Free ‘smart’ gardening programs Programs are ongoing Two free educational programs can help would-be “green thumbs” make water-wise plans. Both programs are ideal ways for homeowners to learn how to improve their yards or learn water-wise basics they can use to consider applying for the city’s water conservation rebates. Rebates—up to $915—are offered for water-wise irrigation and turf removal. See www.lakewoodcity.org/WaterRebates.
Los Angeles County offers dozens of free “Smart Gardening” workshops on ways to get a great-looking yard while using less water and energy and wasting fewer resources. See www.lakewoodcity.org/smartgardener. [FULL STORY]

Lakewood Youth Sports volunteer coaches needed Volunteer coaches are needed for baseball, softball and T-ball teams for the summer season at all Lakewood parks.

Nominate a Lakewood home! Lakewood Beautiful nominations began in March and will be accepted through the end of June. Now in its 34th year, the Lakewood Beautiful Home Awards honor Lakewood homes that reflect a special “pride of ownership” in property upkeep, landscaping and other general appearance.
Studies show that home upkeep and beautification efforts by caring, committed residents keep crime rates low and property values healthy, thereby benefitting everyone in a city. Residents can view a slide show of past Distinguished Recognition honorees at www.lakewoodcity.org/BeautifulHomes. [FULL STORY]

Before going into real estate in 2001, I worked in the medical field. Found it very rewarding helping others and decided to make a switch and help those, who want to achieve the "American Dream". As a homeowner, I know the importance of home ownership and nothing gives me more pleasure than to place those keys into the hands of a new homeowner. I look forward to helping you, with all your real estate needs.
