Using the term "San Diego Native" barely scratches the surface of my ties to the San Diego Area. I was born at Scripps and attended Rancho Santa Fe Elementary School in Rancho Santa Fe. During this time I lived in The Covenant of Rancho with my Family. In high school, our family moved a whole 2 miles down the road to Del Mar on 18th street. For high school I attended Torrey Pines High School in Del Mar Heights. As a family we moved back into Rancho Santa Fe on Loma Linda Street. After high school I did move to Milan, Italy the same day to pursue a career in Fashion. After 10 years of traveling the globe and working in France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Taipei I decided to hang up my "Runway Shoes" and move back home to San Diego to be near my family. I bought a town home in Del Mar and proceeded to once again take the educational leap all the way down to Downtown San Diego and attend University of San Diego in Old Town. I graduated in my late 30''s with a degree in Business Administration. More Less
So am I a real local with an international influence? I would say you are about right. Most of my clients enjoy all the stories of the history of North County from growing up here while we are driving and looking at properties. Being here my whole life also gives me a decided advantage because I am familiar with the San Diego "General Plan" and have watched over the years where certain localities have changed from being wetlands in a flood plain to an area re zoned for building.
North County, mainly Rancho Santa Fe and its surrounding communities (Whispering Palms, The Bridges, Fairbanks, The Crosby, Del Sur) are my specialities. I grew up here, rode my horses here and know the value one area has over another. I am a Country Club Specialist in San Diego and can give you all the facts of each and every country club in San Diego.
Coastal properties with protected views such as in Del Mar, Solana Beach, Encinitas, Leucadia I know well and orchestrated some of the larger purchases in the beach lying areas.
As far as buyers, I have had the distinct pleasure of representing buyers relocating from all over the globe. Because of my international past, I am sensitive to the cultural differences and concerns you might have relocating and buying property on American soil. It is a fantastic investment now with international currencies holding strong against the dollar. Professional Athletes, entertainers and a few of the Fortune 500 start up owners I have had the pleasure to work with .
Whether you are purchasing or selling, I have your interests at heart. It can be a "slippery slope" with the purchasing or selling process not always clear. I work with you each step of the way to insure that you are informed, comfortable and confident with the housing choices that you make!
