Del Sur Home Sold in 6 Days for 102% of Ask



After attending our Annual Community Pie Giveaway last year, these homeowners decided to meet with our Head of Listing Department to learn more about our business and we have become so successful in their community.

Why Agents Take Overpriced Listings

Why would an agent take an overpriced listing? At first glance it would be a silly and pretty much stupid thing for an agent to do.  Why would an agent want to spend their time and money marketing a property that they aren’t sure will be able to sell and by most any objective measure is overpriced?

Best Pets for Your San Diego Home

If you’re thinking about adopting a new furry family member, you should always take into account the amount of space you have for your new addition.

San Diego has beautiful beaches, and some, like San Elijo State Beach allow dogs; but if having a dog won’t work for your space, fear not! Finding a furry friend to share your space, however large or small your space may be, is easy, and we’ve got a great guide for you.
