    Remarks

    Welcome to the Twycross House!  This architecturally significant Craftsman Bungalow inspired the creation of a national magazine in 1990 known as American Bungalow The magazine also helped create a movement nationwide that popularized “Bungalow” homes which are prevalent in southern California.  We believe there have only been two owners of this noteworthy property since it was built in 1915.  It's easy to imagine yourself sitting on the cozy front porch beneath a beaded ceiling with a cold lemonade and a good book. 

    The living and dining rooms are rich in Craftsman architecture with Douglas fir batten & board walls and doors, a Batchelder fireplace which was improved by adding some reproduction tiles, built-in hutches & China cabinets, plate rails, and original wood flooring.  The huge R3 lot consists of 3 separate parcels totaling 18,015 square feet (130 frontage X 139 deep).  This property is on the Historic Register – please check with the city regarding adding additional units.

    During the seller’s ownership, the home has always been used as American Bungalow’s headquarters office and not used as a single-family residence.  Therefore, the photos show the bedrooms set up as offices.  This property awaits a new steward who can appreciate its architectural style, its rich history and restore it to its glory days!

    Reni's Biography

    Reni Rose began her real estate career at Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, (formally Prudential California Realty) Sierra Madre in 1987 and by October 1990, she was promoted to Vice President.  In November of 2011, Reni became the owner and was appointed President of the firm.  During her career, Reni has represented countless employees of many local companies/firms in Pasadena and surrounding cities, such as: Jacobs Engineering Group Inc., California Institute of Technology, Tetra Tech, Avery, Disney, Parsons, Western Asset Management, NASA/JPL, etc.  

     

    Reni has been ranked within the top 1 to 2% of Berkshire Hathaway real estate associates since 1993 as a “Chairman’s Circle” award winner for sale performance.  She has also been the #1 Producer in her office since 1988.  In 2000 and 2006 Reni received the prestigious “Legend” award for consistently achieving a multi-million-dollar level every year.   With over 42,000 sale associates in the Berkshire Hathaway system, only 76 associates received this designation and Reni was one of them! 

     

    An unspoken testimonial and complement to Reni’s job performance is that eighty-five percent of Reni’s business is either repeat clients or referrals.  Reni sincerely enjoys her career as a real estate executive and her passion for the business will become apparent to you after spending just a few minutes with her.  Just ask, “How’s business?”

     

    Although born in Texas, Reni is a transplant from New Orleans, Louisiana with 25 family members still residing in the “Big Easy.”  She has a daughter, Chelsea, and son-in-law, Luke, who live in Camarillo.     

     

    Reni has lived in The Highlands of Arcadia since March 1994 and has also lived in Sierra Madre and Pasadena.  Prior to her career in real estate, she spent 10 years with the Federal Government, ending her Government career at NASA/JPL in Pasadena. 

    My “Client-First” Philosophy

    This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires that I continually improve my skills and ways of doing business.  In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only more quickly and efficiently.  These every expanding technologies have also allowed me to extend the range of services available to my clients.

    There are many qualities and skills that are the hallmarks of an excellent real estate professional: integrity, market savvy, knowledge, experience, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network - all of which make up who I am and how I work.

    That said, in my experience as a real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first.  This means being accessible, being a good listener, being a good communicator and responding quickly and efficiently to my client’s needs.
