You don't know what you are talking about, and I am not a real estate sales person.
I live here on San Pedro and have for the last 8 years, and have a successful business. So far this has been the best year for real estate sales since 2007. Many expensive homes, in addition to condos, have been sold. As far as good agents, there are a number of them.
This Chat Board is full of people who add their comments, and don't have a clue about what they are saying.....sad.
