Growing up on the Central Coast has giving me a care for the area and the people who live or would like to live here. I feel San Luis Obispo County is the most enjoyable place in the world to live. Other places are very nice to visit and spend time, but nothing compares with the climate, people, communities, and natural beauty of this area.
Much of my time is spent studying the Cambria real estate market, seeing what is for sale and building websites. I contructed and maintain a Central Coast IDX search mechanism that allows searches of all the properties in the MLS database which consists of over 5,000 properties from Pismo Beach to Cambria. I feel providing this is much more effective than limiting searches to just the homes for sale listed by an individual brokerage. The internet is about information, and a lot of it, in as clear and easy to use a manner as possible.
I utilize the computer and internet to accomplish all my transactions and try to use as little paper as possible. Not just to save a tree =P but because it is the future of the industry. If you are interested in purchasing a home or any other Cambria real estate property or in Morro Bay, San Simeon, Cayucos or any where in San Luis Obispo County I'm sure I can give you the best service possible.
I have been in every area of San Luis Obispo County. From the historic Santa Maria hotel and downtown, Arroyo Grande mustang waterslides, the Pismo Beach pier, Avila Beach hot springs and orchards, San Luis Obispo, Cal Poly, stunning Morro Rock and bay, Cayucos beach, Atascadero ranches, Templeton livestock, Paso Robles vineyards, San Simeon’s Hearst Castle, and my hometown of Cambria – pines by the sea. The Central Coast sells itself in beauty and we as Realtors are here to help you find the part that will suit you best.
The Central Coast of California is perfectly situated between the cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles. Just far away from both to not be disturbed by the chaos of big city life, but not so remote that the drive can’t be made in a few hours to either destination. Many retirees from the big cities have made this community their home and have found its charm and beauty incomparable.
Cambria real estate in particular is like spring time year round. When I was younger I had no concept of seasons because I never noticed any difference. The only difference was the school schedule. Summer to me was when school got out, not when waves of unbearable heat come. Winter was Christmas and holidays, not freezing cold and shoveling snow. Though the temperatures do change mildly paradise is never lost.
Realtors must know what they are selling. We are not just selling a listing or an investment to a person we are selling a community and the region where a person will live. This investment will be one of the largest purchases you will ever make. Before you step into a large mortgage loan you want to know Cambria real estate is right for you.
As a buyer you need confidence in the people you are working with. To know their sales career is stable, the contract you are entering is sound, the market is ready for you, and you are ready for the market. You can view my blog for information about the market around the state and in Cambria and San Luis Obispo County, also some tips, news, and recent sales statistics.
As a seller you want to be sure you are going to get the most for your home. Listing agents sometimes try to build up more and more listings but lose site of the special needs of the individual listing. If you are trying to find an agency who will service your listing and appreciate the value of your home try Sand Shell.
