Happy New Year!
Cheers to 2023! A new year is full of possibilities & hope. Wishing you a great start to 2023, with an abundance of good health, happiness and well-being all year long.
As we enter this new year, our local real estate marketplace brings new challenges and opportunities for both Buyers and Sellers. I’ve personally seen a few cycles over my career and can speak with 30+ years of experience. As this is my world and I love what I do, I am always available to chat and share. So please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you ever want to discuss how this might impact your life or just to catch up on the whims of the marketplace. As always, I hope to be your source for all things “real estate” long before you need one.
I hope you’ll enjoy the following seasonal tips and
lifestyle trends to kick off 2023.
With Gratitude, Nili

Local Happenings

Lunar New Year at Disney California Adventure

January 20 – February 15

“What better spot to mark the Lunar New Year than “the happiest place on earth”? Disney California Adventure commemorates the Year of the Rabbit with a month of multicultural celebrations. Kids can look forward to photo ops and parade processions with Mulan, Mushu, Raya, Tigger and Mickey and Minnie Mouse, while adults will find a tasty reprieve with treats from China, Korea and Vietnam—available both à la carte and with a six-item “Sip and Savor Pass.” Stick around into the evening for a Lunar New Year-themed prelude to “World of Color.” Tickets.

Enchanted Forest of Light

Through January 8

“Descanso Gardens’ light-up experience ditches the kitsch aesthetic typical at many venues in favor of a whimsical, wondrous, curiosity-driven display that’s among L.A.’s most stunning and, more importantly, most fun. The interactive, nighttime program sets up illuminated installations around the botanical garden grounds, from luminescent forests to free-standing hands-on art pieces.” Tickets.

Uncorked Wine Festival

Saturday January 28

“More than 150 wines plus wineries, food trucks, music and a beautiful setting—sounds like a perfect Saturday to us. Uncorked Wine Fest returns to Union Station, sending wine fiends into a frenzy with some incredible varietals. General admission will be able to sip from 6 to 9pm, while VIP gets an extra hour to imbibe starting at 5pm. Tickets include all beverage tastings, with food sold separately.” Tickets.
