A Great Example of Superior Service (Oakley).

Oakley does it right.

Example:

  • I called them at 6:30 am and they answered the phone.
  • Found me in their data base after 6 years.
  • Determined the part that I needed. Earsocks for my Spike glasses that were a discontinued pair of glasses.
  • Put me on hold for less than a minute. (cool music plays while I waited)
  • Return to let me know the item is available and will ship for free.

Theres no doubt in my mind why Oakley is successful.

I will order a new pair from them again.

How Do I Winterize my Big Bear Home?

Winterizing your Big Bear Cabin can save you money and avoid damage to your plumbing system. Below is the instructions that the DWP sends out to help homeowners understand the process. It’s a good idea to turn your stop and waste valve off whenever you are leaving the mountains, even in the summer. By doing this you will keep the stop and waste valve from becoming hard to turn or stuck in one position.

Should I Install an Earthquake Gas Shut Off Valve on my Big Bear Home?

 

 

 

 

Gas shut off valves are not required by law in Big Bear. Many people that buy a home in Big Bear are faced with the question of whether or not they should have one installed. Some of the insurance carriers require a earthquake gas shut off valve before they will issue home owners insurance.

As a homeowner in the Big Bear area for over 18 years, I would say that you want to do your homework on this before you have one installed.

I have sold homes to people that have had these installed and have not been happy with some of the things that can happen.

These valves are designed to shut off the natural gas in the event of an earthquake. That means they are activated by movement. If the valve closes it must be reset and you will need to relight the pilot or check to see that the appliances, heater and water heater are working after the reset. This can be hard to accomplish if you are not aware of the valve activating or the event that caused the valve to shut off. If your home is a second home and the gas shuts off in the winter, you may end up with some damage to your plumbing.

 

Another type of valve (shown at the right) may be a better choice in this situation. A valve that restricts the flow, or a excess flow valve. These valve claim to restrict the flow to a safe level, but only activate if there is an increase in flow that is caused by a break in the line.

 

 

 

 

You can always just turn the gas off manually if you are at the home when the emergency occurs. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You should consult a plumbing and heating contractor to find out the pros and cons of each type of gas flow protection that is available.

Don’t watch the weather in San Diego, to decide what to wear tomorrow in Big Bear!

Remember, all Real Estate is local. Listening to the national news reports on the Real Estate market and applying that information to local Real Estate is a sure way to be misinformed. Contact a Realtor that lives and works in the area that you are interested in.

Don’t pack up your Orange County or San Diego Real Estate agent and drag him or her to Big Bear to show you homes that they can’t find with a GPS.

Find a local agent that knows current local market conditions and the statistics thereof. 

I am a local Realtor in Big Bear. I have lived in the community since 1990. You won’t see me representing anyone in a Real Estate transaction anywhere other than Big Bear. I have sold over 35 million dollars in local Big Bear Real Estate since 2005, and I have a long list of satisfied clients.

Call me if you would like to investigate Real Estate opportunities in Big Bear Lake, Big Bear City, Moonridge, Fawnskin, Fox Farm, Castle Glen, Meadowbrook, Whispering Forest, Sugarloaf, Baldwin Lake, Lake Williams, or Erwin Lake.

I can show you any home for sale in Big Bear.

Bear Valley News-Big Bear Lake’s efforts to go green-April 25, 2009

Big Bear Lake’s efforts to go green

 

 

green_big_bear_lake1

Mayor Rick Herrick and Mayor Pro Tem Bill Jahn placing clean air decal on a City fleet alternate fuel vehicle.

 

   In the spirit of Earth Day and an effort year-round to be conscious of ways the City of Big Bear Lake can “go green”, several green efforts are already in place:

  • Adoption & Implementation of Green Building Codes – The City is looking in to possible certification of green builders and recognizing ‘green homes’.

  • Recycling programs where students at local schools are encouraged to recycle aluminum cans & plastic bottles.  Bins are purchased and thru a partnership with the Big Bear Rotary Early Act Club, funds received from recycling go back to the schools to fund projects such as playground equipment, etc. In addition, recycling containers are located at City parks. 

  • Recycling bins (bottles, cans & white paper) are provided at every employee workstation, in copy rooms and break rooms.

  • The Big Bear Lake Department of Water & Power, through its conservation programs, works with local lodges and Private Home Rental Management Companies to encourage visitors to re-use towels & conserve water.  In addition, the City has a Water Conservation Ordinance in its Development Code (Chapter 17.11).  The City is looking in to designing a name for a ‘towel rebate program’, in which patrons of local hotels and lodging facilities receive a discount for re-using their room towels.  This would coincide with a recognition program for ‘green sustainable lodges’.

  • The City is part of a Valley-wide trails coalition that has identified bike routes and continues to work on a Bike Master Plan & signage.  In addition, staff is looking to expand the bike rack program.  The City is looking in to a building code standard to put more racks in when new development or rehab takes place.

  • Last year, the City purchased (2) Ford Escape hybrid vehicles to add to its fleet and is looking in to the feasibility of using dual fuel vehicles like the (2) propane/gas Ford trucks it currently owns.  ‘Clean Air Vehicle’ Decals are placed on all alternative fuel vehicles in the fleet.

  • Exploring Energy Alternative Options – Currently, the City’s sewer system (sanitation) monitoring is powered by solar panels.

  • The design for the new City Public Works Yard includes LEED equivalent components.  

  • The City replaces all light bulbs in City facilities with high-efficiency bulbs as replacement is needed.  In addition, staff will seek Bear Valley Electric’s assistance in conducting an energy audit of all lighting ballasts, etc. in City facilities to provide recommendations for better efficiency. 

  • The City is “working to become a zerowaste community.”  This stretches much further than just disposal needs being met at local Clean Bear Sites. Through negotiations with its waste hauler, the City is looking for a 35% reduction in waste (or meeting state standards (whichever is greater)) over the life of the contract, thereby reducing our carbon footprint. This may include separating green residential waste, replacing outdated vehicles, etc.  In addition, the City has already placed several ‘Big Belly’ solar trash receptacles in the Village as part of a demonstration project. City staff will continue to seek grant opportunities to purchase more of these receptacles. 

  • The City currently has programs in place for yard waste chipping and composting thru its Neighborhood Chipping Program, which allows residents to leave vegetation and brush at their curbside for pick-up. City crews pick up and chip the material and re-distribute it to those who want it for ground cover or mulch.  This program also reduces live fuels on properties, which, in turn, helps reduce fire risk.

  • The City’s Pavement Management Plan – pulverization techniques are used, which reuses existing material right at each street site.

  • Xeriscape plants and materials are included in Phase II design components for Boulder Bay Park.

  • Sidewalk projects promote connectivity.

  • Staff is seeking to secure grants for LED lights in City traffic signals.  In addition, staff continues to work on improving synchronization to ease traffic flow and congestion.

  • The City has several dog waste stations located throughout the community near trails and parks.  These help owners dispose of pet waste properly and helps with NPDES levels/pollution in to Big Bear Lake.

  • The City publicizes a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program in which residents can drop off materials such as oil, paint, batteries, etc. at Big Bear Disposal on a regular basis.  In addition, in partnership with Big Bear Disposal, the City holds two FREE waste collection days annually.  The City also has a Small Business Hazardous Waste Program, in partnership with the San Bernardino County Hazardous Materials Division, in which business owners can bring materials to Big Bear Disposal (Garstin Drive site) on the first Thursday of each month for disposal.
