grow from each one. Yes. Some of life’s seasons will be HOT and others will be COLD, some high and some low. The lows we want to move by quickly, the highs we want to stay in forever sometimes.

Meet the publisher of the L.A. Loft Blog, Corey Chambers
In the most exciting place on earth, amid the cityscape that delivers every convenience, the drama often hides behinds the scenes. Four days after fighting off a brawny pit bull mauling of his 14-lb chihuahua-dachshund-boxer mix, Downtown loft broker Corey Chambers is gleeful that his broken toe was not bitten off and swallowed by the iron-jawed animal. To save his little love-of-his-life lap dog Zzyzx — Corey calls him “Wuppy” — from being torn to shreds, Corey kicked the pit bull with all of his might. Barely affecting the 100-lb machine of muscle and jaws, the 183-lb kick was just enough to destabilize the monstrous puppy-eater, keeping the big beast from turning the sparkly-eyed wuppy into a suffering heap of dog-baby grief. “Thank God my wuppy is ok!,” erupts Corey. Lucky elation emanates as the animal emergency room doctor announces that the beloved little friend received only minor external abrasions. Wuppy will be OK.
Dogs and people have long been part of Corey’s life. Today, while helping thousands of home buyers, sellers, renters and landlords, he today works at home to keep the little pup from suffering separation anxiety while domestic partner Mike is out working 12-hour shifts. #coreychambers
Taking calls from confused renters trying to find a loft for less than the average whopping Downtown rent of $2,531 per month, Corey refers the hordes of struggling renters whom he cannot possibly help all of, giving them good vibes and free tips on the best and cheapest cool loft rentals buildings in Downtown Los Angeles. “They are the buildings that do not advertise. They don’t always answer their phone, and they are hard to reach,” explains the Downtown loft guru, “But they have the best deals.” Corey can only show properties to a fraction of the dozens per day who call him, but he somehow finds a way to help each one to find a modern, timeless place to call home.
When asked about the current Downtown real estate market, Chambers responds “Downtown has seen above-average growth for nearly 20 years.” DTLA, in fact, has made many thousands of people happier and richer, but most do not consciously consider the economics of Downtown. Buyers buy when they have the money, and they want to own real estate and pay their own mortgage instead of paying their landlords mortgage for them. Buyers also buy — especially investors — when they make too much money and they need a tax break. Renters in Downtown usually choose to rent because they want to enjoy the hip, urban lifestyle and convenience of many shops, restaurants, bars, pubs, entertainment and transportation venues within short walking distance. They love the lifestyle, open space, high ceilings, big windows, views and character of historic and industrial live/work lofts with cosmopolitan allure. | PDF
“Sellers sell because they want to move to the suburbs, or because they want to lock in their gains,” Corey explains. “Landlords appreciate the long-term value of their loft, and they enjoy the fruits of their long-term stable investment that can bring infinite returns.”
Unlike most real estate agents, Corey has a reputation for revealing the whole truth, disclosing the down sides of Downtown. “Downtown Los Angeles has huge up sides and many major down sides, reveals Corey. “Prospective home buyers need to know the whole truth, the pros and the cons of Downtown and all of the properties in it.” Downtown still suffers from a major homeless population, common big city crime, while the loft buildings all have various issues such as loft lending issues, lawsuits and other issues. Only when fully informed by a knowledgeable neighborhood specialist, can buyers be 100% happy with their purchase. | REVIEWS
