Jane St. John Named Champion of Mental Health 2019

Jane St. John of RE/MAX Estate Properties

Please join us in congratulating and recognizing Jane St. John on earning the Champion of Mental Health Award from Westchester’s Airport Marina Counseling Service. This award honors Jane’s hard work, contributions, and years of support in AMCS’s aim of providing affordable mental health treatment.  She received her philanthropic nature from her father, citing his love of giving back as an inspiration for her own work. In an article of her award in The HomeTown News, she stated, “…when I started to sell real estate, I thought, ‘If I’m going to sell homes in this community, I need to give back.’”

St. John became associated with AMCS in the 1980s and emphasizes the importance of mental health services for individuals, groups, and especially children. She expresses notably how necessary these services are to young children during adolescence, puberty, and transitional station. “Whether kids are bullied at school or dealing with identity challenges, these life transitions are hard to get through without guidance.”

Jane St. John will be honored at the Spring into Well-Being Celebration.

Outside of AMCS, Jane St. John supports other community organizations including Helen’s Room, a non-profit organization that provides a confidence-boosting service for cancer patients. Jane herself is a breast cancer survivor. Other organizations where Jane gives her support are the Education Foundation and the LAX Coastal Chamber. She also helps organize multiple community events such as the Playa del Rey Toy Drive, the Rock Roll & Run, and Jet to Jetty. Her kindness and selflessness show how one person can change many lives. Jane will be honored April 11, 2019, at the Airport Marina Counseling Service Spring into Well-Being Celebration. Tickets are $150. Congratulations, Jane!

No Place You’d Rather Be

Sandy feet, sun-kissed noses and the distant rustling of white water.

There is something undoubtedly calming about walking down The Strand, the scenic walking and biking path which connects Manhattan and Hermosa Beach along beachfront real estate. The Manhattan Beach represents all that we love about Southern California living: simplicity, ease, and distinct style. The rumors are true, life slows down at the beach, which is why people are always vying for their own place to call home in the notable, luxurious and well-established Manhattan Beach Sand Section.

During the Second Quarter of 2017, a total of 28 homes in Manhattan Beach Sand Section sold on the market. The average sold price was $4,078,800*. The highest sale closed at $21,000,000 and sits on The Strand itself.

We’ve hand-selected two homes currently For Sale that you absolutely MUST see before they are gone. Both homes are located on the highly-coveted Bayview Drive, which sits merely steps away the ocean.
