Healthy in Hermosa

My wife and I love going out to eat, and we also do our best to follow a pretty clean, healthful diet. Depending on where you live, these two passions could potentially be in conflict. One thing we love about Hermosa Beach is the number of healthy options available to us on any given weekend of dining out. Granted, you can probably drive your server crazy at any restaurant tailoring any dish to your own dietary restrictions, but thankfully we don’t need to do that very often in Hermosa!

Short Sales and REO’s…where did they go?

Are short sales and bank owned REO’s still available? How do they affect our market here in Hermosa?

HISTORY OF REDONDO BEACH

Throughout the 1800’s, Redondo Beach gained popularity as a seaside playground for vacationing “inlanders” and tourists. Hotel Redondo, built in 1889, boasted 225 sun-drenched rooms, tennis courts, an 18-hole golf course, and a grand ballroom for posh dinners and special events. A huge 34,000 square foot pavilion built in 1907 by Henry Huntington stood 150 feet from the shoreline near today’s Pier.
