50 Shades of Real Estate Love, Passion and Obsession

50 Shades of Real Estate Love, Passion and Obsession

In a weekend when Valentine’s Day love collides with 50 Shades of Grey obsession, you can’t help but ponder other loves, passions and obsessions that warrant celebrating. From an early age I have nurtured an unshakable love for Real Estate. Discovering how real estate creates that special type of shelter that everyone yearns to possess; it evens generates the brand of wealth that most cannot amass by simply working a job; and it gives great power to its owners who are fortunate enough to hold on to it at the right time and wise enough to let go when necessary.

I cherish the pure and innocent love of real estate inherent in every first time home buyer who asks me to help them acquire their first home. I sense their determination as they formulate plans to own their very first piece of the earth. I cheer them on as they save every penny, cut out the Starbucks coffee, eat tuna sandwiches for months and adopt other austerity measures until they secure the minimum 3.5% down-payment to qualify for an FHA loan. I celebrate with them when they close escrow, get their first set of keys and step over the threshold for the first time as homeowners.


I recognize that mature love for real estate in the family that has outgrown their starter home because their family has expanded beyond that town-home and they yearn for a single family home with a beautiful yard for their kids to play and located in a great school district. They are thrilled to discover that they have amassed substantial equity which will provide huge down-payment for their move-up home.

I tip my hat to the entrepreneurial passion (sometimes obsession) for real estate unique to investors, flippers, budding landlords who seek out diamonds in the rough and develop them into profitable ventures. These rare breeds spend countless hours at court house auctions, show up at bankruptcy sales, probate sales, scout out every fixer upper on the MLS, and even knock on doors of delinquent property tax homeowners. They endure many indignities, yet, they do not lose their focus on the gainful outcome. We all owe these flippers and investors a debt of gratitude for improving our neighborhoods with their cash infusion in previously dilapidated properties.

I am most touched by the elderly with foresight in the power of real estate to provide them with a safe and secure retirement. Their sage wisdom will earn them many dividends as they liquidate and swap their vast landed estates for smaller manageable condominiums in retirement or other fun communities.


Whether you are a first time home buyer, a move up buyer, an investor, landlord, flipper or a retiree downsizing, all of these loving and passionate real estate ventures are only made possible with the competent assistance of a good Realtor. If you wish to purchase a home or sell one, call Realtor Bandele Oguntomilade at 818-825-6996 or email her at Bandele@BogunRealty.com – she turns real estate possibilities into reality!

Celebrating My Buyers’ Purchase of Their Brand New Home!

Today, I am joyfully celebrating with my repeat clients, Michelle and Victor, the successful purchase of their brand new 4 bedroom 3 bathroom “move-up” home!

I met Michelle 6 years ago when she was still single and before she purchased her first townhome. We talked about her vision for the future and found ways to make them come true. She like I, truly believed in setting goals, verbalizing them, creating a workable plan (even a “vision board”) and implementing them. Since that first meeting 6 years ago, I represented her in her purchase of her first townhome, listing and sale of that townhome 5 years later, building from “dirt-up” and purchase of this beautiful brand new 4 bedroom home with her husband, Victor.

On close of escrow day, we reminiscenced about the journey to this point. How over 5 years they completely renovated the townhome and turned it into an energy efficient home by installing improvements like tankless water heater, all double pane energy efficient windows and doors. How their vision and hard work paid off and they sold the townhome for a substantial profit. How the concept of “energy efficiency” fully drove the design of their new home with full solar panels and no electric bills, all energy star appliances; they even built in a plug for their next electric car. We laughed about the guava jam that Michelle made each year from the guava tree in their townhome and how she delivered a jar to me every year. We mulled over all the wonderful ways they will enjoy their beautiful new entertainer’s kitchen which seemed to be 4 times the size of their old kitchen (no exaggeration), how they intend to turn one of the bedrooms into Michelle’s sewing and crafts room, about how they will wake up on weekends and lounge in their upstairs patio adjacent to the master bedroom and enjoy spectacular views of majestic California mountains, about barbequing with family in the back yard in the spring, about how their puppy will have a field day “christening the new house”, and about the upcoming emotional reveal to their entire family of this wonderful accomplishment.

Michelle caught me shed a little tear as we gobbled down those delicious cheese biscuits at Red Lobster, and said “it’s like your kids are growing up”. I am truly proud of their accomplishment which is only achieved by visionary goal setting, tenacious focus, and precise “navy-seal-like”execution.
