Global Real Estate Advisor
More information about me.
In 1984 a seasoned Realtor invited Bonney Larson to help her with a condo project. Bonney loved the work and decided to continue with it-and she has worked in the real estate industry ever since. Her previous profession was in nursing, which she also enjoyed. Bonney has been married to Vic for many years; their children grew up in Manhattan Beach but now live in Ventura and Seattle. Bonney loves to read, walk, spend time with her family, and cook and be creative with new recipes. What does it take to be the best in the business? "Many things-including very hard work, persistence, highest integrity and superior communication with clients and all people involved in the real estate transaction." What do your clients love about living in the South Bay? "The fabulous weather, the beauty of our ocean and beaches, the walking path and The Strand, and the small towns with actual town centers." Who is your typical client? "Single people, families, second generation of clients, rehabbers, people moving up or consolidating, investors." In what ways do you provide top-notch service to your clients? "If the client is willing, I like to do an in-depth interview to determine the client's goals. For instance: what kind of home they would really love to have and their most important features, location and just what kind of a feel the home should have." What's most rewarding about your work? "The best part is showing a home that you thought would be perfect-and it is. The clients fall in love with it, and it is so rewarding to make it all happen." What keeps you interested in real estate? "Real estate is always changing. You meet new people, see different types of homes and properties, and new information and better ways of doing things are always being presented. Every transaction is different. It is difficult to be bored." Tell us about your team. "Over the years I have connected with many great sources, such as escrow officers, lenders, title officers, inspectors, contractors, builders and tradespeople. It is a great service to my clients to be able to refer experienced, reliable people. South Bay Brokers is a great team, and we all share our resources and expertise." In which area of real estate do you specialize? "I sell single-family homes, condos, townhomes and small apartments throughout the South Bay, not just the Beach Cities."
