    Everything You Need to Know About Real Estate - What do I disclose when I sell my house?

    Everything You Need to Know About Real Estate - What do I disclose when I sell my house?

    This is a common question I get from sellers on a daily basis.  The quick answer is to disclose anything and everything that you would want to know if you were the buyer.  If this does not resonate with you, then how about disclosing all current issues, and all past issues that have been repaired.  When you disclose everything you have no disclosure liability after you sell your home.  
     
    The big ticket items that often end up causing law suits are moisture intrusion issues such as past leaks, floods, other water related issues and mold remediations.  Many seller are misinformed and think that if they have repaired a roof leak or remediated mold in the past they do not need to disclose it.  They are dead wrong!  Of course, there are many other issues that need to be disclosed like robberies, non permitted remodels, noise nuisances like a dog that barks for hours at time to name a few.   In this litigious world we live in, I always advise my sellers to over disclose so that they do not get caught in a law suit down the road.

    #037 - Jon Orlando - Gambling with Michael Jordan and more Wild Stories on The Action Junkeez Podcast

    Jon Orlando is the creator and host of the Action Junkeez podcast and Vegas Junkeez podcast based out of Las Vegas.  He is also Hollywood royalty and the son of Tony Orlando.  Growing up in Los Angeles, Jon, like many of us, was all about playing baseball and watching the Dodgers win under Tommy Lasorda.  
     
    His career started as a young stand-up comedian where he opened up for his father and other legends such as Paul Anka, Tom Jones, The Temptations and Dionne Warwick.  After years on the road, Jon’s entrepreneurial spirit led him in a new direction.  He started working as a publicist for professional athletes and models and eventually launched his own PR-marketing boutique.  Through the years, Jon O has had various consulting and marketing roles for entertainment/news media start-ups and his career has come full circle with the launch of his podcast focusing on UFC/MMA fighting, boxing, poker and all action sports.  Michael Bisping, Bruce Buffer, Laci Kay Somers and Russell Peters are just a few of his recent guests.  Action Junkeez will be doing a 24-hour podcast, March 5th at 8pm to March 6 at 8pm, which will be live on Facebook. 
     
    Jon O has been hustling and grinding in front of and behind the camera for over 25 years.  He has had doors opened and shut and continues to push his business forward.  This is a great story of the relentless pursuit of success and pivoting when the opportunities arise.  Being self aware and understanding your strengths is another critical lesson we learn in this episode.

    #035 - Stryker - What it Takes to Become a Successful Radio DJ and Pop Culture Influencer

    #035 - Stryker - What it Takes to Become a Successful Radio DJ and Pop Culture Influencer

    Stryker and I grew up together playing baseball at West L.A. little league and then played against each other at rival high schools (me at University vs. he at Palisades).  When I was in the music industry, we spent a lot of time together going to shows, festivals and recording studios.
    In the late 90’s, Stryker turned the alternative rock genre on its head and influenced a massive shift in music and popular culture forever.  The new era, which I call the “Coachella effect” or the fusion of all genres of music and the disintegration of boundaries between musical artists was upon us.  Alternative rock music evolved and expanded to envelop hip hop, electronica, punk, heavy metal, ska, reggae and rock in a seamless, undefinable genre.  This new, complex era of youth culture needed a dynamic ambassador and Stryker was a natural fit.  
    20 years and dozens of music festivals later, Stryker is still a vital voice in alternative music and pop culture.  He has done several TV shows including Loveline with Dr. Drew, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Audience on DirecTV and still hosts the daily Stryker and Klein show on KROQ 106.7 everyday from 3pm-7pm.

    #034 - A real estate agent can't work 24/7 and be effective

    It’s important to take time off to recharge and clear your mind... 
    We work in a 24-7 world and if we do not take time off of the grind we will inevitably burn out.  To optimize your performance take a step back, rest your body and mind, spend some quality time with your family and friends, explore new places, have fun, and  know your clients and deals will still be there when you get back.  Happy, healthy holidays!
