Try to stay cool out there today; the high temp is anticipated to be 106 degrees!

I grew up in Chicago in the late 60's early 70's, where hot summer days were usually accompanied by high humidity.  One of my fondest memories is of my friends and I walking a block down to the ice factory, where giant slabs of ice were created in blocks that (in my memory) were about 1 foot thick, by 4 feet in length, by 3 feet in width...huge.  We'd wander into the factory and pick up the large ice chips that had broken off the large slabs - now being carted away on a conveyor belt.  Then, we'd walk out to the bridge that spanned the Chicago river and sit with our legs dangling over the edge, eating ice chips.

There are so many things wrong with that, things that wouldn't pass muster these days:  Kids wandering into a factory (where we were actually welcomed by the workers), eating ice chips off a dirty conveyor belt, sitting on the edge of the bridge, and finally chewing ice for 2 hours (I can hear the dentists cringing).  Ah, simpler times...


The bridge as it looks today (it was rebuilt in the 80's).  The ice factory is no longer there; it was previously located on the
right side of the bridge.

In the 11 years we've lived in Ojai, we've always driven to LAX in order to catch a flight or to pick up friends and family.  Creatures of habit, I guess.  This morning we drove one of our clients to the Burbank airport to catch a flight.  Wow, that was way easier (and much less frenetic).  As a little side benefit we got two of these...complete with hand - drawn labeling.  Thank you, Josefina!




Just FYI, LAX via 101/405 from Ojai is 83 miles.  Burbank (Bob Hope Airport) is only 69 miles from Ojai, via 126 to the 5 Freeway.  Although you end up driving through a few small towns, the trip took less time and again, was much less hectic.  When possible it will be our airport of choice from here on out.

It was also a bit of crazy weekend, as we received four offers on our recent listing at 10465 N. Karen Avenue.  We're headed to our client's home now to present the offers.  Have a wonderful evening!

No changes yet for today but we're heading out to take a look at some new properties; perhaps we'll find a new Best Buy (or Honorable Mention).  If you'd like a sneak preview of our new listing at 10465 N. Karen Avenue, feel free to stop by this morning before 12:00 noon.

"But what's with the balloons" you ask?

Well, today is the five-year anniversary of Best Buys in Ojai!  I remember the night we first published the web site (June 10, 2011 of course).  I had never worked on a website before, so the learning curve was very steep.  That first day, the website consisted of one page - set over a background of the Topa Topa mountains covered in snow.  It was almost impossible to read.  There was nothing on that page other than our contact information and a list of a few properties we liked at the time.  I remember thinking "The phone is going to start ringing any moment."  Ha ha ha!  We soon realized that just like any other form of advertising, nothing happens overnight.

For the next couple of weeks I was constantly tweaking the page - often into the wee hours of morning - because I thought, "Hundreds of people must be following us by now."  I put a page counter at the bottom of the website and soon discovered that we were getting about 10 page visits a day.  Those first few weeks Cheryl and I diligently kept a watch on the counter, seeing it slowly rise.  The first time it hit 100 visits in one day we celebrated.

Since its inception, BBIO (as we call it) has been visited over a million times from places all around the globe.  We often wonder what people from Sydney, Australia to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia are looking at when they land on our page.  Are they thinking of moving to Ojai?  Are they going to give us a call to let us know they're in town and want to see property?  Are they searching for Best Babes in Ojai but accidentally landing on our page?

The common thread of all the people we have worked with who've found us through BBIO is that they have all been wonderful - equipped with a sense of humor yet very serious about their real estate goals.  We consider ourselves very fortunate to be able to work with such great people and personalities.

Thank you so much for following BBIO.  Here's to another five years!

Don't forget to check out today's open houses.  We're having our listing at 702 Libby Avenue open from 12:00 to 3:00, so come on by and say hello.  This is a super cute home (with legal guest cottage) that's only .8 miles from the center of town, which makes it walkable by most.

Changes to the All Listings page:

~ 506 Pleasant Avenue - this Honorable Mention is now a pending sale.
~ 4522 Grand Avenue - the listing has expired.

In case you didn't know, Paul Simon is playing tonight at the Santa Barbara bowl.  We've never seen him, so we are headed out there for our first glimpse of the legend.  Speaking of concerts, there are some big name acts headed our way this summer, including Rick Springfield, Steppenwolf, and The Zombies.  There's nothing better than a summer evening concert in Libbey Bowl!

Have a great Sunday...

There are two new listings on the market:

~ $479,000 - 131 Larmier Avenue.
~ $849,000 - 1420 Loma Drive.

Changes to the All Listings page:

~ 295 Encino Drive - sale pending.
~ 267 Sunset Avenue - sale pending.
~ 11841 Sulphur Mountain Road - the listing has expired.
~ 901 Park Road - sold for $439,900 (was originally listed for $439,000).
~ 702 Libby Avenue - back on the market (had been a pending sale).  This our own listing:  It's a great home that features a remodeled master bedroom and two bathrooms.  The detached guest house is fully legal, great for extended guest stays or for a long term rental.  (Just FYI, the agent's clients on the other side of the deal backed out of the sale because they changed their minds - wife loved it, husband wanted to look for something else - and it became a point of contention between them.)

It's the first of the month; that means we'll have the monthly Ojai Market Data update for you later today!
