Exciting New Year’s Resolution…    #helpkids #buyhome #jimmykimmel

As a fellow Lover of Holiday Time, I wanted to write you this personal letter and share with you some exciting news for the New Year.
It seems most people establish New Year’s resolutions, but for whatever reason they fall short of keeping them. Each year I highlight a great book that helped me and my team dramatically improve our follow through on achieving important goals and I wanted to share that with you – as sort of a Happy New Year After Christmas Gift; more on the book in a moment.

Some of your friends, neighbors, associates or relatives may have a New Year’s resolution to make a move. Well – we can help them with that, help you and help the kids at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles at the same time. In this special issue, Jimmy Kimmel shares the touching story of his son Billy.

In This Issue Vol 3, Issue 12
 January 2018

— Your New Year’s Resolution, maybe
— The NEW Year and Your Friends
— How Your Referrals Help the Children
— And Much More

For the month of January, anyone you know wanting to sell their house, I will guarantee the sale of their home for 100% of Market Value or I’ll Pay the Difference.*

They outline the goals, I agree to deliver, if I don’t, I pay the penalty. Who do you know considering selling their home that would benefit from that kind of peace of mind?  Just let me know and we’ll give them a call!

AND REMEMBER… YOUR referrals help the Kids…

Just like last year, we are on a mission to raise $25,000 for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. We do this by donating 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 life threatening diseases like cancer, Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, leukemia and others. They also lead the way in helping kids come back from spinal cord injuries as well as early diagnosis of autism. Last year alone Children’s helped over 1,000,000 kids right here in Greater Los Angeles.

BUT, Children’s relies on Sponsorships and Donations to provide their elite level care and keep families expenses to a minimum. So YOUR REFERRALS REALLY DO HELP THE KIDS…

Referrals help the kids at Children's Hospital Los AngelesWho 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, you can rest assured we are also donating to a very worthy cause.

I want to make it easy to refer your friends, neighbors, associates or family members considering making a move, so here are your options:

1. You can go to www.ReferralsHelpKids.com and enter their contact info on line or forward the link to who you know considering a move.

2. Of course you can always call me direct as well at 888-240-2500.

Over the last decade of helping thousands of people sell, buy or lease the chla-bedplace they call home, we have met some wonderful, loving, caring people. People like you! And any one considering a move you send our way, you can rest assured that not only will they get the award winning service we are known for but a very worthy cause will benefit as well.

The book I mentioned is actually a collection of 365 Daily Insights written by Zig Ziglar and our company’s Chief Inspiration Officer Dr. Ike Reighard. The Title is just that, Daily Insights.

I find this book to be a great way to start each day and better focus on fulfilling my mission of Serving Others in a Big Way! I just had to share it with you and encourage you to order a copy for yourself or anyone you know.

Thanks again and Happy New Year!

Why I Support Children’s Hospital Los Angeles

Corey Chambers Your Home Sold GUARANTEED or I'll Buy It*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 rallys around our annual goal of raising
Baby New Yearmoney 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.

Sincerely,

Corey

The following article courtesy Children’s Hospital Los Angeles:

billy-kimmel-jimmy

The Heart Institute at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is the top-ranked pediatric heart center on the West Coast, according to the prestigious U.S. News & World Report Honor Roll of children’s hospitals. Each year, the Institute performs nearly 1,000 heart surgeries and provides the very best care for every  child—whether or not a child’s father is famous.

Billy Kimmel is one of those children. The son of late-night talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel and his wife, Molly McNearney (co-head writer of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”), Billy was rushed to CHLA shortly after birth with a life-threatening heart defect called tetralogy of Fallot. Like all parents faced with this situation, Kimmel and McNearney were scared. But they quickly realized their son was in the very best hands. Indeed, Billy’s successful surgery—the first of three that will be needed to correct the defect—was all in a day’s work for the surgeons, nurses and other caregivers at the Heart Institute.

“Six days after open-heart surgery, we got to bring him home,” said Kimmel during his first monologue back on the show.

billy-kimmel-cu-jBut Billy’s story was about to get much bigger. His lifesaving surgery happened just as a health care debate was consuming the nation’s political discourse. Kimmel saw a unique opportunity, and used his return to the show to appeal to lawmakers and the American people, in 13 minutes that ran the emotional gamut.

“Before 2014, if you were born with congenital heart disease like my son was, there was a good chance you’d never be able to get health insurance, because you had a pre-existing condition,” he noted. “If your parents didn’t have medical insurance, you might not even live long enough to get denied because of a pre-existing condition.” Kimmel’s impassioned plea went viral; in addition to reaching his regular audience of around 2 million viewers a night, the clip was viewed more than 11.5 million times on YouTube and picked up by nearly 1,900 other media outlets.

“No parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to save their child’s life.” – Jimmy Kimmel

And just like that, the national conversation shifted. Kimmel brought the potential effects of the health care bill into people’s living rooms, and summed it up deftly: “No parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to save their child’s life.”

mother-sister-billy-jimmy-kimmelCHLA had already been mobilizing physicians, nurses, Trustees and supporters to #KeepKidsCovered, and the hospital’s newfound visibility as a result of  Kimmel’s monologue put CHLA front and center in the national conversation about health care coverage.
“This is about the broader issue of preserving compassionate, high-quality care for all children,” said CHLA President and CEO Paul S. Viviano in an op-ed  piece on TheHill.com. Viviano reinforced that message in a piece on CNN.com: “We believe children are entitled to health care provisions to protect pediatric-specific benefits providing medically necessary care determined by a child’s physician.”

To date, the fight to maintain health care coverage beneficial to children, families and the community at large has succeeded. If changes to the Affordable Care Act do pass, CHLA urges protection of Medicaid programs, on which many children with complex health needs depend—and nearly 50 percent of newborns in the United States as well. Every time a bill has begun to work its way through Congress toward a vote, CHLA has mobilized with the message that children and families should be protected. And so has Jimmy Kimmel—admirably using his platform to help sustain health care for children and families.

Thank you, Jimmy.

Jimmy Kimmel’s quotes were excerpted from his original monologue on May 1, 2017. To view the clip in its entirety, visit CHLA.org/SeeWhatJimmyShared.

Why Buyers are Starting to Like SB Grand Lofts For Sale in the Historic Core of Downtown L.A.

As a preview to Downtown’s busy real estate season that begins in earnest on January 2, some 2018 New Year’s homebuyers are coming out early and giving a positive premonition of what is to come.  #newlofts #downtownla #dtla

As an example, during the slow period from October 31 to December 26, prospective loft buyers were only interested in the prettiest of places. But, this week, several buyers began giving positive feedback of more challenged lofts such as SB Grand Unit #307 at 312 W 5th St.

Open live/work loft with private balcony
Open live/work loft space with private balcony

The larger, affordable unit receives less natural light than most condos, so it is darker on the inside.  The unit has extra open space, high ceilings, upgraded wood flooring and a private balcony. This presents a superior fixer investment opportunity that quickly bumps up in value simply by upgrading the lighting and brightening up the decor interior design. The unit is expected to go from no acceptable offers in several months, to suddenly receiving multiple offers above asking price within a few weeks as the busy home buying season gets started early after the new year in Downtown Los Angeles and extra frenzied home buyers start to come out of the woodwork after holiday distractions are over. Those who want a completely move-in ready loft may prefer a recently upgraded loft or a new loft.

Avoid 6 Costly Errors When Moving to a Larger Home and Save Thousands

Unlike the experience of buying a first home, when you’re looking to move-up, and already own a home, there are certain factors that can complicate the situation. It’s very important for you to consider these issues before you list your home for sale. Not only is there the issue of financing to consider, but you also have to sell your present home at exactly the right time in order to avoid either the financial burden of owning two homes or, just as bad, the dilemma of having no place to live during the gap between closings.

Downtown Los Angeles Elleven and SB Lofts Purchased and Sold This Week – True Stories

To help those who are considering making a move in the coming months, the L.A. Loft Blog presents the real-life true stories of loft buyers and sellers who have both just closed escrow on their Downtown lofts.  #lofts #dtla #sold

Just Purchased loft in Downtown Los Angeles
Just Purchased loft in Downtown Los Angeles

TALE OF TWO LOFTS

The buyer of the Elleven loft at 1111 S Grand Ave, Michael Logan, originally began his search on the L.A. Loft Blog looking for a Mills Act historic loft, but instead found that the sunny, south facing Elleven loft in South Park was brighter with its wall of windows, more beautiful yet more practical, and a better deal as the price has been depressed slightly due to a recently settled lawsuit and lots of construction in and around the building.  He also liked that the unit was further away from the homeless shelters, and closer to L.A. Live and Ralph’s Market.

Gianna Ward, the seller of the small Pershing Square SB loft at 312 W 5th Street had been a landlady renting out her unit that she owned to guests on AirBnB, but she had enough of the management work that it entailed, along with the extra costs and havoc associated with short term renters when more damage occurs such as costly plumbing issues.

Both escrows just closed with pleasant negotiations and no bickering during the light and easy holiday real estate season in DTLA.  Michael, the buyer of the Elleven lofts is an art industry professional who loves Downtown, while the seller of the SB Grand is relieved to stop the work and headaches of managing a short-term rental, and to instead gain new cash liquidity for more enjoyable things in her now lighter, more care-free life. Congratulations to each on the successful loft transaction that just closed escrow!

The busy Downtown real estate season is beginning in just days as eager buyers come from all over starting around January 2.  See all properties, listed and unlisted, recently sold around Downtown Los Angeles:

How L.A. Loft Blog Readers Became 1700% Wealthier This Year – Real Estate and Bitcoin

REAL ESTATE NEWS

opportunity-real-estate-bitcoin-800-mk

More millionaires and billionaires were made in 2017 than any other year in history. Some of them right here in Downtown Los Angeles.  For the L.A. Loft Blog, this has been our best year ever.  But, when opportunity knocks, the average person does not usually hear it.  While those with rising wealth always have a eye out for possibilities, the average middle class and struggling person is too busy trying to survive.  They are focused on living for today or just making next month’s rent, so they pass up on the opportunities for rapid growth. Personal growth is also limited by negative thinking. That is why changing our thinking is always the first step to making a quantum leap in personal wealth. The 2nd step is positive action. #realestate

When the L.A. Loft Blog foretold of real estate that was so cheap that homes purchased in 2011 would turn out to be the closest thing to a free home, a few took advantage and purchased Downtown lofts for around $150,000 that have nearly tripled in value to $400,000 just 6 years later. For one’s net worth, that kind of equity growth is much better than a free home.  In another instance, when the L.A. Loft Blog started the new year on January 2 by informing of the Top 10 best real estate investments followed by the Top Ten non- real estate investments, a few took advantage and purchased the #1 investment on the list, Bitcoin.  Those who did saw each $1,000 turn into today’s $17,000. Let’s rejoice in one of the best investments in history! #bitcoin

Even so, some still think it’s a bit crazy and disconnected to discuss Bitcoin and real estate in same blog post.  Their thinking will of course prove to be short-sided as Bitcoin and real estate are already coming together.  This year, the first recorded Bitcoin real estate transaction took place in Texas.  Some websites are now listing real estate for sale with Bitcoin asking prices.

Today, our research shows that a major price adjustment is likely very soon for Bitcoin, so we are informing L.A. Loft blog readers that it is smart to invest just a little to learn about quickly evolving cryptocurrencies. #millsact

The tangible, useful benefits of real estate cannot be replaced by a Bitcoin, but in the future, a single Bitcoin will buy a beautiful home. That same home will later prove to be a better investment for the super long term as the original Bitcoin will return to its origin near nothingness.

Today, we are also informing that home prices will likely show some kind of plateau or down correction in the coming years, but home ownership will still be a much better deal and a far better investment than renting for the vast majority as the net worth of home owners has skyrocketed.

Historic Mills Act Lofts Property Tax Benefits

Those who prefer to rent can still take advantage of Bitcoin and real estate.  Several Loft Blog readers have taken advantage and purchases multiple rental income homes across the U.S. under $50,000 each.

How the Readers of the L.A. Loft Blog Defeated the Most Dangerous Con-Man in Los Angeles

He tried to use Downtown real estate to take advantage of people. BIG MISTAKE!  The prey turned out to be stronger than the predator.

Victims of the fraudster all speak of his tremendous talent for evil.  He was the embodiment and aficionado of the confidence trick, the game that gives money and excitement to the schemer at the expense of his mark.  The victim loses not only money, but also loses confidence, and is robbed of the feeling of well-being.  The loser suffers humiliation, feels debased and often further ashamed, possibly even blamed when the local police try to dissuade the damaged innocent from even filing a police report.  The cops and detectives then go off on every tangent,  sometimes accusing the victim rather than taking on the challenging task of going after the crafty, crooked fox himself.  #DrewChristianDonovan #ChristianAndrews #JimmyWayneJackson

After bilking innocents by falsely promising free real estate, he’s now in jail. This story was just received from another of his hundreds of victims — Trina is one of several who would fight back:


I met Christian Donovan December 2016, through a friend, she had told me for a weeks this man was from a wealthy family and that he was dying of cancer. She said he was hiding from his wealthy family because they wanted to serve him conservator papers.

She said he had a trust, called Donovan dynasty trust. He was trying to get rid of the money so his family could not take it and he was trying to do it so he can run away to Germany, for cancer treatments and to be with a longtime friend. His family are owners of Donovan group llc, and his father was a wealthy lawyer in Beverly Hills.

He said his name was Christian Andrew Donovan, born and raised in Beverly Hills. DOB 11/21/1968. He was going to wire 2.1 million to her and buy her sister a home, under the company name family greens. He even went as far as looking as houses and placing a bid and allowing the home to go through escrow, when the funds didn’t show up to allow the escrow to complete, he came up with a story that it was the realtors fault and he would just cut a check. The realtor kept calling and finally gave up and told my fiend they couldn’t get the house. He even asked if my wife could supply an invoice for a pool, from her company, he was going to use it to justify why he needed extra money from his trust. He took my friend to a few banks and everyone seem to know drew and he played it well, so she was some what convinced he was real. But certain things he did and said didn’t add up. So she called me to help her. To see if what she was seeing and hearing from him was real. she spent about a month to two months with him. even letting him sleep in her home. her brother in law even baby sat him, in return two cars. which i attached the fake transfer of those vehicles. which we never saw. according to him they were in storage. he even had a car impounded with is belongings in it, we believe it was rental and not even his. 

I met with him and he told me his same story. I googled him and couldn’t find any information on him. 

That weekend my friend asked if I would get a room for them under my name, it would be a deposit and his assistant would make the payment, and that he would wire me money from his trust. This was December 30th till Jan 1 2017 in orange county, CA.  He even offered to gift me by paying my monthly bills. Which he did and they all came back as unpaid. As we sat with him that entire weekend. We snooped through his belongings because we were skeptical about him. My friend I became so suspicious we didn’t want to leave him alone or alone with each other, we wanted to watch him and see if we could find anything out about him. as we sat with him we kept him talking and telling us stories of his life, we googled all of it i even found a person on craigslist who was trying to warn people about him, i emailed this person and was getting information about drew. Which increased our suspicions. When the payments he pretended to make to my landlord for rent came back denied, he stated he would cut me a check.

It was New Year’s Eve 2016, he asked that we leave the room for a few hours because his assistant Melissa Ramsey was coming over to bring him a check for us. He asked us to leave the room and come back an hour later, so we sat in the parking lot and continue to texted him, asking if he wanted food and how long till she arrived. In reality we were in the parking lot watching the hotel entrance. When he texted us to say she was almost there, i hid in the stair well to the floor of the room, i had full view of the room door. My friend stayed in the car texting me and him. he had texted my friend that his assistant had arrived and she was on her way up the elevator, i watched that door for 3 hours and not once did anyone show up or leave. He even texted that his assistant had just left and he was walking her out. Again no one entered or left. When we got back to the room we smelled perfume and a check was on the desk. When he got in the shower we found the stack of blank checks and the bottle of perfume. He would have full conversations on the phone and we would hear a voice on the other end, so it made us wonder if he had an accomplice. 

Come to find out he is a con artist, whose name is Jimmy Jackson from Michigan.

He has done federal time in 2009. He changed his name to Christian Donovan. He has been scamming people for years. He is a master manipulator, he’s convincing. He goes to urgent cares to obtain pills that he says he must take because of the pain from the cancer. We found an ex-boyfriend online. His father died of cancers and had leukemia. A story we think Christian Donovan adopted

I left my friend with him because my wife was really upset so I went home, when drew feel asleep my friend took his computer and cell phones (which she bought) and left. He then called me to tell me he didn’t understand why she took them this was 1 am. By this time i had already checked my bank statement. And saw that the hotel charged my card. He told me it was only a deposit and i would be returned that his assistance Melissa was paying for the room and he would take care of it. i already knew by then he was lying. i called the front office and explained he was a con man and I wanted him evicted. i then called the cops and made a report over the phone. When I called the hotel back they stated the manger when to his room to get a new card to put on file and he told him he would bring it down. When they went back to his room and made him go to the lobby they deactivated his room key till he updated his payment method. i told them the cops were in route, they had also called the cops to come and by the time they arrived he was long gone. All his belongings locked in the room. 

We hadn’t heard from him in a few weeks then he re-appeared with my friend’s sister. She hid him in LA then brought him back to Moreno valley. we followed her to a hotel but we could not locate him. The last we hear he was back in LA.  i have reached out to different victims that i found in his contacts and they all share the same story. they have all lost 

He creates fake companies and convinces people to invest. He takes lines of credits out then takes all the money. i reached out to the FBI LA sheriff, Orange county Sherriff, and no one was able to help or willing to hear me out. After a few months I finally gave up. He was gone and no longer in my life, my friend’s life and i was able to salvage what he burned me on. i lost out on $1000.00 dollars due to late fees and hotel charges, it doesn’t ad up to the emotional stress it put on myself and my family.  Luckily i got out before he could take me for all i got, i was one the lucky ones, i heard from people who are still trying to recover. My friend is still trying to recover as well as her sister. i pray they can build a strong enough case to keep him behind bars. Because if we is released he will go back to doing what he does best, being a con man.

It takes great power to defeat the relentless, cutthroat liar.  The power that finally stopped the monster came from the readers of the L.A. Loft Blog.  Stepping foot into Sky Lofts was his biggest mistake, as loft lovers are not easily pushed over!

Are the members of this website among the most powerful people on earth?   Yes, it has proven to be true.  A magnet to movers and shakers, Downtown Los Angeles and the Loft Blog have attracted many great artists, captains of industry, numerous Grammy and Academy Award winners and the like.  When the readers of this blog recently put the super-skilled rip-off artist behind bars by providing massive evidence and then calling the San Diego Police, it noted the clincher of how responsible, compassionate and strategic loft-lovers, Downtown dwellers and real estate enthusiasts truly have proven to be.  Thank You to my fantastically powerful friends!!!!!
