As the market leader in promoting properties, I understand the power and possibilities of marketing. In this issue, I categorize Summer sales in the individual neighborhoods. I also share with you how I sold one of our latest listings within 24 hours, creating the highest marketed resale in that specific neighborhood this year. From there, get to know our luxury vendors and how we define our close relationships with them. I also share with you a few of my favorite new listings, and showcase some of my recent solds. Find out why our listing to sale time was the shortest on the market for the 92127 zipcode in 2010, and why we consistently represent the highest sales in your neighborhood! I hope you enjoy this edition of our magazine!

Katharina achieves the impossible….again! It rarely, if ever, happens to home. But then, this was more than just a home. It was a stunning 4,000 square foot Tuscan retreat tucked away in the exclusive gated community of Avaron. 15627 Jube Wright Court to be exact. And against all odds, it sold in one day! That’s right. From listing to escrow in approximately 24 hours! How did we manage this mind-boggling feat without the assistance of a magic wand, secret amulet, and assorted four-leaf clovers? In a word, STAGING. This strategic icing on the cake made the property impossible to resist. I’m proud to say the last comparable home that sold in this community featured a much larger floor plan. We captured premium price for this gorgeous Del Sur home, even though it was smaller. What did it sell for? Top dollar! $150,000 over the last comparable sale…now the highest 2011 marketed Avaron resale price per foot in the greater community. If you’d like to learn more about marketing your San Diego County home to sell, I’ll be delighted to help. As one of the area’s premier Real Estate professionals, I can offer you expert staging services and a targeted plan designed to match your property with the right buyer.
