Dear Visitor,

Migrant workers in Orange County orange groves (before this was "The OC") circa 1910.

Welcome to, the place for topical real estate content grounded in reality. For the Internet savvy, there are myriad sites where one can obtain real estate data for any given area. What is typically lacking is context and interpretation. This is where I come into play. While I am based in the Newport Beach and coastal Orange County marketplace, much of what you’ll read here is applicable to real estate as a whole.

On this site you’ll find Posts under:

  • Get Real–Neighborhood Spotlights, Sales Trends, general Real Estate commentary &  info
  • Short Sales–Inside scoop on the ins-and-outs of short sales
  • Rad Pads–Properties with unique architectural, design, and siting in Coastal Orange County
  • Webinars–Interactivewebucational” offerings on a weekly basis (coming soon!)
  • NHHS Beacon–Bixby Residential Journalism Scholarship Competition for Newport Harbor High School Seniors (begins Fall 2010)
  • Newport 365–Daily Post with local knowledge of 365 Things to do in Newport Beach, CA.

If you are now, or will soon be a buyer or seller, visit to learn more. Otherwise, I hope you enjoy BixbyBlog and stick around long enough to learn something new, or at least be entertained and amused while visiting.

All the best,

Grant Bixby
