With his soft-spoken manner and carefully coiffed silver mane, veteran real estate executive Hal Ellis hardly fits the role of industry upstart. But the 74-year-old founder and chief executive of CataList Homes Inc. is engaged in a well-funded and sometimes caustic campaign to upend the traditional way homes are sold in California.

Drewry Photocolor's profits fell 61% to $119,411, or 20 cents per share, during its first quarter ended July 27. Sales totaled $9.1 million, down 30% from the same period a year ago. Burbank-based Drewry is a wholesale photo-finishing company, processing film mostly for drugstore and supermarket customers. Hal Ellis, vice president for finance, said the company's weaker performance was caused by price cutting and loss of business to competitors.

In an effort to better compete with the biggest of the national residential real estate chains, Grubb & Ellis and Better Homes and Gardens agreed Monday to share support services and referrals among their offices in Southern California. It's not exactly a merger--neither is buying the other. The parties are choosing to call it an alliance. It will give Iowa-based Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Service a stronger presence in Southern California.

Time and time again, the good citizens of Arcadia have come before the Arcadia Planning Commission and the Arcadia City Council to oppose a new cul-de-sac or a monster house, which will alter the character of their neighborhood, block their view or destroy the privacy of their back yards. And time and time again, the city has responded, "The project meets all the code requirements" or "The developer has a right to develop his land" or "Sorry, but there is nothing we can do." So the people walk away, feeling destroyed and rejected, knowing that their lives and neighborhood are about to be radically altered.

Even as big money gets all the headlines, a surprising number of top executives are paid relatively modestly.
