The term "San Diego Native" barely scratches the surface regarding my ties to the San Diego area. I was born at Scripps and attended Rancho Santa Fe Elementary School. During this time, I lived in The Covenant of Rancho with my family. In high school, our family moved 2 miles down the road to Del Mar on 18th street. I graduated from Torrey Pines High School in Del Mar. As a family, we moved back into Rancho Santa Fe on Loma Linda Street. After graduation, I moved to Milan, Italy, to pursue a career in fashion. After 10 years of traveling the globe and etching France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Taipei into my resume, I decided to hang up my "Runway Shoes" and move back home to San Diego to be near my family. I bought a townhouse in Del Mar and proceeded to once again take the educational leap all the way to downtown San Diego and attend the University of San Diego. I graduated in my late 30's with a degree in Business Administration.
I describe myself as "a real local with an international influence." As I drive my clients around looking at properties, they are amazed and intrigued by all the stories and history of North County. Being here my whole life has also given me a decided advantage because I am familiar with the San Diego "General Plan", and I have annually watched where certain localities have changed from being wetlands in a floodplain to an area re-zoned for a building.
North County, mainly Rancho Santa Fe and its surrounding communities (Whispering Palms, The Bridges, Fairbanks, The Crosby, Del Sur), are my specialties. 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 and perks of every country club in San Diego.
I thoroughly know the ins and outs of coastal properties with protected views, such as in Del Mar, Solana Beach, Encinitas, Leucadia, and I have orchestrated some of the larger purchases in the beach lying areas.
I have had the distinct pleasure of representing buyers who have relocated from all parts of the world. Because of my international experience, I am sensitive to the cultural differences and concerns you might have in relocating and buying property on American soil. It is a fantastic investment now with international currencies holding strong against the dollar. I have also had the pleasure of working with professional athletes, entertainers and a few of the Fortune 500 start-up owners.
Whether you are purchasing or selling, I have your best interests at heart. The purchasing and selling process can seem daunting and overwhelming, and not always clear, but I will work with you each step of the way to ensure that you are informed, comfortable and confident with the housing choices that you make!"
