Yesterday afternoon while enjoying some time on the water with some friends we were surprised to see a glimpse of the largest yacht most of us had ever seen. At 6 PM last night The Invictus arrived into Newport Harbor. This is the largest boat ever to cruise the waterways of Newport Harbor. It stands 5 stories tall and is over 216 ft long (or the size of a 20 story building).
This newly completed boat has been in the news for the last couple of months as it was coming to Newport Beach for its christening. This yacht is owned by real estate developer and billionaire Rick Caruso.
I have been out on the waters here in Newport Harbor for the last 20 years and always love looking at the big yachts. I have to tell you this dwarfs everything else in the harbor. It is truly amazing. It will be moored on the west side of Lido for a couple of months and it is a must see. We will be taking our duffy out again this weekend to go get a closer look and will snap some photos and add them to this blog soon.
Unlike most buyers or sellers, who have to compare their Realtor in a vacuum, we hired David to sell our home after firing a bad Realtor. Since a picture is worth 1,000 words I've uploaded the difference in photography between the two - the two pics I uploaded show the night and day difference between the way a good Realtor represents your property and how a bad one does. (The bad Realtor just showed up with a crappy camera, while the first thing David did was pay for a professional photographer to take pictures of the house and made slick flyers). Good pictures is just one example of the service David provided. He worked his ass off to sell our home, holding open houses every other week until we got multiple offers. Also important, David gave us good advice consistently through the process but always let it be our decision. After the experience of dealing with a shady incompetent Realtor, I can't recommend David enough for being the exact opposite. If you need to buy or sell a home David and Coastal Real Estate Group should be your first choice. Rob M
