Corey Chambers SoCal Home Newsletter February 2018 – Impactful Real Estate News

February, as you know, brings in Valentine’s Day, where many of us scramble to make sure those close to us KNOW we love them! After all – Love is a many splendored thing. While love for our family and friends is the most important, I think it’s also important to express my love for helping people find a home where their heart is.  #chla #coreychambers #news #valentine

My favorite love description is: Love is patient, Love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes and always perseveres.

Valentine Kissing Couple Love

I could go on with all kinds of examples like – Love Your Neighbor as Yourself, even go all business on you with accolades about how much we love doing business with you, or how much we love your referrals and more – but, the point is we do love helping people sell and buy real estate. And those people say we are good at it!

Please know that my team and I are eager to help anyone you know wanting to make a move so much so that we are willing to make an offer that they will LOVE – AND – the Kids at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles will love too.

For the month of February, anyone considering making a move that you refer to me, we will guarantee them in writing their home will sell or we’ll buy it at a price acceptable to them. We just need to agree on the price and possession date with the seller.

Just like we are thankful for you and your business, I am confident your referrals will be thanking you for guiding them in the right direction on getting their home sold!!!

Also included with this month’s newsletter is a story about a very special 11 year-old boy with a 10 year-old heart!

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 overcome 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.

And remember, I want to make it easy for you to refer your friends, neighbors, business associates, or family members considering making a move, so here are some convenient options for you:

IS YOUR GLASS HALF FULL OR HALF EMPTY?

You have probably heard that phrase before. As you know it’s often associated with ‘Positive Thinking’ or lack of it. Is it possible to walk through this life with a positive attitude? Even when things are not going well? You probably know people who do. Would others say that YOU are one of those people?  #coreychambers

Make no mistake about it, there is deep concern on behalf of everyone at our real estate company for the pain, difficulty and struggle many experience as they walk through life. Our belief is that in order to be a positive force for others, Positive Thinking is required. Please allow me to share some of that ‘core value’ with you in this season’s issue of the SoCal Quarterly Newsletter.  #realestate #newsletter

In Dr. Norman Vincent Peale’s classic book, The Power of Positive Thinking, he teaches the cultivation of ‘peace of mind’, not as an escape from the realities of life, but as a ‘power center’ out of which comes driving energy for constructive personal and social living.

It seems every time I cut the news on or look at social media, there seems to be a barrage of negativity. I have to look hard to find the ‘good news’. But as I walk around and live my life in practical terms, I see a great deal of love and positive energy from and among people. I’m not sure of the disconnect, it could be just me and my perceptions. Nonetheless I am reminded of the importance of staying positive as it relates to just about anything. Even in the midst of great tragedy, there is a different way to think.

Positive thinking is really just faith in action. When things are not going well, it is easy to develop a negative attitude. But in my experience, the fastest way to lift myself up when feeling down is to go help someone else who is feeling down. That is really tough to do without positive thinking. We all know how comforting it is when life has dealt us a bad blow a friend or someone we love brings us their positive energy. How else can we be lifted up in times of tragedy or sorrow? Positive Thinking is contagious.

With the practical techniques you will find in Dr. Peale’s book, it is not just possible but very likely to energize one’s life. Another way to describe Positive Thinking is it gives you the initiative needed to attain your ambitions and hopes.

Take a look at people you would say have ‘determination’. Determined people are Positive Thinkers. So we can say that Negative Thinkers lack determination. I’m not sure it is possible to be determined to succeed and not entirely possess Positive Thinking. I’ve never seen successful people who are negative. They are the opposite, they attract – the very definition of Positive.

With positive thinking you will learn how to:

o  Expect the best and get it.
o  Believe in yourself and in everything you do.
o  Develop the power to reach your goals.
o  Break the worry habit and achieve a relaxed life.
o  Improve your personal and professional relationships.
o  Assume control over your circumstances.
o  Be kind to yourself.

It teaches positive thinking not as a means to fame, riches or power, but as the practical application of faith to overcome defeat and accomplish worthwhile creative endeavors in life. It teaches a hard, disciplinary way of life, but one which offers great joy to the person who achieves victory over themselves and the difficult circumstances of the world.

Even the words we speak have a direct and definite affect upon our thoughts. The way we think creates the words we use, and words are the vehicles of ideas. But words also affect our thoughts and help to condition if not to create attitudes. In fact, what often passes for thinking starts with talk.

The man who assumes success tends to already have success.

My hope is that YOU will expect the best and get it.

William James, the famous psychologist said “Our belief at the beginning of a doubtful undertaking is the one thing that insures the successful outcome of the venture”.

One thing that rises above most is our eagerness to get our children involved and hanging out with others who are good, noble, caring, ‘do the right things’ kind of kids. Most parents have an instinct to realize when their kids are hanging out with the wrong crowd. There is little they would not do to get their child of that environment. It is a universal truth that you will become who you hang out with. What amazes me are the adults that won’t apply this same rule to themselves. They engage in damaging behavior in WHO they watch, follow, and hang out with.

My belief is that we were put here to accomplish great things. We are capable of far more than we can imagine. Success starts between our ears: WHAT you think about and HOW you think about things. Oh and my glass? It’s not just half full, it’s running over!Corey

Be Positive!  Live Positive!

P.S. If you or someone you know want more on the subject of positive thinking, consider picking up a copy of Dr. Peale’s classic “The Power of Positive Thinking” or “The Power of Positive Thinking for Young People”

YOUR FRIENDS ARE CRAZY WRONG IF THEY’RE TELLING YOU NOT TO BUY!

The current narrative is that home prices have risen so much that it’s no longer a smart idea to buy a home. Your family and friends might suggest that buying a home right now makes absolutely no sense from an affordability standpoint. They are wrong!

Homes are more affordable right now than at almost any time in our country’s history except for the foreclosure years (2009-2015) when homes sold at major discounts. As an example, below is a graph from the latest Black Knight Mortgage Monitor showing the percentage of median income needed to buy a medium-priced home today compared to before the housing bubble and bust. As you can see, the percentage is less now than in the previous time periods. The Mortgage Monitor also explains that home affordability is better today than it was in the late 1990s in 47 of 50 states.

Your friends and family have your best interests at heart, but, when it comes to buying your first home or selling your current house to buy the home of your dreams, let’s get together to discuss what your best move is, now.

Downtown Los Angeles Welcomes Another New Hyperloop Company

Anything that could help alleviate traffic congestion is always going to be a great addition to Los Angeles.  #arrivo #hyperloop #dtla

Arrivo hyper loop company comes to Downtown Los Angeles
Arrivo new hyper loop company comes to Downtown Los Angeles

New Hyperloop company Arrivo company has set up shop across from the Budweiser building on the Boyle Heights side of the 4th Street Bridge. In the race to develop Hyperloop, Arrivo seems to be focusing on the sleds rather than a vacuum chamber.  The giant skates can carry cars, passengers or freight.  Without the vacuum chamber, the speed might not go quite as fast as Elon Musk’s vision, but the development and construction can proceed faster, cheaper, and possibly safer.  Zooming along at up to 200 per hour will be quite an improvement over the current state of freeways in the area.

Arrivo is bringing 70 to 80 engineers to the area. Several of them are seeking residences in Downtown Los Angeles, including tax-saving historic Mills Act approved lofts in the nearby Arts District, Historic Core and Little Tokyo.

AirBNB is today's King of Real Estate
AirBNB is today’s King of Short Term Rental Real Estate

There’s more money than ever at stake in Downtown Los Angeles housing. The astute observers pay close attention while the movers and shakers benefit from these major changes in the housing market. Compare the number of Google searches of real estate, AirBNB and Zillow:

Homes now sell faster when the buyer’s agent receives less commission.  Yes, the property actually has fewer days on market and a quicker sale transaction when the buyer’s licensed real estate professional is offered less of the shared percentage, while homes are now really selling slower when that commission is higher.  This is one of several indicators that point to the fact that Zillow, Trulia and other major online real estate websites have home search functions that are diminishing the needs for a buyer’s agent. Zillow is blowing away real estate agents.  #airbnb #zillow #realestate

Nobody has really ever been particularly interested in real estate agents. They seem to show up sooner or later as the home buyers or sellers kind of know that they still need one to make sure that all of the buyers see all of the appropriate homes, and agents help negotiate the best price and terms, while helping take care of the massive stack of paperwork that is required in litigation-crazy California.

Just as it is clear the AirBNB is beginning to nibble at the hotel pie (average AirBNB stay is 4 days, compared to average hotel state of 2 days), Zillow is now slurping down huge pools of cash from what was once the grips of buyer’s agents. More than 20% of real estate investors are now seeking properties that can easily be rented out on AirBNB.  Most Downtown condo lofts are not efficient for AirBNB because of strict HOA homeowners rules that do not permit such short rentals.

There are some sectors of real estate that Zillow and Trulia do not compete well.  Those are the ultra-local, specialized markets like Downtown Los Angeles lofts such as historic Mills Act lofts with property tax benefits, L.A. Adaptive Re-Use Ordinance buildings with lofts for lease, 2-story lofts, live/work lofts and industrial buildings.

SAVE $50,000 on a Downtown Los Angeles Loft or Condominium – Real Estate Black Friday Sale

Black Friday Sale on Downtown L.A. Lofts until December 31, 2017

Black Friday Sale Downtown Los Angeles Lofts and Condos
Black Friday Sale Downtown Los Angeles Lofts and Condos

REAL ESTATE NEWS:  The best deals on Downtown LA lofts have always been during the holidays, when the smart, savvy buyers take advantage of the fact that most competing buyers are out of the market and not in the game during the holiday season.  And WOW!!!!  When’s the last time we saw a Black Friday sale with $50,000 off? This is a holiday sale that investors will absolutely love. Those who are considering buying a home in November or December are in the minority because humans are like lower animals in that they make fewer big moves during the winter. For the few who are thinking about moving or investing in a property, the time between Halloween and New Year’s Eve can be the very best time to get a super deal because there are fewer competing buyers.  When an offer is placed on an amazing loft, condominium or house during this time, the offer is more likely to be accepted.  Beginning January 2, everything changes. The inventory only goes up a tiny bit, while the number of buyers explodes in DTLA. For those who wait until after the new year to get started, they will find themselves caught up in an exciting (and expensive) auction effect that drives up prices due to the large number of buyers trying to outbid each other.  #blackfriday #lofts #dtla

$50,000 Home Purchase Savings Guarantee
For those homebuyers who not only want to find the home that perfectly suits their needs and desires… but to also purchase their dream home for the lowest possible price: Accomplish both of these goals; and here’s how it works:

Purchase a home for at least $50,000 less than the listed asking price guaranteed, or get $6,000 cash at the closing of the sale. This guarantee applies to homes over $800,000 going into escrow by Dec 31, 2017.

That’s pretty straightforward isn’t it?

This offer will not last. To get details on how to get the Black Friday $50,000 Home Purchase Savings Guarantee, request more info filling out the online form:

We Got Him! Fraudster Drew Christian Donovan in Jail

Prolific Con-Man Christian Andrews AKA Drew Christian Donovan AKA Jimmy Wayne Jackson Has Been Caught  #dtla #realestate #fraud

donovan-in-jail-j-c-300REAL ESTATE NEWS  (September 11, 2017) Los Angeles, CA  —  Thanks to the smart readers of the L.A. Loft Blog, and due to the quick work of the San Diego Police Department, swindler Drew Donovan has been captured before he can destroy the finances of any more innocent victims.  After wreaking havoc on the financial welfare of anyone whom he could get ahold of, including local families with children, disabled persons, even inflicting malevolent damage to sophisticated real estate industry professionals and homeowners in Los Angeles, the bad guy is finally off the street.

The L.A. Loft Blog first covered in May of 2017 the story about the fake philanthropist then going by the name Christian Andrews, taking several Los Angeles area locals by offering to pay off all of their bills, give them new cars, even million-dollar homes such as Downtown lofts and Solaire luxury high-rise condos in Koreatown. His foray into real estate fraud is what brought him down, as he tangled with the wrong group of savvy people. With powerful communication and hard work, the LA Loft Blog and its readers have toppled LA’s dangerous money menace.

The LA Loft Blog first became aware of the charlatan when he contacted our office requesting assistance with a Downtown loft purchase.  After receiving fake proof of funds, fake earnest money deposit initiation receipts and other phony financial instruments, the L.A. Loft Blog learned that the trickster has defrauded more than 100 individuals, families, mothers, children, elderly, disabled out of more than $1,000,000 in the Greater L.A. Area (see the original story).

Arrested  —  Going by the fake name Christian Andrews, and carrying a California driver license that says Drew Christian Donovan, the supremely skilled deceiver has this week been outwitted by the caring community of L.A. Loft Blog readers and writers. When the scammer tried to lure them into one of his “free real estate” traps, real estate agent Norma Fernandez and her quick-witted client Joshua Alvarez checked the L.A. Loft Blog, which confirmed their suspicions. They wasted no time calling police.  San Diego Police Department responded quickly, checked diligently, and then took cheater Donovan into custody on existing felony warrants for violating his probation and writing big, bad checks.

To help keep this menace locked away for a long time, those with any information may share it with police and with the L.A. Loft Blog at report@laloftblog.com or call (213) 880-9910.

Meet Jimmy Wayne Jackson, Con Man Taking Millions from Michigan to California

Professional Con-Artist Jimmy Wayne Jackson AKA Drew Christian Donovan AKA Christian Andrews Deceives from Small Town to Downtown

REAL ESTATE NEWS  (September 4, 2017) Los Angeles, CA  —  The L.A. Loft Blog reported in May of 2017 about pretend rich guy Christian Andrews conning many Los Angeles area locals by offering to pay their bills, give them cars, even million-dollar real estate such as Downtown lofts and Solaire luxury high-rise condominiums in Koreatown. The skilled liar with many names promises to help those who are deserving with millions out of his trust fund if they help him avoid his interfering parents. The truth is that the con-man’s parents are dead, and he is really only avoiding his earlier angry victims while spryly hurdling the slow wheels of justice as he cheats his way from small town to Greater Los Angeles.

By gaining sympathy over his made-up terminal cancer, and his bogus story that he wants to help those who are deserving, Jimmy Wayne skillfully leads caring individuals into the void, all but rendering victims into human ATM machines, mindless sex zombies or drug-fetching robots to give him their money, meds, identities and even more sinister. The preying monster seems to have something insidious in store for just about anyone whom he can catch in his finely crafted web.  #jimmywaynejackson #drewdonovan #christianandrews #fraud

The LA Loft Blog first became aware of the swindler when he contacted our office asking for help with a Downtown loft purchase.  After observing fake proof of funds, fake earnest money deposit initiation receipts and other fake instruments, the L.A. Loft Blog has learned that the perpetrator has defrauded more than 100 individuals, families, mothers, children, elderly, disabled out of more than $1,000,000 in the Greater Los Angeles Area (see the original story).

The Latest  —  Going by the fake name Christian Andrews, and carrying a California driver license that says Drew Christian Donovan, the supremely skilled deceiver has this week been outed as Holland, Michigan native Jimmy Wayne Jackson, long-time fraudster on a  mega-extended super-spree of illegal deception using fake checks, sham real estate transactions, phony bank wire transfers, other people’s credit cards and stolen identities.

We have just been contacted by an old-family friend who informed us of the flimflam man’s true origin. He’s been at it a long, long time. Hometown victim Carol reports that she knew him a long time ago when he was 10-year-old Jimmy Wayne Jackson of Holland, MI, from a dysfunctional family living at a mobile home park. Years later, Carol would lose touch as Jimmy turned into an 18 year old college DJ in Grand Rapids and then a DJ in Florida. About 9 years ago in back in Holland, MI, the young fraudster’s mom had passed away, and Jimmy never new his birth father. Carol and Jimmy grew close, so she thought. But the friendship was mere trickery. Carol reports that Jimmy came back to his home town, claimed he came into lots of money, and wanted to give it to deserving people. He defrauded Carol and several of the local townspeople, causing tens of thousands in damages to Carol alone. Years later, Jimmy did it again, ripped his old friends off a third time, making yet another astonishing round to take advantage of the folks who cared for him the most by claiming that he had come back to make amends. For those who were religious, Jimmy would not hesitate to use God’s name to lie, and take advantage of their faith to bilk and milk them for every penny. Carol said that two more home-town victims called her within the last year to report Jimmy’s latest thievery by false pretenses. His total estimated take is now more than $2 million.

Recovered evidence shows a pattern of fraud motivated by addictions

While his mugshot captures a glimpse of his true character, the perpetrator has not paid for his career of crime. He has told some that he served time, but this super-slippery and talented weasel has even been able to con “friends” into bailing him out, as his supreme charlatan skills have allowed him to evade the law virtually 100%.  He uses advanced real estate knowledge and banking know-how to trick old friends — even to outwit sophisticated business persons. The man with many names is at large and actively taking from innocent individuals and families. His motives are too torrid and depraved to detail on a real estate blog, but evidence suggests that the bad guy’s impetus may involve something weird like Ambien sex addiction, the sad combination that took down golf-great Tiger Woods. All victims are encouraged to immediately contact law enforcement and also to contact the L.A. Loft Blog with further information. The sooner we can get this crafty parasite back into an orange jumpsuit and iron bars, the safer America will be.

Additional victims have created another page with more information that might help to apprehend and stop the fraudster, also to try to protect families from the ongoing campaign of financial devastation by Drew Donovan aka Christian Andrews aka Jimmy Wayne Jackson.
