Life is an adventure and I have been blessed to be fully engaged today doing residential real estate in the most fantastic part of the world, Southern Orange County California. When I moved our starting family here in 1964, I had no idea of the economic wonderland that this county would become. Then most of the county was orange groves, farm land, cattle grazing or just wild open space. The Santa Ana 5 freeway ended at San Clemente and was a four lane highway. There were just one million residents mostly in the north; today the county has over three million two hundred thousand residents. In 1964 a really expensive ocean view home cost seventy thousand dollars in Monarch Beach, Newport Cost was just wild open space. Today the same home in Monarch beach will be five million and some built on that wild open space of Newport coast will be thirty million. Is this place magic or what? Orange County California is truly the Magic Kingdom.
