I met Ingrid as her coach for a Team In Training event to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. After the race event I met with Ingrid and Robert to discuss their plan to move up to a newer and larger home for their kids and family pets. It was time for a nice yard and some space. The first step was to sell a home in Descanso where Robert’s family had owned land for more than 30 years. It took some time, but a perfect buyer came along who liked the country feel of Descanso. Then we focused on selling their townhome in Scripps Ranch after making a few improvements. We timed the sale of their Scripps Ranch home with the purchase of their new home in Escondido to close escrow on the same day. I’m so happy to have helped Ingrid and Robert achieve this plan, and they can now host larger family gatherings in their beautiful new home.
My buyer clients Jeff and Lisa were looking for an investment property. We found a nice 2-bedroom, 2-bath condo in Talmadge being sold as a short sale. Thanks to very patient clients we finally closed about 20 months after the unit had originally been listed for sale.
It was an honor to list a home in Descanso that had been in the family of one of my clients for two generations. They built the home on land the family had owned since 1974. It was an emotional sale, but my clients are pleased that another family will enjoy the home they built.
It’s been a privilege to represent Doug and his wife on the sale of their home in Serra Mesa. They’ve been neighbors of mine since I moved to Serra Mesa in 2000. They decided to make a big move to be closer to their grandchildren on the east cost. So we met in January and discussed how to prepare the house to get top dollar in this current San Diego market. I spent more than 5 weeks helping the seller manage multiple vendors who updated the exterior and interior paint and ceilings, re-finished the wood floors, updated the light fixtures and hardware, and put in new landscaping. It was well worth it. We received more than 30 offers in less than two weeks most of them above asking price. Now it’s up to the new owners to take good care of this wonderful home.
I’m very proud to represent the sellers of a beautifully remodeled home in my own neighborhood of Serra Mesa 92123. This home has 4 bedrooms and 2 baths, 1570 square feet of living area plus a family room measuring about 300 square feet. It’s a perfect, single family home in one of San Diego’s most desirable neighborhoods where I happen to live myself.
It was my honor to be the Team In Training coach when Jessica successfully completed the 2010 Los Angeles Marathon. I was so pleased to meet up with her again when she and Phil began searching for a home in early 2012. They decided to make a big change from downtown San Diego condo living to a beautiful home in Carlsbad. They tell me Barkley likes his new home too!
When George and his family had outgrown their home in Chula Vista, they and wanted to find a new home with more space. I showed them a beautiful home in Bonita that was being sold as a short sale. There were some nervous moments waiting for the seller’s lenders to agree to the short sale so it was a thrill and an honor to be able to hand over the keys to George and his wonderful family.
We had a blast at the Serra Mesa Community Fair. We loved meeting so many of our neighbors who came by our Christmas themed booth. Several people signed up an won iPod Shuffles.
These are my clients, Kris and Susan, whom I first met as a coach for Team In Training. They are both active in all of the TNT sports. It was my honor to help them find their beautiful, recently remodeled home in the Rancho Penasquitos section of San Diego. They can hear the Mount Carmel High School band practices from their back yard and may become fans of the Sundevil sports teams.
