In today’s show, Paul tells us about the fiery Halloween that was experienced in Ventura County & surrounding areas this year.  The “Easy” fire, the “Getty fire, and the “Maria” fire, all happened on, or near, Halloween.  The Easy fire was in Simi Valley, the Getty fire was near the Getty museum in Los Angeles, and the Maria fire started on a mountaintop between the city of Santa Paula and the township of Somis.

Paul talks specifically about the Maria fire, how it affected an area of Somis where he has a ranch property for sale, and explains the reasons why that ranch is still standing today.

Tune in and learn how a quick-thinking ranch hand and a 15,000 gallon cistern helped keep this ranch, and those surrounding it, from burning down!  A fascinating & incredible story!

About Paul:

For the past 17+ years I have specialized in selling country estates and ranches throughout Ventura County CA. This niche stems from my childhood, working long summer days on my grandparent’s citrus and avocado ranch near Santa Paula, just east of Ventura.

I love these types of properties, and it is my desire to help families, individuals and investors from all walks of life achieve their dream of owning a ranch or country estate.
