  • You are a current or past client of Dave Fratello and/or Confidential Realty; or
  • You are not a current client, but you would consider hiring Dave Fratello and/or Confidential Realty at such time as you were actively considering buying, selling or leasing property in Manhattan Beach or nearby areas.

Additional terms of use are:

MLS Data and 'Insider' Info & Usage

  • All information obtained by you from the this website is intended only for your personal, noncommercial use;

  • You acknowledge that we may disapprove or discontinue your “Insider” subscription and status at any time, for any reason, including in response to any apparent or actual violation of these Terms of Use.

Now, don’t worry! We’re not forcing you to become a client just to read the blog or access specific information. You should feel free to hire anyone at any time – or no one.
