Cheer writer Rob Long recently sold his Venice abode to Rodeo Realty agent Kevin Tidwells’ buyers.

The four bedroom home brims with charm. From the built-in cherry wood bookshelves in the library to the antique chandeliers in the dining room. In the recently updated kitchen is a bluestone island and La Cornue range. The abode also features a maturely landscaped yard that fills out the urban space and patio. Lest we not for get the Pizza Oven out back.

Long, whose TV credits include sitcoms “Cheers” and “Kevin Can Wait” bought the home in 1998, living there for more than two decades before deciding to sell. He has won six Golden Globes and is also the co-creator of such hits like “Sullivan & Son. “Love & Money” and “George & Leo”.

A Wish Granted: Bobby Karami’s Clients Receive Grant Checks towards New Home

CAR and SRAR continue dedicated efforts towards affordable housing.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (May 17, 2019)- This past April, Bobby Karami of Rodeo Realty Calabasas helped his most recent buyers secure their dream home. How was this accomplished you might ask?

Through the CAR and SRAR Grant Fund. Karami applied for the grant on behalf of his buyers and both in turn received a check for $2,000 towards their HOA dues.

He went on to share with us that additional details of the overall process. Stating “They offered this grant for my buyers who bought after February and worked with a realtor”.

In the Golden State, the primary sources of home funding include downpayment loans and grants, mortgage credit certificates, sleeping seconds and bond-rate financing, In addition, many local, state and national housing assistance agencies offer programs to help first-time and low-income homebuyers obtain affordable housing.

Federal and state governments, local communities, and non-profit organizations offer homeownership assistance in the form of grants or gifts. These gifts don’t have to be repaid as long as borrowers meet the individual program’s requirements.

Southland Regional Association of Realtors®, in partnership with the California Association of Realtors® Housing Affordability Fund, is providing grants to qualified first-time home buyers up to six month of HOA dues, not to exceed $2000. Applicants must meet certain requirements, including income limitations

In addition to these grants on November, 2002, CALIFORNIA REALTORS® unveiled the Housing Affordability Fund, a non-profit 501(c)(3) dedicated to addressing California’s growing housing affordability crisis. In the midst of skyrocketing housing costs, REALTORS® were bearing witness to more working families getting pushed away from the American dream of homeownership. The Housing Affordability Fund was established to provide more options for first time homebuyers’ entry into homeownership.

With numerous resources for first time homebuyers, finding your dream home is even more seamless with dedicated agents like Bobby Karami.

Talented chef Eric Bost has put together one of LA’s most refined new restaurants in Auburn, into the totally remade former Hatfield’s space on Melrose.

The menu is clever and creative, with twelve courses — nine savory and three sweet — with diners picking a choice of any four, six, or nine. Meals start at $75 and go up to $150 depending on the number of courses, plus more for wine pairings, but one could see this elegant but relatively approachable experience is clearly reaching for Michelin status.

Natural Home Remedies for Pest

Spring Flowers bring May showers and also sometimes unwanted guest. With so many choices for how to rid your house of unexpected visitors, why not go the natural route? Read our list of Natural Home Remedies for Pest control and keep your house pest free this season.

1. Garlic-Mint Insect Spray

For outdoor pest-control, try cooking up this Hometalker’s  mixture of Garlic-Mint spray. Just take some mint leaves and garlic cloves and blend them in a food processor, then add a bit of cayenne pepper and a drop of dishwashing liquid. Bring the whole concoction to a boil and let sit overnight. Strain it into a spray bottle and voila! – keep your greens growing strong and pest free!

2. Coffee grounds

Critters and pests don’t love your coffee like you do — in fact, they hate it. For ants, coffee grounds are fatal. Try getting rid of bugs by utilizing recycled coffee grounds around your home in the area from which you think the bugs are emerging.

3. Soap spray insecticide

A very similar homemade pesticide to the oil spray is a soap spray, which is also effective for controlling mites, aphids, whiteflies, beetles, and other hungry little insects. To make a basic soap spray insecticide, mix 1 1/2 teaspoons of a mild liquid soap (such as castile soap) with 1 quart of water, and spray the mixture directly on the infected surfaces of the plants. A soap spray insecticide works in a similar fashion as an oil spray pesticide, and can be applied as necessary (though it is always recommended to NOT apply it during the hot sunny part of the day, but rather in the evenings or early mornings).

4. Dust Mite Oil Repellent

For your own dust mite repellent spray, try mixing either Clove, Eucalyptus, Lavender, Peppermint or Rosemary oil into a spray bottle of water and use it to mist your bed lightly. Allow the spray to air dry. Mites detest these scents and will stay away from them. For additional pest control, try a mixture of Basil and Lemongrass to not only repel dust mites, but also fleas and lice.

5. Hot Pepper Spray

For a hotter kind of pest control in the garden, try mixing 1 gallon of water and 3 tablespoons of hot pepper flakes or 10 peppers chopped up finely if you’re using fresh peppers (cayenne works the best but other varieties work as well). Simmer ingredients in a pan for 15 minutes and then let it sit for 24 hours before straining. Add a couple drops of dish soap to help the solution adhere to your plants.

6. Apple Cider Vinegar Fruit Fly Trap

For this fruit fly trap, you will need a bottle or other kind of container with a shaker or funnel shaped top, so that flies can get in but not out. Fill the bottom of the bottle with apple cider vinegar or vinegar and chopped apple pieces and get rid of that buzzing in your ear.

7. Tomato leaf as a natural insecticide

I have to admit that this one is new to me, but I’ve seen enough mentions of it now to warrant its inclusion here as a natural pesticide. Tomato plants are part of the nightshade family, and as such, contain alkaloids such as the aptly named “tomatine,” which can effectively control aphids and other insects. To make tomato leaf spray for a natural insecticide, chop 2 cups of fresh tomato leaves (which can be taken from the bottom part of the plant) into 1 quart of water, and let steep overnight. Strain out the plant material and spray onto plant foliage.

8. Bananas and Tin Foil

To rid your garden of aphids, place chopped up banana peel under the soil line around the stems of your plants. This deters the nasty critters and adds some nutrients to the soil. As an additional trick, to chase aphids from the underside of leaves, place foil around the base of your plant. The light from the sun will reflect off of the foil and onto the underside of the leaves. Be careful though — too much light might scorch the plant.

9. Chrysanthemum Flower Tea

These flowers hold a powerful plant chemical component called pyrethrum. This substance invades the nervous system of insects, rendering them immobile. You can make your own spray by boiling 100 grams of dried flowers into 1 liter of water. Boil dried flowers in water for twenty minutes. Strain, cool, and pour into a spray bottle. Can be stored for up to two months. You can also add some organic neem oil to enhance the effectiveness.

10. Salt Spray

For treating plants infested with spider mites, mix two tablespoons of Himalayan Crystal Salt into one gallon of warm water and spray on infected areas.

10 Tips for a Good Night Sleep

Think about all the factors that can interfere with a good night’s sleep — from work stress and family responsibilities to unexpected challenges, such as illnesses. It’s no wonder that quality sleep is sometimes elusive.

While you might not be able to control the factors that interfere with your sleep, you can adopt habits that encourage better sleep. Start with these simple tips.

1. Stick to a sleep schedule

Set aside no more than eight hours for sleep. The recommended amount of sleep for a healthy adult is at least seven hours. Most people don’t need more than eight hours in bed to achieve this goal. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Try to limit the difference in your sleep schedule on weeknights and weekends to no more than one hour. Being consistent reinforces your body’s sleep-wake cycle. If you don’t fall asleep within about 20 minutes, leave your bedroom and do something relaxing. Read or listen to soothing music. Go back to bed when you’re tired. Repeat as needed.

2. Pay attention to what you eat and drink

Don’t go to bed hungry or stuffed. In particular, avoid heavy or large meals within a couple of hours of bedtime. Your discomfort might keep you up. Nicotine, caffeine and alcohol deserve caution, too. The stimulating effects of nicotine and caffeine take hours to wear off and can wreak havoc on quality sleep. And even though alcohol might make you feel sleepy, it can disrupt sleep later in the night.

3. Create a restful environment

Create a room that’s ideal for sleeping. Often, this means cool, dark and quiet. Exposure to light might make it more challenging to fall asleep. Avoid prolonged use of light-emitting screens just before bedtime. Consider using room-darkening shades, earplugs, a fan or other devices to create an environment that suits your needs. Doing calming activities before bedtime, such as taking a bath or using relaxation techniques, might promote better sleep.

4. Limit daytime naps

Long daytime naps can interfere with nighttime sleep. If you choose to nap, limit yourself to up to 30 minutes and avoid doing so late in the day. If you work nights, however, you might need to nap late in the day before work to help make up your sleep debt.

5. Include physical activity in your daily routine

Regular physical activity can promote better sleep. Avoid being active too close to bedtime, however. Spending time outside every day might be helpful, too.

6. Manage worries

Try to resolve your worries or concerns before bedtime. Jot down what’s on your mind and then set it aside for tomorrow. Stress management might help. Start with the basics, such as getting organized, setting priorities and delegating tasks. Meditation also can ease anxiety.

7. Increase Bright Light Exposure During The Day

Your body has a natural time-keeping clock known as your circadian rhythm. It affects your brain, body and hormones, helping you stay awake and telling your body when it’s time to sleep. Natural sunlight or bright light during the day helps keep your circadian rhythm healthy. This improves daytime energy, as well as nighttime sleep quality and duration. While most research is in people with severe sleep issues, daily light exposure will most likely help you even if you experience average sleep. Try getting daily sunlight exposure or — if this is not practical — invest in an artificial bright-light device or bulbs.

8. Reduce Blue Light Exposure in the Evening

Exposure to light during the day is beneficial, but nighttime light exposure has the opposite effect. Again, this is due to its impact on your circadian rhythm, tricking your brain into thinking it is still daytime. This reduces hormones like melatonin, which help you relax and get deep sleep. Blue light — which electronic devices like smartphones and computers emit in large amounts — is the worst in this regard.

9. Optimize Your Bedroom Environment

Many people believe that the bedroom environment and its setup are key factors in getting a good night’s sleep. These factors include temperature, noise, external lights and furniture arrangement. Numerous studies point out that external noise, often from traffic, can cause poor sleep and long-term health issues. To optimize your bedroom environment, try to minimize external noise, light and artificial lights from devices like alarm clocks. Make sure your bedroom is a quiet, relaxing, clean and enjoyable place.

10. Exercise Regularly — But Not Before Bed

Exercise is one of the best science-backed ways to improve your sleep and health. It can enhance all aspects of sleep and has been used to reduce symptoms of insomnia. One study in older adults determined that exercise nearly halved the amount of time it took to fall asleep and provided 41 more minutes of sleep at night. Although daily exercise is key for a good night’s sleep, performing it too late in the day may cause sleep problems. This is due to the stimulatory effect of exercise, which increases alertness and hormones like epinephrine and adrenaline. However, some studies show no detrimental effects, so it clearly depends on the individual.

Josh Flagg receives Ambassador Award

The Bravo star and Rodeo Realty Top Producer receives recognition for his philanthropic work.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif (May 9, 2019)-Mr. Flagg is at it again. Not with his vloggs (although they are worth the watch as a weekly treat), but as an impressive community member. A born and raised Angeleno, Josh Flagg has always made it a point to give back to his community. It should therefor come as no surprise that earlier in the year he was presented with the Ambassador Award by the Guardians of Los Angeles Jewish Home at their 80th celebration.

The mission of the Guardians is to provide financial support for seniors and needy members of the Jewish community served by the Los Angeles Jewish Home, through residential and community-based programs. The organization was founded in 1938 by a handful of volunteers.

The event, dubbed “1938: A Comedy Night for the Ages,” drew more than 650 attendees and raised over $630,000, said Jessi Cazary, manager of the Guardians.

Josh currently serves on the ‘Guardians’ executive board. Along with his contributions to the ‘Guardians’ Josh also sits on the Board of Governors for Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Josh and his husband, Bobby Boyd, also a top-producing Rodeo Realty agent, founded The Josh Flagg and Bobby Boyd Family Foundation to continue support of many different causes especially locally in Los Angeles.

It is through their ongoing philanthropic endeavors and presence as LA residents and top-producing agents that their impact can be seen throughout and even beyond Los Angeles.
In Josh’s own words, “My grandparents and parents instilled in me at a very young age that giving back to the community is the most important thing you can do if you’re privileged enough to do that, not only financially, but privileged as a human being that you would want to help other people with your time.”
About Josh Flagg:
Josh Flagg is one of America’s most successful and sought after luxury real estate agents, having completed more than two billion dollars in residential real estate sales in the past 13 years. As of 2015, Flagg has become the number two volume agent in Los Angeles and the number three agent in sales in California.
His record sales and unrelenting work ethic have Josh currently recognized by The Wall Street Journal as one of the top-ranked agents in California and nationally by sales volume and as a top 25 real estate agent by The Hollywood Reporter. He has been the agent for many of Hollywood’s biggest names including Adam Levine, Steve Aoki, Shonda Rhymes, and Chicago’s Robert Lamm to name a few. In 2012 Josh earned the distinction of being named a Forbes’ 30 under 30.

Josh is the star of Bravo’s hit show Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles now in its tenth Season and he has appeared on the show since its debut season. Josh also regularly appears as a real estate expert on various Fox Business shows, CNBC’s Squawk Box, NBC’s Today Show, E!, CBS The Insider, Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, ABC’s Good Morning America, as well as in the pages of The Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Forbes Magazine, and Variety among others.
About The Guardians of Los Angeles Jewish Home:
The mission of The Guardians of the Los Angeles Jewish Home is to provide financial support for elderly and needy members of the Los Angeles Jewish community who are served by the Los Angeles Jewish Home, through residential and community-based programs.

On May 16, 1938 a group of Angelenos gathered to form what is now known as The Guardians of the Los Angeles Jewish Home. We are the largest support group of its kind in the United States and are primarily a volunteer-driven organization. The Guardians of the Los Angeles Jewish Home is one of the preeminent charitable endeavors in Los Angeles.
