Christmas Tree Lighting in the Lake Arrowhead Village

We are inching closer to Christmas and on Friday November 28, 2014 the Lake Arrowhead Village will have their annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony!

You can find the Christmas Tree directly behind Center Stage on the grassy area, the lights will be turned on at 6pm.  So bring the kids, bring the Hot Coco (Peppermint Snaps optional) and remember to dress warm!

Santa will also be making an appearance and you can even grab a picture with him from 6:30 to 9pm.  The only other thing that could make this Friday evening a great memory is a little snow to get us all in the Holiday Spirit!

See you all there!

Pictures Are Worth a Thousand Wor… DOLLARS

My team mate Michelle Hutton just got a new listing in Crestline… A: The property is awesome, a mountain gem with good bones and is super clean.  B: The price is right C:  The area is quiet and the house sits in the trees! AND D: The pictures are worth thousands of dollars ;-)

This listing was listed with another agent for the past year and did not sell.  Now that Michelle H. has the listing here is the change already.  Here is an example of the service you will get when you list with myself or one of my team mates.  Arrowhead Professional Partners does it right the first time and every time!

Which would you choose to represent your home?  HOME LISTED FOR $172,000 (Oh and these pictures were taken by yours truly, me… Just another service I offer to my clients and my team)!

Renaissance Holiday Evening | UCLA Conference Center

SAVE THE DATE for Thursday December 4, 2014.  UCLA Conference Center is hosting a fundraiser for The Rim of the World Historical Society.  This event starts at 5:30 and is $65 per person.

Here is a little blurb about who the Historical Society is and what they do for the community!

The Rim of the World Historical Society.

Founded in 1986, the Historical Society was conceived as part of an “election platform” in Crestline’s annual race for Honorary Mayor. Originally known as the Crest Forest Historical Society, the group soon found itself representing all west-end mountain communities from Snow Valley to Cedarpines Park.

In 1997, the name was changed to the Rim of the World Historical Society. The Historical Society serves as a resource for all those interested in the history of the San Bernardino Mountains. School programs and lecture series are available free to the public.
