ARG Blog,

October, 2011

ARG Abbott Realty Group added several new client and agent services in September and October. Clients will enjoy our new Cloud CMA software when relying on ARG agents to help them value their current home for sale, or assess potential purchases. This dynamic program takes MLS and private sale data and puts the data into easy-to-understand reports. It contains a QR code creator and brochure function, too. Initial client response has been overwhelmingly positive – prompting one longtime buyer to state “Finally, something I can read!” Most agents rely on hard-to-decipher MLS reports that do little to enlighten buyers or sellers. ARG agents now have access to Cloud CMA that, not only gives them current data, but dispels the inaccuracies in evaluation sites like Zillow whose “zestimates” create more confusion than anything else. Contact your ARG agent for a Cloud CMA demo on your home or any property you have an interest in purchasing. Our CAREERS section at ARGSD.COM ramped up its outreach to area Realtors and offered a new COMPREHENSIVE BUSINESS ASSESSMENT for new and experienced agents. A 52-week marketing tip email campaign as well as an audio option on how to dominate online marketing is now available. ARG continues to lead area brokerages in its forward-thinking leadership and planning. Our Marketing Administrator Jessica Turner has developed the ARG Handsfree Agent Marketing system for agents interested in building their listing inventory through mail and online campaigns. The great thing about it? ARG agents just say when, what and where and Jessica does everything else from design, content, mail/email lists all the way to the post office! ARG Handsfree marketing gives our agents more time to focus on client services while they build their brand automatically. Several large sales were negotiated by ARG agents over the past month with sales prices approaching $2,000,000 in La Jolla and Sunset Cliffs. High end buyers are coming to ARG primarily through the referral work of our seasoned staff and I applaud and marvel at just how hard ARG agents work to find just the right properties for all our buyer-clients. I’m very proud of the way ARG agents continue to thrive in a market that has forced many agents to leave the industry. ARG aired seven television ads on HGTV over 200 times in September. If you missed them, go to ARGSD.COM and click on our youtube channel to view them all. In September, ARG wrapped up its training on the Dr. Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. We will spend the rest of the year integrating these principles into our work and personal lives. It’s amazing to see how much better work can be when we use tenets like “SYNERGIZE” and “THINK WIN-WIN” just to name a few. ARG agents and staff have propelled into the 4th quarter of 2011 with success under their belts and optimism that America’s Finest City remains the best place in the county to live and work. Be sure to call us or recommend us whenever you need residential real estate services.

America’s Finest City — Fall Outlook

Things to do and see in San Diego By Jessica Turner

San Diego is never short on local events, but Fall brings some of the most anticipated events of the year with it. Whether you’re looking to get out of town and fill up on some apples, or embrace your inner German, or if you’re just excited to walk the streets of Kensington while listening to music, and eating street food; San Diego has you covered.

Foody San Diego Restaurant Week Sept 18th-22nd For $20-$40 you can “experience cuisine that delights your palate and defines the art of dining in San Diego. Held twice annually, this beloved culinary tradition features discounted prix fixe menus from more than 180 of San Diego’s best restaurants.” And this year, in addition to the 3 course dinners, some restaurants are offering 2 course lunches. Bonus! This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Adams Avenue Street Fair, and even though each year is better than the last, you can bet that this year is going to blow them all away. San Diego’s largest free musical festival is Sept 24th 10am-9pm & Sept 25th 10am-6pm. In addition to the exciting and diverse music line-up, there will be beer gardens, a micro brew tasting zone, giant carnival rides, and more than 200 food, arts and craft vendors selling their specialties throughout the festival. We’re so lucky to have a quaint hill-top town like Julian less than an hour away. Even better, they’ve got apples and they know how to use them. Julian Apple Days is a two day Festival that will be held at Menghini Winery featuring apple displays, music & dancing, an antique tractor display, children’s games and activities, gold panning demonstrations, a beer and wine garden, food and merchandise vendors, and of course, apple pie Oct 1st & 2nd from 10am-5pm both days. If you make it out on Sunday, be sure to stay for the Mr. & Mrs. Apple Days coronation at 1pm. Each fall, Little Italy opens up its arms and we all come running. This year’s Little Italy Festa! is Sunday Oct 9th from 10am-6pm. It’s one of the largest (120,000 attendees last year) Italian American festivals on the West Coast, with the tantalizing sights, sounds and aromas of Italian culture. A full palette of Italian cuisine is complemented by traditional and modern Italian music, arts and crafts as well as a tribute to San Diego’s rich Italian American heritage

Military MCAS Miramar, is home of the Third Marine Aircraft Wing, and the largest and best military air show in the nation. The theme for the 2011 MCAS Miramar Air Show, which runs from Sept 30 through Oct. 2, is “A Salute to San Diego: Birthplace of Naval Aviation 1911-2011,” in honor of the centennial of both Naval and Marine Aviation. Fleet Week San Diego honors and celebrates the men and women of the military through public events that entertain, and alliances that thank and support these heroes. This year’s event is Sept 16th – Oct 2nd and has a long list of events. Visit http://www.fleetweeksandiego.org/events.html for the full list and information on each.

Artsy San Diego Film Festival is “redefining the film-going experience with a new take on how you watch films. We are a buzz-building, posh-partying, red-carpet-ready film festival.   American’s Finest City is our location.” The film fest is held at the Gaslamp Theater, and will open with Will Reisner’s new film “50/50” on Sept 28th. The festival ends Oct 2nd. The 2011 La Jolla Art & Wine Festival is on Oct 1st and 2nd 10am - 6pm Event admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children 12 and under, military, and senior (65 and above) and free for children 2 and under.  The event donates all proceeds to the three area public schools - La Jolla, Torrey Pines, and Bird Rock Elementary - to help underfunded programs such as art, music, science, physical education, technology, and on-site medical care by a school nurse.
