Free Estate Planning Seminars at Casa Romantica

The courtyard at Casa Romantica Cultural Center above San Clemente pier.

Free---Casa Romantica
Hosts Educational Estate
Planning Seminars

My Orange County PR, Publicity and Web Marketing Consultant husband, Bill Koelzer and I just love the look, feel, ocean view, ambiance, decor, architecture, courtyard, patios, exhibits and grandeur of San Clemente's own Casa Romantica Cultural Center.....
Every time as an Orange County Realtor that I sell San Clemente real estate to a home buyer just moving here, I make sure to show them the Casa Romantica in all its glory.
Below is just one of the many FREE events that shows how wise we, in our community, were to NOT turn the former home of our city's founder, Ole Hanson, into a Mexican restaurant.
We derisively called that suggestion by several restaurateur entrepreneurs the "Taco Romantica" iniative as we were opposing their idea.
Ultimately community acclaim, kicked off by an anonymous million dollar donation, led to the Casa Romantica renovation.

Read about a terrific FREE Event at the Casa Romantica
that goes on over the next eight weeks:

    FootHill South 241 Toll Road Stays Alive.

    The Transportation Corridor Agencies in its quest to build the last 16 miles of the 241 Toll Road.

    The TCA this month got approvals and consensus from the Calfornia Dept. of Fish and Game and the U.S. Department of fish and wildlife. The two organizations are effectively saying that the road DOES NOT wipe out any species and mitigates any damage done by replacing wild areas damaged by the road.

    This is a major step in okaying the 241's completion through South Orange County real estate.

    The U.S. Secretary of Commerce has taken public comments on the issue.
