Welcome to Just Ask Molly

Thanks for stopping by. JustAskMolly.com is a free local resource for friends, family, clients and potential clients of The Hobin Company. It is meant to be a fun site with local resources, favorite hot spots, and a weekly blog featuring upcoming events, new restaurant openings, local real estate news, travel adventures and more. For some reason, while I was growing up in Northern California with my three younger brothers, and throughout high school, my years at UCLA and during my real estate career, my family and friends would always say "Just Ask Molly". I would constantly get calls and emails with questions like, "I am going to be in Santa Monica tonight and where should I go for dinner? " or "I am going to San Francisco where should I stay?" or "I need the name of a good plumber " ? So... after much urging from my three brothers, I launched JustAskMolly.com to create a database with local resources and fun places that I have been or that have come highly recommended to me by others. Check back frequently for updates and sign up for the blog. Thanks very much!

LIFE IS SHORT... ...ENJOY THE RIDE !!!!
