As a resident of Pacific Palisades and an active broker for over 30 years, I frequently hear parroted the slogan “If you’re famous, you live in Beverly Hills; if you’re rich, you live in Brentwood and if you’re lucky, you live in Pacific Palisades”. More than thirty years later, the only change I’ve noted is that you can be rich (or not), famous (or not) and still feel lucky to live in Pacific Palisades! And while Pacific Palisades is my home base, I can help you anywhere on the Westside. I welcome you to ellenmccormick.com and trust that it will help you learn more about my listings. Please also use it to navigate your search for a home through the MLS if none of my listings are a fit for you. And if you are considering selling your home, I invite you to review the many resources that I avail myself of in order to best promote my clients’ properties.
There are a number of features that I encourage you to employ. In addition to showcasing my listing inventory and recent sales, please explore the BHHS app; it is downloadable to your mobile device and gives you up to date information about the homes for sale in your area. And you can search for available listings based upon your specific criteria through the local Multiple Listing Service for your area; just click on the MLS Home Search button on the main page.
I’m sure you’ve heard that moving is one of the most stressful experiences in one’s life… Indeed, as life challenges go, it is right up there with death of a loved one, relationship estrangement and financial hardship. Years ago, I invited some dear friends over for dinner. They had just bought a house and I knew that a home cooked meal would be a welcome respite from the daunting task of unpacking. They walked through the door and looked at me in disbelief, saying “Your job is to make people go through this?! How can you live with yourself?!” Well, I did not represent them in their purchase and I would like to think that if I had, their experience may have been better! Moving is stressful but part of my job is to make sure that I help to minimize the trauma. If you are leaving your home of 35 years or moving into your very first home, I will work with you to make it a good experience.
I hope you put me to the test.
