I see a lot of homes.  Some are ... well ... not so nice.  And others ... absolutely amazing!!  Sometimes I even get to see them on the same day!  Really interesting to see the spectrum of wealth in the community.  The high end homes are always a bit more interesting!

This one is located in La Jolla Farms above Blacks Beach ... and can be your for the low low price of $12,800,000!

Enjoy!

I've been on the VA fee panel for almost 10 years now and pride myself on being able to help veterans refinance their existing mortgages or get fair prices on their new home purchase.  Changes to the VA program will now allow veterans to by more house without an increased down payment!  Thank you for your service!

I remember seeing Joe Satriani at the California theater way back in 1990!  It is a shame it has fallen into such disrepair ... but glad to hear it will be given new life!

This is a shift we have been watching since last fall when DOM began increasing, reductions in list prices became more prevalent, and inventory began increasing.  There seems to be a bit of a reprieve here in the spring but we will continue to watch the trend.

I've been in San Diego for 30 years and have always thought the Embaradero needed a major uplift.  They started a few years ago with the Waterfront Park and the improvements to Broadway.  Can't wait to see what else they have in store!

We have just complete the green appraiser certification course through Earth Advantage and Build It Green!  The course was a wealth of information on green building techniques, sustainable building concepts, and the valuation of green building components.
