Panel Discussion – the Mount Washington Housing Market

We welcome all to attend this “end of summer” meeting. We are reaching out to realtors in the neighborhood to provide a panel discussion of the status of the market in Mount Washington, to get a feel for what is selling and what the current values are in our neighborhood. This should give us a perspective as to what is happening in our corner of Los Angeles as to why people might want to move in or move out.

Frank Pasker

Well, I couldn’t have been more wrong!
