Judy Kunisaki, Malibu real estate

Buying celebrity real estate in Malibu is easier when pre-qualified.  It is always smarter to be pre-qualified prior to starting the buying process but if you want to have a look inside a celebrity’s home that is listed for sale you can’t just be someone walking in off the streets.  Protecting one’s privacy is essential for anyone living in the spotlight and a celebrity is not about to let just anyone wander through his home.  A Malibu REALTOR® is extremely helpful in the navigation of the market of celebrity homes in the area.

If you are interested in luxury properties in Malibu locate a REALTOR® with a solid reputation.  After you have selected a REALTOR® with whom you feel comfortable and confident you can go through the process of ensuring that you have the credentials to enter a number of homes.  Whether you are securing a loan or paying cash, pre-qualification of your financial means will be addressed.

Contact me, Judy Kunisaki, today for more information on Malibu real estate.  I welcome the opportunity to get you started on your home search while updating you on current market conditions at the same time.  Let my knowledge and experience work to your advantage for all of your Malibu real estate needs.

Malibu Real Estate, Controversial Mansions Looming

real estate in Malibu

Judy Kunisaki, Malibu real estate

A Malibu real estate update shows that controversial mansions that have been in the planning stage for some time are looming closer to approval. The mansions are a proposal by Famous U2 rocker “The Edge”. The PUD involves a number of mansions lining a cliff face that overlooks Malibu, something that has caused quite a stir in the Malibu community over the past few years.

The project designers have made a number of concessions, reducing the original size of the mansions and being more sensitive to environmental concerns. While it appears that there is still a way to go before final approval the California Coastal Commission is recommending the projects approval by the commissioners. Suffice it to say that the Malibu real estate project is making progress.

Contact me, Judy Kunisaki, today to learn more about current market conditions and new projects planned for the Malibu area. My knowledge and experience will work to your advantage for all of your Malibu real estate needs.
