Hello Community!

I sincerely hope you and your family are staying safe, being productive, and enjoying time together. You may not recognize me: I am the former publisher of the Community Beacon newspaper between 2013-2017.

It was such a rewarding experience to work with George Cabrera and members of the community to publish a free bilingual (sometimes trilingual) newspaper distributed in hundreds of local businesses and thousands of homes. Our goal was to provide a voice for local community members, and my unstated goal was to follow the wise saying: “Comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.” (Finley Peter Dunne) I am so glad that Mike is taking the time and dedication to publish the Lincoln Star! Since giving up the Beacon, I completed a dissertation and doctorate degree as Cal State LA, and spent more quality time with my wife and daughters. About 6-7 days a week,

I coached their sports teams (mostly basketball, sometimes soccer) at various recreation centers and weekend club tournaments and shoot outs. And when I was not coaching, I was an avid supporter at all their games. Now that they play basketball at Wilson High School and soccer with the Downtown LA Soccer Club, I retired from coaching. With the extra time,

I renewed my real estate broker’s license, and I want to make my services available to you. I would love the opportunity to work with you when the time comes (in 1,2,5,10, or 15 years).


A) As an INDEPENDENT BROKER, I save my clients a lot of money, as I no longer pay (or charge) the extra fees that realtors at franchises have to pay. When I worked at Century-21 many years ago, when I sold a home I had to pay the following fees on each home I sold:

 1) the supervising broker 2)

 2 company owners,

3) office manager,

 4) transaction coordinator,

 5) administration fee,

 6) pre-paid legal,

 7) Century 21 franchise fee Now, I no longer pay for (or charge clients for) any of those fees, so I can pass along those savings to my clients.

B) I am also able to give my clients access to OFF-MARKET PROPERTIES in their desired area, before the properties come onto the market. When you tell me where you want to buy your dream home, I am willing to invest up to $2,000 my own money to find home sellers in your desired area, and facilitate a PRIVATE SALE, before the home is available to the rest of the universe,

It’s possible that water left sitting for long periods of time could contain excessive amounts of heavy metals and pathogens concentrated in pipes nationwide, say researchers who have begun a field study on the impact of a pandemic shutdown on buildings. Stagnant water wouldn’t only be a problem for recently closed-down buildings. Water could have been bad for months or years in old hospital buildings that cities are reopening to accommodate a potential influx of COVID-19 patients.
