I think in the past two days I've completely forgotten about how much of a hassle the entire escrow process has been. It's a tremendous feeling to finally have our new home, we couldn't be more excited. We've been slowly moving some things in this week, and plan to be completely moved in by the end of the weekend.
Mary and I are very grateful that we were able to find you as our agent. Throughout the past couple months of escrow, you were the only person that Mary and I felt had our best interests at heart. I felt like you always made decisions based upon our best interests and I always felt confident you were strongly in our corner when any difficulties came up with escrow or our loan company. We enjoyed every interaction we had with you, and never felt any bit of conflict even though the conditions of this escrow were extremely challenging. You have our business for life, and we will strongly recommend you to any of our friends who ask our advice regarding who to select as their agent.

Hollywood sign saved again!

On Monday it was announced that the last of the money was raised through a donation from Hugh Hefner, of $900,000 and then a matching donation from Tiffany and Co Foundation and Aileen Getty of a further $500,000, to help the City purchase the property to keep it out of the hands of real estate developers. Arnold Schwarzenegger and the Trust of Public land led by Will Rogers have been raising money with the help of donations from Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, the studios, and with fundraisers held by the locals. Finally on Monday Hugh Hefner's donation brought the grand total to 12.5 million dollars, the agreed amount the owners would sell the property to the City for. This is not the first time Hugh Hefner has come to the rescue of the sign, back in the late 70's he played a major role in fundraising for the rebuilding of the then dilapidated sign.
