An Eagle Rock native with over a decade's experience in the real estate industry, Keely Myres is the team’s go-to-person when it comes to overseeing all the details of a transaction, whether that means getting a house ready and launched on the market or helping buyers plan their purchase. When she's not making sure all the I's are dotted and the T's are crossed, Keely enjoys hiking with her rescue pup, checking out the nearest tiki bar, and listening to live music (especially if there's a horn section involved).

Eagle Rock Small Business Saturday

Eagle Rock Small Business Saturday

Eagle Rock real estate isn't the only hot happening in the area!

Eagle Rock businesses really stepped out for We Heart Eagle Rock Shop Small the last Saturday of November. There were 38 businesses on the map, all located along our main two commercial streets, Eagle Rock and Colorado Boulevards. Most of these businesses are "Mom and Pop," privately owned shops by people who live right here in Northeast Los Angeles.  I visited a few, mostly the new businesses that I hadn't seen before. I was so impressed by the individuality and quality of the shops we are so lucky to have in our community. I started my Christmas shopping today in earnest and found gifts that I wouldn't have thought of if I were just shopping on the Internet--not that you couldn't shop in most of these stores online, but it's so much more inspiring to see items in person.

A Charming Cottage in the Hills of Highland Park

A Charming Cottage in the Hills of Highland Park

Living in the city, we dream of the country life--the quiet, space, privacy. At the same time we are spoiled by the convenience of nearby shops and restaurants.

Here in this sweet 1922 cottage, you are less than a 10 minute drive to the Eagle Rock Trader Joe's, 6 minutes from the heart of the York Blvd. scene, and only a mile from Fusion Burger and El Super. Highland Park real estate is booming and the availability of ideal homes such as this is the reason!

Who says we can't have it all? This is a small, charming cottage with wood floors, 2 small bedrooms, a living room and a spacious kitchen, a front porch big enough to sit on with your morning coffee--but the basement offers an additional space for a workshop, a "person" cave, whatever you need.

What is Influencing the Real Estate Market today?

What is Influencing the Real Estate Market today?

Many clients ask us why Northeast Los Angeles real estate has become such a hot commodity. Good question!

There are a few factors that influence the real estate market in general:

  1. Mortgage interest rates

  2. Employment statistics

  3. General economic trends

  4. Buyer/Seller expectations

Mortgage Interest Rates: We have experienced historically low interest rates for several years now, and although we have seen some movement up and down, nothing seems to indicate that the dread interest rate of 5% is likely to happen soon. Frequent readers are probably tired of me harking back to the early 1980s when interest rates were 14%.
