Safety and Homeownership

Nef Cortez

One of the most important considerations when one is looking to buy a home is the safety of the community in which the home is located.  Diamond Bar has consistently ranked as one of the safest cities in the US, and without a question, in California.

I attended Supervisor Janice Hahn’s first Annual Public Safety Appreciation Barbecue Lunch today. It was co-sponsored with the Regional Chamber of Commerce of which I am a Board Member.  I was proud to help represent the Tri-Counties Association of Realtors in honoring our First Responders at this event.  I joined fellow Realtors Laura Greene, William Jia, Lily Valdivia-Rodriguez, Dennis Ni, and Raul at their table.

This event honors the men and women who provide us with the sense of safety that we all desire in the excellent quality of life that we are able to enjoy in this beautiful city of ours. Chief Parra represented Los Angeles County Sherriff Jim McDonald, who was not able to attend. He thanked Supervisor Hahn for her support of the work that the men and women of the Department do each and every day.

Los Angeles County Fire Department Chief Daryl L. Osby thanked Supervisor Hahn for her support, and mentioned that the Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department was the first in the world to incorporate the Paramedics within their scope of service. He mentioned that he was proud to have started his service under the leadership of  her father, Supervisor

Buyers looking to buy will always look to the safety of themselves and their loved ones, and they are sure to find it here in the Diamond Bar community.
