Spring Sells All Year Long in San Diego

Real Estate Broker/Owner - Keller Williams
The holidays bring a welcome slow down to our lives.  We take well deserved breaks and spend time with family and friends.  It is also a time to reflect on the year and focus upon success in 2014. The slow calming effect of the holidays does not apply to real estate.  The end of the calendar year...
This week my family visited friends that live in a house that was built in the 1950's in North Clairemont.  The houses in this neighborhood were originally modest in size and most owners have added on.  Their house had a large addition too.  They told me that they loved the house except the close...
Downtown San Diego has parks galore.  One of my favorite family activities is to take the boys over to Seaport Village to play by the water.  It is amazing to see how much fun we can have with bubbles and a breeze. The boys also enjoy the view of "The Blue Bridge".  That is there term for the Cor...
  Easter traditions in San Diego are as varied as our cultural landscape. Many people gather in Balboa Park to find colored plastic eggs in the midst of our urban meadows. Some people take in a service at one of our many churches. Brunch in Coronado is also another sure winner. Most of the count...
San Diego has so much to offer.  The weather is usually the first win that comes to mind.  After that the beaches and the proximity to Mexico are big wins.  The tourist attractions such as Sea World, the Gas Lamp District, Lego Land, the Coronado Bridge and Balboa Park are amazing too. For me th...
Some Real Estate Brokers have told me, "Open Houses don't work.  Don't waste your time."  I've heard this for years.  Luckily I have not listened. My team conducts 1-3 open houses every week.  On a slow week we will do one open house.  We blow the doors off of our competition no matter how many w...
When you have a new prospect do you look them up online?  Do you "Google them"?  Do you look for them elsewhere online? Don't feel guilty if you do.  It is no different than looking up a restaurant in Little Italy before you sit down at a table.  Being familiar with the menu before you commit is ...
  Please let me know if this is a unique aspect of Southern California:  the Sprinkling Party.  It is new concept for me.  Many of my friends are being blessed with their second or third children.  When they were pregnant or adopting for the first time many of them had a Baby Shower.  In my case...
Mission Valley has a lot to offer.  I used to think that if I lived in San Diego it only made sense to live downtown or by the beach.  Like many things in life, I was wrong.  Dead wrong.  Mission Valley is in the center of it all. Mission Valley has easy access to the San Diego Trolleys.  There i...
  Now that we are back from the holidays - How do you manage to take care of your clients when you are away?  Many of us are guilty of being "on vacation" while a cell phone is permanently attached to the side of our head.  That has been me.  I'm working hard not to work so hard this year forward...
