Bud Mauro awarded the REALTOR® Emeritus Award from the National Association of REALTORS®

Congrats to one of our veteran agents,  Bud Mauro!

 Rodeo Realty would like to congratulate Joseph A. “Bud” Mauro who was recently awarded the REALTOR® Emeritus Award from the National Association of REALTORS® at their Midyear Legislative and Trade Expo. Mauro served as a Director of the California Association of REALTORS® for several years.
    Mauro has been affiliated with Rodeo Realty since 1991. Throughout his years with Rodeo Realty, he has earned many awards for his success and professionalism. “Over the years, I am sure that all of you have heard me remark about the experience level of the agents that serve at the local associations.        Many are either inactive and have never been active. It is difficult to have people making policy for us when they really don’t know what we do and can’t grasp the process. Bud Mauro is different. He has owned his own real estate business; he has been active in real estate, for over 40 years. He has been a top producer and Presidents Circle award winner at Rodeo Realty for over 20 years! He served as President of the SRAR in 1998, he has been on the Board of Directors of both the SRAR and CAR. I am grateful that a person of Bud’s stature is willing to volunteer his time at the association level,” Leibovitch said.
     Teresa Todd, Rodeo Realty’s Northridge Branch Manager stated, “it has been a privilege to work with Bud Mauro.  His commitment to the highest level of professionalism has been an inspiration to many of our agents.  He has devoted countless hours as a leader of REALTORS®, at our local and state level and has continued to serve the needs of his clients and is never too busy to give assistance and encouragement to other agents, even to new licensees.”
     REALTOR® Emeritus status is awarded to a member in recognition of forty cumulative years of membership in the National Association of REALTORS® and in recognition of valuable and lasting contribution to the real estate profession in the community. REALTOR®, Bud Mauro, meets these requirements, and more.

Market trends & increased demand for creative offices on Westside


Santa Monica is the first choice location for many large media and technology companies.  With the increased growth in the technology and new media industry, the high demand for nontraditional office space featuring modern architectural design  has created a shortage of vacant office space available in Santa Monica. 


According to  a recent LA Times article, direct vacancy in the 17.7-million-
square-foot Westside creative office market was 9.2%, the lowest level since the first quarter of 2009. Much of the growth is coming from established tech and digital media companies including Google, Apple, Pandora and YouTube.


Santa Monica has become a technology hub, home to many of the worlds biggest names such as Google and Yahoo. However, due to the lack of inventory, new tech and media companies are expanding their office search to the outskirts of Santa Monica which has helped push growth into nearby markets such as Playa Vista, Culver City and Marina del Ray.

Santa Monica ranks as best place for the rich and single to live

It is no surprise Santa Monica ranks as one of the best places to live in the country but according to a recent ranking on CNN Money website, Santa Monica topped the charts as one of the “best places for the rich and single to live.” 

According to the recent CNN Money article, Santa Monica is comprised of more than 40 percent unmarried individuals. The endless amounts of cool beach vibe entertainment, clear sandy beaches, shopping and dining make Santa Monica the ultimate place to live fabulously.  Santa Monica is also ranked as one of the best places to live for the wealthy, particularity in one of the most exclusive and highly desired family communities, North of Montana,  where large family homes sell range in the several million dollar range. 



There are many things that make Santa Monica one of the country’s best places to live. Here is one of my favorite summer events at the Santa Monica Pier which does also offer a wide variety of events throughout the year. For a great night of good music, mingling and new friends give the Twilight Concert Series a try before it ends!
Check out the last 2 summer concerts left before the close of the 28th year of the Summer Twilight Concert Series. 
  • Aug. 30: New Orleans’ own Hot 8 Brass Band and Louisiana funk band The Gumbo Brothers
  • Sept. 6: SoCal Indie Breakout Act Best Coast
