Dear Smobayed,

Yes it is possible to hire a full time nanny live-out. And it is possible to hire a live-in nanny.

I have included a few websites for your review that let you know the rules and pay for a live-in nanny and if you'd like recommendations to point you in the right direction I would be glad to help.

Thank you,
Sarah Shahrazad Masri

Hi Herro,

There are quite a few homes in irvine that are available. Irvine has the best schools in all of California
Do you have any pets? This I would need to know as well

Want to put you in the best light especially when there is more than one person applying for the same home
I do work in irvine and have gotten many people a place to lease. I have been doing this for over 25 years

Talk to you soon

Bill Eckler answered:
People working with multiple agents is a very common event and probably best justified when the buyer is covering a broad area that may not include locations that an agent is familiar with.

However, when buyers are playing games and don't have the integrity to be up front and share this information with an explanation.....well, they simply lose my attention. If your time is too valuable to serve as a back up agent a parting of the ways may be in order.

The one that you have equity on. Irvine has had better appreciation than Marina Del Ray. If I were you and if you had equity in both condos, I would sell them both and get a 2 bedroom or even more. Now is the time, you should take advantage of low interest rates. It makes a huge difference to get a mortgage at lower interest rates even one percent makes a huge difference.
If you need more information, please give me a call, I am local agent in Irvine.

Hi Paula,

I moved to Irvine from the east coast 11 years ago. My ex got transferred to Brea in north OC and when we came to look for houses, I was particularly interested in south OC. After a test commute, however, we realized that it would be too far for him to drive to Brea each day from south OC. So, we bought in Irvine. At first I was put off by the cookie-cutter aesthetic here after living in the east but over time the community grew on me. Last year I sold our house in Irvine and considered once again moving down to south OC (my elderly folks live in Leisure World in Laguna Woods), however, after looking at houses several times down there, I realized it is pretty far from most things I do. The 5 gets really congested past Lake Forest going south. Irvine is so easy to get around from - anywhere in OC is within a half an hour. LA is also convenient as is Riverside. When I travel I can get to John Wayne within 10 minutes and Long Beach within 20. Another factor I considered when looking at south OC was how real estate fared during the run up and run down of values. Irvine held its value much better. I decided to re-invest in Irvine given the uncertaintly going forward I know my investment will fare better here than down south. Irvine schools are one of the prime reason for the consistent demand here. I'm not a real estate agent, just someone who also had been attracted to South OC. Perhaps you have a tie to San Diego and Irvine would add to that drive, but if not, I think you should give Irvine a serious look.

Paula, just following up. Have you loaded the Trulia Mobile app to your smart phone? You are going to love Irvine depending on your budget because you are in for a big price difference from Illinois. Check out Quail Hill area and if you have an interest in some very high end homes you will love Shady Canyon. My office is just outside of Shady. Best of luck to you and the family. ... more

Your agent should be working with the listing agent and the seller on this issue. If the clause was on the contract for the seller to pay the repairs and it was ok and signed by the seller, seller has the obligation to perform. Check out your Residential Purchase Contract page 7 of 8 regarding Dispute resolution. Good luck and hope your issue gets resolve. ... more
