Altadena New Listing: Altadena is located just North of Pasadena.  Here, buyers are able to find nice, affordable homes.  I have previewed several properties in the $400,00 price range.  All with nice landscaping, new paint, flooring and even came with new appliances.

Last week at the Broker’s Open House, I came across a charming traditional perfect for a first time home buyer.

3067 Santa Rosa Avenue is situated North of Altadena Drive.  I enjoyed driving up Santa Rosa seeing the beautiful trees and the mountain views.  Santa Rosa Avenue is also called the Christmas Tree Lane.  During Christmas, hundreds of holiday lights are put up by the neighbors and association. This event attracts many people to the area.
