For anyone who has lived in Newport Beach for sometime you probably had a few memories of Villa Nova on the water. Last year the property was sold and the Winery started a massive renovation. Tonight The Winery will start some new traditions in Newport Beach. Opening tonight they will have six sommeliers in a brand new 10,000 square foot restaurant on one of the best locations in Newport Harbor. There is even an outdoor deck on the 2nd floor with fireplaces to allow for year-round dining. You will find a 2 story 6000 bottle glass wine cellar along with two bars and panoramic harbor views from every table. Come by car or boat as there are three docks available for customers. For more information on The Winery view their dinner menu or bar menu or just check out the website.
I didn't know any realtors servicing Orange County, so I viewed several of them online. David Feldberg of Coastal Real estate was the only realtor who contacted me the same day. I have always been skeptical, so I told him I would "think about" listing with him. After conducting thorough research, I realized the aggressive approach he described (via telephone) would be the best way to sell my house. Two days later, I called David back, and he met me at the house. He put my family at ease by describing his process and fully addressing our questions. He had the professional photographer on scene a few days later, and my house was listed before I could blink. Thereafter, I could not find a single website featuring local properties that did not include my listing. I am the type of person who takes a "hands on" approach, so I expected to be pushing my realtor every step of the way. I texted and called David with questions at least 30 times while the house was listed. The longest time I waited for his response was 7 (SEVEN) minutes. The vast majority of his responses were IMMEDIATE. David was always several steps ahead of me, so I learned to let him take the reigns. My property may have been difficult for mainstream realtors to sell because there were no similar properties sold in the area. David overcame this potential obstacle by holding an open house ALL THREE WEEKENDS that passed before a reasonable offer was made. That's right,... my house was sold within a month, and closed 30 days later. This was the fourth property I have sold over many years. The first three experiences were riddled with problems and delays. The undisputable difference between those experiences and this one was that DAVID TREATED THE SALE OF MY HOUSE AS IF IT WERE HIS OWN.
