Just when you thought the era of palatial hotels had ended with the robber barons, along comes the Grand Del Mar, a 2-month-old resort, golf course, spa and great big guilty pleasure. Enjoying the near-decadent levels of luxury made me question my commitment to democratic ideals.

REAL ESTATE
November 28, 1999 | JULIE TAMAKI and SUE McALLISTER, TIMES STAFF WRITERS
Some real estate agents will do anything to get your attention. There's the agent who hired a farmer to deliver 500 pumpkins to San Fernando Valley homes at Halloween. And the one who throws an annual "baby party" at her Hancock Park home where new mothers--some former clients, some not--are invited to show off their cherubs. And then there's the agent who sends 40,000 mailers--each month--to homeowners and apartment owners in the cities surrounding his Whittier office.
