6 Luxury Home Offices

That Will Inspire Your 2019 Success


Grilled Flank Steak Salad


  • 1 2-lb flank steak
  • 2 tablespoons dry rub (equal parts salt, pepper, garlic powder)
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 clove of garlic, smashed and diced
  • ½ tablespoon fresh grated ginger
  • ½ tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely diced
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground pepper, a few turns of the grinder
  1. Rinse the meat and pat dry.
  2. In a large freezer bag add all the marinade ingredients and shake, combining all together.
  3. Add the meat to the bag, zip it, and try to avoid excess air.
  4. Put freezer bag into the refrigerator for a couple of hours (up to six) and occasionally shake it up, making sure the marinade is being evenly distributed to the meat.
  5. Warm up grill to medium high heat and remove meat from freezer bag.
  6. Sprinkle the meat with dry rub on both sides. 
  7. Grill over direct heat for approximately 4-5 minutes on each side for a medium rare steak, but adjust time based on your desired doneness. Check temperature with a good digital thermometer for your desired temp. We aim for 130-135 degrees internal temperature. 
  8. Remove from grill and let sit at least 10 minutes to allow juices to settle.
  9. Slice across the grain in thin slices and serve over a salad or as a filling for sandwiches.

3 Reasons Why Selling a House in the Winter May Be the Best Decision Ever


1. Low inventory = less competition
Most sellers still think they need to sell in the spring, but that means there is more competition for buyers’ attention. 
In the winter, there are fewer homes for sale. That competition over low inventory can make this season an ideal time to sell your home.
2. Year-end financial bonuses and payouts
As a seller, year-end performance reviews could mean that more people have money to spend on a home.
End-of-year financial bonuses or workers retiring with large payouts could mean opportunities for these buyers to upgrade their living situations or for first-time buyers to enter the housing market.
3. Corporate relocation
You could also encounter buyers who are relocating for a job.
One of the biggest months for corporate relocation is January/February, so those buyers, who need to move quickly, are out in full force looking for new homes.

IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT SELLING your Bay Area property, it is important you hire a real estate team of professionals with an extensive portfolio of home sales, a significant list of happy clients and a history of excellence.
The Laugesen Team has the experience, connections and creativity to successfully list and sell your distinctive property.
