All this information can be shared with your clients letting them know that you are 'invested' and 'knowledgeable' of the culture, the history and the special interests of the Peninsula's residence.
      • After the morning tours, we will return to the Association where lunch will be served while interesting and informative presentations are given. Topics such as Geology, Architecture, Septic Tanks, PV School District, Palos Verdes Land Conservancy, lending information on creative financing, etc. and local REALTOR® protocols and issues will be presented and how they all relate to the Peninsula.
