Summer Dream Home Contest

It’s no secret that some of the most beautiful homes are in Southern California, and our agents know it better than anyone else. We want to find the best listed home in Southern California, so we turned to our agents and asked them to send us the best of their current listings. Once we had our submissions, we put them to a vote and chose, from each county, one listing that we thought best represented the California lifestyle. Now that we have representatives from Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange, Santa Barbara, and Ventura counties, we need you to choose which one is your ideal Summer Dream Home.

Voting is easy, and once you vote you’ll be entered in a random drawing to win a $25 card. All you have to do is:
