Real Estate Agent Lori Thompson Appreciates Coldwell Banker

Lori Thompson Real Estate Agent - Home & Realty Magazine
Lori Thompson, Real Estate Agent

As 2016 reaches it’s sunset, I feel a growing sentiment and compelling urge to reflect upon the passed year. Looking back, there’s a multitude of things to be thankful for… family, friends, health.

A significant blessing is what I chose to do for a living: working in real estate representing Coldwell Banker. My company is an asset to me as I am working hard to be invaluable to it. The real estate industry is infamous for it’s cycles that can be, such as life, steady yet unpredictable. In both situations I have found Coldwell Banker to be supportive and resourceful. There’s a sense of peace knowing that my company has my back, especially in those times I need something to lean on. They are my confidants and cheerleaders and I am proud to pay it forward to my real estate team but above all, to my clients.

2017 means yet another year of growth for my business as I have done years past. Our industry leads the economy and we are only moving upward and forward. This holiday season I raise my glass to my family, friends and colleagues; I inspire you to attain more victories, love more fiercely and relish every minute of your waking moments. I wish you success in all your endeavors.

Happy Holidays,

Lori Thompson
Your Coldwell Banker, Real Estate Agent

Transforming Luxury & Inspiration

Once upon a time in a far away place called Los Angeles, there was a woman named Tammie Hoffman. Tammie was a classy LA Girly-girl type who always wore the finest shoes, dresses and skirts, and had her manis and pedis on a regular basis! She also had the brain cells to open to her own mortgage and loan company which she operated for a period of over 14 years, later transforming luxury and inspiration as this story is told.

Tammie got bored with the hustle and bustle of LA life. She next decided to move her family, consisting of one daughter and two sons, and her loving husband to the North West region of our country.  Seattle is where Tammie and her husband made their family’s new home. The great news was that the entire family was very content with their new lives in Seattle.


Transforming Luxury - Home & Realty Magazine
Tammie Hoffman – Transforming Luxury

As the months went by Tammie got started in a totally new adventure as a House Flipper, with very little experience! This LA Girly-girl didn’t quite give up her fancy shoes or her regularly scheduled manis and pedis! However with her new adventure Tammie wasn’t wearing chic clothing or  walking the red carpet in Seattle as a House Flipper. Instead she jumped into a pair of blue jeans and a sweat shirt as her new work attire. Tammie also used a skill saw and a hammer along with a diamond tipped wet saw for cutting flooring tiles. She also painted, stained, and even put in hardwood floors. She installed brand new cabinets, sinks, bathtubs and toilets and even landscaped the entire front and back yard on her transformation.

We have a complete home restoration video illustrating the Before, During, and After at Tammie’s Union Hill address!

WARNING!!! The Human brain has the attention span of a gnat! So we urge you to grab a beverage of your choice, sit back, and relax while the show is playing. Some of the most amazing views in Tammie’s home video are towards the end, where you see the final product produced by this amazing woman! We hope you enjoy the show!

Firenze Number Nine

Firenze Number Nine Spa

Firenze Number Nine

Via dei Conti is one of those dreamlike, narrow, gently curving streets in Florence’s Centro Storico. It is a compilation of outposts: a trattoria, a cafe, a warm and inviting vegan-ish restaurant, a vintage store, and a quintessential caffe. If we did not arrive by taxi at the exact address, we would have walked right by the nearly secretive Firenze Number Nine, an urban wellness hotel noted for its incredible fitness center and spa. Even after the first day, I found myself walking right by it. Swing open the wide glass door, step into the chic entrance room of the restored 17th century palace, and find yourself in the capable hands of Simone, an Yves Saint Laurent look-alike, complete with subdued manner, elegant eyewear, and a calming voice. The buzzy Centro Storico lay waiting for you on the other side of the glass, but for now, take a moment to re-center yourself inside this oasis in the heart of a sometimes frenzied city.

The staff are young, attentive, and excellently trained for their posts in luxury service. They speak in relaxed tones, they anticipate your every question and request, and due to the small and manageable size of the hotel, they give you their undivided attention. The mood is relaxed, however, and the hotel is set up so that guests feel as though they are at home with an added bonus of fantastic service. Wipe away the old-fashioned check-in desk; here is a more casual interaction, a concept that has become the norm in luxury hotels. I dare not use the word ‘lobby,’ which feels so dated and formal. Each time we returned to the property, we felt as though we were entering our own living room filled with friends and family.

Firenze Number Nine Spa Hotel RoomStudio Pieratteli Architecture designed the hotel in 2012 with their signature focus on materials, shapes, transparency, and lightness, which altogether create a feeling of floating in space. The decor juxtaposes elements of the renaissance with the uber contemporary and modern. The entrance rooms are adorned in neutral colors and classic Florentine materials including stone and marble, harmonized with flowers, accented with pops of orange, and furnished with comfortable seating draped in deep purple and cream velvets. Floor to ceiling bookcases offer guests reading material sorted by category: viaggia, l’arte, etc. It is the perfect room to decompress after hours on one’s feet or while waiting for a companion.

Firenze Number Nine SpaThe immaculate guest rooms are the most modern areas. Purple remains the accent color, with the rest of the room decorated in fresh, clean white. The bathrooms are a composition of dark gray tiles and white marble. If one is so lucky as to snag the penthouse suite, each traveler is rewarded with his or her own floor. Upstairs, the master bedroom is a spacious loft with a king size bed and an oversized bathroom. We quickly discovered that having separate bathrooms is truly the key to a successful vacation, (at the very least, separate sinks.)

Le Muse restaurant’s menu is a welcome respite from heavy Tuscan cooking, with innovative cuisine and even a few seafood options to choose from (seafood is quite difficult to find in Florence). The cocktails are an article in themselves; surely this one of the best cocktail bars in town with best mojito within a 100 mile radius. Non-alcoholic beverages are also worth raving about; the cappuccino at breakfast was outstanding. With the hotels’ focus on wellness, the organic and healthful breakfast items did not disappoint; a selection of seasonal fruit, yogurts, nuts, seeds, grains, and vegetable juices are always on offer, as well as plenty of savory items. The usual, ever so tempting homemade cakes and classic Florentine cornetti are omnipresent as well, certamente.

Firenze Number Nine SpaAttached to the hotel is an expansive fitness center with every modern exercise equipment that one would wish to find in a London or New York City fitness center, as well as yoga and pilates classes. The Arya Spa offers an endless array of organic, all natural treatments and massages, as well as basics like manicures and pedicures. Downstairs, guests can take advantage of Firenze Number Nine’s urban spa and fitness center. The exclusive wellness spa is complete with a sauna, a bio sauna, turkish bath, and whirlpool, perfect for rejuvenating weary feet and muscles after a day of wandering in the center.

Hello Home & Realty Magazine readers and welcome back to Huntington for Fun!

It is so exciting to be introducing all of the new and fun things to do in Huntington Beach’s new Pacific City!

Today we are going to learn about Old Crow Smokehouse! It’s located in Pacific City on Pacific Coast Highway and First Street. Old Crow is upstairs on the second level with plenty of ambiance to go along with it! This restaurant is a one of a kind here in HB. Nowhere else can you dine, drink and dance to live country music, while enjoying an ocean view!

Old Crow Smokehouse
Old Crow SmokeHouse

Old Crow Smokehouse was started by Michael Gonzales in Chicago 2012. He named the restaurant after Old Crow Bourbon. When Michael was 19 years old, he worked at his cousins restaurant in Chicago… he washed dishes, bused and waited tables, and all the while learning the restaurant business. Eventually he opened his own restaurant and not only was he successful at it but, he enjoyed it as well! Michael continued to open restaurants in the Chicago area, some even had a Mexican twist, such as his restaurant called Mo’s Cantina … all were successful. The first actual Old Crow Smokehouse started near Wrigley Field in a town called River North 4 years ago. Michael had a great idea to combine great Southern BBQ with good old fashion live country entertainment. The Old Crow Smokehouse in Chicago is iconic and has been going strong ever since they opened.

Through word of mouth, Michael was offered an opportunity to open a new restaurant here in Huntington Beach at the new Pacific City!!! Wow, from Chicago to Huntington Beach California? This was a chance he could not pass up! Michael took a chance, packed up his bags (and his chef) and left his 6 successful restaurants to come here and delight us with his Smokehouse concept!

Old Crow Smokehouse in Huntington Beach has something for everyone! From its rustic full length bar to the live country music … and food everywhere in between! The sliders were fantastic!! You can choose from pulled pork, BBQ chicken or brisket sliders… they are all delicious! There is a full bar stocked with anything you can think up! Lots and lots of appetizers to choose from! Delicious corn dogs with sausage instead of franks, fried okra, smoked Buffalo wings, pulled pork eggrolls and much more! The dry rub baby back ribs are the BEST I’ve ever had! The dry rub is made by Master Chef Tony Scruggs, in fact, he creates all the recipes. They are the meatiest ribs I’ve ever had in my life! Very good quality! I’ve actually met Tony in person and he is very proud of his dry rub recipe … he loves Huntington Beach! On Thursday nights Old Crow has live karaoke! This is no ordinary karaoke … these people have talent! Check it out, you will be impressed! On Friday and Saturday night you can enjoy live country music and dancing until 1:00 in the morning! Yay!!! Any other day of the week, you can enjoy the good food and beach atmosphere … a very positive place!

IMG_6520So, the next time you are looking to enjoy good barbeque and you like live entertainment, hop on over the Old Crow Smokehouse in Pacific City … You will love it!
